Welcome ICLW!

Hi!  thanks for stopping by my blog...:)  There is info about our journey in my side bar over there

<----------------- you'll have to scroll down a bit though...:)

I am Erica, and I have suffered through infertility for 11+ years.  I was misdiagnosed for many of those years and when I finally got diagnosed with PCOS in January of 2010, I was happy to have that diagnosis, even if it wasn't ideal.  It is hard for me to go back and think about all those lost years, but I know now that things happen for a reason.  

I do have a daughter, she is 5, she was conceived naturally after I had lost 30lbs (the docs at the time were clueless as to how I got pregnant).  I have never been overweight, but I guess my body needs a little less weight on it to work correctly. 

This Christmas is a bit bittersweet for me.  I did end up getting pregnant last year, but we lost that little one last September.  It is hard to imagine that this would have been baby #2's first Christmas. 

This infertility mess has been a long tough road for the both of us (and my daughter), it is almost impossible to explain to those that have never experienced infertility and loss, but we finally found a treatment that worked and we are now 21 weeks pregnant with our 2nd PCOS miracle baby.
I wish everyone the best of luck and please stick with it, I gave up so many times in the last 11 years, but last year I vowed to stick with it and not give up.
