We have a semi-set timeframe!!!!!!!!!
As you can see, we are a tad excited. Yesterday the clinic called and the nurse wanted to set a tentative start timeframe. Of course I was ecstatic and realized that this long wait shall soon pass.
We have to wait for a few tests and also for the genetic test, but I am hoping to start my meds the beginning of August! Which would mean, we would do implantation the 3rd or 4th week of August.
Can I get a BOOYAH?
An end is in sight!
I could hardly contain myself when I got off the phone with the nurse because I feel like this process is so real again. Not that we have lost any passion for it (in fact, our passion and desire to continue has only grown), but it’s nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Because of where both Brenda and I are in our life stages (me still on birth control and Brenda being older), we have a LOT of flexibility as to when we can start. Which on their end, is REALLY nice. For us, I’m like “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it” but we are realizing that this will be a little easier to schedule everything because of our situations. Obviously when you involve two people in the process, it can make it way more complicated, but we are blessed in the sense that that has not been the case.
So after I had gotten back from my night event, I HAD to call Brenda! We ended up talking for quite some time about the whole process and just how thrilled we are that in 3 months, we could be in a completely different situation! Our laughter and excitement could probably be heard across the street (even though we were on the phone), but there is just so much JOY in this process still.
And that glory goes to God. That He continues to give us reasons to be excited, to trust Him, and despite what happens, that He will always remain faithful. We talk about the fact that it may not work, but we truly believe then, that He has an even greater plan. So hard to imagine what could be greater than this, but our God is bigger than we can even fathom. This whole gestational carrier situation is WAY BIGGER than I could ever imagine. Dan and I are so thankful everyday that God thinks way bigger than we do!
So August, here we come!
