seriously, my jaw just dropped

In my last post I mentioned that Alex and I were heading back to Dr. Erickson at the Center for Reproduction and we were very excited to start “trying” for a baby again. 

I have to update this here because I can still hardly believe it.  I am NOT pregnant…yet.  Just thought I’d get that out of the way in case you were anxiously awaiting that news.

On our other blog I wrote about a drug that I’ve been on for the past 3 months called Metformin.  You can read about that here.  Well today, because I’ve been patiently waiting for my period to come again and it’s currently day 40, I went in per my Doctor’s instructions to have a pregnancy test done and for them to check my progesterone levels.  Basically your progesterone level shows whether you ovulated or not. If I didn’t ovulate and my pregnancy test was negative, they would start me on Provera to basically induce a period so we could start our next Femara cycle.

The pregnancy test was negative which I was 99% sure would be right.  I’ve been charting on and off and didn’t think I ovulated so when I listened to the message and heard the nurse say…”You’re progesterone levels were 14 which means you DID OVULATE” I nearly fell off my chair.

In fact my eyes welled up with tears and I texted Alex a shortened version of all that while he sits in his Real Estate class and I said thank you Lord.  He said “CRAZY!”

I don’t know the last time that ever happened on its own.  I’m so thankful.  Just thought you might want to know.

Funny the things that bring a smile to our faces these days!
