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.


  1. Hi Laura :)

    I've been meaning to thank you for the beautiful comment on my blog - I loved it! And I also wanted to check on you to see how you are doing. It sounds like you have a good plan going with IVF, but I really hope you don't need it! I just got an email from someone who was preparing for IVF and conceived naturally the cycle before, so I hope you are next for that! Either way, just know that you have more support than you think out here in the world and just have faith that it will happen. You are so right, God will come through with either a miracle or the means to do your IVF cycle. It will happen for you :)

    Take care and keep me updated -
