It feels like we haven't had much going on lately but in reality we do. There are so many little things that are happening or that could happen. One thing I really haven't talked about lately is our fertility journey.
We found out a few weeks ago that Kyle does not have the genetic abnormality that the doctors thought he did. His tests actually came back completely normal as well. So we are two people with no genetic abnormalities but still struggle to get pregnant and to keep a pregnancy. Well the latter problem is apparently a fluke. We now know that it is imperative that Kyle has surgery to remove a varicose vein (really not trying to be TMI), the doctors have told us that it could increase fertility by upwards of 60%.
Now here is the tricky part. From now until November Kyle will only have 20 days at home, the rest of the time is spent in the field training others. This does not make for an easy time to get to San Antonio for the surgery. We have decided to push it off until November/December when we know he will have some time to recoup for a few days. Every step we take I feel as though we are getting closer to our dream of having a baby and every day we are becoming more secure in different ways.
We have been able to check things off our goals such as me graduating college and eliminating debt, etc. I do believe everything happens for a reason and at the right time (as much as it sucks to say it, I know that it is true).
We will now move forward and use these next few months to prepare ourselves for the future and prepare for the possibility that IVF could be our last chance for a biological child. We are hoping though that this surgery could change everything for us. While we are grateful that a doctor has finally discovered this we are frustrated that it has taken this long.
Here is to the future! :)
