Missing the Egg

Where does the time go?  Let's play catch up and find out!

We're officially done with Clomid! At our mid-cycle u/s for 150mg, the biggest follicle I had was a 10mm.  No beuno!  At that time due to my poo quality lining, my RE instructed me to go ahead and start on Femara/Letrozole that day and to see what would happen.  I came back a week later (approx. CD11) and to my extreme surprise, we had one big and beautiful 17mm follie! I almost cried right then and there.  It was beyond words to finally have made some sort of response to an ovulation drug.  Two weeks and a positive opk later, I got further confirmation of ovulation with my progesterone being a glorious 18.79.  However, it seems that first egg was too illusive, as BFN after BFN came, and now today I feel the semi-familiar knocking of mother nature on my uterine doorstep.  I guess this will mean a call to the RE's office tomorrow to see what the end of the year will bring.  I'm guessing another round of Femara since I did so well with it this time.  Time will tell. :)

Other than that, not too much has been going on.  J and I had our faux wedding a few weeks ago to commenerate our anniversary, as well as bring our marriage out of the closet for the families.  It's such a big relief to not have to watch what I say anymore, remember to take my rings off during visits, and hide my drivers license when I'm ordering margaritas.  I'll post one of the pictures when I get home today!

We're also mid-moving to a new place.  We're upgrading from our one bedroom matchbox to a three bedroom townhouse.  I'm so beyond excited for all of this space, I don't even know what to do with myself.  Ahh, <3

I guess I should get back to work now...maybe.


  1. I'm so sorry you didn't catch the egg, but it sounds like you responded really well to the femara. Hopefully the RE will get you started on it again this cycle and you catch that egg-just keep bd'ing like crazy! Have you thought about adding IUI to up your chances?

    I'm glad you were able to reveal your marriage more openly, I'm sorry you had to keep it a secret for so long. I can't imagine dealing with that on top of infertility, that deffinetly takes a strong woman=) Wishing you all the best and sending you lots of sticky babydust!

  2. Hope things are going well=) Just wanted to let you know I nominated you for a blog award over at my blog.

  3. Awww, thanks love!! I will check it out. :) And to the other comment I never saw before now (lol, thanks Blogger!) all the doctors I've talked to about it at the RE clinic tell me there's no point in us doing IUI since J's sperm count is high enough. I'm doing two more cycle of Femara, and if we're still not preggo I have no idea what the next step is. :(
