alllast visit: yesterdaymember since: Oct 23rd 2011about me:
My name is Christy. My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years.We live in a very small town in the middle of nowhere NE. It is a beautiful place to live and the people are nice. I have endometriosis and we have been trying to concieve since we got married. I have been through 9 months of fertility treatments plus 2 surgeries and 5 IUI's. I am a music teacher and love kids! My husband has a great job and loves to fish and work on cars. We are very happy except that we sometimes feel like we're missing something. When you can't have a baby it feels like you've already lost it like you had a child and they died. Our next option is IVF. We may try it this summer it next depending on when we have the money. We kinda wanna pay off our credit card debts first.
After our last IUI cycle in Jan 2011 we decided to adopt and I made a couple posts on BG about looking for a baby to adopt. People were not very nice to me but I did not care. The while reason I joined BG was to find a birth mother. And that's exactly what I did! Jan 2011 I met a BM on here who posted that she was looking for someone to adopt her baby. We started emailing, chatting in Fb, and then texting. We became instant friends and a week after talking to her DH and I drive 18 hrs to meet her and her husband and almost 2 yr old twin boys. They were 19 and not ready to have another kid. We both knew that this was a plan orchestrated by God bc it could not have been any more perfect!
Kalyn Marie was born on May 15th 2012 at 35 1/2 weeks. She weighed 4 lbs 14 oz and was 17 3/4" long. We got there 15 hrs after she was born. DH was working 6 hrs away from home in the opposite direction. So I had to wait for him to get home then we picked up my mom and DH drove all night long. I could not sleep a wink I was so excited! We got our own room at the hospital bc I had induced lactation and was bf Kalyn. DH flew back home to go back to work after she was released from the hospital at 3 days. My mom and I had to stay in the state in hotel rooms and 1 night in the children's hospital for 10 days! It was exhausting sleeping in a hotel room with a preemie! We are now foster parents too and take in teenage girls, one at a time though!

I go in today at 9:45 to see the dr. My re isn't in so I have to see someone else. It was suppose to be my pt test apt, but I guess it will be another ultrasound and med discussion, since AF arrived Saturday. I am such a emotional wreck right now. Dh's job may start striking starting in April, so that means no insurance and no fertility coverage. So it looks like his cycle maybe our last to conceive. It's really hard to except right now that I may never be Able to have anymore children. Each month that goes by I get even more depressed. I guess I'm going to eventually have to let go and grieve like a death and go on. I don't want to do that, but it looks like I will have no choice pretty soon. I'm hoping I can do at least 2 more iui's before he goes on strike, but it looks like probably only one
