Beginning Fertility Testing

So, I’m still not pregnant. My doctor told me I could call and get the process going after Christmas if I wasn’t pregnant at that point.

So I called today - the 28th. That is some restraint right there. I waited 2 whole days after Christmas. I’m really working on my patience. ;)

I have an appointment on January 2nd to get some blood work done. They will be testing for PCOS and some other stuff that I didn’t recognize and now don’t remember but will report back on after my appointment.

I’m feeling sad and hopeful; glad to be able to do something but nervous that I will find out that something is wrong.

I’ve always wanted to adopt from the time that I knew there were kids without parents, I was probably 7 or 8. But as I’ve gotten older I found that I also wanted to experience pregnancy and childbirth and to be connected to a child in a biological way too.

It won’t be the end of the world if something isn’t working right with my body but it will definitely be a different journey than what my husband and I have been planning on.

Here’s to hoping for the best and planning for the worst.
