I had my baseline ultrasound today. I have been through the whole ultrasound and blood work process a lot from the last cycle, yet I was nervous. I guess the two weeks off was enough of a break to make it not routine anymore. Though, I don’t think having these appointments is really routine.
I took a Tylenol before I left just in case it hurt any during my ultrasound since it was still during my period. It didn’t hurt as much as last time I had my period so yea for that. When I went to get my blood drawn the lady had someone who works there sitting in her chair trying to figure something out. I waited for a bit, but then one of the helpers (I’m not sure what her title is, she helps the practitioners doing the ultrasounds) noticed and touched her on the shoulder letting her know that I was waiting. They broke up after that, but I felt kinda weird. Yes, I was waiting but I felt like I had broke up something they were trying to figure out and that she was a little annoyed she had to stop. Yes, I’m a worry wart and it was probably nothing, but yea that’s my brain going off into crazy land. In the ultrasound she couldn’t find my left ovary, but that my right looks fine. She doesn’t think I have any cysts, but they will check my blood. If I don’t hear anything than I start my Clomid on Saturday and then go back for my first monitoring visit on Thursday.
I went to the pharmacy for the first time to pick up my Clomid. Last time I had it mail ordered. The pharmacist who I picked it up from was nice. She said that her friend was having trouble getting pregnant for years, that she went on Clomid, and then two weeks later she was pregnant. I smiled at her, but wanted to tell her well I have already tried this for one full cycle and I’m not pregnant yet so we will see. I didn’t though. She was all this is exciting I’m pulling for you. That was sweet. So that’s that.
Hopefully things will go well and I won’t have any side effects from the Clomid. I’m going to eat carefully and not cheat. I found with my IBS on the days that I ate carefully and ate safe foods I didn’t have any side effects compared to the days when I ate a little bad and did have effects. I’m also going to take it with a little food. So *fingers crossed*
