"Officially" we have been trying to conceive a baby for over 3 years. Obviously we have not been successful. So, this holiday season we got the recommendation to begin an investigation into infertility.
In February we attended an infertility seminar which was required. We went in not knowing what to expect, there were about 7 other couples and a few ladies there on their own. A woman led us through a class which discussed main reasons for infertility, % of couples who overcome their infertility, a list of don't dos (smoke, drugs etc.) and the steps we would begin to find out if our infertility problem is treatable.
Then it was time to get poked and prodded for laboratory tests. We were able to look up a few results online things like Cyndi's blood glucose levels.
This Friday we meet with an infertility specialist to go over the test results and decide if there is any plan of action we can pursue at this time.
Please do not ask specifics of whom is "at fault". Neither of us is at fault. WE are in this together, it is us as a couple who cannot seem to conceive a baby.
We are asking for your support and prayers as we begin a difficult journey. We feel like we are grieving an invisible loss. The options given to us are costly, Cyndi's work only covers 50% and soon she will not even have that coverage. We cannot even explain how difficult it has been coping with the news that we may not be able to be the parents we have always wanted to be.
