Finally moving forward


Hello all. I am back in this space in what seems like forever but I have better news. We were finally referred to the Fertility Clinic and had our first appointment with the FS yesterday. I wasn’t going to start writing here again, but BC kept mentioning it was sitting here empty so I thought I’d tell you about our FS visit. So you have him to thank for my reappearance!

The doc, lets call him Dr Pink, confirmed what we already knew. I have severe PCOS, but also I have very good egg reserves and BC has a more than adequate sperm count. We forgot to ask about motility though. For now I think the less we think about it the better, all that matters is the sample was good.

Dr Pink is very, very nice. He’s thoughtful, tried to make us feel as relaxed as possible and was very thorough. He understands we’re on a tight budget and is willing to work with us which is nice. He’s prescribed Norethisterone to induce a period (It’s been 15 month since my last one NOMG) and then he’s recommended 6 rounds of Clomid. This is what we wanted. It was our best case scenario. If at all possible I’d like to avoid having the HCG trigger but if we must, we must.

Weirdly though, on getting back from the clinic. What do you know I’m spotting bright pinky blood? WTF?? I don’t know for sure it’s AF showing her face but I’ve had barely anything since. No idea what it is. I shall keep a check on it. 

I will probably start the Norethisterone end December to middle of January so I can ovulate sometimes in February  Hopefully giving the clinic a chance to calm down after the holidays and then it’s just a waiting game. Hopefully by July we should have made progress, a little bundle of progress.

It’s exciting and terrifying at the same time. Most of our family and friends know we’re having treatment. It makes it much easier, people know about it. It also means this blog doesn’t have to be anonymous any more.


Still waiting

Well I am still waiting for AF. Tested last week, BFN. I have no idea what’s going on with me I really don’t. BC had a falling out with one of the doctors at our surgery so I don’t feel comfortable going there now (You don’t get a choice of doctors just who ever is available so though you book with one you may actually see another. Don’t mind this normally as they are generally well informed of my history). So I’ve kinda been putting that off. Plus I have been working the early shift at work and how it works with most surgerys here, you have to call up between 8-9am to make an appointment… That’s our busiest time. Blah!

Yesterday though I really, really, REALLY thought AF was coming. Sore lower back? Check! Low cramps? Check! Craving unhealthy cakes and biscuits that I don’t touch any other time? Check! This morning though nothing. The backache is still kinda there, I feel kinda bloated but defo no AF. Maybe she’ll do a surprise hit later.

One weird part about yesterday was that I was super tired. around 5pm I had to go have a nap as I could not keep my eyes open. I grabbed my wheat warmer pack, gave it an extra blast in the microwave and curled up in bed. My baby cakes woke me up at about 7 but I was still feeling awful so was laid up there till at least 7.30. Still feel quite tired today despite going to bed not much later than normal and having had a 2 hour nap.

My laptop has died, so I can’t even check my data and see if it was likely I am pg. I have no thoughts either way I just want something to happen so I no longer feel crazy. It also explains why there’s not been much blogging. I have to share the desktop with BC now and sitting there and typing is not so fun. Instead I am writing this at work which is prolly not so great an idea but it’s the only one I got. Besides I don’t mind so much if they know so long as I don’t know they know lol.

In other more exciting new BC got a new job! We’re very excited and hope he likes this new role better than the last.

Have a great day people, or at least try xx

The waiting game

I’m back in it. Waiting forver for AF to arrive, silly old bag. Temps are erratic, horrid low backache which prolly means a cyst…

I dunno what to think to be honest. Just waiting and trying to keep the blog updated though not much has been happening.

What I have been doing though is making my own panties. If nothing else there’ll be lot’s of sexy time lol.

I decided i’m going to start documenting my fave ttc resources with a mini review. I find if I don’t write them down or store them somewhere I forget them so I may as well share.
