Thank you so much for all of your notes and suggestions you guys have provided me. I am keeping it all in my head to discuss for my next cycle. I cycle between believing that my baby follie will become mature and make it to thinking that it won’t and that this cycle will be canceled. The waiting is killer. I was thankful for volunteering today. I was able to lose my thoughts in the chart I was creating (it came out a really pretty chart that I was proud of) and forgot about everything for an hour or two. I really hope my levels keep going up. I’m wondering now if they will keep me on clomid, after all this has been my third cycle on it, my lining is thin, and I’ve only gotten one mature follie once. However, I haven’t reached the highest amount yet.
Comfort eating is what I have been doing recently to get through everything. It has been getting me through each wait until my follie checks. I know it’s not the best thing to do to get through things, but it’s what I’m doing. I enjoy eating carbs. Two weekends ago I noticed the effects of comfort eating. My pants were getting tighter and some of my shirts were not fitting right. Then about five days ago (I don’t remember the exact amount) I got on the scale and I lost two pounds. I hadn’t changed what I had been eating really, it just happened. Then a few days later I dropped some more weight. I have lost about four pounds in the past week or two. I’m thinking that maybe the metformin has started to kick in and is causing the weight loss. I’m not sure though, since I’m pretty sure metformin is supposed to make you lose weight by not craving the carbs. So I dunno. I’m just hoping that the crap I have been eating the past couple of days doesn’t hit me soon.
Random question for you guys – I have been trying to figure out how long we have been ttc. I’m not sure what date to start with. Would it be Feb when I wanted to start trying, but couldn’t because I then didn’t have a period for three months (feb-may)? Or would it be in June when I started going to my RE for testing? Or maybe July which was my first medicated cycle. I’m just not sure.
