I’ve done two rounds of clomid ttc #2. The first time my lining was 6.5 with two follicles, on estrogen patches. The second time with 3 follicles(which is my RE’s goal for me) my lining was 5.4 on estrogen patches.
I think we may do another treatment cycles, we’ll at least do the baseline ultrasound. I just dont want to continue doing what we’re doing BC from what ice gathered, that’s too thin of a lining to expect much.
so I know femara is an option. I tried two rounds of femara, the first time I had two follicles, so she upped my dose to bring up a third to 10mg, and I only had one egg. Which I make on my own every month. So I don’t respond well to femara.
I dont know much about injectables besides the fact that they are expensive. I dont have pcos, but I have pcos-like ovaries, meaning I have alot of follicles. Are injectables more difficult if you have lots of follicles?
any advice on other options? Any other meds to take in conjunction with femara to increase the number of follicles? Or clomid to plump lining? I just want to have some questions for my RE.
This will be my last pee stick post on my regular blog. I will likely keep tinkling on pee sticks(dollar tree though I’m afraid) until our first ultrasound, and post them on my pee sticks page.
Here is our FRER progression from 9dpiui to 14dpiui. Sorry about the nasty yellow one. IDK why that’s the only one like that.
and tweaked to see it better
10dpiui 12 dptr
and tweaked to see clearer.
Dollar trees tweaked(but not necessary in IRL these lines have been clearer than the FRER.)
So…here’s me not jumping the gun, but thinking I might actually be knocked up.
You can kinda see it in the pic. I can see it in real life, but Joseph took his phone to work(rude am I right?) and that has a better camera. I will take a pic of it dry when J gets home.
I had plan to POAS today. Until I woke up at 3:00am with my bladder full. I tried to just fall back asleep, but at 3:40 I lost my battle with the bladder and peed. I woke up at 6:50(Joseph turned off his alarm and over slept.) Peed in my cup, and POAS. I am 9dpiui, 11(.5) days past trigger
So, now I can only wait, hold my breath, and PRAY this is actually a baby, and not the residual trigger. Why do I do this? Oh, and my trigger was only 5000.
If I’m at home, I’m not wearing a bra. I don’t like them. I will probably regret this one day when my boobs are saggy, but I find them uncomfortable. Today, when I got home from work, I took off my bra…and my boobs hurt. Not super bad, but enough to where I can tell. Usually in my tww, I have very little symptoms. The boobs, they never get sore. In addition to that, I am a bit crampy. And in addition to that, I have six frer waiting for me to grace them with my urine. I peed on an opk today just for the fun of it.(it was fun.)
On my way to work today there was a rainbow. Hoping this is a sign of what’s to come in the next couple of days.
Both mine are in the air. 7dpo. I had some INTENSE pain today after our Easter brunch, and feeling a little crampy. And I want to pee on so many sticks. I don’t have any. I’m going to buy two three packs of FRER tomorrow after work. I’ll pee on Tuesday morning 9dpo. I know that’s early, but I just feel like this has been our best chance yet, so I’m cautiously hopeful.
I’m sitting in our work room(J has his computer, and I have my sewing stuff) sewing a romper for my sweet niece when I see my best friend pull up. I hurriedly run to put on a bra and brush my teeth, come back out and she was gone. Leaving behind a gift bag on my porch.
Sweetest friends we could ask for.
Instead I awoke to empty arms and an empty womb.
