So, I'm going to try to spruce up my blog a bit over the next few days. I'm updating the design and trying to make it a bit more interesting. If you have feedback, let me know.

In fertility world I'm a few days past my first set of back to back IUIs. I've had a lot of cramping today--feels like pre AF. I'm not sure if that's normal or not but it's what is currently occurring. Work and home life have been crazy lately and I'm hoping that craziness will help this 2ww move quickly. I really, really hate waiting. In the meantime (trying to keep busy) I've been reading Outlander. I really like it so far and it's making me want to buy the rest of the books in the series.

Clomid and IUIs

So, apparently I am terrible at updating this blog. I promise to try to be more diligent in the future. I'm always annoyed when I start getting into someone's blog and they just stop posting..

So, I've moved on. After last month's BFN I decided to bring out the big guns and try clomid/IUIs. I've taken the clomid and had my ultrasound appointments and today will be my trigger and first IUI. I will go back for my second tomorrow morning. I've been a little disappointed in the egg results thus far. I'll definitely have 1...maybe 2. However, the whole goal of this was to create more eggs in the hope that one might be good. So, yeah a bit disappointed. It has, however, been fascinating to watch my cycle in progress. To see the lining start growing (hoping it's even better today to avoid estrogen patches) and to see the follicles. After these IUIs I'll officially be in the 2ww. I actually really don't like the 2ww. I'm not a patient person and it's torture wondering whether or not I'll be pregnant month after month. That being said, I at the very least feel like I'm taking a bit more control this cycle. We'll see what it brings and move forward from there. It's really all I can do.
