Hello, everyone. Sorry for the delay in posting, I still have no internet at home and am currently using my Blackberry as a router. No, I will not argue the point as to why I am still using a Blackberry - I also have an Android and I prefer the Blackberry! No further discussion!
Anyway, I have been very busy with work and family stuff over the holidays. I finally received my Ovulation Predictor Kit from Amazon, and have started testing twice a day (every 12 hours). So far, I have had only negatives, even though this should be my "time of the month" according to my Fertility Friend app. I have also stopped taking my hormones for the first month of testing, to see if it makes any difference. I am still trying to locate a decently priced BBT thermometer, so if any of you know where I can get a decent one at a good price (under $20 CAN), please share! Some of my tests are lighter than others, but none so far are as dark or darker than the control line. Although, one was suspiciously close and I had to get my fiance C to come check it to be sure... Could have been a peak in my LH levels?
In other news, C and I have been discussing fertility, adoption and the wedding plans, plus finances and mortgages and all the other fun, jazzy stuff. I told him that I am going to have children. We can try up to 5 rounds of IVF (roughly coming to $150,000 CAN) before I am giving up and just going with adoption, because i am not running myself into the ground with debt any more than that. I also told him that if he is not willing to adopt and take that chance with me, then we are going to have to cancel our wedding plans as we cannot afford to get married only to have it fail because I want kids and he doesn't want to take a chance with my infertility. He is currently thinking all of this over and we are going to talk over the weekend, as I'm not getting a divorce later in life over treatments, financing and adopting. I just want to know now what we are planning on doing so we can get our financial goals together. Is that being cruel??
I have also been having a lot of worse back and neck pains lately. My scoliosis in my lower back is driving me crazy, and shooting right up my spine and into my shoulders. There isn't anything they can do aside from prescribe me medications and the X-Rays didn't find anything wrong aside from what was known previously, so I am stuck with the pain.
I am also back into selling Avon with C's help, so here is a link to the newest catalog from Campaign 2! Thanks for reading!
21 year old girl with MRKH. I am a college student, supervisor at Tim Hortons, writer and volunteer on the side. I love my animals, reading, and spending time with people closest to me! I am trying to come to terms with my syndrome. I hope to find the perfect way to start a family of our own.
