Carry On Sunshine

I have no idea where that title came from.

Our appointment yesterday was pretty good, again got told a different story with the injections, but this time we got a lot more information and it actually made sense.

Basically the nurse we saw last time was wrong when she said K would definitely need to do the injections. She checked K’s charts for the past 7 months before saying that, but as this nurse explained the clomid will change everything up anyway so those results won’t be relevant.

The needles weren’t as bad (big) as we expected, but K’s still not 100% sure about sticking herself.

However, we have got a plan that we’re more comfortable with – just using the clomid, then having all the extra monitoring (scans etc) but not using the injectibles. We figure we’ll try this for one month and then see what happens. That way we’ll be able to use the scans to see how things are working and if more intervention is likely to be needed.

This isn’t something that they usually do there, so the nurse needs to check with the dr, but it should be all good.

Tonight we are planning to stay up til 3am watching the Olympics opening ceremony – thank god it’s friday night lol – I say planning because right now it’s 9pm and our lounge looks like this: I’m on the couch, one cat is asleep here with me, the dog is in her bed upside down sound asleep, K is in her sleeping back on the floor with the other cat asleep on her!

    Did you manage to stay awake for the ceremonies? I really hope that you have a great response to the Clomid and don’t have to go near the needles. Wishing for you!

    yep well mostly! Was really struggling by the time the NZ team marched (about 5th to last and 3.30am our time) and really crashed before they lit the torch haha nevermind I’m sure that part will be on the news…

    I’m glad you managed to work out a plan that you’re more comfortable with.

    I think the extra scans are a great idea. When we finally had them (for the cycle that worked), it helped us understand why I wasn’t becoming pregnant without drugs. Extra scanning can answer questions that blood work and surgeries can’t! You actually get to see how you’re responding to increased hormone levels and how you ovulate.

    Fabulous! Good luck and keep us posted.

    Hi. New to your blog, but in the same boat. This month will be my 4th round on clomid, so I consider myself a self glorified expert…it does help with ovulation and follicle development–my follicles are getting bigger each month, so I guess that is good. Good luck with everything and I keep checking in…Jen
