I am a 38 year old woman, married for almost 6 years. I have a 12 year old step-daughter who keep my hands full. We have been trying to have a baby for about 5 years and I have never been pregnant….”trying means”: off the pill for five years, many visits to the OB/RE office, 2 failed IUIs, discovering he has male factor problems, discovering I have a Luteal Phase Defect, charting BBT for last 19 months. I have recently started acupuncture and had a “water ultrasound” concluding that things still look okay on my end. My HSG was also clear. My husband has a job that takes him out of town quite a bit, so I am running the show. We got the latest results on the sperm situation (5th sperm analysis) and despite 4 months of “magic pills” from the endocrinologist, there has been no change. We tried IVF in October and it didn’t work. We have started stimming for IVF#2, egg retrieval predicted the week of March 2. This is harder than I ever thought it would be!

    My name’s Jodi Panayotov, the author of ‘In Vitro Fertility Goddess’. My book has been selling very well in bookshops here in Australia and internationally, particularly to the US, from my website http://invitrofertilitygoddess.com/

    I’ve just stumbled upon your blog and think it’s really poignant.

    I’m thinking of starting a section on my site http://invitrofertilitygoddess.com/ featuring some the best infertility blogs around the world so that my readers and members can branch out and benefit from your insights too.

    I was wondering if you would like to be included.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
