Hold the Course

Initial HCG was 247 yesterday.  Progesterone is 6.5.

IVF RN says progesterone of 6.5 is good for an FET.  They often see initial values of 2 or 3.  Since the body is prepared for pregnancy the way it is with an IUI or fresh cycle, we are fully supported by the Crinone.  I’m taking 3 inserts a day, one every 8 hours.

Occasional slight spotting only on wiping.  Slight, vague, infrequent cramping and nausea.  That’s it.  I keep discovering I’ve been unconsciously sucking my belly in and breathing shallowly, as if that will keep it in.

Praying constantly to stay in a state of peace and contentment.  If this baby is part of God’s plan, it will come to be, whatever symptoms I have or how much Crinone I take. 

Oh Lord, help me to focus on You.  Your plan is perfect.

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus,

Look full in His wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace.”
