Let me start by saying that I feel that my infertility has been trying to define me lately. I have been finding myself getting really negative every time I see a baby announcement on Facebook. It is frustrating to see people who have been married for less than a year have their dreams come true. We have been together for almost 10 years and married for 7! When is it our time?! We deserve it more than a lot of people that I know. Grrr. Anyways, I refuse to let it define me. I need to take a deep breath and just think positively. No matter what happens in life, I have been blessed with an amazing family, a close group of wonderful friends, a fabulous husband, and the sweetest most fun dogs in the world. If we were to be blessed with a child, it would be so wonderful, but if that is not in our cards, then at least I have a nephew to spoil and another one on the way! :) Besides...we always joke that we are going to buy a home in Mexico....it's more doable without the extra expenses of a child! ;)
Speaking of my nephews, I got to spend a little time with Lukas on Wednesday. He is such an adorable little boy. I love him to pieces. He is almost 11 months old. OMG time flies! Then...on Thursday I found out that I am indeed going to have ANOTHER nephew come September. :) His name is Nathaniel (or Nate for short). Yay! I am BEYOND excited! :)

To start off...for those of you that don't know...my husband and I are on a month break from meds and

Monday is my next step appointment with the Reproductive Endocrinologist. From talking to my favorite nurse, the RE will more than likely have me do an injection that works directly on my ovaries instead of taking Clomid. We have 3 more IUI's that are covered under insurance....then I guess it may be IVF. I at least plan on doing one more cycle (next month). I may end up taking a break after that. I am hoping to get a summer school teacher's aide position in my school district. If I do, I will be working the same hours that the clinic has set up for ultrasounds and lab work. Bummer. I am going to ask the RE if they make any exceptions and do some in the afternoon. We will see.
