When a Prayer is Answered

After the scary prospect of LUFS last week and the possibility that I’m not ovulating, DH and I did some real praying about the situation. We prayed that the follicle would rupture and I would ovulate, and that there would be no LUFS. And you know what—it worked! I just love when I get to see God in action and be filled with the reassurance that He does hear our prayers.

During today’s u/s the tech was very happy to see the follicle had ruptured and the egg released. My blood work numbers were good: progesterone was at a 3, and the endometrial lining was a 12. When it came time to sit down with Dr. B, he told me I had ovulated approximately last Thursday or Friday and that everything looked totally normal (as “normal” as someone can look who only has 1 ovary to u/s anyway). What a relief! I’ve been stressed out the past four days waiting to find out whether I had LUFS and it’s been a rough weekend, emotionally.

Now knowing that I did ovulate, I’m totally overcome with guilt that I had a couple of drinks this weekend, the stress-relief kind. I seriously thought I wouldn’t be having a TWW this month and was so bummed that I just said “screw it,” and threw caution to the wind. Now I’m having an “uh-oh” day where I wish I could take those drinks back. Oy ve.

Follow up in one week from today to see whether, as Dr. B put it, I “got pregnant on my own or not.” Well, not really on my own, but ya know….
