I hope it's a good sign! I never had any bleeding whatsoever when I got my BFP, so if I spot or anything then I know I'm out.
Another day of temp dip, hoping to get a + OPK today.
Andi, how's it going?

Well pretty sure I'm out girls. Temp dropped way down and there was some brown spotting when I wiped... I usually spot before AF comes.

I'm curious now if I should do another round of Clomid or take a break? Do you think you have better chances doing it back to back?

I would DEFINENTLY recommend doing it back to back. My ovulation has improved every month doing it these last four cycles. The first three cycles, i took a break in the middle because I had a light period, but I wish I wouldn't have. I'm sorry Andi. Stay with it! It WILL happen.

Flybutter- did you test yet? Your chart is still looking good!
Andi- are you getting monitored? I really wish that I'd been getting monitored this whole time. Call your Dr and request a cd21 progesterone test and ultrasound. I had no idea that I was ovulating until I started getting monitored. I get a cd 28 ultrasound to check my lining/cysts. It makes me not worry/stress as much.

Thanks for the support Tinley! Feeling kind of hopeless right now. I'm not getting monitored. She said she would monitor me on round 3 I believe?

I'm looking into acupuncture and/or a fertility massage? Heard anything about these??

Andi, you're not out until the witch is flowing!

I recommend back-to-back as well. I know it can be stressful though, so do what you feel is best for you. I would also request a CD21 blood draw next month and that way if it shows you're not O'ing then you can ask to have dosage bumped up.

I have some news that made me smile this morning, my doctor gave me my CD21 results and she thinks the 100 did make me ovulate! It was low, only 6.3, but last month on 50 it was only 1.8 and when I had my miscarriage at 8 weeks, it was only a 7 two weeks prior to that, so I think I just have low progesterone and should start taking the prometrium I have leftover from that, just in case. I have 2 FRER's, but am waiting a few more days to take one because I'm not confident they would show positive for me yet.

Lol well of course I couldn't wait and took one. I don't like the new curved frer's. A shadow of a line came up straight away, but I can't tell if it has color. Knowing me, I will use my other frer in the morning for comparison though lmao! I hope you get that O soon Tinley!

I HATE the new frer. I've been tricked twice now. I hope you see something tomorrow!
I STILL don't have a +OPK. CD 15 is the latest I've EVER had one and tomorrow is cd 16. I've got ewcm, I'm nauseous and flushed, and I feel pressure on my ovaries though. Gah! I'd love for my body to act right just freakin once.

Do OPK's usually work for you? They are complete garbage for me so I don't use them!

It's finally getting darker. I think it'll be + by 2pm. So I'll ovulate probably late Sunday night or Monday. They usually work, but this is late for me. I feel awful. This cycle sucks. Hope it's worth it.
