First Clomid Cycle Buddy? - Dec. 29 -CD4

Postby AndiA108 » Tue Dec 29, 2015 7:05 am

I know it's early to start a tww group but was hoping to have a buddy that is going through their first round of clomid as well. I'm on CD 4 and took my first one last night. I have irregular cycles so I ovulate anywhere from CD 12-20. Would love to have someone to talk to through all this.

Been trying for over a year.

Hi,
Here's me ;)
31yrs old, been TTC for 15 months, tried natural IUI cycle last month (no trigger / no fertility drugs) - BFN, had HSG done last cycle.

This is my first cycle with clomid, 50mg, started cd6 (mon Dec 28) in the pm. I have appt this Monday cd 13 with doc to check on follicles / progress. If all looks good will proceed with HCG trigger and IUI.

Hoping for a miracle ;). Haven't felt any symptoms yet from clomid, maybe a little bloated, but I think I'm sleeping through any.

We shall see ;)

I'm on Day 12. I took clomid days 5-9 and waiting to O this week or early next week. Then we will do the iui. It's our first cycle iui w/clomid. We have been ttc for 6 years.

Also hoping for a miracle. It's been too many years without the second line.

Hey girls! I'm on CD 11. My opks got a little darker today but no positives yet. I barely ever have any cm, and have been noticing a lot more so hopefully this is a good sign!

I was so surprised I didn't feel any symptoms on clomid! Well ok, maybe just night sweats but what a relief!

FX for all of us! Are you guys temping?

More cm is usually a sign that O is coming. What test do you use for opk?

I don't temp anymore. I did for a while but now I just use the opks.

Andi, I am also on CD11 after 100mg clomid CD2-6, but this is not my first cycle with clomid. Still nice to have someone to go to the TWW with. Almost there! I am having no symptoms other than increased CM, but hoping to get those O pains soon! They said I didn't ovulate last month on 50, but I did in July so am hoping I will now on a higher dose! I have a good feeling about this month, but we are trying to just take it easy.

Exciting flybutter! Today my CM isn't noticeably there and my opk barely showed! I had a chart spike so wondering if it's possible I ovulated. I guess only time will tell if my temps stay up. Dang irregular cycles. I am feeling really hopeful for this month or soon! FX for us!

Hi girls. Wow it looks like we are all very close in cycles. I use the clearblue as requested by the doc. It was negative today. But I felt some o pains last night. So I think O is around the corner.

Andi - It sounds like you ovulated. Keep temping and keep us posted.
flybutter - Looks like O is around the corner for you too.

I think all of us are feeling hopeful this month. Wouldn't be it great if this is our month?

FX for us!

That would be great! Still no positive on an opk for me. I think I might ovulate in a few days though. Got more fertile cm today and starting to feel some pains. Really trying to not stress this cycle. I've been doing yoga and working out.

I don't trust OPK's! They have done me dirty in the past, lmao!

I think I O'ed last night which was one week since finishing clomid. We were in bed (actually about to DTD) when I started having intense cramping on my left side. So we waited twenty minutes and BD. No cramps today so hopefully that is what it was, also had the EWCM.

I have been throwing on a few temps to my chart here and there, but they are by no means accurate since they are all from different times!

Hope everyone else is doing well and BD'ing like mad women!

haha! Well I got a positive OPK today and def lots of watery cm. So yay!! I had a nice massage today and going out to dinner. Ready to BD ;).

Have you all been getting headaches? I'm getting the worst headaches the last few days. Curious if it's related to clomid. Thankfully today I finally got a break from them!

Can I join in ladies? I start my first 100mg cycle on Tuesday. Last cycle I had a cd 21 progesterone test and a lining check on cd 28. My progesterone was a 34, so I did ovulate, but I've been through 6 cycles of 50 mg so it's on to something better! I got horrible headaches the first 2 cycles, then it got better after that. I had ewcm the last two cycles right before O. It was weird!

Oh course you can join! I'm about to O and got EWCM today too. Previous cycles I hardly noticed any, so I'm not really up on the norm for cm. But this time I had a lot of watery, which I read is good and today EWCM. I guess it's a good sign! I also got a weird dip at cd 10/11. I did wake up cold that day, so hoping that's what it is. My other temps are the steady they've ever been! Usually my chart is rock city.

My headaches have stopped, so thank goodness!
