No, I'm not giving up TTC. In fact, hubs and I are going to be bringing out the big guns starting very soon.
So far we haven't given up very much in the quest for a baby. I think part of the reason is that TTC has been hard on me from day one. Because I was off BCP for over 2 years by the time we started actively trying, I had a feeling we'd have problems conceiving; so TTC was never fun or exciting for me. It was depressing and discouraging well before I received my "infertile" diagnosis. To counteract that, hubs and I decided to try to integrate some fun into our lives over the past year. We planned parties, hung out with friends, went out to eat, took road trips, went to Dodger games, splurged on little things, etc.
But all good things must come to an end! We've decided that it's time to get serious about this babymaking business. We'll be seeing an RE soon, probably within the next two months, and we have to cut expenses to afford that. No more weekend getaways (after our anniversary of course), no more pricey seats at Dodger games, and, most heartbreaking to me - no more wine club memberships! I must sound like a total lush, but I seriously love wine, and I really love our (three) wine clubs. Unfortunately, they're our most expensive luxury and therefore will be the first things to get cut. Sigh... I will miss you my friends!
It's for the greater good, I know. I think I mentioned before that we'll be ending our TTC journey in a little less than two years if we don't conceive sooner, so now is the time to buckle down. It won't be fun, but hopefully it will be worth it.
As for today, AF is blessedly on her way out and BD time has commenced. I have an acu appointment later this morning, and game night with my sibs after work. Let's hope for a wonderful Tuesday for all of us :)
