trying to be pregnant

it’s wednesday and im home doing nothing.

i just finished watching oprah, reading a time magazine article on princess diana and a chapter of the book “the purpose driven life”.

hindi pala ako sanay. it felt weird to be home while everybody seems to be making a fuss over the allegedly anomalous zte contract. it felt weird to be home while soldiers and policemen are preparing for the much-awaited promulgation of erap’s case.

so, this is how life is away from the fast lane. this is the life i’m forced to get used to.

the truth is, i’m trying to get pregnant after more than four years of marriage.

the doctor adviced me to take a leave from work for a couple of days after undergoing artificial insemination.

 for a month now, i’ve been working really hard to have a baby. 

around the first week of august, i underwent several tests to guide my ob-gyne in dealing with my problem. my husband went through tests too.

i took a lot of medicines to help me ovulate. naka limang injection din sa akin. masakit ang injection at masakit din sa bulsa!   

then, a series of ultrasound to see if i was ovulating. when the doctor confirmed that i was, she waited for the right timing to conduct the intra-uterine insemination (iui).

 she thought the right timing was last saturday so she did an iui on me.

after my ultrasound yesterday (tuesday), it turned out that it may be a better time to do the iui so i got another one.

that is why i’m home and taking a rest today.

boring? not really, because today is the start of a couple of weeks of waiting if my efforts would pay off!

am i going to have a baby soon? i’ll keep you posted.

  10. Interesting you post about this. I didn’t even know.

    You know what? I know acts like this are better left unsaid, but I just wanted you to have the reassurance that prayers are being made on your behalf.

    I made a commitment two months ago to start praying for you and a couple of other colleagues who have been trying to have a baby. I know this is the desire of your heart.

    Let’s trust that this procedure will come through for you and continue to pray that this is His perfect time for you and Kuya Dot.

    God Bless.

  11. Lots of luck and best of wishes to you. Just keep on praying…
