I never had issues with OPk on Clomid or FE.

DD1 is OK. People are minimizing it. " She just had her tire clipped and she jumped right up"... umm, no she didnt.

She was crossing the street on her bike, about 3/4th of the way across and the guy turned right and then dragged her. She blacked out on impact and somehow made her way to the sidewalk. He kept driving with her bike under him about 25ft. Then stopped. Ankle cast, elbow brace, bruises, bumps, nightmares, scared to go out.... but no, just a clip and done.

--------
I hope everyone is doing well. i do at least read, even if i dont post!

Earth - that's awful! Thank god nothing worse happened. Poor girl. I can imagine how terrified she is (and you, momma)!

LAR - so good to hear from you! Sounds like life has been busy! I'm sorry you have to wait until February to try again - frustrating. Are you thinking of moving on to IVF in Feb?

I got my kidney results back and my kidneys are normal - yay! Heart, thyroid, kidneys normal! (Abnormal heart, thyroid and kidneys are markers of Turner Syndrome). My saline sonogram this morning hurt worse than my HSG (read: very painful!) but the good news is my uterus is normal too!

Hi ask! I'm really glad to hear you have been getting back some good test results-- it seems like you are definitely making some progress toward the goal of getting and staying pregnant. I hope to hear an announcement sometime soon! I have a really good feeling for you

I am not sure if we will go straight to IVF. Part of me says yes, and the other part of me says maybe we should try naturally for a bit longer, especially now that I am in school and things will be super duper hectic if I have a baby while I am in school. But then again, I am definitely not getting any younger, so maybe we'll start IVF as soon as we can. February seems so far off right now, so I haven't really talked to DH about it yet, but I should bring it up.

Earth I'm so sorry about your daughter. That sounds pretty horrific.

LAR good to see you back again! That really sucks that you have to wait 6 months. On the other hand, I can see why the break would be nice too! I ended up taking a break for August and half of September. You and I might end up doing IVF around the same time. I'm thinking April, but who knows, might be later. We'll do our last IUI in November. I can relate to where you're at though, its hard to know what to do sometimes!

Ask I'm sorry your procedure was so painful! It does seem though like things are going in the right direction for you. I think you'll have the next sticky bfp in this group!

Hey girls, Alliah here.

was an avid poster in one of the older clomid threads. Not ready to start ttc yet but already have my clomid prescription on standby.
More comfortable with the LTTC'ers as it took us 4 years to conceive our first.

Welcome Pinkee (Alliah)! This is a great thread of amazing and supportive women who I wouldn't have gotten through all of this LTTTC stuff without!

Hi ladies,

Just a quick check-in:
Thus far, my side-effects from Clomid have stayed mild. The hot flashes are getting more intense each time, and a bit more frequent, but they're still a good 4-5 hours apart and only last 1-2 minutes at a time so it's totally fine. I got pretty irritable on CD 10 and a bit depressed on CD 9-10, but I think that may have had more to do with my weight than the Clomid.

Today I had my first follicle scan, CD12. I was obviously hoping that they'd already be a decent size, but thus far I have two 9mm follicles, one on each side. I go back in on Monday, CD15, for another scan to see if we're any closer to being able to trigger. As it's my first month, I really don't know how "good" 9mm is for CD 12. At least there are two, so hopefully one (if not both) beefs up in the next few days! Mostly I'm just hoping to ovulate before Sept 25th, as my mom will be visiting for two weeks and we won't be able to BD for the first week as we're going on a road-trip to Bavaria and are sharing a hotel room.

I still haven't decided on the OPKs. I might start doing them tomorrow just for the heck of it. I have a ton of ICs, so why not? Not focusing on temping much, but if I think about it I take it.

That's great that you have 2 follicles! Some women just need a little more time to grow their follicles. Depending on how this cycle goes they might decide to increase your dose for next cycle.

By day 12 my follicles are usually in the 17mm range but my body always seems to O early.

I think that's great that your SE have stayed mild. I'm probably just a whiner haha.

AFM day 6. AF should theoretically be finished by today so I'll start taking Vit E for the next few days to hopefully boost my lining. If anyone is interested right now I'm taking a mix of Chinese herbs including vitex and myo-inositol, B50, 800 mg coq10, folic acid, multi-vitamin and now adding the vit E.

Belle - Glad your almost through with AF. Your vitamin routine sounds good. How's it been working so far?

As far as s/e, it probably helps a lot that I'm on mood stabilizers. That combined with being used to really extreme bipolar-related mood swings probably just makes any from Clomid less noticeable. Clomid also made me very tired, which actually helped my insomnia which always directly impacts my mood swings, so that probably helped too.

Oh, speaking of meds: My psych actually gave me a prescription for Zoloft yesterday. We had discussed it and I was going to wait until depression/anxiety symptoms got worse, but after discussing it with DH we both feel like it might be best just just start it now, and hope for a better base-line. It means I can drop my current anxiety med (which has had much less research done about it's safety during pregnancy), so at least I'm dropping one as well. I guess we'll see how I get on with that in the future.
