Well, things didn’t go as well as I liked at the RE’s office yesterday. The lead follicle on the right ovary was only 12 mm. There were two follicles on the left, both at 10 mm. My lining was only 4.5 mm. Suck. Needless to say, we didn’t trigger. I return on CD 16 for another $110 ultrasound, primarily to check the lining and to see if Clomid is a viable option for the next cycle. If I see an LH surge before then, I’ve been instructed to come back in.
Meanwhile, my cervix is lifting, softening and opening and my cervical fluid is becoming more fertile. The OPK’s are gradually getting darker. At least we are headed in the right direction, but I wanted, oh so badly, for Clomid to shorten my cycle. However, beggars can’t be choosers, and I am so very grateful that I ovulate regularly on the metformin.
Thank you, Metformin. Now, excuse me while I go to the bathroom.
My side effects have largely abated. No more hot flashes and my emotions seem to be on an even(er) keel. Life looks a bit better these days. I’m back from that dark place last week. Holy balls, that sucked.
I’m looking forward to the weekend. Big Guy is home after almost two weeks in the field. We are going to eat sushi, watch movies, and laze around the house. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
