Hey everyone. Just talked to the doctor and NO ovulation again this month. But, NO sadness yet cause I kinda knew i wouldnt ovulate because I never do (only wondered if i would because of the hsg and provera last month, etc.) !! So, i will be starting provera monday and then my first cycle of clomid days 5-9 as soon as af arrives!! Timing is exactly as we wanted as I leave for holiday in teh morning!! It will be perfect to get a week of relaxation in before we come back and really dive into this madness!! Everyone have a great and fertile week while I am gone, ill be thinking about all of you and hoping for lotsa eggs, super spermies, and sticky little beans Talk next week!!
Hi Sarlar - From what I've read, Clomid is most effective for those that don't ovulate on their own, so hopefully this may end up being a good thing for you! Enjoy your vacation.
Nina - I think I usually Ov the second peak day of my CBFM, but it's just as likely to happen the first peak. Ideally I would like to BD the night before the first peak and both peak nights. Although that's what I did last time & I'm still trying! It sounds like you should be able to cover all bases. Just two more nights! It gets old, doesn't it?
Preggies! - Thx for the input on exercise. You both sound like major fitness junkies - so am I! I will take it easy this time. Maybe that's what I've been doing wrong.
Jess - thinking of you, hoping your early stages are going well. I so hope this is it for you.
Hi all - am also clomid cycle #2. I had an early mc on cycle #1 and it looks like I am not going to ov this month as am cd15 and not a sniff of a line on an opk or a high/peak on my cbfm. But i am due to ov from my "dodgy" side so maybe next month....
sarlar..happy hols hun..have fun..when u r back from it u gotto start ur other fun part ;-)
Nina -Hope u r done with ur BDs..fingers crossed for u dear..
Preggies! -I hope u r jus doin fine..jus be careful about exercises though..no heavy breathing exercises..
Jess -I too do hope this is it ur month.
Dragonmum - am on cd15 and till today no +OPK I have been testing from cd11...so am too not sure if am going to Ovo or not..but we jus keep doin the BD every other day.. am really not sure y am still getting a -VE OPK the test line is "NOT SEEN" at all..not even a faint line is there) am going crazy too..anyways lets see if we do Ov late this cycle for some reason...
lola - so where r u upto dear ? Hope this is ur month too
I wish all of u lots og good luck and baby dust for a BFP..hope May is a lucky month

Lola, thanks for the ticker advice and the moral support, you are the best! You must be gearing up for the BD marathon soon I guess? What day will you start?
Sarlar, I'm tipping you won't read this until you get back from holiday, but bon voyage! Shame about the ovulation this cycle, but great that you will be able to start your first clomid cycle soon. And enjoy a few guilt free drinks on holiday too!
Kel, thank you for posting all your symptoms, that is great! You can bet your bottom dollar I will be paging back and obsessing over ALL of those next month after my first transfer!
DragonMummy - I was really sorry to read about your loss. It's good to see you pushing ahead - it must be hard. Really hope this is the cycle for you
Nina, you must be exhausted after all that BD! Put your feet up girl!! I have to say, the one thing I am considering an upside with this IVF business is an end to the baby-making BD marathon! Sending you some good vibes.
Faith! I think you are doing all the right things with the BD. Just keep at it and hopefully you will get that peak in the next couple of days
Caz, 13DPO for you. Hope the witch hasn't showed - thinking of you.
Daisi, hope you and the bean are both good!
Day 5 of down regulation for me today. In the absence of a ticker, I will just tell you that means about 35 days to first transfer. It will all be pretty quiet for me, until my first appointment with the IVF nurses next Friday.
Hope everybody has a great weekend (and there is a violin for good measure!!)
Just got back from the hospital and I have one little pip inside me. As it is still soooooo early they have taken MORE blood and are going to check my levels again today. They said they will get back to me later with the results and then re-book me in for another scan.
I am going to stay positive and for now focus on my 'Little Pip'
Hi DragonMum & Faith - last cycle was my first time on clomid & I didn't get a peak reading until CD 17, so you might just be ovulating a little later than you think. Keep testing.
Today is CD8 for me, so I'm still taking the clomid through CD9. I won't start testing for Ov until CD12 or so. Last time I ovulated a week after the last pill. To be honest, I'm not feeling very hopeful this time around. I just don't feel like I can expect a different result by doing the same thing. I know that's not logical when it comes to ttc. I've been reading about the odds with clomid & IUI, and I'm pretty sure I'll be doing that next month. Who knows, maybe my less hopeful attitude will make it happen this round.
Thanx for all the well wishes!!! I really hope it works.
Dizz - nice pic!!! Thanx for all the symptoms, now I'll be obsessing with them for the next 2 weeks.
Lola - I really hope you O soon!!!!! C'mon little eggie you can do it!!!
MrsJa - have some crazy until you next IVF - you just never know!
Faithpatience - I really hope you O this month. Just because there is no even the fainth line - it doesn't mean it wont happen!!!
AFM - Well my marathon is over!!! And I am exchausted!!!!! Today I am on my second Peak day (day16), and so far we bd - 11, 13, 14 at 1AM, 15 at 11pm and this morning. I really hope we cathed that eggie. I am pretty sure I have O yesterday because my ovaries was very sore throught the day and today nothing. The only concern that I have is that I had no ECWM....... (from what I can see- maybe there was some inside, but none outside). Only a little amount after I weed yesterday - that was it. So I am not that optimistic....I guess time will tell.
