All - I want to thank each of you for your love and support. I am going to try and be much better at actually responding to comments on this blog. At first I didn't even know I could do that, but I am fast learner (sort of) and I have figured it out. Okay moving forward I will respond to comments posted here. For those who have already posted. Thank you from the bottom of my heart your words of encouragement and especially your continued prayers mean a great deal to me as they are desperately needed while Andrew and I go down this path. So again thank you. For those who asked some questions. I am going to try and go back through and answer a few of what I have learned or what my particular facility does, recommends, etc. There were not many questions so I may just do it in one post.
Also please note to protect myself and my emotions I am not going to give out exact dates as to when Andrew and I are going to be starting and/or finishing any of the procedures, medications, appointments, etc. As much as I am trying to be open about everything I don't think I have fully prepared myself for the what ifs and I don't know if I can handle questions or inquiries as to if it worked, when is it going to take place etc.
Assuming all goes well I will announce when Andrew and I have made it to the second trimester when I believe we can breathe a bit easier (although I am not naive I know all times during pregnancy require a lot of caution). Additionally, I am planning on taking good notes so that I can reflect back and write about what happened and the step by step process of what it means to go through IVF. How I felt, what I went through, how Andrew felt, those around me, etc.
I will write on here about how I am feeling and thoughts I am having. I will also try and mix it up a bit and simply reflect on what it means to be a woman of God in today's world married to a man trying to change this world :)
Okay all, here we go...
