Day: July 31, 2012


One year ago today, I charted a note about cloudy urine and some urine odor.

One year ago tomorrow, I charted about starting a course of antibiotics for a UTI.

I was on my first Femara + Ovidrel cycle then, and I started the antibiotic after I had ovulated.

Today, I noticed some cloudy urine and urine odor.  I am hoping to ovulate later this week…

I’m calling Dr. K tomorrow to see what he recommends, but jeez… this isn’t looking good.

Anyone out there have any success stories about UTIs and/or antibiotics during ovulation/the TWW?


As you can see, I am grasping at straws here.  Just trying to cling to hope that ten days worth of shots to the belly-fat will not be for naught.


Tuesday, you are a bitch.


Terrific Tuesday: Now with MORE SHOTS!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012.  CD15.

You know that old saying about how expectations are the source of all disappointment?

Yeah.  That one.

So at this morning’s monitoring ultrasound, things sounded pretty good.

I have three decent-looking follies: a 17.5, a 15, and a 13.

My lining is 12.5, which the NP said is “freaking amazing – good enough for triplets!” (Umm… GAH!).

So when the doc called to let me know the plan, I expected him to tell me to trigger tomorrow.


I am to continue the Menopur tonight and tomorrow night, and unless I get a positive OPK result, I am to Trigger on THURSDAY.

While I’m happy that they are letting things mature before triggering, I am not so enthused about the SHOTS.

I mean, come on.  I had to shoot up in a public bathroom at a baseball game last night.  Jeez.

Oh well.

Big girl panties are on.

Bring on the needles.
