An update.

I am currently ovulating…allegedly. It’s been 36 hours since we triggered. Also, I did a VLOG about my follicle scan, but realized I never did a written blog.

If you recall, we had decided to go all in this month. My RE upped my Femara to 10mg, hoping to pull up a third follicle. I was also put on metformin. I’ve been eating lower carb, drinking green tea, using cooking oils as lube. And we were going to try IUI if everything looked good.

My follie scan was Wednesday at 10am. My lining was 7.5mm(!) no cervical mucus was seen, BUT I wasn’t taking my expectorant as I should have been. I only have one mature follicle, on my left ovary, it was about a 19. My right ovary had a follicle about 13. I was super disappointed. The point of IUI is to have more eggs, and more sperm. But since we didn’t have more eggs, we decided to not do the IUI and waste the money. So we triggered Thursday morning in the 6 o’clock hour. So I’m probably ovulating, or really freaking close. If today is O day, we bd’d o-1 and o-3. We may go again tonight, we’ll have to wait and see.

In other news, Joseph and I were just discussing that we need to come up with a way to make more money. Because either way we look to expand our family(fertility treatments or adoption) cost a lot. And within three days, I have had two job opportunities.

I was contacted Wednesday I believe by a friend who currently does Foster care wanting to know if I would watch her two boys three days a week. I talked to Joseph and accepted, and am set to start Monday. Today driving home from my friend A’s house, I got a phone call from a sweet friend and there is a math opening at her school. She teaches at a good high school in the county I would like to get a job in. So I’m stuck. I went ahead an emailed the principal, and if he emails me saying he wants to set up an interview, I’ll tell my friend.

Its difficult.

Here’s my pros and cons list.




You have been neglected wordpress. I am so terribly sorry. I just haven’t felt like doing anything on the computer. Seriously, I haven’t been posting on the forum like I normally do either. I’m just in a weird place. I’m trying not to let this whole FTC(failing to conceive) thing dominate my life. I started reading a book. I’m sleeping(a lot Smile.) I’m needy more so than ususal. I’m just in a weird place. For those of your who didn’t watch my last vlog (RUDE!) we are planning on doing IUI this cycle if everything is perfect. Meaning I have three follicles and a lining of 7mm or fluffier. I am also going to ask my RE about a SHG. Jena over at Someday Mama recently had an SHG, after already having an HSG done, and they found a polyp. So I began researching, and apparently SHG’s can be more telling when it come to fibroids and polyps. My mom has fibroids(although it didn’t keep her from birthing a million children, how unfair!) so I’m going to ask my RE if maybe, some of the further testing we can do in 2015 can include an SHG. Follicle scan Wednesday. I’ll let you know!
