Our summer has been hectic since the last journal. I've been taking care of our house, preparing it for the move and to sell, while Mark is out of town. We officially put our house on the market and made an offer on a new house. I think the most stressful thing is not knowing what we're going to do next. I'm trying to get a job in the new city so that when we get the go ahead that we can move, I'll be prepared. Adisyn misses her daddy so much. She doesn't quite understand why he has to leave so much. She even wakes at night calling for him. She understands he's at "work", but why do we always have to leave and not see him so much?
You can imagine that our TTC efforts have been nearly impossible. Since my last journal I had a procedure at the fertility doctor to remove a polyp on my uterus. The nurse actually found the polyp at an ultrasound, but because it is on my uterus the time frame that they can take it out is very dependent on my cycle. If they try to take it out too late in my cycle then my uterine lining would be too thick and they wouldn't be able to see or get it out. Last month the timing wasn't good because we were on vacation. When the polyp was detected the doctor examined it and wanted to get it out ASAP. They didn't really have many answers about how long it's been there, but it's possible it could be hindering my TTC efforts. It was explained that if an egg would try to implant, it wouldn't have the blood supply so it wouldn't have anything to stick to. The doctor also said that even before the polyp itself was growing the blood supply could've stopped to the area on my uterine wall. My only thought is that it's such a small area to implant so I'm not convinced that it has been the root of the cause. If anything a problem was removed, it was benign, and the doctor "scrapped" the uterus to create a fresh resting ground for an egg therefore increasing the chances of a good implantation.
In the meantime Mark and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. We originally planned, months back, that we wanted to go away for a weekend, just the two of us. But, when it grew closer I realized that there is nothing I would've wanted more than to spend time as a family. Even though we had to cancel our plans because of Mark's new move, it could not have been a better day. Adisyn and I drove down to see Mark and spent the weekend with him. We explored our new city and it felt so relaxing just to be together as a family. We had a great weekend!
