CYH- Thinking about ya and hope you're ok
aj - nice going, i know how good that feels to finally get a "normal" cycle length
Elly - good luck, good luck, good luck
Wickednails - I've only had 4 rounds of clomid, but all have produced different side effects. This was my first one with headaches which have now lasted for 7 days. But that could also be the result of too much chocolate, hmmmm, I think I prefer blaming clomid
Yay for long weekends! Just hope I get to spend it curled up in a ball with O pains
Results 151 to 160 of 1993

Wicked Nails - Good luck!!!
I rang to get my results of my BD but they're not back yet, so now i'm waiting until Monday to hear if I have O'd. I tell you what, if I didn't O, I've got something else to worry about. I've been getting so much cramping, painful at times too and been feeling incredibly dizzy this afternoon. I just want to know either way!!

Wickednails thanks precious lady, still feeling really sick, to the point I have had to take something for the nausea today. I am so tired and my head is so so so sore aghhhh!! I hope it is a good sign I ovulated this cycle!!
I am not cranky Moody that happened at the start of my cycle!!! but I am extremely emotional. I knew may would be but oh god it's harder than I thought. It is my nannys birthday on the 4th of may. My pop (who is the only person to ever make me feel loved, real love) passed away 2 years on the 28th of May. It is my first Mothers day since losing my angel babies in Nov and Dec last year. On top of all of that my mum goes in for major surgery on nannys birthday and the last time she had anesthetic she stopped breathing. I am really not coping to well at all and I feel really alone!!!
aghhhhhh May...it brings such comfort and heartache all at the same time!!!

I would love to join this thread if that's OK?
I've been TTC since May 2010. I had irregular cycles, persevered with trying to work out when the heck to do it for about 6 months and have just completed my 6th cycle of clomid (Serophene, 25mg). I'm ovulating each cycle of clomid according to the blood tests but still no luck. How many cycles of clomid are safe?
The next step for us is to get my husband's sperm tested (I know, we probably should have done this earlier - but we have a 2.5 year old daughter so we figured he was ok....now I'm not sure...but I am doubting everything now anyway ). And I will likely have a laparoscopy/DC. Is there anything else I should be thinking about?
It's all just so consuming and distressing when it doesn't work each month and I do tend to hide from babies and pregnant women for about a week after it doesn't work. I am extremely blessed with my daughter but desperate for another child too. I am the only one out of the 14 women in my mother's group that hasn't had a second pregnancy - I find that awkward - not that they would say anything - they are lovely women.
Guess I just wanted to type this out where others will 'get it'.
Any advice you can offer on 'where to from here' or the 'how long can you take clomid' thing would be much appreciated

Hi girls, Hope everyone is well and enjoying the weekend.
Welcome Birdie . I am only on my second cycle of clomid but the doctor told me we could try it for 6 months and then should have a break for a while. I think you can try with the clomid again after a while or you can move onto other things. You should definitely go and get your husband checked out. My hubbie got checked out early on (and told he was a super stud which made him pretty happy) and it was a big relief. It might just stop a bit of the worrying and stress if you know for sure. Good luck with whatever you decide to do
Funky, I am sorry that you are having a hard time this month. I hope you are surrounded by happiness in this month which is going to be so tough for you
Well I am day 12 today and feeling a lot better this cycle than last. Not nearly as cranky and sad. BUT plenty of hot flushes! Every cycle certainly is different! I am going to have my follicle scan tomorrow so hopefully that turns out ok.

Funky - I hope May gets better for you . It sucks when everything piles up at once!
Well, I did a first response test today, BFN so far . Didn't tell DH as he wanted me to leave testing until it is more likely to show up as positive, but I'm impatient dammit! Sop unless I'm in the 30-something percent that don't have a positive result show up that early, this month is probably not a go-er for me . I'm just dreading being told by my FS that it's time to start IVF, I think he only gave me up to 6 cycles to try before moving on to that so I only have a couple left!

Funky - I know it may not count for much coming from a complete stranger, but i'll be thinking of you this week and praying that those around you are sharing the weight that you're carrying on your shoulders...if I could I would
Elly - hang in there, a lot can happen in hormone land by Friday. I still have my fingers crossed for you. My FS wants to talk IVF when I see him next week and I'm not keen at all. Don't think i'm ready to admit defeat yet. Though last m/c I swore that I was going to march into his office with my credit card and say "right Bucko, get me preggers"!
Birdie - welcome I'm new too
Wicked - I'm right there with you in the $#%&ty mood department. I hate it when you know full well that you're not your usual self and in my case snapping at every little thing that crosses me, but feel utterly helpless to drag yourself out of it!
jruss - good luck with the scan today
ATM - i'm day 14, supposed to be doubled over with O pains....but nothing! Think i've already mentally written off this round as unsuccessful and starting to think of what to do next.

Funky~Mummy-thinking of you this month hun
Ellymoe- Hang in there, you could be testing too early for a bfp!
Has anyone heard from Nat???

Well I had my 12 day scan today and I had 3 15mm follicles on the left and 1 11mm on the right! I am going to have the trigger shot on Wednesday and Friday will be ovulation day!!! I am really hoping we actually have a chance this month as I did not even ovulate last month.
Sunny, thanks for the well wishes. Not every one feels ovulation pains so maybe this month is not a complete write off... for you.
