cd 11

Well, today is cd 11. Negative OPK this morning. I expected as much. It is still a little early. Praying for a POSITIVE tomorrow though!!! I played in a tennis tournament today at the club. It was fun. I played 5 matches (Pro Sets of course) all day. I was only expecting 3 but we kept winning and winning. I am so tired. If we had wont he last one we would have had 1 more to play. I am sunburned and tired. I didn't put on any sunscreen this morning because it was 54 degrees, cloudy, rainy, and COLD. The sun hasn't been out long but I am BURNT!!!!!

cd 8

Today is cd 8. This cycle is dragging on. I guess because I am so ready for the next IUI. I pray that my OPK detects ovulation in time. I am so ready for the next IUI. I am so ready to see what God as in store for us!!! I feel really confident right now about the next pregnancy. Not sure if I feel confident about the IUI, just the pregnancy.

I am sitting in class tonight. My students are taking a test. They are dropping last flies now. We are one week past mid-term and they have finally realized that if the Lab grade if half of their final grade and they haven't turned in a single lab all semester, they are not going to pass. I just want to yell at them sometimes and say "GROW UP"!!!!

I have a horrible headache today. I know it is hormone induced. You just know the feeling of a hormone induced headache. They started out dull on Sunday and have gotten stronger as the week has gone on. But I am suffering through it. Whatever it takes. One more day of these Letrozole pills and then I can start OPK testing!!!!! Pray that I will receive a positive on the OPK next week (preferably Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday)!!! I know, I know. I shouldn't be that specific about it!!!! :)

Oh and get this. My Mom found out today that the parking garage of the hospital where she works has had drug dealers dealing out of the garage...on the floor where my Mom works!!!! She parks on the 4th floor of the garage because their is an access door straight into the floor where she works. She is usually the last one in the garage at night on that floor and she is usually not scared because it is lit up and their is security "around" but today when she left she saw the drug dealers - RIGHT BESIDE HER CAR.....very scary!!!! Out of the entire floor - they parked right next to her. Please pray for her. The DEA has been around undercover trying to catch them, but that is all Mom needs is to walk out on night to the DEA in the middle of a drug bust right beside her car.

We Have Lift-Off

I can't believe it!!! My cycle started. Today is cd 29 if you count the D&C day as Day 1. I can't believe it and it was even a 28 day cycle. Keep us in your prayers. I will start the Letrozole this weekend and the OPK next weekend for a possible IUI the first week in April!!!!

I Stand Amazed in His Presence!!!!!!

WOW!! I am just amazed!!! God never ceases to amaze me!!!

Praise Him When I'm Up!! Praise HIm When I'm Down!!!!

Green Means Go!!!

I have been given the Green Light to go ahead and try again ASAP!! I went to see Dr. Isaacs on Thursday. He said that the tests that he ran showed high levels of polyphospholipid antibodies. This only shows up when pregnant. I will take a baby aspirin every day ;like I have for the past 2 years. As soon as my next cycle starts (hopefully this week - keep your fingers crossed) I can take the Letrozole and do the IUI and then the day I get a BPF I will go to the clinic, confirm it by blood work, and then start taking heparin injections 2 times per day for term plus 6 weeks post-partum. Did we finally find the magic recipe???? I sure hope so. Keep us in your prayers!!!!

We have been gone most of this week. We left on Sunday and got back in late Wednesday. We took the Youth from the church to Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas. We had a BLAST but I am work out. Burt went back to Arkansas on a Men's Retreat last night and left me home alone - in the tornadoes. I showed him. I started a HUGE project that he had to help me with when he got home. We cleaned out the flower beds in the back of the house. We still have the sides and front to go. We removed all the mulch and top soil and pruned plants and planted a few shrubs. We also planted a plant that a friend gave me after the D&C. I planted shrubs, geraniums, Gerber daises, and another plant that I can't remember the name of. I'll post pics soon.... It's not real pretty yet because we have not mulched.

I'm Baack!!!!!

I'm back!! I'm doing well. Still waiting for my pathology report to come back. I went for my post-op appointment yesterday and my doctor was really surprised that my pathology report was not back. He put a rush on it. He told me to expect a call from him any day now. I will let you know when I find out something.

My doctor asked me yesterday to call him when I get ready to go back to Dr. Issacs (fertility specialist). I told him yesterday was good. So they called me with an appointment. I will go next Thursday, the 13th, and start our next "plan". Keep us in your prayers. I have been reading and keeping up with all of you through your blogs but I just haven't had time to comment. I'll try to do that this weekend.
