The Nurse Who Loved Me

Over the last couple of years, Ryan and I have wanted kids very badly. We have not been able to have them on our own and so we turned to fertility treatment. After much treatment and many tests, we have decided to do in vitro. We have created a blog so you can all follow along in our journey. This is a very personal part of our lives, so it has taken us a while to make this blog public. I know, you may think we're crazy, but at least we love each other and through this all our relationship has grown more than I could have ever imagined.

This week is a very exciting week for us. Not only do we get to start daily injections for in vitro, but Ryan actually graduates from college. It's so crazy that 2 years have flown by so quickly. It seems like we were just buying his ugly BYU scrubs. Oh I how I hate those scrubs. Today was the last day of class for Ryan. I think it was a very bittersweet moment for him. He has also had an interview at UVRMC and tomorrow he has an interview at Intermountain Medical Center. We even went and bought him a new suit and boy does he look handsome! Wish him luck that he will find a job! It's kind of stressful trying to find a job right out of school. I had no idea.

Well, that's it for now. Stay posted. I'm sure there will be quite a bit going on this month in our life. Wish us luck!

Oh my! You are very breave and very cool for starting that blog. If I had done one, I'm sure it would have been a great way to vent out my frustrations and maybe talk out my feelings, like a journal or something.

Um, now I'm going to your other blog. I must keep myself updated on your baby-makey-hopings.
