There's always a silver lining!

It's been so long since the last time I posted but I promise I'm going to get better at this ;)

So after many dr appts we have finally began the treatment phase of our ttc journey. After extensive conversations with our RE regarding IVF and IUI we decided to take baby steps and are going to try a couple of rounds of clomid & timed intercourse (so romantic). I have been on clomid for 2 days now and I have to say I'm not really experiencing the symptoms I've read so much about. My husband is nervously waiting for me to become a hormonal, mean, emotional bitch but I'm glad to report that has not happened (yet!) I actually did experience something weird yesterday. I was watching Step Brothers and caught myself being on the verge of tears. There's one scene towards the end where Brennan's brother is having a childhood memory and for some reason that just got to me. I'm going to go ahead and blame that on the Clomid :)

I am supposed to start using OPKs on Saturday and then go in for a sono on Labor Day at 8:30am. Is it sad that I'm secretly hopeful? On the one hand I keep thinking that since we're not really doing anything but taking Clomid we shouldn't expect much but another side of me is saying "Clomid may be just what you needed all along". I am going to give this method 2 or 3 shots but no more than that. If after 3 cycles we have not had any results, we will be moving on to IVF.

Want to hear some great news about our ttc journey (yes, there is a silver lining)? We found out my insurance will cover about 3 IVF cycles!! This is why we don't want to spend too much time with other methods when we have the funds to do IVF. Let's hope we don't need more than the 3.
