God did hear me

Posted by Mandy at 12:47 PM
Don't get too excited.. it's way too early to know if I'm pg this month or not. Let me give you a quick explanation of how to know if you're ovulating (well, if you're a woman lol) Basically you take your temp at the same time every morning and put the info on a chart. (I do mine online, it does the rest for me) Before you ovulate, your temp is low, once you ovulate you release the hormone Progesterone (which sustains a pregnancy if one occurs) and that hormone raises your body temp. so your post-ovulation temps automatically shoot up and stay up until the hag shows. So, when I had all physical signs of ovulation, I had no temp change.. a 'flat' chart as it is called. I was so discouraged. Every other month that I've had that happen I really had not ovulated.. so I felt very defeated. Then I remembered that post Lou made.. it had nothing to do with this, but that simple sentence of "nothing is impossible with God" came to mind, so I posted what I did yesterday. When I woke this morning my temperature went sky high!! God heard me.. he responded, and he did make what seemed impossible to me this month possible. For the FIST time in the 8 months we've been trying to conceive, I felt God was with me. I mean.. REALLY with me. I have tears running down my face as I type this. There's no scientific reason for this to happen.. it really is basically impossible.. I know it was God. Even if he still doesn't intend for me to be pregnant this month, at least I feel him with me now. The verse of the song "Praise you in this Storm" by Casting Crowns always made me cry because it was so true for me...

"My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find you?"

Now I feel I've "found" him. Now I can carry on. Thank you God!

That is amazing Mandy.

Thanks for the info on how to know if you are ovulating. I was wondering how you knew that.

Good luck on getting pregnant. The mighty forces are with you now.

I was just telling my husband today how awesome it was that women actually get pregnant at all-1-4 days of ovulation and then the other 24 or so-nothing,I mean actually what are the odds.My husband and I are Semi-trying.Kind of a relaxed thought process of if we do we do and if we don't we don't except for August and September in which we will not try any longer-not until October,I can not have even the vaguest notion that our 4th child would be born in May-Not 3 birthdays in May!!!!!And I say this because I do tend to carry to 42-44 weeks when pregnant..Keep your chin up...If it is meant to be,then it will be.

That's awesome! I didn't know how to know if you are ovulating, either. Very interesting! Ours was a surprise so I didn't go through any of that. I'll be praying for you!
