This Time Last Year

I learned that my pregnancy was a blighted ovum. Instead of getting to go out with friends for Halloween and have fun, I spent the night on the couch waiting for the cytotec to work. I have to say, that has kind of ruined Halloween for me. This year I find myself not really being able to get excited about it. I'm going out tonight but afraid that I'm going to be miserable to be around.

In less depressing news, we are changing my protocol this cycle. Instead of using just clomid we're adding injectibles. My insurance won't cover fertility medication but my RE thinks he can get me samples for a couple of cycles--which is awesome! Apparently my last cycle I only had one good egg and my lining was thin. I wish they would have told me this then because I was thinking I had two eggs and my lining was ok. I guess they probably don't want to cause anxiety...but I was really disappointed when the last cycle didn't work. I would have been less so if I had known going in that things weren't looking that great.

AF Starts the Week

Sadly this cycle ended up with AF. Needless to say, I'm really disappointed. I was really hoping to get pregnant. Even if it didn't stick I would at least be making progress in the right direction. Alas, it was not to be. So, now I get to start this whole process over again. I'll be going to my RE's office tomorrow. I'm crossing my fingers that there will not be any cysts and that we'll be able to squeeze another IUI in before I head off to a conference. Right now the timing is pretty precarious so I'm really hoping that it will work out. Will let you all know more tomorrow.
