I'm extremely happy to report that today is my "Day 1" of my cycle since the miscarriage. Tomorrow I have scheduled blood and ultrasound, and if all are okay (which we will know late tomorrow afternoon), then our IVF cycle will officially begin with taking birth control - ironic I know, but the first requirement. So in approximately 4 weeks, the real magic will happen when my next cycle "day 1" begins by taking IVF stimulation medication. From there, things will happen extremely quickly. This is the biggest step we've taken thus far over all the years in fertility, and we're very excited. We can only remain positive about everything new that will happen to us in the next few weeks.
We again cannot thank everyone enough for all of the love we've received over the last few months. We've had an outpour of so much support on so many different levels, it's quite humbling. I can't wait to keep everyone updated on the next chapter of our journey. XO
Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
