CD 3!

Yesterday, we returned home from a fun weekend in Washington DC… We met up with my Mom, stepdad, and brother and had a blast eating great food, relaxing in the hotel’s hot tub, and visiting awesome museums. But the best part about the trip? AF decided to come along too! Now normally, I would not welcome her presence during a weekend getaway with my hubby, however, this time it made me happy…. Because now I can officially start a real treatment cycle! Since she came on Saturday, I went in for my Day 3 monitoring (ultra sound and blood work) this morning. My nurse just called and said that my blood work came back normal and that I have lots of cute little follicles (she did not use the word cute... but I'm sure that they are VERY cute) and that my lining looks good…. Meaning… I start my Clomid tonight! I am a little nervous about some of those nasty side effects I’ve heard about but I’m sure it will be okay…. so bring it on Clomid... I'm eager to get to know you over the next five days....


  1. We are truly cycle sisters! I'm CD4 and start clomid either today or tomorrow (I'll find out at my sonogram in 30 minutes). What dose are you on?

    Feeling any better on the metformin? Hope all is well : )

  2. YAY! I just read your posts! Exciting! I love that there are more people out there going through the same thing!

    I'm on 50 mg of Clomid... I just took my first pill! :) I almost took a picture of myself taking it but I thought that might be a little over the top...

    And yes, feeling MUCH better on the Metformin! I can't even tell I'm on it anymore.

    Good luck with this cycle! I will be reading and rooting for you!

  3. Hi! I noticed you became a follower of my blog today. I haven't been a great blogger lately but I thought I'd say hi. Good luck with the clomid! I never had any problems or side effects while taking it. I took 50 mg for awhile and then upped to 100 mg, which brought me my precious baby girl. I hope you will have success with it!

  4. Hi Jill! Thank you for the comment! I read your blog from the beginning the other day and I LOVED it! :) Your little girl is precious and so are Sophie and Lucy!... I hope I have as much success as you did!

  5. Well I hate to brag but almost all of the blogs I read have had success since I started reading! So I'll just keep reading and before long you'll be right there with us all. :)
