I'll never understand this body.

I have had THREE (count them, 1-2-3) positive OPK's in a row on days 18-20. That's WAY sooner than last month when I was on Clomid. So, yeah....an unmedicated cycle where my body is doing something on it's own. Amazing. Unfortunately I had a wicked stomach virus in the middle of all of that, so I am surprised my body did anything. But, still...positive OPK's. In my opinion, that's news worth posting about!

(Just thought I'd let you know.)

That IS pretty important, I'm glad to hear it... The human body is amazing how it doesn't cooperate when we want it to so badly, and then when you're least expecting it... :)
I hope even with your virus you were able to make this month "count." I always pray for a natural miracle for you two.

Anonymous,
No...we decided not to go that route right now. We are on a "medical break" for the next couple of months. Thanks for asking, though. I was actually so surprised by the positive OPK's that I didn't know which way was up! The thought of calling my doctor did not even cross my mind! LOL.

Thanks for reading...all of you.

I am new to your blog. I have to tell you I am so thankful for you. I really appreciate your honesty and willingness to be transparent. I just listened to the song you attached from utube by Kellie Coffey about
infertility. I too want to know what it is like to bring a dream to life. I too want to hear the words, "I love you Mom", I too want to have a chance to hold in my hands what so many have. I too try so hard to be happy for my friends who have babies and I do not like feeling jeoulous. I am looking for God in all of this and He is there. I do not understand what God is doing right now. My husband and I have been trying for a year. We are now seeing a specialist in infertility. I am going to be 42 years old. We just got married about 16 months ago. I have done an Ultrasound and we have learned why it is so difficult for me to get pregnant. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This is treatable and I will be on Clomid as well. I have not started my first treatment yet. This is a battle and is so very emotional. It can feel really unfair sometimes. I am scared my dream wont happen for my husband and I because of my age and reproductive problems. IT is hard to trust and hope. So I really appreciate you sharing your journey. People who do not have this issue cannot relate or understand. This journey is a heartache and it is good to know that I am not alone. The things you share in your blog really confirm for me that my feelings and thoughts are not so uncommon afterall. Finally I found someone who can relate to me. I am looking forward to more writings from you in your blog. I am willing to open and share myself also. I will do my best to be transparent. We do serve a God that is much bigger then all of this.

Lisa,
I'm sorry I'm just now responding to your thoughtful comment! I just read it for the first time. I can so relate to your hurt. Time is both a friend and an enemy in the struggle of infertility, so while time helps me to get accustomed to the hurt, time also takes away my days of possible conception.
I hope you feel comfortable here to read and comment and share in this trial. Infertility is much too hard to carry alone. And, since I don't know very many people "in real life" who struggle with IF (and zero people in my daily living here in my town), the online IF community (which has amazed me with its support!!) is a strong group of people who truly know how you feel.

I pray that your treatments go well and that you are able to end this journey soon. I long for the day I can actually shut down this site. :)

May the Lord bless you this Christmas!
