Well, the clomid round has begun. I have my monitoring appointment for next Thursday. It seems like so far away right now, but hopefully my marathon training and work will help the time pass quickly. My RE also gave me the green light for the marathon training, as long as I don't overdo it and go easy on the day I ovulate. That sounds like a good plan for me and I'm already planning on taking a day off work.
I also had lunch with my good friend who has gone through IF herself and still going through trying to figure out what to do now. I didn't mention to her today, but I should actually thank her for helping me stay on track with my meds. Last night I was all snug in bed ready to fall asleep, all thoughts of clomid far from my mind for once. And then I started thinking of what I had going on today and remembered our lunch plans. I immediately shot up and took my meds. That was a close call!
We got to talking about IVF, embryos, and adoption, and my friend brought up the idea of embryo adoption. This was not something I had ever thought of before, but now I can't stop thinking about it.
I also looked into the fertility program at our center for integrative health here. Their next workshop is not until February, so I figure I'll sign up now and cancel if this cycle works. I also noticed that they offer accupuncture there, which I've been thinking of trying. Anybody have experience with that they could share?
