Any updates for you? What CD are you on? I'm on 19 and I could swear I haven't even O'ed yet!

You must have a special sense, today is day 21 and I went for my progesterone test this morning! Still haven't heard from my doctor yet, the waiting is brutal! I had 2 positive OPKs over the weekend and then DH got sick on Sunday so it put a damper on things in the DTD area! I will update once I get my result...fingers crossed!

Have you been doing OPKs? I hope this is the month for both of us!!

Update - my doctor called to let me know my progesterone was 26.6, which indicates a good ovulation! Now on to hoping for the BFP!

Woo hoo!!! Exciting!!!! Praying a BFP!!!!!

Well, I still don't know if/when I O'ed. I cannot tell???? Also, the past 2 times we DTD I bleed. Then it's all gone after I clean up. TMI sorry. Dont know what that's all about??? I took OPKs and they never were positive. But I have read people with PCOS shouldn't waste $$ on those because they are not accurate. That's my update.

When are you going to test??? Smile

Although it was great news, I felt like such a Debbie Downer when he called today. I am trying to stay relaxed and positive but it's tough! I agree about OPKs, they are wacky...at least with me! I had a slight bit of streaking/bleeding about a week ago, i am not sure if it has something to do with ovulation but it happeneded once and that was it, kinda weird! Let's hope for some great news this month!

Laurie! That sound promising!!!!! Can't wait for you to pee on something!!!!!

I'm out. That's for sure. I swear I'm having a period right now. I starting bleeding and cramping really really badly today. My doc said that bleeding is not normal and I probably had a bad reaction to the meds. So on the next cycle for me. A 21 day cycle for someone who had a 160 days cycle this year is just freaking laughable. My body sucks.

Oh man, how frustrating! On the bright side, at least you don't have to take the meds to start AF this time. My friend thinks its funny that I get excited from having a cycle less than 40 days! These fertility drugs sure do wacky things to our bodies! I feel like I am getting a sneak peak at menopause with the hot flashes from clomid!

So sorry to hear that. Sad Like Rachel said though, at the very least you know where you are now (CD1) and can focus on this new month. :bighug:

Laurie - YAY YAY YAY! on the good ovulation.. fingers crossed for you, my friend!! Smile

Still in the hoping stage! I am not totally sure when I O'd so I haven't tested yet....don't want to set myself up for disappointment but yet still trying to stay optimistic! Thanks for checking in!

I would be peeing on everything in sight at this point!!!!!!!!!!

I'm on day 7 today. Im going to take my last pills today. I switched myself to days 3-7 instead of 5-9. We shall see what happens. I opted out of the ultrasound this time. It's too stressful. I'd rather be blissfully unaware!

Nothing but bad news...tested this afternoon and negative. Tomorrow will be two weeks since my blood test and I O'd before that so I expect my period to start any time. Sad

Well, the wicked witch has arrived! I sent a message to my doctor to see if we can do another cycle of clomid. I wasn't all that surprised about this cycle since DH was sick when I had the positive OPK. Hopefully we get to try clomid one more time!

He gave me the green light to do another clomid cycle...here's hoping that the 6th time is a charm!

Where are you at in your cycle, Laurie? Gearing up for the BIG O!!?? Sure hope so!!

I'm so ready to test!!! I'm only 7dpo though. Ugh. Slowest. Week. Ever!!! But i have lots of symptoms. Sore sore bbs and very nauseous. I'm thinking I ate some food that didn't agree with me though. I think it's too early for nausea. Right? I woke up the past two days feeling like utter dodo! I also am usually really grumpy, and impatient a week before AF hits, but I'm actually feeling jolly and patient with my kids. I would be really surprised of I wasn't preggo this month. When was the soonest did you get a bfp? My birthday is Friday at 9dpo. I think that's way too early for a bfp.

CD 9 here...3 more days until the endless OPKs begin! If it doesnt happen this cycle, I have decided that this will be the end of the interventions. It has been a long road that has been such an emotional roller coaster for me! It has reaked havoc on my marriage, friendships, and just life in general. My doctor said the next step would be the fertility clinic with IUIs and injectables. Realistically with me not working, we would be in a tight situation of trying to pay for it and not have crazy debt. I am not sure I would deal with more disappointment very well at this point either. In some ways, the decision breaks my heart but I think it will be time for a break if we don't get it this cycle. I am so ready to enjoy intimacy again without any stress. I never would have imagined that sex could ever be so taxing and stressful. I am trying my best to stay positive and hope we get good news this cycle! Thanks for checking in on me! Smile

Can't wait until you can test! Sounds promising!

Laurie, I went through these exact same emotions when I was trying for Luke. It is a total roller coaster! I pray that this round works. If it doesn't, I pray you get pregnant naturally. Our insurance didn't cover the RE either. Luckily I only went there 1 month and got pregnant. But it still cost a lot for the visit and ultrasounds. I wish insurance covered all infertility treatments! Good luck this month!! I'll be checking on you!

I bought 4 Dtree tests today. Might start testing tomorrow. I hope I didn't waste $4!!! :-). I still feel like its going to be a yes this month. Hope I don't crash and burn!

Great big HUGE HUGS to you both! We had a hard time with the girls, and it really takes it toll on every aspect of your life. I hope this is the month for you both!

Thanks, Tara!!

I tested this morning! 9DPO, bfn. No birthday surprise for me! Still really early. I'll test again Sunday morning. But I think I usually don't get a bfp until after 12dpo. I'm just testing for fun and curiosity!
