Jumping back in
Today I had my baseline appointment, getting me back into the swing of things again. I felt like there were a lot of kids around today going there, which I wondered if it was a sign or something. When I got there I had to pay a larger co-pay which was annoying because supposedly we had to pay off two weekend visits in September. I could have sworn we were all paid up, but whatever. Then I sat around a lot waiting.
The visit itself was fine though. I didn’t miss getting my arm poked. The scan was quick, no cysts so all is well. When I was done I asked if they would be able to tell if the metformin had worked from the bloodwork. She said they wouldn’t be able to tell because my LH will be low anyways because it’s the beginning of the cycle. I was a little surprised when it came to my drugs. I am on 100mg of clomid again, but this time I’m starting on day 3 (today!) and I’m taking it for seven days instead of five. I asked what the extra couple of days will do. She said hopefully that extra bit will give my ovaries/follicles a little extra push. That sounds good to me. So hopefully with just coming off birth control, being on metformin, being on 100mg of clomid (which let me try for the first time last time) and with the extra two days of the clomid this will be a great cycle. I have high hopes for this cycle. *fingers crossed*
I feel like I spent a lot of money today. I had the bigger co-pay, my clomid, refill of metformin, and I just ordered another shot of ovidrel and progesterone suppositories. At least everything for this cycle is paid for now except for my monitoring visits. An yes, I know many of you are paying much more for your injectables and IVF, but blech. I don’t want to spend any more money. I’m very thankful for my husband and his insurance.
