1st Cycle on Clomid - Page 6
Aww.. I'm so sorry to hear that ::hugs::
Sorry to hear that MsDolphin- I remember how much stock I had put in my first round of Clomid (I'm on #3, 2nd IUI). I hope you don't lose hope, the clomid stays in your system so hopefully your next O is even stronger. I'm glad you came out of lurking, we are all (the whole 3 of us) very supportive & are glad to have you here until you get that BFP. Take it easy on yourself for a few days, it is so crushing!
sherry- what are you doing testing again at 9dpo, most eggs don't even implant until 10 DPO... There is my scolding for the day, now don't let yourself get down give it some more time!
indie- are you getting antsy yet--- for testing and to escape the in laws?
AFM- I talked to my nurse but this morning the pain is almost all gone, she said it sounds like normal post-clomid-ovulation combined with IUI/Trigger etc that can cause excess fluid to buildup after ovulation... hopefully it is gone now and my eggadoo is making its way to my squishy bloated uterus... seriously, I hate the prometrium induced baby bump... it's embarassing.
Glad your feeling better cbaa- enjoy it before the triplets start compressing your internal organs.
I have had a pms free life- then si.ce Surgery in May ive had pure misery. Sharp ilness inducing o pain on the left side- where the tube is blocked- until these past two clomid cycles. Then nothing really. At CD 20 i would start with nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, fatigue, mood swings, sadness and bloating to the point that my pants wouldn't fit. Till day 28 when af would come.
NOW: nothing- zero symptoms! I felt blah and moody wed-friday- then getting better- today- NO symptoms- back into pants- bloating gone- no cramps- breasts feel fine. Im longing for chinese food and the gym. This is the least pregnant (and least hopeful) i've felt in 7 months.
I just hope the oast two months of clomid knocked my right ovary into gear. I' m going to try metformin- and after ive filled my Rx- announce to DH that i'm going to an RE.
Or perhaps i should wait til next O in case he holds a grudge.
INDIE..... i have sticks!! I can overnight them to you....
@msdolphin- great- just the word "start" makes things feel better for me. Like moving forward!!! Banish the dwelling-
What dosage are you on? and what cycle days?
Did you have any issues with it? side effects? dried up ewcm?
Indie- come back already- i miss you- actualy i hope you are having so much fun that your not thinking about any of this. When you come back and catch up you can think " wow these people are obsessed"
Cbaa- Your 2ww is feeling longer than my own...I just have such high hopes.
afm: I was determined to be done with the Clomid myself, but today..well...I'm thinking..maybe a higher dose. I was on 100mg. 1st cycle days 5-9 second cycle 3-7. I could have worked well for me- but knowing that if I don't O on the right side- makes me want to try everything at least a couple of times.
I am pretty much AF resigned for sure today. I just feel so premenstral. I even wonder if it will come early. I'm CD27 10 dpo with a normal 28-30 day cycle- projected at 32 with the late O. NO symptoms!! I ate smelly chinese food- my energy is back- i went to the gym- no B tenderness- dry as a bone in a pyramid.
and forget baby dust- i want an all out baby sand storm for you all!!! So many positives this month!!
hey ya'llllll (the mountains are getting to me)
msdolphin: i'm so sorry. i know how crushed i was last cycle. hang in there and hang out with us!!
sherry: you have inspired me to get moving on seeing an RE. make your appt and then i will make mine!!
cbaa: i hope your eggies are on the wayto your bloated uterus as well! :)
8dpo here. i drive home tomorrow. then the testing will begin. i'm scared. i am afraid of being crushed during holiday maddness. vacay has been fun but being surrounded by nieces and nephews makes the absence of my own that much harder.
no unusual symptoms to report. just typical post O breakouts and breast tenderness. keep a positive thought for me... i'll be back to regular posting soon !
I believe I am on 50mg and on a 28 day cycle. Is that what you are asking? (sorry still learning). The only thing I really noticed, I really cramped up when I hit O. At the time I didn't really know what it was, until I read about it later, that it meant I was O.
So here's the silly side of me and I try not to get too caught up in it... but it still gives me hope. One of my girlfriends said any time her pastor prays for someone to get pregnant they do, so she put in a special prayer request for me. Another friend sees a psychic, who is well known in our area and hard to get appointments with cause she is "good", the psychic specifically told this friend I was pregnant with a girl. However that reading was several months ago, so I hold hope that she was seeing something in the future, not that I m/c and didn't realize it. What makes it interesting is the friend didn't ask about me, the psychic just out of the blue mentioned it.
MsDolphin, sounds like you have some promising signs out there, lets hope the pastors direct line to the man upstairs works fast! Soby cycle days we mean when are you taking the clomid, 3 days into af, 4 days, Or 5? then you take it for 5days? Right?
