Fertility Woes

Last Wednesday I had my annual check-up with my OBGYN Amy, I planned on talking to her about fertility/infertility since we had been trying to get pregnant for 6 months and nothing and my cycles were between 42 and 46 days long for about 7 months. I went, had my appointment and she took some blood to check my thyroid levels, set me up for a sonogram to check my uterus, and sent me in a prescription for Prometrium.

Today was my sonogram, it was super quick and easy and whatever they were checking I should know about by next Wednesday. I am starting the Prometrium tomorrow night, 400mg every night for 5 nights. Apparently this drug is going to make me REALLY tired and I should get at least 8 hours, preferrably 9 or 10 hours of sleep. YIKES! I barely get 5 hours with all the overtime! On cycle day 21 (not sure when that will be yet) I have to go get a blood draw to see if I ovulated! Anyway I'm excited to get this all started and get pregnant!! :) :) :)
