Haven't posted in a while...

We have moved onto Cycle 15. I am trying a different drug, Femara, this month. I had pretty bad hot flashes, but emotionally I seemed to do better. Clomid made me feel pretty bad. I will go in for an ultrasound on Saturday and then we'll see when we can do an IUI. I'm hoping we can do it on Monday. Otherwise, I will be starting back to school, and it will be very difficult to get into the doctor's office for an appointment.

I am pretty disappointed that it didn't happen for us last month. We both thought that it might be our month. It's hard to stay positive.

I had my ultrasound this morning. It's cycle day 13. I had 2 follicles - one is at 22 and the other is at 16. The nurse said the 16 might grow enough to be released. Tonight I have to give myself a trigger shot of Ovidrel at 9pm. Then I'll wait until Thursday for my IUI. I have had bad ovulation pain all day - hopefully both of the follicles will be released.

Kind of rough day

Just having a hard time with the Clomid. I've been so weepy and have had hot flashes. I'm going to the RE tomorrow. Hopefully, she will have some type of game plan for us. I'm considering taking a break for 3 months to see if the acupuncture/herbs work. I'm going to talk to the doc and see what she thinks. It's a lot to decide and I'm worried about making a bad decision.
