    Yeah - you are probably right Butterfly Warrior. For someone that wasn't worrying, I'm doing a fair bit of thinking about it! I'll try and not get to far ahead of myself.

    It might pay to go with your gut and follow your Dr's recommendation.Especially if you have had a good experience there. It sounds as though that is the way you are leaning. Hopefully you won't need to worry about IVF. I understand that $ does come into the equation too though. Perhaps post in Dr recommendation section and see if anyone has any feedback - that may help settle niggles or confirm your feelings?

    Hi there Hayseed - hang in there. See how your temp goes in the next couple of days huh. Interested to know how you get on

    Bye

    Smudge- When I have good size follies my FS always gives me a trigger shot of Pregnyl so like you said every DR is different. On other occasions when the Follie has been a little smaller she will send me away to mature it a bit longer and I have O by myself a couple of times. I guess it depends on your body too. My ovaries seem to be a bit stubborn and they will only work when they want to and sometimes I will just not O on my own. One cycle I needed two trigger shots before my body even considered ovulating. Good luck with this cycle.

    Hayseed- Sorry to see that you are feeling down. Like Smudge said hang in there for a few more days and see what your temp does. :hugs:

    Deb- thanks for the welcome back. I was just feeling like hiding for a little while but then after my scan yesterday I really wanted to come back in for all of the support you lovely ladies give and I am so glad I did. I hope you are well.

    Willow- I hope you are feeling ok. If you are feeling scared just close your eyes and keep thinking about that baby that you will be holding in your arms one day soon. Good luck you will be fine

    To everyone else I have missed, sorry, I hope you are all well. I am off now for a shower and to give myself my second injection. Feeling kinda excited about this all as it is a new adventure for DH & I to see if we can get our little bambino that we are dreaming of.

    ooh and I just realized that was my 100th post. Woo hoo.

    Hello Ladies,

    Pollyanna, I'm pleased that your surgery went well. Sorry to hear that you have pcos but atleast you now have some answers. lol about the wind problem. Atleast you can laugh about it. Take good care of yourself over the next few days.

    Hayseed, I hope af stays away and the spotting is only an implantation bleed.I have my fingers and everything else crossed for you.

    Monnie, lol at the clomid disaster. I totally know what you mean. The little suckers are hard to get out of the packet. Oh well I hope you don't need to worry about them for a long time and you end up with a great big bfp this cycle.

    Smudge, Good luck with the scan on Monday. I hope you have a nice little( or should I say big) follie in there. So glad that you didn't get too many side effects from clomid. Good luck to you for this cycle.

    Butterfly Warrior, Choosing a new specialist can be such a difficult task can't it. There are so many things to consider. Good luck to you sweet and I hope you get the answers you've been waiting for. I hope things work out for you and you dh with his appt too. Have a good weekend.

    Ktgirl, I hope you get a bfp this cycle. Oh the things we must do to get those little bundles of joy in our arms. Sorry to ask but are you having IUI or IVF or some other kind of treatment?

    Flowerchild, How are you? Hope you are having a good weekend.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

    Hey guys

    Smudge...I don't think I've really had any side effects with the clomid so far...I'm a little more moody, but part of that is due to my DH being away whilst it's "BD" time...looks like we'll need to wait another month!!!

    I have a question though...does clomid make your cycles longer? I was expecting to ovulate today or tomorrow...but my temperature dropped today and the CM isn't really fertile (certainly no EWCM)...could it be that the clomid has changed my cycle length???

    Wishing everyone all the best...

    Willow...take care

    Smudge...good luck with the scan

    BW...all the best in choosing your FS...it's such a hard one, hey? Maybe go with your GP's recommendation, especially given he/she knows you well and has gave you a great recommendation in the past.

    Hayseed...take care...

    And to all that I've missed (I should write it down next time)...wishing you fulfilled dreams...

    I'm having a wonderful weekend!

    I've got a really nice outfit for the formal dinner I have to go to on Wednesday night, it's not super-formal but is very nice! Cost over $300, but that includes shows and jewelry as well, so I'm fairly happy... DH won't be when he learns just how much of that I had to put on the credit card! But DH got offered a job today! More money, moving back into the industry he wants to work in, but it's not exactly what he wanted and it would mean driving further than he currently does. I'm trying to talk him into getting a motorbike to make traffic not such a problem and taking the job anyway. We'll see how things go. Still not completely convinced that it's a real ovulation on my chart, it's just a matter of waiting and seeing what my temperature does...

    Hi Mako, it is IUI that we are trying this cycle. Hopefully it will be the one. Where abouts are you at with this cycle? Here's hoping we all get a special Christmas present this year.

