S has been having some grumpiness, hot flushes and nausea, but is excited that something is happening that might actually lead to pregnancy! I wonder many things about Clomid. As far as we know, S has been ovulating regularly, and some studies say that Clomid should only be prescribed to folks with ovulatory dysfunction. I am also concerned about it reducing cervical fluid. Have any of you been successful with Clomid? What dosage, how long did you try it, and what CD did you do it on (3-7 or 5-9). If anyone has any interesting articles or info from their RE about Clomid, let me know.
In other news, we had dinner with UD the other night. It was…not terrible. According to UD, H could not make it because she was “busy”. I am (successfully for the moment) not stressing about them. The situation is crappy and our relationships are iffy right now, but I need to be done with the rage and constant internal dialog. I have spent hours and hours and hours talking to them in my head, and it needs to stop.
In the classic style of their family, shit isn’t talked about, and I wasn’t about to stir shit up. Whatever. They are not going to change their minds.
We hope that Clomid is our answer, but we are preparing for an IUI next cycle. Looks like we will need to flat out lie. I tried out the polyamorous thing, and it isn’t flying. S needs to call some obgyns herself and lie about her boyfriend.
I was feeling more hopeful earlier, but familyo’s recent news has me down. That cycle seemed so promising. Co has had all testing and drugs known to woman, and it still is not working. The truth is, it is not working for many of us. At least some of you have the means to do IVF, we really don’t and won’t ever. But even that doesn’t necessarily work. Depressing shit, this is. So please share your Clomid success stories. I could use some cheer.
********Forget what I said! It looks like familyo is knocked up!!! Holy crap, and YAY!!!!!*******
