Still CD 10
I made up for not working out yesturday.
I did 20 minutes pilates and 45 minutes yoga. BUT I had pasta at lunch today. Welcome to carb city!! But I do not have breakfast and I will eat low carb for dinner.
I forgot to weight myself this morning. I hope the pasta does not hurt my weight tomorrow!!
Posted: 2003-03-07 10:43
The BD fest started last night!!! The weekend is here so it will be a great time to get a lot of BDing done!!!
The pasta did not hurt my weight!! YAY!!

The babymed chart finally took off the CD 7 O thing. So now I am waiting to see the next one.
We did not BD Friday but we did Thurs. and Sat. I told DH for the next week I want to everyday. We will see how he does with that pressure. He is already fussing at my for making a schedule but since we are paying for thre Clomid we need to make the most of it.
Did not work out today but I will tomorrow. I have had a horrible sinus headache all day.
Posted: 2003-03-10 07:37
We did not BD last night but we have everyother day. This week needs to be everyday!! I have told him that so he knows what is in store for him. Last month I O'ed on CD 17 so I hope this month will be the same. That means that the next few days are vert important!!
I also did not workout yesturday but I planted flowers and trimmed a lot if old plants in the yard so I did a lot of bending and stretching. I guess that is better than nothing!
Posted: 2003-03-11 17:09
Well we did BD last night and I would like to again tonight. I would like to every day till my chart says that I O'ed. I think getting him to BD will be hard tonight. He is still stressed from work...the same crap that he was dealing with last month. It really made it hard to BD last month and so this month he is really trying!
I have been working out almost everyday!! I love the pilates videos!! I had flatlined in my weight loss and this week I finally dropped a pound!! YAY ME!!!
Posted: 2003-03-12 12:02
Well I guess this whole cycle will be BDing every other day. I wanted to BD everyday this week but Dh had other plans..too tired, not feeling well. But every other day will be ok I hope.
The chart has not showed my O day yet so the BD fest will keep going!!
Posted: 2003-03-13 17:19
My chart still does not show my O day. Last month it was on CD 17 so I hope it will be in the next few days. Again this month no O cramping. Oh well!!! We have been doing very well at BDing every other day!! Just a few more days to go!!!
My knee was sore yesturday so I did not workout. But I picked it back up today!! I have been doing so much pilates that I have not been on thetreadmill. Maybe that will be tomorrow!!
Posted: 2003-03-14 14:00
Still no O day on my chart. I am so mad at myself for not using the OPK's this month!!! My temp is higher this month than last month. I have not dropped under 97.0. If it does not work this month, I will use them next month!!!
I dont know why I am freaking out..I am only 1 day off from last month. My temp did rise today so if it rises again tomorrow, it should show that I O'ed. I hope!!
Posted: 2003-03-15 18:39
Still no O day on my chart yet. We did not get to BD last night so that makes 2 days in a row. But We did this morning and I expect to tomorrow as well. I think I probably have O'ed but since my tepms are high, it is not registering a spike. U am just confised becoause my temps normally go so low!! It is so hard to figure my body out!!
I worked out today a little. I did 20 mnutes of pilates...not that much but the ACC tournament was on. GO NC STATE!!!!
And UNCW will be in the NCAA again this year!!! YAY!!! I will be hanging my Seahawk flag out next week!!!
Posted: 2003-03-16 09:11
Well my temp shot up to 98.1 so it finally found my O day!!! CD 17 just like last month. This Clomid is great stuff!! Now I just have to wait and hope that we BD'ed enough!!!
PLEASE PLEASE LET THIS BE MY MONTH!!!!!
I am close to selling my soul to Clomid and promising to name my first born Clomid if it will work this time!!
Posted: 2003-03-17 19:41
Nothing new to say...just in the 2WW. I really want this to be my month. I get more and more stressed each month. I think DH is too.
I have worked out Sunday and Monday. Today was 20 minutes pilates and 45 minutes yoga.I hope to workout everyday this week.
Posted: 2003-03-18 17:41
Well my preg.org chart says I O'ed on CD 20. Babymed says CD 17. So who knows.
I am a little confused though. Last month babmyed said I O'ed on CD 17, then AF came on CD 27. That is only 10 DPO. Is that possible? Maybe it calculated my O day wrong?? I am so confused now. I don't know when to test this month.
