There is not much going on these days in TTC news.¬† Sorry ūüė¶¬† We are going camping this weekend, so I will catch up on comments on Sunday night/Monday.¬† Feel free to look around and click on whatever you want.¬†

Since its ICLW, I’ll give a brief story of our journey.¬† We have been TTC since January 2007.¬† We were diagnosed with severe MFI in Dec ’08, and then upgraded to MFI in April ’09.¬† Our RE thought that we would pregnant on our own within 6 cycles since the MFI became only a count issue by the time we retested in April.¬† We tried unsuccesfully for 5 cycles, then decided to take a break.¬† We are currently on a mental health break.¬† In January/February we are heading back to the RE to begin IUI cycle(s).¬† I have made peace with the fact that an IUI will be our best opportunity to get pregnant.¬†

Although we are on a break, I still think about having a baby and getting pregnant every single day.¬† I really wish there was a switch you could just turn off.¬† We are doing some fun activities and trips in the next few months, so I’m really looking forward to that.¬† I still find myself getting sad about not having a baby yet and its still rough to think about how long this journey has already been.¬† I’m taking one day a time and some of those days are rougher than others.¬†

Anyway I’ll post some pics of our beach camping trip when I get back.¬† Happy ICLW!

Very moving video

Many of us dealing with infertility have watched this video countless times.  I just had to share it on my blog though.  It is so emotionally overwhelming, but carries a great message.  Enjoy!

We have collectively decided to take a break from TTC.¬† There a¬†few reasons, which I will not go into great detail on, sorry.¬† But the main reason is employment.¬† We are both still employed, don’t worry, but some changes may be coming in the near future.¬† We are currently on cycle 33, and were planning on doing an IUI on cycle 35.¬† We have decided to wait until January and try ONE CYCLE naturally.¬† After that we will begin IUI cycle(s).¬† I have mixed feelings on the whole thing.¬† While I really really really really want to be pregnant and be a mom already( like yesterday), we do need to think responsibly.¬† I am sad to be taking a break, but I am relieved at the same time.¬† I actually feel like I can breathe a little, and focus on something else for a little while.¬† We plan to save extra, in case multiple IUIs are needed.¬† We plan on doing some couple bonding time in the next few months, and¬† I am really looking forward to that.¬† I went into 2009 thinking that this would finally be the year, since ’07 and ’08 were a let down.¬†¬†However, it looks like 2010 will¬†have¬†to be the year of pregnancy, hopefully.¬† I really thought I would see “two lines in ’09”¬† but I was wrong.¬† ¬†This blog will be quite boring and not full of updates for awhile, but I promise to update on fun things we do and places we go.¬† I know there are many of you out there, who have been hoping and praying that my¬†BFP would be right around the corner, and I thank you so much for all the support.¬†¬†You have no idea how well it has carried me through this rough terrain.
