I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Testing, 1-2-3

So, Friday is test date. Which, according to my chart, seems a wee bit early. But, the RE wants me to test on Friday, and again on Sun whether it's positive or negative. I've never been as anxious to test as I am this time. I guess maybe it's the added possibility with the Femara+HCG we used this month. Not getting my hopes up too much, but, I can't help but be a little hopeful and excited!

I've been a little crampy this week, with a few breakthrough pains from my ovaries. Other than that, things have been pretty good, I'm glad to report. Reflux...I guess I've just gotten used to that as a symptom. I've been working on my "diet" in regards to my reflux, and, I've been trying to eat slower-I think it's been helping!!!

We are going out of town this weekend. I'm taking my mom to a concert back home, and, we are going to visit with friends. It should be a good time! I'm glad we have plans...it'll help to keep my mind busy!

I can't wait! If Femara works for you, I will definately consider doing the same if round 3 of Clomid fails. My doc gave me a choice for my next step - Femara or Injectables.

Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to blog before you go. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I just found your blog! I'm so excited for you, I hope it works. Just to tell you, I had sharp ovarian pains and cramps (different from my period cramps) before my BFP. Good luck!
