Welcome back, old friends and make yourself at home, new friends. This is always such a great week, but this one will be a little different since we're on vacation until Saturday.

For all you newcomers, I'm Rochelle and I really hope you'll stick around (at least to see how the rest of this cycle goes!) I'm 23 and I'm married to Matt, who's 24. We've been married since May 2007 and have been hoping for a baby almost that entire time. I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks in September of 2008 and haven't managed to get pregnant again since then. We finally got some preliminary testing done and so far, we're both considered "normal." I am currently in nursing school and I'll graduate in May 2012 so that has put some timing issues into making a baby. When I graduate, I plan on jumping straight into a master's program to become a nurse midwife so there's really not a time in the foreseeable future that I won't be in school.  We did decide to take the Clomid my doctor offered to us this month in the hopes that we'll get a Christmas baby and that's where we're at right now. I just took the last pill last night so now it's just time to wait for a positive opk.  Don't you want to stick around and see what happens? If we have to make a baby in a state park on the long drive back to Arkansas? If the Clomid

As for the moment, we're still having a blast in North Carolina despite waking up like achy old people from the pallet mattress. I'll be sure to write a more detailed "what we been doin'" post later this day or this week.

Good luck with the clomid this cycle! Hoping that +opk shows up soon :)

Happy ICWL!

True story from my doctor-sister: She had a patient come in and complain that Clomid wasn't working because she wasn't pregnant. Yeah, but she also wasn't having sex...

So make sure to do that too! ;)

Hi Rochelle,
It's my first time visiting your blog, through ICLW, and I just wanted to wish you luck with your cycle. You have had a long journey already, but you seem to be very positive, which is great. I hope you manage to get some sleep.

P.S. There's still time to register for the free Fertility Focus Telesummit which starts today and runs all week. Go to to register. I'm speaking on creating effective support networks while trying to conceive, but there are also talks by 11 other fertility experts.

Hello there and thank you so much for your comment! I, too, am glad my ute has done some spring cleaning!!

I love that you may have to get it on in a State Park. It feels so high school, doesn't it? Or maybe that's just my weird high school memory. Good luck! i can't wait to see what happens!
