Posts Tagged ‘Clomid’

So, sorry for the terribly long delay.  I just realized it has been almost two months since I last posted.  My hubby has been harassing me to post, and I realized I really needed to do so.

Since my last post, we took that month off after the miscarriage and tried on our own.  No dice.  We did go camping for the first time which was a lot of fun.  I then had to go on a business trip to PA.  I starting spotting right before camping, so I called the fertility clinic to get my meds so that whenever the day arrived, I would be ready.  We were going to do a clomid boost cycle again with the daily injections.

After making our appt, CCRM sent me a huge amount of paperwork to fill out.  It was like a book.  One question really stuck out.  “On a scale of 1-10 how stressed would you say you are?”.  I chose 8 as when I dwell on it, it was kinda stressful.  Not enough to make me hide in the dark, never leaving the house, but I felt stressed.  The next question was, “Have you ever seen a therapist about this stress?”.  What!  I think I should change my answer to the stress scale question.  No way did I feel stressed enough to see a therapist.  That was the first time I realized how relative peoples pain can be.  For me (whose life has been relatively easy), this was high on my stress scale.  Yet for others who maybe have had to deal with more heartache, this was easy.  It was something to think about.

I was definitely nervous going to our first appointment with the RE as I just had no idea what to expect.  Dr. Blue was incredibly kind and understanding.  He started out by telling us that with our history (from the book we had to fill out before our appt) our chances of conceiving each month was like 1 – 2%.  Jeez Doc, how encouraging!  He said that with my symptoms, I may have endometriosis or fibroids.  He also recommended that Hubby do a Semen Analysis.

So, after taking a few months off of “trying” to get pregnant to let my body heal, we considered starting again. In the mean time, I had gotten a book recommendation from a friend.

She had used the advice in the book and managed to conceive in two months. Great, I thought. Maybe our timing was just off. So I started the adventure of taking my temperature every morning and checking cervical mucus levels. Man was this exciting. (I am starting to realize that since my humor of choice is sarcasm, it does not translate well in writing…..oh well).

NOTE TO HUBBY: Sorry about the mention of mucus before. It may get more graphic, so reader beware. . . (especially Hubby)
