Meeting with Dr Murrain

After our meeting with Dr Kim and his suggestion that Cystic Fibrosis may be in our genes, we decided to book an appointment with Dr Murrain.

Interview with Dr Murrain.
Dr Murrain is a genetic infertility specialist at the Gyft Clinic. He was great. And he gave us hope.
And at that moment when we found out that there were so many obstacles, we really needed hope. We talked to Dr Murrain and he explained to us that we could get pregnant even with all of the issues we had run into this far. In fact, he went so far as to point out that we could be pregnant within the month! For a couple who just heard that it would be near impossible to get pregnant, this was what we needed.

During this initial meeting with Dr Murrain, he talked through a little bit about what to expect, the cost, and some of the problems that could arise. But looking back now, he was a bit vague. The Official Explanation Meeting (which is coming soon!) is when he really went into detail. Wow.

But at this point, we had hope, we had a plan and since we already know where Thomas stood with the whole process, they still needed to find out what my body was doing.

Next up, the month of tracking my hormones and doing the blood work of whether or not I had the Cystic Fibrosis gene.
