December ICLW

I know I'm technically a day early with this post, but I decided I'd go ahead and get it posted so it would be ready first thing in the morning.

Welcome to all ICLWers! My name is Lynn, I'm 32 and married to a great guy (referred to on here as The Hubs). We've been TTCing for 7 years, but so far nada. I suffer from PCOS, lost my right tube to an enormous ovarian cyst 4 years ago and, in the last year, have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, diabetes, hypothyroidism and complex hyperpl.asia. I have recently (last week) been given the all clear on the hyperpl.asia front and, so, The Hubs and I will hopefully be officially starting fertility treatment in January (we've been seeing our RE for 8 months and, prior to our referral, took 4 rounds of Cl.omid and a round of Fema.ra with my OB/GYN).

On a positive note, it seems The Hubs is in stupendous condition and should have no problems fathering a child, assuming my body decides to work semi-correctly =D Also in the column of good news, The Hubs finally did it! He told his parents this past weekend that we are going to be undergoing fertility treatment! This may not sound like such a huge deal to you, however, in the seven years we've been trying, his family have never been aware. Therefore, I'm pretty darn excited about his accomplishment.

A bit about me? I love to read, crafty projects (particularly crocheting and scrapbooking), Glee, singing, dancing and spending time with The Hubs and our dogs. I'm currently in school working on my bachelor's degree in Social Sciences with a concentration in education - I'm hoping to be a teacher in a couple of years. I'm about half-way through my degree and I currently have a 3.94 GPA. I'm very proud of this, if you couldn't tell ;D

I truly adore my blogging buddies and I'm interested in meeting new friends, so please be sure to leave me a comment! Also, I'm starting to plan my reading list for next year, so if you have a suggestions of great books (I love thrillers, fantasy and drama, such as Jodi Picoult, Nicholas Sparks and Barbara Delinsky, but I'm always open to new books!), please feel free to leave them in the comments section! TTFN!

Hi! Here from ICLW, I also suffer from PCOS. It is great that you are seeking treatment, we held off for longer than I would have liked, but once we got past the oral drugs (Clomid, Femara) things started to work correctly...I wish you the best of luck!

Congrats on that fantastic GPA!

Your sweet comment really made my day today. Thank your husband for me (and thank you, too!).

My top pick for a book? Mel's "Life from Scratch!" I hope you'll join the book tour I'm hosting. And spread the word, you bookster, you.

Oo! Your GPA is FAB! If i were you i'd frame my transcript! lol Good luck with your treatments. We just told our families as well...it was scary for me. (didn't want people to know i was broken) Sounds silly now in retrospect.

First time here from ICLW week.
Love the blog template/design~ so festive!
I have also been Dx w/PCOS on TTC #1, now TTC #2 (new R/E) says, "maybe or maybe not"? And I have been Dx this past year w/Hyperthyroidism.
So many Dx's!
Looking forward to following your journey.

This is my first time participating in the ICLW and I am loving all the great new blogs I'm discovering. I totally understand how great it is that your husband finally told your parents. It's (only) been 3 and a half years here but my in-laws still don't know and my MIL makes a lot of hurtful/uncomfortable comments that I don't think she'd make if she only knew. Nice to "meet" you and I am so looking forward to the secret pal fun!!
