Andi, I just looked back at my charts and it seems clomid had me O'ing pretty regularly no matter the dose, between days 13-15. Did you take another OPK? Post a picture! On my BFP chart I actually got positive OPK's on CD 14 & 15 and then again on CD 26 so I think it is possible you got a surge but possibly didn't O and you will O soon! Keep testing!

Thanks Fly! I think you were right and I had a surge because my temp went back down today. About to test (opk) here in a bit and I'll compare pics of my last OPK that I thought was positive. Thanks for getting back to me!

Dana, yay it's exciting when we can be happy that AF shows! haha

Wishful, I'm sorry your chart is so crazy! I forget, have you seen a doc, do you get positive OPKs?

I'm good Danaa, thanks for asking! Just constantly busy with work. I meet my new OB here in Colorado on Tuesday and will probably have my glucose test done which I am a bit nervous about because my diet has not been the best lol! Otherwise, I am feeling tired and a little down. Honestly ready to meet baby, the third trimester is exhausting and I can never get enough sleep! How are you and Jack? XD

Hi Fly,

Sorry to hear you're feeling down. Those hormones suck! YOu will have to drink this super sweet fruit punch or hi-ci type drink within five minutes which is quite thick and syrupy and then get your blood drawn exactly at an hour after that. Be aware that there are false positives sometimes and you just have to do a longer test to see if you really do have gestational diabetes or not. Your diet really is not going to affect your results. However, don't drink or eat anything sweet before the test!

Dana, what's the weather like there right now?

I gave in and started to listen to Christmas music and took DS to Target and got some Christmas ornaments. Looking forward to Thanksgiving and the holiday season. We were going to DTD tonight and then every other day until I get my period, but the bleeding came back again. Oh well.

Much love to all

So I started today. I'm almost a week early and my chart didn't show ovulation. I will call Monday to see if they have my results of my blood test. I am so scared they will say I'm fine when my cycle has been so crazy!
I'll do personals later.

Hi ladies. Just a quick update from me. I am 10dpo today and bfn. AF is due Thursday. I am trying not to be too disappointed but it's just so hard. I only have one month left before my next specialist appointment where she will likely start me on the path to IVF, so I feel like I'm basically giving up at this point. I am feeling like it will never happen for me.
My best friend has recently started trying as well. I am so terrified that she will get preggers right away. Obviously I want her to get her BFP and not go through any of this. But I want to get mine first haha.

Loz - I feel ya so hard right now lol a friend of mine just sent me a pic of her BFP. I'm happy for her since I know she's been trying for a while, but I'm also a little competitive - like it was supposed to be me first!!! Try not to look at the path to IVF as giving up. It is just a pricey try to improve your chances :) I'm really hoping this attempt #2 (of just getting some good eggs!!!) will result in a baby for me.
Wish - that sucks about AF and your weird cycle. Fertility doesn't really seem like a science --- more like a black hole lol There are just a ton of variables.
Fly - is it already 3rd tri?!?! what is up with the speed of time! so close!
Dana - did you have any leftover frozen embryos? are you going to try again?

Wish looking at ur chart i say you might have ovulated in cd11-13 but with all those open circles is so hard to read ur chart and im sure FF has the same problem.Im going to say this again but in the end is ur choice and ur doctors go for a medicated IUI,don't waste ur time getting IUI whiteout proper ovulation.
Loz im sorry ur feeling this way,ivf is definitely not the end,as you can see both me and star are doing it and as you know I was pregnant for a short while but still I was and that is bcs Ivf!
Star yes I have 7 ice babies and I'm giving it another try,I'm going tomorrow for my baseline scan and hoping for he best.
Im looking for u to start ur process and im praying you get lots of healthy embryos!!

Lolz and Star, I totally understand. Not at all with anyone on this board, but I have felt competative as well with this round... like with my sister (who is 18 weeks pregnant) and others who just happened to get pregnant. I wanted them to get pregnant and were happy for them, but I wanted mine first.

I want you ladies to get your BFPs, too!

Hello Everyone,
I am hoping all of you are doing great.

