As of the ultrasound at 0930 hrs I have a success. I have not one but four possible eggs for fertilization in the next two days. The nurse was surprised when the doctor gave us the go ahead for intercourse and the time we should do the deed. She said normally with four eggs they'll not let you have sex.
I'm still astounded to find more than one egg ready for release with only 50 mg of clomid in my first cycle. Well sure two cycles ago I did do clomid on my own as I've used it in the past. Three eggs were in the 30 size zone, not sure if it was microns they were talking or what, and one at 19 I have a better than twenty percent chance of conceiving this cycle. I just hope the fertile mucus stays thin enough now.
Ten years ago I was told by the German fertility specialist in Germany that I was primarily sterile. I had no hopes of ever conceiving. What can I say? Eating right does help make a healthy body and can reverse some problems.
My husband is a little shocked to know that if we are overly successful we might end up with more than one baby. I've been pregnant with twins before and lost them. Fingers crossed we'll conceive this cycle with one baby. I wouldn't mind two babies and I told him I'd handle three as well. I also explained to him about low birth weight with more than one baby and that they'll need extra care. I'm not going into this with my eyes closed. I know what could happen. I'll just take precautions and make arrangements as the time draws closer.
Until I do conceive I'll not count my babies until the eggs hatch. They do have to hatch from my ovaries and get fertilized.
Wish us luck.
