When I went to the RE we decided we would go very low intervention. Three cycles with just clomid/stim. Thats it. RE feels that if you don't get pregnant after 3 months your chances are very low that you will get pregnant. Without major intervention. Since we already have 3 kids we decided to just try low intervention and pray. Well first cycle I had one good follicle. BFN. Second cycle I had 5 very good follicles. BFN Third cycle. Well, on Friday March 13 I got a dreaded phone call from the state police. My father had collapsed and they were taking him to the hospital. Turns out he had a massive heart attack and died instantly. Of course we were all devastated. My dad was the rock of our family. My children are crushed. My mom is too. Anyway, I went to Baltimore when I got the call and stayed there until this past Sunday. Yup, missed my ovulation. Not that I felt like BD when I am sad but you know, I would have just because this was my last cycle. I am so upset. Not just about my dad but also because my RE wont prescribe more clomid without first doing a sperm analysis and HCG. Which, as I said we don't want to do since insurance wont cover it and we already spent almost 3k and also because my husband is religious and doesn't believe in too much intervention. Not sure where I am going with this? I guess I just needed to get it off my chest. Most people may not understand my being upset over losing the cycle given the fact that we lost my dad but I am. Is that wrong? My only hope is I am taking DHEA and my RE did say that they have seen positives a month or two after stopping clomid. I guess it stays in your system or maybe just kick starts the ovaries again.
