Oh that's such great news and those tests look perfect! Fingers crossed betas confirm a sticky bean!

Mrs.K, it certainly sounds like the clomid is doing something! Hopefully it's the boost you need for that bfp! I know I'm lucky with the ewcm, but I should also mention I only had 2 days of fertile cm recorded the cycle I got pregnant with Henry, so you don't need days and days of it! Mine comes and goes on those days, too. I usually notice it after a bm, then the rest of the day it just feels wet.

Yes, he's pretty much normal! He just has a bit of a lingering cough but he's not on any meds anymore. :) No more definite signs of O here. But I would certainly hope to see some watery or ewcm by today or tomorrow. I have noticed my anxiety creeping in, which often peaks right before O.

It sucks because I start blaming hubby in my mind for things that upset me so it doesn't exactly put me in the mood to bd. Right now I'm all worked up about something that happened two weeks ago. It was a minor thing then, but today I'm obsessing over it and how it just has to be a symptom of a bigger problem. Logically I know it's not that big of a deal and there are multiple solutions, but I'm angry that it happened in the first place. I gave him permission to make this choice but I wasn't clear enough about not agreeing with it. So I'm mad at myself for not speaking up more or putting my foot down, but more mad that he knew my worries and had the freedom to choose and chose to do what would make him happy in the short term instead of the responsible choice in the long run. It involved most of the money I had saved up for a baby/ RE fund, so it's kind of hitting close to home right now. We'll be able to put the money back, but instead if putting it back in one big chunk right away as hoped (I don't like to say I told you so, BUT I TOLD HIM THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN), it's going to take paying into savings for another 6-9 months once we sell a car that's not selling. I'm just scared I'm going to find out I need more help and now the money we had to dig a little deeper into all of this is almost gone.

Anyway I know that's not exactly what you asked about, but I needed to get it off my chest! I think we'll have a little chat about it tonight so the air is clear for the upcoming busy weekend we have which I suspect will also be my fertile window!

Good luck on the BDing! I think we may be doing a similar plan just out of coincidence lol. It's what we aimed for the cycle I got pregnant with Henry, too. ;)

Ewcm has arrived! Opk negative, but pretty dark. I expect a positive tomorrow or the next day. I'm feeling better about things already. My SIL and I took the kiddos to the beach and I let out all my frustrations there. (She's hubby's brother's wife so she gets it lol.)

Our insurance covers an RE, but we have a high deductible, so we still had close to $1,000 that we would have to pay out of pocket before our low 10% coinsurance would kick in. Specialists are expensive and they'd probably want to do at least an ultrasound (around $300) and then if they decided to do any other procedures, they'd be out of pocket until that deductible was met. I already have about $400 of medical bills I expect to be coming any time now from my last ultrasound and several visits to the lab for bloodwork. Hubby was expecting to sell our newer car quickly and make a couple grand on it to put back into savings, but there's just not much interest in the car. We've lowered the price to below what it's worth and nothing. We won't have the $330 car payment each month if it sells, but we'll probably sell it for about what we owe on it, so it will take time to build that money back up. Really, though, that $330 a month should be enough to pay medical bills as they come. And if I do get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy, the money will be back in there by the time I have the baby. We had no savings when I had Henry and we're STILL paying off his birth! It's all going to be ok, just not ideal. And my earlier fumings about how this must mean he's not committed to having another baby were an overreaction. Men live in the here and now. He's not thinking of babies all the time and that's ok (healthy, probably!) I know he's on board with the plan to actively try for another pregnancy. And if I lose another one and need to see an RE, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. If worst came to worst, we could sell our other car, or my dad (who knows all about our struggles this year) would definitely help cover the cost, by loan or gift because that's just who he is. Everything's going to be ok. I just need to stop overthinking it all!

Thank you. It seems I just need something to freak out about around this time each month lol. Today it's the fact that I have not seen any now ewcm. We didn't BD last night because I usually get several days of ewcm and I didn't want us to wear ourselves out too early. But then today, it just seems like kind of creamy/watery which is weird for me. I keep checking, thinking that it will suddenly go back to ewcm.

I KNOW that I don't have ewcm all day for all of those days, so it could come back later today, but right now I'm wondering if the tea, baby aspirin and/or b complex could be delaying O for me. Logically I know that the chances of that are low, but I do think it's possible, so I can't stop wondering about it.

I think this cycle in particular feels like a lot is riding on it. After 3 bfp's coming on every 3rd cycle, I expect to get one this cycle (dangerous expectation, I know). But that can only happen if we get our timing right.

There's also so much riding on the outcome of my next pregnancy... So I just want it to happen. All of this is making me extra paranoid and I feel kind of like a crazy person today!

I'm going to try to keep myself busy today and hopefully the ewcm will be back this evening and all will be well in my little brain lol. Oh the things TTC does to us!

Ok, so I just checked cm again and if I reach waaay up, and kind of scrape the sides, I get a little bit of stretchy ewcm. I took an opk, not expecting much, and it was a clear positive right away. This means O day is likely Sunday. I'm not sure why my normally abundant ewcm seems to be missing, but I've been drinking a ton of water all day and just popped a Mucinex, so hopefully there will be some there tonight!

If an opk tonight goes darker than the control (it's even with it right now), then O day is Sunday. If it doesn't do that until tomorrow, I *might* have until Monday. I thought I was being smart by not bding on the very first day of ewcm. Now I wish we would have done it last night. :(

Hey slippery is good! And even regular-ish cycles keep you guessing... Fingers crossed for us both this cycle!

