I've started a new thread as we ran out of space!! Hope everyone find this...

Update from me: I'm on clomid cycle 2, 50ng day 2-6. Currently day 18. Last month my day 21 bloods were 39.1 which was up from 21 without clomid....

Feeling quite positive, but think that is only as I am mid cycle!!

Hi ladies. Hope your ok Sammy, you'll be ok hun. You will get your bfp soon hun. Please keep us posted. (hugs). X. Baby dust for all!. X.

Sammy13x Thu 22-Aug-13 20:48:43

Hi ladies just an update from me. Went to gynae today and has been told my only option is ivf. Were goin to give it a try but I dont know how I feel about doing the egg share scheme as im not sure if it will reduce my chances. I feel ever so low today and have done nothing but cry. Not sure what to do x

Don't worry about the post hun. I was told my tubes were fine, then they said my left 1 was blocked & now they say it isn't. I had an ectopic pregnancy just over 3 years ago. The pregnancy wasn't in the tube but near to my left tube, they say I may have some scarring. So I'm not sure what to think?. I pray we get our bfp's soon smile. I always seem to know 6 days before my af, that I feel it's on way, but we do hear off alot of women when they get thier bfp, they had the same symptoms as af symptoms smile. I''m praying for us. All & sending lots of baby dust smile. X

Sammy13x Wed 21-Aug-13 20:44:02

My head is all over the place with it all.the thing is I always know im coming on a couple of days after ovulation so I guess il always think negative as I dont know if ill still get the same feelings if I was pregnant. I just feel like they gave me the pills to keep me quiet a bit. I still believe there is something wrong that they havent picked up on so I might even ask of they will do another laparoscopy. Ive been told so many different things about my bits and pieces like one minute ive got endometriosis then I havent. Then I was told they had removed a cyst and then told it was drained. And THEN when I had my 2nd lap they said I had 2 cysts and that 1 was removed and the other only drained because of where it was. Sorry for the long post im just frustrated and dont know what to believe x

mazzie40 Wed 21-Aug-13 18:39:50

Mine is also unexplained. Had lots of tests & the fc say, just keep trying. I was thinking of asking about iui. I know what you mean about trying so long. Even tho I haven't had a bfp yet, I find it does get easier when I see bfn, but I'm not one for giving up lol. I'm due my af or bfp on the 27th if it's a 30 day cycle, my cycles never over 32 days, so could be the 29th smile. I keep saying to myself, should I not get a bfp this month, do I take a break from Clomid for 1 month, I dunno lol. X

Sammy13x Wed 21-Aug-13 18:07:06

We been trying for 4 years now.... surgery and investigations inbetween with no joy. Im unexplained infertility. Im on my 3rd round of clomid but goin to c gynae tomorrow as I want to ask about iui and why im not bein monitored. R u only on clomid and do u get monitored? Iv only had 1 blood test since we started. Its all horrible cuz I feel it will never happen and that if it was goin to then it would happen before now x

mazzie40 Wed 21-Aug-13 16:43:55

I'm on round 4 now, bit only took 3 days of Clomid. Me mm hubby have been ttc for nearly 3 years on n off, but have been trying more in the last 5 or 6 months smile. How long have you been ttc?. X

Sammy13x Wed 21-Aug-13 13:20:23

Was meant to say what cycle r u on now lol x

Sammy13x Wed 21-Aug-13 13:19:05

Mazzie I know what u mean with trying not to test and things lol.... we just cant help it. Im not testing this month and im sticking to it. Clomid has altered my cycle length aswel so im not 28 days no more.... last month I was 3 days early. Its all confusing. What r u on now? X

mazzie40 Tue 20-Aug-13 12:52:46

Hi ladies. Hope everyone's ok smile. Sammy.... Your only on CD22, & your not out till af arrives. I'm on cd23. I'm around 9dpo. The only difference this month to any other month is that my boobs are abit sore, they arn't normally sore at this time in my cycle, & for the last 3 days I've been feeling sick in the evenings, but as we know, the Clomid can do that, so we'll just wait n see smile. I was thinking of doing a frer in a few days but then I change my mind lol. I keep saying to myself. I do it every month & all that money just to get a bfn, no I'll just wait lol. X

