Hello Again

Hello Again

It’s been a long time since I last posted on our blog. All of you reading this are a part of our journey for different reasons. You may be part of our family, a friend, we may have connected through infertility, adoption, or ivf, we may have connected because we have twin loss in common, we may have connected because you also had a baby in the NICU, you may have become part of our family during our NICU stay,…

A New Path

A New Path

Our adventure to start our family has not been a predictable one. I’d always thought we’d have difficulty getting pregnant and that we would need medical help. When our third iui was unsuccessful last year we were ready to move on. We needed to do something new and adoption felt like the right option for us. We spent months saving and researching adoption. We chose an adoption agency in Kansas, completed our home study, and became a waiting family in…

Looking Back on 26

Looking Back on 26

Well a few days ago I turned 27. Hard to believe that’s even possible. There are many days I look at my life and think I couldn’t possibly be this old- I have a house, a car, a full time teaching job, and I’m married- wow! But I love my life. When I think about this last year I think about everything that’s changed, how much I’ve grown, and what I’ve learned. Almost two years ago we started our adventure…

The End Is Just The Beginning

Third Time’s the Charm, Or So We Hope

Third Time’s the Charm, Or So We Hope

Well my monitoring appointment was moved to this morning. Guess they decided an appointment on the 4th of July was a little crazy (really they decided I didn’t need to come back quite so soon when they looked at my previous cycles). So I went back today and I had one good sized follicle on the right side. We trigger tonight and IUI #3 is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday. After the IUI we begin the long two week wait to…

Here We Go Again

Here We Go Again

Well we are continuing our adventure and are hopefully on our way to IUI #3. I started meds and shots Saturday. They changed up my shots just a little so it’s hard to predict the timeline for this cycle. Because I have PCOS, they are really cautious to not up the shot dosage too much and end up with too many follicles. The plan for now is to follow the med schedule and go back on the 4th for another…
