Welcome ICLWers!

Welcome ICLWers!  This is my first time participating and I’m excited to find new blogs to follow! 
As the title of my blog suggests, I am just another endo girl trying to make a baby in the arctic.  I blog about the rollercoaster called infertility, sometimes I get down in the dumps but I try hard to get back up as quick as possible.
Here is a quick recap of the last 2 years…
Dropped the BC, laughed about baby names, cried every time AF showed, had endo surgery, Dx with stage 3 endo, cried some more, tried clomid, went gluten and dairy free, tried acupuncture, tried IVF, found out my ovaries are old.
The old ovaries thing is new.  I found out last Tuesday that I wasn’t responding to IVF meds very well.  Tuesday was a very bad day but I’ve been able to find some light in the darkness.  Blue, my fabulous hubby, and I are going to Europe for three weeks starting next week and I plan to eat as much pasta, cheese and wine as I can get my hands on. 
I hope you’ll follow me on this crazy ride and I hope I make you laugh along the way.

Im sorry your body did not respond to the body did not respond well to Gonal F ie FSH drugs then my FS has given me instructions for every 3 day pregnyl shot to accelerate ovaries a bit more and I got a reading over 800 yesterday...not too sure if thats something you can try
