Finally! 2005

So after five month with our specialist (RE) and no luck with pregnancy, she decided it was time to take the next step and takes some medication. I had been on the Metformin and Prenatal Vitamins since our first visit.

So the first month on clomid was ok. Experienced the usual side effects (s/e) but nothing I couldn't handle. The RE decided that she wasnted to run a postcoital test on me towards the end of my cycle. "A postcoital test checks a woman's cervical mucus after sex to see whether sperm are present and moving normally. This test may be used if a woman is not able to become pregnant (infertility) and other tests have not found a cause" The prefer to not do this test on pregnant women, but it can be done. So they gave me a pregnancy test (urine) in the Dr.'s office and it came back a BFN. In my head I knew that the results were wrong, but I allowed the RE to go ahead with the test because I knew that if God meant for it to be, it would still be. The results of the test came back normal and when asked about coming back for a blood pregnancy test (BETA) and was told a week.

So the next week I still hadn't had a visit from my lovely monthly visitor (AF) so I went into the office. I knew in the back of my mind that I was in fact pregnant, but I didn't have ANY symptoms other then not being able to stomach the thought (look, smell or taste) of a Bacon Cheeseburger....LOL

I remember the exact time I received the phone call from the Dr. I was sitting at my desk at work, it was about 1:45 PM on Wednesday, March 15, 2005. I answered the phone and she asked for me and knoew right away it was good news. The previous 5 months, the RE's nurse would call me with the results and on that day it was the actual RE!!!!! Sure enough I WAS PREGNANT!!!!!!! I sat at my desk and cried, the wonderful ladies that I worked with all knew what I had been through and thought it was another BFN. So when I got off the phone and told them, they cried right along with me!!!!!

I called my Husband (DH) and my mother! I went back in for another BETA to make sure it was doubling and scheduled an u/s. My numbers were so high that they thought it was twins. At my u/s we saw and heard the heartbeat and found out that it was only one!

My Estimated Due Date (EDD) was 12/4/2005. and my beautiful Daughter, Jocelynn Noelle, arrived on 12/12/2005 at 1:58am after 82 (eighty two) hours of labor!

It was a beautiful experience and I thank my midwife and family (My dad, Mom and Sister-in-law were in the delivery room!) for making it so!
