I think I have a stiff neck from clomid. The back of my neck and between my shoulder blades, like the upper half of my trapezius... I'm going to phone my doc, I can't find if this is an adverse reaction or just something "fun" to deal with.

No fun, Weebles. Hope it doesn't last!

I've noticed my pre-o temps are much higher than ever before...97.3-97.5 when they are usually below 97.2.

Weebles, hope your stiff neck goes away soon!
Sarah-Maybe I should ask the clinic about aspirin? When did your doctor to tell you to take aspirin, eg, from which day to which day to be effective? thank you!
What supplement are you all taking? I am taking prenatal vitamin and CoQ(the clinic told me that would be the most important supplement if I am going to take something extra).
I really want this bfp to stick! Baby dust to everyone on this clomid cycle!

I think I have a thin lining. My ultrasound a few cycles showed it was 4.7mm at CD30. It should have been at least 8mm. The doctor didn't mention it. I've been taking aspirin and trying to keep active. I'm not sure there's much more we can do. But it does mean if you get a BFP it might not stick.

Weebles, I hope that passes for you! Have you got a wheat bag and your other half on call to be giving you a massage. It's only fair! :P

Joy, I've noticed the same thing. My temps usually hover about the 35.8-36.0 but mostly they've been around 36.1-36.20.

Rawan, my doctor prescribed the aspirin when I got the BFP. Because I have lupus and had problems with my platelets the OB/GYN at the hospital said it was best I took it to 'sweep up' any antibodies hanging around. I don't have anti-phosolipid syndrome but he thought it was just better to be safe than sorry. I am assuming you can take it all throughout the month if they told me to take it until 12 weeks pregnant.

I'm also taking coQ10, folic acid, pregnancy multivitamin and metformin. I've also been taking evening primrose oil the past few days. I couldn't find anything to say you couldn't take it with Clomid so I decided to try.

I've heard that ovulating on Clomid can be quite painful but I've had no pain.

CD18 today and have to do the progesterone blood test on CD22 (21 is Sunday). I wonder if I ovulate today or tomorrow if it'd show anything.

Ask, my pre-O temps are higher too! I wasn't sure what was going on, I'm glad you mentioned that.

Congrats Rawan!

Sarah.. Painful ovulation?? I have hear people talking about it but didn't realize it was a clomid thing, I thought it was just heir normal. Yikes!

My stiff neck is better today.. First two days We're the worst. I'd wake up and be fine, after the pill it would be awful but would go away later on in the day. Today, third pill I noticed it but it wasn't nearly as bad. I still think next cycle (if there even is one) I'll take them at night so I can just sleep through it. Dr said they haven't heard of it before but that it was certainly possible as people react differently. I was told as long as it doesn't get worse I can continue. I'll do pretty much anything for a baby.

Rawan - did you get a bfp?

I'm feeling pre-o cramping which is typical for me at cd9. Took my last pill yesterday morning. Otherwise feeling good!

Sarah-thanks for the info! I asked the clinic about aspirin today, and they told me today my lining is getting thicker, and they don't think aspirin will help that much in my case. I prob will stop EPO tomorrow because I read it should be taken until ovulation, the clinic will give me trigger shot, and they told me I should expect to ovulate in the next 36 hours after the shot. I bought raspberry tea today, because I read it might help will thickening the uterus lining? (I read it should be red leaf raspberry, but I couldn't find it in grocery stores). Have you heard about raspberry tea? Does your clinic monitor you and tell you how many mature follicle you have?

Btw, everyone, I don't have bfp yet, I meant if I get BFP this cycle, I really want it to stick.

Weebles-glad to hear that your stiff neck is getting better! Hope you won't experience more side effects!

Ask-glad to hear that you haven't experienced much side effect!

Exciting Joy, hope it's a nice ripe egg

Rawan, that sounds promising. I know it definitely has to be raspberry leaf not raspberry tea. I'm sure it'll taste nice though. No monitoring at the moment except for the CD21 blood test. We weren't offered a monitored cycle and he was confident we'd pregnant within the 3 months.

CD19 today and I'm feeling fed up. No pains or anything to suggest I'm going to O. My CM is creamy/watery and my temp hasn't risen. My OPK was slightly darker yesterday but nothing else really points to Oing. I've almost resigned to the fact I'm not going to O before my blood test on Monday, if at all this cycle. So F---ing over it!

Sarah-have you considered a trigger shot? Did your doctor offer that? Maybe that way you will know for sure ovulation is going to happen?

Nope he didn't offer me a trigger shot. He was really hopeful that I'd ovulate around CD14 and I'd have a 28 day cycle and get a BFP in the next 3 months. I'll do the blood test on Monday and I'll ring up on Tuesday to see what the results are. I'll ask about a trigger shot and if there's anything they can do to 'save' this cycle.

Yesterday my OPK wasn't positive but it was pretty dark. Today it was fainter than it has been before. I'm only testing once ever 24 hours so it's possible I missed a short surge. I haven't felt any ovulation pain or anything. I guess I'll wait and see what my temp does in the morning and just keep BDing
