your a$$vice, please

apparently, there's a big public health problem out there that i was formerly completely unaware of. if you guessed snor.ting ad.vil, you are exactly right! i'll be honest, i was completely oblivious of the ad.vil snorters, before starting a blog. don't get me wrong, i love me some ad.vil. love it. feel blessed and grateful to live in a time and place where it's available. don't know why people would choose to snor.t it, but hey, it's their nostrils and their ad.vil. i just wish google would stop linking us!

my temp dropped to day and i have a feeling AF will show up tonight. so, the 2nd IUI was a bust. i'm pretty sure i didn't ovulate after the shot, either because they had me trigger too early (boo on the clinic), because i forgot the powder in the car for 4hrs on a hot day (boo on me), or just because (boo on ... uh... the irony loving powers that be?).

anyway, i'm here in SC for the next month, and so will not be able to do an IUI. too expensive and logistically complicated to get both of us up to DC for the monitoring etc. i could take clo.mid this cycle w/o doing an IUI. that would be my third clo.mid cycle. at my clinic, you only get 6 cycles of clo.mid before they move you on to bigger and better things (HA!). i don't want to 'waste' a clo.mid cycle if the odds are low bec of no iui. on the other hand, it would be hard to let this cycle go by with nothing but well timed intercourse (HA again! [derisive snort] well timed intercourse...HA i say![chuckles under breath]). what do you guys think? your a$$vice greatly appreciated.

Sorry to hear about your temps and AF's likely visit. You never know though -- I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

As for snorting Advil, I think you should take this opportunity to establish yourself as the expert. Do you know how many people would kill to be #2 on Google search for a given phrase? (I think still has you beat). Before long, you could be speaking at conventions, lecture halls, etc.

I would find out the exact post that is causing the link, and just modify it.

Oh, you want Assvice on the month? I LOATHE taking months off, but I loathe throwing money down the drain even more.

You aren't going to be in Hilton Head are you?

Sorry about the temp drop.

Unfortunately, like LJ said, you need to pick the lesser of the two evils, cycle-wise.

I *love* giving a$$vice. :)

IUI's only add a bit to the odds of pregnancy from clomid. It's, from my pov, no great drama to do a clomid + sex cycle. Hell, it even worked for me once, somehow and my husband has some pretty mutant sperm.

I probably wouldn't take the Cl.omid. I would take it only if not taking it would delay my period and cause me to have to take more meds to bring it on. But--I'm only speaking from having friends on clo.mid. There's my assvice!!
