My body does not want to follow the "rules". Ever. While it is really frustrating, I have almost come to expect it. So when the ultrasound tech said that I have a cyst, I just shook my head. Of course I do. OHSS, pPROM, premature births, pregnancy induced hypertension, emergency c-section that required a urologist due to a ripped uterus... Normal? What is that?
The good news is that we later found out that it wasn't a cyst, just a huge follicle. My body apparently thinks the birth control pills that my doctor put me on were a challenge. They didn't work, and my body won. If we weren't infertile, we could be one of those couples that gets pregnant while on birth control pills.... but we are infertile.
I was given a shot to speed things up, but our cycle will still be delayed about two weeks. It was a blessing that it wasn't a cyst, as that would have delayed us a month or so. Of course we had Joseph's work schedule planned around these next two weeks. The end of July was really busy, so now he is trying to shift everything around. It looks like it is all going to work out, minus a few days that Blake is going to stay with his Nana and Pa.
So that is where we are. The good news is that I won't be completely uncomfortable for our anniversary. How has it been five years? Time has flown. I am so lucky to have such a great husband and father for Blake.
This is my favorite non-posed picture. We had just come in from taking pictures outside. It was roughly 100 degrees in North Carolina (hello humid and poor Joseph was wearing wool). My love gave me a sweet kiss and told me I looked pretty.
