3 Big Steps...

#1- I had my first appointment with a therapist last Thursday and I actually loved it!  I left with a few things to work on.  The one I'm really focusing on right now is "the twenty minute rule" which is a strategy from RESOLVE.  It basically is an agreement a couple makes to only talk about fertility related issues at a certain point of the day for an agreed upon time (give or take time when necessary).  That way, my entire day does not have to be consumed with fertility talk.  Hubby and I each know we will have a chance to talk every day, but also realize this conversation does not have to evolve throughout the entire day.  So far, it's been working really well for us. 

# 2 - I found a RESOLVE support group in my area.  They meet on the first Monday of every month, so next week Monday will be my first official meeting.  I am SO excited!  I can't wait to meet women that I can relate to and hopefully build some supportive friendships.

# 3 - I received a letter today from my insurance company - approval for 1 "Complete Invitro Fertilization Cycle".   I am blessed.
