Same here for us-semen analysis on appointment 1, and a whole host of blood tests. Taking the semen to the blood place for analysis was an interesting drive-the whole time I was just thinking to myself 'don't speed or so anything stupid otherwise you'll get pulled over and have to explain the police why you have a vial of semen under your arm!' haha!
So we definitely know it's me not him. It made me feel pretty low for a while afterwards but I was also relieved for him that everything was ok on his end! =)

Thanks for the advice girls. We know for sure the problem has been me since we started (as i will not ovulate without Clomid) but i guess its one of those things we have avoided that we just dont want to know if there could be a problem with him as well, that will just be a complete shock horror and we aren't prepared really for that (as well). But if AF does show on/by this Wednesday, a semen testing we must go.
My FS hasn't suggested DH to go onto a multi vitamin, he just emphasised that i need to be on the pre-conception ones, and have been religiously since before we started trying.

I'm currently on cycle 3 of Clomid (100mg), and still waiting to O - think it will be Sunday or Monday. Hurry up body...! The good thing is that cycle 2 worked, in that I had a proper period - woo hoo!!! Fingers crossed now... (for everyone)!
MyBabyBells - my FS said it's fine to drink while on Clomid.

I just took a OPKs tonight and there was a very faint positive line.. Very faint but both me and hubby could still see it!! That's a good thing isn't it or does those have to be a strong positive? I'm going to do another tomorrow afternoon and fingers crossed it's stronger! (I'm currently cd14)
GirlX- good luck

Hey missmya- The line needs to be the same or darker than the control line to be positive. That make sense??? They are very different to hpts.... Unless you use clear blue digital: when you get a smiley face you are good to go

Yip, as said above, the stronger the colour on the 2nd line, the closer O is getting.
Does BD-ing each day before, on and after the expected ovulation day fine, or does this not give the semen enough time to 'recover' and produce stronger sperms? My FS says to BD on days 13, 14, 15 of my cycle, but we BD 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 - just to make sure. Is this too much??? I know some say 'every other day', but how true is that?

beckybabe84 - i was told to BD every second day, to allow time for the sperm to reproduce! I guess every FS has its own little thing.
As for me - I'm taking my last provera tablet today, then waiting for AF to arrive before i start with my second cycle of clomid.
