Welcome! If you want to know more about our TTC Journey, click here! If you want to read about our adoption journey, check out the right side of the blog! And yes, we are in the midst of both.

We have ___ days until....
  • 2, starting E.strace
  • 3, DH & I both are taking personal days
  • 3-4, DH & I get-a-way weekend
  • 16, CD 15 u/s to check lining, start PIO & M.edrol, last L.upron
  • 21, ET
  • 28, Baby Basics class (we were going to take one offered this Thursday, but have changed since this one is geared towards adoptive parents and we were told that we could be put on the waitlist without having this class complete)
  • 30, BETA
  • 42, summer
Those are just some of the dates that I am looking forward to in the coming weeks. I just got off of the phone with our socialworker, she needed one last piece of information and then she would ready to turn in our homestudy to the agency's director for approval. We should be hearing something soon! Our profile is almost there. I haven't been working on it like I should. I need to do some more editting and add final touches. We are still hopeful that we will be on the waitlist by the end of April!

Hello! Happy ICLW. I like your days until....a way of looking forward to the steps that you need to take. Each hurdle passed is an accomplishment. Enjoy your weekend getaway!

Wow! I remember going through our adoption and the stress of finishing the homestudy and preparing our profile I can't imagine doing FET along with it! I'm impressed! Best wishes on both of your journeys! :)

Amazing that you're pursuing treatments and adoption at the same time! My husband and I just decided to adopt last week, so we're still in the "this is all new/exciting/overwhelming" stage. Hope you don't mind if I add you to my blogroll as another adoption blog to follow - I'm gathering a ton of resources :)
Happy ICLW!

Sounds like you have some busy times ahead. What type of adoption are you trying for? I'm curious as we are beginning the adoption process ourselves.

That's a great list of things you're looking forward too. I hope you ARE on the wait list by the end of this month! Fingers crossed!

Hi! I like to countdown stuff, too. Right now, I'm counting the days left in the school year (25), the days until our cruise leaves (43), and I'm ALWAYS counting my cycle days (so far, this go around, 8). I wish you the best with both ventures!

ICLW - Forgive me if you've been asked before but what if you get pregnant and then also get picked for adoption? Double blessings? Ohmigosh, got to hand it to you - I found IVF enough of a emotional rollercoaster without adoption homestudies!

Hi Rachel, I'm just a bit ahead of you on the FET and way behind on the adoption, but thought I'd stop by to cheer you on and to leave you a virtual hug!
