Clomid Cycle 1....Bust.

April writing...

It no workey.

At least not the first round. Here's to wishing and hoping and praying that Cycle 2 works!!

(If you are at all completely lost as to what I am talking about, here's a little back story to bring you up to speed....http://2slicksgoodtimes.blogspot.com/2008/03/april-writing.html)

I just got off the phone with my RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist), Dr. McClamrock. He spoke with me about my bloodwork. Without going into detail, he said based on the bloodwork, my body did what it was supposed to, which is good, as that was a slight worry of mine. We then discussed the next plan...Cycle 2 of Clomid.

I will go into his office on Monday am (early...boo) to have another sonogram to check out the 'indoor' status...then I will start Clomid on a cycle day determined upon after he sees the sonogram. He did mention that he will boost my dosage up a bit...so here's to possibly more side effects.

Luckily during and after round one I only had a few mild hot flashes...although uncomfy, they were bearable. So hopefully by boosting my dose, it doesn't really boost the side effects too much.

The Doc said we will have to step it up a notch this go-around and possibly look into buying a couple OPK's (ovulation predictor kits) to boost the chances of well...doing it at the right time. :) As he said, "Being prepared and aware never hurts."

He also remembered that I was a little bit into my Weight Watchers journey when I saw him for my last sonogram, so he asked if I had lost any more weight since then. I told him, "Yes Sir! I am up to 22 pounds GONE!" He laughed and said, "Oh boy!! That can't hurt either!!" So, yeah for that...at least in the no-baby meantime I am dropping pounds! :)

So here we go...TTC (trying to conceive) Baby...Take 2.

PRAYERS are always appreciated! :)

April, You have my prayers. In fact, I am setting a reminder in my outlook to pray for you every morning. I know it's going to happen. I believe that God put that mommy desire in you for a reason.

Also, I love love love the song. It's one of those that makes me cry when I hear it.
