Crimson! I'm here just kinda reading what everyone has to say and wishing I was on clomid already. Kinda got down a little because we got the SA results and although things were not terribly bad our doctor still wants them to be better so now he has to see a urologist. Then he had to go out of town for the next three weeks and won't be back until the 23rd but the good thing is he will see the doctor on the 25th. I have no idea what they are going to do for him to make his situation any better but I do hope they can do something. So maybe we can start clomid in November but who knows so keep your fingers crossed girls : /

When your doctor put you on Clomid, did they talk about multiples? Also, what dose did you use?

I guess my doctor (because of my cycle history) didn't make me wait a year to put me on meds! MAN! I think I would just DIE!!!

How many DPO where you before you got your BFP!?!?!

Thanks for the insight hun! Keep us posted on how you're doing with your little one!!


Sorry it's taken me so long to answer lol...i've been in lala land at work lately. Thank you for the congrats!!! I was put on 50mg at first and raised to 100mg after doing 2 cycles of 50mg with no results...then i did like 4 rounds on 100mg before he refered me to my RE. My RE told me when we started that he might put me on Metformin but ended up not having to.

I was 10dpo when i got my first BFP on a FRER but it was very faint, i was totally FREAKED thinking that i was going to lose the baby and did start bleeding a little bit right before i hit 6 weeks. I went straight to the hospital and they did an ultrasound. Everything was okay and the fact that they found a heart beat made them feel better about it but there was a little bit of blood that was between my uterus and the placenta but it's absorbed into my body now and baby girl is doing really good!!! I go in tuesday for my 30 week appointment and me and DH start our birthing classes this monday! I'm really looking forward to it again! (THis is our first child together my first DD was from my first marriage and she was a BCP baby! So no problems having her...that's why i had trouble accepting secondary infertility)

He didn't know why, but i think it's because i needed more hormone help than what the Clomid could offer me. I ended up having to use a combo of Femara and an injection shot (i can't remember my doses...but i can go back to the march infertility thread to see)

The doctor's said that my body kinda got "use" to the hormones and they just would stop working so they were changing me out every 3 months to keep me on track. I took them everyday at the same time and we used back up or just didn't DTD when they were changing me out ....so i have NO idea!!! They even changed my birth control while i was pregnant and didn't know it!!!! (I was mad too because they didn't do a pg test in the office they just put me in a room, the doctor came in, and he handed me another scrip after listening to what i had to say!!!)

CrimsonTideMom- Sorry I went MIA there for a while. I got busy at work & home. Anyways, you should move back down here. Alabama is AWESOME.lol.
Then we really could be close cycle buddies. Having you on here is great too though! Lol.
I am SO SORRY you lost your job! I hope everything is okay!
I hope we both get our BFP's & we can move on to a different board. If not, at least we have each other.
What CD are you on? I am on CD29 & am supposed to call if AF doesn't show tomorrow!

Hi AA!

I know I wish we could move there!! Today is CD31 for me... All my tests have been BFN's... I keep taking one each morning. So we'll see what tomorrow brings. Today it felt like I had AF cramps... so, we'll see what tomorrow brings. When AF comes, it's not really cramps that I get, it's more like my ovaries are tugging or pulling away from my body... It's like a straining feeling... Does that make sense? My Luteal Phase is 12 days long, so I should start my period Saturday.
Which sucks... cause Saturday, we're going downtown to watch Alabama play football. We should have a great time, so if AF does show her ugly face, hopefully it won't put too much of a downer on the party!!
You'll be the first person I contact if I get my BFP!!!
I hope AF stays FAR FAR away from both of us!!!

Girl!! Have you done any HPT's yet??? I have 6 from the dollar store sitting upstairs calling my name and begging me to pee on them!

C- Oh Lord if I have ANY tests at home I pee on them, so I never buy them. Lol. I learned my lesson a long time ago.
I haven't taken a test yet, but today is CD30 & I called the nurse & she gave me the go ahead to take a HPT. So I am going to *try* to hold out until Monday, but I am probably going to buy a test tonight!

I am so jealous you get to watch the game Saturday. I hope you have a blast.

I really, really hope AF stays FAR away from us for at least 9 months!

AA - I hope Alabama can come back in this game. It's THAT sad that I'm now on the internet on my phone AT THE GAME!

But only cause I wanted to tell you I got TWO BFP's this morning!!!

Girl... I just cried and cried... It's not faint, but it's light. I'm only 12DPO today, so hopefully it will get stronger.
I'm supposed to start my period today, cause my Luteal phase is only 12 days long.

BUT... I think I O'd a day later than FF says... so I might still start my period tomorrow...?

I'm still having cramps... or that tugging feeling.

We'll see what tomorrow morning brings!!

GIRL... please!!! Go buy those HPT's from the $$ store already! I only have two $ store tests left and one FRER left. So, I'm saving the FRER for Monday or Tuesday so I can get a nice dark line on it!

I really hope my BFP's get darker tomorrow and you get your BFP also!!

I'll be there in Alabama in April for A-day... so if we get our BFP's together we'll definatly have to do some tall shopping together!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for both of us!!!

