From the beginning

Joel and I decided to start trying to have children almost 2 years ago. I wanted to be a mom almost right after we got married, but Joel was just not ready yet. We agreed that it would be best to wait until I was finished with college and we got to go on a nice vacation. So in July of 2007 we traveled to California for a week and decided that it was time to start a family. Unfortunately our plans didn't quite work out like we wanted them to. 

After a little more then a year of not getting pregnant. We started doing a fertility work up. It involved lots of blood draws (much to Joel's chagrin) and imaging tests and such. We found out I am ok, but apparently every part of Joel is ADHD and were thinking of other things besides the egg. 

So we have decided to go through with in vitro fertilization. We have an awesome fertility doctor. And God blessed us with a nice tax return to be able to afford this. The plan is to get a few more tests done and then begin the procedure in July. We are incredibly excited for what is to come. There will be lots of prep work for this so we pray that everything goes well. We'll keep you all updated through the process and hopefully through a pregnancy!

Oh and for all of you who are convinced that I will be having 8 babies, I can assure you there will be at most 2 and only more if God decides to split them at a later date. =D
