    I booked a private gender scan for dec 7th. I'm unfortunately having problems with this pregnancy and am gonna be on bed rest for most of my pregnancy. I'm having tons of cramps and contractions. I'm huge for 1. I look 6 months along already. Go in my journal, I have belly pics and scan pics of babies.

    Hi ladies! I know this post is super old, but I had a blast reading through all the pages and just wanted to chime in, secretly hoping some of this baby dust will rub off on me!:rofl: I've never read a thread more lucky than this one. A little about me; I've been TTC for about 2 years. My doc suspects I have adenomyosis. The hubby is perfectly healthy. Currently, we're on our third round of clomid (100mg) w/HCG trigger shot. Today I am 1dpo. I'm really hoping and praying for a BFP this cycle. We've been pregnant once, but that was very short-lived. We so desperately want to be parents. So the TWW begins and I feel really good about it, especially after posting on this thread!:fool: Wish me luck = )

    I have a question ladies! I had the HCG trigger shot on 10-04 and I felt the ovulation pains on 10-06. Well, I'm still having pains in my ovaries (feels like ovulation...still) and an intense amount of pressure in my rectum area. Any ideas what this could be? How long do you ovulate? Am I 3dpo or not?

    Sounds like you may have had more than 1 egg to release. That and the fact that your ovaries swell big from the meds. You may be cramping from ovulation and your ovaries being swollen. I think your 3dpo. The trigger makes you O anywhere from 12-48 ours after you take it.

    Thanks for replying! At my u/s I had 5 mature eggs on my left ovary, which is where I feel a bit of pain as well. Intercourse hurts, sneezing, passing gas (TMI), everything hurts. I'm also very bloated. I have this unsettled feeling in my stomach since I ovulated. I pray this is my BFP month. These meds are killing me :cry:

    :hugs: I totally understand how you feel. I've ovulated 5 eggs at one time with an iui cycle last year and it was super painful for several days after. I didn't conceive though due to my poor egg quality. Hope you get your BFP! You def have a good chance with 5 eggs.

    Thank you! How many rounds of clomid did you do before getting your BFP?

    My re wouldn't prescribe me clomid. I did 4 rounds of femara and got preggo on 4th try but miscarried. Did 3 rounds of follistim after that with no luck and moved on to ivf due to my poor egg quality.

    I'm not familiar with Femara. What does it do?

    Same as clomid but with less side effects and doesn't thin the lining like clomid can do.

    I wasn't aware that Clomid can thin your lining... I think I might asked to be switched if this cycle isn't my BFP. Thanks for that info!

    Hubby went out and bought FRERs today and had me test. To my surprise, it was a faint BFP. I'm 8dpo today 10dpt and don't want to get sooo excited because I know there's a possibility its the trigger shot. What do you ladies think?
