It was the final week to 2 months to a baby! I can’t believe how quickly it went by.
We received Benton’s fertility test back and he came back totally clear. Knowing that I am at the root of our infertility troubles was actually really great to know. I had suspected it, but to actually know is empowering for sure.
When I went to the fertility specialist over a year ago after trying to conceive for a year and half, I was really shaken by the fact that they were calling me infertile (not sure what I expected…?!) I held off on going back to the fertility specialist, mostly because the experience rattled me, but also because I didn’t want to have to take synthetic hormones to fix my infertility. I have been worried about pumping artificial hormones into my body.
About a month and a half ago, I asked my family doctor to refer me to a different fertility specialist that I had found online. I hadn’t heard from his office until last week! It was actually great timing, because we had just received news about Benton’s results. I have an appointment scheduled with him in September.
At this point, I feel like we have given the natural route a good try. I am definitely at peace about where we’re at and I am ready to go the modern medicine route. I trust the doctor that I am going to see and I am looking forward to getting some more testing done to get to the bottom of the issue. I am still a bit freaked out about the synthetic hormones, but I am ready.
We also decided that I am not going to work at a 9-5 job anymore. With our business launch in September, I am feeling very much at peace about this new direction I am going. I LOVE working on the business and being able to set my own schedule with consultancy.
So, that’s the update going into the fall. I feel really positive and encouraged! It’s a bit scary, but I know that modern medicine can do some pretty crazy things to help people become pregnant. I’m ready to go down this new road!
