Feeling Optimistic

I just have to post and say that for some reason I'm feeling really optimistic about this month. Well I know the reason. It's cause the doc gave me good news and we now know that DH has super sperm but still...even when I thought my chances were good before I didn't feel this optimistic about it. Plus, knowing that we only have 3 months to try before we'll have to try other things DH is super on board with the BD'ing and we've already BD three times! Woohoo! I'm supposed to O any day now and I feel great! I also have an appointment with the RE tomorrow for an ultrasound to see how I'm responding to the Femara. I'm actually pretty excited about it because I want to see if I have more eggs or more mature eggs or if they can tell anything good about my chances from it. I hope I don't get my hopes up too much, but I just have a good feeling. Smile

yay Leah! It's great you are feeling so positive! Are you getting any side effects from the Femara? This is giving me hope for next cycle if the clomid doesn't work.

So exited for you Leah! I hope Femara does the trick- it's so much better than Clomid.

Didn't really have any side effects from the Femara that I know about for sure. I had a headache one day but I got a sinus infection a day or two later so it could have been that coming on and I had some bleeding but that may have been the tail end of AF. No hot flashes, no severe mood swings or anything like that. The doc said that Femara is out of your body within 3 days after taking it and that Clomid is 60 days. He said that each cycle you take Clomid it increases even if you take the same dose. He thinks that's why I had such a hard time on it. I did great on the first round but it was 50mg. By the time I was done it was like being on 150mg even though I was still on 50mg cause it's cumulative.

As far as the u/s it went GREAT! I have two eggs that look great one in each ovary. My mom went with me and she thought he said I had two eggs in one ovary and an egg in the other also but either way he said I'll O multiple eggs. Yay! He said I should O on Sunday according to what he saw. He also said my lining couldn't have been more perfect. Said that there shouldn't be any reason for me to be unable to implant. He also said I may have a very small polyp but he didn't see it on the u/s last two weeks ago so he thinks it may just be a thicker spot in my lining. Said even if it was a polyp it's small enough that it shouldn't affect anything. He said people who do this well on Femara usually get pregnant very quickly. Yay! He had four women today alone that got pregnant on the first cycle! I'm so excited and totally ready for some more BD'ing. Lol. I so hope this is our month. I have a really good feeling about it!

yay! i can't wait to see your BFP this month! how exciting. if I'm not pregnant this month i'm going to an RE to get Femara... I'm not gonna mess with Clomid and hormones and stuff. I still don't know if it was the clomid or me worrying about it but that's not cool. LOL I'm so excited for you!
