Holy Cow! We might be ready!!!


As most of us know finances play such a huge part in an infertile's baby making decisions. It has been our biggest obstacle through the years. It was an amazing act of God that allowed us to do our first FET that gave us Maddie. We have been wanting to try again but financial issues have stopped us in our tracks. A few months ago I thought that maybe we would be ready soon so I started looking for a new clinic with an ED program but after some unexpected medical bills I stopped looking. I felt that it just wasn't the right time. Fast forward to last month.

On December 29th my MIL passed away. Though it was expected it was still difficult. She was 80 years old and had dementia and Alzheimer's. She was one the greatest Christians I have ever known. But in her passing is the possibility of trying for another child. My hubby is one of 5 siblings and their mother's house is to be sold and the proceeds split between them. We heard tonight that one of his brothers is wanting to buy the house and is trying to get a loan. The amount that we receive will not be a whole lot but enough for us to try embryo donation again. I knew that her house would be put on the market soon and that we would receive money after it sold, but it never occurred to me that it could happen so soon! When my hubby told me that the house may sell soon his first thought was to try for another baby. I love that man!!

This is all tentative at this point and honestly I am okay with that. I want it to happen in His timing. Though I will admit that if it happens soon I will be over the moon happy!! So now I need to start researching again. There is no clinic near me with an ED program so we have to start over and most likely travel. Unless someone has some they want to ship to me! ;-) There are a few that I have found that look promising. One is just minutes from hubby's family and that would be great as we can stay with them during the FET. AHHHHHH!!!! I am starting to get excited!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!


  1. Yay!!! I'm so sorry about your MIL, but I'm so glad that you may get to try again soon!

  2. Wow that is much sooner, good luck! I called many clinics it seems they all have at least 1 year wait most the time more. Are you going to use MW or do you know how you are going to go about it? Must be exciting :)

  3. Yay! So excited for you! And slightly jealous ;) Btw, tagged you on my blog today if you need some distraction.

  4. Kelly your profile does not have a link to your blog. Can you post a link for me??
