The next step in TTC

I took a big step yesterday! I called my dr.s office and even though I had to talk to the nurse (he'd already left for the day and will be out till Monday) I put in a request for his position on going ahead and putting me on clomid this next cycle. I asked about ultrasounds during use and she said they rarely did them, so monitoring at their office wasn’t really necessary. I said I'd like to start on the lowest dosage if possible since my cycles have been so screwed up, low progesterone and all that. the nurse seemed fine with it, but of course I'll have to see what Dr. Phillips says on Monday. So this is a HUGE step for me. we'll see if he actually goes for it. if so, well, wow! I may actually have a chance next cycle... ? !I've never had to use meds before. I mean I rarely use Tylenol and stuff for headaches, so this will be a huge thing if he agrees. *biting nails*If he does agree, it'll just be the praying that dh is in town when he's needed!! LOL!
I'm just waiting for this cycle to be over. I started getting cramps yesterday, so I'm sure my O date is off, though I don’t know how far. :P

And now for an update today:

He agreed!!! I got the call this morning and the script is in and I can pick it up anytime. Woohoo! I’ll take it cycle days 5-9 and he’s starting out with the 50 mg dose. I’m so excited about this. I feel I may actually have a chance this next time. My cycles have gotten so whacked out for some reason. Wish me luck this next cycle!

Woo!!! Clomid!!! Gina, I hope it works for you on the first try, and that any side effects are minimal.

I hope so too. I've already warned DH about the 'irritability' issue. LOL! he was just worried about me popping out 6 babies. LOL!!
