1,2,3 Here We Go!!

We went into the doctor today and did another ultra-sound. I have not one, not two, but THREE good follicles!! YAY!!! The doctor said that three is the perfect number of follicles to be working with. We are super excited and hopeful!
The next step is the HCG shot tonight which Max has to give me. We have always had the shots done at the doctor so we are a little nervous to do it ourselves. Max is really nervous but I know he will do great and then we will be one step closer to our goal!
Then back to the doctor on Thursday morning for the IUI which I have heard is very easy and painless. We are just feeling very peaceful and excited to try this procedure. We know that we are in God's hands and are excited to see his plans for our future. Thanks to all of you for praying for us. We are truly blessed to have so many amazing friends and family who support us and keep us in their prayers! We love you all!
For now we are praying that we will have good news to share with everyone very soon!!

Our Busy Life!!

In May we took a trip out to Washington and Oregon with my brother Randy and his girlfriend Brittany . We got to see most of the Krug Family in Seattle before heading down to Oregon. We totally fell in love with the three newest additions to the family!! We can't wait to see everyone again soon! And of course we had an amazing time in Oregon...one of our favorite places in the whole world!! I am already missing it and ready to go back and sit on the beach!!
The time has finally come for us to try IUI (intrauterine insemination). We are so excited to finally be to the point where we can try something again. We went in Friday, did an ultra-sound and got the medicine (just pills) that I am taking for 5 days. Then next Friday we will go in and do another ultra-sound to make sure that the pills worked and I have good follicles. Then I will do the HCG shot that day to stimulate ovulation. We will then go back in (I am guessing Saturday) and do the IUI!I am excited and nervous. So hopeful that this could be what will end up working for us. We will keep everyone updated on how the rest of the process goes next week.
As for the house stuff they are starting the building of the house on June 15th at the factory. They will start the basement sometime after that since it will go faster. It should take 4-6 weeks for the house to be built. Hopefully we will be moving in August. Right now we are working on getting the curb and gutter done. One step at a time...we are definitely learning patience through this whole process!!
