As I mentioned before, today was the day of our ultrasound to see if all those injections I did last week paid off. Husband picked me up from work this morning so that we could rush over to our appointment- only to find out they were running very behind at my fertility office. Here is the before picture (while we were waiting for the assistant to come in 40 minutes past our appointment time!)This is my nervous look......
Now for the news: we did not have any change with the Clomid and Injections :( My follicles (on my ovaries) were not measuring anywhere near large enough to indicate that any eggs were ready. Which means this month was a big, fat bust! So what happens next? We move forward with DAILY injectionables now- not something I am looking forward to! Husband and I are going in for a consultation once again on Friday to get a new game plan together to increase my dosage and start "dailies"- and this time we are going to completely rule out Clomid- since apparently Clomid is like candy to me and does absolutely nothing!
This news was hard for me- I mean really hard. With each month that passes and we receive the bad news, I worry more and more that maybe this will not happen for us. Luckily, I work with the most amazing people ever! I had to return to work after the appointment- which turned out to actually be a good thing because it distracted me- and I was given nothing but unconditional support from all of my co workers. I also know that I have the most wonderful family and friends (blogger friends, too!) and cannot express to everyone how much your support really does help! Of course, I will continue to update you all as I learn more about what our next step will be- but in the meantime I will be starting a birth control pack (weird, I know) to try to "restart" my hormones.
**Brutally Honest Moment Here- The song "Fix You" by Coldplay has been my go-to song today and it definitely helped to come home, turn it up and cry a little by myself before Husband came home. It was so nice to get some of the emotions out that had been bottled up inside all day.
Ok, enough sad stuff.........on to the fun part of my post- TOP 2 TUESDAY!
Todays topic over at The Undomestic Momma is Top 2 things you would like to purchase- what the perfect topic to put me in a better mood!
1) This purse by my new love- Henri Bendel
I am actually very excited because I think this dream purchase will become a reality sometime this week! With everything that has been going on (especially after today) Husband has given in to me splurging for a new purse! Last year I bought a beautiful Kate Spade bag- now, this year I am obsessed with this one! Hopefully I will have real-life pictures of it to share soon!
2) This beautiful car........
Husband and I have been debating back and forth on one for a couple months now. Due to his new job (we still dont know exactly what he will be making) and the constant $ required for treatments we have had to hold off for a little, but hopefully this one will become a reality before the end of the year too!
One last thing, I have not had time to sit down and read everyones blogs since Friday! I feel horrible about it and am dying to know what is going on in all of your lives! I 100% plan to catch up on Wednesday and will probably spend hours reading what everyone has been up to- but in the meantime, Im very sorry!
