    Hi again

    Thanks Keli.

    I think it has to do with my age (the shortness of trying clomid). I actually just got a letter from my FS which says I have "surprisingly good AMH and FSH". I dont know a lot about this but I think it is good.

    LOL I am starting to feel really old all of a sudden.



    In answer to your other questions, I am not sure about the blood tests. I am having a scan on Wednesday so I guess it depends on what shows up there.

    Unfortunately, due to the fact the FS says I have "latent PCOS" as opposed to "frank PCOS" she wont put me on metformin. Apparently my blood sugar is too normal!!! lol. At least something is!!!

    The statement about the perfect partner thing was in relation to Bec's signature which refers to her DH as "perfectly perfect in every way" (or something like that!!) I was just asking her where did she find him!! lol Mine is perfect in a lot of ways but I am not sure in EVERY way....he has a couple of small faults!!!!!! lol

    n2l- he's pretty good in most ways, and as healthy as a horse! Not sure how I got so lucky, but I'm sure every one of you has a great bloke too!

    [QUOTE=Keli;2427309]
    Liz, oh as wonderful as our DHís can be they just donít get it sometimes do they? Hope today is going better for you hun. Hey whatís modified cycle all about? My sister is about to start taking 150mg but so far no good on Clomid, so Iím keen to know what her next steps may be? Any info would be great. PS: I LOVE your anniversary on your ticker, I thinks itís very special, totally understand about a higgledy piggledy cycle.
    QUOTE]

    I know Keli, I think it's because they aren't going through what we are physically. And yes I had a better day, except for 23 crazy kids driving me nuts lol.A Modified Cycle is similar to IUI. Once AF starts I have to take 50mg of clomid on days 2-6 (to get things started), then on day 7 or 8 I go back to the FS for an ultrasound and to start FSH injections. I then continue to have the injections every morning and to go in to the FS for u/s and BT's to monitor the size of the follies and how many there are (any more than 3 and they will cancel the cycle). Once they are 18mm I then have a "trigger shot" of HCG which should make me ovulate. The next day they usually do artificial insemination, but as my DH has no issues, we have to DTD that night as O will occur the next day (after the HCG injection).The wait is then on for 2 weeks and then have to do a POS test to see if Iím UTD. The FS said that there is a 10%-20% chance of getting a BFP and a 20% chance of multiple births.
    I hope this has helped you and I havenít babbled on too much, but there are lots to do when AF finally shows herself.

    Hello n2l and welcome! I hope your stay here is short :-) This is a great forum full of awesome women who are supportive and very knowledgeable.

    For your question about PCOS and clomid, I have PCOS and was very lucky to conceive on the second cycle (25mg CD2-6). I didn't have any scans so I am not sure if she would give you an injection I only took clomid and had CD21 progesterone test.

    Sounds like you have a good specialist, perhaps you could give her offices a call to confirm the processes you will be going through - no doubt it is common for people to forget... my specialist made notes as he was talking and gave them to me (luckily, as I know I would have forgotten too).

    Hi to everyone else, seems like it is that time of the month GL with catching the eggs FX we have a big round of BFP's coming soon :-)

    Thanks Pumpgirl!

    You are right, I will just ask again on Wednesday when I go for a scan.
    I promise you I am not stupid! I think once she said IVF and made the first appointment for six weeks time, everything else kind of washed over me. I didnt expect IVF so soon. To be honest I dont think I (we) had even really thought about it properly, hoping - maybe even assuming - that the clomid, etc would be all it would take.
    Oh well, nothing to do but wait and see.

    Something a little different though. Not to share too much information (sorry if it is!!) we DTD last night (practice run ) and, while not painful, I was very uncomfortable in the ovary area. Even this morning I have a dull ache in my lower back, pelvic region.
    Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a sign of anything particular??

    The first day of my last AF was 26 July so I guess this makes me CD 13.

    My scan is CD 17.

    Anyway, I hope everyone is having a good day and that you are taking time out to enjoy the lovely things about life - no matter how small

    Take care

    Excellent news hun. Best of luck

    AFM - Nothing to report personally. I have just found out my gf husband has been cheating on her since March & they have seperated. The really sad thing is, she is 22ish weeks pg & it is an IVF bubs. He would have been cheating either when they started IVF of just after. What an a$$hole. She is on her way over now for some girly time & to get out of the house - she doesn't want to stay at her house

    Hi everyone!
    I've been away for a few days to Aberdeen with a gf. It was so good to get away and have a laugh without having to think about ttc. Looks like there's been a lot of activity on here and loads of new members. Hiya to everyone! I only have 1 more week of holidays before heading back to work - boo! AF finally arrived after 39 very long days but it is here so we can get back on the Clomid rollercoaster. Currently on CD 2 BEC x. Hope you are all well.

