A Gift of Life

At the most unexpected time, God has a given us a gift, a very special one indeed.

I am PREGNANT!

Yesterday morning, I decided to pee on a home pregnancy test strip. I have a very regular period but for some reason, I was 6 days delayed and my boobs hurt sooo bad! Very unusual indeed.

A pregnancy test is the only way to confirm my suspicion. In 5 seconds, 2 lines appeared! Oh my God! It’s positive! I became teary-eyed, so very happy and so shocked at the same time. Just when I thought that I’ll turn 37 and unpregnant still, came this pleasant surprise.

AimstripSo I went on to see my fertility specialist and showed him my pregnancy test strip. Well, he said I am pregnant. But an ultrasound must be done to confirm it. And it’s confirmed! God is so good!

1st UltrasoundTruth be told, I am not on assisted reproductive technology since August last year. That was the last time I saw my fertility specialist. No Clomid, no Pregnyl, no IUI. In fact, DP and I were having personal issues that our minds are not even set on TTC. So what could I have done that made me pregnant this time? I really don’t know.

I just know that God moves in mysterious ways. He gives us what we’ve always wanted, not in our time, but in His time, and at a time we least expect it.

TTC Update

It’s CD2 for me today and I started using my BBT thermometer this morning. The direction said to place the thermometer under tongue. I got 97.6 F. I took it twice and with the same result. For those of you who are using digital thermometer, do you use it under your tongue too? Same time every morning? I hope I used it right.

BBT Charting is a result of my “5 Things in 30 Days” where I had a serious talk with DP yesterday. Not all issues were tackled though. But in the TTC arena, at least I know he still wants to have a baby. We have an agreement to push through with IUI, maybe next year, after the holidays. Christmas season is such a stressful month in the office, so I think it’s a good choice. No Clomid and Pregnyl for me yet. I’d rather take these meds after we visit our doctor next year. I don’t want to self-medicate (too costly!). As I am writing this, my left hand is busy opening the Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor.

Yup, this cycle, it’s TTC the natural way.

Things I’ve Done, Been Doing and Planned to Do While on TTC Break

I’ve been feeling good these past few days. I just want to share some things I’ve done, been doing lately and what I plan to do while on break from TTC. The list is as follows but feel free to add up your ideas. 🙂

1. Baby dancing every day (whew!);

2. No Clomid to take every night for 5 days and no Pregnyl shot on CD 11;

3. For my low-dose caffeine intake, I’ve been drinking lemon iced tea and regular Coke (but not everyday!) 🙂

4. I had pedicure (which I get regularly) and got my hair straightened last week (I would’ve wanted to visit the salon a few months ago for this treatment but afraid that the procedure and the chemicals might be bad for TTC).

5. I also had facial and whole body massage last Saturday (both took a backseat since getting into TTC);

6. Planning to visit an acupuncture clinic and have another facial with crystal resurfacing this weekend;

7. Night out with friends (drinking iced tea or pineapple juice only; alcohol is still a no-no!)
