We didn’t even have to debate how long we should wait until we take a pregnancy test. I woke up today with an achy back and knew that something was going to happen and sure enough it did! I got a period.
What a mixture of emotions. I’m not really sure how to think or feel at the moment.
I was really thinking that we were pregnant this time around and what is frustrating is we are doing EVERYTHING we are supposed to be doing to make it work and it’s not working.
What are we doing wrong or what is wrong with my body that the egg (if there is one inside these follicles we are seeing) is not meeting up with the sperm (which have said to be strong) and then implanting in the uterine lining (that I’m wearing estrogen patches for to build the thickness).
What are we missing? Why haven’t we become pregnant and how much longer do we have to go through these ups and downs.
I’m starting to question how many rounds of fertility my mind and heart can take.
Getting so hopeful and being positive for what could be this time around is helpful, but tiring. I’m tired of the letdown and the emotions that come with knowing that there is not a baby forming this month.
And there may not ever be. We won’t know that until we walk this path for a while.
I am super excited to have a period, don’t miss that. This means I don’t have to go through 10 days of Provera (progesterone) to force a period. My body is actually reacting normally right now which is positive.
Might this be the month then, if I’m reacting normally and we are on a higher dose of Clomid?
We visit the doctor this week to get checked out and decide our course of action.
Am I ready (mentally) to do another round? God, do you want us to keep trying with all the doctor interventions?
Sometimes I question if we are supposed to simply let go altogether of the medications and the doctor’s appointments and let God work his miracles completely on his own… I mean, he is powerful enough, right?
