Thank you so much all of you, for your helpful comments.
Here is our current situation:
1. S has very little cervical fluid, due to the Clomid. Like scant. So I bought some Pre-Seed. I did some research and finally found a study that was not performed by the company that makes it, and it looks good, so we are going to use it unless you think we shouldn’t.
2. No LH surge yet. NOTHING. not even a faint line. The estrogen line on the monitor sticks is gone, and has been for two days (indicating her estrogen is high which happens right before the LH surge, typically). In this case though, I think that the Clomid has increased her estrogen. And the LH is nowhere to be found. Granted, we are only on CD13.
3. I put a call in to our doctor, asking if she will prescribe an HcG shot. It is her day off, and we are waiting to hear back from her office. If she does prescribe it, and we do it at like 6pm tonight, S will ovulate 36 hours later, right? So here’s the question:
Rocket Man leaves tomorrow morning at 6am, so we can do a 6am insem on Wednesday morning (cd14) and will not be able to do another one until Thursday night (cd15). If S does the trigger shot she won’t ovulate until 6 AM on Thursday morning. So she would have insemmed 24 hours prior to ovulation – which is usually fine, except that S has little cervical fluid, but we are using the pre-seed. Ummmmmmm. Sooooooooo. What the fuck do we do?
We could also wait and hope that S does not ovulate on Thursday, but on Friday, after we insem again on Thursday night. We really have no way of telling when S ovulates though…seeing as her cervical fluid is scant already and her temps are being WONKY, as they never have before (due to her head cold, or Clomid??).
To sum up the options are: 1. trigger (assuming our doctor calls us today and prescribes it) and ovulate 24 hours after inseminating, or 2. wait for her to get an LH surge and insem Wed morning and Thursday night regardless, and hope for the best.
I thought fresh insems were supposed to be easier! This Clomid thing has thrown us for a loop. And OMG thank you so much for your knowleageble advice and experiences. Holy crap, I don’t know what I’d do without you people.
