Round Three

I went to the RE yesterday to reconfirm that I'm not pregnant, and to get the prescription for my next round of Clomid. I'm up to 150mg/day now. I'm just going into this cycle not worrying or getting upset or uptight about it. Whatever happens happens.

When I went to CVS to fill the prescription they wouldn't because they said it was over the allowed dosage. WTF? So I had to go back a few hours later after they got an approval code from the doctor. Oh well.

It's weird. I had worse side effects from 50mg than i did on 100mg. I wonder how I'll be on 150.

Not pregnant, confirmed by blood.

Up next: round three of clomid.

Progesterone Suppositories

Ick. Now I know why they say to use them before bed. All I can say is panty liners are a must.

Low Progesterone

My progesterone came back low today, so I have to take a progesterone suppository to keep it up. (Progesterone prepares the lining of the uterus for pregnancy. Without enough progesterone implantation can be difficult, or can lead to miscarriage.)

For some reason my RE's office likes to use a "special" pharmacy for the progesterone. Seems odd to me, because it shouldn't be something tough to get. I even asked around and no one I know that's needed it had any problem getting it. So I've been sitting around all night waiting for the delivery from this very special pharmacy.

Nothing to update

Going in to have my progesterone checked tomorrow. I don't know how conclusive it so, so it's still a wait and see game.

The Long Wait

This will be with longest 2 week wait ever.

Today I felt a little crampy and sore, but not bad. Back to normal tomorrow.

IUI Complete

8am we went in for JB to produce his specimen. They told us to come back in an hour, so we went and had breakfast. Back to the office where we signed in again, and we waited. And waited. We waited for almost 90 minutes. Me? I don't care so much. What else did I have to do today. Him? A bundle of nerves. Twitching, sighing, tense.

Finally we got called back and shown to a room. The nurse came in and we signed all the paperwork indicating that we were both cool with the procedure, and that we were both who we said we are, then the doctor came in and did his thing.

It was uncomfortable, but not unbearable. The nurse said it would feel like a pap, but yeah, not quite. It wasn't as bad as the HSG I had back in January, but it was worse than a pap. Let's just hope this takes, so I don't have to go through another cycle of this.

Still no line, but...

My follicle (only one... don't know what happened to the other!) is 23mm as of today, and my E2 levels are "surging" so off we go for IUI tomorrow morning!

No Line

Not a dark enough one, anyway.

This means our brief getaway is off, which really sucks, because we both really need to get out of here. At least we spent a nice weekend on Staten Island.

Tomorrow I'm back for blood and another sono. Keep your fingers crossed that Tuesday is the day.

14.5 and 10.5. Seriously, follicles, that's not the right answer. Those are the measurements from this morning, which means that we don't have to cancel our plans for tonight, but we do have to cancel our VACATION plans for Monday. Come on, man! Vacation was supposed to take my mind off the last few days of the 2ww, instead it MIGHT be just beginning, and we don't even get the luxury of getting out of this damn city for a few days.

If by some miracle my E2 levels are way up today, I'll get a call to do IUI tomorrow, or if I get a dark positive OPK tomorrow or Sunday, we can go in Monday for the IUI and salvage vacation.
