I know so many of you are praying for us as we struggle through this messy infertility business and I wanted to update you on where we are now.
At the beginning of July we had our first appointment with a fertility specialist. That meeting was shortly followed by a flurry of tests and a short period of waiting. Some of the tests were simple and easy and the results came back quickly. A few of them were awkward, painful, invasive, or long. And the waiting, while relatively short, felt infinite. I was nervous.
Long story short, there's nothing wrong with either of us. All of our tests came back with the results that we are perfectly normal. Healthy, even. I hear this is called "unexplained infertility."
We haven't had our official "wrap up" appointment with our doctors yet. I know there are procedures they can offer us and medications we can try to increase our monthly chances, which the doctors say are on average about 3% monthly.
We're still thinking and praying about those options. We're also still pursuing acupuncture and alternative medicines and foods. We're praying and slowly pursuing other options, like adoption and foster care. We're sort of going in all directions at once, like working on a blog/ideas to start raising money to adopt and also finishing up a room to use as foster care kids room. I have no idea what God wants us to do. I know He'll make it clear in time, but that time never seems to be now.
Some moments I am filled with peace and hope and renewed energy to try, try again.
And sometimes I'm not.
Thanks for listening, friends. It really does mean the world to me.
