    Bella - you need a BBT thermometer (digital are best) - don't just use a normal one. Have a look on the Lullaby Conceptions website, the one they have there is the one I have. I bought it at the chemist though as it was cheaper.

    Join up with Fertility Friend too. Basically, you need to have 3 hours consecutive sleep and then temp at the same time each day. I take mine at 6am and at the weekend, I set my alarm for that time too. The good thing about the BBT thermometer is that it has a memory so you can just go straight back to sleep and log it on Fertility Friend when you're ready to get up properly.

    So sorry AF arrived - GL with the next cycle, Fertility Friend will help I think, it made me feel a lot more confident and in control. Big hugs to you. Have some wine



    Mabello - any news....?

    Bella, so sorry AF arrived. Me too, yesterday, she's settled right at home...b****!
    Lou lou gave you perfect advice. I got my thermometer at chemist too, and I set alarm for 7.30 every day. I found charting fascinating and now (sadly) have started my second cycle chart. Fertility Friend website is great.

    Hi All, Haven't been around for a while but sending :goodluck2: to all those in the TWW. Well, for us the third round of clomid plus first round of pregnyl (HCG) injections resulted in a BFN!

    We have decided to take this month off and as part of that will probably try to stay away from the computer as I'm trying for a psychological break as well as physically from the medication. Had bloods and an internal scan today to assess ovarian reserve "egg timer test". We will try clomid/pregnyl again in a month or two but I think we will end with IVF which is currently planned to start around october.

    Hope when I next check in there have been some BFPs

    Drgirl, thanks for popping in. I understand about staying away from the computer for a while. I go through phases, but now I'm on it soo many times a day if I'm off or alone. I feel like a sponge wanting more and more info, but since AF arrived 2 days ago,I've felt quite low and introspective.

    Mabello, sorry it was a -ve bt. How frustrating. If AF arrives for you, then you Bella and I may have same ish 2ww again It sure helps knowing that there are those that 'get it'.

    Mabello - oh no, so sorry

    Airline - sorry about your AF too. Grrrrr

    Quick 'me' update - I am having a scan this afternoon to see if I O-ed. If not, I'll have IUI but I think I may have. Strange that my temp hasn't gone up much though as it is normally through the roof on O day.

    Princess - welcome. I don't know much about Met but clomid is working for me. What does the met do? Good luck

    Well my scan showed that the follicle is still there so I haven't ovulated. I was given the trigger shot to bring on ovulation.

    DH has to takes his swimmers in at 11am tomorrow then I collect them at 1.15pm after they've been washed, take them to my FS and he does the IUI. Let's hope this works...

    hey LL,

    metformin is a drug used to help insulin resistance which is though to contribute to PCOS.

    some people get BFP's on this alone.

    hopefully we can all scoot out of this thread and into a bellybuddies one soon

    hi Girls,

    I thought I'd just update my situation at the moment. I decided to skip clomid this month and wait to see what the doc said.

    I went to see the doc today and he sounded pretty positive.He decided that I don't need a HCG scan at the moment. He wants me to go two more cycles naturally. After the ectopic my AF came on 29 days. He said the preg hormones can kick my body into gear and that's why I seem to be more regular. If I don't get UTD and my cycle becomes irregular again, then I will start clomid again. So for now I am on temps, CM, ov pain & opk alert, ready to catch that egg.

    Bella- GL with the temping. I've just started up again too.

    I wish everyone the best in here and will keep my eye on you all.

    Hi girls,

    Sorry haven't been around this week but have been flat out with work and hubby's 40th party. Well I had my blood test on fri and sorta got the results this arvo. I'm a little confused as my doc said some levels were up and other levels weren't as high as he expected so he wants to do another bloodtest this fri....all too confusing for me and am feeling really down in the dumps as not sure whats going on.

    I hope all you girls trying this month have some much needed luck! We have to get some more BFP!

    Hi Bella!

    Sorry to hear about your mum...i hope she will be ok.
    Uhh I hate night shift. I was on night and dh was on days when we had to bd for a week...made the expierence so romantic...lol...it was like nudge nudge, wake up you have to go to work and i have to go to bed! Ahh the things we go through for a bub...gotta laugh.
    I have the 2.5 dogs on the bed with me this arvo spending some time with them.

    I'm feeling better today.No my doc didn't give me any numbers ,he was mumbling alot to himself.He;s a great doc and i like him but he's a pain when you ring up for results.