Sorry, mama's don't mean to thread-crash, here, but I have conceived w and w/o Clomid and while at and above and even below target weight... so I hope what I have to offer could help:

CrimsonTide: (and everyone ttc!) I highly highly recommend the book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. You said something about waiting for a positive OPK to dtd-- this is almost always TOO LATE! Most women get preg from bd days before O! Timing is everything! As soon as you have wet CM (even before EW, but wetter than creamy) you should dtd every other day until your temp shift c: blessings and I will think bfp thoughts for all of you

I am saying this in the most loving and supportive way possible bc I have btdt on ttc while overweight: I was always told that O often returns without drugs and that drugs like clomid work better (or at lower doses, thus less side effects) if I would drop even as little as 5-10# (I was around 80# over my goal) and keep it off , or keep losing slowly (not too quickly, as that can be detrimental to ttc) and I would get SO offended, so hurt. I thought the dr was trying to guilt me into meeting weight goals before they would help me! Then, I gave up ttc and just thru other lifestyle changes (not really trying to lose weight) I did lose a few # and did conceive w/o drugs. So, the dr had a point, and it did happen for me just as they said-- they were not trying to be ugly about my weight.

Side effects on clomid-- I was mood-swinging pretty high and low! I felt scared and threatened about my health for no good reason! I even thought I was having an allergic reaction to the clomid! Ach! (in my defense, I am allergic to most of the rx I have ever had, LOL)

Hoping for babies soon for you, mamas!

Thanks everyone!!
We are SO excited! I think the clomid helped us time ovulation more than helped the follicles...? Princess let me know how things are going and when you're gonna take your first round!
Today is 14dpo for me and cd35. All my dollar store tests keep having the test line show up but its not as dark as I'd hoped for. So I took an FRER this morning and the line showed up nice and dark... and before the 3 minute time window...
So that made me feel 100% better!
Symptoms in the last two weeks have been sneezing (I mean all the time, I guess its cause I'm more sensitive to smells now), gas all the time, constipation, and hungry like its no bodys business! The past couple days I have finished my meal while my husband was only half finished with his.... he said Whoaaa cowgirl slow it down!! I said and I'm still hungry! But I'm gonna enjoy eating while I can because that morning sickness is gonna set in soon and I won't be eating anything.... if my husband comments again about me eating I'm gonna tell him to pipe it down... that this mama bear is getting ready for a 3 month hibernation and I won't be able to eat!
AA - how's it going girl!?!?

Ah Crimson I'm so happy for you and your hubby! Well I started taking the soy isoflavones this month because my hubby still has to see the urologist at the end of the month but I just couldn't wait and do nothing. So for now I'm trying this and will see what happens this month plus I might have a change of insurance so we still have some things to work out. This was your first round on clomid right? Well I really am happy for you and I hope you enjoy every bit of it because you deserve it...

Thanks Princess!

Yes, this was my first round of Clomid 50mg... I told my DH the other day, I think the Clomid helped the timing more than it helped the eggs! Eitherway, IT WORKED! We are so excited!

Last night we went out to eat, and my dinner came back up before we left...

I'll keep you posted on any other symptoms so you'll be the most prepared!!!

THANKS AGAIN!

Princess! Sorry I haven't posted in a while! This morning-noon-night sickness is killing me! No Doctor's appointment yet. My insurance went with my job I lost...

I'm frantically looking for another job but my husband only wants me working part time.

AA - how's it going??

Hopefully I can get to the doctor in a couple of weeks or so. I keep taking HPT's everyday... the lines keep getting darker and darker! I guess until I go to the doctor and they confirm it, I'll keep taking the HPT's to confirm my doubts! Tomorrow should start my 6th week of pregnancy. I have all the symptoms everything says I should. I can't even wear some of my pants already!

Good luck to you girls!!! I'm praying for you!

Hi Princess and everyone else out there!

 

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted! September turned out to be our lucky month! I almost immediately started with morning sickness... but all day long! I've been in a hard battle with it. I lost 4 pounds in 3 days due to vomitting. I went to the doctor at the end of October because of the sudden weight loss, and they did an ultrasound and it's TWINS!!! I just started crying I was so happy!

Since then, the stomach issues have continued, I just got out of the hospital. It's like I have to learn how to eat all over again! They did another ultrasound in the hospital and they are both healthy and fine. I go at the end of November for another ultrasound. Right now I'm 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant. They both have their own sacs and are both measuring the same length so they were fertilized on the same day.

If I ovulated on time (which I didn't) I would be further along. I'm glad we stuck with doing the OPK's until we got a positive. Those really helped and it helped to take the Clomid to get the timing down pat.

I know twins are a possibility with Clomid, but it's a small possibility. So I guess we're in the small percentage who gets pregnant with twins on Clomid. I only took one round of 50mg! Also, when I ovulated, I clearly ovulated from my left ovary. My ovary hurt all day and some of the next day, I could definately tell (physically, without the OPK's) that I was ovulating. The only weird thing is I didn't have one bit of implantation bleeding even with two eggs implanting???

 

Thank God we're pregnant with Twins and thank God they are healthy.

 

Good luck to everyone out there!

Crimson - I know this is late, but I just wanted to say CONGRATS!!  And thank you for sharing your story.  I start my first round of Clomid tomorrow, and it gives me hope to read stories like yours.  Best of luck to you!!
