Ultrasound update! March 21st, 2012

If you're a "fan" on facebook you already know done of this info.  I was very nervous sitting in the doctors waiting room because I don't think I had any real symptoms from Clomid.  I wasn't sure if that meant that I wasn't growing a follicle.  They called me into the examination room where I waited even longer and I gradually got more nervous (Seriously I was sweating bullets!). The doctor came in, sweet as always, asked me a couple questions and got down to business.  First he measured my lining, 11.8, and he said that looked great (I'm still drinking Pom Juice and Raspberry leaf tea).  Then my real fears were knocked out of existence when the doctor moved the transducer to the right side of my abdomen.  There it was, bigger than any I've ever seen! A nice fat follicle! 24mm! My doctor said, "oh that's a good size," and I immediately let out a small cry of joy.  He then said we don't want it to get any bigger, so he immediately prescribed Ovidrel to trigger ovulation.  My ultrasound is scheduled for Friday at 10 am...wish me luck!

P.S. None of the follies on the left had any substantial size.

No side effects for me with 50 mg of Clomid!

I honestly do not think I experienced any Clomid side effects, other than the occasional warm feeling... I'm chalking that up to changes in Vegas temperature.  No moodiness at all! my wife lucked out lol! Ultrasound on Wednesday...I'm hoping for at least 1 follie... fx

Cycle day 2 of first medicated IUI cycle

My period started off strange, not much pain yesterday but definitely full flow. I normally have a lot of clotting but none yesterday. Today I have a bit but still not my normal painfully huge clots. (TMI!!) I may just be emotional, but I miss my old doctor's assistant.  She was so friendly! The girl I work with now, although nice, just isn't as warm with her words.  You know when you connect with someone in the doctor's office it just makes this process a whole lot easier. Oh well, at least I have my YT friends!
I will update on clomid later!

Where is AF?

I have no signs that she is approaching.  I'm very confused since the Provera was supposed to jump start this cycle.  If she doesn't come soon I will start to think that it wasn't even necessary to take.  Meanwhile I've ben trying to keep myself busy working on editing this webseries my wife and I created.  I'm super nervous because we have an interview with Film Warz tomorrow.  I mean, what if I stutter or answer the questions less creative than I'd like? Hopefully I can get over my fears by tomorrow!  If anyone is interested on the series the url is, I hope you like it!

Feb. 27 Ultrasound

OK I got some news that I never expected to hear. I would have never imagined that I would be experiencing infertility issues. Although I watch many videos on YouTube, and I know how common it is.  It's still not something you imagine can happen to you.  I found out Monday, February 27th 2012, that I was not ovulating this cycle.  Although I had the pain that I normally associate with ovulation, my ultrasound showed minor sized follicles on a day that should have shown larger "bubbles."  Dr. Fisch ordered a blood test and it confirmed that I had not ovulated early. So we are starting over with a medicated cycle.  I'm taking Provera to start my cycle, and when that starts I will start Clomid.  Wow, I thought being a lesbian would be my only obstacle.  I've been staying positive though, because I know our situation could be worse. 

P.S. Psychic was wrong!
