A Long Awaited Update

I had thought that I would be able to write an update on Wednesday this week with all sorts of good news. The sellers' response to our repair requests was due on Tuesday, and my mid cycle u/s was Wednesday morning.

But the news never came about the house. We waited. And waited. And waited some more. And FINALLY this morning, I received the official response. So now, I am making my big happy update:

American Foursquare built in 1919
WE'RE BUYING A HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sellers agreed to most of our repair requests - the biggest being a new roof. I am over the moon excited about this! And on top of that, they are making an effort to stick with the original closing date of Oct. 20th! I may be living in my new house by Halloween!!

My u/s on Wednesday went really well too. I've got a 17mm and two 13mm all on the same side. Dr. B advised to use OPKs every day through Saturday. If I surge before Saturday, I need to trigger that same day. If no surge by Saturday, trigger then.

This is my 3rd cycle post-surgery. And my 3rd cycle in which the drugs are working and getting me to ovulate. If we aren't pregnant this month, Dr. B wants us to move to IUI. We did one, back in March - my first cycle with Dr. B. The BFN after that cycle was pretty devastating. Knowing how much an IUI ratchets up the emotional involvement in a cycle, I told him I want to wait until after Christmas to start them.

Obviously, my elation over the house and continuing happiness with M's new job are making the infertility much easier to handle. I still don't want the potential emotional roller coaster ruining my first Christmas in my first house. As I've said, so many blessings have been heaped on us in the past two months, I almost feel guilty asking for a miracle baby too. I'm comfortable with letting all this play out in God's time for now and hopefully I can sustain that level of...trust, I guess.


  1. Congratulations on your house! And how darling it is!! I know how long you've wanted and waited for this so this is an especially happy time.

    Fingers crossed for this cycle. You know good things tend to come in 3's right? :)

  2. Beautiful house! I love the front porch. It is fantastic. I love old homes. Fingers crossed on a timely ovulation!

  3. Congratulations!!! That house is beautiful!!!


  4. Congratulations! I'm so jealous of your house!

    Good news about the scan too, go follies go!

  5. Congrats on the house!!! And good luck with the opks!
