Well it has been about 3 weeks since my last infertilty update and I am afraid I don't have much to post. I was sure that AF was on her way the last time I posted but she is playing games with me. I did see Dr. Sanders for an ultrasound and he gave me some prometrium (a form of progesterone) to take for 7 days to give AF a kick in the right direction but it has been a week since my last pill and I still haven't seen her. He said that from the looks of my lining I should have a pretty heavy flow. I have had some very light spotting but other than that I have just been trying to not get too aggrivated about it all. I have heard that it can take 7-10 days after the last pill for AF to finally show so I am hoping that things will be underway in the next couple of days. The plan is, once she arrives, to take 50 mg of chlomid on cycle days 3-8, while continuing to take the metformin. I have also started acupuncture and although I have my doubts I want to give it a fair shot. It was very relaxing the first time and she said that if I have been charting, I should notice a difference. Unfortunately, I haven't been charting up until now so I don't have anything to compare it to other than if I start ovulating but that could also be because of the chlomid. I will probably go once a week for a month or two and see how I feel. If I feel that it's a waste of money I will stop going. Fortunately, she charges on a sliding scale so you pay what you can afford with a minimum of $15 and a maximum of $40. With those prices I think it's worth a shot!
Fire season is just a few weeks away and Skeet seems to think it will probably be a busy one. This is good but bad at the same time. If there is a good chance he won't be around then I don't want to spend the money on the chlomid and ultrasounds and chance that he won't be in town on the day of ovulation. So I think if we can get AF to cooperate I will do chlomid for the next two months and then put TTC (trying to concieve) on hold until things slow down. I am also debating whether or not we will continue to do any fertilty drugs/treatments while I am doing school. I should find out in the next couple of weeks whether or not I will be interviewing for the Rad Tech program. If I get in, life will be pretty stressful for a few years and I don't know if I want to add the stress of TTC to that. Having a baby is very important to me but if I am not going to be able to have one I would like to have a good career. Obviously, if we don't ever get pregnant I won't do OB ultrasounds but I will go a different direction and maybe do MRIs or Cardiac ultrasounds. It's a lot to think about and I still don't have it figured all out, but I think that things might just work out the way they are supposed to.
That's all I have time for now... hopefully in the next couple of days I can post that things are underway... keeping my fingers crossed!!
