I am now officially onto my 13th month trying to conceive and today, I get to start my 5th month on Clomid. I am still on the 100mg — a good dose for me that has induced ovulation for two months prior.
I didn’t have high hopes that last month would be the one that worked for us. A combination of the stomach flu running through our house and an unusually hectic month, I knew our chances were there, but it wasn’t too likely. I was honestly thrilled that the medication got me to ovulate again and am hopeful that now that we’ve got that going, it shouldn’t be too long now.
It’s funny how things in life look different when you’re struggling to conceive. I’ve talked before about how infertility means a lot of waiting — to ovulate, the two week wait, the blood tests and so on.
I’ve come to realize that with infertility, not only is waiting a focus, but we begin to count differently. The infertility journey becomes about numbers and cycles verses days or months and I’ve begun to track things differently than I had before:

I have a good feeling about this month and am hopeful all things line up for us. How are you doing with your infertility journey?
