    well we're excited cos after 4 rounds of clomid, and no joy, we thought we'd pull all the stops, so HCG showing clear tubes, acupuncture, charting temps., OPK tests etc etc ...and finally after 3 days of -ve OPK tests, (faint line)....we got a positive today.

    so BD continues, and we're cheering on the 'teams' in there, there are 3 competing right now!

    Hello everyone! Can I join this thread please?

    I am on about to embark on my 3rd round of clomid - my FS is doubling the amount to 100mgs. My progesterone BT results on clomid was 53 on my first cycle and only 29 this time. I O-ed on CD 15 both times.

    On CD 10 this next cycle, my FS is going to have a look at my folicles which should be interesting. Not sure what he's looking for other than to see if there are any ready to throw out an egg but I guess I'll find out soon enough.

    Hopefully AF will arrive shortly. I have been spotting (as usual) from CD8 but it seems to be stopping now so I don't know what's going on. I did two HPTs just in case but both were BFNs.

    Congrats to those with BFPs, that's encouraging to see

    Airline - Good luck catching that eggy!!!

    LouLou - I was on 100mgs clomid for my first cycle how high can the dose go is 100mg the max?

    I don't know where i'm at in my waiting at the moment - I'm CD18 but don't know for sure when i O'd? Ithink it was CD9 making me 8-9dpo have tested twice (rather impatient!) both BFN. But i may have O'd latter??? This TWW thing is driving me insane. I was in a really bad mood last night - for no good reason and thought - i feel like i'm premenstrual (get really bad *****y mood swings pre AF) so i'm not hopeful . I think i will def temp next cycle so i'm not in limbo and i think i need to stay away from pg tests for at least another week

    Hope everyone is doing OK? Lots of for everyone

    Bella - I have heard of people taking 150mgs before which I think is the maximum but I'm not sure.

    Sorry to hear you're having such a crappy time during your TWW. It's awful just hanging around as if you're anything like me, your mind and body gang up and play tricks on you. I am always so hopeful each cycle but then I seem to go into blind panic around 8DPO once I get the spotting. It's hard to take your mind off it and concentrate on other things but try if you can to distract yourself

    I really hope this is the one for you but stay away from those HPTS so you don't torture yourself further (and remember, Clomid does mess with your hormones so you're bound to feel a bit more upset than usual)

    I am back to temping now as not temping during the TWW made me panic even more as I couldn't tell for sure whether AF was coming or whether the spotting was IB. At least you can get a better idea if you temp

    Hello to everyone else

    Thanks Missk and LouLou.. i was just wondering because i started on 100mg for 5 days and my FS wants me to do three of these cycles then give up clomid and move to injections. I really don't feel this is my month so was wondering if i should be increasing the dose but by the sounds of things others increase their dose because they start on 50mg.

    I'm just poping in quick as i just finished work so bb tom.

    Hi Everyone

    AJC - Hi - glad to hear your doing well xx

    Airline - how are you hun - where are you up to ??about 6dpo?? How are you feeling hope your not tearing your hair out .

    Miss k / LouLou - i have posted to you both in TTC buddies - but Miss K how are you coping on 150mg clomid and Loulou are you having many side effects??

    Hi to everyone else - sending everyone lots and lots

    Me - just waiting - i was a little psycho and did two HPT'S (Mon + Wed) both were BFN.. It was a little early but i still don't think this was our month . I'm cd 21 today ?13dpo or ?7dpo (not sure when i O'd). So i'm staying away from HPT at least until next Fri when i will test before my accupuncture appt.

    Hope evryone has a great weekend.

    Bella - I am doing ok on the double clomid dose thanks, not really going as crazy as I thought I would. DH has been spared

    GL with testing - let's hope the next POAS brings you a BFP

    Just seen your post about increasing your dose. I shouldn't do it without direction from your doctor. Let's hope you don't need the injections - what do they do by the way?

    Hey Bella I have had no side effects from it yet soo maybe this means it isn't working for me again?? I hope you get your BFP this cycle

    Lou Lou - the injections are a folicle stimulating hormone that get you to ovulate it has to be monitored very closely as you can get OHSS so when you see sixtuplets etc they are from the injections generally as my FS told me because with IVF they don't put that many in there

    MissK - 6 babies?! Wow, I can't even begin to imagine.... My FS said that everyone reacts to clomid in a different way. Some people don't notice a difference where as others end up suffering very badly with mood swings and even depression so they have to come off it.

    Yeah I was expecting some kind of side effect I thought the 3 a day would have done something atleast? The only thing I was told to be aware of was that it can produce fluid around the heart and the lung which scared me a little last time I had taken it I have never heard of that and it wasn't in the pamphlat either!

    Yes 6 babies could you imagine it lol!!! There is a show on foxtel called john and kate plus 8 they have 6 2year olds and 2 6year olds and they seem to cope really well i couldn't do it

    Miss K / LouLou - glad to hear you both are doing ok on this round of clomid - I really didn't have any side effects really - i was so worried - your right though apparently some people react bably on it others are ok.
    Jon and Kate + 8 - is a great show - i'm a little addicted to all those shows on the health channel - the quintuplets one is great also.
    I'm really hoping i won't need the injections because apparently my specialist won't allow / doesn't agree with timed sex during injections and therefore you have to have the sperm inserted after being washed etc - so DH really doesn't want it to get to that! If this isn't our month then next month i'm going to temp and try to be really healthy and give it a really good go - hey do either of your DH take zinc tablets?? Do you think they work?? Is there anything else we can do (i'm already on folic acid and having accupuncture!)??

    Bella - thats strange that your FS doen't believe in timed BD mine hasn't mentioned that at this stage that is weird!!!! I haven't got him on zinc tablets but I am thinking about putting him on them now you mention it hehe!!! I think you have pulled all the right stops so far lets hope this clomid works for you

    I don't know that for 100% sure - someone else in here (can't remember who!!) has the same FS as me and told me that? My FS has only breifly mentioned that we will move onto injections but he said "hopefully that won't be neccessary - we will cross that bridge IF we have to!!"
    xxBella (lets hope we don't have to cross any more bridges !!)
