We aren’t messing around anymore.
These past two rounds have been insightful for Dr. G. and he is ready to pull out the big guns.
We begin 10 days of Letrozole, at 10mg/day, the highest dose he will prescribe.
I am actually a little excited at the possibility of what this will produce.
Let’s get these follicles growing!
Each cycle has become such a routine that I have grown accustomed to.
Day one, make an appointment with my OBGYN for an ultrasound.
Head to the local LabCorp and get a blood test to confirm I am not pregnant.
Pop into my OBGYN for the ultrasound, ensuring there is nothing funky growing inside of me from all the hormones and measure the uterine lining.
Day three, begin Letrozol.
Days three through twelve, endure breaking out, early bedtimes, afternoon naps.
Day twelve, follicle check and see what next steps are to be.
Learning how to take care of myself on a new level.
I am going to the gym this time around. I need to. My mind needs the oxygen and release of tension. My muscles need the weight and attention.
At the start of this cycle, I receive news that one of my closest, dearest friends is pregnant. I am overjoyed. My body exudes love and excitement for her.
I have no sorrow. Only joy and praise for the opportunity they have received to raise a little one.
My heart is shifting. I am not looking at myself. I do not have the heavy heart as I have experienced in the past. My excitement and praise for God’s miracle growing inside of her are overflowing.
What is going on? I love that this is how I feel.
I meet the new little baby girl of another friend. I get to hold her and express my excitement and joy for her to my friend.
Am I changing? What is shifting inside of me? Whatever it is, I really like it.
God, thank you for giving me this part of the journey to refine and grow me.
My rough edges are being smoothed and I trust how you are reshaping my heart and mind.
Continue to use this to make me a better person, a more loving friend, and a more faithful, trusting person is who you are and what you’re capable of, God.
I thank you for this heartache and let down as it’s shaping my journey so far.
So excited to see what you’re going to do in and through this!
May I be a vessel or light to reach others. God, use me and my story to help others.
