  • March 2008 – bought a house and decided to sink all our baby money in a new kitchen.
  • May 2008 – sucked it up and called RE for another round, but plans were dashed due to unexpected raise in cost.
  • July 2008 – Its been a year since we tried. Still baby poor but have a lovely kitchen. Guess we’re still on hold. How much can you win off a lottery scratcher??
  • Jan 2009 – Start of a new beginning, a new round of IVF, and a new problem.  Now Mark is sterile?  WTF man?  IVF canceled.   Testing of Mark’s testies (and brain and blood and ability to create origami) started.  Will continue for the next 3 months.

    Hi – I was wondering if you would tell me how you “promote” your blogspot so that I was able to google it. I was working on a blog about my IVF debacle also, cause it’s just good to vent, but never could figure out how to get it to pop up in google.

    We have some similar experiences. I enjoyed reading your blogspot.
