Excellent! So, let’s break all the Arizona heat records dating back to the 1800's the ONE summer I’m pregnant. Fantastic! UGH!!!
Also, I would like to say that I HATE iron supplements!!! That and the prenatal vitamins are just a nasty mix for my poor "anemiac" system! I've been iron deficient my whole life, but apparently it's become more of an issue lately because of the pregnancy. I truly can't bring myself to eat any larger quantities of spinach and red meat, BUT on the bright side, thank goodness all the IVF treatment stuff is behind us---that makes me extremely grateful for any of my super minor pregnancy issues!
We were talking the other night about secondary infertility and how/when we will continue to grow our family. Unless we have medical coverage to help offset some of the costs associated with IVF/ICSI, it's very likely that we'll never be able to afford having another biological child. That makes every day an issue of trust. Do we trust Him or are we trusting ourselves. I hope and pray that every day we're choosing the first. Even thought it's incredibly difficult and it feels like it'll never end, there is always hope! It's comforting to know that God will provide everything we need (including the children we long for) in His time. AND, a friend of mine from highschool ended up going to the Czech Republic for IVF--I guess it's quite a bit cheaper to seek treatments in Europe. Wow, kind of a neat "vacation/traveling" alternative...never would've thought of doing something like that
