Kurama any news?

Crampings have gone after a very bad day on Monday. Now nausea has started, I expect af to turn up today or tomorrow.

kurama Wed 14-May-14 07:04:52

Only just woke up stone but nothing when wiping. Everything seems same as yest. Waiting till new ics arrive before testing though. wink

kurama Wed 14-May-14 08:53:23

Decided to go to docs this morn see if I can get bloods done confused

kurama Wed 14-May-14 09:15:17

And we have some blood. Friging typical!sad

kerrylou84 Wed 14-May-14 10:49:51

shoe I'm sure I had reflexology done on day 12 or 13, and for the first time in maybe years I ovulated on day 14. I didn't book it purposely on that date, I wasn't thinking about it to be honest.
I don't know if it was that what helped or if it's just coincidence but I think it did have a little something to do with it xxx

Shoegal30 Wed 14-May-14 10:55:24

Oh no Kurama. Fingers crossed it's not AF. This is exactly what happened to me on Monday but if AF does come at least you can start again this month.

It looks like we are cycle buddies. First lot of Clomid taken yesterday. Fingers crossed x

Shoegal30 Wed 14-May-14 10:55:51

Thanks Kurama. I will maybe try 1 session this month too x

HowsTheSerenity Wed 14-May-14 12:55:45

Ginger I've had a small amount, about a droplet, of discharge for years. I thought it was normal.
I was on the pill for 20 years (periods from age 10, pill at age 13) so only been off it for 18 months but cycle has been regular but always insanely heavy. Had no pcos or endometriosis.

j200 Wed 14-May-14 13:21:01

Hi Shoegal, just to let you know my doc said timing is much more important than frequency of dtd, we only did it twice for my BFP- night of trigger shot and day of ovulation, I guess if you are not sure when you are ovulating then covering more bases is good x

ImpatientOne Wed 14-May-14 20:07:49

That's good to hear j200 as I am a bit worried about my current cycle as I will be working away for 1 night during the critical time!

Not feeling very optimistic at all as the timing is all wrong! I phoned the unit this morning (day 1) and said I wasn't sure about taking the meds this cycle as day 11 is the Saturday of the bank holiday and last month I had 2 follicles on day 11 and my trigger on day 12. Anyway they have booked me in on the bank hol Tuesday for my scan which will be day 14.

My lining was only 5.6mm last time though so at least by waiting until day 14 I will find out if that's developed but run the risk of the follicles being overdone! I am then away overnight day 16 so am going to travel late and get DH to come home at lunchtime to DTD blush

Had a horrible day and work today and have inadvertently upset a colleague sad so feeling crap!

StoneBaby Wed 14-May-14 20:33:45

impatient have a large G&T

kurama how are you?

I'm POAS tomorrow am if af doesn't appear during the night but I know it'll be a BFN

kurama Wed 14-May-14 21:45:17

stone im feeling ok i suppose. ive had af pains but nowere near as bad as usual... and not as much bleeding. not sure if i should take the clomid tomoro or see if bleeding gets worse tomoro. thats cool tho about being cycle buddies! grin
i dyed my hair tonight ready for holiday grin its redish underneath and a red streak at the front lol

AnnieHoo Wed 14-May-14 22:58:25

stone I didn't realise you were still in the game... Fingers crossed for a BFP!

kurama hope you're feeling better tomorrow x

I've got my scan first thing tomorrow to check everything's gone. Dreading it, can't wait for it to be over.

StoneBaby Thu 15-May-14 06:54:19

annie good luck. I hope it goes fine.

BFN here. I was expected it especially as I'm more and more convinced that while I develop the folicle I don't release them! I'm seen the FC next week and will tell him.

ImpatientOne Thu 15-May-14 07:14:54

Will be thinking of you Annie

Sorry for the BFN Stone hopefully you can make some progress with FC next week.

kurama Thu 15-May-14 09:25:12

That sucks stone.im starting to wonder if that's the case for me as well .guess ill phone up FC tomorrow and try to get some answers.

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 15-May-14 10:12:36

Hope it goes okay annie

Sorry stone, we're due a bfp here!

AnnieHoo Thu 15-May-14 10:15:01

Stone and kurama hope you get some answers from monitoring. Keep investigating and asking questions.

Back from scan now, all fine.

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 15-May-14 10:21:48

Hope you're okay annie, that must've been very sad.

AnnieHoo Thu 15-May-14 10:45:05

I'm fine Ginger! Feel completely ok about it now. The hormones have left me now and I'm not on Clomid this month so it's the first time in months and months I've felt calm and it's great to feel normal again! Won't be trying again until after Chromosome test results though and probably just stop ttc until IVF. Where are you in your cycle now? I'm getting confused on all these threads! wink

AnnieHoo Thu 15-May-14 10:48:29

ginger i remembered you were going to ask about what to do about day 12 monitoring because you'll be on your holidays. Bet your looking forward to Mexico! smile

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 15-May-14 10:58:25

So glad you're ok, you've coped so well. Waiting on call back from fc re doubling dose. I'm 4dpo & crazily symptom spotting which isn't like me. Feel sick, sore lower back & headaches. Think it's just something I ate when away last couple of days. Plus taking b6 and prog cream to combat lp defect so it's prob that too. But it's bloody giving me hope so ill be so deflated when AF comes (however will be able to hit the cocktails on hol, every cloud & all that).

Bet you're so excited about ivf. We should get our first apt for assisted conception at gri in aug so well chuffed with that. As you know was thinking about going to ivf when clomid finishes but can delay now which is great as cant afford it!

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 15-May-14 11:01:12

How long will chromosome tests take annie?

AnnieHoo Thu 15-May-14 11:17:52

They're taking a while to get back to you about dosage. 100mg did make me have emotional breakdown with crazy hormones. BUT it got me a BFP.

I know it's hard but and chill now for next 10 days with relaxation and look after yourself and keep your mind busy to try and stave off the symptom spotting madness. It would be wonderful if this was your month.smile

My tests take 3 weeks but have to get them face to face from consultant so appt on 19th June for those.

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 15-May-14 11:28:50

Fx it good news for you.

Why did they put you on 100? Were you on 50 first?
