Fertility Doctor


It's been a while so I thought I would update ya'll on what's going on with least fertility-wise.  I have decided, after years of waiting and waiting and...waiting, that I am going to see a fertility doctor.  Actually, I have already made the appointment. 

Why did I wait so long?
The thought of going to a fertility doctor, and then having something happen or being told that there was something else going on is probably one of the most scary things I could think of.  If I try clomid, or some other ovulatory medication and it doesn't help it will be crushing.  I know there ARE other options such as embryo transplants, etc. but they are expensive and not so simple. 

I also had this hope that I was hanging on to.  I felt like if I tried to do everything right, or I had enough faith, that I would get pregnant....WELLLLLL...I am still waiting.  Sometimes I feel like I am being impatient...I have been wating nearly 5 years to do something so I am done "waiting".  I will probably be on some type of fertility medication by the end of the month. 

Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this time.  I am trusting God that he will give us a baby...I hope he does.


  1. The picture at the top of your blog reminds me of what you probably look like when you think about this :). I know it is a scary though...and I know I was frustrated to feel like my body just didn't work the way it was "supposed" to. Know that God created us all...this may be His way of working in your life to produce a sweet baby. I'll be praying for you and Ricky! I don't know a lot about fertility medications, but if you want to know how to reach me :)

    I know it is scary, and all of the different possibilities will be scary as well. Just think of it as a learning experience, not that you have not tried everything you could. This is just another road to bringing that baby you so wanted closer to you and Ricky. Keeping the faith, and putting your trust in God and good things will happen for you.
