2ww - waiting to test!

So who's already here? When do you plan on POAS? Has anyone got a BFP yet?

Think i'm here, no temping and only approximates on opks, but pretty sure I have O'd, I generally do on cd 16. No plans to test unless af doesn't show, theres no point really they are alwqays negative and if positibe they are faint and gone within a day or so.

I'm here! RE says I have o'd, but I really don't know when. My ultrasound on Saturday indicated that ovulation was either imminent or happening at that moment, but then he didn't recall me to confirm until yesterday (but I wasn't able to go until today). My temp didn't spike until either yesterday or today - this month's chart is WONKY.

Anyone else on Clomid have weird temps? Mine were elevated just after taking it, then plummetted for a few days. It spiked yesterday, but not above the post clomid temps. so, I'm not really sure when I o'd! (and I never got a +OPK).

On the plus side, we DTD 5 days out of 7, so that in combination with the Clomid MUST give us a good shot, right?!

Good luck all! Sorry I don't temp (yet) so I can't help you with the clomid and temping question. I got a positive opk on Monday morning at 10 am! We had dtd the day before so we did again that day and then yesterday (as well as 3-4 other times the week before). I'm soooooo hoping! Do you all keep testing after your first positive opk? How long do yours stay positive?

Id like to say I'll wait to test till 10 dpo (assuming with my pos opk mon I ovulated yesterday) but I'm weak and have wondfo cheapies so it'll probably be more like 7 dpo!

Well, pretty sure I'm here now and about 1DPO. Two days of peak fertility on my monitor, and two days of positive OPKs and then last night negative OPKs and this morning my monitor is no longer at peak.

My temps are a bit all over the place this month, but I think that's because I took soy isoflavones and they caused unusually high temps in the first part of my cycle. I'm pretty sure I Od either yesterday or during the night before going by cramping and twinging pains and how I felt. I've never Od that early before so here's hoping it's a nice strong egg! LOL

Hiya girls

Going on the amazing +opk today and the horrendous pain in my left ovary I am guessing I am oing today.
Going to go for it tomorrow and Sunday.
Will see how I get on this cycle and maybe book to see my doc if af shows about the ovulation pain.
It really is bad.
Hopefully I won't have to... But!!!

Good luck ladies!!!

Me too!!
I reckon it might be a cyst.
I had one when I was preggers with Ed... Caused bleeding at 6 weeks...
Hoping it's nothing sinister.
It's okay now... But it went on for about 4 hours!!!

How's everyone doing? Anyone close to POAS? I'm 6 DPO according to FF but I'm thinking in reality I'm 7-8 DPO. I'll wait until Saturday I think. I'm so anxious about the disappointment, I am not looking forward to testing.

Aw Wendy, maybe you'll get a surprise then! In my last few pregnancies, every time I was convinced I was out I got a BFP.

I'm feeling really positive this month, so I'm guessing that means I'm going to be out too. :/ Should know in a few days as it's a blinking miracle if my LP is longer than 10DPO.

Thanks Ladies!!

I'm on the fence about next month. I already have Dd & DH's birthdays & Christmas. My due date would be 5 days after DD's birthday. December is already a crazy month for us. I guess if it happens it happens.

Can't wait to see some BFP's from the group!!

I have always been conflicted about trying if it would give a December baby, I have just given in and said what will be will be, but two birthdays and Christmas would really get you thinking.

With my first 2 we decided against a December-January baby because of the chaos of Christmas and a ridiculous number of birthdays Dec 24-Jan8 (6 with us and my SILs family). However, my 2 girls were supposed to be 2 months apart and are only a week apart so now I figure you can only plan so much and what will be will be.

We've moved into the not trying-not preventing category. Although I'm temping I missed a few days around O time because of sickness and a few unexpected early mornings. I'm somewhere 8-11 dpo. Timing was not great as a result of sickness so I'm not expecting anything this time.

Guess since we are only actively trying till April since I don't wanna be newly pregnant when the Army moves us to Alaska in June-July. Yea I guess if it happens we will learn to deal and make the best of it.

Looks like af is arriving early. Perhaps a blessing in disguise as if it had arrived on time iui would likely be out because I would have only been about 13dpo on the Friday, which for me is too early as my follies aren't usually ready by then. I am double checking tomorrow but I think I am doubling my dose of clomid this month so hopefully that works for us, and fingers crossed hubby has a half day on iui day and we can do a fresh cycle

I'm in shock... I think I may have just had a faint BFP at 7DPO. :jawdrop:

I don't quite believe it if I'm honest, I was sure last night AF was coming early as my stomach was cramping so badly. Will believe it if it's darker tomorrow maybe.

I've started feeling back cramps. Not a good sign. Even with drugs we can't get pg - frustrating since we have 2 kids already...and didn't need any help with them. Anyways, if AF starts we will be taking a month off. I'm trying to stay optimistic but my gut is telling me it's over for this cycle.

No af this morning, so looking at iui maybe not going ahead again unless the double dose of clomid really speeds things up.

Julie I know how you feel, evenwith meds and actual more intrusive intervention i'm not getting pregnant yet I conceived first month with ds.

Thanks ladies. I know that I'm not the only going through these frustrations and that it's been much less time for me than others, so I really appreciate the support you give me when I vent!

I have not tested yet. I know that I'm not 100% out until AF shows. My heart wants to stay optimistic but my brain is being pessimistic. I'll test in the morning.

Congrats ladies with the BFPs!!!

No af today so bonus is it's looking to be a decent lp this month. It will throw my iui date out though which sucks. Not sure how to remedy that. Right now I can smell what smells like hamburgers and onion and just the wholeput tyogether proper hamburger smell and it is making me hungry and I am cravikng one now.

Still stuck in limbo here. Did a FRER this morning despite only being 8-9DPO and IF there's a second line it's so, so faint. I showed it to DH and he said he could MAYBE see the beginnings of the faintest line. I don't know... Guess we'll just have to wait and see! LOL

Had a BFN this morning. It's technically still early (11-13 DPO), but the cramps + BFN = not a good sign.

For the clomid ladies, are AF cramps worse with clomid? So far things seem intense - I mean, I'm still 2-4 days away from AF beginning and feeling a fair amount.

I hope this is still it Julie! This was my first cycle on Clomid and I had more cramping and ovulation pain than any other month.

Hi Ladies - I'm officially in my 2ww!! Today was my 6th IUI Smile I'm hoping this cycles works! I had laparoscopy, HSG, and other testing in February, and everything came back good! Nothing wrong! (yet I'm still not getting pregnant!!!) anyway - I've read how many women get pregnant the first or second month after HSG, so hoping it works for me too!! Also, this was the first cycle that I had more than one follicle! But I'm nervous b/c the doc decided to give me the trigger shot when my follicles were only 16 mm each...
Also this cycle doc wants to give me two HCG booster shots - one at 6 DPIUI, and another 9 DPIUI, which does delays testing Sad so now my usually 2 WW will turn into 2 and half weeks....

I'm driving myself crazy. I fully expected AF today but nothing. Fewer cramps than yesterday and the day before but they are still there. I'm contemplating POAS again tomorrow but mainly feel like what's the point. Had a bfn on Friday, odds are it was accurate and I o'd a day later than I thought. But I won't give up hope until I see red.
