Hi Honey! I think I'm coming up on O pretty soon. Started getting ewcm but still neg opks. Now it's time to start bd'ing! How's your cycle going?

HoneyWright Apr 21st, 2010 15:38 PM

whooohooooo, sounds positive hun. Keep doing the OPK's, ive brought a pack of 50!! Im on CD8 will start testing on day 15ish.

Do you know what I find strange is that my boobs hurt a little, and they hurt loads when I was expecting AF last cycle. When ive read about AC though it mentions how it helps reduce your boobs hurting, and then helps with BF. MMM strange.

honey.... i am using the clear blue monitor and now on cd16 and still low. i know the last time i used it i used 20 sticks to get a high so im not too worried yet. anyway i bought some Asda ovulation kits and used one yesterday and today. got a really faint line both times. got really excited then today i got a bit suspicious that the clearblue is still low so i phoned the number on the pack for advice. was told that unless both lines match in colour its a negative. why they dont tell you that in the instructions i dont know. so im no where near ovulation.:nope: but im not giving up and ill keep testing. i just hope it happens. fingers crossed. good luck girls

Hi girls, just enjoying catching up with this thread and hearing about success stories! I'm still no where near ovulation and on cd 36:-(. Having no signs and neg opks still. Am not a happy bunny as this is now 7days later (minimum) than last month. This baby business is so difficult. Need a major cheer up I think!:nope:

sorry you are all waiting for Ov, im sure it will happen for all of us, may take a few months for AC to help.

Faint lines will turn into darker lines im sure. Yes the line needs to be the sme colour if not darker than the control line.

im off to see a new consultant on tuesday afternoon. going to ask for metformin and might be cheeky and ask for clomid but i know ill get refused. has anyone thought about using soya its supposed to be the same a clomid and used in the same way. i looked into it but read you cant use it if you have a thyroid problem which i have. having said that im due to see my OTHER consultant on wed about that so im gonna ask him what he thinks and im also hoping he tells me im non toxic by now. (i was/am overactive but didnt lose andy weight)
honey have you been told they will give you clomid when your bmi is at 35? i was told that when i was trying for dd but i didnt need it in the end.

If anything my body is more confusing now than before ac! :(
I never picked up LH on opks before ov whereas now im on the 9th day of faint lines on opks but no negative! Grr!

amberdawn723 Apr 22nd, 2010 00:16 AM

Yay I have a + opk!
Here's the breakdown:
CD 17 8am- neg
CD 17 5:50pm- almost pos
CD 17 11:10pm- definitely pos!!
Sooo glad I tested more than once today. Looks like agnus castus has helped normalize my cycles thus far....went from a cycle of 73 days, to 35 days, to now 29 or 30 days (depending when I O, CD 18/19 + 11 day LP(if LP doesn't change from last cycle)).

Babydust to all the AC girls!!:dust::dust::dust:

Great news Amber, are you going to continue to test today? Get BDing hun, you will be our first BFP!!!!

shellyhunny Apr 22nd, 2010 03:24 AM

Grrrrrr! So far this cycle the meds haven't helped. AF is usually heavy, then light then spotting then gone. 4 days max. I'm now on day 6 of medium and feeling quite anaemic from it. I can't even take iron though as it effects the thyroxine uptake from my tablets. Whinge!
