I temper this morning and it even lower than the past do days. Sex was a little painful with the pressure on both sides of my ovaries. I am still achy on both sides today and my back hurts. No sure what to expect. I did insert preseed before intercourse and inseted a softcup after so everything stayed in I also wore it for the 12hours it said. I will keep you ladies posted.

Dogmommy I never usually ovulate strong enough either so I was praying that the clomid and metformin would help with that. Fx it did, I am 36 and I don't know much more of this chemical my body can take. My symptoms change every time so ii cannot pinpoint which feeling is going to result in a bfp which results in the worst 2ww. Oh and did I mention I was military so everything I do has to be timed perfect due to the high demands of work and always be gone from DH.

Well I'm on CD5 got two more days of Clomid to take and I will have finished my second course my AF is nearly gone I've noticed that Clomid has shortened my cycles and also lightened my AF. I know I'll only be CD6 tomorrow but I'm going to start OPKS as I reckon Clomid made me O early and don't want to miss it, so far still suffered no side effects to Clomid not even a hot flush so I don't know whether that's a good thing or bad we shall see. I'm still waiting for my appointments to come through for follicle tracking and fertility clinic x still trying to remain positive and hopeful even though last month has knocked my confidence slightly with AF showing x

Mocha is the painful sex bc of the meds? I'm on my 3rd day of clomid and haven't noticed any side effects. We haven't bd yet bc they wanted me to wAit until genetic testing came back but I'm thinking about just doing it anyway. We were trying for over a year and never had genetic screening done. I don't want to miss our chance if clomid makes me O early but they are saying I won't O until next weekend. Ugh I feel like I'm always waiting for something. Do you all feel the same?

I bought some cheap opks going to take one today I think! I don't think it's ever too early with clomid angela.

Angela....I think the clomid did made my cycle shorter and lighter too which I was greatful for since I have a crazy seven days cycle. I purchse my opk on Amazon very cheap 40opk and 10 hpt for $8 and you get it in about two days. The brand is Clinical Guard and they haven't fail me yet since I got my O every time with them and my 14dpo bfp so you can test as many times your heart desire. Well the good thing is with the follicle tracking at least you know you are growing a mature egg that will definitely cause you to O. I was going to do a ultra sound to see the size of my follicles and I got a pos opk that day so I changed my mind.

Dogmommy.... The pain was because of o. I bd Valentine's weekend and no problem just this past two nights even my back started hurting all the symptoms for me to O. You can test when ever you want so you are more aware. Remember you still have to give that follicle time to grow, I think it's about 2mm a day so testing cd10 is no bad but the most reliable is the temp because you can have a pos opk and still not O due to a lot of factors stress, pcos and get another pos later again in the cycle. So I think it's a great idea to temp to see you temp drop the same time you get a pos opk and to see your temp rise for 3 days to confirm that you did ovulate for sure.

Afm I bd again last night still had some pain I just adjusted my body so I would be so uncomfortable. I temp this morning had my 1st temp rise so we will see if the is a continues increase for the next two days so I can confirm O.

My AF use to be heavy too and last the full 7 days but now it's heavy for three days then light for a couple days before disappearing I've just taken tablet number 4 and AF virtually gone gorgeous one more tablet tomorrow still now side effects either I'm going to start my Opks tomorrow as I'm sure last month I Od before or around CD10 so we shall see. I haven't had my date through yet for follicle tracking but I'm hoping it comes through next week along with my fertility clinic appointment. I'm not as excited this month though like I was for last month I think it's because I never got great results last month but we shall see, last month we BD everyday for two weeks I think we'll change that to every other day as from reading up every day is bad as the sperm count is weaker and needs a break to replenish so we will see if that works out better for us xx how is everyone else getting on x

Mocha are you going to get labs to see if ovulation was stronger this time. My brother in law is in the service as well and I know what you mean he's gone for months at a time sometimes just weeks but still! Thank you for your service!

Angela I hope you catch that positive opk! I know what you mean about bd. We've done every day and every other but not sure which the best route is.

Ashley that is very cool!!!!! Have you had the questions for the past year and a half about when will you have a baby??? I just want to tell them I wish I knew! But until then stop asking! Haha it comes with the territory I suppose.

AFM today is my fourth day of clomid and I am an emotional wreck. Worse than I can ever remember. I happy cried and said cried all night. Not sure if it's just the idea of this process or the clomid. But DH has been my rock. And I'm grateful for that!

I have gotten questions and a few of our friends/relatives who got married AFTER us are pregnant or have had their children. Sigh.

I just kind of smile and my husband uses a generic reply like "whenever God decides"

Not many people know that we are having problems TTC except for our parents and a few friends that I confided in.

I was tempted to POAS today, but refrained. The first few months of TTC I POAS like a mad woman and it would ruin my day because I would get so hopeful. When I see BFN's it ruined my day. Now I just plan on getting AF and never test lol.
