Hello to any new readers from IComLeavWe!

For those new to the blog, I am a 31 year old teacher, living near Boston, with the hubby and 2 cats. We have been TTCing since January 2010, with PCOS and one miscarriage in tow. After many months of anovulation, Clomid, injectable IUI cycles and cysts, we did an IVF cycle in January that had failed fertilization. We did another IVF cycle with ICSI this time in April, and got a BFP. I am currently pregnant and really hoping to stay that way full term. I hope you'll explore the blog and follow me.

You can find a lot of info about my history under the TTC Curriculum Vitae page.

Thanks for reading and if you send me some comment love, I'll be sure to reciprocate!


  1. I read your blog through Resolve, and just wanted to drop in and say thanks for writing your experiences with IF (I've been scrolling through this blog for the past half hour). I am a 29 year old woman living in Boston and my husband and I have been trying for over a year to get pregnant. I was recently dx with PCOS also and it's a really confusing issue to have. I feel like I've done many similar things as you (exercise, weight loss, then weight gain, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, Clomid, IUI...list goes on) and I constantly beat myself up that I'm not doing enough. I'm bookmarking your blog so I can follow your updates - best of luck on your IVF cycle!

  2. Thanks so much for the comment and for following me! I wish you luck as well!

  3. Reading your blog gives me hope. Best of luck to you =)
