Hi ladies, AF got me yesterday am, which means that I had the longest cycle that I have charted yet, at 31 days. The only thing I changed was by taking a b-complex vitamin for the entire cycle, so perhaps that's why the added few days? My spotting started at cd26, which was 11-12 dpo, so I suppose that's a good thing?
Sorry that AF got you! Horrible
So glad to hear about a longer LP! 11-12 dpo sounds really good! I'm lucky if my LP lasts a full 12 days, usually my spotting starts at 8 dpo.
Well woke up this morning at 10dpo to a BFN and spotting. Joy! Trying to keep my head up. This doesn't mean I'm out, and my temp is rising, something my chart hasn't really done before. Hoping it's still a good sign.
Your chart looks good Daydream! Despite the spotting
I'm on my last clomid tablet tonight, not sure what to do this month. Take B-complex, go back on the Maca, stop using my softcups? - I'm defo not temping or stopping my OPK's that's for sure! I just feel like I need to do something different. The more I think about my TTC journey, I think there's something else up. I was hopeful when my progesterone test came back no ovulation that that was the reason no BFP. But I really think I have ovulated, maybe not every month & maybe not from my left where the cyst is, but I don't think Clomid is gonna be the miracle cure I was expecting. I know it's still early days on the Clomid and not to get too disheartened that it didn't work first cycle, but I'm sure whatever is causing the spotting is stopping me getting pg. And like I told the FS in my email, the month I get pg, if I am spotting I am gonna be so concerned of miscarriage! . Oh dear, feeling a bit sorry for myself tonight! DH has been away for 2 nights and is back tonight, so looking forward to him coming home! .
BTW have you noticed the Christmas smilies? Loving x
MrsPTTC - Those Christmas smilies are SO CUTE!
Not sure about the supplements for this month. I thought I had read not to mix herbs with Clomid, so I would vote for no on the maca. As for the B vitamins, just googling appears those two can be taken together (http://www.babyandbump.com/problems-...ame-cycle.html ). Good to know for my next cycle too.
Thanks for the link Daydream. Maca isn't a herb though, it's a food found in Peru, you can put it in smoothies but I've heard it tastes vile so I was getting the capsules (which DH still takes as it's supposed to help the .) You know I think I'm gonna try the B-complex, off to Holland & Barrett I go! x
