Lucky number 13?

Today, after taking Provera for 5 days I finally started my period!!! Never have I been so happy to see AF, but I’m just so happy to put an end to this cycle from hell (a whopping 54 days). Since AF finally showed today is CD1 of cycle 13 since we started TTC. This cycle we’ll be doing our first IUI, if the “magic time” falls while R is still in town! Really hope our timing is okay this month and he won’t be out of town (he’s leaving Nov 9th). I’m anxious to get started!

I’m excited and nervous all at the same time! Our RE wants R to continue taking Clomid (25mg/daily), he said although we’ve decided not to wait the full 90 days to see if it helps his sperm count it definitely couldn’t hurt! For me he’s prescribed Clomid (100mg/daily) for CD5-9, then I have an ultrasound scheduled for CD14 (Nov 5th). Continue reading

First time taking Provera

My RE finally called in my prescription for Provera Friday night, and I started taking it Saturday, today is day 3. I’m taking 1 pill/day for 10 days and AF should come visit anytime now…or as late as a few days after my last dose. If I haven’t started within 14 days I’m to call the RE and he wants to see me. The only side effect I’ve noticed is severe breast tenderness, which is annoying! If it were a pregnancy symptom I don’t think it would piss me off as much, but b/c it’s just b/c of the medicine it irritates me, lol. Continue reading

CD47 ultrasound

Well, today is CD47 for me! I haven’t taken a HPT since Friday (CD43), just didn’t want to waste any more money tests or get my hopes up unnecessarily.

This afternoon I went into my RE’s office for an ultrasound since I’m so late. My doctor is out of town until Friday, so I just met with the RN/ultrasound tech today and she performed a transvaginal ultrasound. I’m definitely not pregnant, and there doesn’t appear to be any “problem” or reason why I haven’t started by now. Continue reading
