April is the month I dread all year long (well, since starting this journey). April 2017 is when my husband and I decided we were finally ready to start a family (one month after our 2 year wedding anniversary and two months after our 8 year dating anniversary). Once we made the decision, we were ready to get started right away. But here we are, 730+ days later, still waiting to start a family. Some days this journey is almost unbearable for me. And some days I don’t think about it much at all (I guess that’s called balance).

Cycle update: my cycle was supposed to start last week but it hasn’t. Assuming I’m not pregnant (let’s all laugh together), I will start progesterone again tomorrow. I hate the way the progesterone pills make me feel sometimes but I sleep soooooo good when I take them. The sleep makes all the other side effects worth it.

We are getting closer to our first IUI! Just waiting on my cycle to start so we can get the ball rolling! I will update more in a few days.

    We started TTC in October and 3 years later I lost the twins in October, then my grandma died exactly a week later. I will never be able to look at that month the same.

    April is the month we lost our son. I know how you feel. Hoping everything goes well with your cycle!

    Hope your IUI is successful! We have been doing IUI’s, also. I have my next pregnancy test this upcoming Friday.
