Welcome July ICLW'ers!!

Hi all!  So this is my second month doing ICLW and last month I didn't do too well keeping up with posting.  This week I'm going to try harder!!  So, welcome if this is the first time you have come to my blog.  A bit about me--my hubby and I have been married for 8 years.  We've been trying to conceive for at least 6 of them but the last year or so things got more interesting.  We found out that hubby has obstructive azoospermia, there's a block somewhere that prohibits sperm from getting out.  It's been a long road of several devastating s/a results coming up zeros before it was diagnosed.  Last September we started the process of IVF at ICRM (Ida.ho Cente.r for Rep.roductive Medic.ine) and through a series of tests we found first, that hubby has mobile sperm in his testes and second I have hypothyroidism.  Hubby had to have the PESA procedure to extract sperm and have them frozen before we were able to begin IVF.  Sperm were successfully frozen and my hypothyroidism was remedied through a tiny pill I have to take once a day for the rest of my life!

We are currently in the 2WW for IVF #1.  I am currently on 3dt7dpt--or 10DPO....I have my first blood test tomorrow but I won't get results from that until Monday.  I will probably POAS sometime this weekend as it will probably drive me nuts not knowing this weekend.  I haven't had a whole lot of symptoms except for being really crampy 8DPO pretty much all day and being super tired--which could be simply a reaction to the drugs.  I would appreciate all the baby dust you can spare :)  Please look around my site for more info about me if you'd like!  Thanks for stopping by!
