Back to daily life

Thanks for your comments on my last post. I do realize that Clomid is a commonly prescribed and widely available drug; however, trying to reach someone at my RE's office over a weekend to phone in a prescription in another state would've been challenging at best. I would've had to wait (perhaps hours) for a call back and find a pharmacy near our hotel. Doing all this would have definitely forced thoughts of TTC upon me during what was intended to be a relaxing getaway weekend. I wanted to be able to enjoy myself without having to keep my mobile phone at the ready to deal with something I was trying hard not to think about while I was away.

I called the RE's office this morning to confirm that today (CD 6) would be too late to start the Clomid, and the nurse confirmed that our RE doesn't ever start it after CD 5. So this will end up being an unmedicated cycle for us. As upset as I was on Friday night about "wasting" a month, I have now come to terms with it. It's not the end of the world.

I did mention to MM on Friday night (after I was less upset) that it would be very ironic if I ended up getting pregnant this cycle. Such is our mutual attitude about TTC at this point that his response was "yeah, right." Neither of us believes for a moment that that will happen.

Anyway. . . . I did have a very fun and relaxing weekend. Kudos to MM for planning it all!

I am going to focus more on my general health this cycle rather than on TTC: going to the gym at least 3-4 days each week and eating more healthy whole foods and less processed crap. I could really stand to lose some weight, too. Though I have no reason to believe that my weight is hindering our TTC efforts, it would be a good thing to start a pregnancy at a healthier weight than I am currently.

I know that I won't be able to totally forget about TTC this cycle--even MM knows roughly when I ovulate each month--but I am going to take advantage of this unplanned break to put the focus on other things.

P.S. MM went back to the pharmacy this morning and picked up the Clomid. No explanation (or apology) was offered for why it wasn't given to him on Friday. At least I am now set for next cycle when it arrives.


  1. Sometimes, a break, even unplanned and upsetting, is really good for your mind and body. Here's to hoping the next 4 weeks speed by!

  2. well, I am glad that you had a relaxing weekend, and even though I never believe in the "break cycle" for me, it does happen, perhaps it will happen for you.

  3. it would be so ironic and WONDERFUL if you did get pg this cycle! here's to hoping!
