A Good Day

Yesterday I had my 2nd opinion appointment at the hospital on post. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The Dr. I was met with was so incredibly nice and listened to everything I had to say. Since Fort Bliss does not have an actual infertility clinic it makes anything beyond clomid incredibly difficult to do. For the next 3 months I will be charting my temperature and taking daily ovulation tests to see if that helps me get pregnant. If we end up having to go the IVF direction I will be referred to an Army hospital that does IVF (there are only 6), the closest is at Fort Sam Houston. Beyond IVF would be the discussion of surrogacy and adoption. My sister has graciously offered to be a surrogate for us if we need her, such an awesome sister! That is the plan right now and I walked out of there happy with the plan and not wanting to cry. I'd call that a success.

The whole day yesterday was pretty good after the appointment I drove to Las Cruces to pick up our Jason Aldean tickets, woo hoo! It was a nice hour drive by myself, I should do that more often. I also got the title to my car in the mail. I can't believe it's paid off and 100% ours. 

I have plans to go to the gym today and then off to Macy's to find a dress for Kyle's Change of Command...we have 2 months but I'm a planner. I did find a really cute Ralph Lauren dress but it was $134, ouch. Praying it goes on sale if I don't find anything else I like. 

I hope you all have a great day!

  4. Yay!! I'm so happy that things went better with this doctor yesterday. Jeremy and I have always used the rhythm method with occasional temperature-takings and ovulation tests to AVOID getting pregnant and it's always worked for us (I've never been on BC!) so hopefully it WILL work for you! If not - you have got one amazing sister! I'm glad you had a good day and I'm wishing you and Kyle luck.

  30. Ahh Jen! Praying for you! Okay, this is really random, but one of my best friends has a friend who has been trying to get pregnant for (I think) around two years. Recently, she did IVFand is now pregnant- due in October. I don't know much about the process, but a lot of the things you mentioned on here, I remember reading on her blog. She has blogged about all of it and was pretty detailed. If you would want to read her blog or anything, let me know. It's just a little family blog (I actually don't even know her, so I am kind of a creeper) but I can give you the link if you want!

  36. What an amazing offer from your sister! I am blown away by that. I wish you luck in the next few months. We struggled to get pregnant for about a year. If I had any advice, I would tell you to try and relax (I know...easier said than done!) Thanks for the follow! Following back.
