Usually I just lurk on the IComLeavWe list, but I'm feeling brave today, so here goes... Welcome, ICLW-ers!
A little bit about me: I'm just your average, disillusioned PCOS-er (PCOS = Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) who has been trying to get knocked up for the last three years. (Unsuccessfully, I might add.) We've done way more clomid cycles than we should have, threw in a couple IUI's just for the heck of it, and now we're getting all our ducks in a row so we can start IVF. My husband (we'll call him C) really is Prince Charming in most ways, but has been in complete denial when it comes to our inability to conceive. For example, this sweet little exchange happened at the ultrasound for our second IUI:
Doctor (walking out the door): Well, we've got some great-looking follicles! (laughingly) We did discuss the possibility of multiples, right?
C (looking at me with wide eyes): Multiples? I thought that only happened with fertility drugs!
Me (half-dressed, with my legs still up in the air, wildly grasping around for something to throw at him): What do you think the clomid is, frigging candy?
Good times. I'll blame it on the clomood; I'm not usually violent. C says that I used to be somewhat cheerful, even. Lately, I've just been pensive - so if you've never been here before and you're tempted to do some back reading, may I offer you some cheese to go with the whine?
