Here I am again! This is real! We are going through with this! Sometimes it still feels unreal that fifteen years after meeting J that we will be going through this together. I think this makes us related now. I feel like she is my sister, so now we can just make it official!
I am excited and admittedly a little nervous. I will be taking crazy drugs (that I heard will make me a bit fat and have a mean headache) and leaving my family for ten days. I have never been away from my husband that long in the ten years we have been married. Not to mention the two other kids I will be leaving at home. Thankfully I have a great friend who will be keeping them and is hugely supportive and a WONDERFUL husband who thinks this is a great idea!
I also have to say thanks to the entire family who will be putting up with me, Tink and my mom for a very long time. Hopefully we will be the best house guests ever!!! My school has been extremely understanding and wishes everyone the best of luck. It is amazing the support I have been getting from them. I found out our assistant principal went through the exact same thing and ended up adopting a little girl. You never know who you will meet that will endure the heartache that so many of you have felt. I hope that this act will not only help a wonderful man and woman to be parents, but that everyone has hope of someone giving the gift to you, whether it is through adoption, egg donation or just support and understanding. After reading several of your blogs, I wish the same for all of you. I have a whole new perspective on infertility that I never had to think of and I am a better person for having been directly involved in the process.
Wish us luck! Does anyone think that acupuncture will help me with making good healthy sticky eggs?
