First follow up appointment post chlomid trial

Well the first two chlomid trials are over with, unfortunately still no baby.

But there was good news at the appointment, I definitely ovulated on the chlomid and it was a good high number, so I have been sent away with another two months of chlomid, and instructions to keep trying!!!

He was also pleased with my weight loss so far which was just over 5kg since my last appointment and to keep going with what I am doing.

Our next steps are, if we still do not fall pregnant, I will again be given the undiagnosed fertility problems heading and will be refereed for IVF, but my BMI needs to be as close to 30 as possible in order for them to see me.

We will have the chance of an insemination procedure with no drugs (just a plain old turkey basting) and a full treatment of IVF.

I have had some setbacks this week after realising returning to work full time while studying a nearly full time degree and trying for a baby was just too much for me to cope with right now, so I have parted company with my new job, which was devastating as I loved them and the work was good.

But onwards and upwards I am on the hunt for a part time role which will give me the chance to study and cope better with everything else in my life.

I will be posting my first GYM session next week, I know how terrifying going to the gym alone can be, but they know what I am there for and are happy to help me so I am going for it!!!

Hope there is plenty of baby dust out there for my readers who are trying and some for me too.

The Long Wait

So it is 6 days till my next period and I have done my last Chlomid trial earlier in the month, why does the run up to your next period seem like a never ending road of hell.

I start a new job tomorrow so I am hoping that my week will go a bit faster as I will be keeping busy for a change, I am resigned to the fact that I am likely to not be pregnant, and the IVF is our journey, but no matter what I still spend my time agonising over the wait.

You would think after 10 years I would be more chilled about these things but I am not.

I picked up my gym membership on friday so my fitness kick is all set to go, I am going to review the gym and the classes, so if you would like to know anything about one in particular let me know and I will do my best to take a class for you, I have been asked to give zumba a go by a friend who loves how fun it looks but is worried about following the moves.

I hope everyone is well, and if you are on the trying to conceive journey I will be sending out good thoughts to you all. xx
