I feel like I am a butterfly. I had to undergo different cycles until i finally turn into one :p
What a funny analogy for my trying to conceive stage... I can wait longer but I just want to be assured that I will be a butterfly someday and not just a caterpillar :)
As I have written before, I am undergoing my first cycle TTC. I started when I finally agreed to take Clomid for 5 consecutive days at 8 am on my 2nd to 6th day of mens. I don't know if it is considered the side effect of Clomid but I had many and some big pimples on my face. Aside from that, I didn't experience or felt anything else.
On my 11th day, I went for my first follicle monitoring. It showed that I only had 1 big follicle, and 7 smaller ones.
On my 13th day, I went back for my 2nd monitoring and this time, my one big follicle was bigger and was ready to be "burst". I had pregnyl injection to help with my cycle. We had scheduled to have contact after 24 hours ;) then I have to report back to my OB on my 19th day after my 3rd monitoring.
The feedback for my 3rd monitoring, I already ovulated daw. 'You ovulated. Yes, you really did ovulate' (yan sabi ng OB na nagmonitor, natawa pa si doc nung ginaya ko yung pagkakasabi nya ;)
So now, I am again on my waiting period. I have until August 10 to confirm if the cycle succeeded... hay!!!
I didn't spend that much for this cycle. Unlike other TTCers, I didn't spend 25K for one cycle. It was more or less around 5K only. Thank you for Maxicare... it handled the consultation fees :)
