Beeka I am still waiting for af and I took clomid about 3.5 weeks ago! So it's been 10 weeks for me now since erpc
I feel your pain and frustration Will be 10 weeks for me too on Friday! This is just silly
I know it is probably totally normal to have a delayed period after a MC but I'm just so impatient. My pregnancy never really progressed from about 5 weeks and HCG was back to normal fairly quickly therefore I can't understand why it is taking so long!!!
Have you had any spotting or anything? My spotting was tinged mucus with strings of red and about 6 fairly small dark red/black clots. Maybe that was AF? Have you ovulated since the clomid?
Well my cbfm picked up the peak while we were away in California. I always check this against opks so we went to the supermarket to get some, I did the digi opk in the loo there and dropped it under the next door cubicle cos I was rushing! The woman handed it back then a few mins later it was a smiley face. Wondering if dropping it made it smiley now as 4 hours later another digi opk was negative. My lh surge usually lasts a day at least. So... Not sure I even ovulated as I wasn't temping either. I only have the peak on my cbfm to go by... I am going to go for a scan to see if my lining has thickened next week. I need to know!! It is so frustrating isnt it. I hope yours comes soon. I am not sure but i think you need to have more than spotting and a few clots but then again it coiuld be a kind of af, they can be very light, especially if you never ovulated. If you never ov'd then the lining can't build up so no af. keeping fingers crossed for both of us.
Good luck to you both I still haven't ovulated since the mmc (nearly 8 weeks now??!!) and really think that brown bleeding gp said was af was just left over blood from mc. So frustrated have been having cramps like af cramps since friday and all OPKs are negative and clearblue fertility thing still reading high fertility (since CD8 so not convinced!!)
Got an appt with gp on the 25th so if nothing go to ask for bloods and a scan, even if I have to pay privately I need to find out what is going on with my body- it feels like its not mine any more!!
Hope both your bodies sort themselves out soon!! If I find anything out from gp (or my googling obsession that has started), i'll post it on here and if you hear anything helpful would be soooo grateful if you did the same!!!
to you both and anyone else in this horrible situation
No I am not pregnant now!!!!! What happened is I did an OPK at the same time as a HPT because my CBFM said 'high'. Then I ran a hot shower and plonked the tests down. They fell on top of one another and that believe it or not causes the line on a HPT to turn positive as it reacts with the OPK chemicals. Don't try this at home, it has been a lesson for me.
On a better note my OPKs seem to be heading towards positive again so I wouldn't be surprised if I got another positive OPK and a peak, my body is MESSED up! Here are the pictures to show you how I thought i'd gotten a positive:
So now I am over 10 weeks past ERPC and no af. Going for a scan on Friday morning at 11am so I'll let you know.
Thanks lovewithin, well my opk is nearly positive! If it carries on then i'm sure it will be in the next few days. This is what usually happens before ov. After the clomid it was weird the opk strips never got darker even though I got my peak on the CBFM. So I am now thinking that i never really popped the egg and this is my 2nd chance!
