Listen, I am so damn ready. If you read my last post you know that I have been frustrated beyond belief with the way things have been going on the baby making front. First, only my left (and blocked) side was ready to go. Then, they found a cyst. It’s like my body was just not having it.
I went in for an ultrasound this week and found that the cyst had shrunk thanks to my continuing to take the birth control. Woo hoo! We also did a ton of blood work to check all my levels and get a baseline. They took so much blood. Look at all these vials! I also included a pic of the whole test order.
Got the call for the update and the doctor feels good about moving forward!
So now we start it alllllll over again.
Next week, I’ll take the 3 Clomid once a day, Monday-Friday. Saturday & Sunday I’ll give myself the Follistim shots again. Then go in that Monday for an ultrasound to make sure my right side is alive, well, and hopefully, the one throwing the rager this time.
Cross all your fingers and toes, and baby dust, and all the things!
I am realllllllly fucking tired of this screen without a baby on it. So please pray if that’s your thing, talk to the universe if that’s your jam, send baby dust, cross fingers, do whatever you can to send the healthy uterus and baby vibes my direction. This bitch ain’t getting any younger and I’d really like this time to be my time. ?

Katie, I’ve been where you are, at 19 I lost my right ovary to a huge cyst. At 24 I lost 2/3 of my left ovary to another cyst that ruptured on the inside and was filling with blood. After getting married in Oct 1985, I was told the 1/3 I had left wasn’t working. We went to a fertility specialist, I was told I had 2 chances to get pregnant, slim and none. We started Clomid, and HCG injections, along with hormones to stimulate my ovary to work. I was an emotional roller coaster. Month after month of temperature charts, trying to get pregnant by following a calendar, all the right foods, all the positions to help things along. Finally our doctor said, put the temperature charts and calendars away, go away, relax, stop stressing. We got pregnant on that 2 week trip!! We only were able to conceive once, but she was and still is so amazing. Her and hubby have given us 2 beautiful granddaughters. So my advice is, take the meds, let science do it’s part, but try not to stress!! I will keep you in my prayers!! Good luck!!

Infertility is still one of the hardest and most frustrating times of my life. So much so I only had one child because I just couldn’t put my heart and body back into that tailspin. You’re not alone, it’s just not a club anyone wants to belong to.
Keep the faith/hope/etc that your time will come. Motherhood is a journey and so few talk about the preplanning stage of that trip.

Thank you! It’s true, not enough people talk about all the before baby, if you’re lucky enough to have one.
