Niki – Welcome! Hope the wait to your appt goes really fast for you so you can get started on the Clomid asap. Keep us updated, Good luck!
Zoem – Far-out, you’ve had a bad little run there! That sounds really painful!!! What exactly did your FS or GP say to you when they told you you had heaps of follies on your L/ovary? So sorry about this cycle not working out and about your DH....is he feeling any better? Hopefully the Dr’s drugged him up to ease the pain. Enjoy your Bridesmaid duties!
Vickycutajar – Hey hun, sorry to hear your having such a bad run of it. Unfortunately I’m not in Geelong and haven’t heard of any support groups in that area. How about asking that fertility centre you were going to? They should know of a TTC support group. Good luck!
Trouverbebe - Welcome! I started Metformin in March and I’m still having a lot of trouble with it. I‘ve learnt a couple of things about what helps/hinders the effects on me though....I can’t have ANY chocolate. Like, AT ALL!!! I can only drink a tiny bit of soft-drink at a time which really sucks because I’m not drinking alcohol because of TTC either! I find a half a glass of Ginger-beer is about all I can drink if I don’t want to be woken-up with excruciating belly-pains and Niagara-fall poop in the middle of the night! Yuk. I also can’t eat too much greasy food. So, all in all, I’ve been losing quite a bit of weight with all the stuff I can’t eat and with all this extra pooping when I cheat and eat something I know I shouldn’t. Friends and family keep asking if I’m on a diet....if only they knew! Ooo...your symptoms sound very promising! At least it definitely sounds like you O’d! Good luck!
Ellymoe – Good luck, good luck, good luck for you this cycle! I’m starting to learn what twinges mean O’ing for me too so, I’m sure your right about your twinges. We tried one or two months of everyday bding but....I think every second or third day is probably the best way to go as you said, that’s exactly what we did most of the time....specially with my super-long cycles!. I remember one day, back in our early days of TTC, my DH turned to me and said...”sorry babe...I’ve just got nothing left!” lol....poor guy. hee hee.
Purpletulip – All the best of luck to you this cycle...how did your blood results go? Did it show you O’d when you thought you had??
Waiting – Hi! How did your bt go?? Did you O? Your symptoms sound exactly like mine when I did O. Rant to us as much as you need to...I’ve had tones of run-a-round with my FS in the past too and totally understand how frustrating it can be.
Blufiretail – How’s it going hun? Any luck with your OPK?
Angelanathan – All the best with your injections!
Lissa – Hi! Great to see your still about hun! So....how did your scan go today?? Bub and bubby growing nice and strong I hope? Keep those fingers crossed nice and tight for me for my BT tomorrow....SO nervous! Keep us up-to-date with all things "Lissa & twinnies!!" xo
Sammy – Can I ask what sort of symptoms were you getting before your BFP? Anyway, how’s it all going? Sinking in yet?? When do you have to see your Dr again? Do they do any extra monitoring because of PCOS or, once your UTD, is it just the norm pregnancy route of tests and U/S’s? Still super thrilled for you!
Good luck to every one else!
AFM – Ok, so I’m going a little stir-crazy......bt tomorrow morning to see if I managed my first ever BFP after my first IUI with FSH injections. Should get my result at about 1 or 2pm tomorrow arvo. Trying SO hard to not get my hopes up but it’s getting harder and harder....can I really be imagining all of these symptoms??? I have an absolute text-book “pregnant” BBT chart......if my bt comes back negative tomorrow, I’ve decided to stop temp’ing...even though I’ve been doing it every single day since the beginning of October 2009. If it’s really just teasing/tormenting me like this and it’s wrong then....the hell with it. My sister had just announced her first pregnancy and it would be so sooo awesome to go through our first pregnancy’s together and have the cousins just 3 months apart! My mom would have a right-royal fit to find out she’s suddenly going to be a first-time grandmother to two babies within a few months! Or....three babies!....I did have two dominant follies! Ahhhh.........the suspense!!!!!

Ladydee - yep BT all good. I did o, but AF arrived, so CD1 today
Clomid again tomorrow, and try again next month.
Hope everyone is well.

Trouverbebe - from what I've been told, even a small amount of weight loss can have a huge impact on fertility. So even though you think it's pathetic, sounds like it was enough to get things moving!
Ladydee - Ooooooooooo good luck ! I will be stalking BH tomorrow night so let us know! Oh and like the quote from your DH
Purpletulip - good luck this cycle!
Zoem - Ah that sucks! Hope both yourself and DH feel better soon and get back into action
AFM: I still feel something, almost like pressure in my ovaris, especially when I cough etc. Is this common? I've ovulated so few times in my life I really don't know! At 4 DPO today, which means I can actually have sex and it doesn't feel like a chore!

