Success after IF

GTKY Monday - about your household?

I'm relatively new to SAIF, and I'd love to get to know all of you better!  Perhaps we can do a GTKY Monday thread each week?

How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?

How many furbabies?

Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  

Do you have family nearby?

Re: GTKY Monday - about your household?

  • How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?
    Just the 3 of us, me, MH and E (6 months tomorrow!!!)

    How many furbabies?
    2 dogs, 2 cats

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  
    We live in the Houston area.  MH grew up in this area, I moved here after college, and have now been here about 10 years.

    Do you have family nearby?
    Nope.  :(

    ETA: I think a weekly GTKY would be fun!

  • I'll start...

    How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs? Just DH, me, and M, who is 2.5 months old now.

    How many furbabies? None, unless you count dust bunnies!

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  We are just a few miles west of Boston.  We've been here for 5 years (though both DH & I have spent many years in Boston area when we were much younger)

    Do you have family nearby?  SIL (DH's sister) lives 20 minutes away.  My parents are in TX, my brother lives in Hong Kong, and my ILs are 3 hours away by car.

     How many furbabies?One pooch. She is my avatar and the absolute light in my IF darkness. She is spoiled and still gets two walks a day, even with the new baby.  Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  We live in a house in Arizona. We have been in this house 4.5 years.  Do you have family nearby? Yes, my parents are 15min away and one of my brothers is about 20min away.

  • Perhaps we can do a GTKY Monday thread each week?  Sounds good!  I have been a long time lurker, occasional poster, and never really left with the mass exodus last year!

    How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs? 5 - DS is almost 4 (crazy!), DD#1 is 2.5, and DD#2 is 8 weeks

    How many furbabies? 0

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  South of Boston.  We moved almost 2 years ago to my hometown to be near my family.  We were in the city until then.

    Do you have family nearby? Yup - my parents are about 3 miles away, and my sister and her family are about 3 miles away in the opposite direction.  A huge help with 3 kids so far!!

  • How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?

    We are a family of six.  Shannon is 6, Quinn is about to turn 4, Sully is 1.5 and Maren is almost three months.

    How many furbabies?

    We have one cat and a goldfish (who isn't furry at all)

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  

    We live in Milwaukee and I've always lived here.  I actually grew up only two blocks away from where we live now.

    Do you have family nearby? 

    Thankfully, yes.  My parents and two sisters live in the area.  My in-laws live in Michigan.


    Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12

    Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then just pure, crazy luck.  Expecting our fifth in May as the result of a FET.

    This Cluttered Life

  • How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?

    4-  Me, DH and our 12 week old twin boys

    How many furbabies?

    1- our 7 year old pekingese who is ridiculously spoiled by DH.  He also still gets two walks a day, even with the babies here.

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there? 

    CT, I have lived here my whole life except for going to college in Delaware. 

    Do you have family nearby?

    My parents and MIL are 45 minutes away, but my parents are moving and will be about 5 minutes from us which will be a huge help.  My brother and future SIL live about 15 minutes away.


  • How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?
    3 humans. 1 LO. He will be 6 months tomorrow.
    How many furbabies?
    1 cat, 20 years old. She is starting to show her age and it makes me sad.
    Where do you live and how long have you been living there? nbsp;
    I live in Seattle on the shore of lake union. I moved to Seattle for grad school in 2002.

    Do you have family nearby?
    No, sadly. Closest family is a sister in California. My parents are a long plane ride away, same with DHs.

    IVF Oct '11 brought us the little man of our dreams on July 29, 2012!

  • How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?  Just the 3 of us - me, DH and DS, who is 5 months.

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  Just moved to our new house in October in CT.   We used to live a town over.   I've been in CT for almost 13 years.

  •  I'm new to SAIF too and would love weekly GTKY posts!

    How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs? Just me, DH, and DD (Ellie) who just turned 19 months old...hoping to add another soon!

    How many furbabies? none yet!

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  We live just south of Washington, DC. I can't believe it, but DH and I have lived in this town almost our whole lives. We went away to college (at separate schools) and met over winter break at home one year and hit it off. The only saving grace to us still being in the same town is that there has been so much development in the area it's really not the same place it was when we were growing up.

    Do you have family nearby? Yes! Both my parents and DH's parents are about 10 minutes away from us in either direction. Sounds stifling but they are great at keeping their distance but also very willing to come over at any time for any reason to help, babysit, or just visit and play. They're great :)

  • How many people are in your household, and how old are your LOs?

     there are 5 of us. i have twin boys who are 2 years and 10 months old, and my baby girl who is 5 weeks.

    How many furbabies?

    2 cats 

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  

    i live in a suburb of philadelphia. i was born here (same hospital where i gave birth to all 3 of my kids!), lived here til i was 9, then moved to texas. i came back for my senior year of HS, then away for college and 2 years after. i have been living here since 2004, when i started grad school. 

    Do you have family nearby? 

    my parents live 1 mile away, and my aunt and uncle are about 3 miles away.  that's part of why we live here- we have a lot of help! my grandparents live at an old folks' home about 2 miles away, but they are not particularly helpful (87 & 88 and have dementia), but we get to see them and the boys know who their great-grandparents are. we are really close to my family.

    TTC #1 since 10/08
    After 4 failed IUIs, IVF#1 was a success!

    Was it, by chance, Houston IVF? That is where I went.  I liked my doctor okay (Hickman), but I rarely go to actually see him and the staff and my experience otherwise was terrible.  The nurses did pretty much everything and they were incompetent.  I once expressed concern that my IUI was timed too long after I O'd and a nurse told me, "The egg lives 3-4 days after you O."  Any moron knows that isn't true.

  • Ugh is it really only Monday?! This thread will cheer up a challenging day of toddler tantrums :)

    My household is made up of me, DH, and DD. DD is 15 months old.

    One furbaby, Layla. She's a lab/hound mix who we rescued 3.5 yrs ago.

    We live in the Appalachian mountains in Virginia. We've lived here about 3 yrs, but I grew up here and moved away for college, then to live in DC for a while.

    Yes. My mom and brother live 15 min away, thank goodness! Both of them are lots of help. 

    DX: Severe MFI

    How many furbabies? One cat, Mortimer, who is 14

    Where do you live and how long have you been living there?  I live in Portland, if you have ever seen Portlandia, that is pretty much my neighborhood. I am from here, DH moved here after college for work. We just moved into a new-to-us house last spring.

    Do you have family nearby? Most of my family is nearby, which has its benefits and disadvantages. :)

    Yes it was. My RE was fine, but like you the office and nursing staff were insanely awful. And the cost was outrageous. I spent more in 6 months just getting a diagnosis than I did at FSH in 2 years of actual treatments.
