I'll keep you company! I am on provera right now to induce a period and then i'll be on my 2nd round of clomid! 50mg was unsuccessful so bumping up to 100mg. I'm excited!

I just took my last provera pill last night. Now waiting impatiently for AF to come lol. Ugh I hate this part! Last time it was really confusing. My doctor wants me to take clomid on CD1-5 and I had a hard time deciding when CD1 was lmao. Hopefully it will be a bit clearer this time... -pokes uterus-

Lol! If we could just make our uterus & ovaries act right! They say count the first red blood day as cd 1. Not just the spotting. Come on AF! I'M CD6 today (taking it 3-7). Yesterday I got the worst hot flashes I've ever had. Hoping today is cooler.

Hi Ladies! Joining in- I took my last pill- CD7- tonight and now the waiting for O begins...Last month I took Clomid days 5-9 (as prescribed) but it made me O five days late and prolonged AF from showing up- causing me to POAS all the way to 16dpo. So, I went rogue this month and am hoping that it will result (in the least) my O date returning to normal. The only downside so far is that on days 5-9, I had no side effects, but now with days 3-7, I've had a ton :(

Yeah I usually spot for 2 days prior to AF (and 2 days after, lucky me) but last time it was REALLY light in the beginning and after I marked CD1 and took my first clomid pill, it slowed right down by the evening and I really wondered if it was CD1 or not LOL. The next day it was back to being AF-y so I just stopped stressing about it and accepted the previous day as CD1 :P

I'm sorry HH! Side effects are the worst :( Fingers crossed it will all be worth it though! That's what I keep telling myself anyway lol. Keep us updated on how you go this cycle! I didn't O at all on my first round and it was really disappointing seeing negative after negative opk's. I really hope I get to see a positive this time lol.

GRRR i'm sick of waiting already. So much waiting.

Hi Everyone! How's everybody doing? I'm so happy not to be taking a pill today and I don't know if it's the relief or what but I had almost no symptoms today :D I'm planning on starting with the OPK on CD10 since last cycle I didn't "o" until CD17 and because I went a lil OPK cray cray and took 20 out of the 25 tests...eheh...When are you guys going to start OPK? **Shaebaby, I hope you get your O this month!!! Wishing, praying, and FX for you! Are you being followed by an RE or an OBGYN?

Haha good luck! I go a bit OPK crazy too.. Thank goodness they're cheap on ebay lmao. Although this round i'm gonna buy a clearblue digital kit and just keep it in the cupboard, and if I get an inernet cheapie that looks positive i'll follow it up with a digi to confirm.

No monitoring for me yet other than day21 prog test. My doctor wants to keep it as relaxed for us as possible, but if I have to go higher than 100-150mg then i'll be doing ultrasounds etc just to make sure nothing is gonna go pear shaped. Fingers crossed this round will be it for all of us!

Still waiting on AF.. My boobs are crazy sore and I was cramping a bit the past couple of days so hopefully AF isn't far off......

Yay!! More buddies!! I'm so glad to be finished with pills too. They make me feel miserable. I'm starting OPKS on the 11th. I usually O on cd 14-16. I actually decided I like cd 3-7 better too. Dr said 5-9, but it was giving me O on cd 17-19.

Hi, Ladies! This is my first time posting to a board, not just stalking :). We have been ttc for 2+ years. No miscarriages. No issues on the husband's side. I have one blocked Fallopian tube, but the other is fine. I ovulate every month and have a pretty regular cycle (24-26 days) I am starting my first round of Clomid 50mg today (cd's 3-7)! Very anxious/excited/nervous! I am not being monitored so that is also causing some anxiety. Anyone else taking clomid that already ovulates on their own?

Hey Selby! I already ovulate on my own, but have a "weak" ovulation so Clomid extends my luteal phase and makes me a better egg. This is my 6th Clomid cycle total in 3 years. Hoping for my rainbow baby! I take guafensin (PLAIN) before O. It helps thin your cervical mucus as Clomid drys me up. Anyone getting near ovulation? Took an OPK today and will see if it darkens tomorrow. I'm expecting ovulation cd 13-15 somewhere. I'm so ready this cycle to get PREGNANT!

I will join! I did 100mg on CD 3-7 (Oct 10th to 14th) - first cycle.
I had 3 "juicy" follicles (yes, my RE said this!) and today they were confirmed to have popped.
I'm not sure if I even developed any eggs previous, or ovulated when I was trying to temp in previous cycles - I couldn't get my BBT to spike or have noticeable EWCM.

Fingers crossed for all of us!
