Just Checkin' In

They made me wear this at the doctor's office. Weird. LOL
It's been awhile since I updated. Thanks to this lovely strep throat that I have, I have no work for the next 2 days (doctor's orders) and nothing but time to update! :)

This is the last IUI before we figure out our "next step". The nurses told me that we want to make the most of this cycle, so they started me on Clomid a day earlier. I started it on Wednesday and ended on Sunday. As miserable as I was yesterday, I drug myself out of bed and went in for labs and an ultrasound in the morning. I go back tomorrow for more labs and an ultrasound. It looks like I may be triggering tomorrow night and IUI #3 should be on Friday (just guessin'). I made an appointment with the RE to talk about our next step (in case this IUI is unsuccessful) for April 1st. I am nervous about what the next step will be.

Lately I have been thinking about taking a break from TTC to get myself healthy...especially after stepping on the scale at the doctors office yesterday. :/ I have let myself gain too much weight in the last two years. I really need to get it under control. I just don't want to keep pushing off starting a family. I guess I have a few weeks to make up my mind on this subject.

Sometimes stepping back a bit gives you a needed mental break lol. I did the diet thing to occupy me and it worked, I felt so much better about myself in general. Good luck to you on this IUI, I'll be keeping you in my prayers :) Hope you get to feeling better.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for following me! I'm so glad I found your blog, too. It sounds like you and I are in the same situation - clomid/IUI and also wanting to get healthier. I started crying this morning upon realizing that I've gained 15 pounds since mid-January. So depressing. I hope that this journey is short and as painless as possible for you.
