Sick of it All!

Posted 02-19-2011 at 11:38 AM by patientlywaitn (A New Journey)

Sometimes I really just want to quit trying. I haven't started AF yet but I feel like I do every other month around this time. Should be starting towards the end of next week. It's really hard to stay positive in situations like this. We still don't know definitively why we are ot conceiving. I have a wonderful fiance who has continued to support me and our efforts but he will never understand from a woman's perspective. I find myself feeling totally hopeless. Thsi is one of those things over which...

Progesterone Results

Posted 02-16-2011 at 05:22 PM by patientlywaitn (A New Journey)

The nurse already called this morning with my results; I was at an 8.5 and she said they like to see a 12. I was kind of prepared for a low reading but figured it would be because I believe I ovulated only about three days ago. However, she totally busted my bubble when she said to call when I start again so we can repeat the test. She never said anything about the results being low due to the timing of ovulation; she made it sound like they don't think we have any chance this month : ( Going to...

Blood Test

Posted 02-15-2011 at 06:51 PM by patientlywaitn (A New Journey)

So our computer crashed last week and I haven't been able to access the internet at all, so nice to have it back! I went for blood work today to determine whether or not I am actually ovulating; I'm pretty sure this one will come back normal. For the last few months, I have noticed that my body appears to follow a pretty specific cyclical pattern. I don't know if it's always been that way, since before ttc i didn't pay all that much attention to it. But pretty much, I begin to get breast tenderness...

Sigh of Relief!

Posted 02-05-2011 at 07:13 PM by patientlywaitn (A New Journey)

Got my HSG done on Friday and what a relief to have it over with! I started out excited to be moving on with the process of finding out the cause of our conception troubles but as the day got closer I found myself getting more and more nervous - I didn't know what it would feel like and what kind of results to expect. But I had the most wonderful staff! The nurse was great and talked and laughed with me the whole time. Then the doc and the woman that was assisting her came in and were just as much...

AF finally showed up (yesterday)! It's close enough to when I called the nurse that the results of the tests will not be affected. My fiance and I are excited - we are hopeful that the HSG will help us conceive and if not we will at least be closer to defining the problem and solving it! It has been a crazy week for both of us in our lives outside of TTC so this one bit of good news was warmly received! I must note though that the day AF arrived I found myself once again in a foul mood that we are...
