Is injection next for you?  Or another round of Clomid first?  If it is the injection, make sure you tell me how it was…I am a little nervous about that.  We ordered my first one early and now it is sitting in the fridge.  We need to try the higher dose of Clomid first though.

@Sweet Kate  Good luck!! I know it’s expensive, but at least 50% is covered for you!!  I have to have a myomectomy soon to remove a bunch of fibroids in order to get pregnant and I’ll miss 4-6 weeks of work and I don’t have any sick or vacation time to cover that. So, essentially we’ll be paying a few thousand towards getting pregnant by me having the surgery. It sucks, I know. 🙁

Oh, Jenn, I was thinking about you a little while ago.  4-6 weeks?  Wow.  I am so sorry you have to go through that. 

Are either of you keeping track of # of tubes of blood taken?  Haha…maybe I am just coping in an odd way!  I am only up to 21 (#22 will be monday), so not too bad overall.  But I can’t wait til my teenager acts up, and I can say “You better respect me…It took “x” tubes for me to even get pregnant for you!!!!!”

@heathaah: Thanks. Yep, the recovery is a loooong and painful one. Lovely. Whatever it takes though, right?!!  That’s so funny you mention that (about future teenager) because I’ve been telling my husband I’ll say the same thing some day. “I had 15 fibroids removed to have you!!”  🙂
