I Want A New Drug

I'm starting to research other ovulation-stimulating drugs. If anyone out there in the web-iverse knows about Serophene, or Femara, and has used them personally, I'd love to hear your experiences with them. I've heard from a few friends who've used them, but I'm hoping for more information. I just like to be well-informed when I go in for a consult with the RE.
Thanks to anyone who can assist!

Lonely little 15

I was freaking out over the cyst, so I went to the RE to have them check on it, make sure it hadn't grown to the size of a ping pong ball. Mercifully, it had shrunk to about half it's former size. While they were in there, they checked my other ovary and found a 15. The Doc instructed me to go home and "try it" for a few days. Great idea, except IvoryBoy is away for the next 2 weeks, and I can't "try it" alone...

Also can't seem to sleep alone. (Do you hear violins?)

Derailed, Depressed, Delovely

Life's a b*tch, and so is Aunt Flow.

Not only did I get my period on Thursday, but the science experiment is on hold. On Friday, I went for my day 2 ultrasound and blood-work, and the Doctor found a cyst large enough to scrub this cycle. IvoryBoy and I will hopefully be able to get an appointment next week to go talk to our RE about what this means, do we need to do anything about it, and if the meds need to be adjusted.

From what I've found on message boards and other helpful websites, cysts are common. I just hope it doesn't get more painful. Right now it's just uncomfortable, and I can handle that. Not looking forward to anything more painful than that though.

Also - I wanted to welcome Shayna to my followers! Sorry for the crabby-pants entry today, I hope you'll stick around and comment anyway!

Waiting is the Hardest Part

If I don't get my period before Friday, I'll be going for a pregnancy blood test. As I've said before, that's sort of feeling scary right now. I keep feeling cramps, and soreness in my boobs, and slight nausea, just like I've felt every month that we've been doing this. I keep thinking "Maybe this time it's working." It's so hard to concentrate at work, or even at home on anything. I've been reading, trying to keep my brain too busy to think about it. I just have to get through 4 days (well, 3 1/2 now...)
And why does time seem to go by so much slower when you're waiting for something really important like this?
