IVF is something that we had talked about for many years. I felt kind of strange about the whole thing. Pregnancy is supposed to be natural, it should just happen. But when things weren't "just happening", I started to change my mind. I always thought I would get pregnant on a whim. Knowing that I had PCOS, I knew it would be hard to get pregnant.

Here I am, starting this blog on our 12th wedding anniversary. I'm 34 years old. We didn't seek out IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) until last year. I'd like to share my experiences with IVF and FETs (Frozen Embryo Transfer).
