getting to know you - hello ICLW ers!

Hi everyone! I know I am a few days late, but Welcome to IComLeavWe! If this is your first time, Welcome. If you you have done it before, Welcome back! If you are new to my blog you can read about me here and read about my IF journey here.  I am currently on CD2 of IUI #3 with clomid and ovidrel.

For this ICLW I decided to do a little thing I was tagged in called Getting to Know You. Here are the rules.

Getting to Know You
1 – Post the rules
2 - Answer the 11 questions from the person who tagged you.
3 – Create 11 new questions for the people you tag.
4 – Tag people and link them to your post.
5 – Let them know that you tagged them.
Here are my responses to futuresoccermom's questions @ Pregnancy 101

1. What is a random, goofy hidden talent that you have?
Wow, hard first question. Well it is definitely not a talent and probably lots of people can do this, but it's the only random, goofy thing I could think of. I have a pretty substantial Elvis lip curl.

2. Who is your favorite actor/actress, and what movies or shows did you love them in?
 I think if I have to name one it would be Meg Ryan. I love so many movies of hers!

3. What is the craziest, most ridiculous dream you’ve ever had?
My dreams are usually pretty serious and more like real life situations. The only kinda crazy one I can remember is being a Ghost Buster and running around the city with them like in the movie.

4. How many times have you been to the hospital for non-IF related things?
 3 times all for fractured bones. Broke my tailbone first.  Slipped on goose poop in the high school field playing soccer. I sat on a donut for 6 months. I still have issues since I really messed up my nerves. Then I fractured my right wrist. I fell and landed on it while I was hiking in the woods. Only had a soft cast on it for a few months. I can feel when a big storm is coming. And last I fractured my left ankle. I stepped off a high curb wrong and landed on the side of my ankle. Had a soft cast on that too for a few months.

5. What countries have you traveled to and which was your favorite?
 I have never been out of the US. My favorite state I visited would have to be Colorado. It is so beautiful there.

6. If you could hire your own nutritionist, fitness trainer, or personal chef, which would you choose and why?
 Probably a personal chef. I love to bake, but I don't cook too well. To have someone cook all my meals would be so awesome! I know they would be healthy and so much better than I could ever do.

7. What is your favorite indoor activity? Outdoor?
Hmmm. I guess for indoor I would say just relaxing and crocheting.  Outdoor, going for a walk on a nice day.

8. If you could explain one thing about IF to someone non-IF to help them understand, what would you tell them?
I always had a hard time explaining things to non-IFers. I found an article Beckie posted a while ago that really explains things better than I could. I gave it to my bestie and she finally got it. Here is a link to her post.

9. Talk about your siblings. How many do you have?
I have one Brother. He is actually my half Brother, but I never thought of him that way. We are 9 years apart. My step father is an asshole so I basically was his second parent. He is mentally and physically disabled. Although he is not classified, he had bits and pieces of autism, downs and other things. He also has a seizure disorder. He is an amazing person. Always happy. Is friends with everyone he meets and loves unconditionally. He has taught me so many things. He is the one person I am most excited to tell when we finally have a baby.

10. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a Veterinarian.  I love animals and was always interested in science.

11. What is your favorite condiment? (You know, ketchup, hot sauce)
Probably Franks Red Hot. I put that shit on everything! I really do!

The people I am going to tag are:
Lora @ Hope Delayed
April @ Where Do We Go From Here?

Here are my questions

1. What was your favorite book when you were a kid?
2. What is your favorite card or board game?
3. What food do you absolutely refuse to eat?
4. Where did you go on your last vacation?
5. Do you have any siblings? Tell me about them.
6. What house hold chore do you hate the most?
7. Cake or Pie?
8. If you could go to any country all expenses paid for 2 weeks where would you go?
9. If you could have any animal as a pet what would it be?
10. If you were a pirate and had to have one, which would you choose, a peg leg or a hook for a hand?
11. If you could have a super power what would you choose?


  1. hi from ICLW!

    You would get along well with my husband, he is OBSESSED with hot sauce!!
    I'm sorry about your most recent BETA - infertility is so heartbreaking.

  2. Franks is the best hot sauce. Also, I have a deep dark fear of breaking my tailbone. That somehow seems like the worst thing to break ever!

  3. I broke my tailbone twice, 'roller skating.' The quotes are because I cannot skate to save my life. My best friend was an awesome skater, even had her own skates, which was practically unheard of in our group, but I've always been too afraid of falling. It's amazing I ever learned to ride a bike.

    My two brothers are half, too, but they've always been just plain brothers to me.

    Thanks for tagging me!! This is just what I need to get me out of my funk and back to blogging.

  4. Hello - it's my first time stopping by - and I just wanted to say hello. I'm sorry for your recent negative beta...that stinks! I hope you and your RE come up with a plan to tweak something so next time it works for you. I'm glad to see you are getting back to the gym. It is a great stress release and helps your body stay strong. Best wishes!

  5. Hey girlie! Thanks for tagging me, I'll definitely start working on my responses.

    The gym is a GREAT outlet! Last summer I joined a gym and it was such a huge part of getting me mentally back in "the game." I felt better physically, mentally and emotionally. And on days that it was especially hard, I would keep pushing myself remembering that I was doing this for baby and it would be worth every bit of it. It was a pretty intense circuit training class so I stopped going heading into IVF #2 but I'm so glad that it was part of my life and helped me get to this point.


It is always exciting finding new comments! I really love knowing you were here!
