Time for Something New

Well, we had our appointment at Wilford Hall down in San Antonio this past week. At the appointment we went over our medical history and what we have done so far during our journey trying to conceive. We discussed our next step, which is to do an IUI (intrauterine insemination), and the possibility of IVF (invitro fertilization) if the IUI does not work. I also had an ultrasound so the doctors could examine my cysts. I will always have cysts because of my PCOS, but apparently there is a cyst that is a decent enough size for them to want it removed. The solution they came up with is to put my on Birth Control for a month in hopes that the cyst goes away. I was not happy about this at all. Unfortunately, if the cyst does not go away I will have to have it surgically removed. Since Matt is going to be gone for a month in January they were going to have me stay on it until he gets back and then immediately go in to doing the IUI in February. I have decided not to take the birth control for December since Matt is still here. I am giving my body a chance to work itself out on it's own and giving us one last opportunity to conceive naturally. I believe that God can work miracles and I am not giving up hope that we could conceive this month. If we are not successful, then I will take the pill while Matt is gone. I am nervous about the cyst and hope that I will not have to have surgery, but I will do what I need to do. I am excited that we are getting somewhere though, and that we are finally able to try something new. I have not given up hope yet and am trying to remain as positive as I can be. This week has been a low one and I have had a few good cries, but I am ready to pick myself back up and move forward.

PS. My husband is the most awesome man in the entire world and I am so very grateful for him. He is my best friend and has been my rock. I am so blessed to have him as a partner and thank God every day for putting him in my life.

And to all who read this and have been praying for us and supporting us through this.. THANK YOU :)
