I've recently started a "30 before 30" list. Getting a tattoo is on that list.

I was browsing Pinterest and I found the perfect tattoo that would have a lot of meaning to me.

Now, I'm not one who has jumped on the anchor bandwagon, but I really do love this tattoo. I would/will probably get it with teal in it since that is the color for PCOS awareness.

I was talking with my Pop Pop about my journey in TTC, and he asked me if I would consider adopting. Lately, I've been thinking about other options if I can't get pregnant. But I think that has led me to more of a "giving up" mentality. I really don't want to give up.

I was talking with a friend at work who knows my situation. I told her that I was going to a fertility specialist. She mentioned who she goes to and apparently it's a small world here because she goes to the same practice that I'll be going to. It was a relief to hear that they are a great practice to go to.

I'm starting to get nervous as I'm about a month away from going to the fertility specialist. I'm praying for a sense of peace and encouragement as we move forward in our journey.

TTC Update

I found out this past weekend that my OB left the practice and didn't leave any information. 


I just finished another round of meds, which didn't work, and I need a break. I was going to call my OB for a recommendation to a fertility specialist, but I guess that's not going to happen!

So, I decided to make an appointment with my Endo doctor. She told me before that she would recommend me to a fertility specialist. I went today, and she seemed pretty confident that now is the right time. 

So, off I go to the fertility specialist at the end of June. I just hope there are some things we can do that won't be extremely expensive. I will be heart broken if it comes to having to pay a great amount of money we can't afford. 

It's time to pray for guidance, a sense of calmness, and understanding.
