The next steps for us to become pregnant will most likely happen around June. There are a lot of little details like meeting with the finance people, blood draws & tests that need to be ran. I have to go on birth control pills for 3 weeks/3 months prior to being given the follicle (egg) stimulating hormones they have me on to harvest multiple eggs. So, June is when we will start on some of those projects to hopefully have a (successful) treatment in August. That would be cool to have a baby by next May. It feels like FOREVER away but, well worth the wait.
Nursing school has really helped distract me from the agonizing patients I have had to develop to cope with our long baby journey.
I have also decided to do Weight Watchers and exercise so that I can be healthier in general. Especially since carrying a child is hard enough, without nursing school or the possibility of twins. (I don't even want to think about the weight gain on that one!)
:o) I am greatly anticipating our IVF treatments because those are the treatments that should work for us. I am grateful / thankful to God that we at least have a good chance to conceive, even if it is not how we were hoping. This journey has certainly been challenging yet, there is still hope. I am very thankful for that! :o)

Well, no such luck. I am really bummed that the IUI treatments did not work. It would have made things much simpler! I think nursing school has provided an adequate distraction. I am looking forward to doing our IVF treatments but it will take a few months before we get started, we have a lot of saving and fundraising to do. :o) Wish us luck.
