So went to the doctor today. There was some good news, some bad news, and some irrelevant news. lol. (i'm 90% sure that's a quote from the office) anyways. So the good news is that my ovaries had very few cysts on them! Lefty was even in the range of normal people just a little "plump" nice doctor thought it was incredibly amusing that the radiologist used the word plump cause apparently he'd never heard a radiologist use that word to describe anything, let alone ovaries.
The bad news is that in the region of Righty there are varicose veins in my pelvis which can lead to Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. Apparently this explains a lot of the random twinges of pain i've been having. Nice doctor says that if the pain gets worse, the worst case scenario is i'll wind up needing surgery to go in an fix them. Luckily though, this doesn't interfere with any of our fertility plans.
Now for the irrelevant news? I got my prescription for clomid and i'm picking it up today. My cycle is supposed to start today, it's apparently just dragging its heels and refusing to start. lol. So once it starts, which is gonna be counted as day 1, i wait and take the clomid on days 5-9, and then we have sex every other day on days 10-20 and take my BBT on those days as well. Then on day 21-23 i get blood drawn to check progesterone levels to see if ovulation occured. Then there's a pitchfork in the road. lol. Either we get pregnant, i don't ovulate and we don't and i have to start provera too, or i do ovulate but don't get pregnant and do another clomid cycle. But i like this, i feel like we're actually doing something proactive and positive and taking that first scientific step towards a baby. No more just relying on blind luck and hoping for a miracle.
So wish us luck! Here's to hoping that we are one of those crazy lucky couples who gets pregnant on the first round of clomid, hey, it could happen, right?!!? totally.
