Last week, before heading to the fertility doctor, I randomly decided to stop following the two or three blogs about difficulties conceiving. I guess I just kinda got tired of seeing them pop up, plus I never really read them after the first couple of times any way! I hoped that my fertility struggles would not be as extreme as those.
Friday I visited the doctor. An ultrasound was done, and showed that everything was normal! The pipes are working just fine! It’s a miracle! It was very exciting news, because let’s just face it–the idea of any fertility drugs is scare-ree!
I called my mom to tell her that I officially have a vacancy sign on my uterus, and maybe somebody will come and make it home for 9 months. She was excited. She responded by saying, “So are you going to start trying now, or wait a while?”
(That was the sound my heart made when it hit the floor.)
I responded with, “Yeah, we’ll just keep trying.”
We have been trying for a year. I have indulged on Twin Lab Prenatal vitamins for 12 months now. Even when the doctor said it wouldn’t happen (without medication) in November, we still tried. Granted, we weren’t exactly hoping to get pregnant in the first 3 months, but were trying none-the-less. As it turns out, it didn’t matter anyway, because the Depo shot was still very much in my system, preventing pregnancy.
Everything should be fine now. If I’m not pregnant by September, I will go to a doctor in Arkansas. Until then… we wait. we try, again.
I’m not thinking we’re out of the water, free and clear just yet. There still lies the fact that we’ve worked so hard for this. Basically, I hope people don’t start in with the crazy comments couples who are TTC often hear. Until then, we’ll just keep on keepin’ on, but this time, we have an OPK.
