Not great news.

Today my appointment was short, but lacking in the sweet. Though somehow I knew going in this wasn't going to be it. My lining had thinned considerably (by about half) and I had a lot of visible follicles, but none even as large as the two were on Monday. She didn't even bother measuring them. She basically said that it appears I'm not responding. There are a few things we're going to do now.

*I am going to continue OPKs, it is possible that I just haven't ovulated yet. If that is the case I will go in as soon as I get a positive.

*When AF does arrive (if on time) I am going to go in on day 2 or 3 so that they can scope me out. Then I will do another round of Femara. This time it will be 7.5mg and I will take it on days 3-7 instead of 5-9.

*If I don't get my period in a couple of weeks (and no BFP) she wants me to come in a do blood work.

We discussed metformin briefly, but she didn't think I needed it since I've been having 'regular cycles' while I'm taking meds (clomid/femara and the progesterone).

I'm sad. I'm disappointed. I'm feeling defeated. I really thought we'd found what I needed. How can I respond one month and not the next? It just isn't fair. It SUCKS. One tiny step forward and then we're back where we started. Just like always, we'll have to wait and see. Waiting. I'm always waiting on something...

Thank you for all of your well wishes. I wish I had better news to report.


  1. I'm so sorry. How frustrating. I hope they get it worked out and find something that works for you soon. *hugs*

  2. Happy ICLW. I am sorry for the ups and downs. I hope that you will find the right meds that will work for you. I am thinking positive thoughts for you.

  3. I'm sorry sweetie. I'm right there with you. I responded great and even got a BFP the first time around, and now it seems to be making my body worse every month. I'm so disgusted sometimes I want to give up. But then where would we be...still waiting and frustrated. Keep on keeping on. There's always more around the corner.

  4. So sorry to hear this news. I'll keep you in my thoughts!

  5. So sorry! That is frustrating!! I just found you through ICLW and added your link. I'm your newest follower too! I wish you all the best for next cycle. (ICLW #75)
