I finished my birth control pack on Sunday and it was a huge relief. The only thing that really concerned me is I pretty much spotted/bled through the majority of this cycle. So color me surprised when I go off BC and I DON”T bleed. Figure right? My RE seemed unconcerned saying that since I did bleed so much the past few weeks that my body might not have much lining to shed. He measured it today and said it looked good and ran a few hormone panels but pretty much said that we were good to proceed with our first official cycle with him.
Well hello Mr. Dildo Cam! You and I are going to be good friends this month.
Our plan of attack is now 100 mg of Clomid from cycle days 2-11 (yes 10 days! Anyone ever heard of this before? I hadn’t), Lots of Dildo Cam action to see when the follicles are mature, HCG Trigger shot to release, IUI, and Progesterone supplements. Oh, and baby asprin. My wallet is screaming for mercy already.
I really like my doctor. He totally lets us set the pace of things and I never feel any pressure from him to proceed a certain way. He gives his opinions, but it is in a very straight forward way, which I appreciate. Although he did break my cardinal rule today. He said he didn’t think it would take much to get me pregnant. But somehow coming from him I couldn’t help but feel myself light up. I should know better, but I can’t help but be the optimist. He did confirm my suspicions that my OBGYN was a complete moron by saying that she should have been monitoring me more closely when she put me on clomid. There were never any ultrasounds done, the blood work was a constant issue, and during the whole 3 months the only time I saw her was when she first wrote me the prescription. Other than that I only saw or talked to her nurse. It’s all good though, I don’t plan on going back to her.
So now the anxiety begins again. Hoorah! Aren’t you excited? I know I am. CD 2 and clomid begins tonight!
