Jinxed Myself

Today is CD3, I just knew when I wrote the last post that I was screwing up all hope that things would fall into place. Now here's hoping next cycle isn't 44 days long.

Every year (before the New Year) Amy and I compile a list of 5 things we want to accomplish in the upcoming year. My list for 2007 was:

1. Learn to knit
2. Go to a play
3. Get married
4. Train Campbell to be a therapy dog
5. Finish Amy's quilt

I got all of the above accomplished but #5 so now I am madly sewing away in an attempt to get Amy's quilt at least 1/2 done before the New Year. I'm sitting here typing this because I've run out of thread and I'm trying to find anything I can do to not leave the house to go to the store. I finished shopping early because I didn't want to fight the crowds but with this post I have exhausted all procrastination attempts and am going to head out the door. Wish me luck!

Congrats to the Family O on the birth of their new son!

Yep, you read that right, CD44!! I'm starting to get worried that we're going to have to sit out the equivalent of 2 months. If CD 1 starts soon then we won't be able to do an IUI because of the holidays and if the next cycle is this long that will bring us into February. Now I'm hoping CD1 doesn't come for a while so we can actually do an IUI the first week in January. I totally blame all of this on the crazy cycle where my temp didn't drop until CD9, nothing has been the same since that one.

Thanks all for your advice on the prescription. I ended up running to Wal-mart last night and got my 100mg prescription for $18!! Which is even cheaper then I was getting my 50mg dose at. The pharmacist was starting to go over the information on the drug until he saw the dosage amount. At which point he paused and said I'm sure with this dosage you're old hat at this by now and don't really need me to run through this with you. *sigh* I don't want to be "old hat" when it comes to fertility drugs.

I'm officially done all my shopping and now all I have to do is get my work finished, house cleaned and suitcase packed for our trip next week!

Quick Question

Has anyone used this site before to get prescriptions? I heard from someone that they got this link from their doctor because their prescriptions weren't covered under insurance. I wanted to see if anyone else had experience with this?

This link goes directly to Clomid

Any opinions/input would be greatly appreciated.

Shake That Bootie

Well it looks like we aren't going to be TTC in December. My Clomid has been increased to 100mg and we are going to be doing monitored cycles. Because I'll have to go in for ultrasounds starting on CD13 it doesn't look like we'll be able to get an insemination in before we leave for Canada on December 20th. Has anyone ever had to increase there dosage of Clomid? Did you notice a huge difference in the intensity of the side effects?

Since we're on a break for a month I have to channel my time and energy elsewhere. So what better place then knitting. My friend (who is pregnant) is having a birthday this week so I decided to knit her an apple hat along with some matching booties.
