12 X 10 and a Leibster Award

12 X 10 - yes that was the size of my follicle at today's ultrasound. I am on Day 17 and my follicle hasn't grown one bit since Day 13. I had a little bit of hope when I saw some 10K mucus yesterday. Looks like God wants me to wait patiently and completely surrender all my hopes and desires to him. My NaPro dr. doesn't have a clue what's happening and why my body isn't responding to Clomid when it has worked in the past. My lining looked good at 10.5 mm but what's the point? Anyway, she has given me a Prescription for Femara. Hmmm, something new to try and look forward to for the next cycle! Well, I should be excited that I have a new Medication but somehow I don't feel excited. This advent is going to be difficult with no signs of Ovulation and no 2-week wait or maybe God is asking me to focus entirely on him instead of TTC during this advent.

I am thankful to all you lovely ladies for all your prayers. Your comments have always lifted me up. I am even more humbled that M at Joy Beyond the Cross sent me a St. Andrew's Christmas Novena Chaplet. I am doing this Novena for the first time and I feel so much peace and joy. And thank you dear Prayer buddy for your powerful prayers. I have felt them specially when I feel let down.

I'm so honored that this lovely blogger - I must have prayed for patience awarded me the Liebster Blog Award! Thank you so much!

The Liebster Award spotlights up and coming bloggers who generally have less than 200 followers. In return for the award, the recipient bestows the award on five of their favorite bloggers.

I would like to pass on the Liebster Blog Award to these lovely bloggers. If you haven't read their blogs, please hop on and start following...

  1. A Star of Hope - She was my Summer Prayer Buddy and I have felt a special bond with her. She has given birth to an adorable baby boy - Gabriel.
  2. Allie's Pursuit of Motherhood - Her story gives me so much hope. I am in awe of God's blessings in her life. I have tears of joy for her 2 miracle babies.
  3. Endo Who?- After struggling with Endometriosis for years, this lovely blogger now has a sweet 2-month baby gal.
  4. Infertile Catholic - She prayed for me during Summer Prayer Buddies. It's been a while since she posted so I guess she's on a blog break ;)
  5. The "What If" Cross - She is past her due date and is waiting for her baby. Please pray for a safe delivery for her and the baby.

  1. Thank you for the Liebster Award! I hope your next cycle goes better!

  2. Sorry to heaa about your cycle. I hope femara works for you.

  3. I responded so much better to Femara then I did to Clomid (Clomid made me crazy!). I found it so much more gentler to my system.

    Congrats on your Liebster Award!

  4. Darn follicle! I hope the Femara works better for you.

  5. Thank you for the Liebster Award! You are so sweet :) Still not baby here yet...Keep praying that he/she comes soon!!

  6. Congrats on the blog award!!!
    Like JB, I also did well on Femara. I hope it does the same for you, too! I'm so sorry that your follicle hasn't progressed. So VERY frustrating. God is in control. I will pray for you as you wait.
