So tomorrow's the big day. Headed to the doctor for my annual appointment (oh fun) and Michael is coming with me so we can talk with the doctor about our future potential in terms of starting a family.
Things are going to be a little more complicated for us than they are for the typical wife and hubby in the regards to the fact that Michael had a vasectomy about 8 years ago. Therefore, before we can head down the yellow brick road to parent-dome, we have to get his plumbing hooked up, and working.
Supposedly, it takes about a year for things to heal and start functioning (with swimmers intact). We're really not looking to start a family SOON, but sooner than later. And, knowing that we first have to save money to pay for this procedure, and then wait about a year for everything to be in full swing, we figured now would be a good time to start the ball rolling in terms of planning, saving, and getting prepared.
Hopefully we don't run into any other complications along the way. This is going to be expensive enough (about 5 to 10K depending on the amount of scar tissue) and I'm hoping we're lucky enough that this works so we don't have to inquire about artificial insemination. Lord knows I'd lose my mind with quadruplets.
I guess we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, but for now, we're starting with a simple doctor's appointment and will hopefully be a simple conversation with the doctor.
