Our next baby
While I was still pregnant DH and I had already decided that we wanted our children to be close together and that we would not wait too long between transfers so our next transfer would be sooner rather than later after nanner was born.We had decided a few months ago that we wanted to aim for an early fall transfer but that is tenative of course.So that is our plan. For those of you who I haven't shared this with on the phone already, now you know why I have been in such a hurry to lose weight.I want the old weight off before new weight comes on for a more comfortable, healthy pregnancy. I don't want to keep adding new weight and become so unhealthy that I cannot enjoy my children. So far the incentive of the next transfer is working as I have lost 26 pounds and am only 13 pounds from my prepregnancy weight.My goal weight however is my pre fertility med weight which is 32 pounds away. I do believe I can achieve it as I have lost 26 pounds in only about 2 1/2 months.I am almost half way there as of today!When we discussed the next transfer I decided that 2 goals needed to be met if we were to proceed and they were me getting my weight down ( my cholesterol was elevated for the first time in my entire life too) and also we wanted to wait and see if the temp job that DH has been working would hire him in(they have been very,very selective on who they have retained over the last few months).I am proud and excited to say that DH just called to to say that they gave him his hire in application/papers! While this is not his dream job or even close to what he was making before his layoff it is still a job with benefits and we are thankful to God above for it.It seems as though God is making everything come together for us once again.We are working on coming up with the money for the transfer and meds.I guess we could hope that the insurance that we get with this new job has some infertility coverage (doubtful since most don't cover infertility).We are planning on a couple yard sales with all the money being put into our "baby fund" we also save all our returnable soda can money and put that in there too.And of course we have been putting small amounts of money in there from DH's check as we can.I am hoping that God will help us achieve the goal we need to pay for the meds and the transfer as it seems as thought it is all starting to come together for the other two goals.As excited as I am about this next transfer I am also scared. I am scared it won't work, I am scared that we won't come up with the funds we need for the transfer and meds, I am scared that if it does work I may end up with complication like last time or worse.I guess these are all normal fears and I need to think positive that God will see me through like he did before.
