Well, not only did IUI #1 not work but now I have a cyst on my right ovary from the Clomid so we are forced to take this next cycle off. It doesn’t hurt, and it’s not bad. It’s actually pretty common with Clomid. It should go away on its own, but if you get pregnant while you have one there could be serious complications, which is the reason for the mandated time off.
What now? I’ll stop taking the progesterone suppositories and AF should arrive within 2 days. Also any day between CD5-11 I’m going to have the HSG test performed to make sure my tubes are opened. RE said he has no reason to believe they’re closed (b/c of my previous numbers) but said since we wouldn’t be TTC this cycle it would be a good time to make sure. Then wait for AF again. Hopefully we’ll be doing IUI #2 in January. So for now I just sit back and wait some more. I’m going to try and relax (yea right) and focus on weight loss and exercise this month (horrible idea to start this around the holidays but what else am I going to do?!?).
Please continue to send positive thoughts and prayers our way. Today has been an awful day. One of those teary days where once the tears started they didn’t turn off. I really appreciate everyone’s support, it means so much to me!
