It’s been awhile. I’d like to say that we haven’t been thinking about trying to conceive over the last month, but it’s never far from our minds. Christmas was difficult for us both. We had planned to tell my family about the pregnancy over the holidays, and the reality of our situation put a huge damper on the festivities, to say the least.
I’ve been anxiously awaiting my first post-d&c period, as that was the first marker for when we’ll be able to try again. We’ve decided to do IUI with frozen donor sperm this next round, a decision we didn’t come to lightly, but we’re desperate to change things up in the hopes that we’ll have a different outcome. But, that means there’s no chance this time to go against the RE’s suggestion of waiting two cycles. The next try will be right around the due date for our first pregnancy. This will be an interesting month, as it will be the first time in nearly two years that I will watch my ovulation come and go, with no hopes of becoming pregnant.
So, period one, check. We’re six weeks and counting.
