Well I still haven't heard back about my prolactin so I don't know about that one
I'm very much looking forward to the scan and PCT tomorrow. Hopefully I'm not turning hostile and they will be able to see lots of follies. One of the things I've noticed from being on Clomid is that since I started taking it, I've noticed a slight pain in both of my ovaries. At first it was all the time, but now it's just every so often. Think I'm going to ask about that one tomorrow.
Oh I've started a blog, here's the link http://breazlife.blogspot.com/ I've had fun doing it so far, but oh my are my posts really long. Well I guess you could say I have alot to say and like to be thorough
Finally heard back on my prolactin, I decided to ask when I was there for my u/s. She said it was at 30 so at least it's half of what it was. They decided to up my Parlodel dosage to a whole 2.5mg tablet. The first night did not go over well at all, I kept waking up feeling really sick and nauseaous and I still had it in the AM when I got up, but it passed and I haven't felt sick since.
The u/s went well. It showed 2 beautiful follicles, 1 on each side!! Then the PCT on Friday turned out great, lots of swimmers doing what they are supposed to be doing. There was way more in this slide than the first one, hope that's a good sign.
I went back in today to make sure the follies were gone and sure enough, both had O'ed The tech was like now the swimmers have 2 targets. We're bound to hit at least one. I called DH to ask him how he felt about twins. He's like Huh? I told him that since both follies are gone, there's a good chance we could end up with twins. Wouldn't that be the kicker! Trying for 2 years, only to finally be blessed with not just one baby, but twins. Ok I know I'm getting ahead of myself here, but it's fun to fantasize
So now my plan is:[*]Take 1 tablet Parlodel daily[*]Start 200mg 2/day Prometrium[*]Come in for a PG test on 2/26 and to bring my AM's dose of Prometrium to take after blood draw.[*]If the PG test is +, stop taking Parlodel and continue taking Prometrium until 12weeks.
I called the clinic yesterday about my follies sizes and the nurse said the left one was 22mm and the right was 22/18 (meaning they got 2 different measurements when they measured), so hopefully by the time I O'ed they were a few mm bigger.
Things are going ok with the prometrium. The first couple of days, I wasn't dizzy at all after taking them, now I start feeling the dizziness within the hour of taking them for an hour or 2.
Man my head hurts right now, I hate headaches! And can I go take a nap now, I'm so falling asleep at work, it's a good thing the boss isn't here right this moment or any customers.
Does anyone have a fast forward button they or I could push to get me to the 26th? I just want to know....
Well, no need to fast forward to the 26th because I got a HUGE temp drop today so the should be flying in either tonight, tomorrow or Thursday. I went from 98.2 to 97.7. I keep trying to be optimistic about this, but it's just not happening anymore. I guess it's good that I get my hopes dashed today rather than when I actually go in for the BPT on Saturday, only to be told it's a big FAT - later on. Blah!
What's a girl to do? I was so hopeful, even though I knew I shouldn't be because it's just been on speedbump after another for us, why should we be lucky enough to get it on the first try of clomid. I'm really going to talk to my RE about getting a LAP. I want one, I really think it's needed and dammit I WANT ONE! My RE doesn't warrant me getting one because he doesn't see any red flags in my history telling him I need one. How many times do I have to tell these dr's that I have painful periods and every couple of cycles I'm throwing up it's so bad, it's painful during BD'ing most of the time, and I've always suspected endo. I really hope he isn't going to make me fight him on it, I really don't want to. I want this test for a piece of mind. I don't want to waste money and time on clomid, u/s, PCT's only to find out it's all been for nothing.
Well, you can disregard my last post because I'M PG!!! After my temp drop (which later turned out to be implantation) my temp went up to 98.3, then 98.5. I knew something had to be up, so I raced to the store at 6am for a HPT, came home and got a faint second line!! OMG! Then as soon as the clinic was open, I was on the phone and they said it was ok that I came in today instead of Saturday.
I went wedding shopping with a gf and it was so hard to concentrate, I was in such a daze. The clinic called back at 3:25 with good news and my numbers, HcG 27 and progesterone 69. I came home shortly after and headed for the shop to give Alex his gift. He opened the first card and then the box to find another card where it said "Congratulations Daddy" across the middle. He looks up and asks "You're PG?" and then I burst into tears. We hugged and went home. It's been interesting ever since.
Yesterday, since I had 1 HPT left, I decided to pee on it too to see if it would get darker, sure enough it's darker than the first one so that's a relief.
So I guess this is good-bye for now. It's been so wonderful having this outlet for all of the ups and downs of TTC. Thanks to everyone who's shared in this with me and taken the time to read all about our journey!!
**Finally uploaded the HPT pictures. They aren't very good and kind of grainy, but you can def. see the lines (well, in the top HPT at least)**
The top HPT is at 15DPO and the bottom is at 13DPO
