Cycle 3 in full swing

I started taking Provera 2 days ago. So after my dose this afternoon, only one week left!

DH and I are getting up super early tomorrow to be at OHSU by 8am for his SA. He's not really looking forward to it, but knows it needs to be done. Ahh the things we do for a mini Peachey :-) Not too sure when we'll get the results from the SA, but the lab will be reporting back to my doctor who will call me... So by the end of the week would be nice, but we'll see! Other than that, nothing exciting to report! Just more more more waiting.

Moving on, AGAIN.

Well, this cycle is over, too. No O. Not even a hint of it. I really am starting to wonder if maybe Clomid doesn't work for me. Some other women that I know say that clomid makes them crazy with mood swings ect.. The only thing I really feel is hot flashes.. I do get grumpy a little bit I think, but it doesn't make me crazy. Sigh. Well, this is it. This is my last shot with my doctor and her attempts to make me ovulate. If I don't O on 150mgs, I'm getting sent to an RE. Aaron has his SA sometime the first week of September, so that's the next "big step". Right now I'm waiting to start my period on my own (yea right) and if I don't I start Provera again on August 29th. Then Clomid CD 3-7 and I'll start testing with OPKs on CD 11 again. We shall see what it brings!

This morning I'm having some not such nice thoughts. I'm frustrated and angry. For myself, and for all my infertile friends out there. Pondering the "fairness" of life often leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I guess it's kind of my fault for watching this television show and letting it get to me, but I can't help it. I love watching Discovery Health. There are so many cool shows that are positive and informative, but I just watched one for the first time that sickened me. It's called "I'm pregnant and...". This particular episode was "I'm pregnant and I'm in prison". Let me break it down for you. Basically this woman is 23, already has 3 children, 2 of which she can't see because she's a violent drug addicted meth whore, and she's in prison for possesion of meth and attempted robbery when she finds out she's pregnant. Surprise!! Ugh. I just don't understand why people like that who just whore their way through men for personal gain and drugs get pregnant so easily. It's so unfair. Here we are, putting our bodies and wallets through the wringer in hopes of achieving our dreams of being parents, and this woman who has no idea who her baby's father is, gets to go to the OB in handcuffs and shackles. We have safe homes, nurseries, and love waiting for our little miracles, and this poor baby gets the spend the first 18 months of his life behind bars in a prison nursery because his mother didn't plan for him. Ugh. It's just so aggravating.

Just got off the phone with my doctor. My clomid challenge results came back normal!!!! !!!! And while we were talking we came up with a new plan of action. We're waiting to see if I'm going to ovulate this cycle on 100mgs. Regardless of if I do or don't, DH will be getting a SA done late this month. If I ovulate, great! If I don't, we're going to try 150mgs next month. If that's also a bust, moving on to an RE. She gave me the option of seeing an RE next cycle without trying 150mgs, but I really like her a lot and I'd like to stay with her if I could. So we have one more shot! But hopefully I won't need it cause I'll ovulate this cycle, darn it!!

Crystal Ball

So about 3 weeks ago I did something I'd never done before. I ordered a prediction from a psychic. I'm not usually one to put TOO much stock into that kind of stuff (I know you don't beleive me because 2 weekends ago I bought a rose quartz lol) but I thought it might be fun to see what was said. This psychic specializes in baby readings. Here is what she predicts for us. What do you think?

Thank you for being patient with me while i got back to your reading. I am seeing you wtih a Girl and they relate her to late September so this is either birth month, conceive month or the month you find out in. They show her as someone who is always really loving and gentle. The one that will give you a hug if she knows that your having a really tough time. They show her being born late at night and I am seeing her being in the low 8lb range. I am not seeing her with tons of hair. 

I think that you are going to find her to usually be one of the taller kids in her class. Even when hanging around with the kids who are her age that shes friends with, shes usually one of the taller ones (by an inch or two). She usually likes to keep her hair fairly long and I am often seeing her modeling during a younger years. I am seeing her as she gets older is more focused on studies and is always really focused. You are going to find that shes not one to fool around when it comes to her future. I think that you will find her to be someone who is always doing things for herself. She really does not like it when someone takes over something or tells her how it needs to be done without giving her the chance to try it on her own and see how she wants to do it.

She can be pretty stubborn. I think that you will find that when you try and help her with something shes the one that is actually going to show her frustration, and actually take it apart at times to do it herself. I think that you eventually learn and ask her if she wants help and if shes struggling and saying she does not want help, you usually just let her do it and see how long it takes.

Shes always really interesting to talk to. I am seeing her having very deep opinions on things and is always the one to have good knowledge on the things that shes willing to debate.

When it comes to career paths, they show her working as a DR. I am seeing this linked to more of a pediatric type feel (she loves kids).

When it comes to marriage, I am seeing her closer to 25. They will have two boys and one girl of their own,.

CD10 blood draw tonight.

My last test before knowing the results of the Clomid challenge. I have no idea how long it will take for the doctor to call me and give me the news, but at least in the meantime I'll be busy POAS to distract me lol. I start checking for ovulation tomorrow. Really praying and hoping we at least have a chance this cycle. Can't wait to see that dark line on my OPK!!!

Oh, hot flahes. How I've missed you! NOT!!!

I had some pretty brutal moments of intense heat today. 4-5 "big ones" and some other smaller flashes. The clomid does that to me. (and a lot of other patients! :hugs: Kelly) Luckily they stayed away on moving day, so there's that to be happy about, but the next few days should be fun.... All part of the end game!
