Anon - Hopefully you have an answer soon. I understand the not knowing (it can drive a person mad).

An interesting note - my cervix seems to not want to stay still. It keeps moving. I had been pretty high, then day before yesterday it felt kinda low (it could have been medium but I marked it as low on my chart) and yesterday it was way high. I almost couldn't find it. More wierdness. My chart's kinda stabilized too, which I guess is good. It's above the coverline still too.

ETA: Top of the page... That's never happened before

Mama to Aeden, : my little NICU grad and Conner and Liam () my precious twins. is due mid April!

Well - now I'm completely confused. Still have some pinkish CM, but while my temp went down a bit today, it's not the huge below-the-coverline drop I would normally get right before AF. BUT - last month I had 3 days of spotting before my big temp drop, so I'm assuming that AF will show up before this weekend is over.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to say the AF came this morning and I'm not at all upset. I will start the Clomid. BTW, and thank you for asking, I have researched all the negatives and things that can happen. I also know some women that were given Clomid and no follow up appointment by their docs. I thought that was weird, why wouldn't their doc want to follow them while they were on it??? Oh well.

All those in the 2WW...Baby dust to you all and hopefully you'll all get BFP this month. I'm looking forward to Bding every other day (since he's only home every other day) and making a Clomid baby this month.

Hopesmom can you tell me some of the side effects you have had from Clomid? Did your DH follow you on it or an RE? What were your symptoms in the 2WW? I saw your comments about it, and I assume it makes you feel pregnant right? Ok, well I can't wait to see some BFP's for all of us soon!!!!

We all seem desperate to HAVE BABIES. I often feel similarly desperate and angry with the medical community who seems to serioulsy BLUNDER along through this process. But after a few rough months I have decided that my daily job is to take the "desperately" out of the equation. I don't believe that the process is worth sacrificing for the product. I want to bring a baby into this world from a place of peace.

I aim to hold on to my sanity and I reclaim that for myself and hope that we each can find a path of integrity in this often confusing and rather hormonal world. After 5 years of working through this process I still have no kids. My partner came down with cancer and has no sperm. I would love a kid but am also about to turn 40 and Clomid is not a good idea for women of my age. I have actually tried four times! yeah I look forward to trying again. The biggest problem for me is the timing and getting it right with frozen sperm. I was obsessive in the first four months of trying and it just sucked. I yelled at the nurses and cried much of the time when the tests came back negative or my temp spiked or who the heck knows. But you know stress really has an impact and it might be the one thing I can actually reduce. And the relaxed happy women who aren't trying seem to be the ones who are most successful.

So my question for you is why do you specifically take Clomid? How are you TTC?

You said you like to research everything and I love that also. Have you tried "PUB MED" or the Oxford Journal of Reproductive Med?

Here is a link to Oxford
On Oxford Journal: http://humrep.oxfordjournals.org/

One can do a search on Clomiphene Citrate and success rates or really anything else for that matter and read all the abstracts or full articles if interested. I find this scientific info very useful and empowering for making decisions and besides learning a new language the language of fertility can be very interesting. It is amazing how much the DR's don't know about us.

I celebrate the OFTEN CONFOUNDING but very wonderful mystery of our bodies. It just don't happen exactly when and how we want it to and this I must say is likely a very good thing.

Hello 6+-monthers!

I'm on CD 4 and I'm still bleeding. This is good news. I'd had really short, light periods. I think the Prometrium and acuptuncture are making this one heavier. This cycle I'm going to see the nurse practitioner again and try to get orders for more prometrium, betas, and some more bloodwork. I'll also ask about clomid. I am starting a list of questions now so I get everything covered.

Oh... I'm so sorry anon and Tenk! The last few days are the hardest. I was pretty : the last few days of this last cycle. And good luck to ChristyM26 and Itybty: We really need some bfps around here.

