The Baby Journey continues

DG gave me the first shot of our almost final round of fertility shots last night.

Just pray. We have this round of shots and then enough money for one more round (plus I just think that my body only has it for one more round...this stuff is tough on the body, you know? ) Dr. Awadalla is optimistic just because they 'cleaned me out' as he said in the laproscopy, so we are just holding onto God for the ride.

It is strange how all of this works on your soul, your emotions. In december, I just had a tough time with it all..maybe it was all the talk of a baby. Or maybe it was the fact that I had OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulus Syndrome)....but now, I am in the strange 'peace that passes understanding' point. But I do know this: I know that we need the prayers of our friends and family through this. So, pray. I will try to keep you updated, which you may learn more about this whole process than you ever wanted to know, but you know what, God has been working on me about my pride. I don't want to share because I don't want others to think that I am weak, but you know, that is stupid. There are people out there who can really be helped with my sharing about this journey: not only those going through infertility, but those walking with these couples. So, I am packing up the pride and letting you know what is going on.

Basically, here is how it works:
We take the Follistim shots starting on day 3 of my cycle through day 10 or so. We go to the doctor every 2 or 3 days for an intrauterine ultrasound (yeah, those are fun) to see how my body is responding to the drugs. Then when it is 'time', I take another shot of ovidrel to make my body release the egg or eggs. Then the fun for DG starts, but that is for another blog!!! Thanks for your prayers and for reading all of this!

Tiffany, you don't remember me I'm sure from Seminary, but we shared some classes in CE before you changed majors. Anyway, I literally stumbled on your blog. I just want you to know that I will be praying for you. I know the pain of female problems and what it does to your soul and heart. It is a true walk of faith. I was told in 2003 I would probably not be able to have children. I know have a beautiful 15m old daughter, who I thank God for daily. Lots of hugs and prayers. Have you ever been on the WebMD message boards. There are some fantastic ladies on there who have walked similar paths. I hope I"ll be able to find my way back here for some good news in a few weeks.
