Where We Are Now (May 2008)

Our doctor felt that since we had been able to find and correct some problems with the surgery in January, we should be safe to try again after I recovered. The most surprising thing to us was his simple approach. No shots, no progesterone supplements, no standing on my head (ok, I’d never tried that third one before). Just prenatal vitamins and continue with the baby aspirin and my usual thyroid medication. (I haven’t mentioned that before but I have hypothyroidism. Thyroid problems run in my family so I’ve been on top of it from the beginning.)

It feels like starting all over again but it almost feels good to start from scratch. That’s a weird expression to use here since nothing we do from here on out is from scratch! We have been down a very long road and now that all of that is behind us I can’t pretend it didn’t happen. I’ve hit most of the major points here. If you have read all three parts of My Story let me just say, “Wow.” You deserve a medal, or at the very least, a cookie. (I’d choose a cookie over a medal any day!) I really do appreciate the time it took for you to read it all and share in some way in our story.

So here we are at another crossroad. I’m not sure what will happen next as we try again. I do remain hopeful, which may seem ridiculous to someone who just read all of that. I know it doesn’t make sense. But I believe it can happen. And if doesn’t I’ll be very, very sad but we will be ok. I know that one way or another there are great things to come somewhere down the road.

I want you to know that I cannot imagine where the two of you have had to walk thru the last 10 years of your marriage and infertility. I want you to know that I am beginning to pray for a miracle birth for you guys. It saddens me that so often I take my own children for granted. Tears fall from my face as I type this to you. I am praying that God's blessing will be upon you and that emotionally you'll be complete in Him.

Welcome to the blogging community. Thank you for your willingness to speak out on the journey.

As I read through your posts, I am reminded of Hebrews 11. May His blessings rain down upon you as you continue to walk in faith.

I look forward to reading what else you have to say.
