In case I haven’t mentioned it before, Kevin and I are trying to conceive again and the roller coaster of emotions has begun again. We were told to wait 3-4 months to begin trying, but haven’t done anything to prevent a pregnancy since we lost Andrew. There’s just no way we could try to prevent something that we want so badly. Since I was able to deliver him vaginally and healed well, things were fine from a medical standpoint.
After my exam, we sat down to come up with a “plan.” He recommended we try clomid/progesterone for 2 cycles, but did mention maybe re-doing some other tests if we aren’t successful after 2 cycles. I walked out of that appointment so empowered! I felt really good that we had a strategy and I had some medical guidance. I had actually forgotten that I had even taken progesterone when we conceived Andrew. I had a small luteal phase defect and the progesterone helps take care of that pretty easily. That’s probably gibberish to many of you – if any of you have questions, just shoot me an email. I’m happy to answer questions. 🙂
I continue to pray for the Lord’s perfect timing in all this. I am so grateful for medical doctors and for the plan that we have, but the Lord is the great physician. He has a plan for our family, and I have to believe and trust in that promise. A month or so ago, I was reading in Proverbs 16:1 which says, “To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the reply of the tongue.” There is a footnote in my Bible that answers a lot of the questions I had when thinking about fertility plans.
So this is where Kevin and I find ourselves. We have a plan, but we are trusting the Lord with the results.
