KP 5 / Cycle Day 5… again!


Nyt sitten on menossa kp 5 ja Clomit aloitettiin taas tuossa pari päivää sitten (kp 3)… Tosiaan “täti tuli kylään” maanantaina (tai ma-su yönä), ja pettymys oli tietysti suuri.

Yhdeltä kätilötutulta kyselimme erilaisten vuotojen (veri) mahdollisuudesta raskauden aikana, ja selvisi että se “urbaanilegenda” menkoista raskauden aikana elää vahvana, mutta siis varsinaisia kuukautisiahan ei voi olla jos munasolu on kiinnittynyt. Muita vuotoja kyllä voi olla, runsaastikin (joillain jopa tasaisesti raskauden loppuun astikin…), joita jotkut erehtyvät tulkitsemaan kuukautisiksi.

Tämä saattaa myös selittää sen miksi jotkut eivät “tajua” olevansa raskaana ennen kun ensimmäiset raskausoireet ilmaantuvat (pahoinvointi tai jopa jo se että vauva liikehtii kohdussa…).

Tämän takia teimmekin, menkoista huolimatta, kp 3 aamuna raskaustestin (nega), ihan vain varmistuaksemme, että Clomifen-kuuri on turvallista taas aloittaa (koska alkiolle/sikiölle ko. kuuri olisi erittäin haitallinen eli halusimme sulkea pois raskauden mahdollisuuden vaikka vuotoa tulikin….)

Nyt sitten vaan seuraavaa ovista odotellessa (arvio 2.-6.11)… Se olis sitten “jo” (tai vasta, miten sen haluaa ajatella…) seitsemäs yrityskerta…

Tikutamme kyllä edelleen ovista, mutta olemme ajatelleet käyttää jo hyvissä ajoin ennen (ja vaikka vähän jälkeenkin) “satseja”, koska tosiaan Clomien kanssa ei ainakaan saatu yhtään kunnon tummaa viivaa o istikkuun, monena päivänä oli vain haaleaa…ja haaleaa…

Tietysti nega oli taas suuri pettymys, mutta tässä vaiheessa siihen on jo niin “tottunut”, että se v****aa vain hetken ja sitten on jo katse tulevaan. Eli sitä melkein ajattelee oletuksena ja plussa olisi sitten erinomaisen ihana yllätys! <;3

So it’s CD 5, and Mommy A started taking Clomid again on CD 3 for 5 days… So it’s been “hormone storm” here again… (it’s good that it’s only 5 days!!!). Because during every dose, she sometimes can act like a 3 year old…. *sigh… I’d understand hormonal changes (and would be very happy about’em, if she would be actually pregnant..). I’d be ready to like run around 11pm to buy some chocolate for her… or order pizza 2am….

So now we are again on square one and heading towards 7th try. The next ovulation will be around 2nd to 6th of Nov. But we have decided that we will try to get the first “batch” maybe as early as this sunday (Oct. 28th). Cause now we decided that we are not just gonna be looking for ovulation time too carefully… Instead if we are able to get sperm (from 1 or even from 3 different donors) like every other day or like 3 times per week, we are ready to do it.

We would be doing this like until Nov. 10th… So it will take a lot of syncing timetables, especially for morning rounds, but at this point we are ready to work even harder!

We haven’t officially talked about how long we are going to try, but at the moment we feel like at least 10 or 12 times… And if it’s not working out, then we gotta consider will we just stop or take a break. And to maximize our chances, we have decided to use more than one donor per round… And because that is totally fine for our “main” donor… Though he has teenage kids, he cannot be sure it his sperm works as well like it did around 15 years ago…

And we have also heard from friends that some of them have gotten pregnant “outside” the optimal ovulation time, very soon before or after it (right before periods).. And they know that b/c they haven’t had sex (these being straight couples) during ovulation, because of hubby’s business trip etc. so they know for sure when they did indeed get pregnant!… So we are now also thinking outside of the “ovulation box”🙂

But we are trying now, and also planning to do so in December… and maybe after that, it we don’t get lucky, we will take few month break and just relax without the need to think about any of this ovulation/sperm-rumba we’re having now…

We just talked yesterday how weird a month without trying would suddenly feel… Would it be like we would miss it… It’s been now 3 months in a row and it feels like forever….
But we still have, even after all setbacks, high hopes to have a baby some day. We know that if you compare to some other couples, we are just beginners! There are couples who have tried 2 years every month and only had a plus to the test stick after that…
