We're on

We're doing IUI this month. I just took my first dose of Clomid. Hooray! Let the migrane begin!

We saw doctor #3 today, henceforth to be known as Dr. Grace. She's a cute and perky, but in a smart way. I ended up liking her a lot.

Not only are we doing IUI this month, but we have a plan. We're doing three months of IUI with Clomid. If that doesn't work we go for three months of IUI with injectables. If that doesn't work we probably get to do IVF.

For this cycle I take Clomid for 5 days starting today, then on the 17th I go in for my first ultrasound to measure the old folicles. Rinse and repeat every couple of days until I get one that's 18mm, then I get told when to do the trigger shot. Then we do inseminations two days running. Then I finally get the progesterone gel I've been wanting for so long.

The only wrinkle was that the pharmacy took forever. When they finally did have my meds it turned out that my company had already switched over the perscription drug coverage, and I didn't have my new card yet. Luckily the Clomid was cheap ($20 for five pills counts as cheap), so I just got that and figured I can pick up the shot and the gel when I go in next week for the ultrasound. I wasn't up for paying the ~$250 for the rest of the stuff out of pocket.
