Another Week Past

We're another week into the year and I don't feel any closer to attaining our dream.

I'm working long crazy hours and so is Kris. So "us" time doesn't exist like it once did. It's kinda depressing actually.

However, I did end up talking to my doctor a few weeks ago. He called in a prescription for Clomid again this month and insisted I make it in this time for my lab appointment. Last month I didn't make it in because work wouldn't let me off. But this time I'm going to make it in to get my Progesterone draw on time. It's a must this month. If I don't go in, he won't know if I'm ovulating on my own. So we'll see. I'm hoping I ovulate. Who would've thought that after years of preventing and such that now just ovulating is a huge step to get pregnant!

I'm feeling pretty good about this cycle. I don't know why but I have a feeling that ovulation is right around the corner. Just that part will be a huge step at this point.

Kris's car will be paid off next week and we'll be able to start saving even more for IVF. I still have hope for a miracle though! God has always been faithful. Either he will send us a miracle baby or send us the means for IVF. It's just being patient that I'm not good at.

Also, I have given up soda. I've lost about 9 pounds in the last 3 weeks from that alone. I'm drinking about 2 liters of water a day as well. Trying to cut back on the fast food and junk. Maybe we can add some exercise in the mix when my work schedule evens out (if ever.) So keep us in your prayers. I'm also praying for God to open the door to a new job for me. These 60+ hour weeks are just killing me. But for now, I guess that's it. I'll post again next week when I have my lab report back.

IF and too much to do

I'm gonna try to be better about posting. It just always seems that I try not to think about things so much.

But in the midst of this storm, there's a lighthouse on the shore. We're approaching 16 months of TTC. I mentioned all the hoops we're having to go through to get to destination baby. Some of those hoops will be in the past in about a month. Our tax return was better than we expected and we'll hopefully be able to proceed with IVF in October. We could possibly do it before then, but I'm hoping for October! It's a wonderful month; my birthday, our anniversary and just a great month all around.

I have set some goals and intend to complete them all before IVF. The major one is weight loss and to improve our lifestyle. We need to be healthier, but especially me since I'll be the one carrying our little miracle (or two!) Decrease our clutter is another huge thing. How do 2 people accumulate so much stuff. Really, just stuff. We're donating most of it to local charities and safe houses for women.

Kris is doing so well at his new job. Well, not so new anymore. It's great to see him succeed! Not just because he's my husband, but because he was suppressed for so long in the golf business. When he does a good job, he hears it. That goes a long way. He's happier and we can spend Sundays together. It makes a huge difference in our relationship as well. We're both happier.

All is well on our journey for now!
