This is the first time I am trying to blog through my email account so I hope this will go well.
Just got a call back from the nurse. Negative as I knew. She said I did ovulate though, which is good. She asked me what I had talked to my RE about as far as next cycle steps. I was like uhm, I guess we were going to do another injectable. We didn’t really talk about what to do after the first cycle. I know that things can change once they see how you do on one cycle of injectables. I was like shouldn’t you be telling me what my next step is? Didn’t sound like she wanted to put me on bc pills though. She didn’t seem too worried in that they could only see my ovary that one time. She said that even though they couldn’t see it they could see my estrogen rising nicely and could tell when I was going to ovulate so they didn’t miss anything.
She said that she would have someone call me tomorrow as far as setting up my baseline. I am not sure why she couldn’t do it over the phone then. I will probably have it wednesday morning. She also said that she would talk to my RE today and get back to me tomorrow as far as to what he thinks the next steps should be. I think it will probably be Follistim and even the same amount, I’m not sure. I would just like to have him say what amount then guess to having the exact same thing as last time.
I’m actually doing ok. I’m sad in that I have to keep doing this over and over and now I have another month to inject myself in the stomach and have another 2ww. Though the Follistim didn’t treat me that bad. Period is in full force, with cramps and heavy flow so I guess that’s good. I have the thought that we are coming up on one full year of cycling with my RE soon in my head. I started with him in June and I think my first Clomid cycle started in July. I know that a bunch of you guys have been trying for a long time, but have you guys been cycling with your RE for over a year? Didn’t help that when I walked back to my office after the phone call I saw a hugely pregnant woman obviously near the first stages of labor.
Tonight I am going out with the hubby to Red Robin where I am giong to eat everything a burger and french fries. I also bought some great chocolate chip cookies to have after she called me so I can have them now. Thank you all for your support in twitters, emails, comments etc. It means so much to me and I couldn’t have gotten through this with out you.
