Okay, this ICLW thing... It seems I didn't quite understand what I was getting myself into...

Reading new blogs and meeting new people: check!
Listening to their stories: check!
Leaving a comment: check!

Okay, I'm not up to full speed yet, it being weekend and carnival and all. But I'm working on it. I read the "rulebook", but it seems there's some little things that are not in there yet but have become common courtesy or something. Like leaving "ICLW" somewhere in the comment, so people will know how the hell you've ended up on their blog in the first place. Good point! Without it, I kind of felt like an intruder, but now at least people will know why I dropped in. It's because, well, they've asked for it!

Second little thing I forgot was introducing myself to all the other ICLW'ers. But fortunately Cathy took care of that one, at least partly, by interviewing me for my first English blog post.

And to explain the baby-pictures on this blog: those two miracle-babies are the result of 4 yrs TTC, 6 IUI's, 2 IVF/ICSI attempts and a 5 week NICU stay. The road to motherhood was long, painful, emotional and at times very hard, like it still is for most of you. But the endresult was worth EVERY SINGLE MINUTE!!! I honestly hope your own road will eventually bring you as much joy (and as many nighttime feedings) as mine did!

If you are not satisfied with this introduction, tough luck!

No really, I'm not actually that rude... If you have any more questions, please just ask them!


  1. so happy to see that good things can come of all of this work :)

  2. Not doing ICLW, but "tough luck" made me giggle all the same. :)

  3. ICLW can be a little overwhelming when you first start. I am with you, though, and enjoy reading all the new blogs. Have fun!

    I loved your interview, by the way. Hugs.

  4. Thanks for your comment on my blog! I love reading NICU success stories like yours. :)


  5. Saw your little guys all dressed up like flowers below. What had gotten into you?! That's some serious fodder for blackmail - it! Just tell them it could have been worse...they could have been PINK flowers! ICLW

  6. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. It's nice to meet you. :)
    First of all, your boys are absolutely precious and the flower pics are too cute! Love, love, love them.
    In response to the comment you left on my blog, I feel grateful that all we have to do is attend baby showers in the US. I can't imagine having to visit the new parents and hold their babies. I'd definitely cry if I had to do that. I don't mind meeting and playing with friends' kids, but it has to be on my terms, you know? Luckily, not too many people are pregnant right now in our circle of friends. Just one. My sister-in-law is pregnant too, which is kinda hard. Ah, what's a girl to do in a fertile world?
    BTW - my husband and I visited Amsterdam this past November. What a beautiful city! We just loved it, but want to head back when it's tulip season. :)
