Wow ftale, I can't believe they won't montior or medicate you because of your weight! It sounds like you have a wonderful exercise plan in place. I hope it helps with the weight loss you want.

Fx, I don't know much about clomid but perhaps the different days recommended are because you generally of later in your cycle that ftale does?

Told my parents this morning. I wrote a card basically saying sorry I hadn't told them monday, I just couldn't find the words and that I chickened out and needed the reassurance of the scan, but now wanted to let them know that I'm pregnant. Told them how far and when I'm due (technically mid May but hoping to get to mid-April).. Then I put one of the scan pics in the card. I made a little flower posy of bougainvillea flowers from our garden.
Got there and told my mom I'd discovered it was grandparents day this past weekend so "happy belated grandparents day" and handed over the card and flowers. She didn't even know it had been and said thanks and looked like she was about to say goodbye (I was on my way to work, just dropping ds there for the day). I said "you kinda need to open the white one now" (ds had given her a yellow envelope as well with a birthday party invitation in it). She looked confused but said ok and went to the kitchen to put the flowers down. Opened the card, saw the scan and looked up confused saying "and this?". I just said "read the card". She looked close to tears and just kept saying "oh wow. wow. oh wow" over and over. My dad walked in at that moment and she just handed him the card and gave me a big hug and then looked at the scan pic some more. Then said congratulations. My dad also said congratulations and gave me a big hug and they both told me to take it easy. She said she was so surprised. I told her we were kind of too but extremely happy. I think she's still in shock

Now to tell my boss... Wanting to get that done today. will wait another 2 weeks I think before making a general announcement. Need to tell dh's sister + family this weekend.

FX: UGH. Have you started spotting yet? I looked at my chart and have three different possible O dates....ridiculous. I stopped progesterone on Monday regardless. I should have had a bfp by now no matter when I ovulated.

You can drink parsely tea to bring on your cycle. I forget all the details or just wait. I'm waiting because I figure I do enough to my body with trying to get a good O...LOL. I ususally O on cd12 which is why I start 3-7 on the Clomid. I need time to get as many eggs matured as possible because it happens so fast. With Clomid it makes me O cd14 - cd 16 By then I've got some mature follies.

I don't do any trigger shots since I'm not monitored.

I hope we get AF by the weekend so we can move on. I have to schedule 3rd day test for real this time as I also have to do my HSG...no choice. My dh wants to see what my egg quality is like and if my tubes are open before we IUI (now that its been put on hold). I have the Castor oil packs to help with my reproductive organs. Suppose to help detox it. We will see.

Ftale any sign of af yet? Nothing her and still testing bfn. I thought I had 3 possible O dates but when I looked at my medical notes more closely, my lining was only 5.6mm on cd19 so I must've still been leading up to O a fair while away as I'm pretty sure it needs to be at least double that for an egg to implant. So now I'm thinking the ewcm on cd26 may be my best bet. So I could possibly be 10dpo, but more likely it's been anovulatory.

FX: AF showed up this morning. Very clotty, with old stuff and new stuff. I hope it gets heavier. I'm worried the Clomid killed my lining. Have to figure out how to make it thicker since I will be doing Clomid again.
Plus, I have a hsg scheduled and they won't do it if I'm bleeding or spotting still.

Isn't it crazy? 3 different O dates..lol. I think mine ended up being CD 15 or 16. I'm just glad it's over.

Hope you get a bfp soon!!

Ftale, could EPO maybe help with the lining? It should only be taken before ov when TTC though.

Huggles my Dr told me I couldn't take the epo next cycle with the clomid....?? I don't know if it really does contraindicate or if he's just extra cautious or anti supplements.

Sorry af showed ftale, if it's clotty surely that's a sigh your lining was ok? I thought if it was light/pink it could mean a thin lining?

Anyway here's to moving on!

I didn't know EPO and clomid couldn't go together. Never done clomid so only know what I've read on here from others using it.

Huggles there seems to be conflicting ideas, which makes me think that no one really knows if epo interacts with clomid or not! And of course a Dr is likely just to say, no don't take it. Whereas some people think it's ok. I guess it just becomes a personal decision.

Still waiting for af here....now the longest cycle I have ever had. I can't help thinking I've developed these cysts in the last 18 months or so, never used to have these problems xxx
