    Deb - glad to hear from you and hope you enjoy your day of pampering. When you feel ready tell us about what happened but only when you are ready. I took my last Clomid tablet for this first cycle yesterday (50mg). I'm on CD7 today. Have to say that I haven't had any side affects. No nausea, no sign of irritableness (thank goodness DH says) and must say I have felt perfectly fine and calm. Will just have to see how things go. I know you will keep your fingers crossed for me.

    High to everyone else and good luck today Michelle. I will be thinking of you.

    Hugs as alwayss,
    Debbie

    Thank you Mako, Debbie and BW for your hugs, thoughts and best wishes. BW - I hope you are feeling better too. Just remember - it only takes one swimmer and they can live 3-5 days too.

    And Deb - thank you for the love and hugs too. Found a small subchorionic haematoma on u/s (but no bleeding so this *shouldn't* be a problem) and as such we won't start the clexane until after we see the OB and hopefully that will be next week. I hope you had a fabulous day of pampering

    Wooo! Temperature this morning still climbing... and when I adjust one of my dodgy temperatures from earlier in the week I actually get cover lines on day 14! Not entirely sure whether I believe them or not (so much for me crying to my doctor about the clomid not working yesterday!), but I guess it's just a matter of continuing to watch my temps and see what next week's blood test shows. The good thing about day 14 rather than day 15 is that FF gives me two BDs in the fertile period, and two is better than one! Still, realistically I don't expect to have anything eventuate from this cycle other than AF arriving in around two weeks... and that would be a vast improvement on the past! As for the anxiety... yesterday my doctor increased the dosage of my antidepressents again (I had doubled the original dose, he tripled it), so now I take violently red coloured tablets at night. He's wanting me to ween myself back down as soon as I'm through the crisis stage, and he's popped me on antibiotics for the sinus infection, and they seem to be working already (in that I woke up feeling not quite as deathly ill as yesterday). Sinus infections are the pits! You always feel like you're dying even though you know you aren't all that ill. In a strange and peculiar way, I'm actually looking forward to going back to work on Monday.

    big hugs to everyone! Thanks for reading through all my babble. I can see a change in me today - feeling much happier and positive about things, and I'm loving it!

    BW - you sound so much better and I am sooooooo relieved!! Bring on the BFP in 14 days or in the worst case scenario, AF!!

    hehe... I think the worst case scenario would be no BFP and no AF... because that would mean the clomid didn't work... so seeing AF at the end of the TWW would still be a good thing! I wonder if I'll still believe that getting towards the end...

    :eek: I'm so happy this morning I almost don't know myself!

    Butterfly Warrior, I am so pleased that you are feeling happier about things today. I was soooo worried about you that I didn't know what to post. Anyway keep your chin up and I good things will happen for you soon. Are you in the tww already? Time does go fast at times doesn't it?

    Flowerchild, I didn't realise you and I are very close together with our cycles. I took my last clomid tablet on Wednesday night. What days do you take yours? I go from 5 to 9. How long have you been on clomid for?

    Hello to everyone else We need lots of bfp's in here really soon!!!!!!

    I am having some pretty extreme mood swings, I know I'm actually about to drive in and visit my school for a bit this afternoon, and I'm not freaking out too much, so I think I'm going to be ok.

    Danni, I don't think any of those places are anywhere near Sydney.

    BW - Im sure everything will work out for you this cycle. My thoughts are with you.

    Well im on a long cycle after three months of perfectly timed cycles. I too have PCOS. I read about Danni having had a crazy cycle before her BFP. Any chance i could get a look at it just out of curiosity? Do you know where i could find it?

    Hi Everyone,
    Michelle - I am so happy that things went well for you and Alf. Subchorionic haematomas are not uncommon and it's small so your placenta will highly likely grow into it. Why do you have to wait to take clexane? I look forward to what your obs says next week. Your ticker is tocking by my love!!!! You are doing great and will continue to do so.

