We haven't updated on out TTC plans lately, so here is the long awaited information. February marks three years since we started this heart breaking TTC journey. Three years is a long time. A lot of months of heart break, many months of waiting. Different meds, different protocols, etc. It is a time of extreme highs and lows, and it really takes its toll on you.
In a few weeks we will try again - mid February ish. I am about halfway through my current cycle. So, when af comes to visit again, I will go for cycle day 2 blood work and ultrasound. Then comes the daily shot of Follistim and blood work and ultrasound appointments. My guess is that we will inseminate the beginning of March. We have decided that we will try three more times and that will probably be it.
So, last night we were talking about what our ultimate goal was. As much as we want a baby, really our ultimate goal is to have a family. There is only so much we can control in the TTC process. We can take the meds, monitor my ovaries, etc, but when it comes down to it, we can't MAKE the sperm and egg meet and implant. So, last night we sent for information about becoming Foster Parents. There are so many kids out there who need a loving and stable home and we can provide that for them.
I have a renewed excitement at this new way that we may begin our family. We'll keep you posted.
