Tick Tock Tick Tock...

That is the sound of the days passing by.  The days that are not bringing me ovulation.  I have no clue what is going on in there.  I was so excited about my 2 little eggs, and now I am still waiting.  This shit sucks!

An Easter Egg????

With Easter being yesterday, I am proud to announce that I have my own little Easter egg.  Actually, I have two little Easter eggs.

After my meeting with Dr. M this morning, I am very excited that all indications are that the 100 mg of Clomid is doing its job.  I  have two large eggs (17 mm) on the left and many other signs that the big O is right around the corner.

Fingers crossed!

Here we go again

:: Sung to the tune of Willy's On the Road Again...::

Cycle #11~  We have upped our dosage of Clomid to 100 mg and HOLY HOT FLASHES!  Today is CD 11 and I am really hoping that we can have some good timing.  We are off to DC after we get off of work and will be with a house full of family members the entire weekend.  We will have to be pretty sneaky to get away for some Brown Chicken Brown Cow.  hee hee...  Good thing they are shoving us into the basement to sleep.

I will go in to see Dr. M on Monday 4/25 to see if any of my little eggies are getting to size.  Fingers crossed that this cycle will be successful. 

Long gone are the days that we have sex just because we want to.  Sad, I know.  We have so much "have to" sex throughout the month that on the days when we don't have to, we are too tired to do the deed.  I am really hoping to get past this chapter in our lives soon.  We are both ready to become parents and hope that God will bring us our miracle baby soon!  Until then, I guess we'll just keep on keepin' on!

White Pants = A visit from AF

Dramatic temp drop this am.  I knew it was coming!  I wore white pants today just so the bitch would hurry up and get here so that I could move on.  Peed in a cup at lunch just to see, but didn't even get the chance to test.  AF has made her arrival!

On to the next cycle!  100 mg we come!

Fast Forward

I have never been one to wish my life away, but this 2ww (two week wait) thing is for the birds.  If AF is going to make her appearance, why can't she just do it so that we can move on?  My temps are still up so I tested again this morning, 12 DPO, and sitting there staring at me was a stark white stick.  It is so disheartening!

I know in my heart that it is still early, and my temps still look good, blah blah blah, but last time I got to read that sweet little word "pregnant" on 12 DPO.  And according to Fertility Friend, 63% of women get a positive pregnancy test by 12 DPO.  Guess I am not included in that population.

hmph!  Rant over (for today, at least)!

The Deets...

Cycle #10 if you count our misscarriage cycle. 

I have been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and for those that are not up to par with their infertility lingo, it basically means that I don't ovulate.  You ask "Don't you have to ovulate to get pregnant?" Ding Ding Ding... Well, nothing gets by you does it?  Just kidding.  Yes, this is correct.  I have to take Clomid, a fertility drug, to make my body do its thing.

That leads us to where we are at this point in time.  Our wounds are not healed from the misscarriage by any strech of the imagination.  We are both scared to death to get pregnant again, but if we can get the end result, it's absolutely worth the risk.

So, follow along on my adventures in baby making.  I promise it will be an exciting ride of ups and downs.
