if you haven’t read my last post you can go read that. Quick summary – nothing grew and I had a good feeling I was going to have this cycle get cancelled.
The nurse just called me and I am cancelled for this cycle. Damn. She said I had two options. She said I could try a higher dose of clomid (150mg) or clomid 100mg what I had been getting to try on but with injectables added on. I was like what happened to Femara? She said I don’t know, let me go talk to the RE real quick. She put me on hold to go talk to him. When she came back she said that I could do a higher dose of Femara if I wanted too (5mg), but that the RE doesn’t think it is going to work if I didn’t see much of anything at this dose. I was like really? Most people that I have read on the internet who have success with Femara get pregnant at 5mg. I asked if I could do 5mg of femara and see how I did and if nothing was happening add in injectables. She said well we wouldn’t want to wait too long to see what happened, but we could give you the Femara and then see what is happening on day 12. If nothing much is happening than we can add the injectables. I was like ok. I am alright with that, but I’m a little nervous because my cycles are so long in the first place. Would I see anything happening at day 12 even if something was going to happen? Anyone who has done clomid/femara with injectables have any experience with this? I’m not sure. I tentatively decided on that.
She then says that my lh levels were elevated and such this cycle and they want to put me on bc pills. I was like no, I’m so sick of bc pills. I have been put on them every other cycle for a long time and I’m sick of getting delayed. Also, I just came off of bc pills this cycle. If my lh levels are still elevated what does that mean the bc pills did? I think that means they didn’t really help that much. What do you guys think? I asked for either provera or prometrium instead. She said well there is a possibility you can get cysts by going on them, which is another reason she wanted me on the bc pills. I said I would rather be put on prometrium so she said ok. So now I have to wait an hour or so and hope that it doesn’t start snowing too bad by the time that’s ready.
In addition I had to get two drops in my eyes today at the eye doctors. I had an eye something (some big word I can’t remember) last year that I was dealing with. Basically it made my one eye blurry and decreased my vision in that eye by a lot. Well it seems like it’s back in that one eye. I may have to go back and get treated for that again. That really sucks because I remember at a point that I was going pretty regularly to the eye doctor – almost like the RE – I think I was going like every two weeks or so for a couple of months. I don’t need more reoccurring appointments. I have enough with my RE I am so sick of this crap. To treat it they give you steroid eye drops which if I’m ttcing won’t work. So my eye doctor is talking to the specialist in his office to see what they can come up with. Ugh. Why can’t anything be easy?
To top it off everything around me is baby. I watched the end of Grey’s Anatomy on my dvr and they showed the beginning of Private Practice. There was a mom who had a third baby just so she could get the blood out of her placenta to save her daughter with cancer. When the child was born she didn’t even care about holding him or anything, she just cared about the placenta. Then a bunch of my friends on facebook joined this group that has to do with being a mother. Then while watching tv shows they keep showing celebrities cute babies. Enough already. Today stinks.