    Hi Everyone,
    This is a flying visit. MONNIE - I ovulated at cd21 on my first cycle of clomid and on a natural cycle I ovulate on around CD17 so YES it does sometimes make cycles longer rather than shorter. Other women report this as well. So I would keep going. Are you using opk's? They can help...

    Hi All,

    Ktgirl, Good luck with the IUI this cycle. Hope you get a great big bfp. I'm waiting for af to arrive, she's due tomorrow but don't have any signs of her arriving and no signs of preg either so I'll wait and see what happens. I'm also going to see my specialist at 9.30 tomorrow. I'll see what she has to say. I am going to ask what the next step will be if theres no bfp this cycle. I'm so sick of ttc and taking clomid. Seems like I'm sitting in no mans land atm. I have ovulated each cycle but no bfps. So frustrated. I can't understand how I fell preg 2 times without clomid and haven't fallen while taking it. Oh well will have to see what happens tomorrow. Sorry I've rambled on a bit.

    Hope you have had a good weekend.

    Just dropping in for a quick hello...

    I've had an interesting weekend... I'm quite sure that the anxiety issues have resolved and I'm now over-medicated as I'm sleepy ALL the time! Still a little scared to start reducing the dose as I'm worried that things at work will flare up again. Maybe when reports are done...

    I had a conversation this evening with a friend from church with PCOS... she conceived on clomid, but with taking hers on days 3-7, she would often not ovulate until late (like days 30-40) in her cycle... so perhaps it's not too inconceivable (no pun intended! ) that this was actually a real ovulation... will see how temps go. Still not sure I'll bother with the blood test as it either means getting in to see my GP (no time) or having to contact the silly ass of a gyn, which is pretty damned unlikely! It's so nice to hear little things like that which really lift your spirits and make you feel so much more confident!

    Good to hear you so positive BW. I have everything crossed this was ovulation for you.

    I always thought I didn't really suffer from mood swings too much, but I'm sure if I look back over my posts here it will become very, very obvious! I'm learning to enjoy the good times, though.

    Michelle, I really can't believe you and Alf have hit 10 weeks already! That's gone so quick! How's everything going?

    Michelle I'm that everything goes ok for you and alf today. Just know that I'll be thinking of you.

    Butterfly Warrior, I have my fingers crossed for you that you have "O'd". So pleased to hear that you are feeling much more possitive. Have a good day.

    Hope you other lovely ladies had a great weekend.

    I will pop back in when I get home from seeing my specialist today.

    Good luck with the specialist, Mako.

    Michelle, still praying so hard for you and little Alf. Be strong!

    As for me... woke up grumpy. Woke up early, took my temp, then fell asleep with my mouth open and the thermometer in... so I've got a seriously dodgy temp this morning! But it was still above the coverline - gotta look for the good in things!

    I'll be back after work to hear good news from Michelle and Mako.

    Pollyanna - so glad everything went well. Sorry about the PCOS but at least you can now format a game plan and start to head forward.

    Willow - I will be with you in spirit tomorrow so I hope you will feel me holding your hand. I know sometimes this all seems to much like hard work. I feel like that lots of times. And it is hard so don't feel bad about venting. Please let us know how everything went as soon as you feel able. Good luck girl.

    Deb - Had a good weekend. Last Clomid tablet for this cycle tomorrow. Feeling good although a bit ****ed with myself today. I took DS to school this morning and had a go at a couple of his friends. Yu-Gi-Oh cards are doing the rounds again. These 2 kids keep telling DS that his cards are fake just because he has some of the new release and they haven't seen them before. Of course he believes them and gets upset. I have explained to them about them being new release and that I know because I know someone in marketing but have no idea about the game. Today they were at it again in front of me and I explained again. They went off whispering to each other then not long later DS comes back crying his eyes out. He says they are saying insulting things about me to him. I just saw red. I told them that regardless about the cards, I thought they were my sons friends and you don't go aroung insulting friends parents. Would they like it if he did it to them about their parents? I was so cross. DS is by no means a total angel but one thing I know he never does is insult people by saying nasty things about them or other people. Sometimes hes too forgiving. I went and told their teacher and apologised that I didn't see her first. They prefer if you find a teacher to complain to rather than say anything yourself. Usually I would do this but I was so annoyed. Usually by the time the teacher has a word they have almost forgotten what they have done and they don't really take much notice. I will apologise to one of the boys mum as I know her but I just wish they would ban these stupid collector card games from schools. They cause soo much fuss. Of course, I hope this hasn't caused DS to be ostracised. Mum's can be so annoying sometimes.

    Sorry to go on but I hate it when my kids get hurt like that and I also don't like getting angry. Being angry always makes me cry.

    Hi to everyone else. I hope you are all having a good day.
    Hugs, Debbie
