I'm Back and Tan!

I’m back from a fabulous break from real life.  Three weeks in Europe was a dream.  It cost a fortune, it was worth it.  Hopefully I still have a few followers lingering out there who haven’t forgotten me.  I promise to spend the next few days catching up on all your blogs and commenting!

The trip was INCREDIBLE!  We saw and did so much I don’t even know where to start.  I’ll try not to go on and on about our trip since this is an infertility blog but I’ll have to warn you tomorrow’s post will be all about Europe.

We were on US soil less than an hour before we jumped back on the infertility train.  We stopped at the hospital to get blood drawn for the anti-mullarian assay before even going home.  The results should be back in about a week and then we’ll know what dosages of follistim to use for our next cycle which will start in about 3 weeks.  I’ll write a post soon on protocols but I have to admit I’m pretty frustrated on that front right now and I’m not ready for anything to bring me off my post Europe high!

On an interesting note, Blue and I started seriously considering adopting from Poland while we were gone.  We looked at Polish adoption blogs together and decided that even if we get pregnant on our own we’ll probably try and adopt from there later.  Blue’s grandpa was Polish and grew up in a Polish orphanage in New Jersey so if we go the international adoption route we’ll definitely focus on Poland.


  1. Yeah you're back :)

    So happy you guys had a great time.

    Can't wait to hear about your next cycle.

    I am so excited you two talked about adoption. So sweet. My honey and I are going to a foster/adopt orientation next Thursday :)

    Can't wait to catch up