ShaneMK--I'll check out the oxford journal site. I'm thinking about Clomid too. It would be mostly to boost progesterone, as I'm fairly sure I ovulate regularly and pretty robustly. But I'm trying Prometrium suppositories after O now and I figure that since I have only been doing that 2 months, I should probably give it a bit more time. I guess its success rate is questionable, but if progesterone was the problem then maybe....

It's an absolutely lovely day here. I'm going out for a bit to enjoy it.

Thinking good thoughts for you Itybty and Christy.

Funnygrace- you seem upbeat and ready to reevaluate. How often are you going for acupuncture?

Tenk-I'm not trying to dissuade you but 100mg of Clomid is not the normal starting point, as far as I know. I'm currently taking 50 mg days 3-7 and NOT being monitored at all. Unless talking to my husband about how I feel and using an OPK to document ovulation counts. This will be our last cycle on Clomid unless I can find a better reason to be using it. But my husband says they prescribe it all the time to women like me (whether or not it gets them pregnant, I can't determine ).
Anyway, I've been super tired since day 1 of taking the first pill. A bit hungrier than normal too. My LP was very rough last time. Nausea, headaches, frequent peeing, sore boobs, excess saliva and a metallic taste in my mouth. So... made me feel very pregnant and I wasn't.

I know there are others I'd like to do personals for--but I can't remember now. Take care ladies!

Well, I don't think I'm going to test. I'm just going to wait for af, whenever she shows up, she shows up. My body is stupid and I don't even think I've ovulated. Heck, I'm beginning to think that I should just give up completely. We don't really have the money to be going to specialists and I don't think I want to throw more drugs into my body. I mean, look at the bc pills. Supposedly harmless but since I don't think I've ever ovulated since ending them (and I used to ovulate, even if I had long cycles). I don't want to add more drugs to the mess and make it worse. Besides, I have a horrible fear of needles, so if I had to start doing shots of things I don't think I could do it. I know my DH couldn't do it so we'd be stuck there. Maybe I'm just not supposed to be a mom.

Sorry, this is such a pity party. :

Christy, I know how you must be hurting. You know, I started spotting today so I am pretty sure my AF is coming tomorrow, so I ordered on the internet some more ovulation tests. I got 40 of them and they were only 24.00 (which is about how much a pack at the store of seven would cost. Anyway, it seems like you could just routinely test every morning (so you don't have to hold it for four hours in the day) and that would give you a positive at some point during your cycle. It seems like it would make you feel better to get that positive.

I am think I already grieved for this one last night, so I am kind of an emotionless zombie today. But I am thinking about how everyone says "relax" and it will happen. I just want to put in my two cents here that I was darn relaxed for seven years on no birth control whatsoever, but not even thinking about trying to get pregnant and definitely not trying to protect ourselves FROM getting pregnant, and still never became pregnant, so now I am trying hard for eight cycles, and it becomes a little distressing and scary, thinking that maybe that was it for my baby making. Also, when you are increasing in age and there seems to be a "deadline" as I am now learning (even though you continue to bleed for 10-15 more years after - how fair is that????
it is very understandable for this to be a very emotional time and a time to feel a little desperate for that baby. I am 37 and after trying this long, I will now be 38 if I ever conceive again. I am so not ready to be done having a bigger family, which is the center of everything that makes me happy in this world. So I figure any emotions you go through you have a right to. So that "relax and it will happen" thing is bunch of cr*p!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel for everyone here and all of your situations. I hope to see all of your efforts fulfilled soon. Okay, time to : again, I thought I was done.

Hi everyone, thank you Shane for the wonderful site, I am always up for new places to get info on my body or the little ones. I honestly do welcome any and all adivse, as we/I are only human, and don't always use the best judgement.

Hopesmom Thank you so much for your info as well. It's nice to know that you are taking it with out being followed day to day (other than talking to your DH who happens to be an OB/GYN)
I have also read of many many women who have obtained Clomid on the net, and taken it CD 1-5. Not everyone has had the desired out come but lots of them did. I do hope it works for you this time as well. Oh all of the women taking it on the web started at 100mg also.

