I can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by…It’s already May!!! And May is practically over. One good thing about this year flying by is that we are getting closer to having our next appointment to find out what our next step will be in this Baby Making Journey.
The last few months have been good for us. It was motivating having something to work towards. The Infertility Specialist placed us on special medications to get us “baby healthy ready,” and we have been so dedicated at staying on top of these medications, taking them faithfully.
One part of this time that has been a highlight for me is working together to get healthier. Hailame and I are eating better and exercising together regularly :)… at 5:00am 😦 but we’ve learned it’s the only time we can really dedicate to going to exercise, because when we both come home from work in the afternoon, neither of us wants to go to the gym, we just want to stay home.
So every morning at 4:30 am, my alarm goes off, and at 4:31 (why one minute after mine, I have no idea) Hailame’s alarm goes off… but he rarely hears it so I end of turning off both of our alarms.
I have to really work to wake Hailame up, he is the deepest sleeper, but the minute he is up, he is the biggest morning person in the world (and really chatty), compared to me where I will wake up, but that is all. I don’t want to talk, or interact with a lot of people.. give me about 30 minutes, then I may acknowledge your presence. Hailame has learned when he talks to me in the morning, he may or may not get a response, and if he does, it is short and to the point, and then back to silence for me. 🙂
But having Hailame and I go to the gym together has been perfect because I don’t think I would make it over there if I didn’t have his perky energy getting us out the door in the morning!
We are eager and ready to find out what our next step will be in this journey. We were told three months ago that the usual process is first trying to get pregnant on our own, using clomid. If that doesn’t work for us, we will do an IUI, then have IVF as our final option.
I’m praying that we are able to get pregnant on our own, obviously because that would save money and time, however at this point, I am willing to do anything!
