Ok...I couldn't wait any more. Negative. I'm still a few days before my period is due, so I'm not discouraged that I could still get my BFP. I decided to just go ahead. I'll test again if I don't start my period on Thursday, but at least this way I'm not going to have a surprise disappointment if AF shows up. I feel a little relieved!
I still have my fingers crossed! For all of us!

Still a change Lisa FX! Still holding out, the closer it gets the more I am getting scared about testing... Too scared to get a BFN again.

Hey ladies,

Lots of catching up to do.

Lisa – I am in Toronto, Ontario.

Ruby – I know how ironic life is. You spend your life trying your hardest to not get pregnant, you build this illusion that the minute you screw up you’ll end up pregnant so you think when you actually want to, it will be easy.
Ironically enough, when I was young with my ex, I did manage to miss out on 5-7 days of my BC and I ended up pregnant that same week. I did not keep it for all the right reasons but I figured after that fluke that when I was ready to, it would be a breeze for me. Here I am on cycle 8 and everyone I know my age is getting pregnant immediately and I’m far behind with no end in sight.

Tinley – How are you doing?

I’m done with Clomid on to injectables now. I prefer them more as I have had no side effects whatsoever. I’ve had to take them for 7 days now and back tomorrow to re-assess if I am done taking them. There is a shortage of Clomid in Canada so Clomid wasn’t even available to me anymore and since we are doing our second IUI I have heard that with injectables the chances are significantly higher.

What CD is everyone on? I’m on CD 9 so waiting for everything to happen at this point but all the appointments have kept me busy.

Pretty sure I was right about being annovulatory, temp dropped & I see spotting. But, I get to start over with my vitex faster. That's good news. Good luck to everyone who's testing soon!

Hi Ladies. Well for the last 3 days I have had what I can only describe as morning sickness (but lasting till about 4pm) which has been getting increasing worse along with hot flushes, pains in my bbs, headaches (which come and go at the same time like clockwork for the last two days) and extreme tiredness. Struggerling to fuction I feel so bad! But thought this must be my month and these symptoms will all be worth it... Thought if I am having symptoms it must be later enough to take a test so went to the shop at lunch just did it.... Very BFN not even an evap line :-(. Had to keep it in while I finished work and then cried like a baby all the way home.

OMG I had a great U/S 3 follies --> 2 on the right 18 & 13 and 1 on the left 13! I will trigger tomorrow and then IUI is scheduled for 11am Friday, then I'm gone for a week and pregnancy test on 1/28!!! I totally though that I was put this cycle as I didn't feel anything and lone and behold I'm triggering CD13 not like my normal CD18! I'm hoping this isn't too good to be true.

RUBY!! Don't cry yet. We are cycle buddies, remember? I'm not counting this month out until AF appears...so you don't get to either!
We are now on CD27. If you O'ed on the 2nd like the nurse thought, then you wouldn't have implanted until the end of last week. It's still too early, sister!

I'm here for you!! BTW, did you get my PM I sent last week?

I am currently 6 dpo...CD 41...took Clomid twice this cycle.

Question for you girls...I thought that after ovulation you were supposed to dry up down there! I actually bust out the pads as the panty liner didn't cut it. Since I haven't ovulated in so many months maybe this is my norm?

Thank you Lisa! I know it could have been too early and no sign of AF yet. Normally get spotting a few days before it is due but so far nothing. Think the daily sickness is really getting to me. Feeling sick again today but did take a migraine tablet this morning (ok'd for use during pregnancy) which has an anti sickness drug in it which is helping a little but still really tired even after 11 hours sleep last night :-(... not the best for me to be strong emotionally. Not going to test again until after AF is due if it doesn't arrive... FX she stays away for good reasons for both of us! Should have replied to your PM now... sorry didn't even realize you could get them :-).

Cuphalfful... I have had the same since about 6DPO, not as much as you by the sounds of it but still more than normal. My DH even commented on it the other night.

FX for you ALLready4theBUMP!

AllReady...that's awesome news!
SGrumbling...waiting waiting waiting...isn't that just how it always is?
Cup...if I've learned anything about this process is that what is normal for one person or 1 cycle may not exactly be normal for another. My biggest problem is making my symptom into whatever I want it to be because SOMEONE out there had that, too.

as for me...I had spotting this morning...so I'm not feeling too positive anymore. The thing is, it wasn't NORMAL (see above). **Gross alert** Usually I have a sudden gush of blood to start my period. This time it was more like a few brownish clots...or just old blood mixed with thicker CM. So like I said, I start thinking things like, "could it be that this isn't really AF? Perhaps it's like some other women I've read about that spot in early pregnancy, or throughout their pregnancy?" Somehow I prefer to take even the least likely scenario and cling to it. Glass Half Full, right?
Ugh.

Ruby, keep us posted. Stay away AF!!!

Ruby – I’m sorry about the BFN, please don’t lose hope. I know how heartbreaking it is and you are allowed to cry. Not getting a BFP is like losing a baby you could have had each month and the hopes of one, it’s normal to experience grief. Just let out whatever you can and then look forward and have hope in the next chance you get.

Cup – it would be the Clomid that is giving you lots of CM. The first month I took it, I had an insane amount of CM and I usually have very little. I would be walking and could feel it coming out…TMI but it’s true.

Sgrumbling – we are cycle buddies, I’m on CD10! Let’s cross our fingers!

Tinley – how are you?

Lisa – I truly hope it’s a good sign for you. :noaf:

AFM – follie check, after moving over to Gonal F, 9 days of injections = 1 frikken follie, that’s it. It was so disappointing having to even bother triggering or doing an IUI with one measly follie. We have to decide what to do at this point.
