We are finally starting treatment -- YAY!!!  T's numbers are all great and I started Clomid yesterday.  On June 26, I go in for my ultrasound to see if there are any "good" eggs.  I am nervous, hopeful and full of dread at the same time.  I think I am creating an ulcer LOL.

The other nifty thing I learned here recently is that hormones out of whack can give you heart palpitations.  I started having heart palpitations the other week and had to go in to see the doc.  She referred me to the cardiologist who advised me that fluctuating hormones can cause PVCs - premature ventricular contractions...i.e palpitations.  FANTASTIC.  As if my hormones weren't causing enough problems as it is, now this.  Poor me LOL.  It's not that big a deal.  I even found out that this is fairly common in pregnant and menopausal women.  Who would have thought that hormones could cause so many issues within a body.

On the humorous side, I was explaining to my mom a while ago about how things work if the doc finds a good egg or two.  So, I tell her,

"If we have any viable eggs, the doctor will tell me when to take my Ovidrel injection."
"What's that?"
"A drug to release my eggs.  Using that, we would know exactly when I ovulate and then T and I can, you know, at the right time."
"Moommmm!!! You knooowww..."
"No, I don't.  What would you and T....OH!!  OH THAT!"
"Has it really been that long, Mom, that you've forgotten what THAT is?  How else would T and I make a baby?"
>Insert very nasty look from my mother<

Now, hopefully, all it's gonna take to get us pregnant is some fertility drugs and a lot know :)
