Femara

July 14th, 2011.  CD6. 

So, from what I’ve heard/read about Femara (letrozole), the side effects are supposed to be less severe than those I experienced with Clomid.

I’ll give them this–the severity may be less, but the side effects are definitely still there.

I can live with the hot flashes.  There have been no night sweats thus far, thankfully.  The blinding headache I’ve had the past two days is starting to make me think it’s more related to Femara than caffeine.  I’ve also been dreadfully thirsty, but then again, it’s been  H O T  out there lately.

Oh, and the fatigue… I am so tired right now, I don’t think I will have the energy to go back and proofread.  Spell check will be getting a workout today, for sure.  I apologize if this post is rambling, but I’m just so darn sleepy!

Anyway, I’m about halfway through the Femara bottle:  two more little yellow pills tonight, and two more tomorrow night.  After that, it’s just a waiting game till my CD13 ultrasound appointment next Thursday.  I hope to be growing some big fat follicles!

I’m still not looking forward to giving myself a shot, but I suppose if the ultimate goal here is to squeeze a baby out of my delicates, I better get used to a little pain.

This kid better be worth it… 🙂

A New Hope

May 4th, 2011.  CD5.

Today is Star Wars Day.

May the Fourth be with you… Get it?  May the Fourth?

Baaaaahahahahaha…

I’m endlessly amused by wordplay and silly puns and Star Wars in general, so this whole celebration has been right up my alley.

But hey, this blog is not about how much of a nerd I am, it’s about how infertile I am!  While both of those things are rather pitiful, let’s get back to the topic at hand, shall we?

Whatever. I’m Getting Cheese Fries.

April 21st, 2011.  CD26.

Well, my temp did rise this morning, but not by an impressive amount.  I guess my Ob-Gyn was right–I do have a weak natural ovulation.

I’ve been wondering why that is a lot lately.  I think that’s why I started reading about PCOS.  Now, I know I’ve said in the past that self-diagnosing is not the way to handle things, but it’s tough to sit patiently and wait for my appointment with the fertility clinic in June.  Maybe if we don’t call it “Google Diagnosis” and refer to it as something like “educating myself on the possibilities”, it will all sound less crazy.

Who’s in favor of less crazy?

Oooh, ooh–ME!

What to Expect: When You’re Expecting to Expect

When I got married a little over two years ago, I never expected that I would be here–a veritable science experiment of a woman, working my little fingers to the bone trying to get pregnant, and burdening the world with my tragic woes via the internet. I also had no idea that I’d probably been
