Baby Has Two Moms

Where to Start?

It’s been a long week. My period finally started yesterday, but according to Dr. McDreamy’s office today is actually CD1.

I say finally because my period was 3 days late. We had a health scare last week. Not to go into too much detail, but twooftwo has a degenerative thing that will necessitate her having a transplant one day. She’s known for almost 15 years. We accept it, but when someone tells you that it might be closer it’s a fucking kick in the gut.

Stupid specialist #1 (a new doc to us) scared us shitless, because he doesn’t have enough experience to know his ass from a hole in the ground, after he read her results for the first time. He sent us to a surgical specialist 24 heart wrenching hours later who said the stupid specialist #1 over reacted, but that because she is a bit of an anomoly to them (being so young and all) he’d like to send us back to the big city to see a transplant specialist who can tell us how close we are and what we need to be doing differently, if anything. The specialist that we had been seeing (who was damned good and very experienced with conditions like hers) left a few months ago and we ended up with SS#1. We’re waiting for a call from the big city doctor’s office to know when we go for a battery of tests.

I have been struggling a lot with what to do about the conception process. Is it selfish to keep trying while we’re waiting to learn more or is it just optimistic to keep going to help us fulfill our dream of growing our family? Need to make some decision soon, meds start tomorrow.

Shit, I need chocolate and a hug!