So several hours after the Mucinex and a day of drinking tons of water, the ewcm has returned. It's not abundant, but was enough to make it to the tp. It suddenly occurred to me that I took several doses of Sudafed this last week because my sinuses we're all stuffed up. I haven't taken it in probably 4 days, but I'm wondering if that's what the problem was. I did notice really bad dry mouth the last couple of days as well, but I just thought I was dehydrated. Anyway... Hopefully that wasn't enough to harm my chances!

So for some reason my other account got deactivated :/ as did ALL of my posts for some reason - ugh !

Anyways, I bet the sudafed was the cause of the disappearing CM! But yay for it returning! Hopefully you guys are able to take full advantage of it this weekend :) have you had any O pains yet? Or a jump in temperature?
as of the morning I still had a "low" reading on the digital OPk. Not going to lie, it's bumming me out that nothing is happening yet. I was hopeful that I would at the very least have a "high" reading by this point. Of course I started googling about clomid NOT working and have put myself right into a little funk. i guess I need to remember it's only cd12- but it's tough to do that at the moment.

How weird about your account! I have had O pains on both sides the last couple of days, but tonight they are definitely on the left. I have wondered on a couple of cycles if I have O'd from both sides. I don't have a family history of hyperovulation that I know of, but I can usually tell clearly which side it is and the last couple of months it felt like both! I did read that's possible the 3 cycles or so after a loss. So we'll see! O day should be tomorrow.

As for the clomid, isn't there a certain number of days that you will O in? Like within 10 days if the last pill or something? I can't remember, but I swear a friend if mine just told me that. I can ask her the specifics of you want. But yes, you still have time!!! I know how frustrating it is, though, when you just want to know you are timing things correctly. Hopefully you see some action on that front in the next couple of days.

I did read an article about the effects of the gravitational pull of the moon affecting cycles and it suggested that the conditions during the eclipse could cause upsets to cycles. I don't know how much truth there is to that, but this cycle has been a bit off for me, so maybe? Anyway... Almost to the tww now!

I think its so neat about feeling distinctive O pains- my past few cycles my pains have been cramps (at times debilitating) and I could never pin point what side anything was actually happening on. Interestingly , I read that really bad cramps at O time could be an indication of estrogen dominance which would explain my short LP. As far as hyperovulation goes- that would cause fraternal twins correct (or at least it could?) that would be something! My hubby and I were just talking about Twins the other night because your chances of them does increase on clomid . :)

And! I spoke to soon haha, I got a "high" reading on the digital this morning! Last cycle I had 3 days of high before I got my peak. If that holds true again I would O on cd16 which would be 9 days after last clomid (you are supposed to O 6-9 days following the last pill). I am cautiously relieved at this point because in my googling madness I did read about some women getting like10 days of "high" readings and then never actually o'ing. But at this point I will happily accept that something is happening and that it's happening when it's supposed to in my cycle!

I have seen things about how the moon affects cycles as well- I know there are some people out there who have trained their bodies to have their cycle follow the moon phases with light therapy - seems like a lot of work to me haha

Interesting to note also that I have no cramps whatsoever right now- I was actually shocked to see the high reading this morning. I am hopeful that means the clomid is working and making my body work more efficiently!

Ok a little bit of cramping- but no where near what it usually is- and a little bit of EWCM! I am going to drink a TON of water the next few days and see if I can increase what I have - but we will probably use pre-seed too :)

Pop some Mucinex, too! It made a huge difference for me this cycle with my missing ewcm! But , if you're just getting first high reading, that means estrogen has just risen, so maybe you have not ewcm on the way. I think a little bit of cramping around O is normal. I was just thinking yesterday how if I didn't know where I was in my cycle, I'd assume AF was about to start by the way I was feeling. (But I also haven't had my hormones tested and have suspected estrogen dominance as a result of maybe low progesterone?) Anyway, I'm glad you got your high reading. It certainly looks like things are moving right along!

Hyperovulation can result in multiples. I'll take any babies I can get right now lol (ok, maybe just the 1-2 range!) I'm not 100% sure that's what's going on, but I think it's possible. I had definite O pains on the left yesterday. But I had several instances of localized throbbing/pinprick feelings right over my right ovary, so it just makes me wonder... *And now the waiting begins.*

I definitely have more EWCM tonight then I did this morning so I am hoping this little trend continues! Who knew you could get so excited over bodily fluids lol :) I may grab some mucinex when I am out tomorrow - I haven't decided if I should give that a go yet or not. We will definitely use the pre-seed, my only hesitation with the mucin ex is I don't know if it would react differently because of the clomid? I feel like I am just being extra cautious because I have never taken clomid before ya know. I am SO curious to see what reading I get tomorrow- CP is super high and has softened considerably over the course of the day- I wouldn't say it's open yet but definitely not closed either. I don't know why but I suddenly feel really positive about this month!

do you think you might have be estrogen dominant? Is that something that might explain your losses? The only reason it even crossed my mind that it's something I might have is because typically my O cramps are horrendous (knock on wood , while I have them today, they are not that bad- although I will be curious to see how it feels when we BD later- usually it is VERY sore/ uncomfortable for me during O time - it feels like my Insides are bruised).

I hope you see your temp rise tomorrow :) you will get to the TWW a few days ahead of me, but like I said I feel positive this cycle- this could *the* month for both of us!
