I was not looking forward to mother’s day. I expected to be bombarded by mother’s day commercials and people celebrating. I however, got a good message in a place that I didn’t expect to. I went to church with my husband and thought that they would have all the mother’s stand up, but they didn’t. Instead in the pastor’s sermon he mentioned infertility said something that made me teary and thankful. I waited to write about it because I was hoping to get the podcast so I could get the exact wording right. However, it still isn’t posted so I’m just going to do my best though I know it won’t be as eloquent. He said that he knows that on a day to celebrate mom’s there are many who want to be mom’s but are not able to and that it is hard. He said that to remember that many women in the bible had trouble becoming mom’s and had to wait a long time and prayed to god for a long time before they became mom’s. He pointed out that of those women who had to wait a long time to get pregnant that their children were very important in history and that those who are wanting to be mom’s will find a way to mother and provide support and love to those who need it. In the end he said for those who are wanting to be a mom to keep their chins up and to keep the faith. I thought about emailing him afterwards to thank him for thinking about those who can’t get pregnant, but I haven’t yet. I’m not sure if I want to out myself.
In my saga I talked to the nurse at my RE’s office today. I wanted to come up with a plan since I still don’t have AF for sure. She said that she wants me to wait until next monday to see if I get a period. If I don’t I should come in on monday for another beta and progesterone check. She said she doesn’t think that there is a chance that the beta will be positive, but that she wants to make sure I’m not pregnant before she gives me anything that will make me bleed. She mentioned something about my progesterone levels being low when I had my beta, which made me wonder about ovulation, but I had the ovidrel shot so that would have made me ovulate correct? I’m going to ask about that the next time I talk to someone. Sounds like I will have to take provera or something on Monday, which means I probably won’t be able to cycle until at least two weeks more after that. I just hope that I respond this time and don’t have to go through what I did before – prometrium for ten days and then having to wait for another two weeks for my period never to show. Please don’t let me go through that again.
