A monthly thread to talk about all of our various journeys through the difficult, trying, and often heartbreaking world of infertility. This thread is a place to chat, vent, get support, cheer each other on, and hopefully occasionally laugh!
Please let me know if there are any changes/updates to make.

Hope4Light (31) DH 33. TTC #2. Trying Since: March 2011 (after PPAF came back) with severe MFI. Plan for this Cycle: Met with RE1 last week, meet with RE2 next week. Then hopefully move forward with cycle testing and SA (all of our tests are from back in 2007/2008 when were were dealing with primary IF), and then onto IVF with ICSI.
