Well Kelley-Sorry for the MS...you should be out of the clear very soon when you hit 12 weeks....I sure hope it's because of HCG...I was thinking that but if I did indeed O, then it must of happened just happened a few days ago and therefore, would be too early right? Hell, what if that first OPK that had us stumped was it? That was like a week and a half ago! lol I also get worried that my progestrone is low because I don't have sore boobs like I always get but then again, It could be too early. I will start testing at the end of the week with my 10mIU/ml IC! IF I had to guess...I'm thinking 3 or 4dpo.

Morning Ladies! Ok so my temps are still low...and just to rule out anything, I tested with one of my IC 10 mIU/ml tests this morning, negative. So that rules out any O happeneing over a week ago. So next is if I did O, i'm around 4dpo but because of my temps, I am thinking I am STILL waiting to O! It is sooooo frustrating. I have a dilema now, if it doesn't happen by the end of the week, do I go to the doc and bring on AF or do I keep waiting it out? I know I O on my own, prior to clomid, every other month. I have had cycles where I had no period for like 6 months but somehow my old doc fixed that. That was a few years ago. I am now worried I am all screwed up. I'd just hate to bring on AF if I am close to O'ing. What to do?

tila, I'm thinking I would go through with IUI as my RE suggests. Wasting time is frustrating and emotionally draining. Jen (one of the previous girls on here) got preggos on her second IUI.

Kelley, excited about your appt on Friday!!! Are you doing Lovenox by yourself now? Sorry about nausea. I finally went out and bought some sea bands..I do think they helped when driving to Oklahoma this weekend.

smkr, I would call your doc if you get to cd40 and no period and BFN. The cycle I took a break from CLomid I did not O (or at least I never got a postive OPK) and I did not get AF until cd38. I was pissed! Just my advice from personal experience. It is very frustrating, sorry you are having to go through it. Maybe you could ask him to check your progesterone level etc with next cycle. I do think that one OPK of yours was positive so there is still a chance for a BFP, but it will show up before cd40 :).

Maggie, how are you friend???

Tiff-Thanks for the input! I will do that....I also keep thinking that was a postive OPK and I KNOW I felt some twinges by my right ovary for like 2 days that only lasted a few minutes. I will wait til then and then have my doc check my ovaries and see if there is anything going on or if my body is trying to O and can't to see what they can do. I'm probably going to go out and buy the digi OPK today and just try those this week, starting today just because I can't help myself and keep on this damn debate if I O'd or not yet. It will probably be a waste of money. Glad you had a good trip it seems! BTW I am CD30 today.

tila...YAY on IUI!!!! That is AWESOME!!! I think all nerves and everything will go away once it is over. I think it is just like Clomid...it is much worse in our thoughts then when we take it.

smkr, I agree with tila. I ALWAYS used the smiley face kind. I can't stand that other kind...then there is no doubt :). Good luck.

SMKR- I agree, buy the digi! Expensive, but worth it, there is no questioning the results! :)

Tila- Congrats!! It's always exciting to move forward in the process, getting closer to a BFP!

Damn, SMKR, your opks are confusing the heck out of me! I agree, try the digis, that was my next step when I got my surprise BFP.

Maggie, how are ya, hun? Praying you're feeling better.

Tila, I think that IUI is the right move.

Well I went to Publix,CVS and Walgreens by my house and they had none left! I couldn't believe it! So I got PO'd and just said screw it, guess its not meant to be. I am also at the point that I am thinking about not TTC for a few months. It is so hard to say but I am truly thinking that. I will cancel my insurance if I do decide that since I am paying extra for the maternity package. Reason I say all this, I don't want two birthdays in the same month so I already have to skip June/July. May is my last option here. Then I just found out that we may be planning another trip and I don't think I want to be preg during a trip. So my next time to really try is August and on. Then I go back to thinking I still have time and maybe being preg on a trip won't be that bad...the trip will be July/August. Then again, it is not a mandatory trip that couldn't wait until after the baby. See here I go again, I am inpatient! I don't want to wait.... I will be in pure thinking mode the next few days.

Tila-Yay on the IUI :)
