I will be completing the first phase of stims today! My last dose of Clomid! It’s day 3 of Follistim. I’m doing pretty well. The side effects really aren’t that bad so far. I hope I don’t jinx myself by saying that 🙂
My advice would be to prepare yourself for the worst side effects, and then you’ll end up being surprised when it’s not actually that bad! (Hopefully!)
*TMI alert* I just had a very large amount of EWCM. I hope I’m not gearing up to ovulate already! It seems too early to be getting fertile CM. It kinda freaked me out. Although, I seem to recall that I get a lot more CM on medicated cycles, and it can last several days before ovulation. Hopefully it’s normal!
Good thing I have a follie check tomorrow! I doubt I’ll be able to sleep tonight. I’m trying to tell myself that even if I don’t have a lot of follies now, it’s okay, it’s still early. I can only expect to get around 6 follies total though (due to my low antral follie count).
I keep visualizing having my follie check and seeing a few more follicles than we thought we would get. I would cry tears of joy right there on the exam table with Mr. Wand in my who-ha. LoL. It’s hard to explain, but knowing that my ovaries are failing me at such a young age is so devastating. Seeing a good amount of follies there would be *almost* as nice as seeing a baby in there. Because at least then, I will have a chance!
