Knocked down by infertility.
Knocked up by my infertility doctor

Hoping to get knocked up one more time...

The 2ww is almost over!
Tomorrow morning I will be taking another 5 hour trip to and from the doctor's office to take a simple blood test. The simple blood test that will tell me whether of not the past six weeks were all for naught or if I will have a bloody miracle out of it. I'm happy to make this trip because at least I'll know. The waiting will be over. Hopefully my sanity and patience will return.
I have decided that I do have some of the best friends ever. Either way it turns out, the emails and phone calls have made a huge difference especially with Vince not here. Likewise my blog-buddies, thanks for the messages. They help. Thanks!
Teacher. Military Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Infertile. Now Mother.
I use to spend my days warping young minds as a teacher. However, three IVFs and one super fabulous donor later, I found myself knocked up by another man. Now, I'm a mom staying at home with baby E, working online, and loving life in Alaska. Now, we are on the journey for baby #2 via embryo donation from IVFlygirl and her family.
