I'm proud of us.
We finally got the ball rolling.
While today was mostly just a general consult, the doctor was very nice and very positive. We met with the RN who got background info, family history, etc. Then she left us alone in the office with a large pamphlet about infertility. Seeing as Chris and I have a combined mental age of 10, we had a few good nervous laughs waiting for the doctor. When he came in, he explained the basic steps for us to go through to find out more about why we still don't have a little one after two years of trying. He talked to us for a little while and then left us alone in the office again while we waited for the rn to come back in for more talking. We were laughing about silly stuff when the rn came back in. Her comment went something like this...
"wow, you guys sound like you're having a good time. We could even hear you out there. I never knew infertility could be so much fun!"
Haha. We explained that we have an uncanny ability to make any situation fun together and that's partially why we're so dang awesome... :)
Anyway, I went down and had some blood work done. Next step involves Chris, then I'll go back for more blood work on FRIDAY THE 13th -- dun dun dunnnnnn -- and then an uncomfortable looking procedure at the end of March. Between those three tests, hopefully we'll get more information and find a way to make a baby!
I'm optimistic, but trying not to be too optimistic so as not to be too disappointed.
That's just how I roll.
After the doctor, we hung out at the bookstore, then to Noodles for some delicious lunch. Our original plan of climbing this lovely day-off-afternoon was thwarted by my lingering flu symptoms, so instead I took a nap while Chris suffers on the trainer (fair warning to anyone racing against him this year -- he's got some serious dedication flowing).
A good Friday on the books, now on to a weekend of healing and hopefully some fun!
