Finally a positive update! I took progesterone 3 months ago to test my estrogen situation- and it did induce a period! And then 52 days later, another period on my own! And now I’ve had a 25 day cycle. It has been over a year since I went off birth control and discovered a was no longer normal, so that’s such a relief.

The thing that sucks is I was ready to have a baby like, yesterday, and to know it will probably still be a year or more until that happens is sad. I looked into adoption, and it sounds like a lot more work and worry and waiting than I had ever thought. I’m not even sure if I’m ovulating, and if I get preggos, it’s not guaranteed my pituitary tumor won’t grow and cause problems, or that I won’t need MRI’s to monitor it, which are NOT good for babies!

I think we’re going to go all three directions-

1. Get licensed to adopt through foster care if a healthy infant or toddler becomes available (very rare)

2. Get licensed to adopt a healthy infant through an agency (a local one and a national one to up our chances)

3. Not necessarily try to get preggos, but also not do anything to prevent it. If I say I’m trying, I’m going to nonstop be stressed out every month it doesn’t happen. And also worry about what could possibly happen (even though doc says it will prob be ok) if I do get preggos.

Wish me luck!

How’s it going with you, Weddingobsessed?

Weddingobsessed:  Congratulations!! I haven’t checked this post in 5 months- I hope the pregnancy is still going well!!

We just got news a week ago that WE’RE EXPECTING AS WELL! We were shocked! So at just 6 weeks I am still terrified of having a miscarriage, but we’re cautiously excited. We are praying for a healthy and uneventful pregnancy too. 🙂

The tumor will be monitored for now (through blood tests), and if my prolactin levels get too high, I can be put on an FDA-approved-for-pregnancy drug.

Weddingobsessed:  I hear you sister!! I have a similar situation.  However, did you only take provera?  Did your doctor give you anything to stimulate ovulation, like clomid or letrozole?  When I took the provera, it took a while to get my period so I was convinced my body has no interest in making babies (despite picture perfect bloodwork and ultrasounds), but it wasn’t until I added letrozole did I get a confirmed ovulation (I could have been O before, but didn’t pick it up on the OPK wondfo strips- ps i hate those!).   Also- try the digital OPKs?  Much less room for interpretation! 🙂
