Ups & Downs

Well, I just finished another round of Clomid yesterday. So, as Summer calls it - we will start the "baby dance" soon again. I was kind of upset because I really thought we had done everything right last month. I have taken Clomid on & off for about 5 months now (not consecutive) & I don't understand why I'm still not getting pregnant. I've been off birth control for 2 years & 3 months now. I'm taking the Clomid in combination with 1000 mg of Metformin for PCOS. I haven't talked much about this on my blog, but it is emotionally & physically draining to keep trying month after month with no positive result. I have talked with & met many other girls that struggle with this same thing. Why does it have to be so hard? Please pray for us as we try again this month. I have decided to go to a new doctor on the 17th. She specializes in fertility & I'm really excited about seeing her. HERE is her website. I have always kind of dreamed of me & my sister getting pregnant together & having showers together. We both have been trying & struggling & we know how much our parents want to be grandparents! Please pray for us & our other sweet girlfriends (Summer & Nicole) that struggle with infertility. I know God has great plans for all of us in the future. Good things come to those that are patient...right???



  1. You bet I'll be praying! Sorry that it's so hard! :(

  2. Infertility is hard!! I am glad I've had the chance to meet girls like you though. I am praying for you this cycle!!

  3. i love you bonnie! you will get pregnant. i am SOOOO happy you are seeing this new doctor. she will have answers for you! lots of tests! but lots of answers.

  4. I'll be praying for you Bonnie! =]

  5. Bonnie, I will definitely be praying for you! Hopefully going to the new doctor will be a big help also.

  6. I'm really sorry, Bonnie. I was just told that it MIGHT be difficult for me to get pregnant too, although we won't know until we try. I was upset just hearing that, so I can't imagine how frustrated and upset you must be after trying. I hope this new doctor really helps.

  7. I'm in the same boat as you. We've been trying for 4 years. I'll be praying for you. Infertility is the worst. Just know there are MANY of us going through the same thing at the same time.

  8. I'm sorry about your struggles. I just sometimes don't understand why things come so hard to some and not others. I myself have had 7 children and am NOW struggling with infertility myself (been ttc for just shy of a year). Many would think I should just be happy, I have children. And I am, but when that member of your family is missing, it's devastating....

    Anyway, I just found your blog and if you don't mind would like to add it to my reads.


  9. We will be praying for you and Jason!

  10. Hello. I too had a very hard time getting pregnant. I started out not going to a specialist and I believe I wasted about 4-5 years with that. Ater what I thought was suppose to take 9 months,(and a miscarriage) took 8 1/2 years but I am a proud momma of 13 year old son. Don't give up and I know it is really hard but so worth it in the end :o)

  11. Infertility is by FAR the hardest thing I have EVER had to deal with!!!
    I will be praying for you and Jason, that this month is THE month you get your miracle. I am praying for Becky too!!! I think it would just be the best if you two could be pregnant together!!!
    I tried Clomid a few times last year...yikes it made my emotions soooo much worse!!! It's like double the torture!

  12. I'll be praying for you guys. I had no idea that you guys were TTC.

    Keep notes for me....
    We conceived Gage after a surgery for Endo & we were told it would increase our chances of getting pg. worked for us.
    But, Hubby's had surgery on his prostate last year, and we'll be doing Clomid & IUI to get pg again.

  13. i will start praying for you TONITE! i know this's SO hard. you just wish that God would give you that little nudge about when & how everything is going to happen.
    when i got pregnant with my daughter, we had been TTC for 2 1/2 years. I went through 3 rounds of Clomid, and it worked! :)
    now we've been trying again for 3 1/2 years, and 7 rounds of Clomid later...well, let's just say i will be starting another round in 2 weeks.
    as i think about this journey i'm on, and how my heart aches, and how my trust has been stretched, i will think of you also, and keep you in my prayers!!! the road doesn't get shorter, but God makes it easier, i promise.

  14. I found your blog through Blogger profiles - I was just looking for other women suffering from infertility issues... and I am also on the Clomid dance as well. May God bless us both in ways we can't even imagine!
