I'm back again ladies. I've had a bit of a rollercoaster couple of days.
Positives HPTs last week, starting to get better lines thursday and friday, went to the doctors friday to get my referral for bloods and an early scan. Had the blood test and went back to work.
About 30 mins after getting back to work I started bleeding. I ended up rushing home (I needed to change and was not prepared for that at work) calling my doctor and eventually getting onto my FS who told me to rest and see what happened.
I was able to get my bloods back on Saturday and the HCG was less than 5.
I feel so silly now that I could have thought that it would have worked and that I bothered my doctors with it. I had tested before AF, but I'd deliberately waited until she was late to make the doctors appointment.
I'm now cycle day 3 - I did not take my clomid last night. I assumed it was okay, but I really was not sure. I feel a bit lost with it all now.
I'm hoping I get some direction today.
If I don't hear anything I'll book an appointment with my FS and we will give this cycle a miss and try again next cycle.
I really like by FS, but I just wish he'd make it more clear what the plan is. I hate not knowing and it really stresses me out. I have anxiety normally and I work really hard to manage it - only being told bits and pieces really messes with my anxiety levels.
Mine was a really early mc and I took clomid the next cycle. I'm sure it will be fine if you take it today.
Hi Mellie29 that really devastating I am so sorry it didn't work out.
yeah I spent a lot of time last week being really stressed out that I would have to make multiple trips to my FS and how disruptive it would be, it can be so hard that they don't tell you much until you walk through the door. I know how you feel I suffer from anxiety as well and it can be so hard when people don't understand how hard you are working to hold it together sometimes.
I just got back from the specialist, the clomid 100mg and the metformin are still not doing much for me I had one tiny follicle, 9mm sad.. so I now have to do daily home FSH injections until this time next week, then back for another scan and a trigger shot. This is soooo much more than I ever bargained for feeling pretty upset and disappointed. This was totally not how I saw our journey going.. any way see how the next week goes and I will go from there.
I'm sorry it's not going easier for you @twentysomething. I really hope the fsh injections work.
I went back to my fs today, got the plan forward. He ended up starting the Clomid today (cd 4) and modifying the plan to accommodate the later start. He was really please with my last results - 3 good size follicles, everything seemed to respond really well to the treatment.
I feel a little more organised this time. We ran through the timetable, agreed when I'll next be back to see him. I'm feeling a lot calmer. I also confirmed that he wants me calling up for results rather than making appointments. I think this cycle will be much easier knowing what to expect.
Yeah its so much easier when the dr is able to give you a bit more of a clear out line of what to expect for the month.. I only have to see my dr again once next week (on my day off thankfully makes it easier) then I just have to wait the two weeks out.. which I think will be the looooongest two weeks of my life.
What dose of clomid are you on? and are you doing another trigger shot this month?
Another round at 100 with a trigger shot.
He said he might change it up next month if no luck
Hi ladies how are we all going?
I went to the dr yesterday had one nice big fat follicle on my left ovary! Was pretty happy my little ovary was finally doing something! Got my trigger injection so am now in my fertile 48 hours, then a very long 2WW which is going to be agonising!
but don't know when to test when the trigger is out of my system? Any ideas?
Hope your all going well?
I know its extremely hard - and i'm in exactly the same boat this cycle - but I think its best not to do any home HPT and wait for the bloods.
The dr said to take one in 2 weeks so I haven't booked bloods but wondering if should? Could I just go to gp to get referral for bloods as my FS is on the other side of city so going all that way for a blood test is crazy... but I think they get them back quicker? Thoughts GP vs Fs for bloods does it matter?
