Sorry if I get your names wrong at first. Danielle, I think it was you who asked if I tried any meds yet. I haven't tried anything yet. It's been slow for us this year. We finished all of our testing with an RE in the fall, but when it came time to figuring out what to do, we felt like we were being pushed to make a decision we weren't ready for. Then, my DH did some research and we found an RE that is highly rated and not far away...but with this came a two month wait for an appointment. We were all set to go with IUI this cycle, but my DH got a job promotion and had to travel the week of O. That was a great thing, but bad timing! We could have frozen the sample in advance but figured we waited this long, what's another month?!?!
Anyway, I have a prescription for clomid and a trigger shot waiting for me. Today is CD 18 I think. I have a pretty short cycle. I typically O on CD 13, and once or twice as early as CD 11. They are going to have me come in on CD 10 just in case.
I keep thinking something really strange. My mom actually used clomid to get pregnant with me. (I was first). She then went on to easily get pregnant with my 4 siblings. I wonder if there is any correlation between babies conceived with clomid and infertility where clomid did the trick?! Wouldn't that be crazy? My mom took clomid when it was a new drug. I think it just came on the market.
Anyway, I'm really trying to stay positive and stress free. In addition to the stresses of TTC, I've had a really stressful year at work, and I'm trying to let go of any stressors, but I'm a type-A personality and it's really hard.
I started doing some yoga for fertility, and I hurt my neck! That's how tightly wound I am!
A good friend of mine said something to me about God's timing. I'm not a religious person, but if I think about if I had gotten pregnant when I first started trying, I wouldn't have decided to go back to school to get my master's degree. That might sound weird, but maybe there is a plan? Now, I'm almost a year into the program and I feel like I could handle the demands and a child. I don't think I could have said that a couple of months ago. It makes me wonder how many people look back on their struggles ttc and say, "Yeah, it was supposed to happen like this or at this time."