Sammy13x Tue 20-Aug-13 10:37:41

Hows everyone doing? Im on cd22 and defo know af is coming the same as every month with the achy boobs, spots and cramps. Got gynae on thursday so ill know my options then regarding ivf. Hope everyone is well x

Sammy13x Wed 14-Aug-13 14:19:08

Well my employer apparently does have the right according to my gp as I have been very stroppy at work and sometimes go dizzy and therefore I cant do my job of looking after people properly. They have signed me off for 2weeks and im back at gynae in the meantime. Talk about kicking people when theyre down! Oh well these things r sent to try us x

mazzie40 Wed 14-Aug-13 09:53:06

Hi Sammy. I agree with Sarah. What on earth is your employer thinking. All the best hun, hope you get your bfp soon smile. Babydust to all smile. X

Sarahb8990 Wed 14-Aug-13 08:11:40

Sammy your employer is talking aload of crap about it being a danger to others! If I was you I'd talk to HR or got to citizens advice as they can't stop you from working just because you are ovulating. That would be like telling all other women not to come in when they are ovulating.
Hope you get it sorted out and a bfp soon

Sammy13x Tue 13-Aug-13 12:22:56

Hi ladies hope everyone is ok. Im finding things difficult this month and starting to feel negative about clomid working for me. I have also been told by employer that I cant work whilst im taking the clomid as I am a danger to others! So im now stressed with having no income whislt im ovulating . It would be nice to have some positives this month! I go back to gynae on the 22nd so this could be my last cycle before looking into ivf. Baby dust to all x

mazzie40 Mon 12-Aug-13 22:07:55

Thank you Flower. Praying all is ok with your biopsy results hun. X

Floweroct Sun 11-Aug-13 16:44:28

Hi I'm cd13 still waiting for +ve opk but haven't taken clomid this month as I need to wait for my biopsy results. Good news though is dh sa came back normal so that's one less thing to worry about. Hopefully my biopsy results will come through shortly so I can start round 5 next month! Good luck for 2ww mazzie smile

mazzie40 Sun 11-Aug-13 09:37:58

Hi ladies. How'z everyone?. It's quiet here.... I'm on CD14. I've had + opk's from cd12 and also this morning smile. This is my 4th round of Clomid and second round of 100mg but as I said I only took 3 days. I forgot to take the others as I was fasting for Ramadan and was taking the pills at 3am and didn't manage to wake up lol. I'm praying we all have the best news this cycle smile. Sending lots of baby dust our way smile. X

Thank you Feather, have a lovely time away smile. X. Congrats Bouncing, all the best for you hun smile. I'm on cd9. I took 100mg on CD 3, 4 and 5 and then I forgot to take it on cd6, so only took 3 days. I'm abit gutted but believe everything happens for a reason, it wa meant to be, just gotta wait n see. I really need to get to town today n get some opk's. Praying for us all ladies. Lots of baby dust!!. Xx.

Congratulations Bouncing! That's brill news! Naww.

I needed to go AWOL for a bit as last week rocked me after the whole 'Clomid round 5 no follicles' thing. I'm going away for three weeks in a few days time and I'm looking forward to not obsessing over ttc. I'm exhausted, drained, sad and in need of a break from the pills and my own head. When I stared clomid in Feb, I just assumed it would work and that I'd be pregnant by now. It's taken me a while to come round to the idea that my path probably won't be that simple. So, I'm having August off clomid and then two more months of it at 150mg. Then, I'll look into other options such as iui or the dreaded (in my head, anyway) IVF.

I do think that this struggle will make us all better parents, you know? I'd imagine when you've wanted something so much for so long, you appreciate it much more than if it were handed to you straight away. Doesn't make it easier but it's a thought.

Flower, hope your biopsy comes up all clear. Mazzie and Pip - thanks for you kind words of support. And wishing you both, and everyone else on here all the best and swift bfps, whichever way we all have to get them. flowers
