It Feels Like Starting Over

24 Feb

I got my period today. Right on time, per usual.

I’m a little bummed out, but not as much as I usually am at this time of the month. Typically I spend cycle day 1 weeping in a bubble bath with a glass of wine by my side. Today I definitely teared up and took a bubble bath with a my trusty glass of wine within arm’s reach, but it didn’t feel like the end of the world. A big part of me was hoping I would get pregnant this cycle as it marks the last one where we will be trying “naturally.” However, I was pretty sure that wasn’t going to happen so my hopes weren’t nearly as high as they have been in the past.

How did we get here?

I find myself asking myself this question all the time. I just never, ever saw it coming. I just assumed that when I wanted to have a baby I would be able to. It never even crossed my mind that I would experience infertility. And yet, here I am. I suppose life just has a way of sneaking up on a person.

Well, it has certainly snuck up on me. Tomorrow I start Clomid. 50 mg. I have never wanted something to work as much as I want this to work. As much as I need this work.

I will take Clomid on cd 2-6. Then I have to go in for a sonogram on cd 10. Then we have lots and lots of baby-making love. Then we wait. And we hope with every fiber of our beings that it works. That we get pregnant.

That being said, I have a favor to ask of all of you….please keep up in your thoughts. Cross your fingers. Cross your toes. And if you pray, please do that too. We need all the help we can get.

Thank you. Each and everyone of you means the world to me….
