Yesterday was the final clomid of round 1, now I just have to await the next couple of weeks with impatience and see if it has worked… I think this is going to be worse than ever before, at least before I knew I wasn’t OV’ing anyway and no chance of me getting pg!
Have to BD from days 10-20, and go for bloods on days 21 & 28.
Today has been OK-ish… I felt a bit sick this morning but that could have been the fact I had a job interview and was slightly nervous, so not blaming that one wholly on the clomid!
Apart from that I’ve had a headache again, and considering one of the side effects is heavy periods, mine has gotten much lighter, much earlier than usual, so that’s odd! Not that I’m complaining as they are usually horrendous!
Just one day of clomid left, and then getting down to the BD’ing!
It was another long wait… 1.5 hours… but it was actually worth it this time!
We actually saw the consultant this time! As soon as I walked in the room and saw him I was nervous! He’s scary… He asked what we’d been told about our tests (ultrasound, HSG, bloods, SA’s), and asked about my cycles, symptoms etc. So I told him, and then he basically relayed it back to us and told me I don’t OV, which I know already… And then he said he would like to put me on medication (clomid) but I need to lose weight first… Argh, I nearly burst out crying cos I thought he wasn’t going to give us any! I told him I’ve already lost 45 lbs, and he kept saying I need to lose weight, I said ‘Yes’, he said ‘Yes isn’t good enough’ – my GP and my friend were right, he is scary (and strict)! Even hubby was intimidated! Although he said he is strict but he gets results! So I’ll just put up with it!
Anyway, he said he will put his trust in me and give me clomid and we have to go back in two months (if it hasn’t worked by then), but if I haven’t lost any… Well, then I’m sure he’ll shout at me!
So I have two rounds of 50mg (he will give us up to 9 months worth). I have to wait until AF arrives and then take it on days 2-6, BD from day 10 onwards, but tbh I think we’ll be at it like rabbits, have waited long enough already!… He said if AF doesn’t arrive around/after CD28 then to take a test…
So now I’m nervous, but excited at the same time as we are actually getting somewhere after 2 and a bit years!
