Patience, Grashopper!

Patience is not my strong point. I feel like I am so close, yet so far away.

There was much confusion at my appointment today. I made the appointment for the ultrasound yesterday. I thought that was what the RE wanted. I was mistaken, and the staff there did not set me straight. I have not seen the RE in over a month, so I think neither of us were sure what was going on. So, the appointment was made, and I went in today. I talked with the RE, who was confused on why we were doing the ultrasound. He said he usually does baseline ultrasounds once patients have the medication in hand. He was also not sure what we wanted to do. We discussed the options. I let him know that we really wanted to try injectables next. The clomid and IUI did not work. So, I now have an appointment to get the teaching on the injections. Yippee! Hopefully both me and Hubby can get off work. I am crossing my fingers that things will be better now that I can see him regularly.

I am just generally crabby today, though. Despite the fact I have the day off. I switched my WW eating plan from flex to core, just to see how I could do. I think I am going to have to try it for a couple of weeks before I get the hang of it. Right now I am feeling shaky and irritable, and i think it is because I started trying flex plan yesterday. At least I do not have to be at work. I hope I will adjust soon. I am trying to drink a lot of water and bear with it for the time being.
I may try to work out later today. I think I need it, and it should make me feel better.

Off to clean house a bit. I do not know how, but the house seems messy to me almost right after we clean it. Very frustrating...

How frustrating. I've had those moments with our RE: Both of us confused and not knowing what is going on.
Hopefully everything will fall into place.

I hope you feel better :-)

it's never good to be confused AND crabby all at the same time!
I can totally understand your impatience - I would feel the same.
Things will get done - eventually right?!
Hope the rest of your day off got better :)

I hope you and the RE get on the same page and things start to come together for you.
I am so with you on the house thing. I could not wait to get the hardwood floors laid, but since we have been done I miss the carpet (shh, don't tell the hubby I said that). I hate that you can see every.little.damn.thing on the floor now. Hmmph!

I'm sorry it was such a frustrating day today!! Hopefully you and your RE are on track now.

Is it just me or when you have a crabby day, does it stay crabby? I have been in a funk lately and can't seem to claw my way out of it. Hmpf!!

I hear you on the house cleaning. . .my solution lately has been to live with it a little messy!

Good luck with the RE. I hope it all goes smoothly from here.

I hope that future visits with RE are less confusing. Good to hear that you now have a plan. Hope you are feeling better today.

My name is Helen Page and i would like to show you my personal experience with Clomid.

I am 30 years old. I have taken for 3 months. My progesterone level after my first dose of Clomid was 65 so I knew that I had ovulated. Couldn't try the second cycle on it because my husband went out-of-town while I was O'ing, go figure. Hoping it worked this month!!

I have experienced some of these side effects-
Mood swings, increased appetite, hot flashes, increased pain during ovulation, abdominal pain, mild but infrequent headaches. Also, I used to be on a consistent 28 day cycle, but I think Clomid might have lengthened it as I'm now on a 31-32 day cycle.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Helen Page
