You've Got Mail!

A very important piece of mail arrived today.

Our "Welcome to Intfertility"Packet is here! (No, of course that's not what it really says.)

Over the next few weeks, in preparation for our first RE appointment, Rob and I will work through a mountain of paperwork answering questions about our sex life, our good & bad habits and both of our family medical histories.

Some interesting conversations have already come up. Tonight as Rob stood shaving at the bathroom sink I called out from the kitchen, "Hon, you've never gotten anyone pregnant have you?". He gave me a strange look, then his dry response, "Not that I know of," made me laugh. Obviously Rob doesn't have any children, but that doesn't mean I can assume he's never been responsible for getting someone pregnant. We don't know everything about each other's former lives and I prefer it that way. But if it's on the forms, I have to ask.

Wish us luck and a good sense of humor as we navigate this first step!

  1. GOOD LUCK!! This is an amazing new start, and I have every confidence that this is going to lead you to your baby (your baby with Rob--not some secret babies in the past that no one knew about :) ).
