Fertility Updates

I'm not saying that y'all care about our journey to create a human being (aka become parents), but this is my blog and by golly, I am finally comfortable sharing every detail about the struggle that I feel it's only necessary to document it. If you want to see previous posts about our struggle, go here.

On Friday, Ross and I went to talk with a new fertility doctor. I already have my go-to doctor (who is amazing), but we wanted to get another doctor's perspective. Long story short and $800 later, we were told things that we already knew: there's nothing wrong with either of our bodies.

So I sorta feel like we're back to square one. Do we start fertility treatments? Do we keep on trying since "nothing is wrong?" What others tests do we need to have done? So many questions.
We have another upcoming appointment scheduled with my regular fertility doctor who I've been seeing since February of last year. Hopefully he will explain to us the cost and process of IUI (Intrauterine Insemination). If all sounds good, we will do that. Since my husband has plenty of "men" and I ovulate "beautifully", I am pretty hopeful for IUI.

The truth of the matter is that I have to put my faith in God. I know for a fact that it's in God's plan that I become a mommy. I need to rest assured in that. But sometimes I allow the enemy to get in my head and doubt myself. I have (and I continually) promised God that we will raise our children in a Christian household - of course the enemy will take that an try to cause doubt. But now that I recognize it, I just have to think positively and rightfully; there's nothing wrong!

On another note, can we please talk about the fact that Jenelle from Teen Mom is preggo with her second child? I mean... does she really think that was a smart move? I should stop talking about this. I am so hateful right now, ha. Well played, MTV... you got me hooked on seeing 16 year olds get knocked up.

And just because Barbara is too funny...

  6. Hang in there. I know it is hard :(
    When you talk to your doctor, ask about his success rates with IUI, especially in "unexplained" situations like yours. Also sk about the cost of the IUI procedure themselves, plus the cost of any medicines you'll be required to take in preparation (like Clomid and a trigger shot), just so you get the whole picture. I hope and pray that one day everything works out wonderfully for you guys and that you are able to feel peach through it all. Hugs girl :)

  10. It's just not the right timing yet! Especially if both are you are perfectly healthy enough to have kids.
    Keep your head up girl...this is hard to remember and fully be okay with, but God's plans are better than our plans. He has a reason for all of this, and when you finally do get pregnant, you'll know why He waiting to bless you both! :)
