And no positive OPK yet. Not a one.. not even close. I am guessing 50mg of clomid did nothing to my ovaries. I will go in on CD 21 to confirm whether or not I ovulated, and then they will increase my dosage of clomid from there. They knew I did the previous dosage at 100mg, so I wonder why they started me at a lower dosage since that one obviously did not work.
I really am not frustrated because I know that this new doctor has a plan, and its alot less drama filled that the RE I was seeing before. She kind of gives you the tools, and then you are on your own. You only go in once a month so there is really no stress in that for me. Smooth Sailin'.
My dream and ultimate goal is to tell my family one Thanksgiving dinner that we are pregnant.. Looks like I only have one more month to make that happen for this year. I have always just pictured that in my head, and think it would be sooo neat since everyone would be there together, and we all say what we are thankful for. Boy, wouldn't that be something to be thankful for???
My body is used to the Metformin now.. I am up to 1500 per day and still getting sick to my stomach but not near as bad. I have been super tired lately, but that is nothing new. I need energy.. STAT.
Besides all that fun, I am loving that Fall TV is back. I missed Glee and am soooo excited it's back on. If you haven't seen it, you are truly missing out.

Blackberry Margaritas

So I haven't tried these personally, just found the recipe on another blog. YUM. Not that I need help feeling like I have been drinking these days, but I will be trying this soon, because I am a big Blackberry kinda girl.

Blackberry Margaritas
Serves 2

1 shot triple sec
3 shots tequila
1/2 shot black current liquor
1/2 cup blackberries
1 6-ounce can limeade
1 cup crushed ice
Combine the all ingredients in a large pitcher. Using a big wooden spoon, muddle the blackberries so they are pretty much all crushed up in the drink. Serve with additional blackberries and a lime wedge.

Happy Labor Day!! Today was my day I swore I would sleep in because I have been up at the crack of dawn the past two days but it was no bueno again this morning.. I will back up and give you the run-down on how the past 4 days of this has gone, and today so far also. I realize this is all TMI, but I will not even go into the detail that I should and when I say bathroom you just think about the worst time you went to the bathroom with the most terrible stomach flu. That is what this feels like..
Thursday night- start one pill with dinner... "This isn't bad at all! Why did they tell me to hang around a toilet??"
Friday morning- slightly nauseous, but maybe from the pre-natal vitamin?
Friday lunch- Stomach starts gurgling 3 minutes into my chicken enchiladas. Got back from lunch and had to run across the parking lot, full force to the bathroom that is not in the main building so I am away from co-workers. Thinking I wasn't going to make it, and so thankful the bathroom was in a vacant office and it was a one-seater.
Friday night- Bathroom, Bathroom, Bathroom and one more pill at dinner terrified because of my white shorts I was going to wear to the UT game.. Should I take it or not? I will go ahead and take it.
Saturday morning- "Why is this room spinning and when did I drink vodka and how do I not remember it?" It took my well over an hour to get out of bed because I was afraid I would vomit. It was tiny slow movements at a time, but I had to let my dogs out in the backyard to potty. My schnauzer was standing by the front door, so I went ahead and let him out front because he is normally pretty good about staying by me and in our yard. Lesson learned. He sees a cat across the street and chases it all the way down the street and around the corner. I am running after him screaming, and I don't know what was louder.. my yellin' voice, or my stomach gurgling, but I am sure both woke up the neighborhood. I finally got him, and had to carry him back to the house, and I am cold-sweating by this point.
Gametime- I could barely eat my food, I wasn't too hungry, but as soon as I got home, bathroom, bathroom, bathroom, and Matt and I went to dinner, and came home and bathroom.
Sunday- went to church and went to eat after church.. bathroom, you get the idea, it's anytime I eat at this point.
Made it to Beaumont, went to the movies with my ladies, and made it home and was in pain by the time I got home last night around midnight because my tummy hurt so bad. I felt like the side effects lessened alot this day so I went ahead and started 2 pills a day last night. I have to work my way up to 3 by the end of the week so thank goodness it's a long weekend.
Today, I was a little nauseous when I woke up, but nothing like Saturday. I have had to take two bathroom breaks during the time it took to write this blog, but hey.. at least we know it's working... right ?

Follow-up on Bloodwork

I met with Dr. B on Thursday, and she must have known I was worried (Dr. B, do you read my blog? (: )because she started it off by saying that she only wanted me to come in so that we could talk face to face rather than over the phone, because some of my levels were a little high.
She said that I absolutely have PCOS- so thank goodness I don't need to change the title of my blog. LOL! My testosterone was a little high for a female.. I think she said average was 1.something for a female and mine was 2.0. Not too high, but definetely above normal.
My glucose and cholestrol came back perfect, and let me tell you how suprised I was to hear that on the cholestrol. I do no have the healthiest eating habits but all 5 of the different levels were right in the middle of range. Good news!
My prolactin level was high- as if I am breastfeeding, LOL.. She said it could be from my nipples being overstimulated.. WHAT! I started laughing hysterically after my face twisted with question.. BOOB man right here folks.. LOL!

Anyway, she said she might check this level again when (if) I get pregnant and before then I cannot have any nipple stiumlation for like 72 hours. We're gonna have to lock him up.

So all across the board, the news wasn't so bad after all. I am on CD 25 right now, and I will start clomid on CD5 whenever I start my period. I am starting to get the rhythm down on this whole period thing, and I am waiting for it anyday now. It's like I am 13 again, only trying to get pregnant. I started Metformin on Thursday night and the side effects are gruesome. Metformin gets its own blog- stay tuned..

A Dream for the Future (Day 30- finally)

I think this one goes hand in hand, or word for word with Day 29.. to have a baby, and for my friends who are trying so hard to also have a baby! We are ready!
