The Infertility Journey

The journey of infertility has been crazy! I had exploratory surgery last week. They didn't find anything abnormal. I had mixed feelings about the results. I'm happy I'm okay, but part of me wanted them to find something. I just want answers on why I can't seem to get pregnant. I don't know if I will ever have an answer to this question. I'm finally feeling good. We decided this week to start hormone injections. I almost passed out when I found out it's going to cost me $1400. Of course, insurance doesn't pay for them. BIG SHOCKER! I will have to give myself a shot every day for a month. My husband thought he was going to get to give them to me. I can tell you the gleam in his eyes scared me. LOL But, I can do it myself since I can to the injections in my stomach. I can't wait to see what kind of crazed lunatic I will become on hormones. When I took Clomid, I had hot flashes as if I was experiencing menopause. I guess we will see. I have a calendar, but I'm still a nervous wreck about keeping track. Going through infertility treatments is like a second job. I pray this will work this time. I'm so thankful to have a friend who has experienced this difficult situation. She answers all of my questions. Keep us in your prayers!

OTS - I finally gave in and am reading Twilight. I can't wait to see if it is as good as everyone tells me.

Enjoy Twilight. It is VERY addicting!

I can assure you that Twilight is very good. After we lost Logan, I needed a "get-away"...Twilight became just that. I finished all four of them in one week, which is super crazy.

I can only imagine how difficult this time is for you and I do know overwhelming the desire to have a baby can get to be. I am here if you ever need to talk or vent. I will continue to pray for you guys.
