Infertility, Marriage

Prayers Appreciated!

March 20, 2014

I shared in my Little Happies this past week that I was going to be doing a new treatment to help get my ovaries to ovulate.

New as in nearly experimental-ish.

Well, it turns out my right ovary was a little bit of an eager beaver this round of clomid and on CD 10 its already mature. Typically I don’t “ovulate” on my chart until CD 17-18, so this is unusual. After receiving my U/S results this morning, I got a call from PPVI to not take my new medicine.

Instead, to my surprise, I was told to go ahead and do a 10,000 unit HCG trigger shot (administered by nurse Jonathan). He makes me say “you are the best nurse” every time he gives me shots, since I myself am a RN. He likes to rub it in that he has more nursing experience than I do currently.

Back to HCG – we tried this once before back in November and it didn’t work. It just resulted in an even fatter LUF that month and I hit a new low with infertility. So obviously I am nervous that we will have a repeat LUF…but maybe, just maybe, the trigger will work and I will actually ovulate like a normal woman.

This is where your prayers are appreciated. Please pray for:

  • healthy ovulation (let’s be honest I really want to pray for a healthy pregnancy but this a vital first step my body likes to forget to do!!!)
  • my sanity
  • the ability to forgive my body if it creates another LUF
  • my mood – I get a bit crazed on HCG

A rosary, spontaneous prayers, a chaplet, candle lighting, shouts, whispers, groans, novenas – however you desire to join us in prayer, it’s very much appreciated.
