Our Fight Against Infertility

We have been married for 10 yrs. We have a beautiful 9yr old daughter, who is just amazing. We are ready for another addition to our family. We are ready to go, we just need a little help. With two failed IVF cycles and an IUI, we arent sure whats next!

Up Next...Injectable Cycle

Well, we are not ready for another IVF. Not financially or emotionally. So we are going to try an injectable cycle. I will be on Gonal F for 7 days, then a trigger shot. This should hopefully produce more and better quality eggs. More targets, better chance of pregnancy. So I hope this will go well. I am slowly but surely losing hope. I keep trying to picture my life with only 1 child, and its hard. I know I am SO lucky to have her, but it still hurts.

Z and I leave tomorrow for Missouri. Z's grandmother passed away. We are very sad, but at peace with the fact that she is no longer suffering. What a wonderful woman she was. She was quite possible the strongest woman I have ever met. We will miss her very much.

I will be away from the computer for a few days, but will update on my injections when I return.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a wonderful New years! We had a great one. We spent it with some friends at our house. It was a lot of fun.

As for me, Im still not pregnant. I am hoping 2009 will bring us our baby. We have quite a few friends who are expecting. I am truly happy for them, but I wont lie, it makes me sad as well. It makes me sad for me. I feel like I have been through enough, I deserve the right to be selfish sometimes. It is the hardest when shopping for a baby gift. I see all the things that I long to buy, and wonder why I dont get to. I go through ups and downs. I know there are so many others going through the same thing as us, but I still feel so alone.

Here to starting fresh! I hope the new year brings you all you hope for.
