I only have part of a chart unfortunately as my thermometer went Kaput and haven't been anywhere they sells them to get a new one.

Got an answer early one while I was out and took it at 6. Negative. I know it's early and it wasn't fmu, and I'll keep testing, but I think it won't be this month. And that is totally fine. I am just thrilled the clomid worked, and that I have two more monthly sets of the provera and clomid :)
And happy that I will expect all these symptoms next month when I O so that I don't get soooo excited lol
How are you ladies doing?? :)
Aww, sorry about the BFN. :( But...it might just be too early so I am gonna keep holding out hope for you hun and pray that your BFP is on it's way! :D
Here is this morning's test. 11 dpo, fmu
How are you doing post O? :)
And how was everyone's new years eve?
Happy New Year Ladies!!
Susan, sorry u got a BFN, but like Michelle said - I pray that its just too early and your BFP is right around the corner!!
I'm done clomid! Starting to get watery cm, hope it leads to ewcm.. I didn't temp this morning of course.. Was drinking last night didn't go to bed till like almost 5am, plus I didn't sleep at home.. DH and I stayed at my BFF's house.. No drinking and driving for us!!
Hope you all had a good New Years! Next up, my b-day Sunday!
OH bummer. Lousy morning.
Just talked with my dr office. My bloodwork came back, and my progesterone is 2.7. He says that's too low to have ovulated. I'm so bummed out.
I don't understand, my chart looks SOOO great. And I had all those symptoms that are not what I would normally have with my normal annovulatory cycles. I'm very upset. I was so sure this was helping me and that my chart said I ovulated. I even got the def pos opk. The doctor said to try for another month and see if it does next time.
How could my chart have such nice spikes and not have ovulated? Does it ever work at the same dose the second month, when it didn't work the first? Why wouldn't he want to increase my dosage if it's not working?
How is that even possible?? You have a temp spike and a + opk??? See, it's the things like that that drives ttc women insane! I really hope he's wrong! When did you do the blood test?? What if you O'd on CD 20 instead??
Also, ask him to increase the dosage.. He shouldn't say no if 50 doesn't work..
I said that maybe I had O'd the night before the test. He didn't seem to think it would matter. My chart looks crazy great. I don't understand. He wouldn't even look at the chart. Said if the blood test says no, the chart doesn't matter. So frustrated this morning!
I'm going to test tomorrow morning anyway. At the very least I have to be sure of the neg before I start my progesterone to bring on the next cycle.
I know it's crazy to not do what the doc says, but I have enough clomid, I'm sooooo tempted to take the 100mg each night instead of the 50 when the right days come along next.
Yea, it is confusing/frustrating. He gave you 3 months in advance?? At least you have that option.. I have to wait month after month for them to send it to the pharmacy.
I would definitely test again and I pray to God that your test is positive so you can shove in his face and say I told you.. Good Luck!!
I couldn't resist. I had to have more questions answered, so I called back to talk with them again. They say that sometimes temping is just 'off' and there is no rhyme or reason as to why my chart is so good when I didn't O. And they don't want to do any blood testing or anything next month. And I need to just 'calm down' because me being so worried about it is going to be a whole other problem. If we add blood testing or monitoring next month, it will just make that 'emotional piece' too stressful for me and be counterproductive. I should just relax through the next three months on the fifty, working or not, and hopefully I will be pregnant.
This makes me mad. I was over analyzing and being annoying. But I was NOT worrying and I was NOT stressed over a blood test. I was super happy that we were moving forward actually. For him to say it's not working, but it's MY fault for stressing, and we are going to keep trying this thing that's not working??
Seriously? Are doctors supposed to do that? I feel so brushed off. Am I wrong to feel upset? Honest opinions, really.
I have given this alot of thought today. I'm upset enough that he won't listen or answer my questions about my obvious temp shift. Or at the very least re-test my blood now and see if it did increase after CD21 am (which would be the day after ovulation according to my chart). I REALLY feel that I ovulated on CD20. So.
I am going to give this one more month with him. If I am just as unhappy next month, I'm going back to my md and getting another referral to a different doctor. I can't go to someone I don't trust, or someone who doesn't feel my questions and charts are valid. I'm really disappointed with him. I thought he was so good that first appointment.
So. Now the question is, do I try the 50 again and assume I ovulated late so the blood test didn't catch it? Or do I take the 50 again just in case? Or should I pop the extras with huge hopes?? *sigh* what a bummer day. I hate these ups and downs!!
