EEKKEE

Called the Fertility Center this morning. It's always weird announcing your period.

HI!! This is Heidi Lastname calling. I wanted to scream from the rooftops that today is cycle day 3!!! (Of course it was Jamie who answered the phone, who I don't like, but only because the first time I ever talked to her she was the bearer of bad news...I should probably get over that)

Moral of the story, start the clomid today. Go in for an ultrasound Thursday, April 3, 12 noon.

Eekkee.

I make little rules for myself. Like, the clomid gets taken at 9:30 each morning. It is 9:29 right now. So I took the little white pills out of their blister pack and they are sitting on the desk in front of me, next to my 9am-11am bottle of water. Waiting....waiting....okay. 9:30am.

{pause while my shaky hands deliver the two pills to my mouth. Guzzle water}

Pills have been swallowed. It is official. We are on the TTC train again. No more caffeine. No more late nights partying (ha!! I'm too old for late nights anyhow), no more crack, no more anything that I have ever read about in a study that might be harmful to pregnancy.

Eekkee. No wait. I'll take after one of my "idols" I won't worry about it today. I'll worry about it tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.

Congrats on being back on the Clomid train-- your timing is great-- I'm never that good and have even almost forgotten to take my Clomid in the past!

Good luck Heidi. I'm on CD4. You are very brave to be jumping back in after your loss! I'm hoping for you!

I think we're 2 dpo, so you're not too far behind us. You know, I actually heard someone say EEK on the phone about a year ago. She said it almost dead pan....no pause, no emphasis on the EEK. It made me laugh. Why is that important? It's not, but your post title made me laugh. Good luck! We'll all hold our breath together!

This is awesome for you (except having to lay off the crack pipe-- what a bummer). Good luck! I hope this cycle yields great things for you.

Hey, don't give up the crack! Pregnancy rates amongst crack addicts are sky high - I say that stuff must work magic.

Scream a little louder.

I always like making those calls on my light-rail trips into work, just to see what my fellow commuters will do.

Hoping the best for you and Jenn this cycle! Do your thing, clomid!
