Crazy Morning

Yesterday I started my period. It was a busy day at school and I forgot to call the DR. in the morning. They are only open 1/2 day on Friday so when I called they were closed. I left a voicemail. They called me back at 8:30 this morning. The nurse said that they usually like to check people on CD #3 to do blood work for the Clomid Challenge test. She said that they were closed tomorrow but sometimes day 4 is okay. She scheduled me for Monday at 7:30. She called back 10 minutes later and said that my Dr thought that the levels would be off on day 4. He wanted to see me today if I could get there in 40 minutes or less because they were closing. If I couldn't get there I would have to wait another MONTH!! I live 40 minutes away on a good was raining. Plus I was in my PJ's, etc. I jumped in the shower, got dressed, grabbed a banana and headed out the door. I have never driven so fast before. I was so nervous. I'm glad they didn't check my blood pressure because I'm sure it was incredibly HIGH. I got there in time (I don't know how). The nurse took my blood, gave me my prescription, and my calendar. She told me that I would be taking 100 mg of clomid for 5 days...almost the same as for the IUI's except I took 50 mg then. I would go back next Sunday to get blood work done to check my FSH and estrogen levels. Then on January 22 I would get an ultrasound and possible HCG. They said that they would then do an IUI two days later if I wanted since I'm doing all this anyway. She said they have gotten pregnancies doing the CLomid challenge test. that made my heart skip a beat. I didn't know that I would be doing an IUI but it makes sense since I'm paying for everything else, why not pay $300 more to do the I don't waste my eggs. Wouldn't that be a MIRACLE!!! If I would get pregnant the month that I was doing test to see if I qualify for the IVF refund program, I WOULD FALL TO MY KNEES and PRAISE GOD:) That would be so WONDERFUL. Please pray extra hard for me this month. If it works we would save so much money and I wouldn't have to go through all the shots, etc for IVF. Maybe this is the plan that God had for us all along!!
