Thank you for the remedies ladies. I am just tossing back water and took acetaminophen.

I'm thinking about you all and feeling like a total slacker.

Aside from this nasty sinus issue, I have very tender nipples since last night that are not helping matters. Feel like a giant boo boo.

Please keep posting as I am reading but typing is not big on my list of things to do right now. I'm so sorry. HUGS :oops:

Aww faith get better soon love!
Dana, I hope you and your husband can move forward together, but I love your one day at a time attitude!
I have my transfer booked! For next Monday! It's not the BEST timing because I can't take 2 days off as planned and I will definitely be a little stressed and frazzled over that period, but I can make it work which is the important thing. Now, time to spiral into a crazy 'don't get my hopes up' wait!

Loz:FX for you! And your test looked positive to me. So hopeful for you. Oh and my husband made me warm chamomile tea which I drowned in honey and lemon juice. Opened me right up for some much needed sleep. I'm taking a mug full if this stuff to work with me today :) COME ON MONDAY!!!!

EOE I will go back over more posts tonight after work. I can't see them from my cell and respond to everyone. Hugs

AFM: Man sick or not my temps are up there. Normally no matter what they are low. Nice to think a good egg made it out. Today's temp was stupid high when I woke. It was the same orally and vaginal. Then the oral settled to 98.34. Normally my temp rises after moving around. This cycle it lowers. Ok, going to sneak more rest in. hugs

Loz: Your test does looks positive to me. Good luck with the transfer on Monday! Fxed for a nice BFP at the end of it. AFM, I have been asked to report on cycle day 2 at the clinic. They will start the procedure the same day. I am expecting next AF around 22nd May.

Faith: I am so sorry that you are feeling sick still. Vicks steaming usually helps me. And so does eucalyptus oil capsules, which you can sprinkle on your pillow at night. Get well soon! Fxed the temps are a good sign for a strong ovulation with clomid.

Danaa: You and DH are going to be fine. You are both lovable people, who are trying to be each other's support in these trying times. Keep the faith hun! Hugs.

Nickysy: Thank you. I'm hot tea crazy over here. Its helping but now I'm left with that mucous feeling in my throat all the time. Junk needs to end.

Where are we all at in our cycles? I test on Sunday 9dpo. I know we have transfers coming up and new cycles starting. I've been in such a haze lately.

Do we have any belly scans coming up?

HUGS EOE

AFM: Just sore nips, cramps, and right ovary paining me. Ugh. Nothing new really. :roll: OH cept for the high temps. I ordered OSOM tests to use this time. Supposedly you can get a positive as early as 8dpo in the pm. But if my temps drop by then I don't see a need. Clomid made temps high prior to O so FF set my coverline high. Hmm....time for some more spicey food. Will cath you all later.

faith - those are great temps. I hope you start feeling better soon.
Nicky - how exciting to get things going at the clinic soon :)
Loz - squeeee! I'm crossing everything for you and the success of this transfer!
Danaa- one day at a time - but have you decided on what your next steps will be?

AFM - AF kind of came today... pretty spotty so I'll see what happens in the morning and whether I need to change today to spotting or not. I'm looking forward to this next full month of ovaboost!!! my dh is going to be out of town for memorial day so I really really hope that I don't O at the wrong time this month... I'd prefer to O before he leaves, not after he returns.

Andia: Just saw your post. Clomid was uneventful really. Made me O on CD15 rather than CD10.

Star: I hope it gets heavier so you can just call it cd1. Take Ovaboost right away too. And if you can, take FertileCM too. It worked for me but read the reviews and decide for yourself, of course. :oops:

As for my temps, I'm like dang it, they are so high. Wish we had done some thing past supposed O day because my temp always super jumps 3 days past my intense o pain. I got pregnant with my daughter on the cycle that I did ivi on 3dpo too. I just wanted to be sure. I guess we will find out soon enough. Right now trying to kick this nasal congestion that has turned into chest congestion. I feel its on its way out though. I can't wait to smell stuff again... :D

Hello All!

I'm fixing for you, Lolz and Faith. Keep us updated!

Dana and Nicky, keeping you in my thoughts with upcoming and potential upcoming IVFs.

Star, and EOE thinking of you!

Just a quick update--my OB was totally onboard with doing Clomid and I just happened to get my appointment and prescription today the day BEFORE they recommend starting it, so I can start it this month around! They will start out on 50mg, and then up to 100mg and then 150mg of those cycles don't work. I know you don't have a good chance after 3 months, but I think we'll still try for six. Keeping up with everything else we do. Any recommendations on clomid, you guys?

