I realized after I wrote it that the last post probably scared the crap out of some of you who came over here from ICLW. Sorry about that. So here is a real "about me" post to welcome anyone who is new to my blog.
I'm Katie (24) and my hubby is Joey (32). We've been married since May 2008 and we've been trying to conceive our first child ever since. I'll spare you all of the boring details, but 20+ vials of blood, one sperm analysis, one HSG, two GYNs, two REs, two IUIs, 10+ ultrasounds, and over $2,000 later, we may finally have a diagnosis . . . or four:
Me: endometriosis and annovulation
Joey: low sperm count and abnormal sperm morphology
Joey goes in for his repeat SA next Tuesday, and I go in for a LAP next month. I'm not sure what lies ahead of that, but I've learned that you can never predict which way the IF road will turn next. So I try my best to take things one day at a time.
Outside of TTC, we are pretty boring people. I work as an editor for an educational publisher and Joey works as a member service representative at a bank, in addition to taking night classes to become a teacher. We live in sunny (though not at the moment) Central Florida. We are in the process of buying our first house, so I've been writing a lot about that lately. We actually just found out yesterday that our offer was accepted. If all goes well, we close at the beginning of March.
That is pretty much it. I can't think of anything else creative to write about myself, so I'm willing to answer any crazy questions you have about me/my life. So leave a comment and ask a question. :)
