Almost Done w/Femara!

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!

  3. our re always said that it is healthy for dh to take care of business or do the deed two days before the bdancing begins bc it makes for good swimmers. and then to take a day or two break and go every day or every other depending on quality of sperm. i think you are perfect with your "routine." :)
