During our marriage ceremony, we promised to love each other through sickness and in health. I fully expected this promise to come to fruition a lot later in our partnership. You know, like when we’re old and senile.
But Adam is fulfilling his promise a lot earlier.
I know he is awesome, I just didn’t realize how awesome he is. Seriously. Next time you see that tall drink of water, feel free to give him a hug. Or a beer.
Tonight we began our journey to meet Baby Robb by means of IVF. We initially began this journey two years ago this March and we fully anticipated to be prescribed a magic medication and then, poof! Our baby would be here. But, for some reason or another, God has placed us on the journey of a lifetime. We have done the pills, the shots, and four IUIs. During this time we seriously thought we would never, ever be in the place we are now. We’ve been pregnant twice. They can’t find anything “wrong” with either one of us.
But. Here we are.
Eagerly awaiting the day we’ll be able to hold our baby in our arms and share him or her with you.
Above I mentioned we began our journey of IVF tonight. What was meant by that sentence is that Adam began administering shots to prepare my body for the IVF process that will happen in the next few weeks.
About two weeks ago, a box was shipped to the house with most of the shots and medication we will need.
And in case you’re wondering, that is an egg casserole and adult beverages. After these shots, those beers won’t be there if you catch my drift. 😉 And hopefully the egg casserole will be gone. Because that would be gross.
During the next three weeks of this journey, our time will consist of:
And prayers. Lots of ’em.
And, well, you’re smart, you can figure out the rest.
I didn’t want to fill this post with a lot of details you didn’t want to know about or that would make you uncomfortable so I’ll leave you with this:
If you want to know, please feel free to ask Adam or I. We know people want to know how to help if they can and we are so thankful for that.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Jill and Adam
