Well, the smiley face was a lie.
I had a progesterone test done one week later and it came back at 1.6 - not good. A couple of days later Mother Nature confirmed that I wasn't pregnant. I was devastated. I think I just pinned all my hopes on the clomid that I got blindsided.
Anyway, after a lot of crying I was able to make plans for the following month. I was also able to enjoy throwing Natalie her bridal shower. It was a really fun day overall.
My doctor recommended another round of clomid followed by the HCG trigger shot. This shot is designed to be given once a follicle reaches a certain size and will force ovulation within 36 hours. I went in for an ultrasound on Tuesday which was CD11 and my lead follicle just wasn't quite big enough - only about 35 mm. I was bummed.
But I went back today, two days later and the lead had grown to 44.6 mm which is right within range for ovulation! I got the trigger shot so we'll see what happens!
I'm including the ultrasound picture of my lead follicle. I have no idea if it's you or not (I hope so) but I thought it would be a cool thing to have. :)
