    Oh no Deb, no. God I want to say something to make you feel better but all I can do is cry for you....I am stunned. I have no words for you my friend, I know they don't help. But we are all praying for you and your family.



    You, your family and little Eggbert will be constantly in my thoughts.

    I don't know what to say... I'm stunned! I can hardly believe this. Flowerchild, know that I'm thinking of you at this awful time.

    There seems to be so much sadness, so much grief, so much bad news in this thread lately.

    Deb, like the others, I too am very sorry to hear of your loss. This is just awful news.

    You're right Mako, we need some good news in here ....FAST.

    Spotting for me today is increasing and is becoming tinged with red. So it isn't looking good. Blast, bugger, sh*t, damn, cr*p..... I can't even cry I feel so damn depressed. I just feel this utter sense of hopelessness at the whole thing. I have 2 more clomid cycles to go before I need to see FS again. And then it will be operation time.

    I feel like I'm having a little melt down here... I'm more than half convinced the clomid isn't going to work. My chart has gone psycho, my OPK was pale on Friday, a bit darker on Saturday and today back to being very pale again... I just wish there was some way to know if I'm going to ovulate or not - I'm scared!

    I'm also wondering that if 50mg of clomid doesn't work for me - will I get to do 6 cycles at 100mg? Or is it 6 cycles, that's it... so if I have to get up to 150mg of clomid, I then only get three because of the ones that we've done before hand??

    Sorry I can't bring any good news just now... so stressed!

    So much for me taking a break, just can't at the moment after Deb's news and what's going on with me.

    Hayseed, we are definately on the same path you and I. I sort of wish I had a bit more time before I was faced with another op but on the other hand we need to know what we are dealing with and if it's IVF for us, I just want to start.

    BW, stop stressing pet. You are only on cd12, you probably won't O for another 2, 3 even 4 days yet so in that case you should really be expecting to see a positive opk in the next few days, not now. I had a similar experience last month and it turned out just fine. If you have enough, I'd do opk's x2 a day just to make sure you catch the surge. I did that the first two times but once I worked out that I generally o on cd14/15 I just do one in the evening, starting on cd12.

    As for how many cycles you are 'allowed' it is up to 6 OVULATORY cycles. The theory is if you are ovulating for 6 months on clomid and you still aren't prg, statistics show its highly unlikely you will fall prg on it. I would assume if you don't ovulate on 50mg (although I am sure this will not be the case) then that cycle will not count towards the 6 because it didn't work ifykwim??

    Michelle, are you OK? I'm a bit worried about you, you haven't been around for a few days. I hope you are just off relaxing somewhere!

    Thanks, Willow. I think I'm just having a generally stressy weekend. I'm all worried about impending ovulation or not, all the crap that's going on at work (I'm terrified of making waves, and getting the union involved - eep!), and all the noise from the air show is NOT helping!!

    I guess I had sort of expected to see the lines on the OPKs gradually get darker and darker - but doesn't look like that's going to happen. I've got heaps, so I think I'll start doing a few more each day.

    Hi Butterfly Warrior,
    I hope you don't stress too much. I know that it's a stressful time when ttc and take clomid. Are you going for blood tests or ultrsounds to see if you are ovulating? If so what cd are you doing that? When do you go back to see your specialist? I have my blood test done on cd 23 as I take clomid on days 5 to 9, so therefore should ovulate around cd 21 as I generally have a 35 day cycle.I have ovulated each month while taking 50mg clomid but haven't fallen preg as yet. I only have until Dec for clomid and then I need to look into other options. I have never used opk's or charted my temps. I feel that I would be obsessing too much if I did. Anyway I'm back to the gyn/ob on the 3rd November and will be bding lots in the mean time hopefully lol. Today is cd 6 and 2nd day of clomid so I will keep my fingers crossed for all of us who is going through the same thing. Just remember you are no alone during this journey.

    Just got back from a family wedding to find the world had tilted.

    Deb - nothing I say can or will make this time any better. Know that I am thinking of you, praying for you and sending you all the love in the world to support you and your family. Contact me when you are feeling up to it if you want to talk off line :hugs:

    Willow - things will work out. Maybe not today but they will. The surgery is a speed bump in your road and you will get through it a stronger woman. You can do it. Have faith in your own abilities.

    BW - try not to stress about the ovulation tests. I stopped doing it at one stage because the lines were messing with my head. Day 21 (and then every few days if required) progesterone levels are usually a better indicator of ovulation having occurred.

    Me - told my parents and a (much larger number than expected) group of people while I was home for the weekend about this pregnancy. I know it is only 6 weeks but I will be just as devastated if this pregnancy was to fail at anytime. I figured I will need the support anyway and they may as well enjoy our joy as it happens rather than just hear the bad news. Intermittent nausea (but not enough to make me feel secure) and nothing much else to report. I have to arrange an u/s through the week to check for viability and I am terrified by the thought. DH will also be away so I will be going to the test alone (best friend goes o/s tomorrow) unless I can convince another friend to come along for the ride. I just fear the worst.

    Sorry I have not lifted the mood. BBL with hopefully a better frame of mind.

    I've had to race home from church tonight without socialising as normal because I'm giving myself a massive stress headache compounded by lack of sleep last night. The closer I get to returning to work tomorrow morning (and facing all the crap that's going on there, and hearing from the union) the more stressed I get. Making an appointment with my GP to get a week off on stress leave has a certain appeal, but I know that's only going to make things worse when I do go back. I'm sure the stress isn't doing my any favours in the ovulation department so I'm focussing on doing my best to relax, de-stress and allow myself to feel loved and supported by those around me. I want to call mum, but I know I'll just burst into tears and I won't be able to maintain a sensible conversation with her.

    there's some massive hugs for us... seems like we could all use them.

    Michelle, I'll be praying hard for good news with your ultrasound. I wish I was in a situation where I could take the day off and come with you so you don't have to go alone, but my work situation is getting very rocky right now. An extra just for you.

    Thankyou to everyone who has sent their love. I can feel it and I need it so thankyou so much. I am doing okay. I went to a Buddhist retreat yesterday and just felt the peace. I am angry at God/Universe. I know she/he didn't do this but surely she/he could have stopped it happening - if that makes sense. I know that is a childish response but it was how I was feeling on Saturday. Today I am more accepting. For some reason my babies are gone and that has to be accepted and grieved and I need to move forward for me and my family. My husband is sweet and supportive and worried and scared for me. I have told him this isn't deterring me. I will have a baby.

    I am truly sorry for the sadness my news has brought you all. I am so aware of how this affects others.

    I would love to talk to you Michelle but I don't knwo how? Thankyou all again and I will be back in a little while...

    to you all...

    Deb - oh my god!!! I just don't know what to say. This was the last thing I expected to read when I signed on today. Oh lovey, I wish I could be around to give you a big hug and maybe just sit and cry together if that's what you needed. I know how much Eggbert meant to you - how much all your babies mean to you whether in your arms or no longer here. Deb, I am truely sorry and will be here for you, I hope you know that.

    Your friend as always,
    Debbie

    Michelle - glad you are doing well. I can imagine how hard it would have been to not share your joy around. It is so hard to keep a secret like that. I think you are right, let them all share your joy as it happens rather than maybe just hear any bad news. Take care.

    BW, Willow, Chelle, Hayseed and everyone else. Glad you are all still around. BW, stay strong and we are all here for you.

    Love and hugs to you all,
    Debbie
