We found out this week that we will be PCSing (Army-speak for permanently moving) to Fort Leavenworth near Kansas next summer. To know that we are moving this much in advance is an incredible luxury and I'm suuuuper excited about it!
However, this puts a huge speed bump in our baby making plans. Well it's huge for me because I've been running around trying to figure out if I can fit in FET3 before the holidays. Coincidentally, I can since I got a rip-roaring CD1 yesterday. However, if miracles of miracles occurs and I actually get knocked up this time, I would be due on July 31. That would be the month that we would be scheduled to move.
We can't move the timeline later because we are moving to go to a training that only starts at two points during the year. We can't move it earlier in the year because my hubby needs a specific amount of time in the job that he currently holds. Not hitting the year mark in that position would limit our choices of where we go after the school finishes.
Ultimately if I was a normal pregnant woman or even just a lucky infertile woman, we could swing it. However my crappy cervix precludes us from flippantly running to the doctor to spend thousands of dollars to get pregnant whenever we jolly well feel like it.
So I'm probably going to have to suck it up and wait until January to do the cycle so that the timing works better. I know that it's a mere two months, but I'm oddly compelled to do it now. If I have to bear the disappointment of this not working, I want to be able to move on as soon as possible. Being in limbo just isn't that comfortable.
On the bright side of things....I actually have the opportunity to mull this all over as I have two more beautiful embryos in the cryotanks.
My hubby and I discussed the situation after we put E to bed tonight. He's completely worried about me being pregnant at all while we are moving. When I say at all, I mean that he would prefer me to wait for our final transfer until after we are moved. My initial reaction to waiting ten months is "hell no." However, depending on when our Alaska house sells, this could be sooner. This is a very unexpected twist for me. I'm considering it.
