It's that time already?

Welcome all you ICLWers. I can not believe it is this time again. I feel like it was just ICLW last week. This year has just flown by. Let me give you a recap of me for all of you who are new to this blog and the regulars. I hope you all have a safe and very MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Name: Michelle
Age: 34 (soon to be 35)
Diagnosis: PCOS
TTC: For over 8 yrs. In the process I have had 3 lost babies. 2 early miscarriage and 2 ectopics.

I live in Michigan and right now it is COLD!!!! and very snowy! I hate this weather but as they say here wait 5 minutes and it will change.

I have been married to my DH for 8 1/2 years but we have been together for 15 1/2. we have lived together for pretty much the whole time. He is a truly wonderful man and I do not know what I would do or where I would be without him.

My sis has 2 kids Jo.ey and No.ah that I talk about often here. They can always be counted on to bring a smile to my face. I can not wait to spend Christmas with them. Jo.ey is 3 and No.ah is almost 2. I love them with all my heart.

Currently I am on "break" from TTC because I had a mc in July and I want to stay sane. Also I need to save money for IVF. I will probably go in sometime in February or March to try one more round of injections with added progesterone. My RE never gave me progesterone before even though I have proven to have early mc and I have PCOS. So we are going to try it this time. I hope it works because I am not sure how I will afford IVF.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and I hope to talk soon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I can not wait for 2009!

Thanks for stopping by. I cannot imagine living with all that snow. NOOOOOOOOOO. It's plenty cold in Jersey but usually we can escape winter with just a snowfall or two.

I'm a MI girl- born and raised in the suburbs or Detroit. I love how you talk about your nephews. I feel the same way about mine. Have a wonderful holiday with them!

Love the intro! :)

I just read that you survived your blizzard. We are suppose to get 5 more inches today, we just got 8 on Saturday and 4 last Tuesday.

Best of the luck with the IVF.

Have a wonderful holiday.

I know, I can't believe it's ICLW time again, either.

Thanks for stopping by ... this my first ICLW and I think it's great. Having the support and hugs of others makes this TTC journey so much easier.

I can't relate to the snow, I live in Houston and it snowed for about 2 hours here last week. It's 32 degrees this morning and we are freezing! As you can see, we are not used to the cold.

Nice to meet you "again" Michelle. I commend you for taking a "break" - good for sanity.
