About a week ago, I got the answer (or not) I’ve been waiting for since December. Hoping and praying for answers and I got nothing, nada, zilch, which some people would be happy about but in the world of infertility nothing really makes sense.
On March 16, I went in for my blood work for the repetitive pregnancy loss panel. Four vials of blood later, I left feeling a little nauseous, light-headed, and anxious for my next Starbucks fix! Then, I started the TWW (two week wait). Waiting two weeks for blood work is much easier than waiting for that pregnancy test. Go figure! About a week later, I got a phone call that my second part of my blood work came back and it was all NORMAL. The next day, I got the first part back and NORMAL. I feel silly for wanting to something to be wrong. So as of now, everything is fine and we still have zero answers on why we’ve lost. We can chalk it up to bad luck or it just isn’t our time yet.
We are going forward with a frozen embryo transfer. Darren and I have decided that the date will not be made public. We understand people want to know, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to tell what the results are even though we may not be ready to tell. I can tell you though that it IS happening and we’re as ready as we’ll ever be! Please continue to pray for us. Even though you don’t know the exact day of when it is, the date really isn’t all that important.
All infertility issues aside! I am FINALLY ready to get this house looking like we’ve been moved in for a year and a half! I cannot believe it’s really been that long. Some of our friends are wrapping up their homes and Darren and I went look at the Wells’ home and I couldn’t help but feel like I was slacking! Brittany and Jarrett did an AMAZING job building and decorating. So Brittany has inspired me (and she doesn’t even know it!) to get this house decorated!
So, I started with the front porch. Yes, my wreaths are hanging on by a thread but new ones are on their way. I DO NOT have a green thumb in my body so I’m giving those spiffy little plants a week or two.
Next, we finally got our desk in our office built and I LOVE IT! Darren has his “mancave” aka shed so I have an idea of this being MY space for crafts and just to have my junk in one area. Isn’t that what a mancave is?? I’m hoping to get a nice antiqued chair and a table for me to do what I need to do on. This room is pretty big so I’m hoping to get some use out of it.
Well, I think that’s enough of me rambling. I’ll leave you with this sweet little furball. She played so hard yesterday and stayed outside all day long. She is having a hard time recovering. AND the fact that she turns THREE tomorrow doesn’t make it any easier for her!
