Opportunities and Lack Thereof

Well, actually trying this month sure as hell isn't happening.  It would be time to BD around now, but I spent my weekend sleeping off Flexeril and pain pills.  I was able to work today, which was better than Friday (when I went home to sleep off meds after lying on a flat surface for the HSG).  Still, not up for anything active.  I skipped my walking group tonight to come home and write up 3 episodes for SnarkFood because my ankle's doing better but I didn't want to put that or my back to the test. 

On the other hand, I don't really feel like I'm missing an opportunity this month because I don't have any reason to believe at this point that trying in the traditional manner would be effective.  I've gotten to the point of thinking there's a good chance we'll become biological parents, but that comes from putting my faith in medicine, not in chance.  Our next appointment is this Thursday, and we'll be discussing the test results for me and DH and determining where to go next.  Since IUI doesn't seem to be covered, though, it seems like the only real question is when we do our first IVF cycle.  At least in the fall I'm more free than DH is, since he's the one going off and covering football games.  I wonder how long before retrieval his part can be taken care of in case my retrieval is on a weekend.

I am finding that baby announcements aren't bothering me as much as they were for the longest time.  I guess my heart has finally caught up to my mind in terms of knowing that we're making progress and thinking that we might actually be able to become parents.


  1. I'm so glad you're beginning to have some hope in your heart. I firmly believe it's going to happen, thru something medical - either a change in your health or IVF or a combo.

  2. I am so glad you're finally in the process somwhere, you know?? I think THAT is what make me have some hope...just knowing that we're DOING something about it.
