So, I have some great news, but I need prayers too!

After several weeks of feeling "odd", I decided to take a pregnancy test last Saturday morning. To my surprise it was a +!!!!! I ran upstairs to share the news with David, yes he knew I had ran to the store to pick one up. We hugged and kissed, I jumped up and down etc... It was fun telling our family! They were very surprised, as were we.

I am considered one of those fertility puzzlements. Irregular everything, if you get my drift. Needed help to conceive Davis, and it took 5 years to conceive Sophie! That required help as well. So, this has all occurred with God's blessing and intervention, at least most of it. Smile.

So since learning this information I have had a long week. Went to the Dr. on Monday to learn I was 10 weeks. Not by ultrasound. I was ecstatic! Then on Tuesday continued to experience spotting and some cramping, that has been occurring for the past several weeks. Went in on Wednesday to confirm DD, saw the heartbeat, and learned I am only 6-7 weeks. I also learned I have a UTI and very low progesterone levels. So I started Prometrium. Learned today that my HcG levels are rising like they should. I loved hearing that. The spotting is continuing, which is very scary. I understand it is common with low progesterone, but it is very difficult to not think of miscarriage.

I would like prayers for this little baby to stay strong and I pray that we will have a full term pregnancy. If you have had a similar experience with the low progesterone levels, I could use some encouragement! Thank you friends!

How exciting for you guys! Nothing stirs the soul like anticipating the birth of a new one! I had low progesterone with my first, and the Dr. prescribed an oral progesterone. Guess it took care of everything; had a healthy baby boy. Take time to rest when you can. Lots of prayers your way!

Tears. I ran across your blog through Amy's. I pray that 5 or so years from now I'll have your same story. I have Cannon,4 1/2. We had a little "extra" help having him. We've lost one since. And haven't been able to get pregnant again since then. We just keep going...and going...and we're thankful for what we have, but I can't help but to pray for another one. Our first and last insemination process didn't work. Now we're just praying another child is God's will. Thank you for blogging.
