In Case You Were Wondering

For those who've been following my blog in hopes of seeing updates on our IVF situation, I really don't have anything for you at this moment. I have certainly been working on 'the big post,' the one that takes you through all we've done and been through in this. Some of it's funny, some is not...and some is pretty interesting.

I will say about IVF that, though I am grateful we have this opportunity, it is a really difficult process on not only me, but Casey as well. I've done a lot of traveling back and forth myself, most of the time in the same day (it's three hours one way), and many times leaving before sunrise. The emotional part is even more difficult. There are ups and downs, there is excitement and disappointment -- and on top of that my hormones are a little wacky. Let's just say it's a really good thing we knew we were in this 100%, because otherwise one or both of us might have given up after the first week!

If I am pregnant at the end of this process, that will be such a joyful thing, and I will try to share the news as soon as I think it's best and of course I'll post 'the big post.' If I'm not, I don't know yet what I'll do. I might take a break from blogging for a while or I might post something that very day and then take a break from blogging. I'm really trying to keep my thoughts from it ending up that way, though. I know the world won't end, but Casey and I will definitely need to go through some grieving, both on our own and with one another.

Right now, if there's anything I could ask of anyone who's reading, it would be for prayers in this process. Of course we're asking God to give us the outcome we'd like, but we're also asking that his comfort and peace be with us if that doesn't happen.
