Welcome ICLW'ers!

Wow, this is my first time doing this and already I'm off to a slow start since I'm just now posting this... eeek! Sorry :(

Welcome! Just a quick blurb about me, I'm Alex, I'm 28 years old and have Stage 4 Endometriosis/PCOS/Infertility. This is my blog about my pains, both physical and mental/emotional as I try to live life to its fullest in the midst of chronic pain... not to mention the inability to reproduce! Grrr....

Most recently, I've had a Laparoscopic surgery to deal with cysts/adhesions/fibroids, etc. DH and I have tried for over 3 years (unsuccessfully) to have children and right now we are on a much deserved BREAK from it all due to many reasons... mostly health related but also because we just can't afford IVF right now.

Hmm... I guess thats it! I'm at work, so I appologize for the shortness of this post... just wanted to get something out there though for all you fellow ICLW'ers! Happy posting!!! :)

I know what you mean, we can't seem to swallow that $15,000 IVF bill at this time either.

I guess I'm just praying for a miracle though. Good luck.

Hey, thanks for commenting on my blog! We are going through a lot of the same things right now--in face, I saw your post op belly button pictures right as I was in the midst of it too. I hope that you are continuing quickly on the road to recovery. I know what you mean about the cost of IVF. We're beyond trimming the fat right now trying to stow away every cent that we can. Along with Kischa, praying for a miracle.

Hi there!
I just found out last week after a laparoscopy to unblock my tubes, that I have stage IV endo. I didn't even know what that meant! I've been doing lots of reading online this week and I still don't know what it means for my chances conceiving. My doc wants to put me on 6 mts of Lu.pron...did you do that? I've read some scary stuff...
I hope you don't mind if I peek at your blog!!! It sure is cute! :)

Welcome to ICLW!!! Thanks for the intro.

I totally feel you on the medical bills. At least it coincides with taking a mental break.

I hope that you are able to move along with things soon.

Take care!
