on it goes

I've been feeling really low lately.

Another month, another treatment. The hope I'd been feeling last few times with this new RE is wearing off.

This month we're again trying Clomid, Ovidrel, IUIs.

I asked for a progesterone prescription and again repeating his belief it'd make no difference, the Dr. provided me with one for Crinone.

I was asked to come in on Day 11 for a sonogram. It seemed to early to me.

My largest follicle was 12. Too early obviously. How do you get the point across to doctors that vaginal sonograms are so humiliating and they shouldn't ask you to do them for no reason. I was meant to go in today, but the husband advised not to. You see research on the internet says follicles only grow 1-2millimeters a day, meaning today I'd most likely be at 16 millimeters. On Clomid, they say not to induce ovulation unless follicles are atleast 22. So no chance of that today.

It's annoying how clinics work. So I called today to ask if they'd be open tomorrow so I could stop by for a sonogram. No response. They only have the emergency line open and that person didn't know.

So I'll have to wait until Monday. Day 15. Hope it's not too late by then, though if the research we're doing is right, the follicles should be 20 by Monday.

Also researching accunpuncture and really need to go have it done.

In good news, I tried a very low glycemic index dinner last night and actually enjoyed it:
baked kale chips (yumm!)
baked butternut squash
baked chicken

It was really filling.

Thank you so much for your comment. I love to hear from others going through this journey as well.

I might have to try those injections. I also had no ovulation on clomid. My doctor seemed so suprised, but really what did I expect? for me to get pregnant. No way! (did you detect my sarcasm):)

Hang in there, I will keep you in my prayers. The longer I am on this journey the harder it seems to me. I hope that you will be holding your little miracle baby soon!
