Beautiful Ovary

I had my ultrasound on Tuesday to check on my follicles. I have one really big one and another slight smaller (but still very big) one. I have never seen such beautiful pictures of an ovary before. I wanted to take them home and post them on Facebook so that I could feel like I "fit in" with all of my pregnant friends. I thought that might come off as pretty crazy though, so I decided against it.

My body is responding very well to the 100mg of Clomid, so my doctor wants to do it for two more months if this month doesn't work. I was really happy about that! I am very hopeful for this cycle, but I am trying not to get my hopes up too high. I do finally have some hope again. My husband was so happy a few days ago when he heard me say, "when we get pregnant," instead of, "if we get pregnant."


  1. You WILL get pregnant! Remember I know how stubborn Rob is and that coupled with you makes a perfect picture for never giving up and always having hope! You will both make wonderful parents! And even though kids aren't my favorite thing I promise that I will love yours for sure! I will make a great aunt ;) just warning you now though, my husband is going to find the most annoying to parents toy there is on the planet and he will buy that for his niece/nephew and have great joy giving to them, right at the perfect age to make the annoyance as high as possible. He has always wanted to do this and seeing as his loving relationship with his brother includes a lot of "haha, I got you"'s I think it's likely that it will come to fruition with your child/ren! I feel so much good energy for you Rachel! I can't say when it will happen but I just get this overwhelming feeling that it WILL happen! I am honored that you wanted me to be a part of this process by having me read your posts and blog. And I am learning all these new abbreviations and acronyms and processes that you, and so many others, have to deal with it makes me wish there was something, anything I could do to truly help! I will always be there for you when you need it and I mean ANYTIME! You have all my contact info, use it if you need to or even if you just WANT to. I know I don't live close but I do good phone convos or text/chat sessions too! You know I love you both and I am sending you as much love as I can! Chin up, hopes up - maybe this month, maybe not but if not don't lose hope, your body "responding well" to the new dose is your body's way of telling you "I am on board, I am going to try my hardest for you" so now you are in partnership with your body and not "fighting" with it anymore. You and you body are on the same page now.

    Ok long post is long. I just wanted you to know that me and Aaron are always thinking of you guys, I swear! Can't wait to see you guys!

    Love & hugs
    (your sister-in-law, I don't like the "law" part so just - sister- I have always wanted a sister!)

  2. I love you Sarah! :) Your support through this process has meant so much more to me than you will ever know. Just by being there for me and trying to understand what other infertile women are going through IS helping. It means a lot to me, and it means a lot to every reproductively challenged woman out there.

    And you are my sister! You are even better than a sister. I'd hang out with you even if we weren't related!
