Green Light...GO

Well I've got the green light.
The Dr. came in herself to do my ultrasound. I couldn't believe she was coming in again, but apparently she is very hands on and wants to be paged every time one of her patients has anything done so she can do it herself. She said things look great for CD 10. I have 2 dominant follicles on the left ovary both measuring about 11 mm. She is estimating I will get my LH surge in five days. I wanted to bet her on it, but didn't think challenging her to a gamble was appropriate... My guess would be in about 10 days, but we shall see.

The pathology report was in...and again no answers. There was no found cause of death for the babies. Since nothing indicates blood clotting issues she is not putting me on blood thinners at this time. She said we would revisit that issue if God forbid I have it happen again. Although she has said there are no guarantees she is staying positive for this next time. Once I get a positive test she wants to monitor me very closely herself. Then if I make it that far I will be off to a High Risk OB at about 14 weeks or so. I have a lot of steps until I get to that point, so I don't want to get ahead of myself. Sometimes the "what ifs" can really get to me.

So for now its just monitoring in the next week or two followed by some progesterone twice a day after my surge.  I'm scared but ready to face this.

And for the record..the Clomid has made me borderline craaaazy. I am on an emotional roller coaster this week...and just trying to ride it out. At least I warned my friends it was coming!


  1. Yeah...glad for the green light!!! Love your honesty and your knowledge...I am learning a lot from you. As always, lots of love, thoughts and prayers your way! Hope you can enjoy this beautiful St. Paddy's day weekend with your beautiful family!

  3. Katie! Wow, what a ride you've been on! You are such a strong, devoted, and determined woman and mother! I had no idea what hell you have been through. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for a healthy, 'uneventful' :) pregnancy....sooner rather than later too!

  4. Hi from ICLW! I saw that you also had issues with a uterine septum. I've had two surgeries to correct mine and am waiting to see if I will need a third before continuing with IVF. I just wanted to say HI and that I'm now following you! Good luck in your journey and know that I'm praying for you in Alabama.

  5. Hey there From ICLW!!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree the clomid is a crazy maker. Just remember that this too shall pass!
