I love it when I'm wrong...

Just don't tell my Husband.

The nurse called me yesterday to make sure I had the info for my appointment with the pain specialist on the 1st.* While I had her on the phone I asked if my day 21 test was back yet so put me on hold while she tracked it down. I didn't think it was going to show that I Oed but the test came back at 21.7. Anything over 10 is good so my 43 year old girly parts are over achievers!

*They keep adding people to the very small room we are working in and the noise level is making my headaches go ballistic. I'm hoping I can get trigger point injections. It's getting to the point I can't function at work and their "you are just going to have to get used to it" statement doesn't excactly help.

Another blood test.

I don't think the metformin/clomid worked. I never did get a good solid line on the OPK this month. I go in the morning to have a blood test run to see if I O'ed or not. I can pretty much guarantee it's going to be NOT. ~sigh~

We'll just try again next month at a higher dose.

some new test results

The nurse left me a message with some of the test results from last week. I was really pleased to hear that my FSH was only 7.5! Wow! For being 43 that is pretty darn good!
Thyroid is holding steady as are the estrogen levels. The only thing acting up is the glucose which came in at 113. Not terribly high but they think the Metformin will help bring it down to a more reasonable number.
I'm feeling pretty optomistic about things right now. Still holding my breath but hopeful.

Not much to tell these days...

That last m/c knocked my system for a loop and it hasn't figured out how to reset itself yet. I went to the Dr last Thursday and they gave me a thorough once over. Blood tests, ultrasound, etc. We switched some meds up and added the Metformin I've been reading up on. Both overies show 5 to 7 follicles which is good so they put me on Clomid to see if that will help get the ball rolling.
Dr. W warned me that it has a pretty high risk of twins but we have that already with my family history so I'm pretty ok if we get a twofer. D says he is too....with a terrified look in his eye. LOL I had fun teasing him about it this weekend.
Other than wanting to smack some stupid people at a concert Saturday night, I haven't had too many side effects from the Clomid. Let's hope that doesn't change and also that it does the trick.
