Hey Greenfairy. Oh can't wait to hear the details of your scan. Well I decided not to do my scan due to the cost. Only doing opk and only just reunited with DH this morning so plenty of bd needed over the past few days. Yeah I have been thinking as to whether I want to keep taking this path if we don't have success this round. At times I just don't think I have what it takes to go through the process only to deal with frustration after frustration. I will see how I feel after this cycle though. I understand your desire to try other methods and lucky you got the information early.
Other then that I have been feeling really good this cycle no spotting at all. The past few days has bought a bit of insomnia and hot flushes and I have a bit of cramping but nothing major. I suppose it helps I am not working but can't keep going like this forever.

Quick update TTC, glad you're feeling so good this cycle and that the time out from work has helped you. Fingers crossed you're going to o this cycle and get a BFP and can begin your pregnancy journey
Scan showed I've still not had any follicle growth good news is though results from DP sa are in and he gets a big tick in all areas of that so that's one less thing to worry about.
I'm having a blood test next wed to check for raising estrogen? But if still nothing happening I'm straight onto fsh injections on thurs. I'm feeling pretty good considering, I'm so pleased we are charging straight into this and things are progressing quite quickly.
Specialist has said though that due to my amh level we may have trouble getting just one follicle growing so I'm already preparing myself and warming DP up to idea of IVF which may work better cause then getting lots of eggs becomes a positive. Just gotta get saving though!! Will see what happens.
Have a great weekend and enjoy having your dh back, best of luck with all the BDing

Hi Greenfairy. I thought I had replied to your post a few days back but noticed it did not appear here. May have had trouble with my phone....
Thanks for the update and great to hear you have some options lined up. I can understand there is no point putting yourself through the disappointments if there is no need.
I heard IVF is expensive and even more so since the government does not contribute financially as much anymore. From what I hear the success rates are very good so you have lots to look forward to. So when will you get the ball rolling on the IVF side of things?
We are not sure what we will do if the clomid doesn't work. We are not in a financial position to pay for IVF here so we may call it a day if nothing happens this year. However we will cross that bridge when we come to it. I have had all negative opk this cycle so far so there is still time. Can't imagine how many more disappointments I could take to be honest.
Good luck with everything and I am hoping you may get lucky and fall pregnant without any help.

How are you going TTC? I've just started my injections yest. Pleased to be moving on from clomid. I just wish I could stop the metformin. I really don't like that, I'm always nauseous and just find it a pain. Plus I don't know how im going to know if it's working or not? I think I'm losing weight on it though but only cause I never feel like eating cause I'm always feeling crap! What's on in Singapore at the moment? Still enjoying your time off work?

Great to hear from you, not so great about the side effects. What is metaformin (I think that is how it is spelt) for? I have heard it mentioned. I hope you get good results soon.
AFM I am still chugging along. Have been very tired the past few days but this is normal for me at this stage in my cycle. I have no signs of being pregnant so am not hopeful. I am on cd21 so I am expecting af next week if the 29day cycles are the new normal for me.
I am not sure when to test but figured I may as well wait until af arrives then I can save the money that I would spend on hpt.
Still early days....