For everyone else, I know the last few days have been tough for almost all of us, but REMEMBER, every struggle, and every pain, and every heart ache that we endure...in the end when you ALL OF YOU hold that beautiful little one that you are dreaming about right now...it will all be worth it, and it won't matter how much or how hard it was to get them...

I totally melted down last night, cried until I couldn't cry anymore, had a big fat glass of red wine, and went to bed. Woke up numb this morning, but then the dog wouldn't get up to go out (He's 13 and semi-senile and has bad hips) and I melted down again. Mad that he wouldn't get up to go out (cause he'll pee on the floor) and upset that he was old and couldn't get up, and worried that he might *not* get up (he is 13 after all...) so I put a cookie down just out of his reach, and left the room, and when I heard him get up I went back in,k scolded him for making me cry (not mean scolding though!) and then walked him.

Then I couldn't find my dayplanner/wallet. It wasn't in the house, or in either car, and I melted down again. I finally found it, after a frantic phone call to DH to tell him we'd been robbed and my wallet was missing, and that the toilet was leaking, and the floor was wet and I couldn't even go to the library until I found my wallet, and I couldn't find it, and I was in total nut-case mode, then I found my wallet, (the cat had knocked it off the side table along with a stack of magazines... so it was hidden quite well) and I felt like a huge ass.

So I finally got myself cleaned up (again) put on mascara (3rd time) and got in the car to go to the store, and a sad song came on the radio and I misted up again! Augh! So I popped in a good n loud CD and turned up the volume to damn near ear-splitting and forced myself to sing along. Went to the store, wandered around in a fog, completely zoned while checking out, and the clerk wound up just asking for my debit card so *she* could swipe it (after my 3rd attempt to swipe it the wrong way! )

So now I'm in that emotionless zombie mode. I just watched a movie and ate an *entire* bag of those Olestra chips after I got home. I'll pay for that tomorrow. : (What was I thinking? Light chips? Emotional binge eating? Thats a dumb move! ) I also bought ice cream. I figure that it'll be gone by Sunday.

Here is where I get confused though. Might be TMI for some. I'm spotting, but not in the - I saw spots in my undies - way. In fact, I wore a pad all day today, nothing on it. It's perfectly clean. If I wipe, and hold the tissue at the "entrance" for a minute, it's lightly pink tinged when I examine it. (And I've been doing this at EVERY bathroom break today) But no actual red blood. It's like, pinkish CM. What in the world does That mean? SHould I take another test? Could it be implantation? It started last night at midnight-ish, and it's still doing exactly the same "non-spotting" pinkish tinged CM. (Without a hint of cramps or normal PMS or any actual blood.) I am tired as hell though, and I'm averaginf 8-10 hours of sleep per night. I want to think that maybe it's BFP time, but I'm really, truely scared to let myself think that. It would only make me that much sadder if/when AF shows up for real, ya know? What woudl you guys do? Does my chart look alright? Could I be pregnant? And I just extremely moody and PMS-y? (I'm not normally a big mood-swing/PMS/B*tch right before my period time kinda girl, so todays swings from rage to depression to blank is really odd for me)

Edit: Lily I'm with you on the ice cream thing, there is mint-oreo-cookie calling my name as I type...

ItyBty - what if you ovulated on CD21 or something? Let's see what happens tomorrow and GOOD LUCK!!!!! I am having the exact same thing, although I am not late yet.

But I am having sharp pains all day in my side, where appendix used to be, so kind of freaking out about that.

Itybty
I'm so so sorry your having such a tough time right now, I wish that I could sit down with you and watch a good old movie and eat pop corn (if you even like it). We could talk and I could try to talk you into testing, as you talk yourself out of it...hehe. It would almost be like we were just old friends hanging out.
I am crossing all extremities for you right now (ok, now I for sure not going to get PG this way) and I'm sure hoping it's your month!!!

