The nurse from my doctor's office called this morning, and she gave me good news! I expected her to say that my estrogen levels look okay, but I would need to come in for another ultrasound to see if the Clomid did its work. Instead! She told me that estrogen levels look good (I think that's the word she used. Well, that's the word I'm going to use), and I can start using Ovulation Prediction Kits (OPK) on Monday. WHOA! Who knew that I would be so darn excited to pee on a stick?! Then, they'll have me come back in Tuesday to check out what's been happening.
I may not conceive this month, but it's such a great, GREAT feeling that Clomid is working, and good changes are happening with my body.
Also, I have one more thing to add to my list of things during TTC that simulate actual pregnancy/motherhood:
Getting up ridiculously early in the morning?....Check.
My last two appointments at my RE's (Reproductive Endocronologist's) office have been at 7:30. Those worked out well because I had all my tests done a couple hours before I had to be at work (thankfully, I'm teaching in the afternoons for both the Winter and Spring semesters). What time is my appointment this Tuesday? 6:30am.
Ummmm....yeah...I don't think I've had to be anywhere that early since I took Algebra at 6:30 in my AM Flex class. (Yes, I took a math class at 6 in the morning, and I got an A in it, too!) I suppose my schedule is going to change slightly when I have a baby, so I might as well get used to it before conception.
Suffice to say, between a great class with a great group of students, good news from the doctor's office, and good news for the Husband at his work, today was a good day!
