angel- go see your gp about your cholesteral. A really good friend of mine, from Indonesia, has really high cholesterol. She is very thin, and eats neither much meat nor fired foods. Her doctor said it is often times hereditary. Both of my parents have high cholesterol, and neither are heavy. In fact, they both take very good care of themselves. They were told about its genetic link, and have both reduced their numbers with some meds.
I am sorry you are feeling so stir crazy inside the house ;/ I have been getting like that too, but have been trying to keep busy to deter the negative thoughts. I only have today and tomorrow left on the clomid. The other day I said how I am surprised I am over not feeling as many side effects for such a high dosage. I take that back. I have been more depressed the last three days over everything... I am reading a book about a German family during the WWII/Holocaust period in the world history, and I am having like haunting images from it that make me cry all day long. I can't even hold my son without thinking about the awful things I am reading about. Normally such things bother me, but not in such a way that it pervades my day. The tears... awful, over everything. Yesterday- the way I perceived a neighbor treated me made me cry! Needless to say, I am putting the book down for a few days until this clomid dosage is over, and I am taking deep breaths every time I want to scream at my husband or cry over someone else.
Bostonmommy- I am trying to keep that perspective you mentioned: going for it hands down :) I am excited hear about your great follicle news! Any idea/prediction about when you expect your ovulation date? I have my u/s and blood tests next Thursday, which will determine my next IUI. My guess will be Saturday or Sunday of next weekend.
LilMissP- I too am 31, my husband is 37. We have one son who we conceived first try, and then a I conceived first try last summer and miscarried. Since then, my period became so irregular that I had to go see the fertility doctor, per my ObGyn's rec. Fer. specialist thinks for some reason my once regular cycle has been totally wacked since my mc last summer. I am now on my 5th and final round of clomid, and have had three IUIs, with another one scheduled for most likely next weekend. Obviously, I have not had luck with my routines yet; however, most women I have read about have had their success after several tries with the combo. I hope your respond your first try- and I know two women with beautiful babies from their first IUIs! As for me, I am hoping this 5th time is a charm, or then onto injectables.
