I’ve been really bad about keeping up with my blog this summer, but I wanted to give a quick infertility update. My last post about our journey, stated that we were going to be starting more treatments this summer, and a few people have recently inquired about how our treatments are going. After a much needed break from treatments following our failed IUI in February, we did indeed begin more fertility treatments at the beginning of July. Here’s a quick infertility recap since my last post in March:
While we weren’t seeking treatments this past spring, I did still use OPKS (ovulations predictor kits) each month, simply so I knew if my body was ovulating on its own or not. Before we can receive the miracle of pregnancy, we needed the miracle of ovulation. Since that didn’t happen in March, April or May, there wasn’t much to hope for as far as a pregnancy was concerned. No ovulation….no pregnancy. The only good thing about not ovulating for those three months was that I didn’t stress out each month waiting to see if I was pregnant.
We had planned on starting treatments in June, but since we were taking our summer vacation in June, we pushed treatments back to July. Our prayer was that God would provide a miracle for us, and we would get pregnant before our planned treatments in July. But if He chose not to allow us to get pregnant during that time, we would take that as a sign to go forward with our planned treatments. For a short time, we thought we may have actually gotten our miracle.
