Hey Ladies! I get so much inspiration and support from you ladies even from the sidelines. I am going to start Clomid this cycle and am going to have a sit down with my OB tomorrow and just want to make sure that I am prepared and have the right questions to ask.
A little history on me. I am 31 and have only had on pregnancy in the almost two years that my husband and I have been trying. I had a pretty normal pregnancy until almost 16 weeks when I went in for a routine visit and found that my baby had no heartbeat.
I had an extensive myomectomy one year prior to my pregnancy to remove large uterine fibroids and during all the prep work for my surgery, an MRI revealed that I had a Bicornuate Uterus. I was told that this uterine anomoly was the best of all the anomolies to have because pregnancy outcomes are good. Once I had my miscarriage, I went for further testing and found out that actually had a septate uterus instead of a bicornuate uterus and had a hysteroscopy to remove my septum in December of 2011. Folowing my surgery I had an HSG to determine whether the surgery was successful and thank goodness it was. No more septum and MH and I were given the green light to TTC in February.
At my annual GYN visit a couple of weeks ago, my OB asked how things were going and I told him that my cycles prior to my surgery and after have been very irregular and I have been temping and using OPK's and have never had a temp shift or positve OPK. I had CD21 blood work to see if I had infact ovulated and my progesterone came back negative.
He said he would like to give me Provera to jump start my cycle and start me on Clomid to see if he can get a "better ovulation". I am aware that I should be closely monitered while taking Clomid and he is all for it but I just want to make sure that I have all my ducks in row....if you know what I mean.
I know that I need monitering U/S to check for cysts, uterine lining, and hyperstimulation. When did you have your first U/S and did you get more than one? I know that I should continue to temp and do my OPK's as well.
I am sorry this post got so long but I would appreciate any advice or information you can give me. I really appreciate it!!
