    Hey ladies- I am going to be starting clomid in February. Anybody also waiting or want to be buddies?

    A little information about me... I was ltttc DS for 8 years. Our first round on clomid was our miracle and I got pregnant.

    Well when he was 4 months old (November 2014) we started ntnp. Fast forward to June and we started ttc and did a round of left over clomid in August. Finally saw my ob in November and got a prescription for clomid.

    We decided to start it in February since right now the timing wouldn't be the best for the due date. And I'm trying to lose 20 lbs before starting hoping it will be more effective than August as I didn't even ovulate.

    So I am pretty excited to try again. I have been getting more broody over the last few months.

    I will be starting clomid 50mg cd3-7 in February. I'm a little nervous, this is my first time taking it. I can be your cycle buddy if you like. I was a member here a few years back, just came back last week. Me and DH have been ttc#2 for almost 4 years. I have secondary infertility due to a Mirena migration resulting in surgery. Now I have mild scarring on the walls of my uterus and annovulatory cycles. I'm hoping the clomid works for us because TTC naturally just isn't working. We were both getting real depressed so we took a break for a few months. Went back to the obgyn last month for my yearly checkup, Dr. Mentioned clomid. I was debating taking it because I can't afford any monitoring, my insurance won't cover infertility. OB said monitoring temps and using opks should be enough since I don't have pcos. So I'm reconsidering, Im going to have him call the script in and I will start it in February. I'm really nervous and scared. I read about hyper stimulation and that it can kill you, so I'm freaking out of course. :laugh2: but our plan is to start DH on fertilaid, count boost and motility boost supplements. I'm also going to take fertile cm and ovaboost supplements, preseed and softcups. Will also be tracking O with bbt and opks. Lots and lots to do. I'm also going to be losing weight while TTC because I am overweight.

    Hi. I'm thinking of taking it in the new year.

    I do ovulate naturally but not had much success.

    I took it last June for the first time and got my bfp but it sadly end in miscarriage. So I'm feeling a bit nervous about taking it again but starting to feel desperate at the same time.

    Friends have just announced their second child is due and I've not even had one yet in the time they've started :cry:

    Well rest assured if you did get hyperstimulation you would know and could get medical help.

    Sorry for your loss c beary.

    I did my first round unmonitored with pcos. And it resulted in ds. I did a round in August and I didn't ovulate. So I decided to take a break and try and lose weight. I haven't had much success but I'm making an effort to eat better at least.

    So its pretty painful to hyperstimulate? I'm not going to confuse it with AF cramps? Thats good to know. I'll know what to look out for. I understand the losing weight thing. I am 260 pounds myself and I need to lose about 100. But losing all that is going to take forever and I don't want to wait that long to TTC so I'm going to lose what I can in the meantime and eat healthier

    I have never personally experienced it but I know a gal who did. She ended up in emergency it was very painful. She was on injectables.

    I was 220 when I got pregnant with ds. I had a pretty healthy pregnancy but did have really bad blood sugar toward the end so I sad induced. But he's a healthy and happy little guy now.

    Ultimately I would like to lose 60 lbs. But my goal before ttc is 20 lbs.

    I could do with loosing a bit of weight too. Might try that before I start clomid again. I just find the whole ttc thing so depressing that I tend to eat my way through the tww :dohh:

    I was 160 when I got pregnant with DS back in 2007. I gained about 70 pounds with that pregnancy, it was crazy. Seemed like I was always hungry. He was delivered via emergency c section because he was footling breech. I was having back labor at home for two days and didn't even know it, I thought I was just having my normal back pain :laugh2: My water broke at home, was at the Hospital 20 mins later and I was 10 centimeters dilated, his foot was hanging out of me. So there wasn't time for an epidermal, I was put under for his birth. He was happy and healthy though. 8 pounds 7 ounces :laugh2: I am kind of scared for when I conceive number 2 as I'm sure the csection will be planned ahead of time and I won't know what to expect. That epidural thing freaks me out. Needles freak me out :laugh2:

    Yes, I completely understand. I eat when I get depressed too. Heath Bars are my weakness.

    Emotional eater here too!

    I had an epidural with ds. It actually wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I plan to do it again if I am induced. If I go naturally I want to try minimal pain meds.

    How are you ladies doing? I am waiting for af to show. I am hoping in thevery next 3-5 days. Then I decided to start my first round of clomid. I plan to do two rounds and then take a break. Until probably May and also talk with my doctor as it will be my third unsuccessful round. Assuming we don't get pregnant of course.

    Hi krissie, good luck. I'm doing one last natural cycle before we see the specialist again in Feb. Then I'll decide whether to do another try of clomid.

    I have my last pill tonight. :wohoo:

    Now I just gotta wait and see if I ovulate. I am having all the signs I did with my first cycle which resulted in my bfp. I am having night sweats/hot flashes and sore bbs. So hoping its working and I do ovulate. I think I will start opks on Saturday since my hypothetical fertile window will be the 18th-23rd.

    Fx it happens soon.

    Been crampy for several days and slightly emotional. So taking those as good signs. I've started opks and negative so far. But I don't expect a positive before Tuesday, and more likely closer to Thursday.
