Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

And we are a go!


I feel like I am in a wind storm. Everything is going so fast. I am totally happy but somewhat freaked out by the prospect of the possibility that this month could have a different outcome than the last 2 years of trying. 

I got to the office bright and early and they were pretty busy but you could tell that they have been doing this for a long time. It was super efficient! I had my ultrasound first and I had an amazing tech. She explained every little thing that was up on the screen. I have a perfectly formed uterus and the interior line looks right too. I do have a 1inch cyst on my right ovary. She said she wasnt sure if it was active or not so I am not really sure what that means. She said that the little black dots were follicles but couldn’t count as its too early to determine which ones would/could grow for this cycle but she said things look good. So I am happy about that.

After that, I was essentially interrogated about did I REALLY want the genetics testing. After signing two additional consent forms I asked what the big deal was about the test and the nurse couldn’t really give me an answer, just that they needed additional information for that test but whatever. Down to the lab I went, 7 vials of blood later and then I went to wait for the pharmacy to open. That is one of the awesome things about this RE being in a hospital… everything is right there  I was the first in line and they had my Ovidrel shot ready so I just paid and left!

At 3 this afternoon I got the call from the nurses that my FSH and Estradiol numbers were normal (4 and 36 respectively) and that my prescription for Clomid is in and I can start tonight!! I am to return on October 1st for the followup ultrasound. 

It probably seems silly to be so excited about the prospect of a different outcome but I am allowing myself to embrace it and take the bits of nerves, worry and freaking out with it. I passed the first hurdle today! I am going to put that in the win column and just take every step/appointment at a time and not think too far ahead 🙂

  1. Yay! It’s always exciting to start a new cycle and with this being your first IVF I’m sure it’s super exciting. I’m not sure I can remember that far back😉. As for the cyst if it was active it would be producing hormones, that’s what she meant I think. GOOD LUCK!

  2. I’m just so excited friend! Yay! All of these steps bring you closer to baby!
