We are having another yard sale fundraiser on Saturday to help pay for our In-Vitro Fertilization. It looks like good weather (perhaps a little hot, but at least we won't be rained on this time :) We will also have delicious treats and popsicles for sale. Jer has also really been wanting to have a lemonade stand, so we may let him do that too :) Come join us! And as always thank you so much for all your love and support!

Click on the donate button to help us bring another little angel to our family! Even if you are not able to donate, please share our story with others! God Bless!

It's starting to get real. I ordered my medications last week and they came on Friday!
Brandon and I started our z-pak antibiotics yesterday. I have my shot class tomorrow morning to go over how to give myself the injection medications. I will start the first injections in just a couple weeks. I'm not going to lie, it makes me nervous thinking about having to give myself a shot. I do alright at the doctors when others are giving me the shot, but just the thought have having to do it myself kind of gives me anxiety....no matter how small the needle might be. So we'll see how that goes.

It's been a crazy few weeks but things are going well. At the end of May I had my water ultrasound to get a better look at my uterus. Everything looked great and healthy! I've been on a the birth control pills to help regulate my cycles and the metformin to help with the PCOS for about 3 1/2 weeks now. I'm starting to not feel as queasy from the meds but they do make me tired (like I need a nap every day and still want to go to bed early).
Earlier this week I went back for my plan a care visit. They took some blood and went over the schedule of everything we have to do. It's all outlined in an organized, color coded calendar :) It's a very involved process, so it's nice having it all outlined for us. I'll be ordering my meds in the next few days and will start everything next month!
In the meantime, we are keeping busy. Brandon has been working a lot of double shifts to help pay for the treatment and I've been attending some summer teaching conferences. So life is really busy, a little hectic but going well. Thank you again for all the love, support and prayers! We really appreciate it!
