So I think we decided how were are going to approach our next cycle! I am so excited! 🙂 We had a wonderfully gracious friend and her husband offer to donate sperm should we need it! Isn’t that just amazing? I’m really blown away…God is so good!
The plan is: try on our own until we are ready to begin a cycle. Use Barry’s sperm and our donor’s with a full IVF cycle. Dr. H said he would stimulate me more aggressively to get more eggs, so we will have more chances. Dr. H can then divide up the eggs to be fertilized with our donor and with Barry, test and monitor both. This way we don’t have to “give up” on our own genetics but still have a backup should our embryos not make it.
I think our plan could work! Of course, I need to run it by our donor and doctor, but this is something Barry and I are excited about. He laughed at how excited I got and said that it’s not that he doesn’t care about the situation, just that he doesn’t care how he gets to be a father. 🙂 So blessed!!
In fact, I also have to add to this entry that I am so in love. ❤ I spent a whole weekend just soaking up all the wonderful things that Barry does and says for me…and embraced our new little family. Things have changed so much and we have grown so much together. My love is so much more renewed for Barry and our son is bringing us together every day.
And my son! Gosh! I am IN LOVE with this little wiggly guy!
I wanted to give a special shout out to my Meme! She turned 70 this past weekend!! 🙂 Feeling very lucky to have her!
I guess that's it right now- I hope everyone has an awesome week!
