Life As Rachel: TTC Update

TTC Update

I have not given an update on our fertility/trying to conceive status in about a month so I figured today was as good as any. So just a tiny recap: We have been trying for a year to have a baby. I was on birth control for 9 years religiously (I was on seasonale). I am not having a normal cycle...sometimes I don't get them at all and I get to take Provera to make them show up. This has been going on since February. I went to the doctor a month or so ago and we both FINALLY decided it was time to start running test. 

So today Monday and today I went and had blood work done. I gave away to much of my blood that I would have preferred not to. I had to drink a nasty drink for a glucose test. Let me tell you, it does not taste like a orange soda. It is gross and nasty. I am anxious and nervous and ready for my results to come back in so I can know what is going on. Hopefully I get some results and answers that can help me on my journey to one day have a baby. 

I may be smiling in this photo but this drink is nasty. 
When we first started this journey, I thought it would be easy and quick. Boy was I proved wrong. I am still shocked, sad and upset that we do not have a child yet. I am really starting to get fed up but I know there is nothing I can do but be patient. One of the hardest things is seeing others with their babies. It is difficult to be around some people because of it. It is hard to be happy for my friends when they announce they are pregnant but I try to be. I don't want my mood to bring others down.

Who knows, maybe my next TTC update will be a happier one with some answers in it! Fingers crossed for us!
