Shout out

Mel over at Stirrup Queens was nominated for the 2008 Weblog Awards. So go vote for her, will ya? I want to see her win, her website really opened the blog world of infertility up to me. It was a catalyst, it even moved me to start my own blog. And if you don't know who Mel is, well go check her out... and then vote for her ;)


In other news, I think I'll call this cycle quits tomorrow... or maybe the next day. Who knows. I hate this part of the cycle, giving up and bringing on the next round.

I will be doing Clomid next cycle, so we'll see how that goes. It's my last time doing Clomid (Unless it makes me ovulate, which would be a freaking miracle.) I'm going to take them weird. See, Clomid makes me start to respond, but then my ovaries don't follow through. The cycle I was monitored my ovaries started making 4 follicles, but by the end of the week when I came in for another ultrasound all 4 had reabsorbed. Crap, if you ask me. (Ovaries, what were you thinking?) So, I'm going to take the Clomid longer than normal at 150mg, instead of doing the 200mg in 5 days. We'll see how that goes. Probably won't make a difference, but who knows.

I'm sure it will at least give me a headache. It always does. (Thanks Clomid.)

Ugh...I think clomid is the devil. Have they suggest letrozole? It still gave me CRAZY hot flashes, but it was the one time that I actually got a positive PG test...if only for a few days. Good luck - I hope the clomid works.

Well, for one, I am already voting for Mel - and she opened new doors for me as well.

Second, I really don't know what to say about the Clomid issues. Hope that you are able to do good with it this time.