Thanks Tenk and Lily. : Right now I'm lucid, chill and mellow, borderline happy. Talked on teh phone with a good friend who is due with her first in July, and it took them 2 years of trying, and she asked me if I was "preggers yet" and I just said not that I know of, and brushed it off. It SO wanted to be pregnant "with" her, ya know? If I was this month, I mean, if I am, the timing would be so perfect. We'll see DH's parents (who live halfway across the country) at Xmas, so I could tell his family in person, and it woudl make my baby only 5 or so months younger than friends baby, so they'd sorta grow up together... It would just be so ideal, ya know? I'm gonna POAS tomorrow am - cause still no actual blood-spotting. I'm totally confused, but since I had icecream, I think I'd good for the night.

I'm gonna hand over the computer to DH and then go to bed, cause this obsessive checking of MDC, and searching for prhases like "spotting" and "pink CM" is jsut gonna make me a crazy person. : Night Ladies! You rule!

AnonK. I wish you some peace after a very emotional cycle. I think we've all had cycles like that...I hope that is your last one and that you are healing.

: for Itybty and lilyflower it seems like both of you are still in the game. Any testing plans?

Christy- double I wish I could help you get some low cost answers. I DO think there are some. With the right OB, I think it is possible you could be diagnosed and treated. But until you get a doctor to help you identify what is going on, it is impossible to know what you could afford to do. I'll stop, I'm sure this isn't helpful. I'm thinking of you.

How does she know she's due in July? Did she JUST test positive?

Did I say July? (looks up at last nights post again, and smacks head... D'oh!) I meant April. : She's about 3 months along now. Sorry, blonde moment. :

Another BFN this morning, but yet, no pink CM at the moment. I'm so confused, I dunno whats up with me. At this point I'm expecting AF tomorrow or today even, yet, no cramps, no backache... and of course I forgot to temp this morning, so I came downstairs, POAS, went back u[, took my temp, put it in, and discarded it cause it was after walking around for a bit. (Still was only 97.4 though after climbing a flight of stairs - so I'm assuming it was 96.8 or so resting, hence me thinking AF today or tomorrow) THe only good thing about AF arriving would be that I can take the HSG, ask for an ultrasound, ask about Clomid, order some Preseed and Vitex, and maybe all but gurantee a BFP next month.

Good morning ladies. Another crazy warm day here... warm but with a slanted, fall sun. Very nice.

I'm really sorry to hear lilyflower's and Itybty's continuing sagas and I'm holding out hope for some bfps.

Hopesmom--I've been going to acupuncture twice a cycle--right before O and once in the luteal phase.

Hezzy have fun in Spain !


ItyBty & Lilyflower : Good luck ! Those last days of not knowing are always the worst. I think you both have a chance of having Ovulated a bit later than FF says and so that makes that wait that much longer and harder still


Christy I am sorry your charts and your body are not cooperating right now. If you are truly not ovulating then clomid might be something to consider ? I thought I read in your other thread that you are already taking vitex (which you cannot take with clomid). I have a friend who has also told me that red clover is good for fertility, from what I read it is estrogenic and helps ovulation (my friend uses it until ovulation then stops). She just gave me her leftovers - she is pg with #3 - and she said she uses two or three of the whole dried blossoms in her tea with red raspberry leaf and whatever else she feels like. Just a thought.


AnonK and Tenk I am sorry to hear about cd1. That stinks.





I am cd 16 and I think I finally O'd yesterday, let's hope so. I held off on the pre-seed this cycle because of just having the HSG last week, I don't want to use anything that has even the slightest potential for infection. And of course I am hopeful that the HSG will do the trick itself, oh please please please : This AM I had just a teesy bit of pink spotting, it is gone now. I don't know if it is from the HSG still making my cervix sore (it has been a week and we have dtd a bunch without anything like that except the first time a week ago) or if I am actually having midcycle spotting which I've never had before. Hoping that different = good this cycle.

