Day: April 1, 2013

The Plan

Monday, April 1st, 2013.  CD20.

Have I update you all on what the next step is for me?

I can’t remember, and am too lazy to read back through all of my own nonsense.

So I’ll just tell you…

I’m currently twenty days into this cycle and I’m fairly certain I haven’t yet ovulated.

Great, right?


Anyway, I’m also slowly increasing my dosage of Metformin.  I started 1000mg last night, and I don’t feel completely awful today.  Still some GI ickiness, but not as bad as the first dose, so that’s something.  I’ll move up to 1500 mg next weekend, and hopefully I can maintain that level.

I’m also still taking 5000iu of Vitamin D3, my Rx Prenatal, and Pregnitude every day, along with weekly acupuncture.  I’ve moved away from the Chinese herbs because of everything else I’m taking, but the fact that I haven’t ovulated this month is making me wonder if maybe I chose incorrectly.

Anyway, I’ll talk more with the acu-lady about herbs during this week’s appointment, but I have a more pressing matter in front of me at the moment.

The plan for my next cycle is to go forward with a hybrid Femara/Gonal F cycle, and if the monitoring looks good, maybe IUI as well.

Insurance won’t cover any further injectable meds for me, so the Gonal F will be paid out of pocket.  I may be able to get the Ovidrel covered, but no guarantees.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to order Gonal F Rff 300iu pens for as little as possible?  It might be tax return season, but we’re not rolling in extra cash these days!

I’ll happily take any suggestions.  🙂

Thanks, all!

I hope your April Fool’s Day is filled with the minimum amount of fools this year.




In case you haven’t seen this floating around FacebookLand, here’s a fantastic way to squash any of your so-called friends’ wayward thoughts of SUUUUPER creative April Fool’s Day false pregnancy jokes.

(Thankfully, I haven’t seen any yet today, but in previous years I’ve seen them all over…)

I hope your day is Fool-free!!
