No eggies.

I'm at work and been slacking way too long, so I'll make this short. Went to the doctor yesterday and:

-Dan's sperm is fine.
-My bloodwork indicates that I'm not ovulating.
-Going to start my 1st round of Clomid this cycle.
-Going back to see him on Day 28 of my cycle to see how I responded to the treatment.

So, that's about it in a nutshell. I'm pretty excited to get started actually, 'cause it might actually work...maybe not though, from what I've read it's only a 30-50% success rate, so still pretty low, but it's better than nothing I suppose.

I'm also annoyed/worried right now because I'm 6 days late (no, not pg, took a test on Wednesday before going to the doc's), so I'm really hoping that my periods aren't going to disappear again like they did in 2007. It would just be appropriate for that to happen though, just to spite me. Now that I actually need my period to start this treatment, it decides to not show up, so that I'll have to go back to my family doc to try and kickstart that again, wasting another 3 months...ok, I'm going to stop, trying to think positively.

So that's the situation now. Am I happy about it? Not overly, but like I said, I'm hopeful. I can't wait to get started basically. Get this show on the road.

I'll update once I start the Clomid to report any side effects or interesting-ness....or if I become forced to move 2 steps back and try to regulate my cycles again (seriously, I was regular for 9 months before this!!)

I'm out.

ETA: So funny when things happen like that. Pretty much immediately after I wrote this I started spotting and I'm now on Day 1 of my cycle. So that's great news, one less thing to worry about. It was just a long cycle (47 days!) So as it looks now I'll be visiting the doc at the end of the month to see how things go, wish me luck!!
