    HI all

    Ltl Panda - could be interesting trying to BD when you're feeling like that! hope you've had some relief and get some decent BD in there - and that you catch that little eggie



    as for me - appointment with surgeon today bought good results. finally got the last of the stitches removed (most of them fell out last night by themselves, but two or three were very termpermental) - seems one of them was impinging on a nerve near my nose and causing a lot of my discomfort - within half hour of having it taken out, the pressure started to ease. i'm still sore and swollen, but feeling so much more positive about it now. i was pretty confident it was nothing major, but having confirmation that everything was benign was such a relief! apart from pain killers, which i'm gradually weaning myself off, i'm taking nothing else now, so might be making myself a call to the FS tomorrow to see when we kick all of this off. enough of this waiting stuff - time to get back on the TTC merry go round!!!

    Congratulations Mako. Its stories like this that keep me going

    Good news the hot flushes are going away. Although DH has been commenting that I feel warm! Ive noticed that my tummy cramping is affected by the naughty types of food I eat. It usually the day after ive had something I shoudnt have. More of an inncentive to eat all the right foods. Work has been stressful! I think I should win the lottery so I can not have to work, ok work and just do 3 days a week. That would suit me just fine.

    I think the most exciting thing is that i think i have oed at cd14! Ive been anywhere from cd16 to cd20 something.

    Hells Bells! There are so many different faces in here since I was here last!!! Hi to the "old" girls and hi to the "new" ones too! Bear with me as I catch up with all your news and backgrounds.

    Quickly about me.... I was in this thread mid to late last year. I had 3 cycles of clomid and then got a +ve pg. I carried till 12 weeks and then had a miscarriage in late January. VERY disappointing to say the least. Once pg, I am on a heap of drugs to support and seeing as they worked the pg before and I have a DS, I figured that they would work again. Not so. The last m/c I had was #7 (so I have been pg 8 times).

    Anyway, after a D&C and some time off, I went to see the FS today and I am back on clomid for about 3 cycles. If nothing happens then I am back to IVF (I have also been down that track before too). This time, the FS has added oestrogen tablets to take in conjunction with the clomid to help things along a bit. I am also taking clomid from CD2 - 6 instead of 5 - 9 like last time.

    AF is a week or so away atm, so things will be gearing up soon.

    Good luck to all of you in here. Congrats to those that have gotten BFP in the past little while.

    oh Hayseed, I have been so worried about you. I had no idea you had a m/c until someone told me last week. I am so sorry you lost your little one but am full of hope for you.

    hello all
    Hayseed darling what a bumpy road, I wish you all the very best on the new cycle of TTC
    sunny_summer, o you have an intollerance to something? I find that when I have anything that is a carb i baloon the next day.

    briggsy's girl, i am glad your stitches are out and you are more positive (well you sound positive) good luch with TTC....

    Well I am still sore I did ovulate yesterday, my temperature has increased by 3 degrees.
    So I am happy I ovulated, that is another mile stone for us. I have an appointment with my specialist and hopefully we will get the ball rolling for IVF.

    Well I hope everyone else is ok, and hope to hear from you soon.

    Hayseed, I'm so sorry to hear your news.

    For what feels like the first time in forever... I finally got the right blood test result! I passed! I start puregon tomorrow! It's exciting to finally be moving forward at last.

    Hayseed - I'm sorry to see you back here again too, I had no idea. I've been following your TTC journey for years now, so we'll have to get you moving out of here again soon *hugs* What strength of clomid are they starting you on this time?

    ATryingTime - Sorry I took so long to respond. I've been offline for about 10 days or so as we lost our adsl connection in some recent storms. I still have 5 spare OPK's - if you want them just email me your address details to [email protected] . Hopefully you won't get to use them

    Mako - I read about your news in the other thread and left you a message there. Congratulations! That is wonderful news. How often do we read stories about women who fall in that month when they are trying naturally and think - yeah, sure - that won't happen to me, i'm not that lucky - and yet it has happened to you! I'm very happy for you.

    Hello to everyone else! FF has decided to reboot my cycle when I started heavier bleeding last week, so I'm hoping that is a positive sign, and that eventually AF will leave me. Not to long to my next appt. I'm sure they'll be sending me for more bt's and scans from that appt to start the lead up to Clomid again, so hopefully I'll be TTC again in a few months. I'm feeling quite positive about it all at the moment, but you know how it is, this rollercoaster ride will probably through me about sometime soon.

    I can't remember who asked - but someone asked about why some dr's start people who ovulate on clomid. I'm sure some dr's aren't sure what they are doing half the time! Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm not sure, but I'm an example of someone who can ovulate on my own, but not always - probably something to do with the stupid and variable length of my cycles. Even when I did go on clomid from days 3-7 I still ovulated anytime from CD18 onwards, which compared to others, is still later.

    sunnysummer: Glad you have hot flushes have gone away! They are annoying things and congrats on 0ing on day 14!! sounds promising..

    Butterfly warrior: Congrats YAY wishing you all the best with this cycle !!

    Miss belinda: all the best with your appt and i hope u get started soon -GOOD LUCK with it all!!!

