I can't believe how quickly and yet how slowly time is going by!
Joe and I went to the doctor today and the bloodwork came back perfect! The next and ALMOST final step is 2 more doctors visits to monitor both blood work and uterine lining growth, and then the egg transfer.
During the egg transfer, they will be putting a catheter in me and transferring one egg. The egg is fertilized and now reached a level of maturity ready for implantation! We have been given a date!
March 16th, 2017! We are so excited.
In the meantime, I will be on medication for 3 more weeks. A thyroid pill, protesterone patches and an additional supplement 3x a day, plus a prenatal.
If things go well, this will be the ONE and we will have our baby in December!
We can only wish for positive, good things and prepare mentally for this exciting event! We will keep everybody posted!
With the divorce rate at 50%, that means many blended marriages and "step" children to follow..Someone needs to voice this! It's tough! Nitty gritty! Hardcore and without exception of blame! This blog is to not just inform but solidify how difficult, awkward and how severe the power struggle can be as a "step-parent"
