To Love a Rose: An Ethiopian Adoption Journal

I am pleased to say that this cycle has been completely "normal".  I did, officially, ovulate on CD 14 (possibly the first time ever in my life!) with the help of nothing but prayer, diet, exercise, and acupuncture.  I feel amazing!

On CD 15, I started natural, Source Naturals Natural Progesterone Cream, 4 Ounce (113.4 g) (stripped out of soy plants).  I use 1/4 teaspoon twice a day.  I had always wondered if my progesterone levels were causing any fertilized eggs to not be able to implant properly.

I have no clue what to expect, but I'm feeling so hopeful about this cycle.  I just am blown away by God's ability to heal our bodies.  I know that people don't always get their prayers for healing answered; so, I am feeling incredibly blessed that God is doing this for me!

We had a GREAT, 4-hour practice with our band last night for our September 10th hometown show.  I know this show is going to rock!  I'm just so grateful for all of the wonderful things happening in my life right now.  Things are definitely looking up...they're actually completely "normal". :-)



  1. That's wonderful about your "normal" cycle!