Danaa: Thanks for the tip. For some reason, i cant see the full view button on my screen anywhere. Sry about your cousin. People have their own opinions about this stuff. I am hoping that female pitbull is being treated better now. You are going to be an amazing Mom! Cant wait for your next IVF trial.

Faith: I am so sorry you are feeling like this. Hugs.. I will pray your break proves fruitful for you. Happy Thankgiving. My break has really helped me, to stay sane.

Courtney: I am fxing for that ovulation and you catching the egg. And hoping that your DH is feeling better. When is his appointment for surgery or treatment? I remember you mentioning that new doctor has some plan for him. Good luck. Very glad to hear your kids understand what holiday spirit is all about.

Star: Very smart decision to move in house in January. Please share some pics when you can. I cant wait to hear about your IVF now. Yes, i will pray for really juicy eggs for you, and sweet little babies soon! Fxed for you.

Whoz: I am sorry to hear bleeding is back. Guessing body needs its time to heal. Hugs! And let me know whatever you wanna know about India. I will be here.

Wish: Sry about the AF. All this sometimes just seems so frugal, and utterly stupid. I hope your bloodwork gives you some answers. Good luck.

Indie: Good to bear things are going great. Good luck with rest of your pregnancy.

Fly: Wow, already 3rd tri! Amazing. Sry, you have been feeling so tired. Part and parcel i guess. Waiting for the lil one to meet all of us soon.

Loz: We have all been thr these emotions. Like my SIL, i was really happy for her. She had been trying for 1.5 years. But somewhere, i had wished, i could get it soon too. Now my cousin was telling me that she is starting out, and i am hoping i get it first. Purely selfish reasons that make us human!

Andi: Clomid can def cause multiple surges. I got my cycle monitored when i was on clomid. But it caused my ovulation regularly between cd12-14. In the third cycle, it did cause me a little thinning of my uterilne lining, and i was put on estradiol to help with that. Good luck hun.

EOE, hugs and sticky vibes..

AFM, i got a little busy celebrating my birthday week. Had a little party with my friends. And then my family came over. DH got me a new phone, which is what i had written last time about. Cant see the full view anyhow here. So cant see anyones signature.
I also started with AF, and so as per the schedule was asked for an ultrasound to be done on day 6. I was happy and surprised by the results. After having so much confusion last year with diagnosis of endo, and mild pcod, and all the meds, and monitored or drug based trials for 8 months, i think the break did me really good. My latest scan shows no evidence of endo cysts, or any pcod at all. In fact, i had healthy maturing follicle in my right ovary, and a smaller one in my left. Uterine lining was great too at 7.2mm for CD6..My new doc seems to think that i was prob misdiagnosed for endo, and it might hv been haemorrhagic cysts, cuz this much clearance doesnt happen. Either way, feels like some joke got played. Since, we actively tried for only 8 months, i have been advised to go ahead and try naturally again. For another 4-6 months. Else, IVF can be my best bet. So, here i am, entering in second season of my ttc. Hooing, i can maintain some sanity this time.

Fly - Wow can't believe you're already in the 3rd trimester! Time flies!

Dana - How did the appointment go today? Is it already monday there, it is here haha.

Wishful, I'lm sorry AF got you, that chart was wacky! Hopefully you get the results of the bloodwork soon. Try calling them before things get busy with thanksgiving maybe??

Loz - Awww I feel the same way!! I was the only one of my friends actively trying and now that my other friends are going to start i'm terrified that I'll be left behind. I want to be happy for them if they get pregnant but I know i'll be a little jealous.

Nicky - thanks for the clomid advice! Congrats on the good scan!! That's uplifting!

AFM - Not sure what's going on with my body this cycle. I've always gotten a + OPK by now with past clomid cycles. usually I o around cd 14. I don't feel like I'm about to O. We leave to travel Wednesday, I need that O to come before then so we can get a BD in. I feel so uncomforatble BDing at my in-laws. Other than that, I've done better this cycle about not obsessing too much. Hopefully I can keep it up.
