I had sort of a weird conversation with the nurse. She was like "I'm going to give you 10 pills", and I was like "How much in each pill?", and she was like "Huh?", and I was like "How many milligrams each?", and she was like "50mg", and I was like "100mg/day? Can I do 50 mg/day?"...
And in the long run, that's what I'm going to do. The doc wasn't around. And she was like - in the end, he'd say to do whatever you are comfortable with. It seems a bit loosey-goosey to me - but it's sort of a crap-shot after all. Dr Nora recommended 25mg/day. Dr Google seems to say side effects and risks are much higher at 150 mg/day. So I think I'm cool with 50 mg/day. I think it makes sense to start small. Because who knows how my body will respond? I don't have problems ovulating, this is just to make some bonus eggs.
But I haven't told you blog ladies - but I've been secretly obsessing about triplets. But with only 50 mg/day and still <1% chance, it is unlikely. But it SUCH a fun day dream to have. About all the triplet problems you would have - fun. :) For a while I would day dream of having quads, but as this is even less realistic, I ratcheted down to triplets. Think of all the fun you could have naming!
I will be taking one 50mg tablet of Clomid per day for 5 days. I go in again on CD7. That seems like a long way away!
Does anyone know if I should stop taking FertileCM? I will go ask Dr Google.
Although I intended to keep myself at cautiously optimistic, I accidentally am now just excited. I know this comes with a very heartbreaking AF visit, but I think there is no way around the heartbreak this cycle if I don't catch.
By the numbers:
And one other thing. I thought it was going to be like $500. No! It was $34.50. Nice.
