I came across this on M’s blog and found that this totally describes this whole infertility situation. I wonder how many things I could actually check off. At least half of them…
I woke up this morning to a HUGE temperature drop thats falls way below my coverline on my chart, cramps, and a BFN. I guess the universe is giving me a big F U this morning. I’m so mad and sad and pissed off right now. I was so positive that this would be our cycle. Our timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I feel like such a failure. I guess all I can do is wait for AF to show up either today or tomorrow, call the doctor to find out my injectable dosage, and start the injectables on cycle day 3 for my first IUI cycle. Life sucks.
I was talking to a friend yesterday who just announced that she’s 12 weeks pregnant. Totally jealous but definitely happy for her. Anyway, she told me that she recently started to say a prayer to St. Gerard to help her achieve pregnancy. I wanted to find out some more information on him. St. Gerard is the patron saint of expectant mothers (Patron saints exist in the Catholic Church). He is considered to be the patron saint of expectant mothers because a miracle was performed through his prayers for a woman in labor. I found a prayer that is written to him.
I’ve been saying my own prayers for awhile now so maybe adding this one will help? I’m so lost anymore when it comes to this aspect of my life. I’ll take anyone’s suggestions at this point.
Well it’s Friday and that means it’s time for the Milspouse Friday Fill-In. If you’d like more information about the fill-in or you’d like to link up your blog, head over to Wife of a Sailor’s blog!
What is Tap in Thursdays?
Welcome fellow bloggers! Thankfully, we’re not getting any snow down here in NC but I know a bunch of you northerners are!
Let me introduce myself…
My name is Lauren and I’m 28 years old. I’m a proud Army wife, mommy to my 2 dogs, and a full time college student for the 3rd time. I’m pursuing my elementary education teaching certification through Drexel University online. My goal is to become a kindergarten teacher and possibly work as a reading specialist/reading recovery teacher after being in the classroom for a few years. I’ve been married to my soldier for a little over 4 years now but we’ve been together for about 8 years. In the past year, we’ve lived in 3 different states. I’m glad to say that we won’t be PCSing again for a few years. I love reading, watching movies, the Philadelphia Eagles and spinning. I blog about random things happening in my life and my struggles with infertility and miscarriage. I would like to start blogging more about being a military spouse in the near future.
Hope you enjoy what you read and I’m looking forward to finding new blogs to follow!
Evan is coming home soon, so I thought I would make him some cookies as a surprise. I haven’t baked anything since right before the holidays, so it was nice to get back into the kitchen. If anyone is interested in how to make these cookies, here is the recipe.
