Here we go again... Its CD7

They say you're supposed to just have intercourse to get pregnant?
I must have missed that memo!

I have read and followed other blogs that take a picture in the beginning of their cycles of all that they need.  Once you lay it all out on one table it sure looks like a lot. And I'm only on a Clomid cycle - nothing in comparison to the "big guns" of infertility.

Clomid 100 mg day 3-7
Met 850 2x/day
Baby Aspirin 1/day
Folic Acid 3x/day
Basal Thermometer
Fertility Monitor
Digital Ovulation Tests (Monitor will often miss my lh surge)
Trigger Shot (after ok from nurse based on follicle scans)
Pre.Seed (to combat side effects of meds)
Progesterone Suppositories
Pregnancy Tests (I prefer the squinting at lines for this lady)

The chemical pregnancy last month was disappointing, but to be honest I didn't have a good feeling about it. I am more angry that the first 2 cycles this time around were a bust and ruined by the other RE.

Sometimes when people make comments like "my husband sneezes/coughs/stands around me and I get pregnant", it makes me a smidge bitter.  I highly doubt my husband sneezing, coughing or standing around me will ever get me pregnant so until then, I will endure all that is pictured above. It stinks, but you know what? It will all be worth it....I know it will.


  1. Good luck this cycle! It is a lot when you lay it all out - just keep telling yourself it will all be worth it someday.

  2. I hope this cycle is successful! =)

  3. Good luck with this cycle! FX crossed this is the last time you'll have to take that picture for a while!

  4. good luck!!! keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

  5. That comment always makes me want to cringe and stick my tongue out. UGH. REally? Your husband LOOKED at you and you got pregnant? I'm sorry you don't get to have sex at least. @*(%#*)%#

    1. Ha! That made me laugh...I remember reading your blog when you posted the pic of your meds before your IUI cycle. I hope mine ends as sweet as your did!

  6. Hot damn it's a lot of shit. I started running out of drawers to stash everything when the cleaning lady came, I have thermometers and miscarriage books and sharps containers hidden all over the damn place. Best of luck with this cycle, lady. And then I'll see you at the OB, ha! Totally sounds like the same place :)

  7. This looks like my hall closet! I miss those days of thinking just have sex and you'll get pregnant. HA!

  8. Just found your blog. Good luck this cycle. I am starting my first IVF next month so I will definitely be following along now. Hope this one ends in happiness :). If only I could snap my fingers like so many others can!

  9. Your picture is much neater than mine, but yes - so crazy how much it truly can take to even just TRY to make a baby. Thanks for stopping by this morning to offer your support as I start my cycle. Best of luck to you!!

  10. Oh wow! That really is a lot when you lay it all out there.
    I wish you all the best this cycle!
