This is my journey through the forest of infertility as I attempt to become a mom as the third wheel.

I fully understand that infertile women have a particular level of insanity that is socially accepted among other infertiles. Yet, I wonder if I've gone too far. I dropped off our semen sample this morning at 7:15 a.m. at a lab I've never used before. I've been thinking about our little guys all day and praying they are swimming strongly. I couldn't help but call the lab on my way home from work to see how my little guys are doing. They couldn't tell me anything specific, but they were so kind to not yell at me for being a paranoid infertile woman. I am so grateful for her kindness. The great news is she thinks our analysis should be complete by Friday and we can pick up the results. So, we should have our results before we leave for vacation on Saturday and we don't have to wait for our doctor to read them...we can just show up at the lab at they will give us a copy of the results! Yay for us!
Hysterectomy. Oopherectomy. We tried surrogacy. Failed. Sort-of tried adoption and it sort-of failed. Matched with a surrogate for a year to find out insurance won't cover the pregnancy. Not sure what's next...
