Welcome May ICLWers!

Hello everyone visiting from May's ICLW.  I'm The Pussy Parent, mom to two wonderful boy cats who keep me company when my husband travels.  We have been trying to get pregnant for a little less than a year, a fact which makes me feel insecure sometimes in the ALI world.  I'm 32 years old and have anovulatory PCOS and my husband is 31, at least for a few more weeks, with mild MFI (lowish count, low motility).  I suffer from anxiety which has been raring its ugly head due to various fertility medications and just the life of a person dealing with sub-fertility.  Just last week I had a spectacular metldown, which I blogged about in real time.

After waiting and waiting for my follicles to mature on this, my second medicated cycle, I am happy to announce that my second IUI will be tomorrow morning!  I have a few reservations about it which I'll blog about hopefully tomorrow.

As an avid reader, I started this blog in order to compile a list of fiction books about trying to get pregnant and have posted some reviews for far.  I also started reading some fertility autobiographies and made a list of those too.  I have a bunch more reviews to post but I've been busy lately with my own story.

My older sister is pregnant with her second child, a fact which I'm not proud to say distresses me quite a bit.

I may be moving to Boston!  And I'm taking a vacation to Montreal in July to celebrate my second wedding anniversary.

Welcome and I look forward to getting to know you,


  1. Happy ICLW! Best wishes with your IUI tomorrow morning!

    I really hope you move to Boston, of course I am a little biased. :-)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Good luck for your IUI tomorrow... FXd for you and hoping this is the one :)) xoxo

  3. Yes! Good luck today with your IUI!!!! About your older sis being's hard to admit that it is distressing. My younger SIL is pregnant right now and as much as I love her, I feel sucker punched every time I see her cute belly. Can't WAIT for an update!

  4. Good luck with your IUI today!!

  5. Oooh ... an IUI! Wishing you all the best!

  6. OMG. I'm wishing you soooo much luck for this IUI. We did our 3rd IUI this morning, we could be BFP buddies... (((hugs)))
