@MrsFarmer:  Thanks. With the NaPro you start with learning and charting with Creighton method. That’s where we are. You have to check mucus at every bathroom visit, when you get up in the am before you go to sleep and only check using a folded piece of bath tissue, I.e. the mucus had to be visable when you wipe. Last cycle was completely dry. My teacher was concerned and put me on the additional supplements. Once you get a couple months of charts you see a NaPro doctor. The closest one to me is 3-4 hours away. I am sure this isn’t going to be a fast process but my heart is a peace with this route. I feel confident in what we are doing and I trust God’s guidance. Such a different place than I was at months ago. I don’t feel the same desperation or fear anymore and I am so grateful for that.

@Mrs. Pretzel:  I am familiar with BBT charting but don’t know much about the Creighton method of charting.  We are waiting until we reach the 18-24 months mark to begin any kind of testing, but once we get there, we do have a NaPro doctor (although I think she’s fairly elderly!) about 2 1/2 hours from where we live.  Otherwise, all the other NaPro doctors are 10-12 hours away, so I really hope she will be able to help us!

I know the NaPro isn’t the fastest way either, but it’s the only choice for us to pursue as we will not be doing IUI or IVF.  I trust that God has a plan for us too and that everything will work out in His time! 

I don’t think I’m quite as “at peace” as I could be, but I’m working on it.  I’ve recently found an old friend through facebook and learned that they went through unexplained infertility and were unsuccessful in medicated attemps to conceive.  They decided to pursue adoption and now have an adorable 1 year old.  She has been an amazing support to me and completely understand all the emotions that go along with this process.  She is amazingly at peace and positive about their journey–I want to be just like her!  She said that after their failed treatments, she allowed herself two days of crying and grieving, and then made the conscious decision to be happy and positive, including being happy for others who get pg, making herself smile, etc.  She said it’s made a world of difference in her outlook on life, and she rarely struggles with jealousy now.  (Something I am still working on all the time!)  She said one thing that really helped her make up her mind about having a positive outlook on life was seeing another friend go through infertility and become a very bitter person…She said she couldn’t bear to live life like that.  This friend is my hero these days!

This is what I spent my weekend and day off yesterday doing.  I’m so pleased with the result, that I just had to share!  With a bit of gravel, field stones from a rock pile by a field out back, and some solar lights, I transformed a dirt path in our yard into this: 

(Sorry, the night picture is grainy!)

@MrsFarmer:  Sounds like you and I are on similar paths. I just turned 35 ( today actually) and we would love a large family ( adopted or a blend of biological and adopted) so we have been pretty proactive based on my age. Adoption was always in the plan for us but the uncertainty of if we would also have biological children is also there. you might look into taking a Creighton class. We do ours via Skype.that way if you do end up seeing a NaPro Dr you have months of charts (they use the charts in the process so it would just mean you wouldn’t have to wait as long to stay working with Dr.) . I still do my BBT charts as well. 

your friend sounds amazing, what a great example and inspiration to have. I am also loving your new path so pretty! 

I pray you don’t have to go the NaPro route but I will be sure to share our journey along the way.

@MrsFarmer:  Very Cool!!

 

Hi ladies. Just got back from Dr. and happy to report.. WE CAN START TTC AGAIN!! (sort of). There is always a catch. Here is the plan of attack. I still have to get 1 more negative beta test (which she said I can get done when AF arrives).  I will go back on clomid.  I will have a follicle u/s mid-cycle like last time with clomid.  And i am going to go back  on progesterone on CD 21.  She wants me in for beta/progesterone test CD 27.  Yay! But… at the same time as my follicle u/s I am getting that saline u/s thing (can’t remember the name) to check on some fibroids.  As long as the Dr doesn’t think they will interfere with a pregnancy then we can go ahead! I’m going to be optimistic.  I’ve had so many u/s and things done during the past few mths that if I had fibroids that would interfere I feel they would have seen them already.  So i am going to make the choice every day to be positive and to stay relaxed and enthusiastic and I’m going to believe that I will get pregnant! (at least that’s what I’m going to tell myself). I’m just excited b/c once AF hits i will be on here with a full update!

Let’s go BFPS!!!!

@MrsFarmer:  I’ve missed your posts, but I understand why you’ve distanced yourself a bit.  I love your new path!  It looks so pretty.  I’m also inspired by your friend.  It’s great you have someone like that in your life.

@Mrs. Pretzel:  Happy Birthday!!  We’re about the same age!  I love what you said about desperation and fear.  I’m trying to get to that place and have complete trust in God’s timing.  I’ll be 35 in September so I’ve had that in my mind as this scary milestone and I think I’ve felt the sense of “Oh my goodness–I have to get pregnant now!  I’m going to be too old!” Plus, my husband is 11 years older than me and I worry about him feeling like a really old dad.  I’ve also always imagined having several kids which adds to feeling a sense of urgency.  But it’s so important to get back to a place of peace, trust, and gratitude during the process and I’m trying to get there.  I hope you have a really wonderful, happy birthday and that 35 is full of wonderful surprises!

Thanks for the compliments on the pathway! 🙂 Since we already had the gravel and the rocks were free, it was a labour intensive but cheap yard improvement project.  I’m trying to use our childless time to do some of these things that would be hard with little ones. (Plus it’s fun to share non-TTC stuff with you guys too! Wink)

@Mrs. Pretzel:  Happy birthday, lady!  We have a bit more time on our side since I’m 26 and DH is 30, although the the fact that we’re younger doesn’t make the waiting part any easier.  We’re hoping for a largish family too (I have five sibs) and would love to have five or six, but only time will tell…  Thanks for the info about the Creighton method.  I already have a contact for someone who can teach us, but  I think we will wait until we reach that 18-24 months to begin.

@cafegirl:  Aww, thanks lady. 🙂  I miss you guys too when I’m not checking in.  The milestones that we set for ourselves can be the hardest.  We’ve done that too and it just makes it harder when the last cycle that was supposed to be “the one” passes.  You will be a Mom too, whether you’re 35 or not!
