I seriously can not believe it is already December. So much to do, so little time. I actually LOVE this time of year. Although....when my husband and I started TTC back in January, I truly believed I would have a new baby this Christmas. Silly me...even thought about skipping trying in Feb. so the baby wouldn't be born right around Christmas. Oh how I miss those innocent days.
I am still so blessed b/c I do have another precious son. (I realize that I hardly write about him. He is absolutely the love of my life and I would love to write about him everyday. I do, however, realize this is a blog about infertility and I am fully aware that people do not want to read about my child.) I really hope and pray that next Christmas there will be a new bundle of joy. For me and for all of you!
So, one week from tomorrow is my appointment with my dr. to discuss the next step. I am still looking forward to it. I have been saving up for an IUI and hope to go that route. I know in the scheme of infertility treatments an IUI is nothing, but still gathering a thousand plus dollars isn't exactly simple with our current financial situation. Obviously, totally worth whatever cost though.
I have been keeping up with the blogs that I read, and I know that this is a difficult time for so many of you still hoping for baby number 1. My prayers are with you as the holidays seem to sometimes make the sadness stronger. I have been in your shoes. Also, my father had a heart attack on December 23 and died January 8. Although this happened five years ago, the holidays can be hard. I always try to focus on the ~true~ meaning of Christmas and it helps.
I will keep you posted on my appointment. Remember: He is the reason for the season!
