It started out well enough- I responded to the Femara, I had one mature follicle, we triggered.
And then it went to hell in a hand basket.
Now maybe it's because of the Femara, or something weird is going on with my thermometer (highly doubt that, as it seemed to work fine when I tested it)... but in my 2 years of charting my basal body temperature, I like to think I've got my body figured out to a science. I know that after the trigger that temps aren't always reliable, I've charted after the trigger every single time- for me the temps always sky rocket and generally start high and rocky for 3 days before calming the fuck down (and then they still stayed above the coverline). So I was expecting that this time... and what did I get? No temp rise at all. Tuesday was five days after the trigger, and still no temp rise.
I would say that I am freaking out, but that would be an understatement.
Yeah, I know that some women will experience this and most people say to just stop temping while being monitored because the temps aren't as accurate- but in the past 2 years, with all these cycles, my BBT has always been accurate. Trigger or no trigger, medicated or not, ovulatory or anovulatory... it's always been accurate. I don't know what to think, unless the Femara made it extra wonky or there is just something else going on altogether...
I am frustrated.
I am also very emotional right now, and I keep almost crying at the drop of a hat. Is it the medicine, is it the frustration, the worry, the unknown, the timing of everything, the realization that I should have been due in 3 weeks with my last miscarriage- I don't know, but I am tried of feeling like this.
I got my doctor to agree to giving me a progesterone draw on Friday- because otherwise I am just going to drive myself insane. I started my progesterone vaginal supplements tonight, and I'm told it shouldn't affect the progesterone blood serum levels... so we'll see.
I feel like I am going batty and over-analyzing this, but seriously... this worries me.
Also, I've been having some cramping like I get pre-new cycle...
That's not helping one freakin' bit!
This cycle blows, and I just want it to be over with already.
I think I prefer my Clomid cycles now... (*sigh*)
Reminder: The free book drawing is still going on, and I haven't had any entries yet. Deadline is the 28th- free ttc book up for grabs! See previous post for details and to enter.
