5 more days

Conceiving our first child has been on my mind a lot lately. It’s not “Baby Fever”. It’s been more of a yearning. I don’t know what triggered it. Maybe it’s that the one week mark past. As of today, I have 5 more days to go until my next ultrasound to check my new cyst.

I have a “feeling” that it’s decreased in size, but honestly, considering I had no pain prior to finding this cyst and I still have no pain, I can say it’s all in my head. I’m hoping so much it’s decreased or gone and I’m convinced in my mind, it has.

Since the news of the cyst emerged, I’ve told our immediate families about TTC. I’ve been extremely grateful with the amount of encouraging words and prayer they all have provided. DH’s Grandmother and Aunt attend the same church and they asked if they could add me to their “prayer list” at their church. I graciously accepted. I appreciate any and all of the prayers from friends, family, and everyone.

After the discovering of the cyst, AF arrived very early on CD12. This cycle I haven’t been charting religiously. I suppose I’ve been discouraged with this cyst. I’m currently on CD23 and unsure if I even ovulated this cycle. My gut says no. If AF hasn’t arrived, I may request blood work at my ultrasound appointment, which will be CD28. I suppose I could test before I go too…


  1. I can definitely relate to the yearning feeling. *Hugs*
    I hope your appointment goes well and that they find the cyst has completely gone away.

  2. Good luck at your appointment! I'm glad you told your family about TTC. It felt like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders when I finally started telling friends and family.
