    Hi erinmaree Good luck to you this cycle and I do hope your BFP is just around the corner.
    It sure is quiet in here I have to agree.



    BG How are you doing hun? I hope everything is ok with you.

    I haven't been around for a few days as I took my sick PC in to get fixed and you wouldn't believe it but the computer shop was broken into on Monday and they stole my laptop aswell as 6 other computers being fixed along with 7 brand new monitors. So I'm waiting to see what the insurance company comes up with. I will try to pop in every now and then to catch up with you all when I get a chance at my in-laws.
    Not too much to report except I think I may have O'd this week and if so well I guess I'm in the tww again.And I'm due to see my specialist on the 8th March.
    Anyway I hope you are all ok and I'll pop back when I get a chance.

    Erinmaree -WELCOME - i hope that everything is going well for you on the clomid. this thread has become very quiet of late as so many of us have received the green light to move up to assited conception - but some of us still drop by to say hello and to offer support to those of you still on clomid - i really hope it's success ful for you!

    HI Mako - i so hope you're right and that you o'd this week - am really hoping for a BFP for you! i'm still unsure whether i managed to O after the cancelled IUI cycle, so i guess in my own way i'm in a TWW - had a very small amount of bleeding last night and thought AF might have shown up - but nothing since, so who knows what's going on - my body is determined to defy logic and do everything wrong, so it would be my luck that, when i've decided to take a break from TTC for the dental surgery, that my body would do what it should have been doing for the past 6 months!!!

    thanks so much for asking after me Mako - i'm struggling along at the moment. have had a few major drama's as you're aware, and came to the (very painful) conclusion yesterday that i'm not coping from an emotional standpoint. decided that, before i lost it completely, i was going to seek some help - so spoke to GP yesterday, and going to see a counsellor on Monday. i've been thinking for a while that i didn't feel "right" but couldn't pin-point why, so it's something of a relief to be taking a proactive approach to it - i figure if i can get on top of things without medication (GP suggested it yesterday, but i'd really like to keep medication to a minimum), i'll be able to face the TTC journey a lot more easily. DH has been amazingly supportive through it all (rang him in tears yesterday - again!), and surprisinginly, considering all the issues i've been having with work lately, my manager was brilliant - even going so far as to get me in touch with a work funded counselling team - can go to appointment on Monday on work time - so that takes a huge amount of pressure off. i guess i'm just looking forward to being able to get some of the stuff that's bugging me off my chest and being able to deal with it all - and from there, things should hopefully start looking up!

    oh yeah, just to add to everything else - well my laptop died last night - a very horrific situation considering i had all my photos from my hols and stuff on there - had a massive panic attack - it would start, but keys and mouse wouldn't work - spent ages trying to fix it myself, rang HP for help, found out that the ONLY way to fix it was to reformat the whole thing - eeek! was able to get it started in safe mode and transfer some of my life to a USB drive - but not all of it! took another four hours to get it all fixed - but is back to life now! yay!!! i can so sympathise with you about the loss of your computer Mako - it's like losing a part of you!

    Hi ladies how are we all. If you haven't noticed my ticker is back on day 1 woo hoo I got AF I don't think I have ever been so excited to have her show up. Today was going to be cycle day 80 so I am happy that it has come back down to 1 again. I have still been charting so know that I haven't O but am still glad that I have a period. I don't know if it was a total coincidence or not but I started taking Vitex about 3 1/2 weeks ago and it is supposed to help with regulating periods so who knows. I know they say that it usually takes months for these things to work but you never know. Lets just hope I don't have to wait another 79 days for another period.

    Mako - I hope you get a new PC soon and that you were right about O this month. Wouldn't it be just wonderful if you got Pg on a natural cycle. Good luck sweet girl I will be coming in soon to check on you and just remember I am always thinking of you and that your dreams will become a reality very soon.

    BW- I am sorry I haven't been around much to see how you were going but I am guessing from your sig that it is still a waiting game for you. Keep strong honey your time will come soon

    BG- Sorry to hear that you have been having a rough time of late but am glad to see you are going to go and talk to someone about it. I have at times thought about doing the same thing and I really hope that it helps you to overcome some things and move on it a positive frame of mind. Good luck hun.

    Erinmaree- Good luck with this cycle of clomid. Lets hope it is the only one you need. Like the other loves have said it has been a bit quiet in here with everyone moving up to assisted conception and I am having a break from TTC but we all pop in here to say hi so you will never be alone and we will always be here for support and assistance if needed. It almost feels for me like this thread is home as I was here for a while so I always come back in here first. Good luck again

    hey ktgirl! Woohoo for AF arriving! I know it seems so strange, but I've been there with the 80+ day cycles, so I know exactly how it feels.

    Me... Our first IVF cycle got cancelled when we discovered that on synarel I managed to grow a great big follicle on one ovary! Can't do it with clomid, but can do it with synarel! Trust me to do everything backwards. They gave me a trigger shot to make me ovulate and I go back on Tuesday to start again with the synarel - this time at twice the dosage as before. Hopefully our second attempt will have a better outcome than the first - at this stage I'll be happy just to get to EPU!

    Thanks for the welcome ladies!!

