Just a few things

Sorry I haven’t been around much. My new job is taking up a lot of my time. It’s going well though. This past week, I’ve been really sick with the flu, as well. I promise to catch up with you all as soon as I can. I’m thinking of you all!!

I should be gearing up to ovulate this weekend! Like I said in my last post, we are sort of trying. I actually haven’t even thought of it much, between being sick and working. I still feel some fight left in me, so I might as well use it while I can.

I decided to schedule my Lap surgery – at least to rule things out and have peace of mind (or who knows, they may find something!). I’m playing phone tag with the scheduler at the moment. I’m also scheduling my 2nd opinon with Dr. Kwak-Kim (another autoimmune specialist). I requested my lab results from Dr. Sher to be sent to Dr. Kwak-Kim, then they will call me to schedule.

So I like having some possibilities to look forward to, as we still save for a surrogate or adoption. Feels good to have some plans in place. Even if we find no new information, at least I know I have exhausted all my resources and done everything I could.

  1. I believe that persistence pays off! Good luck with all you have coming up. Hope you get a beautiful sticky bfp this cycle and don’t have to even think about doing the other things 😉

  2. I’m glad you still have fight in you! it’s good to exhaust all of your resources and know that you’ve done all that you can to achieve your dream. I hope you get more answers and/or hope from the surgery and the 2nd opinion!

  3. I completely understand, you want to feel like you have done everything. I know I wouldn’t be at peace with moving on to something else if I hadn’t tried everything.
    I am thinking of you and I hope you are enjoying your new job!

  4. Sorry to hear that you haven’t been feeling well…. it makes this journey so much harder. I always find it reassuring to have a plan and find some hope in things… fighting through this with you xoxo

  5. So glad the job is going well and that’s great that it’s keeping your mind busy. Hope the lap gives you some answers and will keep fingers crossed about your cycle this month!

  6. Lisa, I heard that being sick when just past ovulation/2ww could be good. Makes your body fight off other things and not the little baby starting to grow. Praying for you. One day you are bound to have a little one of your own, we just can’t plan when he/she will show up and what route they will come to us.

    I like Romans 8:28 (NLT) “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

    Better yet I like this version, but wish the p word would be real for both of us…=)

    Romans 8:26-28 (The Message) “Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

    ♥ Praying for you and Andy. I hope one day we can both say we gave birth to our own children, but if not I know that it will be because God was working something else for the better good. Be it adoption of a child, or using a surrogate…either way God knows the desires of our hearts, and says if we keep knocking, asking, and seeking we will be given what we ask for in Jesus’s name. Just sometimes he shapes our heart along the way so what we are asking for is different than what we first imagined. (Sorry I took over your comments…left you a book to read.) I think of you often! God bless.

  7. I totally understand this ‘no stone unturned’ strategy. Much luck to you with the lap- email me if you want any info about lap surgery. I had one back in ’09 and found it to be not so bad. I hope this brings you closer to that take home baby that you so very much deserve to have.
    always holding you in thoughts and heart my sweet friend.
