I can't begin to express how thankful Allen and I are for recent developments in our journey with infertility. A good friend of ours put together a "GoFundMe" page last week, in our honor to raise money for IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) (http://www.gofundme.com/babyshuput). We can't express how extremely grateful we are, and have no words for all the generous donations we've received thus far. It's amazing the amount of support we've received, all the "likes" and shares of the page we are equally thankful for that have occurred on Facebook. The outpour of support and positive comments and emails have us honestly lost for words. It's an overwhelming feeling to have so much love and support surrounding us. We're truly blessed to have such wonderful people in our life.
Moving forward this is our current plan: On thursday the 10th we have another blood test that will hopefully have an outcome of an HCG level (the pregnancy hormone) down to zero in my blood. Once that's at zero I'm technically no longer pregnant after the miscarriage we've suffered. We will then wait for a period cycle on my own to start, and if that doesn't occur within 30-40 days then we will take a medication to bring on a period cycle. I will then go onto birth control for a month (2nd cycle), the next cycle (3rd cycle) we will begin IVF medication to start an IVF cycle. We are very excited yet nervous to begin this next step, but we have a lot of cheerleaders in our corner and that help us remain positive. I'll continue to update on where the process is.....it's a lot to explain let alone understand, but I certainly hope that we have people following and enjoying our story.
Thank you again everyone!

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.
