After a month long hiatus I have decided it is time to come back! I don’t really have an excuse for my lack of posts other than life. Life has been busy; we attended two weddings in the last month in addition to a bridal shower and busy work weeks. IVF and babies have remained on the forefront of my mind but with treatments at a standstill I haven’t had much to talk about from day to day.
I can’t believe we have reached a full year “trying” with assistance. It was mid-August last year that I took my first round of Clomid with stars in my eyes and all the hope in the world. I would not have imagined that a year from then I would be in a holding pattern, waiting for my first (and hopefully only) round of IVF.
We are still waiting until December to start BC. It is our hope that my first appointment will come within the first few days of January and then we will be off on the IVF train. Why the wait? Our insurance only covers $5,000 of infertility treatment in a year and we have used all of our money for 2014. With the coverage we want to be sure we use it for everything it is worth. No, being practical isn’t my favorite decision but it is the smarter one. So far the months have flown and with more weddings and holidays I have no doubt December/January will be here before we know it.
For those who have just gone through your first rounds of IVF; thank you for recapping them with so much detail. I have many questions and through your posts (which I have been reading) you are helping to clear up so many of those.
So here we are September. We are 3 months out and gearing up for my favorite season… FALL! The air turned a cool crisp over the past week and I can’t explain my excitement for sweaters, boots, pumpkin flavored everything oh and don’t worry I have already stocked up on my Bath and Body Works fall candles and wall flowers (enough to last me a year). For the first time in a while I am feeling (halfway) content and happy.
Too fitting not to share:
