dh and me have decided to have a alcohol free month  :eek: !  should be ok midweek but the weekends will be difficult. very determined though!  gonna buy some nice juices etc and drink from a wine glass and pretend  ;)  ^idiot^

This part of the month, if feels such a long way off to the end of the 2ww don't you think!

What a brilliant description. i told my dh that I felt like i had been run over and he asked how i could possibly know how that felt. but you get my idea. Last month the nausea was terrible and they have upped my dose from 50mg to 100mg so god help me this time.
Well good luck Kelly and lets hope this month is our month.

and Kerry i would love to be your buddy. i will be taking my  ^scared^ pills b4 bed. 9 less chance of feeling like s*@t) optimistic or what!!!

Take care both of you and lets stay posted.
you never know this one might just be the one.

Love Sally :) :) :)

i know what you mean . i have been waiting for my AF to start properly for a week so the month is dragging already. i couldn't wait for it to arrive so i could get taking the dreaded pills again and now i feel like crap i just want it to be over. ( Us women are fickle things don't you think). But hey double the dose this month so hopefully more luck.
I tried no alcohol last month apart from one very bad night at the Lady boys of Bangkok with a load of mums( Hang over from hell) and i felt healthier if nothing else. But hang in there it took me 5 months of 50mg of clomid to conceive my daughter, so sometimes it can take a while.

Love
Sally :) :) :)

Sally - just waiting to hear back from GP about upping my dose to 100mg for my final month. Fingers crossed.

Also gonna try and have less alcohol this month, its worth a try anyway. Think I will partake in the "juices from a wine glass" theory!  ;)

Me again,

While we are on the subject of dosage for clomid-can I ask how long you were on 50 mg for.This lot was my last ones as I was only given 3 months supply-we are due for a follie scan next monday,do you thing they will automatically up my dose or does it depend on how your follies are doing???

Hi Kelly

I was put upto 100mg after 3 months on 50mg but only because I still wasnt ovulating on the 50 mg dose, thankfully I am now on the 100mg.  Gynae said I can have upto 9 months in total of the 100mg.

Hi everyone

I was on 50mg for 5 months the first time and concieved my daughter. But the second time they put me straight on 100mg and i got caught the first month. But this time i have had 3 months on 50mg and now i am on 100mg. What joy double the side effects!!!!! Hopefully I will manage to get it right this month. i have decided to go down the scientific route and have relented and bought OPK's. So we will wait and see. It is my birthday next week just when I will be ovulating so the no alcohol rule might be out the window. But I tried no booze last month and it still didnt wok so maybe a skinfull will help me relax. ( thats if i dont fall asleep first!!)

Well take care ladies and hers to another day of nausea and hot flushes. My workmate is freezing and i am sweating cobs :) :) :)

Love Sally

Well start  ^idiot^ pills again today/tonight. Spoke to GP last night and she won't up my dose to 100mg. She says that I'm obviously ovulating otherwise I wouldn't be having short cycles (PCOS lengthened my cycle to 35 - 65 days). She also said that with Met as well, there's a bigger risk of releasing lots of eggs (yeah, I wish), which could mean too many embryo's and having to make a horrible decision - her exact words!! So, 6th cycle of  ^bigbad^ :'( ^furios^ ^scared^ ^zombie^ ^snarl^ here we come!!

Had a good cry last night, DH was lovely bless him. Feeling more  ^reiki^ today - Flowerpot, I said I would! Going to have a more healthy month, cut down on alcohol and try and be happy!

Hope your all ok

Good luck Kerry you should be testing around the same time as me. i took my first dose last night. And just as luck would have it my fertile days are slap bang in the middle of my birthday . So hey i might just get the present i really want.

Kelly - I sympathise with your dh. Mine keeps complaining that he is freezing at night but i need the window open. And today it has gone warm again for us up north so he will be moaning again tonight. i never thought i would hope for cool weather. But i am warm at the best of times so will the added bonus of clomid i am roasting.

Take it easy ladies
Love Sally  :) :) :)

Flowerpot - She seemed to think low prog was cos I went to late for my blood test. But as I hadn't had a  ^reiki^ opk, I didn't know where I was up. It was a 23 day cycle which means I ovulated around cd9/10. Went for bloods on CD23!! Not going for bloods this month, I will get some more opk's though. POor you, hope you feel better today hun.

I'm a hot one too! Have to ahve window open, DH hates it! But it is warm up north today, so mayeb he'll be ok!

Does anyone use pre-seed?? Sorry if a bit personal, just wondering whether to try it this month.

Hope everyone is doing ok with the  ^idiot^ pills. i have 2 more days to go then it is wee sticks for me!!lol
I have purchased some opks for this month and i am going to try that way. I tried the basal temperature thing but i am always warm so no joy there. So it is the scientific way for me. i am back at my doc on 18/08 and he was hoping i would be pregnant by then. but no such luck. Hopefully he will advise another route to go down if it doesnt work this time.

Well i am going now as i am starting to ramble.

Take care everyone

Love Sally :) :) :)
