HSG day!

I had my HSG this morning. It went great! Both tubes were open and it was painless. I only had to wait about 10 minutes for my doctor which was great....and since I work in the radiology department, the radiologist (the one who took the pictures) was really sweet. He was patting my shoulder and asking how I was. Anyways, I only felt a little pressure when he clamped my cervix and just a tiny bit of cramping when he injected the contrast. It wasn't bad at all!! My doc told me to use this cycle to my adavantage. I'm hoping the x-ray dye blasted my tubes WIDE open! Ben and I have talked about our next step if this cycle is a bust....and we have decided to take a break. Since we are completely out of pocket for infertility, we need to get our credit card payed off before we add more debt. I'm ok with our decision, but it makes me sad cause I know I'm not getting any younger.

Weight loss as of Tuesday: 18.8 lbs!

The thing that has sucked this week is that my home computer has a virus! And since I work at a hospital with public computers, I can't get online very often.

HSG scheduled

To my disappointment, AF arrived Monday morning at work. I had a hard time holding it together because at the moment, I am working with 3 pregnant ladies and I just found out my sister is KU (after messing up her BCP's). So it's been difficult for me to be surrounded by baby bumps.

The good news, I have an HSG scheduled for next Friday (March 13th). I am super excited because I know that those can be therapeutic and a lot of girls get pregnant after having that test done. Ben's SA is perfect so I'm hoping that this test will help me!

On the weight loss front, I'm down 17.4 lbs!!

FF gave me solid CH this morning!

According to FF I'm 3dpo today! I had a follie scan on Monday and I had a 30mm follie. I really hope this is finally my cycle!

As far as weight loss goes....I'm down 14.6 lbs. I have another weigh in on Tuesday! I hope the fact that I have been losing weight jump started my body into wanting to get pregnant!

Bring on the hot flashes

Yesterday was my last dose of clomid and I'm just waiting for the hot flashes to begin! That's usually the only s/e I get from the clomid. I have a doc appt Feb 16 the check follie size. I have to admit I haven't been as obsessed with TTC since I started Weight Watchers....I have been more obsessed about what I am putting into my mouth and losing weight. So far I'm down 11.4 lbs!

Provera-Day 5 of 10

Wish I were on Day 10 of provera already! I'm ready for AF to get here and get the show on the road! I'm remaining optimistic that clomid will make me ovulate...I've seemed to have luck on 150mg.
Just found out my cousin is pregnant and I couldn't be happier!!! She has had 3 miscarriages and really deserves a happy healthy pregnancy! I'm hoping to be joining her in pregnancy soon!!!
DH and I have been talking about what to do with our tax return....I thought I would like to save some for nursery furniture in case we get pregnant soon!...there's that optimism I was talking about. So of course I have spent a couple of hours this evening looking at nursery furniture and crib bedding...I guess it never hurts to be prepared!

Back on the fertility train

I'm going to start provera today so I can get started with clomid again. I'm really hoping this is my cycle! After 2+ years of trying, I'm ready for it to be my turn! If I get KU in Februrary, I would be due in November which is an important month to me as it was my late father's birth month. My dad died very unexpectedly in March 2007 at the age of 51 of a massive heart attack with no symptoms. It would seem very fitting for me to have a baby during his birth month...a tribute to him....also if I ever have a boy, he will be named after my father....Thomas.

Ready to try again....

I had a nice break from IF around the holidays but now I think I'm ready to get back on the horse. I have my scripts for provera and clomid....I just have to take my lazy butt to the pharmacy to pick it up. I might not end up need the provera at all....I started spotting today so I'm not sure if AF is on her way or would be great if she came on her own but I'm not holding my breath. I think if it's not AF I'll wait and take an HPT just to make sure that I didn't have a miraculous break cycle BFP.
