It’s my birthday

I’m a little sad about it.  I realized today that more than likely I will be 30 before I have a child.  I turned 29 today.  We began trying when I was 25.  What a long long long hard journey, and we’re not even there yet.  I’m not upset about 30 and pregnant.  I’m upset because I always thought I would have 2 children by the time I was 30.  Ha!

I don’t even really think we’re close yet.  There are days when I feel “okay” with everything.  Today was rough.  Last year on my birthday, I posted this https://girlykat.wordpress.com/2009/10/28/beta-2/.  Last year my birthday was fantastic.  I found out our IUI “worked”. 

This year, I feel so much farther away from a baby.  We decided to save for IVF.  In January we will do one last IUI.  We will continue saving for IVF, and should be ready for it in about a year.  In the meantime, we’ll do the whole TI thing.  Maybe it will work. 

Maybe tomorrow I won’t feel so down.  But right now, I’m a little sad and bitter.

WW weigh in

I decided to join weight watchers last week. I figured we have a forced 3 month break (although we’ll be doing TI). Flame away! 🙂 So I thought I’d use my time wisely. And I decided on weight watchers because I like the idea of having to weigh in in front of someone. Helps keep me honest.
Anyway, my first weigh in was last night.

-3.2 lbs

Yay! The goal is 20 lbs in 3 months.

Nothing is going on here. The RE is considering my non-viable pregnancy a miscarriage.  They are making us wait 3 cycles to do another IUI.  We’re not too sure what our next step will be. 

But I’m here.  I just have nothing to say.
