Goodbye Break...Hello Fertilities!!!

Let me start this off by saying yesterday I was thinking about continuing this break until after June. Now let me explain why…I have had NO sign of ovulation; none of the physical signs nor any high temps to indicate I did ovulate…so my thinking was I would not be starting anytime soon. Well keep in mind Zach will be having knee surgery the beginning of May, I was “assuming” that I wouldn’t start till the end of March…well that would only give us one month to try…our thoughts were “should we? …knowing that it can take up to 2 good months before Clomid is back in my system and working”…we were thinking a break would sound like the most reasonable thing to do; however neither of us wanted to take one…

When all else fails, call your Dr :) I know my Dr. will tell me what to do; he is such an amazing Dr, and always knows the right thing to do!!! He told me “Tiffany, I don’t think you should…” he followed by explaining that he can not tell me what to do, if I want to take a break longer than what we intended than I should, however being that we just had an HSG and it makes us extremely fertile for the following 3 months he advises we take advantage of that! (“OH MY GOODNESS...I COMPLETELY FORGOT”…”WHAT WERE WE THINKING”—these were just a few of the thoughts that were crossing my mind about this time!!!!) He said yes there is no guarantee I will get pregnant (I didn’t on my last HSG) however he said that we defiantly need to take advantage of this moment, even if it is just for one cycle…He asked if I was near starting (this was yesterday when I talked to him) I told him I was fixing to be on day 30, but AF was no where in site…he told me to call him on day 40 if I haven’t started before then; but that he would be praying that I started sooner so that maybe we could get in 2 good cycles before Zach’s surgery.

So when Zach and I went on our walk last night with our puppies we talked about everything, Zach said “I wish you would start now…that would give us such a better chance during this time…” I replied “ I know honey…I know….all we can do it pray”!

I got to work, ran around like a mad women getting things together for a fundraiser we are doing at work for a lady who is out due to MS, and we are having food day today for Saint Patty’s Day…so I was none stop still about 9:30…I FINALLY had the chance to run to the bathroom for a quick potty break…I’m really glad that the bathrooms were empty, b/c out of nowhere all you could here was “HOLY MOLY!!”…yes that would be me in the stall in complete SHOCK…Aunt Flow has arrived in the building!!! I prayed last night for a sign, I prayed that he guide me…and if this isn’t a sign and this isn’t guidance than I don’t know what is…by my cycle starting today we will MOST likely be able to get in TWO good cycles before Zach’s knee surgery in May! THANK THE LORD!!!!

God has a plan!!! He is ALWAYS several steps ahead of us. He promises to give all who walk with Him and trust Him, the true experience of peace and patience!! He has shown me once again that he is in control, and with him “All things are possible”. “O woman, great is your faith: be it unto you even as you desire” (Matt 15:28)

Now…the question…starting on Saint Patty’s Day…is that good luck or back luck? :)

I called my Dr…and here is the game plan:

I will start fertility meds (Clomid 150mg) on Thursday (CD3-CD7)
Estrogen will start on Tuesday (CD8)
Progesterone will start Saturday (CD12...OR after ovulation has been confirmed)
My First follicle scan is Monday CD7 at 8:00AM

Thank you all for the many prayers...you will never know how much Zach and I appriciate it :)

Tiffany, I could hardly contain myself when I read this post. I could feel your excitement jumping off the page!!! I will be praying daily for you. If all goes well, shouldn't you be ovulating somewhere in the second week of April? We practice Natural Family Planning and I chart out my cycle on a daily basis, so I'm pretty familiar with what a cycle looks like.

Continue having faith...God is so good. I will believing for you guys that this will be the season for your precious miracle. Can't wait until the day I get the green light to start making some little hats for your little one!!!

Hey...thanks for visiting my blog. I am new to your journey. I just wanted to say, continue to trust God in this time. He does have a devine plan. It's so hard to understand when you are in the valley's. (I don't know how much you know about our journey, but we tried to conceive for 5 years before being blessed with our "miracle" baby.) I prayed faithfully Phil 4:11. I must have prayed this verse more than a million times.... My fingers are crossed for you guys that these cycles following your HSG are successful!

AHHH That is exciting. I started to get excited for you when I was reading...

If we decided to do another round of Clomid next month I am getting bumped up to the 150mg. Ahh I hope I don't have more symptoms. Do you have a lot? I have had nothing since being on it. Well other then a few weird cramps.
