    The only time I had it checked it was 34, that was my first clomid cycle and my dr thought I could be preggo but nope. Tomorrow will be early since I O a little late so I won't be concerned if it's low.

    I felt the same way after starting clomid. I had the peace of mind that we know what's wrong and the doctor is doing what he can to help us achieve pregnancy. Knowing sets you more at ease than you think would. Hoping and praying for all of us!!

    I was so unbelievably crushed after my first clomid cycle 2 years ago, and after my first iui. I think I've learned to not get my hopes up too high, although it's hard bc "hope springs eternal". I hope to stay in a hopeful but realistic place. And yes knowing and having info does help.

    Also, I don't really know what's preventing, we are sort of unexplained...maybe my husbands improved semen will do the trick

    The sharp pain is back. It's a little different, but very sharp, it makes me stop and notice.

    Ugh I'm not feeling good in all sorts of ways right now. I feel nauseas and like my tummy is full of air. Prob more to do with the Mexican food I had for lunch!

    I'm starting to second guess getting the progesterone drawn today, on one hand she will give me a higher dose if it's low, but it's so early! Monday would be 7dpo. But she really seemed to want it done on day 21, which is tomorrow, and she told me to do day 20 instead. Not sure what it will prove if it's at the wrong time...

    From what I've read and heard others say, it's at its peak or at least close to it, by 6 or 7 days later. You might be surprised!

    My progesterone was 7.1 at 1dpo so confirmed ov and reached 36 by 8dpo. You shouldn't have any problems at 6dpo getting an accurate reading

    On any fertility med I take I always have very sore insides nd BDing can b painful because of the ovaries being so tender nd swollen. Oh the things us women put ourselves through lol but it will b totally worth it in the end. As for the progesterone results, mine generally sit around the 40's but I have had them as high as 97.7 nd not been pregnant.

    Good luck ladies.

    Well today is 4dpo, not 6. But wow if you had a 7 at 1dpo then maybe it will still be ok.

    It sounds like they can vary a lot. I'm mainly testing so we know if I'm responding well to 50mg. I'm ready to take a higher dose if not. Hoping I won't need to because I'll have a bfp instead. Good luck to you too!

    How is everyone going? Where are you at in your cycle? I'm 11dpo and got bfn yesterday at 10dpo. I'm feeling discouraged but then my temp went up even higher today. The true test will be to see if it stays high through tomorrow. What do you guys think?

    I'm back on CD4 :cry:...Hubby and I decided we're gonna do a 3rd round of Clomid then talk to my doc about doing another lap to clear up the Endo that's grown back. I'm exhibiting a lot of the same symptoms I had BEFORE I originally had the 1st lap and found out it was Endo. We'll see what he says...
