Round three has finally started! Unfortunately, it’s while I was taking the hormone altering medication, that a string of pregnancy announcements have happened. Suddenly it feels like everyone around me is pregnant (or just had a baby). I’m trying hard to be 100% happy for them, but it stings. I managed to get out a congratulations plus a few questions, before going somewhere private to shed a few tears. Honestly, there is no harder reminder that you can’t have children , than a pregnancy announcement. I’m hoping that once I finish the Metformin and Clomid rounds that things will get a little easier and I can get my emotions under control a little easier.
As a general rule, we don’t tell anyone when we are trying for a baby. It’s already hard enough with constant disappointments. We don’t really want to add any (well meaning) people constantly asking how things are going, stating how sad it is, or giving “helpful” pieces of advice.
However, my bestie guessed we were trying (the health kick was reminiscent of the one we did to conceive Our Little Man) so we came out and told her. It is a little bit of a relief having someone else to talk to about it.
We went and got a scan done and we have one follicle bigger than the others. The only problem is, it is way smaller than it should be at this time. The Dr said to try and if there is no luck at 28 days, to start again on the next cycle.
We have also started to monitor my temps of a morning to see if we can pinpoint ovulation. That is, if it happens.
Unfortuneately my Bestie had to quit exercising due to an injury. I’m worried that my motivation will wane now that I don’t have an exercise buddy. I’m going to do my best to stay strong though.
Once again, nothing happening this week. I still have managed to keep on the exercise and healthy eating despite losing my exercise buddy, I’m just hoping it all helps and we will get some good news soon.
