Hi! I'm Slackie. The Professor and I have been enjoying our glamorous, misspent youths together for nearly 20 years now, and OH what fun it's been! Now, here we are at 40 and TTC since January 2009.

After seven IUIs, my original diagnosis of Luteal Phase Deficiency was changed to Unexplained Infertility. After three IVF cycles that were all cancelled before retrieval for failure to respond, my ovaries have been cut from the team. New diagnosis, Diminished Ovarian Reserve. We are currently pursuing our "last-chance" cycle using Donor Egg IVF with an anonymous donor.

This blog is a place where I can be open and honest about all of this.
