What's Next?

Abruptly moving in with my in-laws caused us to question whether or not now was the best time to expand our family. In a way, it would be helpful having his mom around during the beginning part of pregnancy. But, at the same time, we don't know how long we'll be here and there's not enough space to bring a baby here.

I've talked before about how we decided to stop treatment for the time being. At first, I was very upset even though I knew that we were making the best decision. I know that my mother-in-law would prefer for us to be trying to avoid a pregnancy at this time, but I also know how difficult it is for me to conceive. The fact is that if the Metformin alone works to regulate my cycles, it can take 3-4 months. So, we're comfortable with our decision.

The best thing about this is that I do not stress any more about getting pregnant. Of course, I wonder when my cycle will decide to appear, but I'm happy to not have to go through all of the monitoring. It's not fun to get blood work and ultrasounds multiple times only to find out that you may or may not get pregnant.

So, we're just trying to enjoy life for now. We know that God has a little miracle for us and that we will get pregnant when it's the right time.
