    So, I had my appt with Dr. Hughes this morning... Had an internal and physical. He said everything looks healthy. He is concerned about possible endometriosis and/or PCOS. He sent me for some bloodwork and depending on what my levels are, that will point out the best treatment option. So, I have to call back at 3-ish today.

    He did say that I should try to get some of this weight gone... so now that the Dr has said it... I've got to get focused!!!! I know I need to lose some weight.

    There were so many options for "what ifs" that I'm not going to name them all... I'm gonna wait to see what the bloodwork comes back and what they say the options are and go from there.

    I'm praying for somewhat normal levels!!!

    Forgot to add that he thinks I'm not ovulating correctly or at all! I had a feeling.. I've had the feeling since I started charting... some of my charts do show a temp. shift though so I don't know....

    So, the progesterone worked really well!!!! By the 4th day, near late afternoon I started some red spotting... same thing happened on the 5th day (I actually had some tissue come out) so the 6th day when it happened, I called the doc. They told me to stop taking the Progesterone (this was on a Thurs). They scheduled me to come in on Tues. morning for blood work and ultrasound to see what's going on... I don't think they expected me to get my period!

    Well, Friday morning... HORRID cramps! Friday afternoon.... AF!!!! woo hoooo!! It was late so I didn't call the doc's office, figured I call on Monday morning.... so... fast forward to Monday morning.

    Call the doc at a little after 7am... told them what was going on and they said they wanted me in their ASAP for bloodwork. Well, I got there and they ended up doing an trans-vaginal ultrasound, too. Fun fun when you have your period and it's heavy... ICK!!!!

    So... he said I have 2 options. Clomid (he originally said 150mg) and injectibles (FSH). I wanted to check with the insurance company- they said everything would be covered but just wanted to double check... Thank God I did!!!! Stupid insurance... it's ONLY covered if the meds are given at the Dr's office... they would be 100% covered. If I get them through a pharmacy (which I'd have to do b/c my Dr's office doesn't hand out meds) I'd have to pay 100%, not just my copay UGH! So after fighting with the insurance company.... (I wanted to do the injectibles b/c doc said he thinks that is my best option)

    So... 1 round of Clomid (paid out of pocket) and then go to the injectibles next cycle. Hopefully, I won't need the injectibles, but.... we shall see.

    I found a nice person at the insurance company who found a way to possibly get me the injectibles without having to pay, so I'm waiting to see if that goes through!

    I started my Clomid yesterday morning... so far no ill-effects.. I do feel O pain so that's kind of weird... didn't think that would happen for a couple days yet. OH! And when I picked up my script at CVS, I was only charged my copay of $10... hmm.... makes me wonder if I'll be getting a bill for the rest!

    So, anyway... I take the Clomid until Saturday night... CD5-9. Saturday morning, I go to Lowell General for bloodwork and Monday I call the docs office for the results. I'm praying to God everything works out okay and I actually O!!! My temps are wicked high already so I'm really wondering if it will show a shift when I O... *sigh* Guess it's just the waiting game now!!!!

    Can't wait for the BD marathon!!! AND I hope my freaking OPKs that I ordered last Sunday get here SOON!!! They said 5-10 business days so 10 would be Friday.... Just in time for the party!!!

    So I got my OPK's on Saturday YEAH!

    Went for my bloodwork Saturday, called on Monday... they scheduled me to come in this morning. So, I went this morning... thinking the worst.

    BUT.... they did the ultrasound and I have follies!!!! YEAH!!!! One on my left (the biggest) is about 12mm... he said he would like to see 18-20 because of the Clomid (normal 16-1, but it's a little early. Follies grow 1-2 mm a day, so I'm assuming sometime over the weekend I'll be O'ing!!!! YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!! I'm so freaking excited! He did say that it could really happen any time... sometimes your body just decides your ready and grows the follie by like 4mm in one day!!!

    So, I have to call at 2:30 for bloodwork...if my levels are not too high, I will be going for another ultrasound this weekend!!! I'm so freaking excited!

    I was dreading going there today... I actually had nightmares! I didn't wan to hear him say "sorry, the drugs don't seem to be working".

    *phew* I really just think my body needed a kick in the pants!

    OH! We found out that Ashley is expecting! I'm sooo happy for her, but a little sad at the same time. I wish it was me!!! I really can't wait to be an auntie again, though!!! She's due at the end of February!!! YEAH!!! I think it's a girl!

    So... ultrasound this morning.... doc said previously that we won't do the hcg trigger until the follie is 18-20... well, WE ARE DOING THE TRIGGER TODAY!!!! wooo hooooo!!!! I'm so freaking excited!!! When he was doing the ultrasound he said "now this is what we like to see" So, they did some bloodwork, I have to call at 2:30 for the results. If I'm O'ing on my own, no hcg trigger and insemination tomorrow morning.... if not O'ing then I get the hcg trigger shot today between 4-6 pm and then insemination on Weds. morning!!! Oh man am I so excited!

    It's finally happening!!! I thought today would NEVER get here!

    I kind of hope I get the trigger shot cause then I can POAS to see what a pos pregnancy test looks like too funny! I really don't want the shot though... I want my body to do what it is supposed to do!!!!

    YEAH!!!! I'll be back to update as soon as I get my results!

    Okay, had IUI on Weds and bloodwork. The IUI wasn't bad... a little uncomfortable and some cramping for a couple hours, but not bad. DH and I were bad though... we played hooky and went to the beach! We really needed a day to relax, regroup and just enjoy each other. It was soo nice... hot and sweaty (like 97 degrees plus humidity!!!) I felt like I was in Florida!!!

    So, we get home and there is a message from the docs office. I called... they recommended another IUI. Today I went for my 2nd IUI... it made me soooo crampy I was almost in tears! UGH! Also went for bloodwork but they were having trouble finding my vein I feel like a pincushion!!! I'm sooo emotional today and everything just makes me want to cry... got to LOVE the hcg trigger!!! UGH!

    So.... just called the doctor's office for my bloodwork results. YEAH! Everything looks good! I've been ordered to DTD with DH tonight I start the Progesterone suppositories on Saturday and I go for blood work on July 5th between 7:30 and 8 am.

    YEAH! Finally, it's happening!!! Wish me luck
