New year, new me? Or new year, same (infertile) me? This is my first blog post of 2019 so i thought that would be an appropriate way to start it. I have never been so happy to say goodbye to a year as I was 2018. 2018 was a long hard year for me. 2018 brought me: a PCOS and infertility diagnosis, more tests, pills, bloodwork, and tears than I can count, the one year mark of our TTC journey, and assistance from a fertility clinic.
As excited as I am for 2019 to be here, I have a feeling this might our hardest year yet. You see, the fertility clinic has already told me that they only let you pursue “timed intercourse” for about 6 cycles before they recommend you move on to more advanced measures. We have already had one completed cycle (October 2018) which leaves us with about 5 more attempts. That means this year will be the year we will have to make some big decisions on how we want to proceed (assuming we don’t conceive). Wish us luck! 💕
