hey, 8dpo here and temps are good just playing the waiting game. Congrats on your ++++ and thanks for the dusting :-)

dh doesn't need surgery, but he is having physical therapy for the next month so his knee will heal faster.

Glad you Oed If you conceive this cycle you'll always be able to use your dh's pain while bding as guilt material/proof of love with your dc. :LOL OMG that is definitely something my mother would come up with.
I'm continuing to send you positive energy. Pun intended.

Thanks ButterflyMA

just wondering, did you skip a cycle between the clomid? I'm thinking if this cycle is a bust, I'll do a natural cycle next month. Don't want to be all hormonal during the holidays. And I think a month rest between feels right.

What do you think?

I didn't take a break between my 2 cycles, but I felt okay on the hormones and I knew if I stopped to think about taking or not taking the drugs, there'd be a chance I'd wait another 6+ months to do them again. But, of course, that's me. You've gotta do what is right for you. Being the wise woman you are you know what that is.

My vote: "no" to this cycle being a bust! :LOL

Arduinna,

I have no relevant experience with Clomid.

I do however have a vote for your following your intuition on this, you are the best expert on your own body, and you've shown a lot of wisdom so far in figuring out how to make this work for you.

Also I agree with Butterflyma, I vote that this cycle shouldn't be a bust.

Thanks Adina,

we are going to do natural this cycle. I want to at least skip a month between, especially after reading about REs finding increased issues with lining from doing clomid 3 cycles in a row with no break.

Adina, I'm sure your fine now. The stuff I read says that the lining goes back to normal after a month or two of stopping the clomid.

Thanks gonnabemom :-)

Arduinna I'm sorry Perhaps the clomid will have gotten your hormones kick started for this coming natural cycle. Your babytime is coming
