It's been a crazy week. We've been TTC for over a year now. I'm on my third cycle of clomid this month and the doctor also wanted me to start injectibles this month (follistim). It's been an emotional month just facing the thought of starting injections. THEN - my baby brother and sis-in-law show up at my house on Wednesday to tell me they are expecting...the first grandchild. It's hard to verbalize my feelings. I know many of you have felt the same way. It's not jealousy...it's just frustration with my own situation. I am happy for them, but not sure I can be giddy at the moment over their big news.
On Friday, I had to have a dye test to make sure that my fallopian tubes weren't blocked. The nurses told me that I would only feel mild cramping, but it was the worst pain I've ever faced in my life...which makes me really freak out about childbirth. The good news is that neither of my tubes were blocked and the doctor said that having the test would actually increase my chances of becoming pregnant because the force of the dye through the tubes really opened and cleaned them up.
I've been a nervous wreck about giving myself injections, but that was actually super easy and painless. I couldn't believe that I didn't feel any pain at all. I go back on Monday for a sonogram to see if my follicles are growing. Hopefully, they will let me do the trigger shot Monday night and we can start BDing.
I'm so ready to be pregnant...thanks for letting me vent. Anyone else using follistim right now???