There! Just for fun I change my ovulation date to CD 20 as the temperatures suggest, that makes this waiting game a little more interesting and longer lasting! No spotting today, weird. The first spotting day I had one tiny tinge of pink on TP. Second spotting day a tad more, but still nothing on a pad. Now today, no spotting. Same boat as you ITY. If your O date is possibly CD 21 or something, there is still a chance right?: : :

BUT, a dollar tree test this a.m. was BFN so I am thinking not for me ... but still enjoying the possibility until the last second. I am sure the second I submit this, I will get a big cramp or gush of AF, I just know it!!!

Another thing, last night is the first any ONLY night this month I had a good and solid night sleep, the rest have been pretty restless since ovulation.

Oceanmommy Midcycle spotting is NORMALLY a very very good indication of FERTILITY for the cycle...I know that is good for you and great info as well...GOOD LUCK
Itybty & Lilly I do hope that we get some good news very soon. All the other ladies here should be right about mid cycle...all of you.

So I will keep my extremities crossed for all of you to O on the right day, and get the little spermies flowing in the right direction!!!

I'm out. AF started this afternoon. So - tomorrow I'm ordering some preseed, and then I'm gonna get some soft flannel and make myself some momma cloth, cause this cycle should finish off my ucky 'sposies. Somehow, treating myself to momma cloth helps keep me amused at AF having arrived. Hopefully, I wont need my momma cloth next month. :

ITYBTY OHHH boo. I was hoping. I know mine is coming too. I tested again wtih FRER and it was negative. I feel my period coming. It seems to be trapped and I can feel it wanting to come. It took me a while to figure out what a momma cloth and ucky sposies were!

I think next month is it for us!!!! I am telling you!

Hey everyone. Thanks again for all the hugs and support. They are so appreciated.

Cd3 here, and I talked to DH yesterday about our plans. I called our local acupuncturist, and I'm thinking about stopping the Optivite supplements I've been taking. They are supposed to help with PMS (which usually isn't a problem for me) but as we clearly saw I just had he worst PMS ever. Also, I had about a week of cramps, which I naturally hoped meant something else, as I almost never have cramps before I start. I'm concerned that they may have tipped my hormones in a not-so-good way, and reactivated my endo which has been dormant for two years or so. At the very least, I'd enjoy going through a cycle without any extra insanity, iykwim.

: Sorry to hear about all the BFNs. That so totally sucks.

ItyBty - I use lunapads and mostly love them. (I was a dedicated tampon wearer before). I am always on the fence about buying a Diva Cup or Moon Cup but I always manage to convince myself that if I do that will be the cycle I get pg and then I'll have the wrong size. Maybe I should do it anyway and see if I can jinx myself... in a good way!

Hugs to ItyBty and Lilyflower, sorry about cd1




FF, that crazy friend of ours, gave me crosshairs today which I thought surprising. I would put them on cd15 at least because of the opks. I had three days of + opks (cd14,15,16) and I tested this AM it is hard to tell, it is close if nothing else. I just found some $tree opk tests under the sink in the bathrooom so I will try one of those later and hope it's neg. Otherwise I have four days of + opks... that can't be good (?) maybe my body just takes a long time to get rid of the LH. Thoughts anyone ?

Today is my last day of the paid fertility friend and I'm wondering if it's really worth it to pay for another month or (three). I'm leaning toward no. Anybody have any good reasons why somebody should get the premium membership (or whatever it is that they call it?)

Looking at your temps, I can see why FF gave you cross hairs. Were all 3 +s REALLY very positive? I'd probably have to take another OPK today if I had one. But then again, as a rule, once I get a clear +OPK, I stop testing.

Racecar- I dunno. I wonder that every three months.
