I walk into the waiting room and look around. So many faces, all there for the same reason. We are all the same person, yet we have many different circumstances. I feel the tug at my emotions when I see someone sitting with a child, or when I look at the pictures on the wall with babies. It is possible, things do work out. But still many of us are just waiting, patiently of course. So much is unknown. How will we juggle our appointments and our job? How many injections will I need? Will I get pregnant?
Today was another hurdle, I went to see Dr. Nani for a check in to see what our next step would be. It's an emotional process.... filled with ups and downs. It is not always easy to see that light at the end of the tunnel. Amazingly, everytime I am at the Fertility Centers of Illinois, to see Dr. Nani, her staff and the doctor are so positive. They always have a smile on their face and are making sure you have all your questions answered.
We set up the new game plan. I am hopeful for the outcome. I was presented with a list of medications I will need to do during my cycle, more drugs than I have ever had to take in my life. I have no idea why I need them, what they do or how much they will cost.
Since I have begun sharing my experiences of infertility, I have been blessed to meet such great people. There are also many other blogs which people are sharing their experinces on. One you should check out is: http://thehopefuljourney.blogspot.com/.
