    Thanks for the welcome, girls. It is a relief to be able to share this ride with some people to be honest.

    Sunnydaze, I could relate to what you wrote about writing the month off and going to 'what next' mid cycle - I'm doing that at this end too. I am day 13 at the moment and absolutely no sign of egg white...I've been through the other CM's but haven't gotten to the last phase as far as I can tell. I am wondering if because of the clomid I might not experience much egg white...confusing

    jruss - congratulations on your follicles - awesome news! Hope all goes well for you this month

    Sorry, just need to have a quick vent to please turn away now if you are looking for positive comments...I am just soooo frustrated. In all honesty, before I started hearing other peoples O troubles I was absolutely certain that I have Od every cycle since being on clomid...because they have been painful and my FS checked me the first time and confirmed that O had caused the pain. So why arn't I hurting????? Arrrggghh, I hate this part of the cycle!

    Ok vent over, I'm not sure how everyone else feels about it but I really want people to post happy, positive comments whenever they feel the need. For me they really help and I would hate to think that anyone would withold happy news because it follows a negative post.

    I hear ya sunnydaze - I never thought I would be so disappointed that my boobs aren't sore the tiniest bit. How strange is that? Masochistic is what it is! But I'm with you on the good stories, although every time I see a bfp I'm envious, it also gives me great hope, especially when it is someone who has been trying for a while, and I love love love hearing about each new one

    Birdie - Welcome to our little group! It's just the right place for some TLC and support!

    Funky - You are a wonderful lady, and I hope you get through the month. We are all here for you and thinking of you

    jrusse - Clomid makes me sad too, very scarily depressed. I just read the other day that it is a side effect. It's not good. I got extremely depressed last cycle, and not looking forward to my next one because of that! Can you tell me about the trigger shots you have?

    Elly
    - Some people don't get a BFP until a week or more after AF is due, so hang in there hun, it might be around the corner!

    Sunny- Good luck hun. Don't write it off just because you're not having pains. for you!

    Sorry if i've missed anyone.

    AFM - I'm pretty devastated. My progesterone level was only 2 so I obviously didn't ovulate. My FS words were - "This is bad". Awesome! Wickednails I'm sure you can imagine his tone when he told me! He's so straightforward and emotionless! He said that we're going to double the dose for my next round up to 100mg. If it doesn't work then, then my last go on Clomid will be at 150mg. He said he wouldn't give me anymore than that. He said given my height and weight, I should really be ovulating on this medication - it's meant to work for 80% of women.

    So I'm just wondering, if it turns out that this Clomid stuff doesn't work for me, what are the next options? I mean what other alternatives are there before IVF? I really hope we don't have to go down that path

    I'm having terrible cramping and heeeeeaaaaaaappppssss of CM but not the EWCM, so i'm not sure what's going on. I'll probably start taking Provera tomorrow and get this show on the road.

    Oh hunny buuny sweety pie ....ie clap your hands.......Im sorry you did not O. But for him to sit there in his perfect chair, emotionless and say "this is bad", is the most awful of things say. I know how straight and blank he can be and it frustrates the hell out of me (so much so that im getting a second opinion). He should of explained the next steps to you, but as you know he doesnt give up him information for free. Im not sure what is next, but i hope 100mg the same as me will be enough for you to O. As you said he wont go any higher dose than 150mg, can i ask why??

    Sunnydaze...you can have lots of O pain and not O.......serial non O'err hear and ive had plenty of pain.

    AFM...mood is better today, i get a little teary but im ok, maybe a little depressed, too many hot flushes....all from the clomid, but other than that Yahoo school is back. Although im not going to tafe as yet, still unable to do hairdressing so it looks as if im having to quit or postpone for a while.

    Clap your hands, I'm really sorry to hear that. I will be going to IVF if clomid doesn't work, but only because I have endo and apparently my chances will be much better if I don't leave it too long after my surgery. But even though I haven't read much about them, I know there are several other options usually available before moving on to IVF. Hopefully the increased dose of clomid will do the trick, my mum had to have double and triple doses for most of her many pregnancies so I hope you have the same luck


    I still haven't got bt results from FS even though tests were done before easter (nagged them again today) but my temps are still high so I guess that is a good sign. But confirmation would be nice!

    Hey girls, thanks for your comments and thoughts. I really have a good feeling about this cycle.

    Clap Your Hands - I am having a Pregnyl trigger shot on Wednesday to induce ovulation because I did not ovulate last month on the clomid alone. This injections should make me ovulate 2 days later, so on Friday. Maybe this is an option for you if you did not ovulate???? I am so sorry you didn't ovulate. I was shattered last month when my progesterone was so low too. Maybe you should just ask your FS about the shots and see what he says???
    Good Luck

    Beautiful ladies BIG hugs for you all!!
    this journey is freaking tough!!! so many hurdles so many things to go through, even before you ovulate. Your body lets you down and it is so hard to not let your heart and spirit be broken. I am here to let you all know that it can happen. 9 years and I never gave up and I have my DS and DD and I was told I would never ever conceive!!
    Thinking of you all xooxxo

    Ellymoe aghh I don't know how you can stand the wait. I go and see my GP and he calls the pathology place I go to so I have my results before I see my FS lol I am sneaky. I hope that your temps stay high hunny and you get your BFP xoxoxox

    wickednails precious precious lady!! xoxox thinking of you always hunny. I am not cranky moody but very emotionally moody atm!!!

    Clap Your Hands to you hunny!! aghhh I hate specialists like that!! My FS and GP are so amazing, only because I spent 8 years with mean men who made me feel like I was a total failure as a woman when I went to see them for advice!! is there anyone else you can see hunny!! I am thinking of you!! I really hope that you ovulate this next cycle hunny xoxoxox

    Sunnydaze hunny!! that happened to me last cycle, my breasts wern't sore. I didn't start getting pain at cd12-13 it was later and the pain was different and I honestly think I stressed myself out of ovulation. I was so close my progesterone level got to 15 and over 20 means O. I ended up with 4 cysts 3 all over 3.5cm I so thought my Clomid days were over for the next few cycles. Thank god my FS knows my body and said that I will always have cysts. They have not gone away totally at all since last August!! and he just said keep going at 50mg. If I haven't ovulated this cycle I have no idea why my body is feeling the way it is!!! wishing you all the luck for O hunny!! xoxox

    birdie16 I did the same thing last cycle hun see above. I was so angry with my body aghhh I hope you do ovulate hun thinking of you

    Jruss good luck with the pregnyl hunny and catching that eggy!! xoxoxo

    Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

    Totally ok to vent Sunnydaze. I think at times it's what we need to do. Day 10 for me and I thought I'd escaped any clomid side effects. Oh boy was I wrong! All teary .

    Good luck ladies! Hope it is *the* month 
