Well, it's CD9 and today will be my last dose of Femara this cycle. So far the only side effects are slight headaches (Tylenol seems to help these a lot) and off and on hot flashes. I tend to notice these more if I'm up and moving around....although last night I kept sweating in bed! But overall, the side effects really aren't that bad. Minor at best. And totally worth it.
My instructions from my OB said to not DTD CD#5-11, then every day CD12-16. But, I've been worried about O'ing early. I have no idea how this Femara is going to affect me and I've read of several people that have O'ed as early as CD12. So, DH and I BD'ed on Sunday (CD7) and will probably again tonight. Just in case. I'm wondering if he says not to on 5-11 so we can save our energy? Hmmm, not sure. But DH would do it twice a day everyday if he could and not get tired. If anyone is going to run out of energy 12-16, it'd be me. But I'm not going to let that happen! I'm doing EVERYTHING in my power to make this cycle work. I'm taking my prenatals everyday, finally! I just need to get into the habit of taking it everyday and it'll be easy.
I'm so excited for the next few days to see what happens. I already started my OPKs. I know...early. But I couldn't wait and I don't want to miss a surge!
Fingers crossed I actually O. Anytime before CD20 would make me happy!
