I Heard a Heartbeat

In my ovaries! I know what you thought when you read that heading....sorry if I disappointed anyone:-)

Today I was violated in the Ultrasound room. My OBGYN wanted to make sure that everything looked normal since Foster and I have been trying to make baby #2 with no success. From what she said, everything looks good with my ovaries, so that is a relief. I think that my biggest fear since losing Rosie is that I will never conceive another child. That for some reason my daughter was ripped away from me because I'm not meant to have children.. Well, so far, other than the little septum in my uterus, and my hypothyroidism which is being treated for the first time, all looks well.

Foster and I talked last night, and he said that he would feel more comfortable if we waited until after I graduated to start Clomid. Not that we would be very far along in a pregnancy, but because he doesn't want me to have to stress over something like trying to conceive or protecting a baby while I am finishing school. I love how considerate my husband can be! We figure, if it happens naturally between now and then, great! However, we won't pursue any fertility meds until after March.

Another full month has gone by with out my sweet girl. 9 months! seems like just yesterday. Time truly does fly by! We miss her evry day, and hope that one day God decided to bless us with another child.

That is just about all I have to update about now. I have been swamped with homework, and have 3 tests and a paper due next week...wish me luck!

*hugs* You're on my heart. Hopefully treating the thyroid issue will be a step in the right direction. I know my sister was having frequent miscarriages due to the hormone levels from her thyroid.

Good luck with everything. That is a wise decision. I was violated yesterday by the lovely ultrasound machine to look at my ovaries too. Which thankfully did not have any major cysts on them (the cause for concern for the ultrasound). Take care.

That sounds like a good plan and Clomid has great success rates (this is probably TMI but I actually saw an article/blog post that showed the difference between CM -cervical mucous- with and without Clomid. Let's just say that sperm have NO chance of escaping the fallopian tube :) Seriously, it's like super glue!

I often read this and dont leave a comment so I will this time lol. I plan on making some homemade afghans for your angels cause. I wish you all the best of luck and can tell you personally that while loosing one child i pray god will bless you with another. During the next adventure which is what I call pregnancy you will be nervous all of the above emotions you can think of but I pray and know all will work out well. Thoughts to you and your hubby!

I know exactly the sound you are talking about. I have had to have those ultrasounds, and everytime it sounds like they are measuring a baby's heartbeat. Alas, just bloodflow...way less exciting.

Glad everything is looking good! I am praying for you guys!

Ok, I am caught up on all your posts! I've been terribly behind but in a good way :)

I'm glad to hear you won't be going overseas and will have time to allow your heart to heal more. And graduation will be here before you know it!!

It's good that you are getting your hypo treated now. Perhaps that will help with TTC!
