Clearblue says morning, but a lot of articles on the internet says around 11am-8pm...I'm confused Just want to make sure I do not miss my date!!! I'm praying for twins!!! Either or That way I'll have my three that I wanted!!!!

Please give me info on this topic...

I'd go with the instructions. I don't know if the monitor you're using is the same as the one in the uk but I always used it in the morning and have got peaks every month but we don't know that my O is strong enough hence the clomid. I've used IC opks and have had positive in the morning and negative by evening too so I've just stuck to clearblue monitor! Good luck!!

The clearblue ovulation tests work differently than ordinary opks. Like the digital smiley-- I believe they detect estrogen as well as lh. Fmu is best for detecting both hormones that the test is looking for! Fertility monitor works the same way. Always fmu! I hope that helped, I'm out and about right now so wasn't as detailed as I like.

Yeah that's what I have now, the smiley's and blinking smmiley's but these also detect estrogen 2 days before LH goes up. So, guess I will follow the directions.

I always miss so much during the day
Haha!

Hi Ladies!!! I had a terrible headache last night and through this morning. It finally went away. Not sure what that was all about. Been cramping really bad
I know my cycles have been irregular for so long but one thing has always stayed the same...about a week or two before AF comes I get terrible cramps. And they get worse when we BD and I "finish". THIS STINKS!!!
I'm sure they seem worse now because it's a functioning cycle

BBs were really sore last night and this morning when I woke up but that has since went away. But my darn nipples still hurt!

Anyways...

OoOo - Hot flashes...oh no! I am so sorry! And that's funny about making sure hubby doesn't waste the good stuff

Kmr - You're right about the OPKs...I guess I shouldn't worry if I did get my + finally. I'm just really worried it's not going to work this time for some reason.
I got BFP on 9DPO like you did!!! I thought I was imagining things! My lines were super strong by 12DPO (FRER). And I even had a nice + on a blue dye.

I'm just ready for tomorrow....I get my bloodwork done. I am hoping I will find results out on Thursday. FX!!

Oh I'm sure your bloods will be good! The symptoms you have just seem to be a good sign to me !

Cd 7 for me. Taking last clomid pill in just a minute! So tomorrow I will start using my clearblue easy fertility monitor and opks! I'm stoked!

Have any of you ladies felt more tired when on clomid? Or is that just me?