    Butterfly - so happy to hear that you are feeling so much better. I really think that clomid is your answer and good things are coming your way. When is your husbands "procedure"?

    Mako - I have just had a D&C for my third foetal death so I am not on clomid. I will commence clomid when I have a period - I am guessing in around 4 weeks time. I was fortunate to only take clomid one cycle (cd2-cd6) when I conceived last time. I am hoping it will be the same for me this time... I hope for you that this is your month.

    Debbie - How are you? I think of you often. Fingers crossed for you - well that just goes without saying. I am in there for you girl!!!! Great to hear you haven't had many symptoms. I found I got a bit cranky but I am not sure if that was just being a bit strung out wanting it to happen yesterday and being nervous about weather it was going to work. Debbie your chances of conceiving are incredibly high so you get ready to have the baby danceathon of a lifetime!!!! Are you having a follie scan at 10-12 days?

    Chelle - Where are you? Maybe I have missed your posts - I am a little all over the place at the mo.

    Willow :hugs: I am thinking of you...

    Kirsty - thankyou foryour kind message and your love and thoughts - you truly are a lovely friend. How are things for you. YOu are keeping a low profile of late... just for you...

    Well, I am feeling really good. I am looking forward to spring cleaning my house this weekend. All the kids have got a job to do and my darling husband is cleaning the windows (just because he doesn't want to say no to me at a time like this!). A cow got out of the paddock last night and trampled on my veges so that was fun at 1am! I have so much paper work and marking to do that I am a little swamped. Baby steps though!

    I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

    to everyone.

    Hi Flowerchild,
    I'm sorry I must have misread your post before.Silly me, must have been having a blonde moment(lol).
    I hope your going ok after your d&c. They sure are not very pleasant are they? I hope that when you do start your next clomid cycle it is very successful for you. You deserve it to be thats for sure.
    Have fun with your spring clean. It sounds like it will be a very busy weekend at your house.

    Mako - maybe it was me you were thinking of. I took my last Clomid tab on Wednesday as well but I take mine CD2 through 6. Hope we both have success and our dreams come true before we know it.

    Deb - spring cleaning! Gosh, I guess I ought to be thinking of that now too. And my windows sooo need cleaning. I need to get pregnant. For some silly reason, as soon as I am one of the first things I start doing is window cleaning. So hope it happens sooner rather than later or we won't be able to see out.

    Michelle - missed the news about your scan but I'm guessing that all went well. I remember my first scan with Chloe. The Ob said that he could see that I would have a bleed. Couldn't say I would definitely lose baby but also couldn't say I would definitely keep her. Anyway, the bleed never happened and she is now a lively, noisy four and a half year old! Take care and keep rubbing that tummy.

    BW - glad you are feeling better. We're all here for you so don't you forget that.

    Willow, Chelle and everyone else. Hi to you all and keep the news coming.

    Hugs to everyone,
    Debbie

    Good to see you again, Deb.

    Not much to say here other than I think I turned the corner last night. I was chatting to DH about what we would do if I didn't make it through the review at school, and just knowing that we have enough options (like he's prepared to move for me to be closer to a new school, just so long as he can still get to work, and also prepared to change churches if we move far enough away), so that if I don't make it, it's not the end of the world. That removes the pressure just a little and means I can actually reach a mind-set where I'm able to do the work needed. I know it sounds weird, but it's the way my brain works. I'm also wondering if some of the anxiety is due to the clomid as well, but I guess we'll see.

    DH has his appointment with the specialist on the 23rd of November, it feels like ages away! But when we sat down last night and got a basic timeline of the repair and then the time it will take for him to be growing strong, healthy sperm... even if I do change schools, I'm probably going to have been there long enough to still be eligible for maternity leave. It's kinda depressing that it's so long away, but I keep having to focus on the fact that the problems have a solution. Blood test for me on Tuesday... I'm suddenly really nervous! Scared that my levels are going to be bad, or say that I haven't ovulated... I'm sick of the waiting game!
