Your Last Warning


So I just got the call from my nurse that I'm good to go for IUI #3! She confirmed this would be our last Clo.mid cycle before moving to combination next month (clo.mid + injectibles). I asked her since this would be our last try would it make sense to up the dosage to 100mg and to my dismay she was basically like sure...I'll call the pharmacy and change your dosage. I was so prepared to have to convince her to push the dr, so that seemed way too easy! Maybe my luck is turning around! I go in next Friday for my monitoring appt (YAY) which will be CD11. I seem to have no problem growing follies and if anything they grow too fast, so I'm hoping at CD11 they'll be nice and ripe. And this month my goal is 3 follies for my 3rd IUI!!!

Now that we're ready to go AGAIN, I have one final warning for this slacker body of mine:

Please please please can you TRY to remember what you did back in April, I know you know how to get pregnant...and it made me so unbelievably happy! I know you can do this...I'm willing you to do it again. I've been VERY patient with you, but now its getting serious. You may think popping a pill for 5 days is no big deal...BUT at this point I am not afraid to stab you repeatedly with needles until you bust out the follies that are going to get me preggers. Yah, does the term "trigger shot" ring a bell...yah, that one hurts doesn't it?? Well, its only going to get worse. And this is where we're headed if you don't cooperate with me here. I NEED you to work with me, and I promise to be good to you back, do yoga (which i loved), acupuncture, drink LOTS of water, and eat TONS of brazil nuts (which by the way you TOTALLY let me down this month you disgusting nuts), whatever it takes. I'm on your team here so let's take care of business this 3rd round. Just please...make 3 my lucky number, or you will be sorry. Consider yourself warned!!!

Yea for 100 mgs of Clomid, I hope this is just what you need. I am rooting that IUI #3 is it for you. Come on body, give her 3 beautiful follies to work with and get (and stay) pregnant! You can do this!

Good luck this month.

NICE! Glad you are good to go for this cycle!! It's always weird when they're like, "okay sure, good idea, you can do that." My doc took me down from 100mg to 50mg without saying anything (well, that's the plan once I can cycle again). Weird, but whatever, he's the boss.

Laying down the law! I like it. I think I need to give my body a stern "talking to" as well.

I think 3 follies is a good goal, and hopefully the 100mg of clomid is the right amount to get you there! Good luck!

Yeah! I'm so happy for you! It looks like we are on the same schedule, because I thought I would be back on BCP but I'm actually starting injections! Woo hoo! Cycle buddies! Next Friday will be day 10 for me! Let's keep in touch! Do you get side effects from clomid? I get bloating from the menopur shots but not too bad until ovulation! Super happy for you!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I'm so glad that everything is good for IUI #3. You know what they say: third time is a charm! I hope that's the case for you. Good luck and I can't wait to read about the baseline u/s. Grow, follies, grow! :)

I hope your body litens to you and hooks you up!
If the nurse didn't give you a hard time, it must be a good sign, it must! Good luck =)

YAY that's awesome! So happy she upped it to 100 for you and I really hope this is THE cycle!!! YAY!

Good luck and Yay for the 100mg of Clomid. Do you think you might have to go in earlier this time because your dosage increase? They might gor faster than they already do!!!

I am begining my first round of IUI with injectibles this cycle. My doc skipped the clomid because "I am old". ahahahahahaha So we shall see what happens. I am excited.
