I'm cd 19 been testing but no ovulation sad but I knew that anyway. My app with the specialist is on Monday in looking forward to it but I'm not expecting it to work if I do get clomid, but I need to stop being negative about everything but its so bloody hard.

Soph80 Mon 21-Jan-13 21:45:00

I know, its so difficult isn't it? Hang in there though. How long have you been trying? x

Meluv Mon 21-Jan-13 21:48:33

viviennewestwould Mon 21-Jan-13 22:50:13

Meluv, I'm so sorry, sweetheart. Now they've got you ovulating it's simply a matter of time. Keep your chin up, love, you'll get your baby xx

Annalou, try to be positive about Monday - you're moving forward.

Thanx for your kind words V they mean a lot am happy your DP managed to do his part I have all crossed for you lovely .... What would any of use do in my dilemma concerning my sisters wedding or carry in trying for my dream I realy want to be there for her but am so scared if I take a 5 month brake my cyst could well return in that time & then my chances would be handed again when they have to take my ovary an tube grrrrr what a choice I av to make xxxx

viviennewestwould Tue 22-Jan-13 07:58:49

Meluv, this is your dream - to have this baby - and it is your responsibility to keep trying and to avoid that cyst returning. Your sister's dream (her wedding, her happiness) is her responsibility. Don't put your dreams on hold for anyone x

Meluv Tue 22-Jan-13 10:23:51

well dec could not ttc as dh was working away when i was ovulating sad but as sad as it was i decided to have a crazy month wine as there was no chance so ditched the healthy eating & drunk loads & had loads of fun blocking out ttc i had hang over most of the time grin all was good till i got af over a week ago as now i'm on the crazy ttc so back to boring foods, no drink, planned sex,vitamins, temps, opk etc... yawn. smile I really did need that month off ttc & letting my hair down having a drink. I did overdose on it & happy not to drink for a long time now it just helped me get though xmas & block out ttc.
I am cd 12 about to ovulate today or tomorrow just need some sperm as dh is being tight with his (not well man flu) wimp & selfish i say & i don't want to miss this month it was hard enough missing out last month & also a waste of my time doing all the healthy ttc stuff this month, i better get some today or dh will have to sleep with one eye open grin no i will just jump on him smile I do it when i'm not well so i won't let him get away with angry

Take care & good luck ladies thanks

Meluv - has your sister asked you to have a 5 month break? I 100% wouldn't stop, keep trying hon x

Sarah, Meluv is correct in that PCOS can give false positives on OPKs. However, if you haven't had a positive in that long and now you've got one I would suggest Clomid is indeed working for you. If your positive opk was yesterday you can expect to ovulate today or tomorrow at the latest. This means, of course, that your blood test on Friday is pointless. You need to arrange a test for next Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.

Hello, Hopefully, I'll be honest with you: your fella needs to pull his finger out. Man flu should not be preventing him from helping you achieve your dream. I have no time for these blokes who treat this journey as if we have all the time in the world angry

My DP, bless him, managed to ejaculate yet again tonight - that's three nights in a row - and I'm so proud of him for overcoming such a traumatic few days with his issues smile

Meluv Wed 23-Jan-13 07:36:07

Morning lovely ladies soph my sister has not ask me to stop no luv it's just I felt I had to so I cud be there for her special day we r so very very close she like my mum to me since we lost our queen (mum) 10 years ago its so so hard but I am going to continue with my dream ..... Cd 34 for me today an still no af I still have tenderness round my nipple area but two test said bfn wish af wus just start so I can get back on my tabs xxx

viviennewestwould Wed 23-Jan-13 08:13:27

Meluv, that is a very long luteal phase if you ov'd on CD14 like the nurse said. 20 days??! I don't think so.

viviennewestwould Wed 23-Jan-13 08:14:40

...in fact, I would go to the GP for a blood test to check for pregnancy. Your period should deffo be here by now.

Sarahb8990 Wed 23-Jan-13 10:26:54

Thanks viv I didn't realise that it had to be about 7dpo. Iv just spoken to my consultant and they want me to have a blood test on both Friday and Tuesday now

Meluv Wed 23-Jan-13 11:09:20

V u r so right what your saying luv but my cd 21 bloods defo showed I ovulated because of the results my cd 28 bloods were canceled I still have no af shown up confused but two preg test gave me a bfn .... Question does it matter that the test were only cheap ones ?

Meluv Wed 23-Jan-13 12:01:09

Just rang clinic an spoke to my nurse told her about what has gone on two negative tests ov on cd 14 but still no af she said we wus expect you to get your af about 14 days after but we r all different an if I do t get af by Monday next week to test again grrrrrr this journey

viviennewestwould Wed 23-Jan-13 19:34:01

Meluv, I know what you are saying. 34 days and no AF is a long time if you ov'd on CD14 though.

Soph80 Wed 23-Jan-13 20:54:45

Meluv, I'm SURE your sister won't care, she'll just be thrilled that your getting your dream! Hopefully your dream is as far away as you think......

Meluv Thu 24-Jan-13 07:27:34

Well girls af has finally arrived wine hear to another' month of ttc ... V flowers these r for you xxx

viviennewestwould Thu 24-Jan-13 08:59:25

Aaaaaw, Meluv! Thanks for the beautiful flowers, I'm so sorry about AF. On the bright side - you ovulated, which is a huge achievement and means it's only a matter of time before the right sperm meets the right egg xxx

Meluv Thu 24-Jan-13 10:39:36

Aw thanks V am just happy am responding to clomid an like you said I hope it's only a matter of time luv xxx what cd r u now V ... Waves to everyone else xxx
