I took a break from the boards after not getting pg before Darling Husband left to go offshore for work for 6 weeks. It was really tough on me:( Totally sucked to watch the CBEFM hit peaks and not even have a chance.
I will post a seperate post to explain why I ovulated late so that others can be aware of something that can cause that, but basically, ovulating later than usual threw off our timing for this month too, as Darling Husband will end up leaving to return to his offshore job on CD11. Yeah, devastating. He’s gone for a month. I almost lost it when I realized that. I knew I could’t handle a second month in a row with no chances.
Long story short, I realized that I don’t need a referral to an RE. And I have BCBS NJ which is one of the states mandated to cover fertility stuff. So I got my OB to recommend an RE, and we went in last week, he put me on 50mg Clomid for CD 3-7 to try to make sure I gear to Ovulate earlier in my cycle, and I go in on Tuesday (CD 10) for another ultrasound to see if I am ready for a trigger shot. As most of you know, the trigger shot induces ovulatation within 48 hours.
So there’s a chance that if I’m able to trigger Tues or Wed, and Darling Husband leaves Wed, that by some sliver of a miracle, we could possibly have a shot at getting pg.
I know it sounds nuts to go through all this, but not getting pg makes us all desperate, and not even having an opportunity to get pg is just unbearable.
The good news is that I’m not using my CBEFM because the RE is my monitor. And that is alleviating a lot of stress for some reason. I think I have a love-hate relationship with that thing. I get so anxious for a peak that every morning it’s still on high, I start to think “What if I don’t ovulate this month??!!?”
So that’s it for me. Clomid has made me sweat to death at night, which is why I’m up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday. And it’s made me super emotional. I cry over ANYTHING.
We also went ahead and did a full fertility workup. I love how aggressive REs are! So I should get results on Tues at my US. DH also got his “guys” checked, so now we just wait to see if we get a passing grade, and if I’m ready to trigger around the time Darling Husband leaves.
Congratulations to all the ladies on here that got BFPs! I cruised through and was really happy to see so many names I recognized as being KU! Here’s to many more in the upcoming month:)
ETA: This will be Cycle 3 of hardcore, CBEFM, Preseed, standing-on-head-afterwards TTC, and I know that’s nothing compared to what others have dealt with, I’m just in a crazy position because of Darling Husband being home 4 weeks, and then gone 4 weeks. So that is where my desperation comes in to play…I hope no one thinks I’m nuts for going to an RE at month 3, but it’s really just because I have to try to control things more so that we can get the timing right. For me, if I’m not pg one month, it actually counts as 2 because he’ll be gone the next month. It. Sucks. In March, he’ll be 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off, but March is too far away!
Just wanted to add that in case it seemed insensitive to others who have had a longer road. I don’t think that 3 months TTC is cause for concern, but 3 months TTC for us adds up to a lot longer in months, so that’s why I went even more hard-core. I hope everyone understands my craziness!
