<peeps in and whispers>
Don't suppose anyone can tell me what clomid does then?

yes yes I know I could google but I've banned myself from any pregnancy or ttc googling from now on

boom great news with the super spaniel! It'll do you both good if you go to classes and have a good time together. Especially with other dogs around.

So, when do we get to re-lay this road? <waggles yellow bricks>

Hey boom Hey barking

barking I know what you mean, I am so scared that my cousin (second oldest after me) who got married a year after me is going to announce his wife is pg soon, I really wanna be the first but I think I may fail! I may freak out big time when it happens though!

And FFS have you seen useless Dixon is pg now!

And don't get me started on the royal baby (RB) next month is going to be hell for us all!!!!!!!!

Hey thunder

Hello all

boom well done on your essay mark & hope your day of dissertation went well. I'm on cd22 and have cycles anywhere between 23 and 33 days so I'm thinking prob another wk til af due....

Saw GP today about recent scan / bloods / stuff - said I have an arcuate (?) uterus & my bloods show low progesterone so might not have ovulated last couple of mths. i'm hopeful of this mth's test - have had all sorts of bloating / wind / crazy moods / cramps which is surely down to hormones?? Ultimately it's time for dh to get jizz test so we can get that checked before referral to FC. Part of me wants to leave it alone for a bit &see what happens but am also impatient (not to mention sick of almost being last woman I know who isn't pregnant / a mum)....

bunny hello & hope you're having a nice eve smile

Hugs foody flowers

Just back from a trip to the sales and a stroll around Boots. Got really happy looking at the new summer nail varnishes, til I saw the special set next to the one I had my hand on: called 'Boy or Girl?', a blue and a pink shade, apparently a perfect gift for the mummy-to-be (so said the box) confused why can I not even shop for a bloody nail polish without having babies thrown in my face!!! Grrr!

Aquarius1 Thu 20-Jun-13 20:48:36

Aargh cross posted there & am about 5 posts behind hence prob sounding a bit random.

I heartily feel those RB gluckschmerz sentiments hmm

Thundercatsarego Thu 20-Jun-13 20:52:54

Hey bunny

Want a jammy dodger, <offers biscuit>

aqua I too am the last unpregnant/mum standing and I would be impatient too. So they won't refer you purely based on these results?

angry sid FFS!

barkingtreefrog Thu 20-Jun-13 20:56:56

thunder clomid boosts ovulation. The best success rates are for women who are having problems with ovulation as it makes it actually happen. With unexplained inferility (as we've been diagnosed with) the success rates aren't as good as I'm already ovulating, that's not my problem, so it doesn't make a huge difference. However it should strengthen ovulation and potentially make more eggs drop so the swimmers have more than one target (hence an 8% chance of twins).

Bunnygirlie Thu 20-Jun-13 20:57:52


aquarius my first two progesterone tests showed low levels, my third one was ok. Get DH to get his jizz test, I don't think you'll get a referral otherwise. My DH has had two failed attempts so far (apparently its tricky to get the stuff in the pot grin) so best to get him started me thinks!

BlindKitty Thu 20-Jun-13 21:12:03

Hi peops!!!!!

Well coincidentally (after what I said re bs yesterday) my friend messages me today to ask if I was free for her bs. She was actually going to do it herself as her bridesmaids were so crap at organising it. So you've guessed it... I've offered! Nursery rhymes and nappy games here I come!

Anyway, it's bound to be my turn soon hahahaha so I'll need her to organise mine grin

boom well done re the grade you go girl!

Btw, this thread has got very clomid obsessed lately! If I'd have realised how bothered you all were about it, I'd have given you mine! Totally can't be bothered with it anymore!

Thundercatsarego Thu 20-Jun-13 21:12:27

Oo barking wouldn't that be bloody wonderful! Am excited for you now. Thanks for the explanation.

bunny i had wondered how easy it is to jizz into a little pot! But he did it this time eh? When do you get the results? And will you be referred even if his swimmers are ok?

Aquarius1 Thu 20-Jun-13 21:22:29

thunder no my GP said they'd want to know about dh's jizz first - makes sense - i'm curious to know if his swimmers are any good anyway...

bunny that gives me hope. and my GP said no one ovulates every month (apart from weird perfect people) too. DH seems enthusiastic about jizz test so do hope it'll work.

I'm glad about the clomid chat - it sounds like i might need it... frigging lazy ovaries....

barkingtreefrog Thu 20-Jun-13 21:22:33

kitty I was only hopeful as it should sort out my LP. The consultant kind of sucked the optimism out of me though by saying a) that clomid probably won't do much for me and b) that my short LP isn't a problem
If the LP was a problem then I could be confident that the clomid would make a difference but he's kind of deflated my balloon! I still can't see how an LP of 8 days gives the egg long enough to snuggle in and get comfy but there you go. thunder I think you can keep hold of those yellow bricks....

