Well, it’s official. I have scheduled my appointment to meet the RE to discuss our plan and timeline for IVF. It is very challenging to get in for an appointment and though we intend to do two more IUIs, we felt it best to get a date on the calendar. In reality, we are hoping that we end up needing to cancel this appointment. (Wouldn’t that be an AMAZING gift?) It was pretty surreal discussing with the nurse the process, the timing, and a touch of finances. We had a preliminary meeting with the RE months ago, but this time it felt different, now being something we plan to pursue. I really didn’t think we would ever arrive at this point. But here we are, two short months away.
We are headed to France at the end of May for 2 weeks. A last hurrah, or so we hope. We planned one last year to Italy and Greece. The last big trip before the kiddos come. But the children never came and so here we are…a year + later. Honestly, planning adventures is what keeps me sane and next to my faith, its what gets me through IF. Keeps me smiling. It also keeps me reading while I throw myself into the history and culture of France. As I type this, my husband is tuned into a French lesson…learning the basics. I think it’s paramount in this journey to have something to look forward to. I like to refer to them as my “Mileposts of Joy” along the way. Things that I love, things ever on the horizon. A needed distraction, a favorite indulgence, a special date, or an opportunity to get out of dodge.
That being said…we are looking to kickstart our IVF sequence in JUNE.
