Hey ladies, how are we all today?     ^hugme^

It's raining and mild here on the South Coast.  My OH is in Glasgow and it's snowing there!!

Not long now, til we can all test, I don't think I will test unless AF is late though my cycle ranges from 23-27 days, so 27 days will be the 2nd Feb I think.

Well, as happy as I am that the Clomid worked this month, I am still expecting my AF, as after 4 years, you get used to it!  I am thinking positive though, just realise that the Clomid may take longer than once cycle to work!  xx

Hi all,

Been raining here all day but very glad it's not snowing as have supermarket trip to do later. Have halved the amount of Cyclogest that I got prescribed as it has made me feel rotten and really upset my stomach. Not a fan.

I am expecting that it hasn't worked for me either heavenly. Think it's self preservation, so that if it doesn't work, then at least I won't feel quite so bad. Still a small part of me hoping that it has though, if that makes any sense at all!  ^idiot^

 ^hugme^ to all

Sorry you're not feeling good.  ^hugme^     And yes, that makes perfect sense, self preservation!!

Hi Vadergarth,

I have sore boobs and cramps too. I wouldn't lose all hope though as sore boobs and mild cramps can be a sign of pregnancy  ^hugme^

Hi Hillhouse, and welcome! :) Hope your appointment goes well. Clomid stimulates your ovaries to produce more follicles each cycle (day one of your period being cycle day 1). Usually when we ovulate, our bodies mature just one follicle which contains an egg (hopefully a good one) so with clomid you get more follicles, more eggs hence a better chance of getting pregnant. There is a lot more to it than that and I am no expert but that's how I look at it  :) Side effects can include hot flushes, difficulty sleeping etc

Do let us know how your appointment goes and what your fs said.

Milliemoos  :)

I have had a few cramps too, but always convince myself for a few days every month that I could actually be pregnant, but it's obviously not.  Let's try and be optimistic.   ^pray^ I am on day 23 now, how about you guys?  My acupuncture lady said that if I ovulated on day 14/15 (as told by clear blue thingy) that I would come on by day 30. is that right?  My cycle has ranged from 28-36 days, so never really sure when am due on.

Have we all had a good Monday?  I am just looking forward to the 2nd half of Corrie!

xxxxx

Well I ov'd 17/18th, my cycle ranges from 23-27....I am looking at the end of Jan.

Oooh yes, good old Becky, glad she stuck it to Steve and Tracy and flew off to Barbados with that lovely man!  ;D   I have been there, she'll love it!  Ok, I know the programme isn't real, but it's Corrie...it's almost real!   ::)


Ha ha yes - good old Becky...xx

Hey ladies!

Vadergarth - it ain't over til AF appears!!

Milliemoos - when are you testing hun?

hillhouse - Welcome to the clomid first timers club.   I haven't had any side effects, so hope I won't get any next cycle!   So you may not get any!  Good luck with the FS.  x


Well, I was extremely tearful last night and really snapped at OH, which is not like me at all!    Think things probably were getting on top of me yesterday, he had been away for 24 hours, and it's not long til AF is due.  A bit nervous!

Oooh, my new Iphone has just arrived, I am off for a play!!    ;D

Hi Ladies,

Me too.  I've had sore boobs building up in the last couple of days which is fairly normal for me a week or so before AF  - as I have always understood it, once you ovulate, your body starts preparing for pregnancy, hence why you sometimes get symptoms such as sore boobs (I sometimes also get nausea, metallic taste in my mouth, head aches  ^idiot^), and then these symptoms drop off just before AF arrives if the egg hasn't implanted.  This usually happens to me one or two days prior to AF so I know when that happens it ain't going no where that month.

I've also had a lot of cramping this cycle (more than last) but I think this is meant to be a side effect of Clomid.  So, I think for now sore boobs and cramping certainly isn't a bad sign...

Very frustrating that our bodies seem set to try us and mislead us.  I seem to spend my life trying to interpret symptoms or the absence of symptoms and dreaming about the possibility of having BFP and then trying to convince myself that it clearly isn't going to happen this month to make the fall less painful when AF arrives.

I watched the great sperm face on 4oD at the weekend - pretty amazing and on the one hand it makes me realise what a difficult journey those  ^sperm^have to make which makes me feel a bit better about it all taking so long, and then I get depressed and think oh god it's never going to happen, it can't possibly happen, when they hAve such a damn awful journey with my body conspiring against them every step of the way. 

...... it only takes one little  ^HappySperm^ to get through though, so  ^pray^ for us all.
