I called PPVI ***updated ***updated again

Just to get another opinion/see what they thought and the receptionist said that she would let the nurses know ASAP and that they may have me get started on injections right away.

I'm not so sure what will happen, but in the past my body has never been stellar at responding to medicines (ie:clomid, hcg) so just taking one 200 mg suppository of prometrium at night just doesn't feel right.

Who knows, all I know is I want to be proactive in all this.

I have this little one that my body is suppose to nourish and make strong and if there's something it's not doing right, well, I'm going to at least try.

I'll keep everyone updated. Thank you for the comments and advice, it's helped ease my mind so much.

I know this little one ultimately belongs to God, it's just, we'd really like to meet them and hold them and love them.

I'm praying that the fear and anxiety I am having I can offer it up-because it's not from God.

Jesus, we trust in you...

***they asked me to find a lab that will ship...I've called all the labs I can think of and they think I'm crazy...what am I suppose to do?

***thanks again for the advice, once we get our blood drawn tomorrow and the results (hopefully tomorrow and not Friday) we will decide what to do. I haven't even asked my current doctor if they do injections and all I know is I'm freaking.the.heck.out which is not good. So now that I have my list of what PPVI wants me to do to get started, I'm at ease knowing I have them if my current doctor isnt proactive-which my SIL assures me they will be. Today, I need to relax, say my prayers and count my blessings that as of now, we are still pregnant...something that we never thought we would accomplish on our own without medical intervention.

5 years in the making...

I'm calling on two saints in particular to help and intercede for us, Saint Gerard and Saint Anthony, so if y'all wouldn't mind offering up a prayer or two, asking for their intercessory support, id gratefully appreciate it.

Praying that I will calm down, offer up this precious miracle to our Lord and also that my body responds to the prometrium.

Saint Anthony, Saint Gerard...PRAY FOR US.

Jesus, we trust in you.

Good choice in calling PPVI - your maternal instincts are already kicking in! Continued prayers for you, your DH, and your little one. Trust...

Still praying for you and baby!

A second opinion is always good. You're in very good hands. And just remember there are so many of us bloggers who have had low progesterone like yours and now have those babies in our arms. Thinking about that helped me a ton when I was nervous about my number.

Why can't ppvi ship from Kubots?

alison said...

i only had success with the hospital outpatient lab. If they dont ship at least ask them for the centifuged sample so that you can ship it out (nothing special needed), so id just call around the local hospitals to see if they will draw your blood and let you send it to your specialist.

mrsblondies said...

I've always used the lab at my hospital to draw and then shipped it myself, just like alison said.

Sarah said...

I second the hospital outpatient labs. Praying for everything to fall into place and for you to be able to have some peace of mind.

imusthaveprayedforpatience said...

The only lab I found that would ship out my blood was the lab at our local hospital. Try your local hospital.

Hey anyone who wants to start praying a novena to St. Anthony - here is a link to one.

http://www.ewtn.com/devotionals/novena/anthony.htm

St. Anthony's feast day is on June 13th and if we start today that is 8 days, but we could just double up one day to have it end on his feast day. Let's pray this baby here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is day one - how perfect is this for J's intention:

"The answer to my prayer may require a miracle; even so, you are the saint of miracles"

Novena Prayer Day 1 (click on the link above from EWTN for the other days as well)

O holy St. Anthony, gentlest of saints, your love for God and charity for his creatures made you worthy while on earth to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to obtain for me the favor I seek in this novena (State your intention). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle; even so, you are the saint of miracles. O gentle and loving Saint Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and thee gratitude of my heart will always be yours.

One Our Father, one Hail Mary, and Glory Be to the Father, in honor of Saint Anthony.

Saint Anthony, pray for us!

That was me above with the novena comment, sorry I was signed in under a different account.

Rebecca said...

Praying!!! Joining JBTC in the novena :) Grow baby grow!!!!

Lena said...

Yep, you're a mom calling on doctors, labs, and hospitals on the behalf of your little one's health and safety.

All in His Perfect Timing said...

Praying!
Like the other gals, the only place I found to ship bloodwork was my local hospital lab. But they ship it for you, not give it to you to ship. You can ship Prog & Estradiol draws at room temp, golden top tube. :-)
You've been on my mind alot ... I'm praying for that little babe of yours ... and to the Saints as well.

St. Rita's Roses said...

i am praying for you and baby! God Bless.

Catholic Mutt said...

Still praying!!

A Martha trying to be Mary said...

I will join JBTC in the Novena. I have a very deep devotion to St. Anthony and he is amazing! =)

Hebrews 11:1 said...

Praying!! The shots really are not all that bad...you can get the PIO from Kubats if your doc won't do them.

JellyBelly said...

So glad that you called PPVI! Continued prayers!

Emily G. said...

One 200mg Prometrium doesn't sound right to me either. I was taking 2 of those at night plus 200mg PIO 2x a week. Hoping and praying that you work out what to take very soon!

Jenny said...

PRAYING!!!!!

Faith makes things possible said...

Faith makes things possible said...

Thank you everyone for your prayers and advice!!! They're def helping ease my anxious heart!!!

And for those participating in the Saint Anthony Novena...THANK YOU!!

BlessedBeLord said...

Do you need to ship the blood before they call in the PIO shots? Praying for you! Hoping that tmrw's bloodwork will go fine.

January said...

I'm joining in on the St. Anthony novena! Come on bloodwork, look better today!

Praying hard for you!

Ania said...

I was an anxious wreck and still am sometimes, it's just that protective mom instinct. Glad you listened to your gut and that PPVI is helping. Prayers for sure!

BlessedBeLord said...

I have been waiting for your updates. Hope everything is fine. Prayers for you.

Its in His hands said...

I'm catching up from the past week and have barely been able to keep my self together trying to get from post to post! I'm so excited for y'all! May God continue to give you peace in the chaos and seemingly slow pace of things. St Anthony keep this little one and his mom and dad in you're intercession! Praying for y'all!
