Seven days post ovulation today and BORED! I absolutely detest the two week wait with every fibre of my being.
It’s the knowing… well… we know nothing really. I’m seven days post ovualtion, which means the little egg is either fertilised or a long time dead. No way for me to tell until I get my period or a pregnancy test turns positive.
For the sake of keeping track, I wanted to note down that this month, oddly enough, I didn’t get sore boobs until six days post ovulation. Normally they show up as soon as I ovulate, which I usually take as a sign of a good ovulation. With the addition of clomid this month it kind of implies that I was reading the signs wrong. Also, the only other time I haven’t had sore breasts right from ovulation was the month I got pregnant. When did they show up that month? Six days post ovulation! I’m not taking that to mean anything other than I actually ovulated this month, as obviously the month I got pregnant I do know for sure that I ovulated.
I had progesterone bloods done, so fingers crossed I can wrangle the results of those from the closed claw of my GP in a little while. I will be interested to see what the results are like, given my history of a short luteal phase. I’m also interested to see if the “stronger” ovulation on clomid will cause a longer luteal phase. Of course, what I’m really hoping is that it causes a BFP, but I’ve been in this game long enough now to know that nothing is certain.
I’m worried about what happens if this doesn’t work. The chances are good, seeing as I got pregnant on my own, but I’m still worried. I have one more cycle of clomid 50mg and then my dr wants me to have a two cycle break then up my dose to 100mg. However, in this time I have to move house and therefore drs surgeries. We are moving ONE STREET outside of the catchment area. I did ask the question as to whether we could stay with them, but no bueno… I guess we will have to start all over with a new doctor, which is frustrating.
I just can’t wait for this to happen for us. I want the pregnancy. I would even take throwing up most days, the aches and pains and all of the drama and expense that goes with a baby. I just want our family and waiting with no control is by far the hardest thing in the world!
