Well, today we will take the first real step in our first real month of IUI (intra-uterine insemination). I guess the Clomid could be considered step one, but I decided starting my steps posts with the number two would make you feel you had missed something. (Yes, there is a good chance this will be the only one, but I like to sometimes believe I am going to stick with a strategy on posting...). Anyway, I am going to the doctor today to get an ultrasound to see how my egg(s) are doing and get the date I should be ovulating. I am not extremely optimistic that they will be able to see anything today, but I will be happy to go and take a look!
The problem is that today is only day ten of my cycle, and although I am sure Clomid is a magical drug, I am just not positive it will be able to make me ovulate on a nice normal day like fourteen in it's very first month. Could be totally wrong here, but I am expecting them to take a look, say it is to early, and tell me to come back next week.
Once they figure out when I am ovulating, they will pinpoint the day, and I will be given a shot to take at home the night before. That will all be step two, so I will share that later. Don't want to bore you with to much fertility talk all at once! I will tack on here, just as an update, that I am exhausted. Like fall asleep at the computer tired. I worked in the main lab again yesterday and am clocking a lovely amount of overtime. Unfortunately I do work this weekend (Fortunate for the money, unfortunate for the tired factor) but I have a glorious week off coming up here soon. Cannot wait.
