Planegreen- I had that spotting and it went away pretty quickly. It could be a late implantation bleed. Don't give up hope yet. Tomorrow is my second beta, so we'll help each other get through it.

The spotting stopped in the afternoon so hopefully you were right, it was just getting snuggled in.

My beta this morning was over 4000 hcg and 19.2 Prog. She said I'm "definitely pregnant" with nice, high numbers. Yay! Still praying it sticks. I go again Wednesday for the second beta.

Deborah, how did your appt go?

Mine went beautifully as well. My bHCG was 204 (up from 79) and my progesterone was at 71.21. Estradiol was at 139. so, threadkeeper (I forget who it is) you can move me to recent BFPs if you like. My guess date is September 4, 2013.

Hi ladies. Just wondering if I can join. I joined another December group but its not infertility. After starting clomid 4 years ago adding a divorce in the middle my DB and I are trying clomid. This is my first IUI with him but have done 4 in the past with my ex. I have pcos and was originally told I have a T shaped uterus but then MRI shows I do not have a T shape. I did 5 days of clomid and had 2 follicles 25mm and 19mm. Did an IUI last Thursday and I'm pretty sure I O'd on Friday which should mean I'm 4dpo. I have sore nipples and nausea which I read are common with clomid? Tonight I have a wicked headache. Anyone testing right after the new year? This has been such a hard journey I hope we all get BFP. BABY DUST TO ALL

TTC#1 Since March 2008, PCOS and possible T-shaped uterus, divorced DH after 4 IUIs, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, Currently with DB and bonus mom to his 3 children and our dogs Dexter and Morgan  grouphug.gifdog2.gif. Four more rounds of Clomid and IUI starting in December 2012 after trying naturally since June...

Yahoo! My nurse just called and my hcg numbers are up over 10,000. I think I am ready to be moved to recent BFPs as well. I am very excited by still cautious of course.

My guess date is August 29.

Congrats again Deborah!

Welcome Becky. Best of luck to you in this cycle. The symptoms are definitely side effects of Clomid.

Planegreen how long do the symptoms last? I'm 5dpo. Not really nauseous anymore but a little lightheaded and dizzy this morning cleaning. Felt 5 cramp like pains every couple seconds this morning. I was hoping it was implanting

Yay Planegreen! I hope some more of us are right behind you!

 

Welcome Becky. Clomid has a very long half life thus taking a long time to clear your system. Those same symptoms are also a good indicator that your Progesterone levels are high. Are you having a blood draw for Progesterone levels in a few days? Most likely the nausea and dizziness are from both the Clomid and your progesterone levels at this point since implantation should be taking place within the next couple days. I hope that your symptoms continue and become a bfp :) I'm currently the dpo as you are.

Yay so excited to have a cycle buddy. No I'm not having blood drawn. Dr said to call with bfp or when period starts. I'm just taking it easy today and tomorrow. I feel a little crampy but nothing big.

Oh yes, Becky I totally agree with Sila. For me the side effects of Prog. were way worse than Clomid. Clomid gave me the symptoms that made me feel like I was pregnant every month, only to find out I wasn't. Progesterone on the other hand, made me feel dizzy and drunk for about 2 hours each time I took one. It was awful. I switched to vaginal progesterone because I couldn't handle that. With the vaginal, I no longer had the drunk feeling thank goodness.

Planegreen what I'm confused about is this round I only took progesterone to get AF I took it for 7 days Nov 21-28. So is this natural progesterone in my body. I have PCOS so I don't even know what's normal. I am starting to feel stabbing vag pains. Lol. That has been normal with AF. Who knows!!

Becky- I always feel implantation pain. Then again, after IVF, my RE's office requires 3 full days of bed rest, so I didn't have much else to pay attention to at that time. Thanks DarlaWoods!
