CD 11. I have been battling some unjustified anger issues the past week. I think the Clomid is really getting to me. I am definitely depressed as well. Not good. I also had some spotting today- not typical at all. 4 more days til the follicle ultrasound.
I am worried about the craziest things… like how I have only made eggs on my right side… what if that tube is now blocked? The fact that we only have 2 chances left (for full siblings not to mention financial reasons) is really pulling me down.
Here is a recent pic of my little cuties. 😀
The RE nurse finally called me back. Clomid rx- check. Ovidrel shot rx- check. Follicle appt scheduled for Mar 2 (CD 15) @ 8:30- check. Dr “recommended” a baseline ultrasound for tomorrow morning. Hmmm…
1. I am on my period. Big time. U/S + full force AF = ICK!! ICK!! ICK!! So far in my infertility career I have successfully avoided this one.
2. It means seeing if DH can get off work last minute, taking the time off, and waking the kids 4 hours earlier than normal to sit in the car in the parking lot (remember I don’t drive).
3. It’s another $100-$200. For what? To see if my uterus is still there? I can assure you it is. To see if I have leftover large follicles in my ovaries? Almost certainly no since I took the last month off without more fertility drugs. What is the point?
She said it was only recommended… and I opted out. But I feel guilty.
We got back for visiting the grandparents yesterday and life has been a comedy of errors since. An arranged playdate at Chuck E. Cheese didn’t show. We met at the place our homeschool arranged for a sports group- and no one else showed. Today I started AF so I called my RE to phone in my Clomid… and they are closed for Pres. Day. I called to refill my Metformin rx and I only have 3 refills instead of 5??? Andy’s computer is messed up and after 11 days of no games he is not in a good mood.
We did manage to get 5.5 out of 6 school days finished while away- including reading Magic Tree House #6 and 7. So that’s good. We also went camping and fishing- and Bren caught 10 fish! We had a very good trip. The kids came back with a grocery sack full of Valentine goodies! My FIL is still more frail than he used to be but at least he is walking now. He recently got diagnosed with skin cancer and thankfully it wasn’t deep and they were able to remove it all. I am so thankful. We had one night of terrific thunderstorms (which I am rather fond of) and thankfully the closest tornado stayed 25 miles away.
So, today is CD#1. Here goes cycle #3!