My weight was up today 2 lbs and it always goes up before AF comes so this may not be my month. Wait...I am crazy....it is too early to give up. Shame on me! AAAGGGHHHHH!!!! Why does this have to be so hard????
Posted: 2003-03-20 17:04
I have been so busy getting the house ready for the hardwood. I am tired of using a hammer and prybar. I mushed my finger last night Dh has not been able to help yet. Since he had to go out with his friends last night for the NCAA picks, I was stuck starting it. And since I get home way before him, I have been doing it again today. My hands are sore.
Since I have been so busy I have not been able to think much about testing this month. My weight went back down so maybe Af is not on her way. My boobs are starting to get a little sore but that could be AF. And the NCAA has started so that had kept me busy as well!! My temp shot up this morning for some reason! But I am not reading too much into it. I just don't feel that this will be my month. Not sure why just a gut feeling.
Posted: 2003-03-22 09:27
My temp is still up. We will see I guess. My boobs are still sore but that coud be AF.
Posted: 2003-03-24 09:18
My temp took a little dip this morning. If it does not fall tomorrow, I will test in the AM. But I really think it will fall and that this is not our month.
Posted: 2003-03-25 09:11
My temp did go up a point but I had a restless night. I was up at 2:20 and up again at 6 so I do not really trust my temp. I will not test until the weekend if AF does not show. Since babymed said I O'ed on Cd 17 and preg.org said CD 20, I really dont know when I O'ed so I will wait as long as I can to test.
But like I have said a lot before....I just don't feel like this will be the month so testing is really the farthest thing from my mind.
Posted: 2003-03-27 06:48
AF was here are 6 am. B*^#H!!
Well I knew it was not the month but this month I am going to do things a little differently!! I am buying OPK's for sure. No more guessing!!! Here is to next month!!!
Posted: 2003-04-01 19:55
Nothing new here. 3rd round of Clomid and I am ready. I have the OPK's, I have been taking the EPO and I have the grapefruit juice. Which is not as bad as I thought it would be. So I am ready to get PG this month!!! YAY!!!!
Posted: 2003-04-02 17:23
New chart for this month.
I am such a dummy and forgot to take my temp today. Oh well!!
The EPO and grapefruit juice has already started helping!!!!
The hot flashes have not been that bad yet but I am sure they are coming!!
Posted: 2003-04-06 08:40
Nothing new here. Just EPO and grapefruit juice. I have not been having the bad hot flashes at night this month. I have had a few in the early evening but at least they are not waking me up!!
I will begin the OPK's on CD 13!!
Posted: 2003-04-07 12:32
The OPKS's will start tomorrow!!! I will take the EPO for 2 more days and then I will keep drinking the grapefruit juice.
I am really trying everything that I can this month!
We got a good head start on the BDing this weekend.
We did a lot of yard work and we both are really sore!! My butt is killing me!
I have to get back to working out TODAY!!!!! I am making a promise to myself!
Posted: 2003-04-10 09:10
I don't know why my chart is not saying that I O'ed. My temp was 97.4, 97.3 today it was 97.9. That seems like an O to me. I have not had a + OPK but my temps look like I O'ed so who knows!!! I am not taking any more EPO just in case but I am still drinking the grapefruit juice.
I have worked out Monday and Wednesday. I am just too adicted to my computer game. I am a sad, pathetic girl. But my weight has not gone up so I guess it is OK. I need to get back on the treadmill too. I will try to do that today and the pilates! Then my game. Maybe I need to tell myself no game until I work out!
Posted: 2003-04-11 06:52
Well my temps took a dip. I guess I am not Oing yet. I also have not gotten a + OPK. But now I am wondering if yesturday's was positive. It was very close to the same color. So who knows.
Posted: 2003-04-12 08:12
CD 17. I have used up all my OPK's and still no positive. The more I think about it the more I think that Wed's was positive. They were very close in color and if I was not such a perfectionist I probably would have thought that it was positive.
It also says to take the test around 10 am but I have to have my coffee on the way to work so I have to take it first thing in the morning. So maybe that is why the colors were not perfect.
Who knows. I guess I will find out Wednesday when I go in for my progest. test. I hope my levels are high!!!
Posted: 2003-04-13 08:21
Baymed is showing that I O'ed on CD 14. Which sucks because I did not get to BD the 2 days before that. The preg.org chart is not showing an O day yet. I have no idea!!
