The road to fertility

So… its been 1 year since we started trying to conceive and it has been such a difficult road. At first we just stopped avoiding it and it was really exciting to be trying to make a baby with the man I love. We waited 9 years to start trying and it never once crossed our minds that we could have difficulty conceiving.

As time passed and we still got negative results, I started to research more about it and started doing OPK (ovulation prediction kit) tests but to my surprise they would never come out positive. The Gyno said I had to try for 1 year before seeking specialized help but the process was is full of ups and downs that I couldnt wait any longer and decided to seek some professional help a on month 10.

They ran all tests on me, my tubes are not blocked, I have plenty follicles, good thickness of lining and good hormone levels. Andy also had a sperm analysis done and although the numbers weren’t great they were definitely normal and the fact that he was extremely dehydrated from drinking the night before didn’t help because is sperm is thicker than normal, spermies can’t swim as well.

Nonetheless, this brought us together and I feel that we are working as a team. We have both cut caffeine and alcohol from our diets and have been taking supplements.

In December we did our first Clomid cycle. I took 100 mg for 5 days. It was a good month, we felt very hopeful, but unfortunately the test was negative… I decided at that point that after so many negative tests I would no longer take them unless I was really late… something about taking the tests made me feel really hopeful even though the symptoms weren’t there.

The following month we switched to Femara, 5 mg. Today is my 14th day after ovulation but I’m pretty sure it didn’t work. I should be getting my period tomorrow or the day after. I really didn’t like this medication, it made me very emotional, I cried a lot this month and had so many head aches. I don’t know if it was related to the pill or not, but it was definitely not my normal.

This week we’ll know for sure whether this round worked or not. I’m really hoping that Im wrong about this and its a big fat positive!

For now, stay positive!

Love, Dani


About Love,DANI

I have recently developed Obsessive Compulsive Blogging Disorder in order to mask the fact that my ability to procreate might be fully dependent on my bank account balance. Some think I'm bossy others think I'm soft, but the truth is I'm a sugglebunny she-ra wine drinking slave working alpha bitch that just wants to have some goddamn babies. is something I've always wanted to do since I was a kid and decided to write down all the things my mom did wrong but blogs didn't exist. So I take notes of things I want to teach my imaginary kids, good and bad. You'll find that I fluctuate between loving and crazy wannabe mom. I hope my kids will read this someday. This one is for my bitches and I write about whatever I want, whatever thought is on my mind that day. Beware, I freely curse ad I'm a firm believer that swear words are here to emphasize my thoughts.
