Maybe baby?

Adam and I had an appointment with a reproductive doctor today. Let me tell you how excited and nervous we were. We were so nervous and excited that Adam got pulled over for speeding on our way. It was kind of funny but not at the same time. The cop was fortunately pretty nice. We got there and signed in. I felt kind of funny because I looked around and we were the youngest people in the office. My heart went out to all these people who were there for some of the same stuff we were there for. My name got called and we went into our designated room. The nurse took my blood pressure and weighed me. I was kind of surprised because I didn't know they would do all this check up stuff. I thought we were there to talk about our options. Anyway...we sat there for the shortest amount of time I've ever had to wait for a doctor. Our doctor came in with a resident, which I have actually had the pleasure of working with for a while now. It was nice to see a familiar face. It actually put me at ease and I felt I could ask her questions. The doctor told us that we will need to do In-vitro fertilization. Some info about in-vitro (if you are curious)
He said he was pretty optimistic about it working because of our ages. I was starting to get pretty excited and then he brought up the money issue. I wasn't sure what we were going to do about it since we aren't exactly the riches people and our insurance doesn't cover it. The doctor said that we could apply for a grant from some place called the Miracle Fund. We thought that would be really awesome because then we wouldn't have to worry about a loan and having to pay for it. Unfortunately, we have to wait another few more months before we can qualify. I think it will be good in the long run but I was getting really excited about it because it was happening pretty fast. Then, the doctor told me they were going to do an exam which I definitely had no idea that was going to happen since I thought we were just TALKING. They did the exam and that seemed to be pretty good. Now I have to wait about 2 weeks to do some labs to make sure I am healthy reproductive wise. Then, they are going to a sonohysterogram to make sure my uterus is healthy as well. (Sorry if that is too much info). But this is what I am going through and I will probably post more posts with TMI! 
So now we have to wait for about two weeks and take care of these labs. Then, we will probably wait until we can qualify for this grant. We might have to wait for a while for the grant to go through which might take a while or might not take that long. No matter what happens we are just determined to have a baby or babies! ;) 
That's all for now. I will update when we do the labs. (Adam has to do some labs as well.)
