Appointment Recap

This was me when my doctor told me yesterday that it's time to start Clomid.

Yup. A plan! There's a plan! The Clomid should help me ovulate. Could we actually be TTC for real for the very first time in about week or so? Crazy! Now, given that my body has done all sorts of not-so-hopeful things over the last two years, I'm not getting my hopes up, but they are elevated slightly. I'm up for hoping for a period, but I still can't think about much else. Just a period will do for now, y'all. We're considering this CD 6, and if I don't have a period by CD 35, I can call the doctor to figure out what to do. 30 days of waiting? I can handle that. I think the hardest two things this last time were the backwards progress and having to wait so long to figure out what to do.

She also prescribed testosterone to help with my low libido. KK and I are both thrilled about that. Movin' right along!

At least for now. I'll take it!

Mary, thank you for advocating for me. God, thank you for answering my prayers.


  1. I'm glad you got some helpful direction and meds!

  2. Eeeee! New plans are always exciting! I hope it all does great things for you. :) Also, I saw that you asked about Clomid on the fb page. The only side effect I had was dried up CM. So I took robitussin around peak time to help produce more. Hope this isn't an issue for you though!

  3. So excited for you. Clomid is an interesting beast. Or rather - it creates an interesting beast. I've found that the smaller doses make me a monster and the larger doses are tolerated better. Lord have mercy, I have no idea why on either count.

    That said - forget about side effects. YOU ARE TTC'ing. THIS IS HUGGGGGGEEEE!! :)
