Making Dates, Taking Names

Making Dates, Taking Names

We are currently scheduling our life away with the IVF clinic and anyone else that we need to (pre-op with family doctors, etc). There are always so many things to worry about but our Fertility Doctor emailed us a handy dandy calendar with everything written down! It just sits in the middle of the kitchen, so not to be forgotten.

Going into round two of this whole ‘making a baby’ is both easier and more difficult than the first time. We know what we are getting into this time around. We know what drugs there will be, when we start and stop them, what they do and hoe long with have to be on them.

BUT with a failure the first time and just knowing that great disappointment we felt, and having NO way of knowing what went wrong, it makes this time around harder. There is always a chance of a failed outcome again and now we know exactly what that feels like, and it is not good at all, it took us a couple weeks to even adventure out of our house to see people again.


More thanks with this post!

And we want to take some extra time this time around to just THANK everyone! We have had so many people sharing our story and in general just trying to help us. It is amazing. We know no one has to do these kind of things for us, but they still are and it brings tears to our eyes.

Making Dates, Taking Names

Making Dates, Taking Names

We are currently scheduling our life away with Nurse l33T Joy and her many helpers. There are always so many to worry about but she emailed us a handy dandy calendar with everything written down! It just sits in the middle of the kitchen, so not to be forgotten.

Going into round two of making the ultimate weapon to beat the ultimate bad guy is both easier and more difficult than the first time. We know what we are getting into this time around. We know what potions go with what spells. The timing, and the cast times for each.

BUT with a failure the first time and just knowing that great disappointment we felt, and having NO way of knowing what went wrong, it makes this time around harder. There is always a chance of a failed outcome again and now we know exactly what that feels like, and it is not good at all, it took us a couple weeks to even adventure out of our Hobbit hole to see people again.

We can only move forward! In the words of the wise Duke Nukem
“It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum… and I’m all outta gum.”

The Kindness of Strangers

The Kindness of Strangers

This website has never been about raising the $26,000 it is taking us to create a little human being. We state this a few times. It is about the journey, the friends we have and meet along the way, the others like us who have infertility issues that we hopefully can help.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t have people who help us. Derrian’s family, the kindness and love of CKnights family. The random purchases that show up on the site…

And now this…

Thank you to Jason and Marilyn Jungbluth for being our first donations! We are both blown away (And CKnight might have some firm words he would like to speak to you with.. something about putting your hard earned money towards this loopy idea).

We love you long time!
