I had my day 3 blood work and sonogram appointment this morning. My ovaries looked good…no cysts. Not that I was worried about it, but the tech said that was what she was checking for. I have my timeline for what will happen through day 11:
Day 3-7 Take 50 mg of Clomid each night
Day 9 75 IU shot of Bravelle
Day 11 8:00 am appointment for blood work and sonogram
If everything looks good then I would take the trigger shot of Ovidrel, otherwise I would come back the next day and each day thereafter until my follicles are ready.
I was given the prescription for Clomid and was told that I would receive a call this afternoon letting me know if this cycle was a go or not. By 1:00 I was getting nervous about getting the prescription filled so I went ahead and got it filled. It was free with my insurance so either way, it didn’t matter if I had waited. But, as soon as I got home I got the call letting me know that this cycle was a go. Perfect timing.
While at my appointment this morning I saw the parents of one of my students from last year. Their son just graduated to the 3 year old class. I didn’t get to talk to them but I did wave hi. You just never know who you will run into at the RE!
So, I took my first dose of Clomid earlier and so far so good. No side effects that I’ve noticed. I have a wicked cold so aside from being stuffed up, sneezing, coughing, and having a sore throat I feel great! I asked about any drug interactions with Clomid and she said that the only thing I should avoid is decongestants. Damn. The one drug I would like to take right now. Oh well, I will suffer without complaint. I think I have some nose strips and vaporub. That will at least get me through the night. Hopefully.
Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
