Big Fat Failure

IUI #4 will go down in our history as a massive failure. How the heck does it take 12 frigging days to get the trigger out of my system!

I'm in DH's hospital room right now as he's sleeping after his ACL surgery. The anesthesia made him sick so they gave him anti-nausea meds that have made him super-drowsy.

AF arrived in full force while I was waiting for recovery to FINALLY CALL ME AFTER TWO HOURS...jerks. I started freaking b/c he was supposed to be out of recovery and 2 hours later they finally call to tell me they were keeping him longer b/c he was puking.

So cramping is major bad - took four Aleve. Suck it "directions on the bottle". I take four. It better work. I am in so much pain that I want to crawl into bed and sleep through CD1-CD3 b/c of the cramps. But I cant. I got maybe 3 hours of sleep last night. DH's been sleeping for basically the last seven hours and I'm about to pass out.

I called Dr. B's office to let them know I need my clomid refilled for this next cycle (who knows what cycle we're on - it's nearing thirty though) and I officially asked to increase it from 50mg b/c we need as many follicles as we can get for these last two IUIs that are covered under insurance.

I'm waiting for a call back from the nurse who said she'd talk to Dr. B about it. I'll take anything - even injectables! Give me a baby!!!

((hugs)) I'm so sorry. That really sucks. I hope your RE will up your clomid. Having more eggs in the mix can't hurt, right??

I just discovered your blog because I have one of those tracker things on the bottom of mine to see where people link from and I found yours from there. Glad we were able to connect! Anyway, Have you had a RPL testing done? ( Just from looking at your journey thus far I would think about asking your RE about it, if you haven't already done it.

Thanks Lindsay!

I asked about RPL - I was basically shot down b/c the ectopic wasn't really considered a miscarriage to them.
Also, it's not really an RE. We don't have those in my area. My HMO has us go to OB/GYNs who treat infertility. They do the first line of testing through IUIs with injectables, then they refer us to the University of Iowa. We have no coverage for treatment at UI so we're stuck right now.

I would love to hear what you have to say - even if I've just shared good news, bad news or boring ramblings! Your comments mean the world to me!
