I officially have entered the medication phase of this fertility “stuff”….
Clomid, days 3-7 (Start 3/27)….
Follicle Ultrasound day 12 (4/5)
I have no idea what to expect….but I have decided to ****Try**** not to read the accompanying information (side effects) on the meds. I am so thankful for Tyler and my FT ladies because this process is even harder when you have no one to talk to about it.
Funny story, although I don’t think all involved will classify it as “funny”. I have told my boss, who has become a friend about my home inseminations, and that I am using a donor, a known donor. I truly thought she had figured out that Tyler is the donor. (FYI- Tyler works with me if I have not mentioned that before). So, I was just talking, ranting, going nuts processing all of this with her the other day and she said…”who is your donor” . I said “I think you know”, and in all sincerity thought she did. She looked at me for what felt like a long moment and said “well I do now”. Her face in that moment though- it was classic. Shortly after this conversation- Tyler and I were taking a dinner break and I felt guilty for telling without asking his permission first and I was thinking of how to tell him and I pictured my bosses face and got the giggles. I admitted to him what I had done. He was surprised but promises me he is not mad. But- the funny part is that like 10 minutes after my boss comes into the office we were eating in, expecting just me to be inside and she see’s Tyler and just stops- and says “Ohhh, crap.. I forgot what I wanted”. The awkward factor cannot be stressed enough. Not for me- but for her- and poor Tyler. Since then I swear, many comments have been made- not about that or related to it but those moments where you just know someone wants to say something but isn’t brave enough to actually do it.
I spent the last hour googling HCG trigger shots- trying to find out the names of meds so I can look up at least the basic info so I know what med it is and I am finding all sorts of other meds available for fertility I didn’t know existed. I have a very love-hate relationship with google!
