ON ME!


Once you think you have something figured out you don't. 


I have been charting temps and B'ding like every 36 hours from CD 9 to CD 28.  Then I pretty much give up. On CD 31 the RE tells me from the bloodwork pulled that I look like I'm still in the middle of a cycle but they want me to come back in 5 days to get an u/s and more b/w. 


In between I get my report from the Endo and have high prolactin levels. OK, so this explains so much, I think!


Yesterday, after the b/w comes back my RE calls me and says I ovulated. WHAT? I O'd between day 31 and 36, the ONLY F*ing time I wasn't B'ding. This is my luck, this is my crappy life. My DH says "I told you we need to do it every other day no matter what" Of course he does, it's his dream.


Needless to say, just in case I still had a chance in H*ll at catching that egg I did it one last time.


The RE says, the cyst they saw on the u/s was probably a follicle. Wish they'd done the u/s on day 31. Oh, and BTW, my blood pressure medicine is probably the cause of my elevated Prolactin levels and it's not much of a big deal. So now I have to change that.


I was so confused and frustrated I wanted to blow my head off last night.  It seems the only way to get it off your brain for even a second. 


Anyway, just a little vent.

hi karen,

(((hugs))) how frustrating! i'm so sorry you (and RE) weren't able to "catch" your O this cycle. it does sound, though, like the pieces of the puzzle are starting to get put together, and hopefully you will pretty soon have optimal conditions for conceiving, as well as know when the best time to BD is!

I don't know when we'll do another IVF. I'd like to first make sure all my meds are in balance and then try to get a somewhat normal natural cycle. We were talking about doing a more simple cyle with Clomid while getting me in balance. I don't want a month to go by that I'm not "trying" but I don't want to waste another IVF either. Once I absorb what the Dr. said yesterday I'll start making a decision. I need to sit down and really think about it. If I'm not careful, it could be April or May before I do another IVF and that seems so far away. I'm just really confused on what to do next.
