So I’m back from my first monitoring visit after taking 50mg of Clomid. I was pretty nervous. I wondered if I would have to wait a cycle before anything happened or if I would even have one follicle. I went back for my blood work first. I need to give her my other arm next time, the needle going in hurt a little more. Then I went and sat down to be called for my ultrasound.
When I had my ultrasound I was trying to look at the screen to see if I could tell if I had any follicles, but I couldn’t. The scan itself went well, and it turns out I have FOUR follicles! Woo hoo. She said to not get caught up in the numbers yet though, it’s way too early. She also said my lining is thin, but that’s ok because it’s not that far in yet. She said that they will be calling me later this afternoon to set up another monitoring appointment – probably Wednesday to see how I’m doing. She said at that appointment they will see how many I still have and if they have gotten big and healthy. So *fingers crossed*
I’m excited. I think it’s very cool that I did well on just 50 mg of Clomid. I know it’s way too early to say anything and they could all disappear, but the fact that I responded my very first time and that my body is behaving itself at the moment is a good thing.
