Welcome ICLW

Welcome to all those participating in ICLW. Not sure how it will work out, but we'll see. I almost forgot it started today!! I'll introduce myself a little bit.

My name is Krystal, I've been married 8 1/2 years to my husband who joined the Navy shortly before we married. I have one son, Andrew, who is almost 4 1/2 years old who was a miracle of primary infertility (and one miscarriage).

Now we're suffering secondary infertility as well. We've been TTC since April 2007 without success carrying to term. I had a 6w2d miscarriage in September 2009 and a 8w3d miscarriage in May 2010. So... the wounds are still fresh. I'm trying to deal. I still haven't found out why I'm suffering RPL, the tests so far are normal - all I know for sure is I have PCOS, Vitamin D deficiency and Insulin Resistance (this diagnosis is old so I need to test again). All those make me higher risk for a miscarriage, which makes it tougher to want to try. But I want more children, always hoped I'd have a sibling for my son. I just never expected it would take this long...

Visiting and wanted to thank you for all of your kind comments over the past few weeks. Loss sucks, and miscarriage risk sucks. Good luck...

Thank you for visiting my blog and following. I'm always eager to find others with PCOS and IR, so I'm following you now as well. I'm sorry about your loss in May, we had losses around the same time. I hope that we both get siblings for our sons soon. Happy ICLW!

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. First, I'm very sorry about your losses. After trying for so hard to get something and then have it taken away must be really devastating. I can imagine that secondary IF is really tough, too. Yes, you've got a child and you experienced the joys of pg and birth and motherhood...but why won't your body do it again? I haven't been in your shoes, but I can only imagine how difficult it has been for you. Second, to answer your question from your post on my blog...yes, Wendy's Frosty. It's like soft serve ice cream but in a cup that you eat with a spoon before it has time to melt into a milkshake. :-) Completely yummy!
