9dpIUI, 2ww? What 2ww?

I don't have much to post about. I'm trying really hard not to think about my "status." You know what I'm talking about. But here are the things I'm thinking about instead:
  • I'm turning 35 next month. Ouch!
  • When my OB/GYN gave me a clomid prescription after 6 months of failed TTC, I had no idea what it was. And he didn't explain anything. He just said, "Take this on days 3 to 7 of your cycle. This helps a lot of women get pregnant." It was DH that asked me later if it increased the chances of twins and I was like "I don't know." I had to google it to find out that it was an ovulation inducer. But I knew I was already ovulating on my own. I was so confused!
  • I'm probably going to have to do IVF. That's just how it is (okay, that's a little too close to thinking about my "status").
  • Do older childless women really seem to be generally more bitter than the average person, or am I projecting?
  • What happens to my fertility chart ticker when my cycle goes beyond 30 days?
  • Is it going to start snowing already, or what?
That's all I got.

Beta Monday (12dpIUI).

POAS... Sunday?


  1. I had the same experience with Clomid. I took it not knowing what I was taking but still no dice.

    I hope that this is your cycle for a BFP!

    Thinking of you!

  2. You don't sound bitter at all, but I do know how you feel. I shoot knives with my eyes at all preggies without even meaning to. I hope you get your BFP this weekend, just in time for your bday!

    Also, thank you so much for your comment on my blog, re: the cyst that won't go away. I literally had no hope for BC working in 21 days and was already starting to google away at aspiration. Your anecdote totally gives me hope that it could work without more intervention. Thank you!

  3. I really know how you feel. The turning 35 thing, especially is a hard one (I hit it about a month ago). No matter that I know that it's not like a switch was turned the moment I hit 35, it was definitely an age I thought for *sure* I'd already be pregnant by...

    GL with your beta!!

  4. Don't sweat the b-day. In a month you'll only be a month older than you are today, not a whole year older. And who knows what might happen in that month? Hopefully some good beta news. Good luck!

  5. Oh boy, I hear ya. I am 12dpIUI today...beta on Monday. I'm expecting my period to start any second, since it was due yesterday. Surely the progesterone supps are delaying the inevitable. I'm too chicken to POAS....but if you want to, go for it! Good luck on Monday!!!
