I have had a good feeling the past few weeks about the path we are headed with becoming parents. It just seems as if everything I've been waiting for is finally falling into place.
I had my second infusion for my colitis this week and I have to admit that I feel marvelous. I wasn't really feeling bad before, but something about this new medication is just reassuring me that it's working. I will have one more treatment in four weeks before my gastrointerologist performs another colonoscopy. I am praying that the results from this next colonoscopy will show COMPLETE healing of my colon.
Our home study renewal is going right as planned. We have just one more piece of information that we need to submit to have it completely renewed. I also contacted a local adoption agency and added our name to their next orientation for potentional adoptive parents. Although we had our home study for an entire year, we never made the next step to pursue adoption. But we have finally made it this go around.
My endocrinologist recommended that before I try another fertility treatment that I should go on a low carb diet and lay off of all the exercising. He has done several studies on diet and exercise and how they affect (or effect, I never know the difference) fertility. So for the past week, I have been going low carb and doing mild exercises. It was hard the first few days, but now I'm in a routine and I feel really good.
I think all of these pieces are finally fitting into the puzzle that I have been dreaming about it. And it's such a good feeling.
