Welcome to all the ICLWers that read this post!

I'm Alicia Marie, and this is the first month that I have participated in ICLW.  I love reading new blogs and writing comments, so I'm sure this is right up my alley!

Here's a little about me.  I married my husband, Luke, on September 19, 2009.  We started TTC July of 2010.  I was diagnosed (this past Monday, actually) with PCOS.  Right now I'm waiting to get into the endocrinologist to see if he can fix me (my hormones--or whatever else is wrong with me).  

I originally started this blog because I was never successful at keeping a diary, so I thought an internet diary would be more to my liking.  I was right.  I've grown to LOVE blogging, and I've especially grown to LOVE the amazing ladies (and man) that follow and comment on my blog.  As the title of my blog says, everything I say is directly "from the heart of Alicia Marie".  

As many of you know TTC is a tough journey, especially when doctors give you little hope, but I try to keep things positive.  I've been in a slump this past week, and I apologize if it's a little depressing, but as the title says, it's from my heart!  

I hope to gain new blog friends and read your journey through life!

Have a blessed weekend!
Alicia Marie 


  1. Hey girl! Thanks for swinging over today. You asked about Herbalife so I'm going to give you my email address so we can talk privatly without the world reading it lol. It all depends on you and what your goal is. So write me at
    and I'll figure out what you would need and how much it would be then you and Luke can talk it over and get back with me. Does that sound like a plan?

  2. Hi Alicia! I happened to stumble upon your page and am glad you are doing the ICLW.. me too! I am new to the blog world and hope to meet wonderful, strong individuals who are facing with infertility as I am. I'm looking forward to following you in your journey! :) Here's to positive vibes!

  3. Welcome to ICLW. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Just as a heads up, PCOS is something that can be treated but not fixed. Wishing you the very best of luck and I hope you get your endocrinologist appointment soon.

    ICLW #6

  4. Found your blog through ICLW. Wishing you the best with the testing process and treatment options presented.


  5. Congrats on your graduation!! Such a great achievement!!! Definitely praying for you with the TTC- it's so stressful sometimes and you just have to vent. Keep being you and being positive!

    Sending lots of love!!!


  6. Alicia, thanks for stopping by today!
    PCOS is not the end of the world - especially at your very young age! Stay positive and it will happen, with a little help from your fertility specialist!
    Good luck!

  7. Stopping by for ICLW. I also have PCOS but would recommend you go straight to a reproductive endocrinologist rather than a regular endocrinologist. I made that mistake and was very dissatisfied. A lot of times it takes a while to get in to see a RE. Good luck, I can remember feeling devastated when I was first told I had PCOS. Congrats on your graduation!!

  8. Visiting for ICLW.
    Congratulations on your graduation! That is a big accomplishment. I hope that now that you have an official diagnosis, you can get the treatments you need to help you get pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCO (polycystic ovaries) but I don't have any other the other tell-tale signs of PCOS--so basically they don't know what the heck is going on with me. :)

  9. This is my first month with ICLW too! Like you, I am so glad I found ICLW this past month. I've found a community like no other!
    I'm sorry for your diagnosis of PCOS, but I hope with the diagnosis you're able to work things out and have your bundle of joy sooner than later.

  10. It's nice to "meet" you. As a fellow PCOSer I can relate to how upset and confused you must feel after recently getting diagnosed. I hope you can get into the endocrinologist soon to start getting some answers.