I find out my fate tomorrow for next cycle, if it comes.... For now i'm just meddling my way through the 2ww.I keep forgetting my pineapple core... Darn. I had one of my patients drop off a Christmas card with a St Gerard medal & The Prayer for Motherhood prayercard, it is nice to know people everywhere are praying for me.
So far no symptoms, just the same old progesterone induced bloat, moody short tempered... Yup thats it. Off to eat some pineapple core before I forget again...
Well nothing yet- but i had my morning cry- under the covers....so tomorrow at 6am I am loading myself DD and a few stray college kids from "back home" into the car and heading out. It's a seven hour drive..but I'll have plenty of boisterous company...Dinner with my girls and their various husband, boyfriends and my parents- drop off DD friday am- and drive the seven hours back.....alone....in the quiet of my car...while AF is starting.....blah....I am not good with keeping positive under such circumstances--- I'll overthink and cry my way home....and it's near Buffalo- there will likely be a blizzard...
SO KEEP POSTING- It could keep me from driving off a cliff- jkjk- :-)))
Sherry- keep your eyes on the road and on the future prize, I have a good feeling about you, you're going to make it happen, hoping for good news in 2012.
I was at acupuncture today when she told me she had 39 successful pregnancies this year and was hoping I'd be # 40... So I laid there praying and meditating, thinking yes I will be # 40, great #... So it is nearing the end of my appointment when another client comes in (she has 3 rooms) and I hear her say, I don't know how this happened, we only had sex once this month, but I was 5 days late and I tested and it was positive, so I went to my OB and it was positive! I mean, she told me after they had been trying for 2 years so of course I'm happy to hear a sucess, but then I started thinking to myself, 41 is a great number, 41 is a GREAT number! I can be 41... Ahh the trials and tribulations of IF...
I'm cranky and moody, just like yesterday, or was that just this morning? Bah Humbug!
i'm back at a computer and internet and just reread the last few days of this thread to see if i missed anything...
sherry - i wish i could give you hug in person. i'm so, so sorry. if i were you i would actually be looking forward to a long drive by myself so i could have a good cry in private (except, of course, for all the other people passing by on the road). i'm going to have to find a way to get some time by myself at the end of this cycle. cbaa is right... 2012 will be a good year for you... you and your dh will get that baby! in the meantime, we are here for you!
skeemama... welcome! and i also have been known to test twice a day. but after a year of disappointment... i'm now getting more and more gun shy about poas.
msdolphin - good luck with round two! did you have any issues with cm drying up? are you doing anything to counteract that? also, i love the pastor and psychic story... i'm always looking for good omens myself... the last one i got was a dream from my SIL. wishing i could get a few more. i need some encouragement to keep me going...
cbaa - oh man, that acupuncture story... talk about having your emotions played. but 41 IS a good number. i went to acupuncture for a while when my cycles were really screwy. i'm not sure if it was the acupuncture, the vitex, the b complex or a combo of all three but they eventually started evening out. i bought a book on tcm and fertility and i really do find a lot of value in it. but i eventually stopped because life got busy and the acupuncturist, though well meaning, wasn't always encouraging. so sometimes i would leave feeling $70 poorer AND less optimistic. it sounds like you have a really encouraging one. any updates? what dpiui are you now?
AFM: i'm 10 dpo today. last night i held my pee for 3.5 hours on our last leg of the drive and the poas when i got home. BFN. i know it's still quite early at 9dpo but i did get my BFP on the evening of 9dpo last time so i know it's possible... but not even a squinter this time (sherry - that trick about holding your phone light behind the stick... GENIUS. i can totally make myself imagine a second line and that light trick helps me from going cross eyed by trying to stare that second line into existence!). i couldn't bring myself to test this morning. i will wait til tomorrow. this is going to be so hard this time, you guys. i will be finding out the fate of this cycle just in time for a giant christmas eve party dh and i are hosting. i need to make sure i have time set aside for a good cry prior so it doesn't sneak up on me at a most awkward time. i guess the only upside is i can partake in consolation cocktails. bah humbug for real. sometimes i wonder if i just imagined getting pregnant last time. if it was all in my head. but then i remember the d&c and yah, it definitely happened. i think i am going to push the ob/gyn to do an hsg this next cycle (they wanted me to do three rounds of fertility drugs before doing it but i want it done now). after i find out the results of that i will move over to an RE. i am still nervous that i have had tube blockage or endo since the miscarriage. especially since i have had weird pelvic pain on and off since the m/c (but come to think of it, i haven't had it all this cycle... knock on wood). anyway, enough rambling... i need to get busy! so much to do!
keep posting, please! also, so glad we are getting some lurkers out of the shadows! :) i myself have lurked on these threads for the past year before jumping in and participating... so i totally get it. but glad to have more company!
it's time for at least ONE of us to get that BFP! we need the encouragement! i mean, come on!!
