Issacralph it's good to hear from you, I hope you are back on with good news soon. Hopefully the not trying will lead to a bfp.
Mama - did you ov?
Sorry that AF arrived Happycpl
How are the rest of you?
I'm good, had my anomaly scan and all looks fine. Still no idea on gender, even the sonographer couldn't tell as the baby was moving so much and in a weird position. I was thinking of having another scan at 32 weeks just to check on growth but I might not now as I think I'll be too tempted to find out and I really want a surprise.
Anyway hope everyone had started off the new year well and FX for lots of BFP coming in xx
Hann- I would also be really tempted to find out! Glad everything is going well for you. Nothong going on with me...did a opk today just because I had watery cm but it was deffo neg. which I figured it would be this early. Just waiting for o now...
I had a quick look over the posts of the last 2 week but it was yesterday so I'm afraid to comment incase I miss something but shur I'll give it a go!!
Hann - Glad the scan went well - I would always have it a surprise dunno why tho but I def would!!
Elt - Hope you Ov soon - what CD are you??
Mama - Have you Ov'd yet?? What CD are you??
Happy - same to you what CD are you - we are usually pretty close!
Issac - Sorry you feel so down about the whole ttc thing. We all get like this, I have totally wound back on the whole thingy its just too hard sometimes. Hope you are ok and pop in anytime for a catch up
Afm, cannot remember if I told ye the witch got me she was due the 27th but arrived first thing on 28th morning so I had a couple of hours of going to bed thinking she may not be coming but I suppose I knew she was as I got a BFN on 24th & 25th (yes I know I said I wouldn't test on Christmas Morning but the BFNs the day before kind of softened the blow and I was so busy cooking etc... I didn't even get time to think about it or even tell DH I had taken a test! So I'm on CD 11 today will prob Ov somewhere between CD16 & CD18 so I'm a bit of yet. Had fantastic weekend of Bding just a shame it was too early!!! Ah well was fun anyway!!
Cd32 for me and still no ov and my temps are wacky as ever. I've been doing some googling and from what I'm reading its not uncommon for clomid to work once or twice then not work. Especially with pcos and being overweight of which I am both! Ugh
So I called my doc today hoping to get some insight and maybe a prescription to jump start AF so I could get on to a new cycle and try the higher dosage of the clomid (which will hopefully do the trick!) but after waiting on hold for awhile I finally got the receptionist who told me my doc is sick and in the hospital and she just cancelled her whole week. Yuck! So sad for my doc ( I really like this one!) and of course sad for me because now what???? Knowing my body it could take weeks or more for AF to come on her own.
So I started reading up on takin clomid again without AF. I've read on a bunch of different boards that if clomid doesn't work doctors will have you try clomid again without bothering to wait for AF. So I'm thinking that's what I'm going to do. I have my prescription refills all ready to go and it's definitely been long enough since my last clomid round.
What do you guys think. I feel at a loss because I can't talk to my doctor about it but so many people have posted about this same situation I don't think it would hurt.
How is everyone else??
Banana - sorry about the bfn good luck this cycle!
Mama I'd be very tempted to do it. I think you've waited long enough and if it brings ovulation on then why not. I haven't read up so don't know what the negatives are if any but if you are happy with the possibility of anything else happening then just go for it. Do you have enough prescription to just up your dose yourself or do you need to see the doctor for that?
My doctor uped my dose last time I saw her but I was already into this cycle so I've been waiting to start the higher dose until my new cycle but apparently that's not happening. I called to refill the prescription, I'm going to just go for it.
We finally go the all clear to DTD from my doctor, she didnt want us taking any chances until we saw the baby's heart beat, so we did it! it was great- sorry I know its a little much, but I was just so happy, its been a while
have another untrasound on Friday afternoon, ladies please pray everything it still going well. I just had a friend on another thread who just found out her baby no longer had a heartbeat.. Oh, it just breaks my heart, and makes me so worried about my baby... like, did we wait long enough???
Runnergrl - so glad the scan went well! As for DTD I'm sure it's fine. Tbh I had the same fear this time because with DD I had a low lying placenta so couldn't DTD until I got the all clear at 36 weeks, so this time we just held off until my latest scan at 21 weeks (so didn't DTD for 17 weeks!) because we wanted the all clear from them. I was very sick for 14 weeks though so it wasn't a big difficulty not doing it for a large majority of that though. I'm super cautious though. On my 'May mummies' thread loads of people were DTD then bleeding afterwards then they kept doing it again and the same thing would happen and I couldn't understand why they would keep doing it if they got that happening the first time. Weird! I'd say that if nothing happened this time then you are fine. I'm also fairly sure that your friend didn't lose her baby because she DTD, it was just one of those horrible things.
