CD7 update & nurse appointment

Hey all, I'm on cd7 now and I have had a regular period so far. I saw the nurse on Wednesday (cd3) and had a transvaginal done. I also had some fertility hormone bloddtests as well as HIV,hep b, etc.
The transvaginal took about 20seconds and then she just told me start taking clomid that evening for 5 days and to come back for another scan on cd11. I was sooo happy and immediately started thinking about the possibility of it working on the first go and me being pregnant by the end of the month. That would be amazing.

I then asked her when my next appointment would be after the cd11 one, and she said it depended on how my body reacted but I would need to come for monitoring quite often as I have not taken it before. I then reminded her that I was travelling for 10 days and if I that would affect anything. She then told me that I could not start unill I begin my next period then, I told her that it could take up to 3 months to come again. So she said I should wait for 4 weeks and if period has not started then they would give me pills to bleed and then subsequently start the clomid.

I was so pissed you couldn't imagine, I was just so excited to start and then she killed my
excitement. I was thinking that they could scan me the day before I leave then I could start clomid while I'm away and then come back when my scan is due, but she wasn't happy with that. I guess I can't blame her for doing her job, she said it's only a month but that feels like year to me.

So I just have to be patient. I am not going to temp anymore as it just makes me too involved and I start worrying over every little thing. Just going to wait out the 4 weeks and prepare my body to eventually start clomid.

That's it for now, hope you guys are all ok.

Let me know what's going on with you.

God Bless


  1. I can only imagine how hard that news was to hear. For women/people who don't know what it's like to struggle to get pregnant, a month doesn't seem like a big deal to them. But it certainly is. So, I have some advice to you. TRY TRY TRY to be CAREFREE this last cycle. Look at it as your LAST month NOT pregnant. Have some wine, make love when you feel like it, enjoy your vacation etc. Treat it like the last time you will be able to do WHATEVER you want. It will make the time go by faster and help you stay positive. AND, you never know, when women tend to "let it go" that's often when they get pregnant.

    Good luck. Thanks for posting your blog. See you on bnb :)

  2. Great advice and I am going to do just that, I'm not going to evev think about ttc this month and that's why I have stopped temping
