I'll be starting Clomid on days 5-9 once AF starts and that will put my due date in late October early November if I am to conceive. Praying and hoping it works out! It will be my first cycle on Clomid. I'm also combining it with Metformin, evening primrose oil and baby aspirin.

Welcome JZ!! It always seems strange to tell someone that I hope their AF comes soon when we are all spending so much time hoping she stays away! When I had my mmc in June, it took me a few months to get a period. I was so bummed when everyone else seemed to get theirs right away. THEN my doc told me to wait to try until 2 cycles passed so I could build up a thick lining after my D&C. Waiting about 5 months to even TRY to get pregnant was AGONIZING! I hope yours comes SUPER SOON and you can start trying again!!

I already told Ruby, but AF came for me with a vengeance this morning. I'm officially out for this cycle. I'll start my next round of Clomid in a few days. (I'm 5-9). That puts my new EDD at Oct 23 if we conceive this cycle.

A friend of mine just had her baby yesterday. She had 2 M/C after 1 successful birth and was on progesterone shots until week 36 this time. Holding her newborn did NOT help my baby fever!

Ruby, I have my fingers crossed for you!

Thanks Ruby!
Lisa, I can't wait for AF to get here! My cycles are super long but my doctor thinks that I will start sometime next week (doubtful). If I don't he will prescribe provera and then I'll have to wait another 10-15 days to get AF and to start Clomid. Seeing, let alone holding, newborns just makes my heart sink. I hope you get your BFP this month and I pray it sticks and that the next newborn you get to hold will be your own. :)

Oh man talk about baby fever. I'm a nanny, and the kids are just so grown now! The youngest is 3, and I started when he was 4 months. I am surrounded by babies 7 days a week between school functions and story time. and on the weekends, I host children's birthday parties at a gymnastics center and indoor playground. I see at least 10 baby bumps and 20 babies every weekend.

I'm on night 3 of Femara, (cd 6) and I am planning on making an appointment for acupuncture next week. My employer bought me a gift card for 2 sessions of acupuncture for the holidays, bc she heard it could be beneficial for ovulation and TTC with pcos. Anyone here ever try it?

Welcome JZ and TUA!!

Nothing new to report with me. I am still waiting to O and hubby is still out of town until next wed. Hopefully it doesn't happen until after he comes back.. and I think it will so I am still hopeful!

I know what you all mean by the baby fever and seeing babies and bellies everywhere. My best friend just told me that she thinks that she might be pregnant with her second. I started TTC before she did.. Her baby is 7 months old and she got pregnant the first month trying with her 1st... It is just hard sometimes. Just glad that I have you ladies to talk with! :)

Sgrumbling, I hope ovulation holds off for you!!

Last night was my 3rd Femara, (cd 7 today) and I'm a bit worried about something... My dr. Told me to start with clear blue digi opk on cd 10 but I've already started testing with a cheapie opk on cd6, just to see what it would look like, and this morning my 2nd line is already getting much darker and almost as dark as the control line. I really hope ovulation doesn't happen too early, and my cheapie opk stays the way it is until I'm all finished with the Femara and the drug is out of my system! I have heard some scary things about conceiving while taking Femara. Do you all think I should start testing with clear blue digi opk tomorrow (cd8)? Or just wait until day 10 like my dr. Suggested?

I still didn't ovulate until late with clomid, so I don't have much advice Tua.
Didn't realize until I looked it up but the ICs that I bought are not super sensitive, so I gused I'll probably just keep testing until AF comes. Since I haven't had a regular cycle in so long I don't even know how long my LP is or wh2n to expect AF!

TUA I think you should probably wait. You are probably getting those results because the meds still being in your system. Good luck!!

Thanks for the welcomes everyone! Being a nanny must be so hard. I have one nephew that's 1 1/2 and every time I'm around him I can't wait to have my own kids. I wish I had more experience with opks to offer more suggestion TUA. Still waiting on AF. Hopefully she'll be here soon.
