I say POAS tomorrow if AF isn't here, that is a very reasonable day to test.
: I hope, I hope, I hope
I am so excited to hear you are going to the dr tomorrow, I hope you have a positive experience and maybe even get some new info.
No I haven't tried clomid yet. I had asked my dr about it and he said if I wanted to try it I could, but he would probably want to try progesterone suppositories first (I am using the natural progesterone cream pro-gest right now, it's less a third of the dosage of the suppositories). He was the one who mentioned that if you are ovulating clomid could actually decrease your chances. That was the first I'd ever heard of that, I always had read that if you O on your own you could take it to achieve a more robust ovulation and to lengthen your luteal phase. BTW I know you can't take clomid with vitex, and I probably wouldn't take it with other herbals either unless you know what you are doing.Tricia
, I wanted to backup what Lilyflower said about it not being enough time yet to think there is some sort of problem. I just recently read that the 20-25% chance thing is based on people in their 20's of proven fertility... and chances fall to about 10% a month for couples in their early 30's (which is where dh & I are).

When we ttc #1, our dd, it took 10 months of trying to finally get her, and there were no apparent problems. I was ready to give up. But say our chances then were 10% it figures we'd need 10 months. Maybe we just need a little longer now (all of us, as we get older)
I hope that helps
! Welcome to the thread, I hope you get the newbie luck on you and don't stay long Chrissy !
how good to see you ! I have been thinking of you and Secretlytrying
and wondering how you are. So how are you ? are you like 12 wks now ??? Don't forget to dust the crap out of us, we are due for some luck here
Well I put a pregnancy poll on my chart because it's the nicest chart I think I've ever had and I've never put up a poll before. I am lovin my warmer temps but I have to remember that they are just numbers, they don't actually determine if we are pg. So much for not getting my hopes up eh ? I showed my chart to DH and he took an interest in it for a change. The next day when it dipped (8 dpo) he turned to me, looking worried, and said it went down, what does that mean ? is it bad ? He NEVER asks questions like that or looks at my chart, I think he is finally starting to catch up to me in terms of impatience with the ttc.
I've had a few good omens this cycle, i am afraid to post them here and jinx myself.
: So one way or another I'll tell you about them next week, feel free to remind me if I forget and you are curious.
Yesterday we went to a rollerskating b-day party, it was so fun. It's been over 10 yrs since I went skating, I forgot how fun it is. There was a pregnant woman there, very pregnant, she is due in like a month, and all I could do was smile and think... well at least I get to go rollerskating
