Update Time!

I guess it is time for an update. I know you were all sitting at the edge of your seat to hear one.

No, I am not pregnant. We were hoping, then all the cousins would have a birthday in January, and how much fun would that have been?

My levels did go up, Praise God! I still have to take clomid though because we all know without it, they wouldn't be where they need to be.

Once again, it was another heartache, another pity party for the Richards! I just wish I knew why we were chosen to go down this path.

The hardest thing I think for me is we have now started month 3. Our window of opportunity is 3-6 months. I am freaking out that we are halfway there. I don't know what will happen if we reach the 6th month and we are still not pregnant. My doctor told me that after 6 months we were pretty much a lost cause unless we want to do In Vitro (IVF) which is about $15,000. So we don't see that in our future unless we win the lottery. So, I just hope and pray that God will bless us before it gets to that point.

My husband has been amazing! I know it is so hard on him to watch me suffer month after month after month. As hard as I try to not cry or get upset, it always happens when he holds me and just says "It's OK, I love you!" It's crazy how just those few small words are the biggest support you could ask for. I try to be there for him too, I know this can't be easy for him either. I am just thankful to have a husband that loves me, cares for me, and makes me feel better. At least I can say God blessed me with the most amazing man!!!!!!!

Blood work Sat

I go in Saturday morning to have blood work. The doctor will be checking my levels and see if they have gone up, which they should since I took Clomid. The next 2 weeks are the hardest weeks. The first part of the cycle month goes so fast, taking meds, going to the doctor, OPK, there seems to always be something we are having to do. The last 2 weeks, we just sit and wait and go get blood work at 8 DPO. Then we wait another week for either AF or a BFP! I am hoping for a BFP! I will update you once we get our results front the blood work!
