Me too, unlikely as it is! Thanks. Hope so. I'm not looking forward to getting back on meds for IUI. Clomid really messes me up - awful, horrible stuff.

If I make the positive a negative, FF moves my O-date to CD18. It's still there though. I'm not showing any ovulation symptoms now (at CD23); my normal cycle length without meds is 29-30 days (33-34...

Congratulations on the BFPs!!

FF thinks I ovulated a week ago so I guess I'm halfway through the 2ww and can be moved to Waiting to Know. I don't like the look of my BBT chart but we've had a hell...

I don't have a lot of faith in my doctor, TBH. I had to ask for Femara and she didn't have a lot of information; she pretty much Googled it while I was sitting there. She seems completely bewildered...

Question Tell me about your HSG!

After a few Clomid cycles that were perfectly ovulatory with no conception, it's finally time for an HSG to rule out the possibility of blockage. I've scheduled it for next week.

Has anyone had the Maya abdominal massage done? I have an appointment for that on Saturday and am not sure if it's a huge waste of time and money, or if it's actually a good idea.
