I Tried to Make it Through 6 Cycles

Cycle #2

2 850mg Metformin/day
4 50mg Clomid/day on days 3-7

Did I ovulate? Yes

Am I pregnant? NO

... I tried to make it through 6 cycles this year, but I'm thoroughly exhausted. I really didn't think that taking my temperature everyday and taking a few pills would drive me crazy, but I'm getting there. I just need a break from "trying." I wanted to get through June, but it's only March and I can't take it anymore. Oh, well. I deserve a break. In total, I've been on fertility meds since November of 2008 = 1 year and 4 months. That time period included 13 cycles, 6 of which were anovulatory. I was "naturally" trying to conceive since we got married, which was for 4 years and 4 months before that.

I'm really ready to stop thinking about it. I've been hanging on for some reason, thinking I couldn't give up when I could get pregnant just this next cycle... and then the next one... and then the next one. Screw this Fertility Game Plan.

So, no more infertility specialist visits for awhile. No more choking down horse pills everyday. No more waking up at the exact same time every single day and laying perfectly still as I take my resting body temperature. No more timing sex. No more! When I get up enough energy to start again, I'll let yall know. For now, I'm gonna focus on getting back to a happy state of mind... and focus on adoption.
