M has started her 21 days of birth control. We are so glad to have this ball finally rolling!
It likely means that she will be on it for 21 days, take a few days off and then start her injection routines. Eek!

I am so happy we are moving forward. One downside is that it has put a real kink in our summer vacation plans. We basically feel that we need to be here as once birth control ends we need to be able to be at the clinic any day they ask. It seems that we will need to travel for bloodwork and arrive before 8am (early mornings). We were planning on heading out of the country to visit M’s parents but we are realizing we cannot do that anymore.

We decided to let them in on our situation so they can understand why we are unable to come out this summer. Hopefully they will feel compelled to visit us instead.

I do find it a bit strange that we have tried to get M pregnant for over a year but now she is on a medication that essentially blocks her from getting pregnant. Oh well…..I guess I just need to respect the process and let go of all my concerns and questions and watch it all happen.

My hair is getting greyer at an unacceptably quick rate…

Oh and to top it all off I do not have a job for next year yet. No stress though. Who needs money when you have a new mortgage and giant fertility bills.

However I need to say that with all our struggles we are very fortunate as we still have hope and options available.

On another note one of the bloggers I follow has been devastating diagnosed with cancer and has to go through all this shit while enjoying her 5 month old baby. I consider myself a very intuitive person and I know that she is going to be okay. My heart hurts for her and her family and I can’t stop thinking about them. I am thankful for communities like this that people in unique situations can turn to for support. I hope she knows how much we all care for her.

    Glad to hear you guys are moving forward on the TTC front. Jen and I were so lucky that we both got pregnant relatively easily. I’m sure it’s very stressful for you and M to have to keep trying, but I have faith that you’ll be adding that much-wanted and loved little one to your family soon.

    I SO hear you on the job/money front. But you know, you make things work. Sprout’s arrival could have come under better circumstances, but I wouldn’t change our timing with having her at all. We’ll figure the other stuff out.

    Also YES in regards to “Lex”‘s story. It’s heartwarming to see her receiving so much support, but still, the situation is devastating.

    Thank you! I have faith it will all work out. I never in a million years thought we would have so much difficulty conceiving.

    I am trying to comment on all your posts but it won’t let me!

    I know what you mean about TTC interfering with plans. As I come to terms with this taking longer than I had anticipated I have started to realize how this may affect our ability to plan trips because my cycles are somewhat irregular. All plans will have to be somewhat spontaneous I suppose, and inexpensive. But on the other hand, if the price to pay for a vacation and some respite from the insanity is taking a month off, it’s probably worth it.
