Thanks and No Update

Thank you for the kind words about Sunny. She was great.
It's been weird to reconnect with so many college friends via facebook because of her death. It's neat to see some names and faces I haven't heard from in so many years (okay, 10). People keep adding pictures of her and it's wonderful. What a trip.

Well, for baby making, I really don't have much of an update. I would like to have a baby. Sooner preferably rather than later, but right now things aren't looking so hot.
My origonal plan was to not do any IUI's and then in June go straight to the IVF big guns (mostly because all of this IF treatment is 100% out of pocket). We obviously changed our minds and did and IUI in January (BFN). Now this month, the dates that I would be ovulating and checked were this coming weekend, but with Valentines day and some extra stuff at work, I just knew I wouldn't be able to get away, so we've decided to skip this month. Now next month, it will be back to the DR for an IUI again.
Whether or not we do IVF in June will really depend on whether or not my husband and I get our jobs back for next year. We're both teachers and in California, that is not a good place to be. So things aren't looking great, but I'm holding out hope. God gave us these jobs, so I really believe this is where we're supposed to be. But if we don't have jobs for the fall than I really don't see how we can spend 16,000 dollars out of our savings if we may have to be paying the mortgage out of that. I certainly don't plan on putting off IVF forever, but I do think it will be the IUI trails for us again. So as soon as I get AF this month (assuming of course there is another BFN) we'll be heading towards IUI in March.
Bring on the Zygote! (the new 'knocked up '09' slogan).

I try to remind myself that things will work out as they're supposed to - it's getting harder and harder to believe, but what choice do I have? :)

Praying for no job disruption for you all - damn this economy!

Thinking of you..

It really stinks for those of us who do not have any IF coverage...grrrrr! Fellow educator here & hoping the job situation works out for you both. We're facing budget cuts but luckily not to the point of losing personnel. On a positive note, here's to hope for a Valentine gift...BFP:]

I'm so sorry to hear about the tragic loss of your friend, Courtney. Thinking of you (your IUI/IVF decision and job situation) and sending-up prayers for Sunny's family and friends. *hugs*
