A Few Good Follicles

I had my follicle ultrasound today. My lining looked good for this point in my cycle, so they aren’t concerned about it now. It’s 12 mm thick and looks healthy. I have an 14 mm follicle on the left and an 18 mm follicle on the right and my estrogen level is 188, so it’s [...]

Let’s See

Tomorrow is my ultrasound to check my follicle growth and my lining. At my last ultrasound, the nurse was concerned (again) about my lining being thick. I didn’t think much of it at the time, because it’s been commented before and I’d been bleeding for less than a day at that point. However, I noticed [...]

No such luck

I didn’t get my Christmas BFP. And now, I’m 14 or 15 DPO and my tests are still negative. So month 18 has come and (almost) gone and we’re not pregnant. A year and a half and no sticky baby. 2011 comes to a close and we aren’t adding to our family again. I didn’t [...]

All I want for Chirstmas…

Like every other TTCer, all I want for Christmas this year is a BFP! Today I’m 9 DPO (possibly 8), which means I’ll be 13 (or 12) DPO on Christmas. I tested today, but it was BFN. I’m going to try to hold off testing again until Sunday. I’ve been feeling kinda weird the last [...]

Time to wait

Surprisingly, I had a positive OPK yesterday on CD 13. I’ve never ovulated that early before, so I guess Femara is doing some good things. I have noticed very few side effects too. My CM is better than on Clomid too. The only thing I have noticed for sure is that my breasts are sore. [...]
