The large box of meds arrived today. Right on top are needles. I guess it's time to face that fear! But...I'm going to put it in the basement and not think about it until I have to. This box is a little intimidating!
We have been trying to conceive (TTC) for over 2 years now and finally made the decision to proceed with in vitro fertilization (IVF) in December after many rounds of Clomid and 4 IUIs, everything super fantastically unsuccessful. After securing financing, we had to wait for the old period to start. Which it did, during our beach vacation, of course. Anyway, I'm on birth control now to prime my ovaries and we will start the process soon. Little did I know that IVF is about a 4 month process from start of birth control to implantation. We are excited that we finally are moving forward with a process that has a 75% chance of success. Also, we are still a little dumbfounded that we're here in the first place.
Me and Him
We have been trying to conceive (TTC) since July 2012, and it's been a long road. After 4 unsuccessful IUIs (artificial inseminations) and countless heartache, we have decided to move forward with in vitro fertilization (IVF). Even though it's insanely expensive, it has the highest chance for success (75%) and it's our best hope. One of the most frustrating things about our infertility is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with either of us (that they can test). Oftentimes IVF also is diagnostic, so along with hoping for a happy, healthy baby, we are hoping for some answers. This is our journey, and we appreciate any prayers along they way.
