Let's Get This Show on the Road

We are finally able to make some progress with the fertility treatments. I started a new cycle yesterday and immediately called the RE.

I am starting out by taking Estradiol today and tomorrow. According to the nurse, this will help prolong my cycle hormonally. I'm assuming that this is due to the days that my cycle is falling on. I start Clomid on Saturday. The doctor has decided to start me out at 100mg. I was actually a little shocked when I found out that I would not be starting at the normal 50mg like most people. The nurse said that the doctor wants to start me at the higher dosage because of the endo and because I've never been pregnant before. I will take Clomid for 5 days. I have an ultrasound scheduled for Monday, November 22. If everything looks ok, and I'm praying that it does, the office will do a trigger shot so that I will ovulate. My IUI is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, November 23.

I am so anxious. I am praying so hard that this is it, that this is the cycle that I get pregnant.
