"You didn't ovulate"

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

It's amazing what damage those three little words can do to a person trying to conceive. I realize it's just the first round of clomid, but for the first time in..years... I let myself hope. I opened myself up to a possibility that's been closed so many times and years before. I let my self envision a life with this possibility. And I did everything right... Except the one thing that a woman should be able to do - even with fertility medication.

My heart is broken.

    Stay positive! I have seen many lows of infertility myself and although it never gets easier, I remind myself it has to be happening for a reason. Perhaps there are children out there who need our love through adoption. Or perhaps your little miracle will happen when you least expect it. I truly know you'll be a mother one day!

    Sending you positive thoughts. I suffer from PCOS, meaning I do not ovulate every month. I can understand what you are going through. I didn't know this until just last year. I was put on a drug, called Metformin to help. I don't know if it has or hasn't. But I am starting BBT charting to see if it makes a diference,

    You have my sympathy. I hope things get better.

    You guys will get there....just takes time. It's not on your timing either, but we've talked about that. Hugs and prayers for you that it happens at the best possible time! xo

    emoticon I just want to offer a glimmer of hope for you as you embark on this journey towards pregnancy. I know that not everybody is the same, nor does their bodies do things the same...but again, I just want to offer you some hope.

    My sister has been married for 12 years and literally tried everything to get pregnant with her husband. They tried different meds, in-vitro a couple of times, got pregnant from the in-vitro but then had a miscarriage. Finally after 10-years of trying medical intervention with no success and a whole lot of heartache, they adopted a beautiful baby boy. I kid you not, literally a couple of months after bringing him home, she showed me her + pregnancy test via Skype. She has no idea how it happened as they had always been told they couldn't get pregnant. Her daughter turns 1 on St. Patrick's Day and her son will be 2 on April 2nd.

    Keep your chin up, try to stay positive. I have very high hopes for you! Will be keeping you in my prayers!

    I am so sorry. I understand somewhat of what you're going through; after I lost weight, I stopped menstruating for a year. It happened before I even got out of the overweight category and into a normal weight range, and then I dropped way too low on body fat accidentally (I thought my belly was fat, but it turns out it was just loose skin), and even after regaining weight and taking hormones I couldn't get my period back. It was devastating, especially when my sister-in-law got pregnant after they'd barely started trying (and in my opinion, well before they were financially/emotionally prepared to be parents). Finally, I started doing hormone injections and it took FOREVER for my follicles to start doing anything (they're supposed to grow to a certain size, and they weren't budging). Eventually, they did, and now I'm waiting on news from the doctor to see how things turned out...but anyways, my point is - just keep going. I know how much it sucks to wait, and I know you've been waiting and hoping for such a long time...but please hang in there. It will work eventually.

    I went through the same thing. Tried clomid, didn't ovulate (mood swings were just unbearable I do not do well with hormones). Stop taking them after I think the second round, prayed about it (although they said I would not get pregnant without the meds) 6 months later I had lost 70 pounds and bam I was pregnant without the clomid. What a pleasant and wonderful blessing my now 1 year old daughter is. Never give up, God is good and He will see you through.