    Briggsy's Girl - Coming from experience I can tell you that you'll feel 110 times better after you've spoken with a counsellor! I had what DH is now calling a 'meltdown' last weekend and just cried for about 2 hours straight, got up on Monday morning and was able to squeeze in an appointment with a counsellor that day as she'd had a cancellation. I guess while nothing but that BFP will genuinely take the pain away totally speaking with the counsellor made me feel much better!! You'll be glad you did it!

    I'm really confused at the moment, I THINK I ovulated around Tuesday/Wednesday last week so I guess that puts me in the TWW. Will see what happens I guess.

    Thanks again for all the warm welcomes! It's nice to know there are other people around to share the journey with (even if it isn't a pleasant one)!

    Hi All

    KTgirl - so glad to hear that AF has finally shown up - at least your counter is back looking a little bit more normal - and it's an indication that at least something is going right with your body! sounds like your TTC break is working out ok for you.

    ErinMaree - i agree that the counselling thing is going to be helpful - even just admitting to myself that i was having an issue and actually having the guts to initiate ANY sort of help has been massively helpful. at first i felt like a bit of a failure, but then realised that i needed to do something and it was a positive step, which has been helpful in itself. speaking to the counsellor tomorrow - will be interesting to see how things pan out! had a pretty ordinary day on Friday - but i'm hoping tomorrow will be a positive start to the next phase of things!

    Welcome, Kristie, glad you could join us here.

    If there's one thing BB does well, it's support each other, so you've definitely come to the right place.

    Hi everyone!

    Sorry I've been gone for awhile. I've been trying not to think about things.

    Well, I ovulated on 50 mg of clomid. Thank goodness, because the 100 mg gave me really bad side effects -- scary visual issues. I had 2 follicles, which I was thrilled about. Last wednesday, the doctor did an IUI. So I'm 5 diui today. I have a bad feeling about this cycle though, for some reason though. I'm thinking if it worked, I'd be feeling something. I know you're not necessarily supposed to feel symptoms so soon, but a lot of my friends did. I'm preparing myself for another BFN...

    We're going to do 2 more cycles of clomid/ IUI, then move on to injectables/IUI. And then IVF, I guess. I'm getting really nervous about the costs that will all entail, but I'm trying not to think ahead, and take it one step at a time.

    You know, when I was younger, my "plan" was to finish having children by the time I'm 33 or 34. Well, I just turned 33 this past weekend, and it doesn't even look I'll be able to have 1 by that time. I know it doesn't help to think this way, but it does make me feel a little better to vent.

    Well, sorry to go on and on about myself. I've just been a little bit of a mess recently, and you guys are the only people who might understand how I feel. You know it's easier for me to deal with stuff when I'm on a break, but once I'm actively TTCing, I get so anxious/ depressed...

    Gosh I'm a total downer, aren't I??? SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know what you mean emmydee!

    Im 34 and have been TTC for 2 years, I thought Id be trying for my second now!

    Im really depressed and stressed today! I went for my BT yesterday and it was really low- which means the follicles arnt maturing like they should- ive been put on MORE drugs and I find out tommorow if my first IVF gets cancelled! Ive never had a problem with ovualtion etc etc- so I dont know whats going wrong! I feel like Ive wasted two months!

    Hi All,
    I hope you don't mind if I join in this forum.
    My name is Sam and I am TTC #1 with Clomid. We tried 50mg from CD5-9 and didn't ovulate. I am taking 10mg Provera at the moment and have two days left. Hopefully I won't have to wait long for AF - but I have heard it can take 14 days to arrive. When AF does eventually arrive I am going to take 100mg Clomid from CD5-9.

    On my first cycle I did have cramps though - which my FS said was a good sign. ANd I had a lot of EWCM on CD31 - which was totally bizarre. So I have no idea what my body is up to!!

    I think that counselling is awesome too. I see a psychiatrist and have been seeing her for about 7 years. SHe has really helped to change my life!
    This whole TTC journey is an extremely emotional one. On my first cycle of Clomid I was so emotional and then when it didn't work I was even worse. And the waiting is a nightmare - how do you guys cope?

    Thanks for listening. It is great to find ladies who know exactly what you are going through.
    SAM

    Hi Girls! I dont often find my way back in here because when we do find out what is happening with both of us, it looks like IVF/ICSI is the option we will have to take.

    Im taking Metformin and so far so good. Coming up to 2 weeks now. Had some abdominal cramping,hot flushes etc but thats all I have. Starting to increase my dose too.

    Kim -- I'm sorry you're feeling down! I have my fingers crossed that your appt tomorrow goes well, and you can go ahead with IVF. Keep us updated!

    Sam -- My first cycle of clomid on 50 mg didn't work either. I was so depressed. But i ovulated on 100 mg. It's just about finding the right combination for you!

    Hi Summer -- are you starting IVF soon?

    Default hello

    Hi Girls
    Welcome to all, I donít post much as I donít really know where I fit in, I donít take chlomid but I am in injectibles for ovulation induction.
    I was on 50mg chlomid but did not ovulate, my ovaries just did not respond. At the moment I am starting a new course of Gonalf injections tonight. I managed to ovulate last cycle for the first time in 4.5 years but did not result in a pregnancy. So really hoping that this one will be a lucky one.
    I hope we can all share some experiences and make the most of this forum to compare and discuss some issues that affect us.
