I am PROUD, and SHOCKED to announce that the follicles that I mentioned last week have released an egg!
I really started to believe that because of my lack of temperature spike, or what I thought was a lack of temperature spike, meant that I did not ovulate and that I was destined to start this round of medicine completely over. . . well, Nurse Tammy says she is sure that I ovulated!
For many women, this miraculous thing happens every single month with no trouble. Because I do not naturally produce enough progesterone, my ovaries never get the memo! Well, they got the memo.
So, being appropriately busy the past week or so, we are instructed to wait 10-14 days for a new cycle, or possibly, maybe, hopefully, a positive pregnancy test.
BUT LISTEN UP= = =
DO NOT THINK THAT I WILL BE BUMMED OUT IF WE DO NOT COME UP PREU GNANT THIS MONTH….. of course, we want to be,
BUT WE ARE THANKFUL THAT MY BODY IS WORKING THE WAY THAT IT SHOULD….
I have been dealing with fertility issues for NEARLY THREE years..
I've obsessed, I've been jealous, I've been bitter, I have been a lot of things…
mad at God is not one of them…..
I have learned to trust Him with my life, and my body, and I continue to rely on his unfailing love for our lives. .
THIS WILL NOT BE THE END OF ME.. IF WE DID NOT CONCEIVE….
and if I tell you that we were not successful this month, do not feel the need to comfort or console me, or remind me that this is ok, blah blah blah………..
I am THRILLED that God has seen fit to allow this much to happen, and we are happy.
in three or four more months, when this medicine may be coming to an end, and we may not have baby securely placed in belly, I might need you to console me……
but for now, Let's just celebrate and be happy! I am!
** By the way, I have a TON of posts that I need to make, but have not had the opportunity… so look out tomorrow….
It MIGHT have something to do with Kate….
