Dont get me wrong, I absolutely love blogging- I love the friendships I have made through this, I love the release of writing things that are on my mind, and I love being able to get wonderful advice from wonderful people! But, the time away was necessary. The whole "Baby Hill Situation" was starting to take a major toll on me and I definitely did not want to end up posting post after post of how sad, angry, frustrated I was.
I think the main factor that contributed to this "get away" time was this realization: a lot of my friends and acquaitances are now expecting or planning for baby #2, I cant even get baby #1. And trust me, I hated having these types of thoughts. I told myself early on that I would face our fertility challange in a positive way and not bring myself or others down because of it. But I think I have learned a lot from this reflective time and I feel a lot better now because of it.
So, Husband and I are very happy to announce that we are moving forward with treatment once again! I am very excited to be going back to our specialist for an appointment this week and (pending his approval) we will pick back up with the daily injections. Our fingers are crossed that this will lead to IUI #2! And, of course, this means I will have much to blog about as we start this whole process over again!
Oh, and I thought I would share this picture with you all (it was taken on Thanksgiving)- just to prove to you that I am still alive! :)
Im off to read your blogs- I have missed you all! :)
