JUNE: Laid off (effective 8/1), "Compassionate Care Program", Clomid, Briova

I'll just go ahead and address the length-y title.

I found out on Monday that I didnt get my job with the American Cancer Society (ACS). ACS has been going through "transformation" for the past year. We knew that this a possibility. I had a feeling I was going to be out of a job.   I am out of a job effective 8/1.  

Kinda Shitty:
 I told my RE my job news yesterday when I went in for my baseline. He gave me papers on compassionate care program.
 We wanted to pursue IUI this cycle, with injectables. He start injectables on CD2. We missed it. I actually insisted on a CD2 Tuesday appt with the scheduler and she couldn't get me in, bitch. 

Expected shitty:
We are doing another round of clomid 100mg. Hopefully triggering, which leads me to my next issue. My health insurance prescription company.  They gave me the run around, bc they are shitty. I found another mail order pharmacy that does Novarel for $88.

Not Shitty:
I had an interview today with Trinity Mother Frances Orthopedic Clinic today as an office assistant. I can only pray I got the job.  This will probably mean and break in TTC with our RE, I'm not happy about that.

Also, not shitty:
I got accepted into the compassionate care program, I get my RX for 50% off.   Oh yea the awesome mail order pharmacy I found does accept the compassionate care program.
Hells yes.

May Cycle: 100mg clomid, trigger and BFN

This cycle was really awesome in the sense I responded well to my medication.

I took 100mg of clomid from CD5-CD9. I triggered (Novarel $250 (yea dude, yea.) from a local pharmacy) on CD14, O'd CD16, tested out my trigger it was completely gone 10DPT.

I had big beautiful follicles.

I had a ultrasound to confirm ovulation, got a shot of pregnyl ($45 @ Re's office)

CD9: Ultrasound

Right Ovary: 18/19mm follicle
Left Ovary: 13mm follicle

Mature follicles are at 20/21mm.

Re think O anyday. He put us on ED instead of EOD.

I go back on 4/29 to see if I O'd, if not I will trigger.

My Unicorn is raring to be let out!!

Back in February I had an AO cycle. A 51 day cycle!!!! It was effing ridiculous. I had to take Provera, which made me dizzy and nauseated, but it got the job done!

Ok so fast-forward to CD1 in March.
I called my RE's office.
"My period is finally here lets do baseline!" - Me

"Oh Dr. SoandSo is on vacation..."- RE office

I'm sitting here thinking well  Dr. SoandSo my ovaries dont fucking take vacation. I ask  " what is the protocol, do I go to my OBGYNS for my baseline?" - Me

"Oh well I dont know about that...." - RE office

Well maybe you should figure it out...."oook well can you figure it out...." - Me

"Sure I will ask." - RE office

Calls back and tells me to go OBGYNS for baseline.


Baseline at OBGYNS

I thought it would be blue.

We went the Urologist on Thursday 2/20/14. "Anatomy looks great...blah blah blah... we could run blood test". I kinda responded with "LETS RUN blood test...scrotum ultrasound, lets do the full panel of test!" I'm so sick and fucking tired of Dr.'s not taking this shit seriously.
At the urologist they took J's blood and brough out the medical tape/gauze stuff to wrap around the cotton ball and at the OBGYN it is pink, so I thought at the urologist it would be blue.

On the bright Mr. got a new job, his new health insurance starts day 1 of active employment  not 90 days in! His insurance also covers IF testing! It also covers our RE!!!!

I start provera today the side effects look to be intense, which should be fun!
