  • Bad news: i'm an emotional mess

    Good news: dr called and really wants me to stay in the IUI game (she's positive about my health) and has given me plenty of other options for moving on, should I want to.

    Bad news: SIL announced that they are trying for baby #2 Sunday. baby #1 came along when we first found out about our fertility issues. now baby #2 might come along at our crossroads between stopping fertility and moving onto adoption. ugh. (shouldn't this be under good news, a new baby?)

    Good news: DH and I have decided to meet with our priest and have a sacrament done, to help us cope with emotional and physical well being (big step for us)

    Good news: We have taken steps and contacted some people to put us in touch with adoption agencies. we even bought a book. we will try a few more iui's but are looking at other things. we have a plan.

    so count... bad news=2, good news=3 ....even though i feel like crap, the good news beats the bad news i guess

  • I totally get the SIL issue. It's hard not to be sad, jealous or angry when the news of someone else's plans don't match your reality....

    As for the sacrament, doctor's plans and adoption --- I think they are all great ideas. I don't think exploring every option is bad. I think it's smart! The more options you have, the better.

  • I hope the good news continues to outweigh the bad throughout this holiday season and you come out on the other side with a brightened new perspective and a good plan in place to make your dreams of being parents a reality.

  • update on a good news: we had our sacrament done at church. it was short and sweet, but i got very teary eyed. i told them i was praying for guidance and health (as we were considering adoption) and they kinda focused on me being able to conceive quickly (maybe that's what i really want anyway) odd thing, after DH got the oil on his forehead and we got home, he got a red streak from it, and a week later, its still there. so he was allergic to the oil. what are the odds....