The preg.org chart still shows no O day. I really tried to find the O day this month. I can't believe that the OPK's never showed a positive. Not much to do now but wait for the progest test on Wed and to wait to see AF or not after that. There is too much time wasted waiting with TTCing.
I got back to working out today!!! I did 45 minutes yoga and 30 minutes pilates!!!
I am a slacker!!
Cd 22. My boobs are hurting. I bet AF will be here in a week. :cry:
My progesterone test was done yesturday. The DR's office said that I would not have the results until next week. But I have already bitched about that too much!!!
I worked out Tuesday but not since then. I was grumpy yesturday because of the results and seeing the happy family at the birthing center so I was sad and did not work out.
Today I have been busy because I found out last night that my MIL is coming for Easter dinner on Sat. That gives me 2 days to get ready. I have to clean the house, set up Easter decorations, plan a menu and buy food. I am very lucky that I have off tomorrow.
I went to the craft store and did the Easter decorations today. I think I have decided on a menu. Cleaning the house will be the most time consuming thing. I swear...I need a maid!!
My temp took a dip Sunday but then it came back up today. So I am not sure what is going on.
I should hear from the DR today about my progesterone levels. I don't feel any differently so I doubt I am PG. I bet my temps will go back down. We will see!! I don't want to get negative yet!
I worked out only 2 days last week. This week I will be better!!!
I hate my body!!! My temp stayed up today. I just know that my body is trying to get my hopes up just so they can crush them in the next day or so. :twisted: I refuse to get excited!!! I will just be more sad when AF shows.
But there is a little voice inside who keeps saying...what if...could i have finally done it this time? I am trying not to listen!!
I worked out yesturday. 30 minutes on the treadmill. I just have to keep it up for the rest of the week!!! Today will be pilates and yoga.
2nd post today to say that I still do not have my results. I am really fed up now!! I will be going down there tomorrow if they do not have my results.
I did yoga today but I did not do pilates. I guess I got too hot and started feeling icky. I also kept losing my balance for some reason!
Busy, busy day for me!!
My progesterone came back 10.9. They said that is normal. Now I am waiting for my DR to look at my chart and send in my Clomid prescription.
Not sure if I will work out today becasue I have cramps really bad. I am suppose to do the treadmill. I will try later.
I totally did NOT do treadmill yesturday. I hurt all day.
I did take a hot bubble bath right before DH got home and that helped a little. Once he got home he poured me a beer and made dinner!! He is the best hubby!
I finally got to talk to my DR's office today. I will be on 50 mg of Clomid for one more month and if it does not work...they we will explore more aggressive methods.
I got my Clomid today and the EPO pills for this month and some more OPK's.
So I am ready for a new month!! Bring it on!!
I did treadmill yesturday!! But nothing today. I got my scanner and I have been playing. Also I have had a headache all day. I guess this rain is causing it.
Took my Clomid pill today. 4th times the charm right!! Oh wait that should be 3rd. Well I am making a new saying! Dark cloud of infertility...you are going down this month!!
The hot flashes are here now!! The first 2 months of Clomid they happened at night when I was sleeping. They would wake me up. But last month and now they are very bad between 7-9pm.
We went furniture shopping today for a few things. DH was in the mood to spend a little money!!! Very rare!
I have had a headache most of the day. Not sure if it is my sinuses from the weather or the Clomid. But it sucks!!
Took the last Clomid pill today. I am drinking grapefruit juice like crazy!!
I will start the OPK's in 5 days. I changed brands this month so I hope these work better since I did not get + one last month!!
Nothing new. I did do 30 minutes on the treadmill!!
Just waiting to start using the OPK's.
CD 9. I have not linked me new chart yet.
So far my temps are all over the place. Up and down.
DH's back should be better in a few days so he should be rested and ready to go!!
The BD fest will start in 3 days. I want to BD everyday for a from CD 12-CD 18. This is something I have not been able to get DH to do.
I have been really slack about posting. My chart is really messed up. It is CD 14 and my temp should have dropped to show that I am Oing. But it has been like a roller coaster this month. I am not sure what is going on. I am trying my best to get PG this month but my chart is not helping me!!
My chart is still not showing an O day. I am confused at why I have not O'ed yet. The last 2 months it was on CD 14. AAAGGGHHH!!!!
