My ovaries looked good on yesterday’s scan, but I do have what appears to be a clot in my uterus. It’s right in the center (ironically where I was feeling that strange pain/cramp). They think it will resolve on its own and they went ahead and gave me a prescription for Femara. I took my first dose last night. Holy nausea. My stomach is finally starting to settle down a little bit, but generally, I am still feeling sluggish. I hope that the next few doses won’t be as intense.
The next appointment is one week from today. I hope I have at least one beautiful follie waiting for a weekend IUI. In the meantime, I have a lot to keep me busy. And speaking of keeping busy, I really need a good fertility yoga DVD recommendation. One of my friends gave me an amazon.com gift card for my birthday. I already plan to order Unsung Lullabies (thank you, Ashley, for the recommendation!), but I would like to order a fertility yoga DVD, too. So if you know of any, please pass the information along.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes and the words of encouragement. They meant a lot yesterday. I never meant to sound depressed; more like bittersweet. This was just another childless milestone, another reminder of how long it’s been since we started trying. You would think this would get easier with each milestone, but somehow it doesn’t. Every holiday, birthday, and anniversary still gnaws at my heart.
