I can't believe I'm already a week into this next cycle. Just last Sunday when the witch arrived, time seemed to slow down. But here we are, somehow another week gone by. I'm trying to be more optimistic this time, so how about this for optimism...I'm officially 1 week pregnant.
Lol. Isn't it kinda funny that we start counting pregnancy weeks from the LMP, so the counter starts even before conception. This time around, I'm starting my own counter. I don't want to get a ticker (cause that would just be silly, although I did consider it), but it feels good in a way to think of myself as 1 week pregnant instead of CD 7.
So far, minimal side effects from femara...some hot flashes and maybe one day of mood swings.
We'll start BD'ing tomorrow (to flush out the old sperm!) and I'll start my OPKs on Tuesday. As long as I don't have a surge before Friday, then I'll go for my monitoring ultrasound on Friday (CD 13) and then do trigger shot and IUI on Saturday. Only 1 week from today! I can't wait. I really hope it works with IUI and that I have at least 1, but hopefully 2 or 3 good follicles. I'm nervous that I'll miss my surge or ovulate earlier and not be able to do IUI, but I really am trying to relax and just let it happen. On Clomid, I ovulated on CD 17-19, then CD 16 (with trigger shot), then apparently CD 15 (based on my cycle length since I wasn't temping or monitoring. I heard that Femara can move up ovulation day, but I'm still thinking that CD 13 will be okay for my monitoring ultrasound. Anyone on femara have any experience with this???? Should I move up my monitoring ultrasound????
In other news, I started running again as well as hot yoga, which is incredible. I was pretty sore this morning, but I feel great and I can't wait for the next class!!
Have a great weekend. I'm on call today and tonight, so I'm just hoping to get a little bit of sleep.
