Happy ICLW!

Hi if you're visiting from ICLW!

If you want to click on Timelines you can learn more about our IF journey, but just a brief run down:

After thinking for a year we would need IVF, we discovered that the initial test results were wrong. Our doc is happy for us to try IUI for a couple of cycles before pulling out the big guns. We start that next cycle, which will probably start in a few days. Right now I'm still holding out a small hope that this cycle may have been 'the one' and we won't have to have that IUI. It's not a big hope, but I'll know in the next couple of days.

Oh, and I live in South Korea.

thanks the kind comment on my blog...hope you get to avoid treatment, or at least the big guns, though the people that i've known to pursue IVF in Korea were very very pleased with the experience (but still, let's hope you can get luck before it comes to that!)

I soooo hope you get to go back and tell that grocery lady that it was a YES! <3ed that story by the way! And I'm going to hold out hope with you that this is finally the one! Join that flood of BFPs that spring has brought with it.

I've been really happy with our experiences so far. I'm nervous about the IUI, as the success rate is quite low, but I'm happy to try something less serious first.

Thanks for stopping by my blog (148). Its's nice to have visitors.

One of my current doctoral students is from South Korea. Not that it has much to do with me, just thought I'd mention it.

Don't mind if I follow you.

I'm still giggling at the description of the people at the pharmacy. I have to ask - did she do the 'no' sign with crossing her wrists as well?? Also... I thought I'd read the hangeul wrong, but no. Homestick. Heehee. Love the name.

Thinking of you both. Give Patxi a pat for me.

She actually did a kind of hand sweeping/chopping gesture, as if she was sweeping my worries away...
