Hi Ruby. I'm also in the UK. Are you docs monitoring you on the clomid or are they just assuming it's working? My NHS docs did day 21 prog until it worked once and have left me to my own devices since then and not sure if I should be challenging them when we have our f/u appointment at the end of the month (cycle 4 of clomid)

It sounds like i'm in a similar boat to you with Clomid then IVF if that doesn't work. It really sounds ilke you're getting your head around it all and I'm very impressed indeed. It's not being negative at all, it's just putting a different spin on it x As others have said, it's not over until AF comes so don't lose hope yet.

I wish having even ONE round of IVF were free here! It's super expensive from the get go. :(
Unfortunately, I don't think we could afford it right now.

Thanks for the little boost Tinley. It's so hard to stay positive but we will all have our little miracles one day and when we do we will be that much more excited! I wish ivf weren't so expensive either! I'd do it right now!

I got what I think to be a positive opk so I'm going to count tomorrow as 1dpo for me and officially start the tww. I hope my husband and I have been able to get in enough bd and I really hope my day 21 progesterone check confirms ovulation. My boobs don't hurt at all and they always do so its a little confusing but I'm going to try and not worry so much about regular symptoms and just go with the flow. There's always next month.

Thanks Tinley, I'll be looking for the new thread! It's great to know you're feeling so optimistic about this cycle!! That makes me feel a little less bummed that I think I'm out right now. Maybe next cycle will be the one for me!

TUA - no don't think we get that option over here. Maybe if you were to go private but not really looked. Going to follow the standard NHS path until it runs out and then look at what my options are privately... We have enough saved to do another round of IVF if the free one doesn't work... So FX!

Bignetty - no I am the same as you, I got monitored for the first round and as everything checked out ok I'm now on my own. They only gave me a three month supply of clomid and I am currently on my second. Due to see Doc, second week in March so going to asked him if my forth round can be monitored, but don't know if they will agree. I don't know if I've got my head around it or just becoming numb from all the disapointment, but we are so lucky to be able to get this on th NHS and I am sure one day it will be our turn!

Thought spotting had stopped this afternoon but now getting cramps and I think it's starting again. Oh well on to my next cycle!

See you all on the new chain

Ruby, I didn't realize that! It might be better, as IVF has a higher success rate than a IUI as far as I know!

Hi there,
I am new to this site and to posting, in general.

I have finished my femara this month, first month on it! 10 mg days 3-7, and will do the progesterone suppositories post-ovulation. I do ovulate naturally, but we are doing super ovulation because I am over 40. I tried Clomid and got pregnant with our 2.3 yr. old son, on the 3rd cycle. The BFP test showed negative, but I did not get AF, so I tested again a week later and it was positive. I had 2 MC prior and 2 MC since, all MC pregnancies were natural conception, no meds. Clomid made me crazy and depressed, so I am not taking it again, ever! It is out of stock anyway. The femara does not do that! The only side effect I have is a headache and hunger.

I do not chart. I do do the cheap OPK, this month, and did the expensive one last month.

I am just happy to be a part of this group and know others are in the same boat, although I am the oldest, I guess.
We have 4 kids, a 21 yr. old son, I had at 21, 2 adopted girls, and our 2 yr. old Clomid Baby boy! We would like him to have a close-in-age sibling!

Have faith Ladies! I gave birth 19 years apart! You all seem young and have years ahead of you, so although it is very hard to want something so bad and have to wait, you will understand it all when you finally do conceive and then go on to hold your babe! That baby was the one that was meant to be, so keep the faith!
