Starting Over

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Mine was really great.  We spent a week in AZ with my family and it was so much fun to hang out with everyone!  I was having such a great time that I didn't even have time to be sad about the fact that it's been two years now since our diagnosis.  Crazy how much has changed in those two years.

I've recently been contemplating getting a second opinion.  I realize some people might think it's crazy that I would wait two years to do this, but it's taken me that long to come to terms with my situation.  The thought of going to a different doctor to do more tests and possibly get the same news is absolutely terrifying.  I literally can't put into words how much stress I feel about starting any kind of infertility treatment.  It's so scary. But it's been weighing on me recently and I finally feel like the time is right to go see a different doctor.

When we moved to Durango I knew we wanted to take time off from all of this.  We just wanted to enjoy our new lives here and basically forget about the fact that we can't have babies.  That worked for a little while, but I want children and I can't ignore that desire for long.  At my first support group meeting here I met a woman who works for the two RE's in town.  At my second meeting I met two women who go to those doctors.  They all spoke so highly of them and it really made me want to go see them.  This morning I called and made an appointment.  I have my first consultation with Durango Reproductive on Friday December 14th!

I feel good about it.  I'm kind of excited, in a weird way.  I sort of feel like we're starting over, but with a lot more information.  I will keep you all posted on how it goes.

Stay tuned!
