I haven't updated you all since Christmas about anything fertility related. I took 150 mg clomid for 5 days on cycle days 3-7. I opted not to have mid cycle scans because quit frankly I wanted to take a break from trans-vaginal ultrasounds. I have no idea if I have ovulated or not, I will have a blood test Friday to check my progesterone levels. It should be 7 to 15 if I have ovulated.
If we are not pregnant then I will go back up to the specialists office and talk about what to do next. She may want to continue on the clomid for a few more months but I want to take a more aggressive approach, which might mean more aggressive drugs.
I have been thinking a bit about the "chemical pregnancy" and trying to wrap my brain around what happened. What I found out is that a chemical pregnancy was indeed a conception and is actually a very early miscarriage. A chemical pregnancy would be a miscarriage before the fifth week of gestation. In my mind a miscarriage is a miscarriage and it was still a loss of life. That means that when I fill out medical forms and it asks me how many pregnancies I have had I have to write 3 and only 2 live births. It is still hard to wrap my brain around.
