I know I haven't bee writing much lately. I think it is hard to wrote on an IF blog when you are not currently cycling, or even have the hope of doing so in the next few months. Some of you ladies are so good about continuing on even when you are between cycles. I wish I could be more that way.

So what has been going on lately? Well DH had a very promising interview for a great position yesterday. Only problem is it's about 85 miles north of our home. He has made the long commute before and would do it again if he is awarded this position. Which means long hours away from home and me worrying about him being killed in a horrific car accident daily. Eventually, if all went well, we may even relocate to the new city. This brings lots of mixed emotions for me. I would be that much farther from my family and would have to start over with our church and friends and such. Not to mention possibly finding a new job. (But if things go well I will only have to get something part time.) Plus not to mention the house. Do we try to sell and get out what we have in, or do we rent and hope it isn't destroyed by renters. I know, this is crazy since an offer has yet to come our way, but I am a planner and I like to be prepared for things like this.

My job is getting better. Actually that isn't true, my attitude towards my job is getting better. I have come to realize I am blessed to have a job, and I really enjoy the people I work with. My two bosses are getting less demanding, and I am learning how to better handle when they are short with me.

Still no new developments on the IF front. But if above mentioned job does happen it will put us 85+ miles closer to the clinic we would like to use for IVF #2. So there's a bonus. My company has new insurance this year and it claims they cover 50% of an IF cycle up to $15k. No you ladies know the routine with insurance, usually they say that they will cover anything but IVF, but since it is up to $15k it seems weird that they would just mean IUI. I need to call the new clinic we are thinking about using and ask them to verify our benefits. If they do cover 50% of IVF we could be cycling sooner.

Thank you for continuing to comment even though I am kind of a bum. I still read all your posts, I have just not been commenting as much lately. It is so fun to see so many of the ladies I began this journey with transitioning into motherhood. It gives me hope to fight another day.


  1. Good luck with the new job possibility!

  2. Hey! I have been following your blog for a couple years now. I am struggling through infertility as well. My husband and I are trying to save for IVF and we have begun a campaign to try and help us raise the last bit of money. I was wondering if you would mind helping us get the word out. If you could post our link I would be so grateful!
