Back to the Fertility Specialist!

Here we go again ;) I'm excited to go back to our specialist, but am also kind of apprehensive. Fertility treatments take a lot out of a person, physically, mentally-and financially (just being pragmatic). Fortunately, my insurance seems to be pretty generous in this area. This is a point for which I am eternally grateful. I'm also so very grateful for the technology that has allowed us to become parents, so I hope this does not sound like I am complaining. I would gladly go through it all again (and more) if it means having another child.

I have a lot to do before that appointment, which is September 22nd. I still want to lose some more weight, in hopes of dragging my pcos back into submission...or at least tame it a bit. I have been doing well lately as far as eating well goes-not so much with the exercise though. Its been incredibly hot here the last week-high in the mid 90's and extremely humid. Which means no jogging or walking for Alex and I. Anyway-I have to whip out some hard core self control while in Australia-as I'm sure that there will be all sorts of eating there...and who doesn't overeat when they are on vacation? But I'm going to try very hard to make good choices to at least maintain while I'm gone.

Other than that...just waiting for the appointment. I'm glad it's not until September. I'm glad to have this summer without worrying about babies (except my own) and pregnancy. I want to just enjoy Dan and Alex and yeah, have a few drinks too. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that things work out again. I've been blessed with Alex-sometimes I wonder if it can happen again? Right now, I'm just going to throw it up to God ;) Because, really, what else can I do? While this thought would have been troubling to me in the past, now it gives me a degree of comfort. Anyways-hoping and praying for the best :)

  1. Read as much as you can about fertility problems and ask questions of your doctor and other couples in your situation.
