Why I chose this title?
When life gets you down, don't give up, just keep swimming. I think that is very appropriate for me right now. Just keep swimming...

So, why did I start this blog? 21 months ago we started trying for a baby with no luck. Last fall, we started testing to find out why. Turns out, there are no problems with him, just me. I don't ovulate regularly, and the eggs aren't mature when I do release them. Seems minor, but after 5 months of clomid, no luck.
My doctor wants us to try IUI, but that's just not for me. I'm don't want to do more testing, and go to the dr constantly, just to concieve on a doctors table. It's just not for me. Nothing against anyone who does that...I admire your strength and determination. I don't have the strength to undergo all those doctors visits, and more disappointment.
So, we are moving on. We have decided to adopt. Starting a new journey. This blog is to keep a journal of my thoughts and feelings, and to keep track of what is happening in the adoption process.
Wish us luck!
