I decided to post my first response here as it seems I am facing many of the same issues that have been brought to light. I begin my third round of clomid today. My husband and I have been TTC for three years now. I am about eighty pounds overweight and constantly struggling to lose. It seems even more of a battle with the stress from infertility treatments and meetings. The first round of clomid I became pregnant. I can't explain how excited I was to see a positive pregnancy test and get a call from the doctor that my blood work was also positive. That all ended quickly. The following day I had a beta done. I remember that day because it was a perfect storm of sadness. The nurse called me at work to tell me the my endo did not believe it was a viable pregnancy as my levels were at 6 and not progressing. Of course this made me fall to tears. To top it all off, my husband picked me up from work that day and saw that I was crying. He said "did someone call you?" I questioned what he was talking about. Then he informed me that my eight year old schnauzer Frankie had died at home suddenly. We found out later that he had a stroke which is very uncommon. Needless to say, I lost the baby and my dog within one day. The second treatment of clomid did not take but I know that we did not "try" as much as we should have during the "fertile" times. My endo has told me that this will be my final round of clomid before we move on to something else like IUI. I am really nervous as I am not sure if I am ready to move on to IUI. I can't believe how difficult these times are. However, it feels better to know that many others are going through similar trying times. Sometimes it feels like everyone around me is getting pregnant easily except me. This forum proves that many struggle through this as well.