Vickycutajar - Sending lot's of your way. I'd try what Ladydee suggested and see if your clinic can recommend any local support groups. I know my clinic offered a counseling service so I'm sure they would have been aware of support groups if I needed one.
Thanks Lissa I still can't believe your having twins.
Ladydee - I've been thinking of you these last few days!! I have sore nipples but not like all day soreness just when I was in my Pj's and something would brush past them. I had mild cramping from about the time implantation would have occurred. The urge to go to the toilet more and when I need to go I reeeaallyy need to go and also vivid dreams. It still hasn't sunk in yet I don't think.... I've been on this roller coaster for so long that I'm still in shock. I don't think I'll be having any extra monitoring re the PCOS. I don't go back to the FS clinic until I'm about 8 weeks and then they will do a scan. I know a few of the other ladies had a few extra bt's to check their hcg levels. I'm going to my Gp tomorrow so I might ask for another bt just to make sure I'm on track. I do have heaps of extra appointments though for my blood clot condition I'm off to see my two specialists next Tuesday and Wednesday. How are you feeling?? You must have stronger will power than me to have not POAS yet. I'll be checking back tomorrow to see how you go!!

Sammy - a huge congrats to you!! So excited for you - hope you're doing well so far.
Lissa081 - congrats to you too!! Hope your scan went well today. Sending lots of sticky to both of you.
Angelanathan - good luck with your appointment on Thursday, hope the FS can help everything sort itself out soon for you.
Ellymoe - we may end up testing around the same time - I think I Od on Thursday too. it's good news for you this month - not too much longer to wait, but then way too long at the same time
Zoem - hope you're both recovering well and it's your turn for a BFP next month
Vickycutajar - welcome! Unfortunately I'm not in the geelong area, so I can't recommend any support groups as such - I wouldn't even know where a support group is in my own area. But I'm stalking BH and using this as my support group and feel it is helping me a lot. Sounds like you've had a rough trot so far, so I hope everything sorts itself out soon.
Trouverbebe - welcome! And good luck to you - I hope you have some good news coming your way. Sounds like your doctor is the opposite to mine - the GP I asked said no to metformin while ttc, who knows what to believe anymore!
Ladydee - lots and lots of luck and you'll be reporting a BFP back to us tomorrow. I really hope this is your month for some good news. That would be so awesome for your family to have 3 grandbabies on the way I've always thought that while a lot of work, twins would be great - and at least you wouldn't have to go on this long and emotional journey all over again (if you're only planning on having 2 anyway)
AFM - day 21 today, so had my first prog bt tonight. Results should be with fs in 48 hours - what's 2 days when I've been waiting a year for something to happen I'm sure it will still be a long 48 hours all the same. Also booked an appt to see Kate Stern in September as that was the earliest I could get in to see her. Got given the referral about 2 months ago, but it was so long to get in to see her, I went back to my gyno to at least get started on the clomid first. Of course I'm hoping I'll be UTD by September and then won't need to see her, but at least the appointment is there if it doesn't work out before then. I think I O'd last Thursday, but then again the pains/cramping I was having is the same as every other month...so I'm confused! Excuse the silly and naive question - but can you have O pains without actually O'ing???
Hope everyone else is going well, and good luck to those testing in the next few days!!

Omg.....Ladies, I'm trying to prepare for the worst...if that's even possible. Temp drop of 3 points of a degree today....on the last freak'n day! its the ONLY downwards motion of my temp in the last 8 days!!! And to make matters worse, I actually forgot to do a HPT this morning! Like, I was sitting on the loo with the stick beside me trying to work out what happened to my temp and what I could possibly have done wrong and I finished my wee with out peeing on the bl**dy stick! How ridiculous is that?! If I wasn't so devastated, I would laugh. DH couldn't believe I forgot to pee on the stick! Next thing that'll happen, I'll probably get my period on the was to my FS or something.......Aww man, why couldn't this have finaly been my time? How am I ever going to find the strength to show genuine happiness for my sister when I'll be hurting so bad and feeling so ****ed off with the universe? I hate feeling so me me me all the time, it's just not how I used to be.
Well, I don't think there will be any good news from me today but, I'll let you guys know all the same....x

Fingers crossed Ladydee!! Good luck!!

Sorry to thread crash, but Ladydee, I'm still holding out hope for you. My temps were funny after injections and at 15dpo had light spotting, .2 temp fall, then another .1 temp drop and bfp on 16dpo. Let us know when you can. Hugs to you either way.

Hey ladies, Thank you all for your support Means the world. xo
Yeah, no suprises here.....big fat negative. Wasn't even a chemical pregnancy or anything. I was actually starting to wish for at least a chemical as the day wore on, please no offence to anyone who has been unfortunate enough to suffer through one.
Ahh-well...I'm doing ok. Haven't really even had a teary or anything. I managed to do a diluted hpt just before leaving for work this morning which ofcourse came back negative so, I guess that lessened the blow this arvo when my FN phoned. What a sucky job for her to have to do huh?! I've even managed a bit of a laugh with my DH about forgetting to pee on the stick this morning....he still can't believe it.
A word of warning ladies....apparently progesterone pessaries elevate your BBT and can give you some classic "pregnant" symptoms like sore/achey/burny boobs, holding off AF, lower stomach cramps and pains, dizzy spells and plentiful mucus.
Angela, looks like we're going to be cycle buddies this time around and the rest of you lovely ladies are stuck with me and my long rambling posts....I promise I try to make them shorter but, it's impossible!