Hahah..I meant 'catch ' not 'cath ' you later. Yeah, that sounded like fun.

Whoz: WhoHoooo!! Just in time!! All I can say is take Clomid the same time every day. I carried mine around with me in case I was away from home during dose time. I am so excited for you.

Hugs EOE

AFM: 6dpo and trying to ignore signs of impending AF. A BFP would surprise me to the core this cycle.

Yay whoz! What days did dr recommend taking it? 3-7 worked for me. I also used soft cups the month I got pregnant. It gave me horrible night sweats and a few headaches. Not bad all in all. Oh and I got furosious ovulation pain!

Faith I hope you are surprised by a bfp!

Hi everyone! Thanks for the advice. Why didn't my OB tell me to take it the same time every day? Why do I have to take it the same time everyday? I totally believe you guys, I'm just wondering what the reason is.

Also, my OB said that she recommends 5-9 because while the chances are lower then, if I do conceive the chances of miscarriage are also lower than using it earlier as the eggs are better quality.

Also, I've heard that if it's going to work it will work within three months and then the chances drop a lot after that until six months and then it doesn't make a difference at all for unexplained infertility. I've also heard you can only take six months of it TOTAL in your lifetime. Is that true? What if you took it for six months, then took a break for a year and went back to it? Would it still not up your chances? Do you really only have a total of six months to use it and then you can't even use it again or it won't work at all? It's discouraging to think we have such a limited time. We won't do IVF and IUI seems pointless bc DH's sperm is 120 mil, 85% motility and 10% morphology (which I am glad about--I don't mean to complain). :doh:

Whoz: My OB told me to take Clomid 3-7 because to increase overall health of eggs developing for Ovulation. We think my eggs need that exta 'ummf'. 5-9 helps one egg super mature in quality. If you take it super early like 1-5 or 2-6 you run the chance of a lot of immature eggs. This is the first time I've heard of there being a cut off for how long you can be on Clomid. I'm guessing because of over stimulation of the ovaries. Either way...YAY..I truly believe this is all you need. Its just a matter of getting the dosage right.

Momma: My husband and I are just waiting silently. We will truly burst if we get a bfp. Making fun plans to stay busy this weekend no matter what the results.

Hello everyone i just wanted to say I'm here reading along,I have been drinking a lot in the last two days and I was too dizzy to post anything:))
Whoz you can take
Clomid for more than 6months but a break is good in between,takiuur pills at the same time every day just helps with everything,ur body won't feel "bombarded " it will have a balance,Im not sure if im making myself clear.
I also know that taking clomid 5-9 is for the eggs quality,this protocol allows the body to choose wich follie will mature.
Eoe hello kisses and hugs!!

Whoz, my doctor initially told me only 6 months for Femara as well, but I think it's just because it's not an effective way to get pregnant after that. Because if it worked, you could take it again for a future child? Also, the clinic was happy for me to use Femara this cycle to bring on o for the transfer, even though I've technically already done 7 or 8 cycles of Femara. So I don't think it's the risk so much as that it's pointless by that stage. Hoping the clomid works wonders for you!!
Faith, GL!! When are you testing?
Dana, good to hear from you! What have you been drinking?
Nicky, crossing everything for your IVF cycle. Do you know what protocol you are doing?
I'm just hanging out for my transfer on Monday. Everyone around me is being so positive and it's almost like they expect it 100% to work. I am worried it will just get my hopes up and when it doesn't happen it will hurt more than usual.
My mother in law served soft cheese before dinner last night, and told me to 'eat up' because I would be pregnant on Monday and wouldn't be able to eat any more soft cheese. I had to explain that actually at that point I won't technically be pregnant, the embryo would not be attached to my body in any way. They all kind of rushed it aside and were like well yes it you'll be pregnant a few days later then! It's just making me really anxious. DH does not often talk about his feelings about TTC, I think I've said this before - he is just super positive and is like, well this next step will work! But this time I am worried he is getting really excited and might get a bit too attached to the embryo. He was rubbing my belly like this is where our little emby will be, we can nickname him or her ET til they're born, etc etc. I reminded him we don't know why I wasn't getting pregnant before while I was on the Femara, whether it was the egg quality or whether it was that the implantation wasn't happening for us. If it's the latter, maybe none of these embryo transfers will work.
I'm just in such a negative place and I don't want to be, but it's like the more positive everyone around me is, the more negative I need to be to protect myself.
