Vault, how many cycles will you try clomid for? Have you been testing this cycle? Strange that you don't O with such regular cycles I would have thought anovulatory cycles would be long.. shows how much I know.
What is your plan of action for next cycle if this one isn't BFP?
I'm gathering my arsenal already and have ordered some pure royal jelly that will be delivered on ice!! lolol if it doesn't help at least it's entertaining....
Also have to get some red raspberry leaf tea and i'm taking Q10 and maca and fish oil,, you can guess im all into the herbal s**t haha well at least for the moment :wink:

Well we've got another two courses on this prescription, waiting for AF now so we can start over. Then probably miss a month, I have to go away in April so the whole thing would be a massive pain in the arse. Then the last one, then back to the OBGYN for a review. I don't believe I don't O, whatever the doc says - too regular and AF is not the light pseudo-period anovulation tends to produce - five days, regular flow. So really I think I just O so late the day 21 bloods don't pick it up and the witch arrives too soon for anything to happen. Sounds like this trigger shot would do me some good. I'm going to ask for later ultrasounds this cycle too - up to day 20 or day 22, instead of up to day 18. Should give us a clearer picture moving forward. BFN today, at cd29 and a day late - I'm taking that as accurate result, wish AF would show and be done with it.

yeah that would explain it, that would give you too short of a luteal phase right? Maybe you could ask your doc to check your progesterone levels or you could start temping to get an idea... even though temping is no fun it does help let you know where you are ovulation wise, I had such long cycles before that when I conceived my son it was like day forty something of my cycle and I could pinpoint it exactly because i was temping and therefor give my doctor a false last period date and probably avoided an induction of a premature or not quite ready baby! So for that im totally thankful to temping, but for you at least it may help you determine your luteal phase length and help you get more info as to whats going on with your ovulation but then again you may not need to if you are already pregs

See literally everyone on here swears by the temping thing, but both the OBGYN and the nurse said not to bother as it's not accurate for everyone. Also everyone seems to take their temps in the morning, we are NOT morning people due to OH's work pattern and the fact that I run on a US clock for my own work, and so I'd probs miss the right time every day... OPKs didn't work for us and I got several positives a month at weird points - which would point to not ovulating apparently - so maybe my temps would be all over the place too, I dunno.

Never realised there was so much I didn't know about my own body haha! Figured after three decades in it we'd got pretty familiar - apparently not! On the plus side the clomid did at east seem to be working between cd13 and cd18, everything that was meant to be happening did so - with the exception of a definite O of course! Ah, I dunno. Bring on AF, bring on more clomid, maybe cycle 2 is the one for us...

Good on you for all the supplements and extras - can't hurt can it? I'm rubbish at taking pills but might look into some kind of tonic instead. We've got some pre-seed now, so try that next month as well - reviews are pretty positive, lots of first time BFPs with it, so FX...

Hey ladies,

I'm sad that this thread is dying but I've totally contributed to killing it... sorry I've been so MIA!! I think of you all often

Danielle - CONGRATS ON YOUR GIRL!!! Girls are amazing! You're almost at the halfway mark! How are you feeling?? Are things moving quickly??
Ari is an excellent sleeper, I must say. Leah was horrible so I feel like this was owed to me LOL. She is such a good baby I can't complain much about her. She does have a witching hour, so every night between 8-10pm she cries for no reason at all. It's getting better because I pushed back her bedtime. Sometimes I'm just in shock at how much she wants to sleep and never think that she just wants to be put to bed, haha. The soreness went away, but I just couldn't believe how different everything felt this time.

Lindsey - I hope you will still pop by! When are you planning your move to Australia? A friend of mine moved to Gold Coast almost two years ago.. she loves it and I don't think she's coming back lol. I don't know how you juggle two young kids (and a soon to be pregnancy!) plus school! Hoping you can pull off that BFP soon!! I also didn't realize that it's been 7 cycles for you this time. I don't blame you for being frustrated, it's hard especially when you have a plan in mind. FX for you!

Katy - I stalked around a few days ago and saw your post in the peestick forum.. HUGE congrats!!! :sticky: :sticky: How did I never put together that AD and Leah's bdays are only a day apart?! We celebrated Leah's 5th on March 3.. hope AD had an awesome 2nd bday!

Frances - the TTC craziness is NO JOKE. My DH and I decided that we won't try for a 3rd and that whatever happens, happens. I hope I can control myself. My friend who moved to Australia did what you suggest in your post - she sold what she could and then let friends and family come by to see what they wanted. Good luck on planning your move! Are you with your in-laws right now or did you already move out from there? If it's the former, I bet you can't wait lol

Vault - WELCOME! Sorry this thread (and site) is kind of dead nowadays. Also sorry about the long TTC journey but since you just got some answers recently, I'm thinking you will be knocked up in no time! You can see in my siggy, I had no issues with my first but my second took several rounds of Clomid. After a 5-cycle break, I went back to clomid and just did my best to keep consistent and got my BFP within three cycles, so yeah, keep things as consistent as possible for a few months at a time would be my advice! Are you being monitored or were you just prescribed Clomid?
Also where do you live?

