I've started a new thread as we ran out of space!! Hope everyone find this...

Update from me: I'm on clomid cycle 2, 50ng day 2-6. Currently day 18. Last month my day 21 bloods were 39.1 which was up from 21 without clomid....

Feeling quite positive, but think that is only as I am mid cycle!!

Pipdini Tue 02-Jul-13 21:41:47

Hey everyone.... Hope you are all feeling ok!

Sammy, what day are you on??
Feather- what month are you on now?? Are you having progesterone 21 done as well??
Mazzie I'm on 100mg this month for first time.... See if it makes a difference!!
Charlie, your progesterone is really good, makes me think that even though mine was over 30 it was still quite low.... Do you know what is 'normal'?? How are you feeling, just so relieved I bet!!

Baby dust all round xxxx

Hi everyone, hope everyone's well?

Charlie lovely to see you still posting here! How are you feeling?

I'm CD26 and starting spotting last week. 2 neg tests so I don't think this month's for me sad I spoke to my GP and as she's given me 3 months of 50 with no joy, next step is a lap&dye - has anyone had this? I told her that I'm not convinced I've ovulated this month, so I've had 2 blood tests on CD22 and CD25 to check prog levels. IF I didn't ov I go to 100mg. I'm really hoping I didn't, I'm scared of the lap & dye sad Find out on Thursday.

Feeling down today. Feel so annoyed that you're told for years that "there's no safe time" and how you have to be really careful because it's so easy to get pregnant...and it's not that easy at all!!!

Pip! Hope you're well. This is my fourth clomid cycle - third one on 100mg. Yep re progesterone - had great response on first round on 100mg - prog was at 85! Then last month, nothing - it was at 3. sad
Can't sleep as anxious about the scan in the morning. Grrr! Where are you at right now Pip?

Maybemyrtle! It's not over till af shows! I have everything crossed for you. Lap & dye not so bad btw. Bit weird, but over quickly.

Hope everyone is doing ok. xxx

Ladies, I got a faint line this morning! shock I posted pics because I don't really believe it shock and more shock. There's no way I'm getting any work done this morning, ha.

Testing again tomorrow with a posh clearblue digital one.

Wanted to share with you because I've been whinging and negative about everything - so finally a happy post from me!! grin grin grin

Feather thank YOU especially, your post prompted me to test again flowers

charliedrinks26 Wed 03-Jul-13 13:59:48

omg maybe!!!! i just checked out your pics smile there is deffo a line!!!! congrats!!!!! smilesmilesmile test again tomo!!!! smile huge congrats i got my bfp on cd 27 as well smile

pip : hey yeah releived but still a bit anxious just want the next 6 week to fly by so i can get scanned and then i feel ok and maybe relax! ha! i dont know what "normal" but my consultant said anything over 30 means it occurred but ive read lots of different opinions on it really some drs have said less and some more so i would go with if it was over 30 your in witha good chance smile

feather how was the scan???

hope you dont mind me still posting on here ladies, ive just found this is such a supportive thread not quite ready to leave just yet smile


FeatherFeather11 Wed 03-Jul-13 15:43:06

OMG Maybe!! That definitely looks like a line to me! Congratulations! Such ace news!! grin

Charlie - it's great having you here! I don't want either of you to go as its inspiring to be in contact with people who have been through what I have and have gone on to get pregnant! You're proof that clomid works and an incredible support. thanks

Went for second scan today and the one follie on my right ovary has grown from 9mm on Monday to 13mm today - CD11. Not sure if that's good but it feels positive and I have to go back on Friday for another scan. Hoping it'll miraculously get to 18mm so they give me the trigger shot before the weekend. smile

Maybe: again, so happy for you! Yay!


maybemyrtle Wed 03-Jul-13 17:45:48

Thanks so much!! grin I couldn't be more excited - I had really given up thinking it would ever happen smile Have just done a digital one and the word "pregnant" made me cry/hyperventilate a little bit all over again. blush

Charlie how are you feeling? Any sickness yet?

Feather, hope your scan goes ok on Friday, those measurements sound positive to me too smile Fingers firmly crossed!

