tiny, itty bitty, teensy weensy, microscopic news

Well, here you go. I'm not sure how many people actually read my blog? I updated my previous entry yesterday. But alas! Today is a new day~ Next Stop on the Gillard Train. Prayers welcome. And for now this is not Facebook news. For a while actually.

I just can't help but blog about it a little! There, that's a little. I am so happy. So nervous too. Comparing this to a movie theater experience, the previews aren't even playing yet. It's just trivia time.

Yahhhhh! I am so happy for you and John! Congratulations! I have been praying for you guys and will continue too! Keep us updated....I cant wait to hear about it all:)

Is this news implying that you are pregnant???? If so, congratulations!

Jason and I are STILL trying. I've completed 2 rounds of Clomid so far and will be calling my doctor this morning to see what she thinks we should do now. I get so frustrated, but must remind myself that God is in control.

I will be praying you and please please pray for me.

Love ya girl!

@Jennifer You have guessed correctly :) It is sooo insanely early though, and I'm a bit nervous. However, I've been slowly letting go of that anxiety this week. My first appt isn't for quite a while.

I'll tell you, these were my little "tricks":
-baby aspirin about every other day (prevents blood clots, which can make the uterine lining less hospitable and also causes some miscarriages)
-mucinex (generic in pill form) the main ingredient which starts with a "g" makes your cervical fluid more sperm friendly.
-the Fertility Awareness Method. I charted my temperature and monitored my cervical fluid and cervical position. I recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I have learned sooo much from that, even great info for people not trying to get pregnant.

@Jennifer again. Thanks for praying for me, and yes I'm praying for you!! Oh and I've been taking prenatal vitamins for a while.

@Nicole, thank you!

Thanks Callie! I am definitely going to take this information and run with it! I am also buying the book Supernatural Childbirth which another friend of mine recommended.
