Here we go again

I had my D&C (medical procedure to remove fetus) on 4/27/09. The Dr wants us to wait 3 normal cycles before trying again. Well I am now on day 5 of the 2nd cycle. Each usually lasting about 27-28 days. So for those of you brilliant mathmaticians that makes about 22 long grueling days to go. Then two weeks to try and then another two weeks to find out if I am indeed knocked up again. Time goes by pretty slow, so maybe this blog will help. Anyways, so in the meantime we are not really preventing, but given our past history I do not expect this to happen on it's on. I will call my Dr on day 1 of my next cycle and get prescribed Clomid once again. I will take it on day 5-9 and go in on day 10 for an ultrasound for them to see if my little follicles and uterus are looking good. Then I will probably be given a patch of estrogen to wear which makes the lining of my uterus thicker for the egg to implant in. And in the meantime of doing all this I wake up at 6am every morning and stick a thermometer in my mouth to see what my temperature is. This is called charting your cycle because believe it our not you can tell exactly when you will start a cycle, ovulate during a cycle, and then if you are going to start agian or are pregnant. Oh and about days 10-15 i pee on a stick to see if i'm about to ovulate. WHEW this thing is so exhausting, but I have to remind myself that the outcome will outway any of this craziness. So anyway right now I am just waiting :)

I'm SO glad you decided to blog about the craziness!!! It really helps me to put things into words on a screen. "Computer therapy". We pray for you and Robert all the time and I don't know anyone who I would be happier for than you if you find out you're pregnant. Your friendship has meant the world to me!!!
