AF came. 2 days earlier then expected.  So thats that.  We are moving, so we aren’t doing IF treatments anymore until we move and get new insurance.  Which could be 3 months or it could 3 years.

Yeah.  So that’s that.


so so sorry March 15, 2009

you guys, seriously, if any of you are still reading this…im so so sorry. i have been the worst at posting recently.   i have some excuses for it, but i do want to apologize.  the main excuse is that im trying not to use my work computer anymore for anything un-work related (which is really really hard for me by the way..) and we dont have the internet at home anymore…so, please forgive me.

i am smack dab in the middle of my first 2WW.  Can any of you remember your first one? I feel so many different feelings at once….knowing that this will be the last one for awhile since we are moving makes me feel sad.  knowing that if i do get pregnant i will really complicate our move makes me scared as hell.  knowing that i could actually be pregnant this time makes me giddy with the possibilities.  so realy im just trying not to think about it too much, it just hurts my head.

any good ideas on how to not think about baby stuff during your 2WW?  hope everyone is doing well, i still allow myself to read the blogs while at work, just only once a day, so i am still keeping up with you all, even though i havent been posting! good luck to all you in 2ww and congrats to those of you with BFPs in the past month.  to those of you with bad news or no news at all, im praying for you all!


The Pipers… March 5, 2009

I was just given this link to another blog from a friend who is encouraging me during my IF journey and I thought I should share it with all of you.  Although this post was written due to grieving over a still born child, I was amazed at how familiar her process is to mine…please read this and be encouraged as I was that you are not alone in your grief…



Big news! March 3, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — restorethmysoul @ 9:00 pm

So big big news: We are moving to Chicago!  Yup, P got accepted into his second choice grad school for Art History, School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  He has yet to hear from his first choice, but his first choice is also in Chicago, U. of C., so no matter what, come July, rain or shine, job or not, we will be moving!

This is so crazy, I am having a hard time knowing what to feel.  I really didn’t think this would actually happen, so now I have to reorder my expectations for sure.  Im scared about getting a job, I’m scared about getting IF coverage, I’m scared I will get pregnant this month and then NEVER be able to get a job 6 months pregnant.

I really need to trust that the Lord is Sovereign and will care for us, but it is so hard sometimes.  I started the injections last night, my ovaries are already sore, is this normal?  After this cycle, we will be doing strictly natural (with metformin) cycles until we move, just to save some cash in case we don’t get jobs right away.  I’m actually kind of nervous about telling my RE and nurse about this decision for some reason, but I’m sure it will be fine.  I told my acupuncturist today and she was so encouraging.  I think I may continue to go to her once a month right before AF, because it really makes itmuch more manageable.

So, do any of you live in Chicago?  Any advice about job hunting? We have great friends that live there already and who are willing to help us out, but all the help I can get would be awesome!
