Happy Birthday!

Today is my husband’s birthday. I was really hoping to give him a BFP, but it isn’t going to happen. Not today anyway. Blah. I’m only 11 DPO (3 days before my period is due) so it’s not over til the fat lady sings.

So update:
I went to the infertility clinic on base. First of all, thank God they do this on base, it could cost a pretty penny out in town! Β The appointment went well. She didn’t do much, took my information, told me the course of action and sent me to the lab. They took 16 vials of blood. Yes, sixteen. Fine, all for a good cause! After this, Juan has his tests (nothing invasive like mine, but still difficult…) and I have one more test. The HSG. DUN dun Duuuuuuun! LOL, it’s really not that bad. Basically they’ll inject dye into my uterus and take an x-ray. They just want to be sure there are no blockages or abnormalities. After the HSG we’ll wait for the next cycle then start meds and, depending on Juan’s test, IUI. Hopefully his tests are normal and we won’t need that right away, but no matter what they only do each treatment for 3 cycles. So if we don’t get pregnant on meds alone, we’ll move on to the IUI, then different drugs and finally IVF. So that’s up to a year of treatment.

We’re really lucky though, most people go through this for much much longer with no results. I’m hoping that we don’t have to move on to anything too drastic. Sigh. Either way, those meds have a high rate of twins. I don’t care what Pancho says I’m keeping my fingers crossed! I know it could be very hard, but people do it all the time and I think we can do it. A girl I know has twins and she said it’s just the first two months that are super hard then it gets easier. I think if we get twins first, no kid will be too hard! πŸ˜› Like I said, I know it’s going to be hard. So is natural childbirth but I want to do that too. And YES IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE BIRTH TO TWINS NATURALLY. We don’t hear about it much because of, you guessed it, doctors intervening. So here’s what I hope to be in less than a year. πŸ™‚

Well I’m off to try to get Pancho to go kayaking. πŸ™‚

    Wow, I didn’t realize they HAD infertility clinics on post! That’s AWESOME for you, though πŸ™‚ Good luck with everything. And… don’t give up on this cycle yet. I didn’t get my bfp until 13dpo (and it was LIGHT). My first “real” bfp (where I was like, yep, definitely pregnant!) was at 15dpo. Sooo… hang in there. And if this isn’t your month, I hope the test results are good and some meds will help you out.

      I will continue to pray and that the Lord bless you and Pancho that this happens and work out for you. I know that you will be a good Mom, If it is a boy, Pancho needs to teach him sports and not video games LOL. Love you my precious daughter.

      Love you

        I hope it’s not a boy for only one reason… We can’t agree on ONE boy name. LOL, jk, I just want a healthy baby at this point!