I am giving up on this month. I still don't show an O day and we have only BD'ed 3 times this month.
I am very disgusted with the outcome of this month. I had such high hopes. I was going to do everything that I could do to make it happen this month.
Maybe the impending lunch today with MIL is making me a little grumpy.
I have been really slack!! Well both temp charts show an O day. A very late O day. Not sure if it will mess with my progesterone test results or not. I am hoping to hear about the test tomorrow.
I finally got back to working out. I did the treadmill today. I have just been so lazy and I have had zero motivation. But pat on the back for me!
We have had a few graduates...I want to join them but not sure what happened this month. Why could this month be like the other Clomid months. UGH!! I hate that this is so hard.
Well not sure when to expect AF. I guess since I O'ed really late it will be around CD 30. My boobs are starting to get a little sore so I am sure she is on the way.
I am hoping to hear about my progesterone test results tomorrow. I am expecting them to be very low since I O'ed very late.
I am interested to see what the next steps will be. I hope to meet with my DR. I have not talked to her since right before I started Clomid, only a nurse.
My temp dropped today. I guess Af will be here soon.
I have not heard from the DR today yet. I can't believe how long it takes to get results back. At least this month I was prepared for a week long wait.
My progesterone came back at 7.4. I am guessing that it is low because I O'ed so late.
Not that it matters becuse it looks like AF will be here today or tomorrow. My temp dropped again. :cry:
On a happy note...I finally exercised yesturday. It is hard to get motivated when there are so many computer and video games to play!!!!
I did 45 minutes of yoga. YAY ME!
10 DPO I think
My temps have gone back up for the past 2 days. But this happened last month too so I am not getting my hope up.
My boobs are still sore and my weight is up a few pounds which always happens before AF comes. I expect her in the next few days.
I did 45 minutes on the treadmill yesturday and today I did 45 minutes of yoga! It feels great to be back to working out!
This is what happened yesturday......
My temp dropped again so I figure AF will be here over the weekend so I decided to fax my chart to my DR since it is a holiday weekend. This was around 10-11. They tell me that my DR is at the other office across the street and to fax it there.
So around 3:00 I call because I have not heard from the DR's office about my Clomid refill. They say..."Oh we just found it on the fax, it was still on the machine. I will give it to your DR."
So I pick up my nephew, go to the store and I get home, do a few things and I realize that it is 4:38 and I have not heard from the DR's office.
So I call and guess what....THEY CLOSE AT 4:30.
I am suppose to start Clomid on my 3rd CD. If I start tonight I will need it for Sunday. If I start tomorrow I will need it for Monday. So I am guessing that I am screwed this cycle. Although some people do take it CD 5-9.
Crappy day till DH decides to take me out to dinner to cheer me up. I did nto work out yesturday...I stressed instead and I am sure that burned some calories!
CD 1. :cry:
I am supose to start the Clomid Monday but since they are closed....UGH. Still mad at the stupid nurse who left my chart on the machine.
Now I am wondering if I wait and take the Clomid CD 5-9...take Vitex this cycle....take a month off. Not sure.
Dh and I are going to the fleamarket so I will get a lot of walking done today. Maybe if the cramps stop I will do my yoga when we get home.
So no more Clomid for me. At least not for a while. An HSG is in my furure. I am going to try the Vitex for a month or 2. Then we will see. Even if the Vitex does not help me get PG then maybe it will help keep my cycles to a normal length. I really don't wan't to go back to 35-40 day cycles.
Well according to the DR...HSG is coded as infertility so insurance will not cover anything. Next week I will have to start looking for a new DR.
I found 5 baby fishies in my fish tank today! I am so excited!!!
I also got to lay out today for the first time this summer!! I am pinkish!
Cd 11 I think but who knows. Besides temping I am not really into the TTCing thing this month. I have not called DR's about getting an HSG, I have not been taking EPO, I did not buy OPK's. The only thing I am doing is taking Vitex just to see whay it does to my cycle. I am not going to worry about BDing or anything. Dh and I still have not talked about our next step. He has been sick for a few days.
I have not been able to post for 2 days. Mollee had to fix it so I could post again!! I was having preg.org withdralws!!!
I was sick Monday but I have been on the treadmill Tues and Wed. 45 minutes both days!! YAY ME!
