How many times have I heard that in the past few days???
So the prayers, visualization and the positive thinking worked.
The two juicy follicles on my left side are gone. Ruptured. Ovulated.
I know that I was so stressed out because I was afraid that I had yet another fertility issue to deal with which would've been another thing to fix, and more time to wait.
And I'm sure that all of you know that I'm sick and tired of waiting.
Yesterday when I was on my way to the lab to get my blood work done I had a heart to heart with the Boss. I have my best talks with God when I'm driving in my car for some reason. I was telling Him that I knew that all this business about timing and ultrasounds were just another example to show me that I am not in control, despite all of my best efforts. Being a type-A infertile is not a good thing, at all.
I went to a Restorative yoga class after my appointment (I can't do any strenuous exercise before I get my adrenal test done, apparently it could mess up my levels -- thanks Barbie!) and while in my favourite pose (reclined, bound angle pose -- supta baddha konasana, the Cadillac of yoga poses AND great for fertility) I heard a voice telling me that I needed to be patient just a little longer.
Now, I'm not going to pretend that it was a voice from above, but I felt a wave of comfort wash over me after I had that thought.
So yet again, I thank you all for your prayers and support (especially TCIE who took time out of her day to talk to me on the phone!). We were very lucky to be done early enough at the ultrasound clinic that we were able to go to mass this morning (something I can't wait to do when I'm a SAHM!).
We have a busy day ahead of us. I see my gastroenterologist for the results of my colonoscopy this morning and hopefully she will tell me that I can go off of my colitis medication. Then I have a chiropractor appointment. I promise to update later, and hopefully I have more good news!
Update: So my visit with my gastroenterologist went REALLY well. I can go off of the immuno-suppressant that I've been taking the past five years.
I am so relieved!
She thinks that the dietary and lifestyle changes that I've made (plus the endo being removed) really helped my ulcerative colitis go into remission. It amazes me that I've had a complete turn around since I was first diagnosed with UC.
I'm a little afraid to go off of the meds since being sick was not fun at all. When I was at my sickest I lost 12 lbs in a week. For those of you that have met me in real life I don't really have 12 lbs to lose, if you know what I mean. My doctor said I can go off of the meds cold turkey, no weaning at all. I don't know if I want to do it that way. I may just taper my dosage while I still have some of the medication left.
It has been such a good day. Now, I just hope that the 2WW doesn't drive me nuts!
