Plan Z

Mere asked me to post this because you know she "doesn't put that stuff" on her blog.    Where are we on the baby front?  Right now.....taking a break.  Our life has been consumed with getting pregnant and it sucks.  So, we are taking a new approach.

No IVF, no injectable drugs, no big money, high stress stakes.  We are going to use clomid and do home inseminations with Mere.  If she gets pregnant, great.  If it take a year, then it takes a year.  I am not going to go down the route of injections, hormone patches, etc right now.  Will I carry a baby someday?  Maybe.  Will it be now? No.  Does this make me sad? Yes, but it is not in the cards right now.

We took the last 2 months off and will start back up next month.  We are not going to let this consume our lives anymore!!!!!

We have been thinking about you guys...It is so hard to not get sucked into the permanent "holding pattern" of TTC. I agree with the vacation comment- Tara and I often took "vacations" from TTC. It sounds like you guys have a good plan--will continue to keep your fam in our thoughts.

Also...please tell Layne one of her babies kept me up all night last night.
