seriously, my jaw just dropped

Thursday, April 21, 2011

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!

Just stumbled across your blog after looking at your beautiful house flip and just happened to read this most recent post. I myself have been on Metformin and have long 37 day cycles. We have a baby girl already, but have started thinking about another one. I know it's no coincidence that I read your post about trying to have a baby. God is faithful, he was faithful to us, and he'll be faithful to you. He wants to give you the desires of your heart...keep trusting in Him!
Isn't it so funny how we can get so excited over these things?!
