I used to temp but I'm not doing it this time around. It's so maddening! One of my friends likened it to "taking a pg test every morning, only instead of a positive all you get is not necessarily negative". I thought that was pretty accurate. I'm not sure how I'm going to manage testing.. My wife hates early testing to I imagine I'll try to refrain, at least until beta day. We'll see, though.
It's so fricken maddening. I wasn't going to do it either but it's so much a habit after all this time. I shouldn't have done it. Gl with the clomid. I haven't taken it. Fx the side effects aren't total bull!
It is maddening, but I totally get it. Once you start it's impossible to stop. Hence the not starting this time. Plus, we're currently caring for a 5 week old baby so any temps I would take would be rubbish.
But try not to fret too much on yours today! You're not out until you're out!
I was very happy this am when it was back up. I think I am going to wait until Thursday to test providing the temps stay up. That will be 12 dpiui. I am trying SO hard not to symptom spot and just remain calm.
Clomid day for you today? Are you taking it before bed? I took my letrozole before bed so I could sleep through the side effects lol
I was told to pick a time between 5:30 - 9:30 and stick with that. I get home from work at 7 so I figured that sounded as good a time to me as any! I've taken clomid before so I'm not too worried about side effects. All I experienced was some hot flashes and a little extra moodiness. Totally manageable
I'd love to join your group. I'm on CD1 and about to start my 3rd IUI. Hope this one works! A bit of background:
we've been TTC naturally since June 2012. This summer we started seeing an RE after many months of frustrating, emotionally tricky attempts. I have had PCOS since I was 17 but its very mild and I try to be really healthy to keep it mild. I had my 1st IUI in October with 50mg Clomid and Trigger shot. I thought the 2nd IUI last month was going to be the ONE but it wasn't. My RE wanted to try 3 IUIs before regrouping and discussing other options.
The most frustrating thing about it is that I live 4 hours away from the RE clinic cause I live far away in the mountains. So I have to make a trip out of the whole experience every month and take off from work to do so. Through all these frustrations I'm just trying to stay calm and happy for the most part. Though I'm getting impatient because I'll be 35 in a couple weeks and I feel like I should have started this treatment stuff 4 years ago.
