This explains the past 4 years and four months of my life. Thanks for sharing it, S. You are one of the ones who know it, too.

I know you're used to the sound of chirping crickets around here lately. Honestly, I don't have much to say these days. Don't worry, I'm not living in a hole underground somewhere or anything extra weird like that. When you aren't TTC (it's kinda difficult to create a baby when you have no eggs) then a fertility/infertility blog becomes a place where there isn't much to say! Add in a much-needed summer vacation, and our focus is elsewhere.
It's been hard - REALLY hard - and I'm still not completely through it all. It's just a weird place to be in these days after being hard-core focused on procreating for over four years. It's also difficult to be in a
holding pattern dead standstill while everyone around you (fertile & non-fertile alike) continues to get pregnant, have babies, and repeat the process more than once while we wait for just ONE. Just one tiny, little baby . . .
However, we are not finished in our quest for family. Currently looking into adoption and/or donor eggs, there are definite options out there to help us become more than just a Mr. & Mrs. with two dogs. I've been working through my grief and frustration in knowing that my DNA stops here. There will be more counseling once we makes some decisions about where to go from here. In one way, it's relieving. In another, it's scary as hell.
I'm used to scary as hell, so we'll keep moving forward. Don't be a stranger (i.e. say hi & let me know you were here!), and I'll be back to rambling away in no time!
