Re: Lilliputian
Feb 3, 2004
Sue -- I wish! :) No BFPs for me... On Sunday I just had my third IUI with 150 mg of Clomid. I doubt it worked -- only because I'm soooo tired of getting my hopes up only to have them come crashing down each month. It's put me through the ringer, like so many women on this board. Instead, I'm slowly accepting the concept that I might just not meant to be pregnant. This is not an easy realization at all, but I figure I may as well chew on the idea so that if it indeed happens, I'm mentally prepared. My husband and I are pursuing adoption regardless, and I swear that has changed my life. It is so exciting to meet with our social worker and know that perhaps in a year we will be parents! Unlike with fertility treatments that have a big fat question mark at the end of them, adoption (international at least) is a beautiful open door.

If this IUI didn't work, then we're taking a month or two off and will start up in April with Follistim shots daily with IUI. I've heard Follistim is much better than Clomid (Clomid makes me wacked out -- PMS times 10!), but of course is suuuuper expensive. If that doesn't work, then it's on to IVF, but my husband and i just don't know right now if that's something we want to do. I'm trying not to look too far ahead, but it's hard not to dwell on the possibilities.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, too, my dear! Glad to hear your appt went well. I understand your reluctance to take CLomid, but all I can say is that if your body reacts well to it, not only will you ovulate, but you'll get some big, beautiful ripe eggs! I'm impressed with you (and everyone else) that charts temps. I never had to do that. I always ovulated regularly, but the only problem is that with my elevated FSH level (it's 11 and I'm 29), my eggs just weren't very viable. Clomid has been a great thing for me to help with that.

Are you guys snowed in down there? Holy cow, I was just out shoveling and can't believe how much snow there is! It's a winterwonderland here. Quite lovely, but our streets aren't even plowed yet. Stay warm!!

Thanks for looking out for me, Sue. I posted a few things yesterday so I'm back in action. :) Take care and baby dust to you!

Laura
