My Journey for #4

I am so excited about my new journey. I had my iud removed 12/04/05. This is the first time in 5 yrs that I have been without birth control. I am searching for my fertility and tring to get to know it a little better day by day. My first preg. was at the age of 18. my second at 24 and my third at 26. 3 boys healthy and happy. This will be my last attempt at motherhood. I am 31 and my husband is 32. He is getting used to the idea of having another baby. I had a very light period on 1/05/06. Ive been checking my cm. and the position of my cervix which was somewhat high, soft , and open. I would love to be pg. by 3/06!!!!

Today has been pretty interesting, I found an old calendar from 97-98 charting my menstrual cycles and bds. Looks like I was cycling every 28-35 days. I checked my cervix and it med high, softer, and a little more open. I took o test and it was neg. I just need to get my period so I can start charting from that point.

Today is Feb.15 2006 and I havent had my period yet. It has been since Dec. 2005. I wish I never had the mirena. I was told the my fertility would return to normal immediatly. What a lie!!! I was having all the symptoms that led me to believe I was pg. Sore and swoolen breasts, nausea, crampies, lots of cm..... But then I received the BFN!!! I am so angry. I cant even start charting because my period will not start. This is worse than coming off of bcps.

Its been 5 mths with the ttc journey. My dr put me on provera 2 weeks ago. Had a very heavy period. So I guess this is my first cycle with ttc. I am on CD6. I pray that I will O with this cycle. I have put this in GOD's hands and HE will make everything work for us.

Well I'm going to the dr. tomorrow to see what is going on. I dont bleive I'm O'ing. my cd21 test came back at 1.5. I'm guessing my next step will be clomid. I was prescribed clomid back in1998 but didnt have to take it because I found out I was PREGNANT!!! This is so hard but I'll really trying to be patient and praying that eveything will work out.

Went to the Dr. yesterday. She will induce my period in August if not PG or if I havent had my period by then. I guess patience is the key. Since I havent had a period that means Im not Oing. When will my body O? I am some what glad I havent started clomid. I have had 3 natural conceptions and Im feeling like I'm pressing my luck. I'm just going to have to hand this situation over to GOD. I'm just feeling like my body isnt doing much of anything. The Dr. reassured me that I am perfctly normal. That gives me some relief. Come on BFP!!!!!!

I have just mustarded up the energy to add to my journal. I misscarried on july5,2006. These past few months has been a healing journey for me. God is really teaching me to be patient. HE is surely working things out for me one day at a time. I found a new dr. in aug. and she diagnosed me with pcos. I am currently taking metformin and clomid. My first clomid cycle I had 1 good follie, 2nd cycled failed and my 3rd cycle Im on 100mg. I am praying to God that this works for me. I was devasted last cycle when it did not work. God pulled me through it. I am staying faithful that we will conceive soon. January makes 13 months for us. I am going through a form of secondary infertility. I have been blessed with 3 healthy boys. These past few months I have totally had to put all of my faith in God. I know HE is the only one who can pull me through this. Taking the meds are so difficult to take. The mood swings, hot flashes, and headaches are difficult. I am really praying this cycle will work for us. Friday I will have my cd14 ultrasound. I'm praying that it will working in my favor.

Well today is cd12 and I'm trying to be patient. So far I've felt small twinges in my ovaries, but nothing else. I'll go in for an ultrasound on Friday. I'm praying that GOD will work this out for me. I guess I've got to be patient at this point. It is so hard to do.

Well today is cd 13 for me. Yesterday I started to experience some twinges. By the evening I tender. I feel as if something is going on. More tender on my left side than my right. It kinda feels bloated. I was so worried about this cycle not working. This clomid thing is really hard. This month I took 100mg days 3-7. Ive Od once at 50mg. I am praying that God will give me new patience everyday. I am placing this in his hands. I know that it is all I can do.

Today is cd 14. I went in for my ultrasound this morning. I was so anxious about today's appointment. Well I had 1 mature follicle, so I received an hcg shot. I should O within 24-36 hours. I know God has his hands in this. I will stay faithful that he will answer my prayers.

Well today is cd19. I o'd Saturday night. That hcg shot really drains me. I experienced nausea and discomfort in my left ovary. I pray that God will make a miracle for us. I'm just learning to be patient. I will test 16 days after my hcg shot which will be Feb.4.... Super Bowl Sunday. Some days are so much easier than others. I will remain faithful. The nurse called me on Mon. to let me know that my ultrasound looks great. If get a bfn this cycle I will move on to an IUI. I'm praying that I will not have to take that route.

Today is cd22 for me. I think I am 6dpo. I am not really feeling any symtoms of pg. I have 8 more days until I test unless af comes on cd28. If this cycle is negative I will have an iui next round. I'm hoping that the iui will increase my chances. It's not fair that this has been so dificult for me. Some days it is really hard to breathe. I am not trying to stress myself out. I think I'm in need of a vacation. I have put all of my trust and faith in God. I know that He has heard my prayers.

Today I am 3dpo iui. I actually had a surge on cd 11. I went in for an ultrasound and I had a follicle measuring 23mm. I triggered that night and Od on cd 13. I think about an hour after my iui. The iui wasnt that bad but the 2ww is! I am so anxious. I am really praying for a BFP! I have prayed for this, and I know that God is working things out for me. I'm just going to have to trust and believe. I was feeling a little nausous earlier today. I've been feeling a little menstrual achey on and off since me iui. No other sign to note.

Well today is cd 19 for me. This month I decided to see a RE. He was really nice. I am feeling pretty positive about my ttc journey. This month I was advised to take a break, which I feel was a good decision. I had a hsg test, which was normal, and some blood work , which was normal also. M y husbands semen test was great. I am going through secondary infertility because of my pcos. My RE is focusing on getting me to ovulate with the femara since it has less side effects. I tried clomid for 4 cycles and it was horrible! I almost felt as if I was going through menopause. I am waiting to test next Wed. I actually had a positive opk on cd11. If I get a bfn, I will start the femara next cycle.
