Good for you, SimplyRochelle! I hope everything ends up working out! I find timing to be one of the most difficult things to handle in this TTC journey...Work has been so crazy that I haven't been able to get my endometrial biopsy done. And since timing is so important, it has been just way to difficult to fit it in!!
Julieven, I'm so sorry about what you had to go through. I hope that this time is successful and that it helps you heal from the pain of the past!!
Brichole, thank you for being the best moderator!! It's amazing having someone like you to talk to and the fact that you are so organized and really do respond to every post is heart warming!! I hope that when it's your time to start again that you can have luck quickly!
I think I'm in the minority in that I never had any side effects from the clomid. Perhaps a little minor nausea but really, that could have been anything. I'm really frustrated with clomid though because of what it does to my lining!! Oh, my RE wanted to trigger today but my DH and I decided to push back a little now... I'll go in tomorrow to get triggered...at least this way, my lining had an extra day or 2 to grow a bit. I know that starting out with a 4mm on Wednesday means that it'll still be too thin on Friday but I'll take what I can get.
My DH and I also made an appt with a new RE and we're fairly excited about the prospect...I know it sounds horrible to be so down about my chances this month but I just feel like my lining is way too thin for me to successfully conceive. We're still going through the IUI on Sat probably but still...I hope that this new RE will be more open to my questions. You know what really annoys me? Whenever I ask my current RE about something, she answers yes or no. Abrupt, with no explanation. Ummm hello, how about an explanation about why it's a no. Why can't I get estrogen or ANYTHING to help build my lining???! So hopefully, the new RE will be better about it. haha I'm a little sad though because my current RE is so convenient and also female. The new RE, which my DH found, is male. I haven't gone to a male doctor since I was a young girl!!
Jenger, by the way, I absolutely understand about not being followed. Honestly, I feel like my DH and I would have had the same amount of luck (and that's not much!) if we were not followed too. I mean, we spend about $1200 a round and really, I sometimes wonder if I didn't induce every month so early, maybe my lining would have been able to build up by the time I naturally would have ovulated and we might have had more luck getting pregnant. Also, at each visit, the doctor charges for a visit plus a sonogram so I'm really trying to cut down on the number of visits. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent!!
