And thatís exciting that you started your Femara today! Fingers crossed for this being a lucky post and we all get our BFPs in time for the November/December holidays!

Fertilaid is an herbal medicine you can order it online. With our first, we took it with fertilCM, ovaboost, countboost (DH) & motility boost (DH). This time we are only trying just the fertilaid. I read that it shouldn't be taken with clomid not sure with femara but I guess it'll be tge same.

to everyone....

I don't think they recommend taking any other fertility boosters while taking femara or clomid as it can impact how the medication works. I'm not positive as I looked it up and couldn't find anything specifically femara, just clomid. Femara is a newer medication for fertility so there doesn't seem to be as much info. You could def. bring it up to your doctor if you end up doing another cycle...hopefully that won't happen though.

2ww are the worst!! lol I told my husband that I need to start a hobby like sewing or knitting or something.

Ah, ok! Maybe Iíll bring this up with her if the first 3 cycles of Femara donít work, but hoping that wonít be the case!

And yes, I need to find a hobby during this 2WW.. the past couple nights Iíve felt so tired, probably because of all of the hormones being processed by my body, so Iíve had little motivation to do things to bide the time after work.

to us all!!

Hope you get your and don't have to use those supplements. But if it doesn't, you can always look it up and get your doc's opinion about it. Maybe all you need are some herbal supplements.

TWW is a killer... All I wanna do after confirmed O was sleep hoping I wake up one day and it's test/af time.

How are you feeling FX? You're getting close to testing time!

md- I'm with you there! Though my husband and toddler would go out of their minds without me awake. lol

AFM- I'm good. I took my last femara and af is over so I just have to wait for O now. I think that's a close second to the TWW. lol

Hey Jules! Iím feeling pretty good.. nothing too out of the norm, a little nausea, increased sense of smell, and continued cramping/bloating but Iím still not trying to read into the symptoms because the trigger can be the cause. Iím trying not to count down the days to test day, but itís definitely on my mind. Surprised I havenít broken down and tested at least once.

How are you feeling from the Femara? Are you timing O with OPK this month? Should be coming up soon!

Good job holding out! That's super hard.

AFM: I'm good. The only real symptom I get is headaches and hot flashes. I woke up sweating every night and it's been cold so I know it was just me. lol Right now I'm just holding out til this weekend to start my OPK's. I was going to temp, but I keep forgetting to get out my thermometer before bed. lol

Happy belated Thanksgiving!!

So 2 days after I said how proud of myself I was for not testing, curiosity got the best of me and I tested on a cheap-o test and got a BFN. That is at 10 days past trigger and 9dpo. I haven’t tested since and I know that there’s still a chance (real test day is suppose day to be the 29th), but it really bummed me out. The only upside is that I know the trigger is out of my system now.

How many days past ovulation have you all tested when you received your BFP?

Cheapie tests take foreverrrr to show a line or even progress. I got a vvvvf squinter on 10dpo in the evening(nobody else saw it and I questioned it). On 11dpo in the morning I still wasn't sure if it was really there so I ran out to grab a frer. The frer showed the line right away so I didn't use any more cheap ones for my own sanity. I attached a pic of my 11dpo ic.

Keep us updated and don't count yourself out yet!!
