I am still in my first cycle while having used clomid and prevestor. On days 11-13 of my cycle I tested positive with ovulation kits. On days 19-20 of my cycle I had spotting. It freaked me out a little. Didn't know why I was spotting. It was dark looking most of the time. I stopped after 2 days though. Today is day 24 of my cycle. I haven't had any more spotting or anything. My back has been hurting the past 3-4 days, but I think I pulled it while painting.... so I think it's most likely unrelated to my cycle. I went to the doctor on day 21 of my cycle to test for verification that I ovulated. I'm wondering how long I have to wait to pee on a stick. I'm dying to know if I'm pregnant, but I don't know if I can test before my missed period..... It's so disheartening to get a negative result on a pregnancy test, but yet at the same time it is all I can think about while I sit here waiting. Could I test today and have there be a chance of it sensing the hormone if I am pregnant? Or should I wait till Sunday. It would be day 29 of my cycle. What should I do??????

I decided to test this morning, and it was negative. I don't know if I'm just not pregnant or if I tried too soon :( This just sucks.

Hi cp1538,

 

I just wanted to tell you I am in my first Clomid cycle too. I took 50mg on days 3-7 and FF says I O'ed on day 17.  I'm 12 dpo now and took a test yesterday and it was negative. Talk about devastating! So I am RIGHT there with you. I am having cramping and have for the last couple days so I'm hoping that's implantation, but of course I'm not sure. I'm scared to test again because I have been in such a bad mood today from testing negative yesterday.  :(  I'm on day 29 today.

 

This does suck.  I just wanted to say you are not alone.  I hope that both of us just tested early.  There's nothing more I want than a baby and I'm going to be devastated if I'm not pregnant now (I know you probably feel the same way).


((HUGS!!)) 


J, mom to my baby girl born January 22, 2012!  babygirl.gif

Thanks adorable!!!!! That meant a lot to me! It's so hard to not feel alone in this! You're words were an encouragement to me! I hope we both just tried too soon!!!!!!!!! Today is day 27 for me.... I have decided not to test again. If I don't start my next cycle by 32 then I am supposed to get a blood test to see. I am totally there with you on being in a horrible mood after something like this! I just want to cry and scream all at the same time. It takes me a couple of days to get out of that funk....
