Hello , just wanted to share my story as reading others has kept me motivated with our baby making journey ... LONG POST !! Sorry
Age 36 , previous children now aged 15 & 11 years conceived without problems , now TTC since March 2015 with the love of my life after coming off birth control coil but have PCOS , periods stopped July 2015 and only had 1 since to this date in July 2016 . I live in the UK so until 12 months had passed GP wouldn't investigate and thought just hormones not settling after birth control. Referred to gynaecology had HSG (normal) , blood tests (reversed LH and FSH) , partners sperm analysis all normal , so was told all due to ovulation problems and put on progesterone to induce AF and Clomid 50 mg .
1st cycle clomid 50 mg days 2-6 post induced period with prog, clomid side effects mild hot flashes and light cramps , follicle USS at cd12 1 follicle 10mm :( , OPK positive CD20 with cramps, post OPK had all early pregnancy symptoms under the sun - + heavy cramps from cd 18- cd 26 , however due to partner being unwell during fertile week we didn't manage to BD every other day so I wasn't hopeful on timing , DAY 21 blood test prog 19 .. ... And worst heavy and crampy AF arrived on its own CD32 before even tested... So sad :( but pleased period didn't need inducing which was one positive as I felt this meant my hormones are balancing!
2nd cycle clomid days 2-6 50 mg .... BFP!!! BFP!!!@ Cd31 not sure dpo as no follicle tracking scan , no positive OPK or ovulation cramps so thought I was out . Didn't feel any side effects clomid this month either so assumed not working for me. However had some different symptoms ...
cd14 - cd 29 really sore nipples ( never ever have this ) , started mild and gradually got more and more sensitive/ painful , feet lumpy right behind nipple, then mild pain again to now
Cd 10 BD
Cd14 BD , sore nipples
Cd17 Clear cm BD , sore nipples
Cd 20 Ewcm , BD , sore nipples
Cd 22 white sticky cm , BD, really sore nipples, more energy , difficulty sleeping , feel itchy down below thrush starting ? ,
Cd23,24,25 white sticky cm , really sore nipples, not itchy and no thrush , more energy and waking in the night , skin feels clearer ,
Had bloods taken for progesterone ( thought I would do it cd25 instead in case of later ov)
Cd 26 ... Where are my cramps like last month ? Not even one twinge the whole cycle . Sore nipples and sides of breasts , feel tired, passing urine more and smells strong despite being clear , drinking +++ so thirsty, skin clearer
Cd 27 nothing different than yesterday Cd 28 ? EWCM - BD, headaches , tired
Blood results progesterone gone up = 58 !!! Yes I ovulated ?when, no OPK or cramps .... Weird
Cd 29 white clumpy cm, boobs less sore , 1 X sudden wave of nausea , poas ... Very Faintest ? Evap line within 10mins on 25miu blue test but quite thick no colour , hmmm don't get excited
Cd 30 white clumpy cm, on and off headaches, tired around eyes , nose sniffly, tiny pin prick red spot on cm, hungry+++, urine smells , hot flashes
Poas 1 X 25 MiU test ?faintest line then nearly disappeared , only seen at certain angles , No colour
Poas 1x early 10 MiU test BFN , so gutted but why am I feeling so different ?? Clomid playing tricks?
Cd31 AF due tomorrow , FMU 430 am , is that a BFP? ??????
Within 3 mins could see very very faint line , grey but not blue like control line , hmmm not sure ... But never had consistent Evaps , told partner not to get hopes up but I was slightly excited . Couldn't wait though ! Held 2nd morning pee again 3 hrs ... PREGNANT OMG !!!!! CB digital 1-2 weeks !
So excited never ever thought this would be happening , hope it sticks !! Good luck ladies and don't give up ... I never thought this month would be a BFP! Thankyou Clomid!