    Well im on CD 11 today have been using opk's no positive as yet. I had acupuncture yesterday and got more TCM herbs she has a whole cycle mapped out for me each week of my cycle i take different herbs to help so im hoping this will help along with the clomid so i dont need to go down a different track of surgery etc as i really really dont want to have to go there...... so i see the acupuncturist on Friday and i see her again the following friday and also my specialist on 30th of March and i have to get my bt on 28th of March so i really hope i can ovulate but im only on 50mg so next step will be 100mg so i will be alot more postive on 100 mg for some reason lol
    Anyway hope all is well
    And we all get our dream BFP's!!!
    Take Care

    Good afternoon girls

    AUZZGAL, it looks like you have a good plan ahead for the next few weeks, I hope you ovulate on 50mg, stay positive. Even if the herbs and natural remedies don't really work in conjuction with chlomid, they are great things to help you relax and assist by improving wellbeing.

    missbelinda77, good luch with the tests, and hope to hear more of your TTC experiences.

    Well, as for me not much to say other that I am less bloated and my temperature is still high, this should stay high for the next week or so untill AF arives, than hopefully I can start IVF next month. Gell the ball rolling.

    well hope everyone is ok, talk to you soon.

    Hi Ladies. Hope you don't mind if I join. I am on second cycle of clomid, 10 months in to TTC bub number 2.

    I did Clomid and IUI last cycle, and am re-thinking doing IUI this cycle, but will go ahead with the Clomid. 1st tablet tonight (I take it days 2-6).

    What days do you all take it? Do you know why doctors prescribe it for different days, ie 3-7, 5-9 etc etc? Also, does it helop with side-effects (hot flashes, dizziness) by taking it at night? Any advice would be appreciated.

    When I got pregnant the first time (with my little boy, now 21 months old), we had been TTC for five years including 5 IVF attempts, but got pregnant first time trying Clomid (no IUI).

    So I am hoping it will work again in our quest for number 2.

    Good luck everyone with your cycles.............TTC is a vicious game we play, eh!

    Hi Julia

    welcome, and i really hope your stay here is a really brief one!
    i think the days that docs get you to take clomid all depends on the doctors - from what i've read, they're no particular reason why they choose different days - although days 5-9 usually results in later O if it does it's job! as for taking clmid at night, i was advised this was the best way to take them to avoid the side effects. apparently if you take them at night, the bulk of the hormonal fluctuation (including the natural ones) occur while you're asleep and you avoid a lot of the nasties! i had 3 cycles of clomid (up to 150mg - 3 tabs) per day, and had pretty negligible side effects.

    Hi everyone this is Penny,
    I just started Clomid...CD5thru9 and right now I'm on CD18 with all negative OPK tests.
    I'm sure I'm doing them wrong as I was taking them as soon as I woke up. I'm so frustrated and only want to do things right. My temps have been ranging from 97.3-97.6 with this a.m. being 97.5. I've read where you can O on CDs17thru21 taking Clomid so I'm still hoping.I have been BDing everyother day except for last night as my DF had an uncle pass away and we were very tired today is the showing with the funeral being tomorrow. So if anyone has advice for me I'll take what ever you can throw at me. Thanks a bunch and I'm sorry that Clomid didn't work for some of you(goodluck with the next step) I pray that this works for us. I started with 100mg a day for 5days. Hope anyone can shed some light for me. Thanks a bunch if you can.

    Hello i am Mel,

    We have been ttc for neally 2 years now. Currently on metformin and clomid,
    My doc said that ivf may be the next step for us, although i would like to stick to clomid
    for a few more months and i am working hard to loose weight, so hopefully this will help.

    My weight is a vicious cycle, when i am down i eat, then i get more depressed.
    I have started on weight watchers and walking in the morning.

    I hope some of you other ladies can offer some guidance for me,

    Thanks Mezza

    Hi Mel....welcome. Good Luck with your weight loss. I have started walking in the mornings too and I do Yoga three nights a week. I think it really helps with my mood too.

    Hi Penny...welcome. Are you having a CD21 BT to check for ovulation? My Dr told me that some OPKs may not work when you are taking Clomid?

    Hi Julia....welcome. I take Clomid from CD5-9 and I also take them at night. I have had minimal side effects on both cycles, some hot flushes and a bit headachey.

    LtlPanda...it is good to hear you aren't so bloated anymore. How are you feeling now?

    Kristie...i hope that the Clomid, acupuncture and herbs combo works out for you. You are sounding really positive, which is awesome

    Belinda....good luck with your next FS appt.

    Hayseed...I am so sorry for your loss. I really hope that this cycle of Clomid works for you.

    BG...did you call the FS to make an appt?

    SS...I find that some foods I eat make me sick and bloated too...especially bread. My Mum is a coeliac so I have all the tests and they think I have a slight intolerance.

    I hope everyone else is well!

    As for me... I am off to the FS tonight for an US to see if any follicles are growing. I am a bit nervous about it. I guess I am scared that he will say that nothing is happening But on the other hand he could say that it is going well
