OK, so this is my April  post!

Prayed really hard and with the help of my wonderful parents we decided to try IUI, and Clomid. I started with 200MG of clomid and the rest of my meds and just waited. After multiple U/S and waiting I had two beautiful follicle's and it was time for the IUI. The procedure was a little painful, and it sucked that my hubby had to work that day, but my Bestie Kat was there to support me! I went home and ate Pineapple for 5 days (supposed to help with implantation) then waited another week while praying those little swimmers would just pick one egg and go to it!! I mean come on they had 2 to choose from. But after the 2 Week Wait we got a BFN (BIG FAT NEGATIVE)

This was truly a hard month for us. I had felt the Lord telling me I needed to trust and not test early and just to wait on him. (so hard for this control freak), but I know the LORDS timing is always perfect and he has my miracle baby waiting for me someday.

Cant wait to see what next month holds.

Ok, so I said I was blogging a month late from now on, so here is my March cycle blog.....

After multiple tests and diagnoses we were now finally able to try again. We did this as a cycle with a Trigger shot and timed intercourse. My Dr. scanned me every few days to check on the growth of my folicles. He wanted to make sure it got to 16mm before we could trigger. Those of you who are not familiar with fertility speak it is a HCG shot that forces your body to have an LH surge that causes ovulation. The Dr. wanted to do this with me because I ovulate late and that might have contributed to my previous losses. So when my follicle was large enough he send us home to baby dance!!

I came in two weeks later for my beta (pregnancy blood test.) No bueno big fat negative!!!

I knew though, I had no symptoms and had taken an HPT at home. Never softens the blow though. Still just as devastating when it seems like everyone around you can get pregnant by just looking at their man.

We plan on continuing next month (April) with fertility meds this time. (Clomid) Keep checking back for more updates!!

We are very excited about the next chapter of our lives to start very soon. Rob (husband) leaves June 1, 2011 for basic training.
