Hey girls!

I won't be entirely active on this thread since I'm still waiting (*sigh*) for clomid/metformin, but I'll be stalking. Still lost on my cycle and have to go natural until Sept 7th before getting anything. I'm excited for you girls. Fx for natural bebes!

Hello again ladies!

After 4 cycles of clomid and ovulation every time resulting in a i was forced to go natural while i wait for my FS appt...which is next week.

I got my smiley face last night!! It was so exciting! Even though i knew the IC's were + theres something about getting a smiley to make everything seem ok! lol.

So i took my temp this morning and it definitely jumped up! So for you experienced tempers, please take a look at it and tell me if its promising for ovulation! I know i need to wait 3 days before it says, but i'm PRAYING it confirms ovulation!

I hope we all get some great natural cycles!

Today is cd 18 for me.

Turboturtle80- Hello!!!! I am glad you joined the thread! I am sorry you have to wait till September! Waiting sucks, I know how that feels!

TeddyBearPug- How exciting!!! You give me hope.. I have been charting but I am confused by your chart…From my experience, I had a positive opk cd14 then a temp dip cd16 and a temp rise cd17.. By your chart it looks like you ovulated the same day you got your surge?? I know all of our bodies are different! My guess is that opks pick up surges 12-48 hours before you ovulate, so you must have a short surge and I must have a long surge! LOL. Anyways, I think that it looks great! You can check out mine from last cycle if you click on my ovulation chart at the bottom.

Whilst I was again being referred to a fertility specialist 18 months after having my Clomid baby I found out I was pregnant! So miracles to happen even without any intervention. I think it's good you are all soo positive about it. I can't say I was because I was convinced I needed Clomid and was waiting for that but somehow my egg got lucky and this came as a total shock. The amazement ended in a loss but hopefully I can get 'lucky' again. Best of luck to you all x

Hi TeddyBearPug - why were you prescribed Clomid anyway, what is your medical condition for this?

your chart looks great last month like a classic "textbook" ovulation. I'm really confused by my chart and the + opk and possibly ovulating the same day, but thats the way it seems to me. I really think that my body TRIED to ovulate starting on cd 12, but idk. I was having ovulation pains before then but i didn't record them and i also hard a close to +opk on cd 12 but it wasn't quite there and the next day it was barely there. It is so weird to see how your body works through charting, but i'm glad i'm doing it now!

We cd 11, 14, 16, and 17 and we plan on doing it again later tonight to cover all bases. I think we more than enough times??

My doctor suspected i didn't ovulate or if i did it was weak ovulatons. He did a cd21 blood test on me almost a year ago and it showed i didn't ovulate. I've also had 2 m/c's last year and he said that it could have been from the weak ovulations and not producing enough of the hormones needed to sustain a pregnancy. He had me track my periods for 6 months and i was irregular. So i was given clomid to make my ovulations stronger to support a baby. I was actually going to another doctor before that one and he didn't want to do anything for me. He was "all natural" and wouldn't even investigate a cause of m/c until i had 3!!! then when i was going through the 2nd one, he didn't even believe i was pregnant!! I demanded a blood test to confirm and it was + of course! ugh, i was pissed and switched doctors immediately. My new doc has been great! But now its time to be moved to a FS he says....I really hope i get a BFP this month and not have to go.

I cracked!!! I tested with an IC opk.. Here it is... Not positive, but way closer than I thought it would be at only cd11 and no clomid... I scheduled my ultrasound today for August 17th Wednesday (cd16).. I can't wait so see if my cyst has shrunk and if I am going to ovulate (unless I get a surge before then which I doubt).