Bunnygirlie Thu 20-Jun-13 21:28:36

thunder DH results should be early to mid next week! My old doc said that whatever results say we should be referred but will wait and see what new docs say, hope to see them next week if they have my records.

Let's have a game of jenga with those yellow bricks lol

MrsB00Mbastic Thu 20-Jun-13 21:36:39

Ha Kitty is that a black market sweetie stall you're setting up over there? <sidles over for a closer look at the merchandise>...

So to continue with the clomid-obsession...I have been doing 'research' on fertility rather than my really boring data synthesis for the diss, and am wondering about clomid vs metformin vs clomid AND metformin. Apparently the double whammy combo is the best for getting bubbed up, has anyone been given both or is it just the clomid that's handed out as standard?

Thunder I will help you build a new yellow brick road, this is the beginning of my mega long cycle(s) of hope, positivity and luck! This is the cycle that I'm going to get Clomid, and in the next cycle eggs will pop out all over the place, and I WILL get diffed! And Lo! I have spoken, and it shall be so! and woe betide any consultant or act of nature who defies the word of Boom

Bunny heh, never occurred to me to wonder how they, er, get it on target... Definitely get the show on the road though Aqua, it's taken months and months to get things moving here plus you get the fun of imagining your OH getting stopped and searched by the police on his way to make the jizz-drop at the hospital I also have an arcuate uterus apparently.. I think maybe Kuma does too?

Kitty you're a braver berry than I, the mere mention of baby showers puts my hackles up! But good luck with it smile

Sid that's as bad as the flipping 'gender reveal' donuts I saw the other months with pink/blue fillings! Seriously, the baby squad need to leave inanimate objects alone!

Bunnygirlie Thu 20-Jun-13 21:55:39

boom my DH said the pot got stuck if you know what I mean lol

Do you think the word of boom will help us all?!?

MrsB00Mbastic Thu 20-Jun-13 22:00:52

I don't see why not, I have plenty to go round!

BlindKitty Thu 20-Jun-13 22:31:23

boom I'd prefer to be 'in control' and strong as opposed to 'invited' and feeling weak - do you know what I mean?

barking just because clomid didn't work for me doesnt mean it won't for you. Remember my dh's morph was slightly low!

Thundercatsarego Thu 20-Jun-13 22:53:37

bunny eh? Stuck? On his willy? Eh?

blind - I totally know what you mean about being in control. I think I'd still struggle myself but I am far more grumpy and cynical hesitant about those sorts of things.

Am wondering now if I should be trying some of these sweeties...?

<starts building massive yellow jenga game>

MrsB00Mbastic Thu 20-Jun-13 23:00:31

Go for it thunder, kitty's got some that fell off the back of a pharmaceutical van...

Thundercatsarego Thu 20-Jun-13 23:19:24

<sidles towards kitty clutching a sweaty brown envelope containing £3.63>

MrsB00Mbastic Fri 21-Jun-13 06:30:55

Morning grumble alert!

Ok, Kim Kardashian has always annoyed me because of claiming 'fertility problems' despite getting diffed in three seconds flat. But to name that poor baby 'North West' is ridiculous. It's not a puppy, novelty names are NOT ok! <chunter chunter>

GooseyD Fri 21-Jun-13 07:55:43

<skulks off the shuttle where I've been hiding and joins Barking and Boom on the CLOL>

Just been playing catch up on the last 15! pages of sick pets, Barking's poor DH and a whole host of unwelcome aunts to stay. Doesn't look like I've missed a bfp? Was really hoping that yellow brick road had ended in a few.

Kitty and Pip good luck with the iui/ivf - when did/ will it start?

Barking how long was your last lp? Sorry you have to wait to start sweeties! And that's HILARIOUS about your DH's friend!

Aquarius had the chance to kiss and make up yet?

BlindKitty Fri 21-Jun-13 08:16:23

boom thunder I feel like some kind of drug dealer lol. You are best waiting for the docs to prescribe it as they'd really need to monitor you. Also, putting my week of meltdowns down to clomid as well as not normally so irrational!

goosey feels like forever! Was told 4 months in feb, now being told possibly sept.

Bunnygirlie Fri 21-Jun-13 08:33:01

Ugh North fecking West, what a stoooooid name! I agree boom can't stand silly celeb children names!!!

goosey helloooooooo, where you been girl?

Ooh ooh ooh I 'll be back for yellow brick road jenga later!!!!!
