***Disclaimer: I am not against IUIs, in vitro, or any other form of inducing pregnancy. This is a personal anecdote.A year and a half ago, I was praying as my husband had suggested that we do an <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a>. I had been diagnosed with PCOS. Infrequent and unpredictable periods, hormonal imbalances, cysts on my ovaries. One doctor told me it would be nearly impossible to conceive without help. I recalled this moment with the doctor and I heard a voice say, "you will not get pregnant by <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a>."
I was reluctant to get one but did not seem to have an adequate reason to give regarding why I did not want one. A few months later I gave in. A year ago last August, after a cocktail of different hormones and a painful moment that involved a catheter, the <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a> failed. I wish I could say I handled it with grace, but I was plunged into a deep depression.
I started to see a functional medical practitioner to help me manage my PCOS and my thyroid. My husband kept telling me, "I think we will have a baby by August." Mind, he is telling me this in February and I think he is crazy. My cycle is too irregular. We gave up trying to time it. I can look like I am ovulating multiple times in a cycle period. I was a mess.
Two weeks ago I had a dream. I dreamt that a man came to me while I was in a dark room. He was shining, as if a faint spotlight were upon him. He said to me, "in two weeks' time you will say that you are a month pregnant." I told my husband I had a dream that I was going to be pregnant, but I did not tell him when because I had forgotten most of the dream. He said, "well, believe it; your dreams always come true." (They don't always, only certain ones.)
Today (I announce that I have taken a pregnancy test and I am 3+ weeks pregnant according to the Clearblue test.
God is good and faithful. My soul magnifies the Lord. He heard my prayers, my pleas, and gave my soul peace.
