Nothing new to report.
This is a different kind of 2WW. I am obsessed with the calendar and determining when I should start the provera to bring on my period and start the clomid.
My brain hurts.
Luckily I am coaching crew at a camp in the afternoon this week through the 26th - so that is helping to keep my mind off things. and Alexis is at her first all day camp for two weeks. She is doing really well and we've been discussing sending her to kindergarten next year (she'll be 4 but turning 5 in Nov: which is weird timing for a lot of the schools here)
Which also means, BTW, that she'll be in K and Ryan in preschool when I have another baby (hopefully), so the timing works as far as that goes. I'll get good time with the new baby, alone.
I've been spotting again over the last two days. Just once during each day, enough to change my underware and have to wash them. How annoying. I don't think its AF. Just spotting. but I don't know what that means. PCOS strikes again, I'm sure.
I did relent and put a call into my Doc giving her the rundown. She didn't get back to me yesterday, I suppose I'll have to wait until monday to speak to her.
In other news: I bought a new car yesterday!! A Honda Pilot. I am so excited to have a new car! Its got plently of room for a third child, plus a third row seat that folds flat. XM radio (LOVE THAT!), leather heated seats and 4WD. woo-hoo!
Still spotting.....this is my fifth day spotting, but the color os getting brighter pick/red and I think AF might be here. I'll have to talk to the Doc today and see if she wants me to start clomid this cycle. I hope so. I really don't need another 50 something day annovulatory cycle.
Sometimes I wonder about all those wasted years of birthcontrol. Who knew that I only O four times a year on my own....???? and I could've saved a lot of time and money is I knew that. Being on BCPs for 15 years was a waste. and it caused a lot of issues with my body. sheeesh!!!
I'll update after the Doc calls.
We have a plan! The doc put me on Provera to stop the spotting and then induce AF.
Then, I will take 100mg of clomid from cd3-7.
I am so excited to actually have a plan. I have already filled my prescriptions and taken my first pill. Hopefully, this will lead to my BFP and a May 2008 baby.
day 6 of taking Provera.
Luckily, the spotting has stopped. Four more days of Provera and then hopefully AF will come right away. *fingers crossed*
So much of the TTC game is *waiting*......
wait for AF, wait to O, wait to POAS, wait for AF to show (again). Ugh! I am not exactly the patient- sort of gal!!!
I had some spotting this morning and realized that I forgot to take my provera last night. I took a pill and I'll take another tonight. After today, only 2 more to take. I hope, hope, hope that I didn't screw anything up. I had to make the decision whether to just stop taking it or take one this morning and keep going. It was hard. but I decided to try to follow as closely as possible to the Docs instructions.
I was just afraid that if I dtopped the Provera before I should, then the spotting would start up again but I wouldn't see AF. I really want to see AF because I want to start Clomid to make sure that I O.
Its just that the waiting and wondering is killing me!!!
Just making a list of places to shop for tickers...
hey. I just realized that I lost a post in there somewhere. (where did it go? I know I typed something......OMG! I hope its lost and I didn't type it in someone elses journal....how embarassing that would be.)
I am cd2. The spotting above stopped and AF arrived. Heavy bleeding and heavy cramping. I start clomid tomorrow. 100mg cycle days 3-7. I am excited b/c I feel like I am at least DOING something.
Cd 3 means I started clomid - took my first pill. I don't know why Doc upped me to 100mg when I took 50mg to conceive DS, but I'm not going to complain, but I am DOING something! It feels so good to be active in this whole TTC thing.
I am charting/temping again (I stopped when I was waiting for AF), using a fertility monitor and when the time come I wil use Preeseed.
I hope the side effects, are ok.....I didn't really have any on 50mg.
Hopefully I will get my BFP this month (with a 10% chance of twins!) --but you know what?
I HOPE EVERYBODY GETS THEIR BFPs THIS CYCLE!!!
4th day on clomid.
The S/E were not bad so far. The only thing was the first day- I was a moody/emotional/irritable monster. But luckily for everyone who comes into contact with me....that S/E only lasted that day. Since then, nothing (maybe a little tired?)
Today I got to POAS for the first time with my FM. Hopefully it will work, but at least it is satisfying my POAS urge!
So hopefully I will O in the next 10 days. Next weekend would be perfect, since thats he easiest time to BD (Jon works late), but we'll do what we have to do.....
I have a baby shower to go to on Aug 5th. But I think it will be OK (I'll be in the 2WW then).
Last day of Clomid.
I got a HIGH reading on my fertility monitor. But I'm not freaking out about it, b/c it said that they give you five days of HIGH (at least) before you get a day of PEAK. and since its a computer, in the next month, they will shorten those five days to fewer and pinpoint your O better.....hopefully, I won't need that extra benefit next cycle b/c I'll get my BFP this cycle.
SO hopefully I'll O the 14th. I've got to find something to occupy my time......
I am lurking like crazy on all the boards this cycle, and responding a lot, but I am not really posting my own threads. I always get nervous about who's gonna repond, like I'm in grade school again and want to knwo who likes me. How freaking lame is that?! But I just can't help it....so, I'll post my own thread when I O....until then, its my journal pages for me!
Baby Dust to ALL!
