what the heck?

Last night I got EWCM and a close to pos OPK and today my OPK is barely there (neg), no EWCM and my clearblue fertility monitor did not pick up a serge. so was my body just trying to O? I'm confused and i feel like i missed my chance. i did have a temp dip today so maybe I will o tomorrow?

That happened earlier in my cycle and I think I finally just O'ed. It is weird, huh? I have heard our bodies can start and stop several times before we actually O.

I've heard this too. Sometimes you can surge and not O. I usually O around CD15-16 on fertility meds and I usually knew for sure without even doing OPKs. On Clomid I could REALLY feel it. Have you been having any O pains or cramping or anything? I also got really bloated when I O'd on Clomid. I felt it this time on Femara too but it wasn't quite as intense. I kind of like feeling it though because then I know it happened.

i've been feeling small twinges and little cramps but nothing big and painfull. i guess it's not gonna make me o sooner maybe i'll still o around cd 19 but maybe it will be a better quality egg? I do feel bloated so maybe thats a good sign?

I think it'll be soon. It tends to make your LP longer too. The first month I thought I was late but every month on fertility meds my cycles have been 31 days instead of 28. I O about the same time as when I do without meds so I'm sure it'll happen for you. Keeping my fingers crossed that you'll catch that eggie!

thank you! Your reply is catching me right in time because I was just starting to think I'm not gonna O this month cuz I thought with clomid you O sooner in your cycle. I'm starting to doubt that it's gonna happen this month and we have been working so hard for nothing. It's not like it's not fun but I'm tired at the end of the day and most of the time BD is not on my list of things I want to do LOL. I'm so bad...

Don't worry I feel exactly the same way and I really have no excuse. I work part-time and we don't have any kids to wear us out yet and still but the time I get in bed I'm just ready to relax and be quiet and read and go to sleep. I also go to bed crazy late sometimes and DH often falls asleep on the couch waiting for me to go to bed so timing doesn't always work out unless we plan it. Lol. DTD is great and all but it's exhausting sometimes. In fact this time, DH said "I'm in pain, I don't think I can do it again." Lol. At least it's not just me.

I'm sure you'll O. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't O on Clomid if you can O without it. I have heard of a lot of people not O'ing until 19-21 or somewhere in there on Clomid. Maybe it has something to do with making your cycles longer. That can be a really good thing though. I know it's going to happen for you! I'm keeping my fingers crossed sweetie.

Well it looks like I did O on CD15 but my temps are already plumetting so I'm sure i'm not PG Sad We are thinking of quitting. DH thinks if it didn't work on Clomid it might not be meant to be. Owell. Ihave a little while to wait for AF and then I can decide if I want to call the RE or not.

Aww sweetie maybe it's just one of those things and it really did work and your temps are just doing something funky. It seems early for them to be going down if you're only 5DPO unless AF will be early and that doesn't seem to happen too much on Clomid. Usually makes your LP longer. I think it's worth it to call the RE if you can. I was so against calling the RE and I wasn't sure that I wanted to keep trying after Clomid. I was so tired of the disappointments and the medications and all the 2WWs. I'm so glad that I did call the RE though and they don't want to make you wait forever either. They want to get you started on a plan that will work asap so you're not just sitting around waiting for them all the time. May be that you just need Femara. My doc said that Femara is just so much better because Clomid cause change your ewcm and your lining to where you can have a fertilized egg that can never implant because the conditions aren't good. Femara doesn't do that though. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you hun! I really think it'll happen for you soon!
