It's a fine line...

The line between getting pulled closer to despair because of the 6 (so far) negative OPKs, and getting excited because (I think) I see changes in my body is a very thin one. Logically, I know I can't start this now. I'm only on CD 16 and all things considered, it's still "early". And then I think there's something different happening this cycle.. Getting a bunch of symptoms I've never had before. I'm torn between trying not to get too excited and fretting because time is going by. I'm not worried though, I mean not REALLY. I won't be worried until I pass CD 25.. So that's 9 more days of trying to stay calm either direction I look in. I can do this!

Hello, Breast Tenderness.

So the whole time I've been on medication I've waited for breast tenderness to hit me. My doctor said that Provera especially could bring it on, but it never did, not once. And now that all the drugs are out of my system it shows up. Hmm. And it's pretty noticable. I was driving to work this morning and made a left turn and my elbow kinda squished into my breast and I said "Ouch," out loud, which definitely surprised me lol. I don't wanna get too excited, but could it be a sign that O will happen finally?!?! Gah, I hope so!!!!!

I got my box of OPKs yesterday.

And boy was it hard to fork over $50 for them. Sheesh!! But my doctor insisted I get the Clear Blue digitals this month because she wants to be absolutely certain wether I O or not. So off we went to the pharmacy and I got the 20 pack for $49.99. DH was a little horrified but consented because he knows it's necessary. Now come on O, please!!!! Will start testing on CD10! I am all done with Clomid as of yesterday, thankfully. I had some odd vision change side effects this time around that I really didn't care for. Hopefully I won't have to take it ever again!! Yay!

Do you ever have those days...

When you'd rather sit on the toilet 5 extra minutes doing nothing than dealing with cleaning up a heavy period? That's right folks, this post is coming to you via the toilet seat. Yuck. Being a woman really does suck sometimes lol. Maybe it's because I've been spoiled with no AF for over 6 months, but I just find it so unpleasant to deal with. This is by far my heaviest period since we started this whole ordeal. I have to change at least twice an hour and overnight last night was pretty bad. DH says it's because my uterus really is making room for our baby this time, so it's going to work :-) I love him. I hope it does! Taking my first dose of Clomid this afternoon at 1pm. Alright, alright. I suppose I should get back to reality and deal with this. Ew. *sigh*

CD 1 !

Here we go! Cycle 3 has "officially" begun. Kinda hard to believe that even with medication this is only my 3rd period since May. It should be closer to 5. Ah well. Last chance, last shot, here we go. Taking 150mgs of Clomid on CDs 3-7 and start OPK testing on CD 11. I really hope we have a chance this cycle!!! Come on little eggie, please come out!

Forward Progression: (normal) 2-4 (ours) 3
Morphology: (normal) greater than 30% (ours) 44%

I know those terms and numbers may not mean a lot to some of you (trust me I was confused too lol) but basically it means my husband had awesome baby making spermies! Haha. :-) So yay! That was a great releif to hear that it's not both of us, it's just me. Come on Ovaries!!! Please cooperate!!!

On day 8 of Provera today so just a few more days before AF should be here! Woo hoo!
