So I went to my RE yesterday since as expected CD1 was Saturday. They took blood and did a sono and all was good. My insurance required at least 2 medicated cycles to be approved for IVF if these cycles fail. So I am on 100mg of clomid for CD3-7 and I go back on CD 11 to see what my progress is.
Hoping beyond hope that these IUI’s will work but I am realistic that IVF will be what gets us pregnant again.
I turn 35 today and I honestly do not feel older than I did when I turned 30!!! Age is purely a number and its really how you feel both mind and body!!!
I did enjoy celebrating my birthday with my friends this weekend and in the end that is what matters the most!!!
So as expected IUI#1 has failed. I went into my RE having tested last night and stark white on the HPT!!! I have resigned myself that IUI’s will not work for me but I just need to do 3 to be able to get approved for IVF. It sucks that I have to even go through this stupid process if in the end IVF is our only solution but whatever. I asked the NP if I could have a less monitored IUI process and use OPK’s at home and call when I am surging and they said that would be ok. That will save me time and money in copays. Now its time to wait for AF which should be here either Saturday or Sunday. My CD3 appointment is Monday which so happens to be my 35th birthday!!! Yay for having a wand up my vajayjay on my bday!!!
So I was on a pretty good program of eating well and working out as I was gearing up for my vacation and after we returned I fell off the wagon. I started eating poorly and stopped working out completely. I noticed that my sugar cravings have been getting worse as well so I think my addiction to sugar is coming back.
I know that I need to stop it and stop or curb my eating of processed foods as well as start back on my good habits of drinking water and working out.
I weighed myself this morning and I weigh 183.6lbs which is not where I want to be. Today is a new day and I will start back on my plan!!!
