I did some scrapping this weekend that I'm excited about but I can't show you yet because they are gifts and I'm afraid the recipient might look at my blog! So I'll have to show you later this week :)
So instead I will share some news with you!
Yesterday was Dan's 40th birthday! As has been the case for the past 3 of his birthdays, he had to work the midnight shift so there really wasn't too much celebrating that could be done. I did however go to his office at midnight with a yummy DQ icecream cake and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Later that evening after he had gotten some sleep he and I made his latest favorite dinner, New York Strip Steaks with Brandied Mushroom sauce. YUM!
In other news, as many of you know Dan and I have been longing for children for quite some time. We have been under the care of a fertility specialist and have gone through quite an ordeal thus far in terms of various treatments and procedures. At this point it seems that our infertility is unexplained. Having exhausted all less involved treatments, we decided to move forward with In Vitro Fertilization.
Our IVF cycle actually began 3 weeks ago with oral medication, but today is a big milestone because now I start hormone injections. Lucky Dan gets to give me from 1 to 3 various hormone shots every day which from what I understand could quite possibly make me not the easiest person to be around as well as cause a rather sore behind. Not excited about that part of this! The egg retrieval will take place sometime during the second week of June, and if we end up with a viable embryo it will be transferred some days later.
In any case this is quite the adventure with all of the out-of-state traveling, the physical unpleasantries, the emotional ups and downs, and the expenses, so I humbly request that you please keep us in your thoughts in the hope that we are one of the lucky few that succeed with the IVF. Thanks so much :)
