Welcome ICLW’s! This is my first one and I hope to get some comments from current blog friends and also from some new viewers. If you are not familiar with ICLW, click here to read all about it and get the links of all the blogs participating this month. I will give a quick update of our story and where we stand right now, but click on the About and TTC Timeline sections to view all the details. My husband was diagnosed with MFI (more specifically morphology) in January 2012. After 3 failed IUI’s (2 with trigger shot), we are about to begin our first cycle of IVF with ICSI. I am currently taking BCP’s and will start my first meds (Lupron) on August 8th. Click here to view my specific protocol. As my blog title indicates, my husband and I are cautiously optimistic heading into this cycle of IVF and hope this is the answer to our hope for a baby. I hope you enjoy my blog and look forward to reading all of your comments!
