I went for my u/s today and everything looked good - 24 mm follicle and perfect lining. They took blood and left a message on my cell while I was at the movies with my daughter (we saw Charlotte's Web - and I cried my eyes out at the end...thanks, Clomid) that we're supposed to come in on Sunday morning for the IUI.
How do they know it's Sunday and not tomorrow that's the ideal time for an IUI?
Must. Not. Freak. Out. And. Drive. Myself. Crazy. By. Obsessing.:

I just talked to my neighbor who's due in March with her first. It took them two years to conceive and we've talked extensively about both of our plights to get pregnant. I told her that this was the first month I had side effects with the Clomid and that the RE said today that if the side effects were too much for me this month we could consider the injectibles...at almost $1000 a pop! My neighbor told me I can have her leftovers that she kept in her fridge if I need 'em!
I really really hope I don't have to go that route.

Oh...here's something neat - Sunday is the 31st and I was inseminated on Jan 3 of 2003 when I got pg with Isadora. Pretty close, eh?

How's everyone else doing? Anyone else close to O?

I am in the same boat as some of you. I am 36 years (and counting) and we have recently gone to a RE in our area (Missouri). He first wanted to test my progesterone and it came back a 1.4! That's right...1.4! Of course it was the day AF came so it is expected to be low. Isnt that even lower than normal? I am in process of testing my ovulation reserve and am worried to death that is the problem. My mom went through menopause in her late 40's. I started Clomid this morning and was expecting to have a lot of side effects, but I actually felt really good. I had more energy than normal.

After reading some of your stories I see that the worst may be yet to come with my Clomid experience. I am only on 50 mg. The waiting is the worst! I read that a sign of problems with ovulation reserve is a short follicular phase. Is that true? My follicular phase doesn't seem to be the problem. My luteal phase is only 10 days long. Any thought?

I see this site hasn't been used in some time. Anybody in our shoes?

For me yes it did make me cranky but basically I let everyone know that it's hormones. My husband would have divorced me if he didn't know the reason I was acting that way is because of the meds. Also for me, around the time of ovulation I would feel like I was carrying bowling balls in my uterus. If this happens don't freak out. Don't test too early because you can get what they call a clomid line. good luck

Clomid

Thanks for the info Klockdj. Boy you ae right about the bowling ball! I have had moderate pain just on one side of my abdomen. Did you have that as well? I am now waiting it out to see if AF comes along. Did you continue to have Clomid side effects adter ovulation?

I know this thread is a bit old but...

...I'm on my first cycle with Clomid. We've never done any fertility treatments so this is our first time with it all. I'm a little concerned because I've been reading the posts on this thread and other threads regarding Clomid, and I must say that other than a constant headache and feeling like I have to pee more frequently, I haven't noticed any real changes.

No hot flashes, mood swings, pain, nausea, dizziness, etc.

Does this mean it's not working? I'm on day 7 of my cycle, and day 3 of clomid (they wanted me to take it days 5-9). DH has an analyses scheduled for Friday, and the follicle screening is next Tuesday.

Has anyone had clomid work for them and NOT feel the symptoms like most are feeling??

I used clomid (100 mg) to conceive my dd and I don't remember having any of the symptoms above and it was successful in creating follicles. However, I did still need the HCG trigger shot in order to ovulate. Just remember that every woman is different as far as their reactions to medication.

Good luck!

thanks! I'm on 50 mg right now. Tomorrow's my last day on it. My headache finally died down a bit. It's still there, but not like it's been the last few days. I am getting the HCG shot...this coming Tuesday, pending everything looks good when they do the follicle screening.
