Well, I rang the doctor’s office this morning… and the message I got from the doctor was “Congratulations, and you can make an appointment with Dr. X. Dr X. is the obstetrician my GP recommended. I’m all booked in for 22 December. Wow.
I am pregnant!!
I’ve been TTC for quite a while now. In fact we started trying to get pregnant in February or March this year. But it hasn’t been a happy or eventful journey.
After months of trying, but not very many cycles, I went to the doctor’s for blood tests, and was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS from here-on in). I was pretty devestated by this news. After about a week of weighing up the different options available to me I decided that diet would be the first thing that I would try to rectify the problem. PCOS can be weight related.
I decided to use the sugar science diet by Dr. John Ratcliffe, and so pretty much cut sugar and all high carb foods from my diet. It was not easy… but it looks like it might have been worth it.
Today I’ve been to the doctor’s and he has told me that I am most likely pregnant!
Let’s go back a couple of weeks. Ovulation finally took place on the 2nd of November. When it comes to taking home pregnancy tests I am extremely weak. I think it was by 9 days past ovulation that I finally caved in and tested… and there was a faint positive. I have once before had a false positive… so I went out and bought a different brand… faint positive.
The next day I went to the doctors and had my first blood test, but the results came back “equivocal” meaning they couldn’t tell if I was pregnant or not. Of course this was very frustrating, and I had to wait ’til today to have another test.
This morning before I went to the doctor’s surgery I took another pregnancy test. This time it came up postive immediately, I didn’t even have to wait the 1 – 3 minutes for the second line to come up. And the doctor said that I didn’t really have to have a blood test, but we did one anyway. I’ll get the results tomorrow.
After so long waiting, I can’t believe that this could finally be happening. Stick in there little bean. Stick tight.
Well, I haven’t been very good again. *sigh* Actually I’ve been using diaryland, but with about as much success. And I really felt like writing an entry but I can’t seem to get my diaryland site to come up. I can make the entry but then not view it. Therefore I thought I shouldn’t put my urge to write an entry to waste……. and here we are.
Things have been going really well for us. We’ve bought a house. Can’t wait to move. Husband passed his PhD wonderfully, and has since been offered a five year research only position, which is exactly what he wanted. God has been very good to us.
In other news we are now officially TTC, and I’m very excited about this. I wonder how long it will take. Patience is a virtue grasshopper.
So much for keeping an online journal… I have been slack haven’t I. Well I’m back again. Let’s see how it goes this time.
Weekend was good. My parents had a garage sale, and I helped out. I managed to get very sunburnt knees. I do not understand how one obscure part of the body can get burnt like that. The pain, I haven’t been sunburnt for years. Well, I guess it was a good reminder for me why getting sunburnt is bad.
Absolutely could not get out of bed this morning. Well, I spose that can’t be true, coz here I am, and I’m not in bed. Nothing majorly exciting to report. Just another working day.
I am about to enter the blogging world… but first I gotta go home
