Last month, I got a piece of positive news. I ovulated and the number looked great. This past Sunday, I held a baby boy. He was 6 months old and perfect. I haven't been able to hold baby boys since Atticus. I stay away, usually. It hurts too much, to have this reminder that that's what you should have. I felt like things were finally looking up and we were all set to try again in October. Then, I got the dreaded call today with those words "You didn't ovulate." It makes you feel like a failure. I'm supposed to procreate. That's what's supposed to happen. So why is my body being so difficult?! They can't find a reason. I don't have anything wrong with me. I just don't create enough progesterone. I started taking some vitamins that seemed to be helping. I try so hard to remember them, but sometimes I forget. I am really hoping that's all it was. That I just forgot one too many times, and I didn't ovulate because of it. We don't even want to try until October. I have to get tested every month to see if I ovulate. Once I have 3 months of positive results, I will be considered "normal". I'm holding on to hope that maybe it was just an off month. That's what we have, a glimmer of hope. That one positive ovulation test, that time I was able to hold a baby. All signs that this is not over for us.
