Today I had a follow-up appointment with the fertility specialist. There was no examination or anything, but the doctor and I had a good talk. I am supposed to return on Sunday to have an ultrasound. The doctor may want to put me on Clomid, but that depends on the results of tests that he will be starting. Because I have been having more regular menstrual cycles since starting the Metformin, he said that is encouraging and might be enough to help increase my odds of getting pregnant. He is going to test the hormone levels in my egg when I ovulate again to make sure everything is okay there. And some other tests will be run. Depending on what the results are, I may need some additional tests. So the nurse I spoke to after my appointment today said to prepare for some appointments with little warning, as they will be scheduled depending on what goes on with my body. Fun stuff! But it gives me hope and helps me feel like I may be that much closer to getting pregnant.
I was reading 1 Samuel chapter 1 today and started crying, reading about Hannah being overcome with sorrow at not being able to have kids and pleading with God to open her womb. I know that God knows what I'm going through and will comfort me through my trials. I also have faith that I will be able to get pregnant if I am meant to get pregnant, in God's own time. So I prayed for comfort, patience, and strength as I wait for God's timeline for me and strive to understand his plan for me as well. I know he has not forgotten or abandoned me.
