Tell Us More About Your Blog

My blog is about my visits to the doctor and my IVF journey. The end result is what I want but I am not sure I can handle the road to the end. I am battling trying to get off medication before I do IVF and have been unsuccessful so far. I am going to get acupuncture this week to see if they can help me get off my medication. I don't want to stress the entire 9 months if the IVF works about having a baby with birth defects. Because of this I am torn on what to do. Do I chance it and continue with IVF or do I throw in the towel and not do IVF because I take medication? Right now I am 50/50.
