Quick Cycle Update

Went to the Dr again today 'cause he told me to call him if I felt like I was going to O. So I called him Monday to tell him I thought I O'd over the weekend.  I told him I had the whole EWCM for a few days and then sore bb's and all. That last one is usually a dead giveaway for me that I O'd.

I went in at 10:30 this morning and proceeded to wait in the procedure room for almost an hour. With the autoclave running. Man it got hot in there. I don't know why they always put me in the ugly procedure room except that it's the closest room to where they store the ultrasound machine. Who knows.

Anyway, after an hour the Dr finally came in to do the 5 min ultrasound and proceeded to tell me that it didn't look like I O'd but my cycle was about to start. But then he said maybe I did O and if I did asked me if it sounded about right that my cycle would start in about 20 days.

Maybe there's something I'm missing here. When I went in 2 weeks ago I discussed with him that my last cycle was about 70 days. Then he says, "So if your cycle is about 70 days then you should ovulate in the next 10 days or so around CD35". Does that sound strange to anyone but me?

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that when you O, regardless of when in your cycle, your new cycle should start in roughly 14 days. Unless you have some type of luteal phase defect you shouldn't O on CD35 and then 35 days later start your period. I'm really wanting to know if there's something I'm missing. Either my Dr is confused or he doesn't know his math.

It's almost enough to make me consider finding a new Dr if he wasn't the closest one around. The next closest is in Shreveport and is much more expensive. Besides, I'm not driving in Shreveport. Not doing it. The traffic in that town is crazy and the roads are terrible.

There were a few upsides to the appt though. Number one he didn't charge me. That has never happened to me before. Number 2, he told me to call when my next cycle starts (which by my 14 day standards puts it right at Christmas time. Merry Christmas to me, right) and he is going to add a medication to help me ovulate.

He didn't say what it would be, but my guess is that he'll try me on clomid first. Oh the lovely, hormone inducing, hot flash producing, make me want to kill you drug. I hope for my husband's sake that I'm wrong and he goes with something else.

We'll see what happens. I guess that that was almost a short update.

I'll leave you with a picture of my "baby".
