Doing much better

This is Allison

Well, it's Saturday morning and I'll feeling much more encouraged. I am so thankful for all of the comforting words and passages you all have passed my/our way. It really means so much to me. And I can't say enough about Jenn's unwaivering support and just being a tremendous blessing to my soul during this little downward dip that I experienced the other day. Thanks Jenn!

To update on the emotional day on Thursday, I was able to speak to the nurse yesterday very candidly about my concerns. She was very understanding and informed me that the emotional spikes I'm feeling are very "real" and are mostly a result of the Lupron. She let me know that she would speak to the doctor about my issues and would let me know something around lunch. Well, it was 3:30 and I still hadn't heard from her. I e-mailed, then left the office. Once I opened my e-mail at home, she had replied saying that the doctor was hopeful that I would be ready next week. He said that although my estrogen flared, my progesterone dropped; therefore he came to the conclusion that things are resolving themselves on their own, which is what he has wanted all along. This news has lightened my burdened heart and has made me feel much better. Just the unknown is always hard to deal with (especially when your hormones are all over the place :))

Jenn also has an appt Monday to make sure she is doing ok because they don't want to get me on track and her not be ready. Jenn you can expand on this if you'd like.....:)

I know we will be parents either by the end of this year or early next year and I'm just so excited to get it going and start the journey of seeing Jenn carrying our baby. I know it's all in God's timing, but sometimes it's hard to ride the storm out. That's precisely why I am so appreciative of everyone's prayers for us. It's nice that others can be strong for us when we feel so weak and that the Lord can comfort our hearts when we let Him (I know I need to work on this part).

Hopefully next week we'll have some great news and we'll be right on track.

I have been out of the blogging loop for a while and just catching up. I am praying for you and Jenn. Give it all to God is all I can say. ML
