Welcome :) ICLW

If you are stopping by from ICLW we welcome you :) 
I am Alexis married to my adorable husband Scott.. 
I am an executive assistant for my family's bowling centers and
I just recently opened an online boutique with my mother
selling headbands for babies to adults and more! Our link is above :)
Scott is a jack of all trades, graphic designer, embroider, lead art designer and 
free lance business owner where he designs websites. 
We live in a house on the hill that we totally renovated when we moved in 
almost 4 years ago. We have an adorable pup named Waffles :) 
Scott and I have been ttc for 3 years come October. 
We have suffered 3 miscarriages. 
Our third loss was in April were we found at a 12weeks1day 
that our baby had stopped growing around 9 weeks. 
We were devastated but with the love and support from 
our family, friends, and this community we made it through to smile again. 
 We decided it was time to see a RE who we absolutely love 
We waited for 3 cycles before we started treatment. 
On September 8th we started 100mg of clomid
September 12th we had an HSG scan with clear results 
on September 17th we had our first follicle scan
where we could only find my right ovary with one decent sized follicle 
measuring 14mm my lining was good at a 10.1 
Dr. B decided we should come back on the 19th to recheck growth
The day of the 19th we found the right ovary again with 
the same 14mm follicle but my lining was thicker at an 11 
with a lot of searching we finally found my left ovary 
which held the golden follicle measuring 26mm!! 
we triggered that night and are now part of the waiting game
I have a progesterone drawl on the 28th 
and a beta drawl on October 5th! 
 Thank you for stopping by! 
We hope you would love to stick around and follow us on 
Our Journey Through Love, Life & Adventures!
