A year seemed to past in the blink of an eye. I made an appointment with my OB/GYN and she ran some blood work. The day she gave me the results of the blood work, I was scrolling through Pinterest and saw this verse.
The Lord will fight for you, you need only be still. Exodus 14:14 I had read the verse before. It is when the Israelites are leaving Egypt with Moses and get to the Red Sea. They are trapped between the sea and Pharoh’s approaching army. At this point I didn’t know what God was speaking to me through this passage, but I found comfort in knowing that God was going to fight for me just like He did the Israelites.
It had been a month since my initial blood work. The doctor informed me that I do not ovulate regularly. She wanted my husband to give a specimen sample to make sure he was healthy and started me on medicine to help me ovulate. This began the constant blood work for myself. When my mom found out how often I was getting blood taken she knew I must really want a baby. I hated needles and still don’t really like them.
The doctor had a plan:
- Kyle gives a sample. If he is healthy continue on.
- I try 3 cycles with medicine. If I ovulate on the medicine and still am not pregnant continue on.
- We do another test called an HSG to make sure my body is healthy and open for babies. If everything looks good, continue on.
- Try one more cycle of medicine.
After these four steps (which we did all of- AND had great healthy results) if we were still not pregnant we would need to see a specialist.
I like plans. I liked knowing the steps in the process. Being healthy was a relief, but at the same time frustrating. If we are healthy, why aren’t we pregnant? What is wrong?
