Meet my new best friend-

I'm only alive and breathing right now because of my sweet sinus rinse bottle. I can't tell if it's allergies or a cold but my nose is CLOGGED. So gross. Because of the infertility treatment, I haven't taken any medicine so I don't interfere whatever it is my body is doing. I'm not sure it would really harm anything at this point but I just assume "better safe than sorry." The sinus rinse really helps me anyway because I have a slight deviated septum so it keeps me from getting a sinus infection which I'm about 96% certain are from the Devil.

Chris had a tournament this weekend and the Freshman did AMAZING! 3-0 BABY! The weather was gorgeous and despite the fact I couldn't breathe through my nose, I loved every minute of it. Bring on baseball season!!

Doctor Update

I went to the doctor on Thursday and had good news...I had a nice big follicle in my right ovary ready to release an egg! The doctor went ahead and gave me a trigger shot and told me and Chris to try naturally for the next 3 days. The Novarel shot didn't hurt but I'm SUPER sore at the injection site today. Hope this works so I don't have to do that again!

After that I had to get blood drawn from the BloodCorp downstairs from the doctor. Let me tell you, I'm a BABY!!! The nurse took 2 tubes and I LITERALLY almost passed out. I'm talking stood up, had to sit back down, and then had to LAY down because the room was spinning. Maybe this is why I'm not getting in the world will I handle child labor if I can't give blood??? Iy ya ya....

Alright y'all, you know the drill....pray, pray, PRAY. I know God has a plan for a baby Crowder and we're hoping that it's now!

You Won't Relent (Seal)

I'm COMPLETELY obsessed with this song right now. What an amazing description of God's love for us.

Awesome, huh??

Time for Treatment #1 (and hopefully ONLY!) cycle has begun. I'm going in the next day or two for my first ultrasound (to make sure I'm producing eggs) and I begin Clomid Tuesday. After my round of Clomid, I'll go back in to check on my follicles and have and HCG shot to release the eggs. Chris and I will work hard (wink wink!) the next few days and then go back for a progesterone count in about 3 weeks. Prayer warriors, PLEASE pray! Not knowing why we aren't getting pregnant is SOOOO frustrating and it would be a gift from God for this to work our first try. We have been trying to have a baby for 28 MONTHS and are in need of some good news. Chris and I greatly appreciate the prayers and now that the Lord has a big plan for a future baby Crowder!

*****CORRECTION****** My doctor decided against Clomid and put me on Femera. I've read lots of success stories about Femera-especially loving the fact it doesn't thin the uterine lining like Clomid. Since we have low progesterone (which is what thickens the uterine lining), I really can't afford it to be thin! I go back for a second ultrasound February 25th so pray for BIG follicles/eggs to come!
