Our journey to conceive has been a long one.
Well, long to us.
We have been having unprotected sex, and no medications (IE: birth control) for almost 3 years now.
We have talked it through with my OBGYN (who is quite awesome by the way), and he gave me some medication to try and help...which it didn't.
We know that lots of people go many more years of infertility than our 3, and some who cant get pregnant at all, but knowing that doesn't make our journey any less difficult.
All i want to be is a mom. Jace wants to be a dad.
Well, we have finally took our first major step into over-coming our infertility. In January we met with a fertility specialist who my cousin has gone to twice now. And each time, she has gotten pregnant and now has a beautiful little girl and another due this next month.
We didn't know what to expect. Its taken us this long to get into a specialist because our insurance wasn't such that we could afford to go. That all changed with the new year.
Our first appointment was a 2 hour appointment. and it was a whirlwind of information. We both were very impressed with the Dr. and his confidence and knowledge.
It was full of ultrasounds, blood tests, going over options, making appointments (3 in that first week), and then going over to fill my prescriptions (one to start taking that very night!)
We (me mostly) were shocked at how FAST is was all going. Everything was working out the way that it should have because i HAPPENED to be on my period (the 3rd one that month, mind you) and it HAPPENED to be on the day of the cycle needed to have the HSG testing done that week, and it HAPPENED to be perfect to start on a medication so we can see how my body reacts to it.
We don't believe in coincidence. We believe in a Heavenly Father who loves us and knows how hard this has been for us. We had been fasting and praying for this to go fairly smoothly for awhile now.
That was our first experience with a fertility clinic. And, I gotta say, I was impressed.
Next up in our story the HSG test.
