This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Getting Ready to Get Ready!

It's that time again! Nick and I have always planned to have our children about 5 years apart. I use the term "plan" loosely since infertility is a huge speedbump in our life. Now that Brad is 4 we are working on gearing up to TTC for #2. I have done a lot of reading on male infertility and have read a lot of good things about herbal supplements to treat/improve his specific problems.

He has started on a vitamin regimen and has been on it for going on 6 weeks now. It takes at least 3 months for changes to start taking effect so we started around the middle of May to prepare to TTC around August. I call this Plan A. Plan B will be trying Clomid (for him, not me), and Plan C will be IVF. Plan D is to have an only child :(


We have added 1 more vitamin since this picture, so all of the ones he is taking are:

1. Vitamin C 500mg
2. Zinc 25mg
3. Vitamin E 400IU
4. L-Arginine 500mg
5. L-Carnitine 1000mg
6. One-A-Day multivitamin for men

I am planning on scheduling a consultation with a new RE (our old one retired in January) around August so that we can hit the ground running and not waste any time. Please pray for us that we are able to conceive WITHOUT doing IVF and that everything works out!
