New Cycle...This is It

Today is CD1.

I went ahead and called scheduling to make my baseline appointment.  My appointment is scheduled for 7am on Monday.  To say that I'm excited is an understatement!

In previous posts, I've mentioned my friend, Kayla.  She found my blog after reading one of my posts on Fertility Friend.  (If you're part of the IF community, FF is GREAT for helping you keep track of your cycles.)  She reached out and emailed me in November.  She too had experienced the ups and downs that Infertility throws at you.  We spent some time emailing and sending each other Facebook messages.  Eventually we started texting and talking to one another.  I sure hope she has unlimited texting, because I know that I've messaged her like crazy on my bad days.  After talking, we even realized that we had went to the same high school, but we were a few grades apart.  We first met when I was in recovery from my surgery in February.  That's not how I planned for us to finally meet, but she knew that I was scared.  I didn't even have to ask her to come and visit me, she knew without me asking. Our husbands have met, although we've only been out once.  (We'll make that happen again soon!)

Kayla's always there to listen and comfort me in my weakest moments.  It's so strange how God brought us together.  She's even the reason why I chose Dr. Allemand.  She told me everything about him before my first appointment.

She is now pregnant and due in November.   This week at her ultrasound, she measured 9w6d.  Even though I haven't voiced this to her yet, I am certain that she is pregnant with a daughter.  Sometimes I just have feelings about these things.  ;-)  I just wanted to share her good news, because it has given me a renewed Hope about Brandon and I having a child.

God puts people in our lives for a reason.  He has also given me Sheri, the greatest sis-in-law anyone could ask for.  She has held my hand through this entire process.  She too went through a lot to have our nephew. I would love to talk more about Sheri's experience, but I want to talk to her and get her permission first.  I wouldn't have made it as far as I have today without the help of these two women.
