Andrew and I had our follow up appointment with Dr. M last week to discuss our test results and our next step. I really wasn't sure how the appointment would go since all of our test results came back normal. We have unexplained infertility meaning he cannot see any medical reason why we have not been able to get pregnant. It is the best yet most frustrating result. I am so incredibly thankful that there is nothing major that is wrong with either one of us.
But where does that leave us?
We have been trying on our own to get pregnant for over three years now and the only results we have gotten are negative ones.
Dr. M believes that our next step should be IUI. You can read more about what all that entails here.
How do we feel about that next step?
Well it is certainly a big decision. One that we will not make lightly or without prayer.
We are open to the idea, but we just want to make sure that if we choose to go that route we are making the right decision at the right time.
I'm a little fearful of IUI simply because it already hurts each month when the answer is yet again "not yet". I can't imagine getting a negative result after going through something as big as IUI. I know people have done it and have come out on the other side stronger than ever, but right now I just can't imagine that for myself.
For now we are simply trusting God will give us the desire of our hearts in His perfect timing.
