Hi all I am comming over from The One Thread. Dh and I have been ttc # 2 since 6/2006. I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS. We are starting 50mg of clomid this cycle and hopeing for the best. If we do get preggo this month the due date would be 5 days away from dd bday but its ok I wouldnt be complaining. I hope to get some extra support from the wonderful ladies on this thread because lately this whole thing seems to be getting harder than before! Good luck and dust to everyone.

eh we don't think the dose is the problem. Talked to my doc, and now I'm kicking my butt for not using the prometrium instead of the natural prog i'm using now. We'll see what my levels are tomorrow from the prog test, but it's possible that i have a rare lp condition where the problem isn't with the follicular phase, but rather the lp(usually lp problems are due to issues before O). Which would explain why with the chemical in jan I was spotting with a prog level of 15. I have an appt with him friday to discuss next steps, but we're leaning towards 100mg clomid, plus prometrium next month, and probably some u/s to check things. Damn.

Nicole---we can be sorta cycle buddies....I'm not quite 10 days from O, but close. Sadly, if I really am that far off, we'll miss it again. I am so frustrated that we keep missing it. I feel like we SAY we're trying, but we're not really trying, y'know??

No personals yet... I've been so busy I haven't been able to check in. Monday I was stuck away from a computer all day at work, then had the orientation for my puppy, Benny's training class until late. Yesterday I had an all-day meeting/presentation in Maryland, bleh. I'm glad to have a nice mellow day ahead of me today where I can work from home and walk the dogs in the nice spring weather. I could use the stress relief! :
I'm so confused by the o day on my chart. If I discard my cd14 temp (as I have right now), FF sets o day as cd12. If I put the temp back in, it sets cd14 as o day. Which do you think I should go by?

I had some bad stomach unpleasentries that messed up my attempt to poas. I barely managed enough pee after the "episode" to register on the test. And, of course, it was bfn. I didn't bother charting it. I have no idea why I got sick.

I need to go back and read so I can do personals...

I like the idea of the 14th being your O day, but either way your chart looks so pretty :

Yay-a cycle buddy! I'm debating on whether or not to use the OPKs this cycle. I put them away after the holidays in order to squash my obsessiveness, but I might bring them back out again. Still deciding, I guess. DH and I are still in the "homecoming honeymoon" phase, so I'm sure we'll have lots of attempts this cycle.

stephanie, i'd guess cd 12 too. I'd had a few times where the fertile cm extended in to the lp. Good luck! I could only DREAM of a chart like yours.


My temp went back up this morning, but i bet it's because I doubled up on my progesterone when I started spotting. Still spotting steadily too. Kind of a maroonish, like usual. I *hopefully* get my prog test results today.

Welcome to hlnmommy! I think we were in the TOT together a while back.... Hope you won't be here long for good reason.

punquin - tough call on O date. I like the temp jump from CD12 to CD13 but you had fertile CM through CD14. Hmm...

My progesterone was 5.8. After doubling my clomid and adding progesterone. The naturopath had me start on thyroid meds on cd11, and said I'd be able to tell if I was getting too much based on the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. I haven't had any symptoms. So I called my ob(again, they must be annoyed!) and asked them to fax an order for a thyroid test to my local lab today, with the hopes the results will be in for my appt with him on friday. I told the tech to pray that the results were bad. She looked at me like I was crazy.

So basically, if it isn't my thyroid, I'm screwed. My problem isn't O'ing, its getting to implantation without having spotting. And there isn't a whole lot of treatment other than the clomid/prog route out there.

Jill- Do they think you are totally out this month with the spotting. Your chart looks like it had a implantation dip. I know lots of women who have had spotting even flow around the time of their periods and still were PG and went on to have a healthy baby. I wouldn't give up just yet. Your temps are still up and there is always hope till the hag shows.

I just wanted to pop on and say HI to everyone and spread some dust
I had a U/S this week at 6w 2d and there is a baby and yolk sack but the midwife says the heartbeat was slow. She said it could be that it is just early and the HB hasn't gotten up to speed yet. i researchd on the internet and just made myself worry more. It said tht a slow HB at 6-7 weeks is indicaive of fetal demise in 70% of the cases. I am going back next week to recheck. I really hate this part and the not knowing

Good luck to everyone

When I was on Clomid I felt *really* PMS-y off and on all month. I'd be fine for a few days, and then Bam! I'd turn into a wailing banshee, yelling at everything. I'm glad to be off it.

Jen - I am keeping my : for you. I remember how horrible it was back in November when they saw the sack but no baby at 6 weeks. That week of waiting before the second u/s was pure hell. Of course, my results weren't so good, but I am sending you every bit of sticky baby dust I can muster up!


Jill - I agree that you aren't out of it just yet! I hope you get some answers soon. I know for me, finding out something is wrong is often better than never figuring something out. Because then, at least you know what steps to take.

I am finally nearing the end of the 2ww. I am feeling crampy on and off, and I'm actually doing a pretty good job of staying positive that the cramps could be implantation (now that I know that is what happens when I get pg). I'll just have to wait and see, since I'm not sure if I am 12 dpo of 14...



Nevermind... I am starting to spot and the cramps are getting worse. I'm out.

jen, i'm sorry about what you learned. But that means that 30% of babies are just fine. Be strong! btw, got the package, thank you so much! If I'm not pg and my thyroid is low, we may take next month off for a break from the clomid, and your stuff will come in very handy!

No, technically I'm not out yet. But it's hard to buy into the implantation bleeding thing with my history, you know? Plus, my temps aren't all that high. I did double up on the progesterone when the spotting started, and that could have caused the temps to go back up. The spotting is browner now, but that could mean anything. I'm not testing until sat. probably, it's the day we conceived my wonderful dd two years ago.

omg you guys. Ok, here's what happened.
I woke up this morning, 11dpo, temp was 97.7(again), went to pee, realized i was nauseous, sent dh after crackers, checked for spotting(was none, yay!) and decided to poas for the heck of it.

Did a $ tree first:

then an internet strip:
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o...y/IMG_1169.jpg
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o...y/invertic.jpg


what do you guys think? We're so worried it will be a chemical because my progesterone was only 5.8, and that might mean the lining was bad.

Jill, I can barely see it, but I see it! What looks promising to me is that it's a fat (wide) line. Since you are 11dpo, I'd definitely keep testing with FMU for the next few days. Easy for me to say, I know!

Can you call your doc's office and get a blood test?
