Today we met with the fertility specialist. Very nice doctor, he explained all the procedures up front. We did explain we didn't feel comfortable with Invitro fertilization. However, there are some procedures that involve taking fertility drugs and having, basically, artificial insemination. There doesn't seem to be any moral quandry with those procedures, no eggs are taken out, just the sperm is deposited further up in the uterus so they are closer to the eggs.
Tomorrow at 11:30 I go in for a dye procedure to see if there is anything blocked or if I do have endimitriosis. I am assuming I don't, but you never know, he did say some women have it without having any pain.
The next step would be a more surgical procedure where they would actually go inside with a scope and try to repair something if there is an issue. That would have to be scheduled next month, immediately after my period, as they don't want to do that procedure in case I might be pregnant. I will have a blood pregnancy test tomorrow before this first procedure, just to be sure.
I have a hard time talking to my husband about all these things and what I'm feeling. I am praying that I will be able to discuss this with him and get some closure on what we're going to be doing about all this.

You will be in my prayers tomorrow as well. Best of luck to you and your husband and hold on tight to God. He'll get you through.
