Had some confusion with the nurse and doctor - apparently the nurse was trying to go one route and the doctor another. We are now on Femara again - this time taking it at night and starting it a day late. I'm going to be temping, also a couple days late start but that's ok, at least I'm going to be trying it. Wish me luck!!

Well now I have to go to Target and get the meds for tomorrow. Not looking forward to the lovely side effects again. This time I'm going to be doing temps along with the ovulation kits. We'll see what works best.

Well the end of the cycle is here... AF is coming slowly and I can tell the signs of it. Altleast this cycle I ovulated and we know the meds work. But I'm scared and skittish of going through it again this next cycle.

Well we finally got good news that I ovulated on day 17ish lol - my progesterone level went up to a good level with the test on Tuesday. Now its just a little longer waiting day. Adding 4 days to my cycle making it a 32 day cycle. If nothing comes, then I call the University and get some more testing done. If it wasn't for Melissa, I wouldn't have known (she looked at my ultrasound), I wouldn't have continued having 'fun' and we wouldn't have had a chance - everyone else would have that I didn't O this cycle too. THANK YOU Melissa!!

Well we got the day 21 test back and its low BUT the good news is that we had an ultrasound done thanks to the kidney stones and my gf who is an ultrasound tech read it and saw the good egg (there was a bad one too) and said I hadn't ovulated before Sunday and that is the reason the test is soo low. It was 1.16 and it should be above 5. So I'm retaking the test on Tuesday the 21st - will be cycle day 26. Seems to make sense to me and the nurse. She wants to see the ultrasound too so I have to send it to them. Still dealing with a slight cold I think, runny nose, bloody nose. Cramping and sore boobs still.

Well this may be TMI (too much info lol) but my boobs will not stop hurting since CD 16. Its been a non stop rollercoaster of pain. From swollen and sore to right out if you even think of touching me I'll smack ya. Amber walked by and accidentally brushed me and OMG the pain! So its the hormones, the lovely pills enhanced the reactions of everything. I go tomorrow to get my blood drawn to double check and prove that I O'd. Then I just have to wait 8 days to see if my period decides to show up. The count down begins!

I think I ovulated this week... the OPK tests are not working with me lol. But we'll see, this thursday I go for my day 21 testing and see if I did ovulate this cycle.
Small hold over as Friday I went into the ER for a ruptured internal kidney issue and small 2mm stone. Spent the night and they think the stone passed and the kidney will heal itself.
So back to my normal programming of trying to get pregnant lol. They did an ultrasound first thinking the drugs were causing issues but obviously they were not. But I did get a clear shot of my ovaries and uterus. They saw two small cysts on my right ovary... so either I had ovulated or I'm starting too. I think day15 would be late to 'start', normally by then they are ready to go. So we'll see, we're gonna have fun this week just encase :)
Can't wait for Thursday and I get a copy Monday of my ultrasound to look more closely at :)

I've been taking the OPK tests for the last 3 days and there's just a thin pink line lighter than the standard one. So no ovulation yet. I will say I'm still loosing weight, gotta love it! Keeping my exercise up and trying not to eat horribly - which means water and juice for drinks and no fast food. I was soo tempted yesterday lol. I did get the ovulation cramping again this morning but who knows how long that will last before it happens.

Wow these pills have just messed with my emotions... I'm crying at the drop of a hat over nothing. But I do think they worked... having ovulation pains today. I took my first OPK test today its shows a very very faint line. So hopefully by the end of the week :)
