Welcome ICLW

As a fan of Martha, I would like to offer some tasty refreshments including a mint julep. Sadly those things do not translate well across the Internet. So I will just share a few things about my life and my journey up to now: facebook style.

Sexuality: lesbian (quasi-bi)
Relationship status: happily partnered for 6 years
Region: the south…. it is both awful and wonderful here
Children: Only the furry kind at this point
Efforts to have a child/ children: so many in the past 2 years
Fertility challenges: well, lack of sperm, grainy eggs, and unknown for my partner
IVF’s: 3 failed thanks.
miscarriages: just one
IUI’s: 5 failed for my partner
home inseminations: just 1 failure there
current plans: moving on to donor eggs
pessimistic: some days
angry: occasionally
optimistic: most days
how soon for the donor eggs? hopefully this summer

Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

Sorry this is a meager post. I was up half the night driving a dog to the emergency vet. Barney, the Beagle to the right, had a bit of a kerfuffle with a larger dog. Barney lost. He is fine but sore. He has stitches scattered all over his little body but we are lucky because he had no serious injuries. Now he is happily sleeping on pain meds. Last night, as I was driving to the vet’s office, trying to stay calm, I felt like such a mother. I left the house sans make-up, sans socks, sans underwear and sans bra (which is not an option for me). I just knew I had to get my bloody little guy to the vet ASAP! Apparently, little dogs bleed alot even when nothing is terribly wrong. That’s a $200 lesson but I would do it again to know that my buddy is okay.

    Poor Barney! Tell him no more kerfuffling with big dogs. You were such a good pet mom to put his needs before your own…who needs socks and undergarments when your little guy needs help?!And thanks for the mint julep, don’t mind if I do!

    Your personal stats make me laugh and also make me a little sad at the same time. I hear a lot of hope in there too. Yay. Your pool little guy! Hope he recovers well and I’m glad to hear it isn’t really serious.

    that is my worst fear (well, one of them, i guess not having children is my WORST fear), that a larger dog will get ahold of my little sassy-pants annabel and really hurt her.good luck with the donor eggs, i hope your re’s office comes through soon.iclw
