Clomid Check, Check

Passed my clomid check with flying colors. So we're on to Try #6 again. Follicle scan next Tuesday and I start my 100mg of clomid tomorrow. While I was getting everything in order today I realized that because of these past few months of forced breaks and annovulatory cycles we haven't even gotten a chance to use our new donor yet. Hopefully, this time we can give it a go.

It's hard to believe that we are still on Try #6, we've been on Try #6 since March. We've now hit 1 year of TTC with nothing but tears and heartache to show for it. It's amazing to read back how bright eyed and excited we were 12 months ago and how much more hardened we've come to this whole experience. It sometimes feels more like a second job where I'm only being given night shifts and working minimum wage. I just have to keep hoping that this past year has been for something. I can honestly say that doing this has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I hope it's over soon.

It's a GIRL!!

We'd like to introduce you all to the latest addition to our family. This is Fern.

She was found in a box with a rock on it in a dumpster behind my work last week (it's hard to believe there are people in the world who would do that). Poor little thing was only 4 weeks old and itty bitty. She's now up to 1 pound!!

Campbell is in love, he plays and sleeps with her. Olive is slowly warming up to her, cautiously sniffing her and even napping with her today. Ivy on the other hand is not really excited about having a new sister, but with everything it always takes longer for Ivy to adapt to change.

Fern has been a great addition to our family and has definitely added some excitement to our days (and interrupted sleep at night).
