I feel like I've temporarily abandoned my little corner of the interwebs, but for good reason. You may have read that my Grandpa passed away last week. It was a long day and a half spent in the hospital watching him on life support then watching him naturally pass after about 6 hours off life support. I have been spending every afternoon down at my grandmas with my family having dinners and conversating and making sure my Grandma is occupied.
Last Thursday this article about our infertility journey was published in our local newspaper. You guys might remember I mentioned a few weekends ago being interviewed, well this is it! We are so happy with how it turned out and we have been complimented quite a bit on our decision to share our journey so publicly. The week of NIAW I will also share the pod cast we did with IV Small Talk too!
I was bummed they put this picture in the paper and not the one of Joe and I that they put on the online version, but oh well, I am very happy to have had the opportunity to share this.
On the house forefront, we are getting closer and closer to being finished but still waiting for the septic and the replacement windows. Those things along with the wiring are the biggest hurdles to jump. Things have slowed down a bit now that Joe is back at work. He has been working really long 10+ hour days and Saturdays and has had very limited time to spend at the house. I am still holding on to hope that we could get in by the end of this month, but the realist in me says May will be more likely. I've been doing a lot of cleaning and getting our bedroom ready. I put our bed together and our mattress will be delivered next week. I also got a really nice closet organizer/clothes hanger that I'm hoping we can assemble this weekend!
so happy with how this vanity and counter top turned out!
Other than that things have been pretty quiet. I am planning a big change to my look this weekend that I can't wait to share with you guys! It's time to make a change and I'm really pumped for this one! It’s been a stressful and exhausting couple of days and I’m hoping to return to some kind of normalcy soon. The rest of this month is pretty quiet, no real plans except maybe dinner with some friends. It’s nice not having any weekend commitments although next month will probably get crazier. Joe’s little sister is graduating from college, we will hopefully be moving, warmer weather will be coming, and we will be checking a few mini milestones off of our road to IVFx4.
Speaking of IVFx4, I received my calendars and it looks like baseline ultrasound & labs will be scheduled for July 10th. I probably won’t have much to say on the infertility forefront over these next few months, but I will be sure to post now and then about what is going on. Although the time is already passing quickly, I am making mini milestones for myself each month in order to feel like we are making some progress. This week’s mini milestone is , last BCP, then is, start a new BCP. Next month’s mini milestone will be 1st Lupron Depot, last BCP, first BCP, and I will be starting the Aygestin which is the 6 week medication for the negative Beta3 Integrin protocol. Things should move along pretty quickly!
Hope everyone is doing well! I've been pretty MIA and I will probably continue to step back for just a little bit while, I will check my blog feed periodically throughout the week and try to keep up with everything as much as I can. Thank you all for your love and support, as always!
