"Seems like a no brainer to me." That's what my good friend said when she got the fertility appointment wrap up. I won't bore you with all the details, but the bottom line is that my hormones are still pretty messed up from the miscarriage and were likely messed up prior to, which is what the specialist said probably caused it in the first place.
Her solution? 100 percent Clomid. A low dose. The lowest dost possible. She said that this drug was made for people like me, with this exact problem. She said I am not infertile, I just need a little help getting my body in perfect baby order. Her concern was that if I didn't take the Clomid, and got pregnant on one of these random
cycles I would have a higher risk of miscarriage again.
To this I responded pill please!
- Get pregnant within next three months (she said this is a very likely possibility.)
- Get to actually keep baby number three (she said the miscarriage rate will be lower and she is giving me progesterone to help keep the baby in place when it clings on.)
- Twins. As in TWO babies. The doc told me the true risk is 10 percent. As in one in ten.
- For the five days you are on it you can become a bit of a moody mummy.
Right? Seems like a no brainer to me.
I'm having my pills delivered tomorrow and will begin on the next cycle. I still have this month to "try" and I am still hoping we can get it the natural way. If not, next month the journey begins. 90 percent chance of only one....that's what I keep telling myself.
