Welcome IComLeavWe'ers!

It's another IComLeavWe. This is my second time participating, and to be honest my heart wasn't really into it and I did a poor job.

Not this time! Now we have a plan, my surgery was done, and all I have to do is wait for AF to arrive. I really feel like a baby is within arms reach.

I ordered 200 frozen wheatgrass cubes from a local naturopath today. Final total = $202. I had every intention of growing and juicing it myself but it's just not going to happen. I am really hoping that this will help lower my FSH.

I also have been taking DHEA, a steroid. Fingers crossed that (a) it lowers my FSH and (b) I don't lose all my hair and get acne! Let me tell you, my libido is UP. Really good thing, because my husband is not complaining. That could change, of course if I turn into a balding, acne prone, deep voiced, hairy chinned wife.

The other downside is that I won't be able to compete in the Olympics. Another hope dashed!

Fingers crossed that they will do bloodwork and ultrasound on my Day 3 so I can see if my FSH has indeed gone down. I don't expect it to, but I'm really hoping to see a difference.


  1. Wow! Good luck with the wheatgrass cubes. I'm curious to see how that works for you.

    All the best!


  2. I don't think any man would complain about getting some no matter what their wife looked like!!

    Happy ICLW!!

  3. Good luck with the wheatgrass! I'm curious to hear your results.
    Endo is a real bitch, I hate her. I'm at the point where my RE doesn't want to do any more laps for fear of causing more scar tissue, but worrying that the endo has totally twisted my insides.
    I hope your IVF goes smoothly!

  4. HI. I'm Tracey from ICLW #118
    You made me laugh with the DHEA visual. And if the synchronized swim team has to make due without you, then so be it.
    Good luck. Love the wheatgrass idea.
    I have 2 ivf babies and blog for my RE now. if you or anyone you know is interested in a free fun contest with a grand prize of a free micro ivf cycle, please stop by before sunday to enter. good luck!

  5. Visiting from ICLW. Good luck with the wheat grass. I gave up on mine because I bought some superfood mix and it made me gag hard core. I will be curious to see how it goes.

    I also started following you and am looking forward to reading more. Best of luck to you!

  6. Happy ICLW!

    Wishing you the best of luck with TTC. It sounds like you are due a BFP very soon. xx

  7. Oh someone must be not complaining for that raised libido.

    I hope your FSH will get lowered.
