I started with a bleed on Monday 27th April and it was lighter and shorter than normal. It only really lasted about 2 days and was bright red in colour on CD2. I then had a couple of days with yellow/brown thick discharge which I thought as strange but since I had a bleed just carried on with the clomid. I was a total emotional wreck last week and even left home Wed night (returned home at 10pm lol). THIS EXPLAINS IT!!!!!!!!
I am getting NHS direct to call me back about taking the clomid... when I researched there is mixed feelings about the impact but can't do anything about it now! I am trying not to panic!
OMG OMG OMG kel, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!! Congrats! That makes two of us now!!!!! I hope everyone else joins us soon!!!! What fantastic news after the couple of weeks you've had! hehehehehehe I am absolutely thrilled for you! Now we can be bump buddies as well!!!!!
I am so happy to see some BFP's from clomid!!!!! I am kinda in the same situation as you (well before your BFP)
My DH and I have also been TTC for 4 yrs now - unexplained infertility (had 2 miscarriages). This month I decided to give clomid a chance. Nothing to loose right? I ovulate every month, so maybe this will give me the boost!
Today I am cd12 and another HIGH on CBFM. I see you didn't get your PEAK until cd16. I am thinking same will be for me.
I am taking prenatals, royal jelly and robitussin for cm. I really hope it works!!!!
Anyhow - congrats girl and enjoy it!!!!!!!! ( i know you are being cautisly optimistic - but enjoy as much as you can!)
Thank you lola....sometimes I just think it will never happen. It's been very long and hard 4 years of TTC. When I got my bfp last January (it was a miracle) I was in disbelief!!!! It never happen to me naturally before. Anyhow, it was a very short lived dream - I m/c 3 days later.
Now....I am trying to stay positive and deep down I know I'll be a mommy one day, but when??? I don't think I can wait much longer....
Anyway, I really hope you and all the other ladies who are TTC, get their bfp soon!!!!
OMG KEL!!!!!!!!! I was out for dinner last night so I didn't get to log on! And now this morning I see this!!
Here comes the emoticon super-combo!!
It didn't even occur to me that maybe you were having an implantation bleed! I am SOOOOOOOO delighted for you!
I agree with the girls, I think the NHS will tell you it's all good about the clomid, but do let us know! I read somewhere that the baby can't absorb anything from you for the 1st 5 weeks, but not sure if that's true.
Wow, this month is off to a great start!!
Nina, welcome to the thread. I'm really sorry to hear about your previous losses and the long road you've been on. I hope you have great success with clomid, like some of the other girls in this thread have had.
Lola, what day are you on now honey? Finished your clomid yet?
Just a quick update: I have had brown spotting today so went to the hospital to be checked out. They confirmed that I am pg (yippeee!) and that my HCG indicates pregnancy too. The doctor examined me and said my cervix were closed (which is positive) and did not seem overly concerned about the brown spotting. I am beginning to think that this may be a result of bding yesterday. I have got to go back on wed for them to check my HCG again...just to make sure that the my levels are increasing nicely. Oh... I am starting to feel a little more positive just writing about it!
Dasii: Thanks chick! It would be great to be bump buddies.... we even live in the same area (Midlands...small world or what?) I hope everyone else is able to join us soon. Just out of interest have you had any spotting?
Nina: Welcome hun! I too never ever thought I would be writing this on here. I am still in shock and keep on checking my clear blue digi lol. Before clomid I ov around cd14 but last cycle it was cd16 (two days later). I also used conceive plus which seemed to keep the swimmers up there a little longer :P Good luck with your journey.... just remember....it does happen even to us long time TTCers so don't give up hun
MrsJA: Hello my lovely! I'm loving the super-emoticon combo! Can't believe I have got a BFP! It really explains my emotions last week. I have now got to do a total u-turn on my work decision though! I was going to hand in my letter this week but it just seems stupid as I would lose out on my maternity benefits. Knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel makes me think I can get through it! Do you think I am mad???
Kel, I agree about your job. You might as well stick it out so you can get the maternity leave. Just ease back a bit now and try to dial down the care factor! Hopefully now that you are pg you can just try to do the bare minimum!
I'm looking forward to hearing the update on Wednesday about your HSG levels!
Nina, how you getting on with that peak? I ov'ed on CD19 when I did my clomid cycle, but I am usually way later than that. My cycles are all over the shop!
jmg, great news on the follies. What CD are you up to now?
All good with me. Day 2 of down regulation (which is the first bit of my IVF cycle.) I might see if I can get a ticker going... It's hopefully about 37 days til our embryo transfer. Exciting!
