A different 2WW

Not sure if it's the knowing that spring is just around the corner but there has been a 'spring' in my step lately and I'm not sure why.  Could it be that I'm in the middle of another 2WW?  nah, I'm usually anxious and stressed out.  

but wait, but I am in the middle of another 2WW - so what gives? 

I'm really happy, actually, that I am in this place right now and not where I was around this time the last cycle. I had been praying for peace and for comfort and my prayers have really been answered.  I am going into this last leg of the 2WW thinking that hey, I'm doing what my specialist told me to do, (I started the anti-thyroid antibodies a few weeks ago, and started my prog. suppositories on Day 18)  I'm eating well, etc. so if there is a baby baking inside right now that's great, I'm doing the right things - and by chance if it's not this cycle, then it's ok as well.  


The suppositories are not that bad actually, so either I'm putting it in the wrong place, or I just have a higher tolerance for icky stuff. Either way, it hasn't changed my world too much.  I have been feeling really sluggish lately so not sure if that's a side effect or maybe my body is saying EXERCISE ME (oh man I've been in a slump!) - but other than that, not much to report. My bbs were sore prior to me starting the progesterone and I had crampy feelings but I am not going to read too much into anything at this point. 


My dr. wants me to go in for a blood test next Tuesday so if it's positive, then hooray we go onto the next step, but if not, I'm hopping off the progesterone to let AF come.  

I ask that you continue to pray that I stay in this peaceful state - b/c who knows what the tail end of this is going to look like ;0)

  3. I'm so glad that you're feeling peaceful and comforted! I'll continue to pray for you...and for what may (or may not) be happening inside your body. And you're right...the suppositories aren't "that bad"...and totally worth it if they help. Take care!

  6. Thinking of you of course and hoping for a BFP!!
    I really didn't like the progesterone but you get used to them. I had to take them until 12 weeks, which is what you will probably have to do once you are PG. So buy bulk in pantyliners is my advice! ;-)
    Oh and they can make you tired so that might be why you are. I never really noticed but my friend that also had to take them was really tired. Especially once she was PG because that can double the tiredness.
    Good luck and hope you can keep up your good spirit! That's great!!!

  7. Wendy you are amazing. What a great post. It's great to see you do only what you can do and control and allow God to do the rest. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

  8. So glad to hear that you're feeling so peaceful. I agree that the progesterone suppositories are totally worth it if they're able to help bring a live baby at the end. I was lucky enough to not really have any of the nasty side effects that are listed on the package insert, and it sounds like you aren't having any either, which I'm sure makes a huge difference in our tolerance of them! Praying for your continued peace and a positive beta!

  9. Wendy, that is a beautiful verse. I understand this exactly...trying to do all the right things and trying to keep at peace. I do the progesterone suppositories as well and don't really notice much difference. *hugs* Praying for you.

  10. I just saw your message on my blog. Thank you so much, Wendy! And I am crossing my fingers for you for Tuesday. So glad that your bloodtests all came back normal. I also have high antibodies and I'm also on a low dose of synthroid. I'll be following you and thinking very, very good thoughts.
