**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

To Ovulate or Not to Ovulate....

So hopefully not too many of you read the previous post for today. If so... sorry, it's been permanently deleted.

I called the clinic to get my prog.ester.one b/w results. From what I've read, if I was pg without medication, it would be 10. With medication, it would be close to 15. Are you ready for my number?.......................................................... 0.9
Seriously. I suck at prog.ester.one. I didn't even know you could have less than 1.0. She said this means that I did not ovulate and that Dr. H wants me to start on Pro.metri.um again. We hung up after I gave her my pharmacy number. And then I started thinking, well what the hell did that mean? Did that mean this cycle was a bust? Does that mean I am not pg? Does that mean I have to start a different treatment?

So I called again. She said that Dr. H seemed concerned as it visually appeared that I had ovulated because after the insem. he did an u/s. This showed CLEAR AS DAY the mature eggie and the collapsed follicle it had come from. He said "oh look you ovulated right on time." And yet the prog. level is 0.9? Doesn't this seem conflicting? So I asked the nurse what to do going forward. Is this a bust? Am I pg or not? Her reply was I MIGHT be, but probably not. Oh, thanks for clearing that up, you freak show.

I have an appointment next week for the blood pg test. Do I need to keep it? Well, it's up to you. WTH? So, I was going to have a bottle of wine with dinner tonight due to this report. Does this mean I continue as if I am pg and not partake in the beverages? GRRRR

So I will continue on...obviously buy a ton of HPT's on the way home tonight and obsess over them for the next 6 days until the beta. Then hopefully that will confirm in a more clear and precise manner exactly what is going on inside my very confused body.

If it turns out that I am not, which I probably am not, then she said we will continue with a different treatment since clo.mid didn't work its magic like it should have. Great - sign me up to be the next Human Pincushion. I have heard/read that those injections are the biggest bitches of all...

Grateful for:

  • HPT's to get me through this indecisiveness

2 nice things to say...:

How frustrating!

Ya know, my RE's office never gives me numbers. I just get an OK, or some other vague answer.

Careful with the home pregnancy tests, because the HCG from your trigger shot could still be in your system. I think it stays in there 10 days or more. I think peeonastick.com talks about how to calculate that.

What I really want to say is that the injectables are not too bad. Not what I've had, anyway (Menopur). The needles they give you are so small, it isn't really a big deal. In fact, I mind them less than the HCG shot, if that gives you any indication.

Read my Feb 19th post. It will make you feel better if you do need to become a pincushion. Hope your confusion ends with the answers you hope for.