Baby dust to all xx

Sammy13x Fri 05-Jul-13 09:31:32

Omg there is sooo much positivity on here. Congrats to you aswel maybe that's brilliant! I on CD3 of my second cycle now and still not had my blood results back so I'm hoping they didn't wante to increase my dose! Did Any of u ask to have your scans cuz I've not been offered anything like that. No bloods or anything now til December! Baby dust to all x

FeatherFeather11 Fri 05-Jul-13 10:24:41

Sammy - I didn't need to ask to be monitored but I definitely think you should as there is a chance with clomid, that your ovaries can over stimulate and that could be dangerous. If I were you, I'd call the clinic and ask to be monitored. It's just bad practice if they don't. You may have to be quite pushy with them! xx

mazzie40 Fri 05-Jul-13 11:01:48

Hi ladies smile. I'm on cd7 and took my last pills this morning smile. It's great to see lots of positivitysmile. All the best to us all and lots more baby dust smile. X

Sammy13x Fri 05-Jul-13 14:35:31

Hi feather. I've tried ringing gynae today but I've gotta wait until Tuesday for them to ring me back. My GP gave me my day21 results which was 43 on 50mg.... Is that good or bad as they won't tell me because they didn't start me on the treatment. It's all confusing. X x x

FeatherFeather11 Fri 05-Jul-13 15:21:48

Sammy, 43 sounds like you ovulated! I'm no expert, but pretty sure that's the case! Really do push for ultrasounds when you talk to the gynae on Tuesday. Maybe even mention if you're having any twinging pains etc - basically, give them a reason to feel like that HAVE to scan you. In the meantime, chill and enjoy the sun! wink

I'm convinced this is a lucky thread - so many BFPs in quite a short space of time! Hopefully the rest of us will be next! Planning on treating myself to a lovely glass of wine tonight! grin xx

FeatherFeather11 Wed 10-Jul-13 18:56:17

How's everybody doing? Well, I hope. Anyone in the midst of the dreaded 2ww? I'm a few days in and starting to feel sad that it hasn't worked. Irrational, I know.

mazzie40 Wed 10-Jul-13 19:17:12

Hi Feather. I'm on cd12, don't think I've Ov yet, been having slight crampy bloated feeling since cd7, but today slightly more. It's early in the 2ww for you Feather so fingers crossed for you smile. X.

FeatherFeather11 Wed 10-Jul-13 19:38:27

FeatherFeather11 Wed 10-Jul-13 19:53:02

Oops! Weird double post from my phone. Sorry! Mazzie, are you doing OV tests at home? Fingers crossed for you this month. X

Sarahb8990 Wed 10-Jul-13 21:01:36

I'm in the 2ww due on Saturday according to fertility friend. Even having clomid hasn't settled my cycles anythin from 28-37 days!! This is my last round so I'm hopin it works but not holding out much as the last 5 didn't.
How is everyone? Hope your all ok x

Pipdini Wed 10-Jul-13 21:45:33

I'm now on day 20, going for bloods tomorrow. I know it's weird isn't it that just a few days in you can get down, but kind of know this is ridiculous.
Sarah, any symptoms??
Mazzie, what does are you on this month??
Feather, what day are you on?? What monitoring are you doing??
Charlie, maybe... How are you two doing??? Everything going well I hope xxxx

FeatherFeather11 Wed 10-Jul-13 21:56:53

Sarah - you never know! Hope this is your month!

Pip - I'm CD18 - got the hcg trigger last Friday, so ovulated over the weekend. Used opks and got positives right through till Monday. Going for bloods this Friday, which will be CD20. Nervous! Do you get your blood results fast-ish? Last two months I've called in the afternoon and they miraculously had them.

Did anyone hav OV pain? I had one follicle and didn't seem to have any pains this month - the odd twinge but nothing major.

Hope you're all well! We CAN do this! Just want 10 days to hurry up and pass!!


mazzie40 Thu 11-Jul-13 09:03:08

Good morning ladies smile. Feather, I haven't used opk's this cycle, but was thinking of getting some today. Pip, I'm on 100mg, first time. I woke up early hours this morning with a bad cramp, only for a few mins and ok now but ouch it hurt. Hopefully it was my egg popping smile. Have a lovely day ladies and lets keep the baby dust coming our way smile. X.

tryingforsolong Thu 11-Jul-13 11:46:30

hi everyone, just a quick check-in because I've ordered myself not to obsess this month.

I'm on my second month of Clomid, 100mg and today is CD21.

The first month (on 50mg) extended my cycle from 27 to 30 days so if I go by that AF is due around 20th July 2013.

I'm not being monitored - my GP has prescribed the Clomid - but I definitely felt ov pains around CD 15/16. I've had extreme bloating and lots of wind again, really uncomfortable but it seems to have passed today! grin

I'm hoping a more relaxed approach, plenty of sunshine and a few glasses of wine will help this month.

Good luck xx

maybemyrtle Thu 11-Jul-13 14:51:05

Hi ladies smile

Sorry for not posting sooner - I felt a bit off topic... Everything going ok here, although trying not to get too excited yet, such early days.

Glad you're all doing well. I know this won't help with the symptom spotting but I can honestly say that I knew something was different at about 5 dpo. Oh and those cheap internet super-sensitive preg tests are rubbish! I was still getting negs with them but a positive with an asda one, boots one and clearblue one (yes I triple checked!!).

Take care and baby dust to all xx
