Welcome to ICWL!

My story is pretty much explained in the timeline on the right, but I guess this might be a good time for a disclaimer. This blog started as a record of our journey through fertility treatment in China, where we've been living for nearly 4 years.

In the time since I started blogging, our story has moved on... from fertility treatment to pregnancy and soon, from China to South Korea. But, while the title of this blog might seem a little inaccurate, it's not. We're still infertile and still struggling with the hangover of the last 3 years of TTC, whilst trying to celebrate and enjoy this much-desired pregnancy.

Thank you for stopping by - if you leave a comment, I'll come and visit your blog and say Hi!


  1. Glad you've kick-started ICLW. I always get confused by the time difference.

  2. Well, I figure it's the 21st here so that's good enough for me!

  3. Great blog, and congrats on your pregnancy! I'm an expat, too (US Foreign Service currently living in Ireland).

    Looking forward to following your journey.

    Visiting from ICLW!

  4. I'm so glad that you're having some success right now and I hope it continues for you! (and I really hope you've had enough injections to last your lifetime :)

    Congratulations!!! Looking forward to watching you grow.

  5. just saying hi and hope you're doing well...and i agree, IF totally leaves you with a hangover. good description :)

    so how far along are you now? 10 weeks?
