Clomid Midcycle Ultrasound

Yesterday was CD13 and I went in for my midcycle Ultrasound for the Clomid Cycle. There was a 23mm follicle on my left ovary and a few smaller ones on my right. Thank you dear Left Ovary for doing your job! And I am sorry for doubting if I ever ovulated from my left side. Back in Feb when I took Clomid for the first time, it was my left ovary which ovulated. So looks like my Left Ovary is trying pretty hard to give me a chance to conceive.

Now to the bad part. I began noticing some Fertile CM only on CD13. Usually I have around 5 days of Fertile CM. I am yet to get a positive on OPKs. I am freaking out if I will be ovulating late (like CD 17-18) and by that time my 23mm follicle would have turned into an enormous size. So my dear ovary, if you could release the little eggie in time, I would be really happy.
The last time on Clomid, I had a 20mm follicle on CD13 but I peaked only on CD 17. So I was wondering if that could be a problem. I have read about immature follicles causing problems but what about large follicles. Can it cause miscarriages due to poor egg quality or something? Maybe, I should ask for a Trigger Shot next time.

I have started Armour Thyroid 30mg and though I have been getting mild headaches, I think I feel much better on it. Vitamin D (50,000 Units) and Fish Oil have been added to my list of supplements.

I am praying and hoping that the Clomid will do the trick and I will conceive this cycle. Oh my dear Mother, please intercede to your beloved Son. He won't refuse his dear mother's request. St. Jude, pray for us.


  1. Praying for you and that left ovary! I hope this is the cycle for you. Praying! Praying!

  2. Sending some prayers your way. Our Napro Dr. will be talking with us about starting Clomid at our November meeting. I'm glad I have found someone who's walked the road before me. Thanks for sharing your journey!

  3. Well, I am not a fan of the Clomid, anymore, personally... but it does sound promising that it is working well for you! What was your lining like? Two side effects of Clomid are thinning out the lining and decreasing your cm.


  4. Praying for you and your follies!
    Have you tried B6 (500 mg sustained release 1x day) or Mucinex Max (1200 mg. gualfasin 3x day) or Ammoxicillan (500 mg 3x day) on about day 10 up to P+2? I don't want to be ignorant if you have, but that should help your CM improve.
    Regardless ... praying for ya, dear!