    Hi Ladies,
    Ive been so busy this week and I havent had time to catch up with everything on here.
    Firstly welcome to the newbies, hope your stay is short and sweet!
    Secondly AF is still MIA but Im not pg I done a test yesterday just to be sure and it was negative. On the brightside I see my new fs on thursday and at least I can show him that my cycle is as bad as I told him last month (He didnt believe my charting skills I miss my old fs) Anywho its great to see everyone is still hanging in there with their ups & downs. Sorry for the short post but my bed is calling me. Nighty-night ladies

    Looks like everyone is having a busy weekend which is good to see.

    Rhi what an a**hole, for them (her) to go through all of that and then find out now that he is a cheating b**s**d. lots of chocolate and tissues.

    Porsche how exciting, best of luck for this week ahead of you.

    AFM nothing to report still and I am getting tired of waiting, I have been having bad period cramps both in my front and lower back and it is driving me crazy wondering AF is going to start. Other than that I am having a pretty good weekend spending some time with my nieces goign to the park and stuff. Hope everyone is having a good weekend sorry about that little rant, just over all the waiting.

    Liz & Risris: Sorry to hear still no AF! Hopefully she will arrive in the next few days and you can begin again!
    Jules- What a b#####d! I hope your friend is ok.
    Porsche- SOOOO Much good luck for Tuesday. Let us know how you go. 12 follies is awesome too!
    Clamgee- welcome back, glad you've had a nice holiday. Hope this cycle is yours!
    n2l: how are you going? hopefully the SE aren't giving you too much grief! GL for your scan on Wednesday.

    Hi everyone!

    AFM: I've just been to visit some friends who have just had a baby and they let me hold him for an hour, which was lovely, although I have a very sore arm now! He was so tiny and perfect it made me want another one so bad. I was very proud of myself becasue I didn't cry, m/c number 2 would have been due about now, and I was worried I wouldn't be able to handle it, but I guess we all surprise ourselves sometimes!
    Hubby has been reading up on IVF (just in case!) and he's very concerned that it will be painful for me. I told him that compared to labour I'm sure it will be a walk in the park! Nice that he cares though.
    I should probably go to bed, I'm exhausted!
    Nighty night

    Morning Ladies,

    N2L, I too am like Pumpgirl and only had CD21 progesterone tests to monitor my cycles, so sorry but I can’t be of much assistance here. Don’t stress about forgetting what the specialist say, there can be soooo much information to take in sometimes, the only reason we know what we’re on about is because we have been doing this for quite some time. GL. PS: Please don’t feel old at all, you’ll fit in just great here, age is only as old as you feel. As for the pain, could you be O’ing? Maybe it was perfect timing that you DTD, FX.

    Porshce, yey yey yey hun that is perfect. Oh I am sooooo excited for you. Let us know how you go tomorrow.

    Oh Jules, I have shivers down my spine. Your poor girlfriend, that is just horrible. I hope you girl time was good for her. I can’t believe men can be such a**holes, what a jerk seriously. Please give her a hug from me.

    Clamgee, nice to hear from you again. GL on Clomid this round, FX.

    Bec, oh good girl, what amazing strength you showed not crying with the bubs. You truly are incredible! That must have been extremely hard. Good on your hubby for looking into IVF, mine could not have been less interested if he tried when we were looking. You’ve got a great man there, he he!

    Xxoo

    Hi Ladies,

    Welcome to the N2L, we hope your stay is short and sweet!
    Hi To everyone else and sorry for minimal persies! There is heaps to catch up on!!

    Uhm ... who was it that asked about the Prog levels? I think, from what i can remember, its what keeps your temp up, and sustains the preg, and when the levels drop, it signals the body to shed the lining, hence AF. So if you were having worries about low levels your doc can give you some prog tablets, or suppositries. (sp?)

    Annnnnnd i think it was Rhi that mentioned about her friend being cheated on! What a lying dirty scummy pig! I cant believe that, especially since they were going through ivf!! to your friend!

    I had a good time in victor visiting my friend, i am on CD18 today, i think i O'd on the w.e because i had some pains, but i have noticed they have not been as bad as round 1, but my hot flushes have gotten much much worse this round. I keep getting them! Very frustrating!

    I have a CD21 blood test on thursday to check if ovulation occured.

    Anyway, best be off and catch up on my work!

    Hope everyone else is going ok!
