Bad Blogger- Road to Parenthood

I'm such a bad blogger!  I somehow always manage to forget to post here. =/

Last month was rough.  The tornadoes caused a lot of destruction in our state.  Aunt Penny's house is destroyed; nothing remains.  She's still at the hospital in ICU.  I saw her last Wednesday and she was starting to look better.  Renovations are moving right along with Gran and PawPaw's house.  =)  They're staying in an apartment in Hueytown until their house is livable again.  It's going to be strange not going to visit them at their house this week. 

Brandon and I saw a Reproductive Endocrinologist last Wednesday.  We're being monitored and plan to start IUI with my next cycle.  We're extremely excited and the RE gave us a 90% pregnancy success rate.  I haven't told that many people about it.  Most of my family knows, along with Brian and Sheri.  My coworkers know, but I spend more time with them than anybody so I couldn't keep it from them.  I'm excited about what the future holds for Brandon and I as parents.  It seems like it's all in reach.

The only downfall about seeing the RE is that insurance covers NOTHING fertility related.  I'm praying that we don't deplete our savings with all the testing that is scheduled.  Also, I'm not looking forward to one of the tests in particular-the HSG.  It's a special x-ray of the fallopian tubes and uterus.  They gave me a nice Rx for anxiety meds to endure that one.  I'm going to try to document and write about every test/procedure that occurs during our road to parenthood.  =) 


  1. I had the HSG today. It wasn't TOO bad, but it sucked all the same! I wrote about it at my blog. You should check it out.

    Good luck!

  2. I can give you Martha Ivey's info to start acupuncture...? That's a more natural and much cheaper alternative :) IMO

  3. I'm not so much the problem, Liz. Brandon's counts are BAD--they said it would be a miracle if we conceived on our own. I've thought about calling and talking to you about it, but I've been busy and had a hard time talking about it some days.
    Because of my age it should go smoothly. It just seems like I have to "do more work" to get the ball rolling!! =)


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
