Here we go again...

Saw Dr. Lee for the fun "period" appointment. My polycystic ovaries are playing their game with multiple follicles all over the place, the biggest at 5mm, left side. I got weighed (always fun) and then had blood drawn before the ultrasound. Since things seem to be back to their regular, I-dont-work-the-way-I'm-supposed-to selves, Dr. Lee would like me to do 225 of the Gonal-F tonight, Sunday, and Tuesday. Back on Thursday for another ultrasound. In the past, it has taken me between 7 and 9 injections to ovulate, so that would put us around the 11th-13th of March. Which means another month of this game. But, this time, I've decided to chart my BBT (temperature) in the mornings. This morning: 96.6. I realize that I should have started on day 1 instead of day 3, but I didn't get the brilliant idea until last night. Maybe this will at least show me something during the 2ww when I am finding a symptom in everything.

I'm so tired. I didn't sleep last night and I'm so crampy. The one thing about PCOS that really is a blessing and a curse- I'm not used to menstruating. And this cramping- my sympathies to all of you ladies who deal with this regularly. It sucks. On top of coming off a stomach bug and the whole BFN and the work stress. Just not doing well today. Need to sleep.

Sleep will give you a little perspective, but it all stil sucks. So sorry for all of this. Cramping right along with you...

I hope you find some peace this weekend. Perhaps menstruating will help you detoxify and get a fresh start. I know I always feel that way. Drink a lot of water, get a lot of rest, and pray. I'll be praying for you as well.
Thank you so much for sending the card. I'll be watching for it. And, thank you for always supporting me. You are a wonderful person, Michele.

Hi Michelle,

Sorry it's been a few days since I've commented. I just caught up and wanted to give you some hugs and support. I am hoping this cycle goes smoothly for you, that you have no side effects and that you end up with a BFP.
