Not so confident today

Last night was our DI support group and our doctor made a visit. Everyone in our group uses the same doctor, so this was our chance to barrage her with questions. She basically says that follicle size is the most important indication of ovulation, and my follicles were small, so I don't think I'm pregnant. Plus I would expect to feel queasy and tired by now and I don't. I think next month we may consider Clomid because she said that's the way to help women who's follicles don't develop like they should. We could wait and monitor one more month, but clomid only adds about $500 to youf costs per month, and considering we're already paying about $1500, why waste another month if my body doesn't work right. So anyway, now I'm just in the mode of waiting for my period so we can start over.

What did she mean by this? I don't know how that would indicate that you aren't pregnant.

Don't give up hope until the flo starts!

You know, we've found that she often contradicts herself. And I wouldn't take the lack of a specific symptoms too seriously. Everyone's body reacts differently to pregnancy. It's too early to be out of the game. it's still possible.

wait - why would clomid add $500 per month??? i am only paying $20 at target for my perscription, and you don't have to add THAT MANY more ultrasounds/monitoring ... not $500 worth, i wouldn't think.

big hugs to you.

I wonder the same thing as Lizzie -I pay $9 for generic Clomid at mal*wart. So they must be doing lots (or expensive) monitoring with the clomid. I did not have u/s monitroing with clomid. I pelvic exams to check for cysts every cycle, but other than that it was up to the OPKs to tell me when I was Oing. So clomid didn't cost me much.
But I think that you don't have to worry about it anyway....cause you are still in ths cycle. :)
