Hey, everyone, I'm Jessie and welcome to my little corner of the blogoverse! DH and I have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, but we turned out to both be carriers of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Because of that, we're waiting to be able to have IVF with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). What we're waiting on right now is the PGD lab creating the probe, which is what they compare each embryo against to see which ones would have SMA. We're hoping to be able to start a cycle in June, after a LOT of insurance nightmares.
After a bit of a hiatus for me to get over pneumonia, this is going to be a busy ICLW! NAIW starts on Sunday, and I'll be doing a blog post for Bloggers Unite at some point in the week. I'm also participating in Advocacy Day on Wednesday, and I'm sure I'll be writing about that. On Mondays (usually), I post a song that has touched me during the week. I've also been posting a poem every day this month (except when I was too sick) for NaBloPoMo. I've been posting all of my own work at this point, although none of it is new. I'm also starting to participate in Mel's MFA Sunday School, so hopefully I will start creating new work again. Maybe I'll even write more of the book I started many years ago. Come along with me on the adventure and find out!