Gaya - have you returned to work? How are you?

EOE - love you

AFM - Ari turned 2 months on the 4th.. hard to believe! She is growing sooo quickly so I'm not longer afraid of her being too fragile lol. Leah is adjusting well but of course still has her outbursts. She talks back a lot more now but not sure if thats age or jealousy. I just can't believe I have a 5-year-old. This week is March Break (or spring break) so it will definitely be a bit of a challenge. I just wish it weren't so damn cold outside so I could take the kids out and let Leah burn off some energy. I AM SO OVER THE WINTER!

Anyway, while I was pregnant this time around my DH and I said we'd definitely be going for a 3rd regardless of what gender we had because I wanted both - a son and another daughter. Well, obviously the first month was a huge adjustment and challenge so DH has been saying that he's happy with 2 kids, doesn't want another. I keep asking him his true feelings because I'm confused about whether he's being truthful and he keeps saying he doesn't want more kids (also points out that we only have 3 bedrooms). So I agreed that I am happy with 2 girls, we don't need more. Saw my OB he told me about Mirena then I asked DH if I should get 3 years or 5 years and he says "none. let's see what happens"
SOOOO if you want a man's true feelings just threaten birth control, ladies. Not sure if I will TTC again but NTNP is definitely in my future.

Hiya! UK based, in the North (thankfully, as we seem to have quite an all-inclusive NHS package - was reading earlier that some regions have to pay for follicle tracking scans etc, and that others literally get 1 IVF round and that's it (we get three free, as long as we're in before age 35 - that's what kickstarted us TTC properly, as obv there's months of clomid and other interventions before they look at anything like IVF). How about you?

Now that I know Clomid's working for me, as of today, I feel a lot more positive about it. The side effects last month were pretty crappy, especially towards the end when everything could be Clomid or PG symptoms, but now I know exactly what to expect - so bring it on! Haha. We're bringing in Preseed this month, seen some good first-time BFP stories with it, so hopefully it's our magic ingredient as well.

Stories like yours are proof it does all work out eventually, and they give me hope that one day it'll be our turn. :D

I will start with my update:: Hi ladies, sorry for being MIA....I have some exciting news, I am pregnant! Since I have a history of losing pregnancies, I am praying this one is sticky. Dev, you stalker, you already figured out! I am 4 week, 2 days I believe. First appointment is 3 weeks from tomorrow. So far, lines have been darkening so I am cautiously excited! tired and super bloated and a little crampy but no nausea yet. Enjoying all the meat and veggies before morning sickness hits in a week or two.

dev- I had no idea our girls birthdays were close! so fun. I need to post a pic from AD's birthday. How is she two? So glad you have a good sleeper this time? Are you feeling okay? How was the second section? Warning on Mirena-- mine had to be surgically removed, so if you do go that route, ask them to cut your strings long enough that it can be pulled out. Because of our many failed removal attempts and then the removal, it put off TTC a few months and cost me probably 1500 dollars ughh. I like the "see what happens" plan, thats my vote!!!!!!!! After this baby, I plan on no BC, just NFP, nursing, condoms maybe (although husband usually refuses) until we are ready for a 3rd and seeing what happens. Baby 2 and 3 will be closer together than 1 and 2-- moving and having to look for jobs and take bar exam slowed down when we would have kid 2. Hope you are in a good 2 kid routine now!

Lindsey-- I am going to miss you on the boards. I am not always so active but I do love catching up. Its okay though, I am about to text you right now to annoy you into showing me your OPK. haha. can't escape me, woman! how did your appointment with the specialist go?

Vault-- hi!!! FX Clomid does the trick. We used pre-seed with my daughter. We did the pre-seed/soft cup combo after sex and it worked, I think, or at least helped. This time I kept forgetting to buy pre-seed SO we only used soft cups..... Temping worked well for me, but I have a HUGE shift (see chart in my signature) so it was easy to see when O happened, but I agree with your doctor, its not always as clear for everyone else! Sounds like Clomid and Pre-seed is a great plan this month! GL!

Francis-- sounds like you have the medicine cabinet ready for trying!!! I used a lot of supplements the past couple months then forgot to take most of this past month oops. I did do bromeliene after ovulation though. Hope the supplements help with healthy eggs and a pregnancy soon! Baby dust, mama!

Star- thinking of you always, mama. I know this is a hard time. Please let us know when your next transfer is so we can send prayers and baby dust your way. Wanting this so badly for you!



Thinking of you all, excited for a few more pregnancies soon!
