October ICLW!

Hello ICLW-ers! Welcome to my blog. My husband and I live in British Columbia (near Vancouver), are both nurses (I work with babies in the community and he is in the operating room) and have been trying to create a mini version of ourselves since February 2010. After many months of trying naturally, 3 months of plain Clomid, a surgery to fix a septated uterus and remove a polyp, 3 IUIs with Clomid and 1 seemingly doomed round of IVF we are finally expecting! It is still VERY early (just had my first Beta on Friday) but we are hopeful that this will be it for us. Join me this week as I get a second Beta and find out when my first ultrasound is going to be. Despite our dismal odds with only 2 embryos created out of 12 mature eggs, it seems like my Beta could be strong enough for twins! We'll just have to wait and see! Looking forward to getting to know you all better.
