AFM- I thought for sure AF started last night, but nothing when I went to the bathroom. Still not really having any symptoms besides feeling bloated. I hit the jackpot at the store the other day though. They had the 3 packs of FR on clearance for $3, plus they had dollar off coupons on them, so I bought all 4 that they had lol.

I wonder the same thing, if it's the clomid.
I am only 3DPO. My cycles average 25 days, so 9 days left to next cycle, but I've heard Clomid pushes your cycle out? I did buy 6 $ tree pregnancy tests and tried one but BFN...
I finally found a ob who will see me, I go in Tuesday. I am so beyond done with the prescribing ob. They said I had an appt Thursday and I showed up and they said I didn't have one.
Gah. So hCG or clomid making +opk :/

Great find on your tests!!! I wish I could find a deal like that! FX AF stays away.

AFM - My test this morning is darker joy.gif  
Yes, I think you predicted Thursday too in last months thread. I hate wacky things like opk's and temps.

And yay for darker lines!!!! Congrats again!!

Took an OPK test today and still no definite positive. 

 

I started clomid on 2/17 and finished on 2/21 so technically I should have O'd sometime between 02/26/2014 and 03/03/2014. Ironically, tomorrow is 3/3 and no positive. *shrugs* 

 

Can I also say that I have not told DH about my clomid cycle, when we need to DTD or any of that stuff. I didn't want to put pressure on him and after last month's huge disappointment, I could tell it was taking a toll on him. I would rather carry the burden of all this then let him do it. Besides, the other night was the first time in months I've felt like we made love instead of procreate. I've come to turns with the fact that if this cycle of clomid doesn't work my doc will want to do the blockage check. Sigh. I have another headache thinking about this.

Hey Ladies! I've updated and added a lot of newcomers! Welcome! Please make sure you are on the right spot. Congratulations to Jenjy, the 1st BFP for March!!!

 

AFM: I dont know if i ovulated this month, as you know I am still BF. I had lots of creamy CM but never got the EWCM. It's official I think we are going to wait until October due to our insurance. Husband says he doesn't mind paying for a few appts out of pocket but the first appt always seems to be the most expensive with all the blood work and stuff.  So I would rather wait until October and if I do get pregnant that month, I will just wait until the first of the year to go to the Dr's at about 12 weeks when we have our new insurance. As usual we will continue to not use BC though so I guess anything can happen! I waited until 10 weeks to go with my last pregnancy.


DH 31; Me 30; DD 5; DS 1; Baby boy due Dec 17th

This month I will be temping in addition to using opks, I think it will help with the stress of "did I actually O or is my body just trying to" kind of thing. We have a lot of decisions to make in the next few months and its all starting to feel really overwhelming. I'm trying to focus on all the fun stuff we have to look forward too, we are going to a charity event on the 15th, its a 1920's theme event, and its open bar. At least  I can drink I suppose. Our 6 year wedding anniversary is coming up at the end of the month too, so we'll be doing something for that, we just aren't sure what yet.  
I hope that temping will help. I'm sorry about this month <3

Well, I'll miss this month since DH won't try until we speak to the specialist, but our appt is for the 25th. So relieved we don't have to wait a few months to get in. I'm so mad tho bc he wanted us to come in on the 19th but that is my deadline day at work and no way can I be out that day.....but, at least I'll only have to not try for one cycle. And maybe I can confuse DH and seduce him anyway....

I love seeing all these pics of BFPs. I'm at 9dpo now, and had creamy/sticky CM for the past 5 days, which has never happened to me before. Particularly lots of CM on 6dpo, but OPK was negative, and now I've run out of opks.

 

Can I be added to 2ww? The wait is so long!

Shouldn't doctors check whether or not tubes are clear before trying fertility drugs? One of my first tests after blood tests on hormones was to check that. 

 

I took Clomid this cycle from 2/12-16, and got a positive opk/smiley face on ClearBlue digital on 2/22. I opened it up and also used IC to compare, and the test lines on both CB and IC were all lighter than the control line. If I hadn't gotten the smiley face I would've assumed the tests were negative...

Crossing my fingers for you! I have a good feeling. And if it makes you feel any better, I didn't have any spotting with either of my m/cs whereas my sister in law had spotting all throughout her pregnancy and she's due any day now (and everything looks good).

 

I'm just waiting for AF to show up, chances of being pregnant this cycle are pretty low, but I'm excited for the prospect of a normal period and new cycle.

Can I join? Not sure how often I'll be able to check in but were about to enter our 3rd cycle trying. So we've just started really. But my periods have been really whacky for about the past 6 months or so so I'm not expecting things to happen quickly.

Took a test this morning & negative. So waiting for AF/waiting to O, I guess! I'm a bit bummed because after having a series of short (24-day) cycles I was sure I was PG when day 28 came & went. But no. And now spotting so I suspect AF is just late. Glad the 2WW is over though.

Good luck everyone!!

Many of the newbies may not know me, but I like posting random bits of info from time to time.

My SIL conceived after getting a smiley face. She gave me her remaining stash of digital and cheapie opks, so I used them together. I never got dark lines like other ladies' opk pics. But then I guess I'm not 100% sure I ovulated and won't know until next week.

I go to the Dr in the morning. I've had 6 straight +opk now. It's driving me crazy. Still BD every other day though.
My hope is to have an ultrasound. I'm only 5dpo, don't know if they can see anything or not. I'd like to have a progesterone test done too, or a regular blood draw.
I've had nausea but I read that clomid can cause symptoms that mimic pregnancy and or start of AF. I'm predicted to start AF 3/12...hopefully good news tomorrow.

I do wayyyyy too much shopping on Amazon. So I just ordered my first set of digital ovulation tests. We'll see if these work. As of yesterday, I have not had a positive test yet so I guess we'll see what happens.

After searching all the remaining packed boxes in the new house, I found my BBT. And it was broken. DH said lets just wing it but my obgyn wanted a full month of charting. Ugh. Great March start I guess.

How are you doing Rosie?

Okay... So I'm having trouble holding my pee for at least 4 hours to be able to test OPK's. I've heard you are not suppose to test first pee in the morning with these, yes? I have to cross my legs and try and make myself hold it that long during the day. I do drink a lot of water though.... Anyone else have this issue, or is it just me? :Sheepish Any tips?

I have heard that afternoon pee needs to be used, but I haven't heard of holding it. If you need to hold it, you can try to "concentrate" your water drinking so it's like 3 glasses within an hour of waking, then nothing or just sips for a few hours, then water with lunch or whatever, then do your OPK pee, then good to drink whatever for the rest of the day?
