TTC After a Loss

I'm Baaa-aaack (kind of)

Hello all of you beautiful ladies!! I'm sorry I haven't been on here in a couple of days, but by the time I would get home from the hospital, I was just too pooped to do anything.

So, DH is back home! They finally discharged him yesterday evening. I am so happy that he is back. He had a staph infection which was causing most of his problems. He is in the middle of a pretty significant flare, but he is now symptom free of that. He has an appointment tomorrow with his GI and we will go from there. He is on about four different antibiotics right now to kick the staph completely out.

My OB called yesterday and wants me to stay on the 50mg of clomid and see if my levels go up. If not, then my third cycle if I'm not pregnant, she will stay at the 50 and add a progesterone supplement as well. She really doesn't want to up my dosage of clomid to 100 since my ovaries responded so well to the 50... she just wants to see my progesterone up above a 20. DH and I will be TTA next cycle if I get a BFN this cycle (testing on Sunday!) and OB said that she is okay with me taking a break on the clomid next month as well. I just don't see the point in putting my ovaries through that if we are TTA.

So, with that, I will probably be taking  a temporary bump break. I will still be lurking... but I just need to really hit my diet and exercise hard and make sure DH is 100% healthy for when we start TTC again. 

I just want to thank all of you for all of your T&Ps during this time. It's been stressful, but we pulled through and it would not have been nearly as easy without all the support we had from so many people. Thank you so much!!!
