Yeah but my husband is willing to try things. Plus we can use it when we ttc #2. It doesn't go bad. I'm just wondering when I start my clomid treatment, if I should use it since they'll be inducing ovulation? What if I ovulate before they induce??

it is a food in capsule or powder form, i believe tincture too. it grows in the andies, look over on the Maca forms, there has been a lot of success with it shortening cycles, and everything. i have been taking it for a cycle and a half and my last cycle, (took it since cd1) was only 33 days!! and my af visit itself was not painful or clotty and she stayed only 5 days (usually have 50+ day cycles, and visits from 5-14 days)

Is that something you RE suggested? Would it interfere with my clomid, and ovidrel treatment?? I was going to also try acupressure.

umm... if you are on clomid you are going to ovulate only once (if it all). You won't ovulate and then take clomid and ovulate again without having a period. They will start your clomid immedietly after an induced or natural period which will mean you will ovulate about 5-9 days after your last dose of Clomid.

Wow awesome! Hoping it does the same for me! I've been taking it for a week and a half and so far I've only noticed that I'm a little crampy...but I really can't tell if it's from my ovaries or gassiness (I've heard it can upset the GI in some )

I know. They'll induce ovulation with ovidrel once follies are 18 -19 mm. and I believe suppositories of progesterone after ovulation.

OK- I get what you are saying now. I think your watch should still work in that case. If not though, do you temp?

Tomorrow is going to be chaotic for me, so I'm checking in now:

Name: Heather Nicole
Date: February 1st
Where are you at in your cycle: CD4, TTC MONTH 3
Appointments: n/a..need to make one with the RE to check in.
Symptoms if they apply: AF showing her ugly head
Testing: Started using the First Response Ovulation Monitor (300$...oy!) this month, so we shall see how it goes. I'm also BBT & OPK testing.
Thoughts: February is going to be awesome. DH and I were really disappointed that things didn't work out, but we are roaring and ready to try again this month!

I have an OV watch. It is but it's worth it. I can't tell with my cm when I ovulate. Plus charting was so comfusiing and the watch does all the work 4 you.

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 30, 12 DPO

Appointments: None

Symptoms if they apply: Very irritable/weepy, super gassy/bloated, tired...oh, wait...those are symptoms of AF! :

Testing: Already did 9 DPO and this morning...negative :

Thoughts: AF is supposed to show tomorrow, and I'm starting to feel crampy. I just feel so incredibly down right now. I think I may need to go see a counselor, because it's getting pretty bad. Pretty sure I'll be on to cycle 17 tomorrow.

Its still early!! Dont give up hope yet.

My boobs arent as sore today as they have been. And definetly feeling crampy yet. I was so sick last night. We went to a Super bowl party and something I ate did not agree with me. I was awake half the night shaking. (I get shakes from too much sugar or starch) I still feel like yucky this morning.

p.s. My chart is looking so good, lol Just had to brag for a minute.

LibbyLou - : Congratulations!:

Lauren
- Sorry about AF...I'm glad you're excited about February, though! Your chart looked great, and you have such a nice, healthy LP. Hopefully the maca will start bumping that O date back a little for you!!

mrscompgeek - : I think mid-cycle cramping is a good sign! I can always feel implantation. Hope that's what you're feeling now!

Monday Check In:
Name: mom-to-jj
Date: 2/2/09
Where are you at in your cycle? cd14 (I think 1DPO)
Appointments: n/a
Symptoms: n/a
Thoughts: Hopeful. Not hopeful. Hopeful. Not hopeful. Repeat all day.

I think I O'd yesterday, but still confused about why I got a - LH test the night before. At any rate, I've done all I can do and at least know we covered all our bases as far as BD was concerned. Now just have to sit around and wait for 12 days obsessing about every twinge, craving, yawn, and potty break!

Where are you at in your cycle: 8DPO
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: crampy, backache, kinda emotional, having dreams of labor.
Testing: Feb 12th; 18DPO
Thoughts: My temp is way higher then it's ever been this morning, and I'm even up a bit earlier than normal. I felt like AF was coming yesterday, backache, crampy, etc, but my LP has been about 13-14 days so it's way too early unless my cycle is really screwy.
