I am left feeling very confused today (icing on the cake given the cranky irritable clomid induced lunatic I have turned into!!!)
So took clomid cd2-6. I have been charting to assist detection of o. I had positive opts Wednesday and Thursday. This was in line with bad o pain, breakout, irritability, cm, cervix hos etc. Dh and I covered all bases. Had negative (fading progressively) opk's fri and sat, again indicating ovulation on friday when coupled to my body signals. I had a temp spike on sat (again indicating that i was right with my feelings that o was Friday- wow! I thoughts! This might actually mean I am ovulating!!!! Yay!!!!). BUT Today I have had a massive Temp dive coupled to a very positive opk?
I had thought it might be a fallback rise, but now coupled with todays positive opk, my cervix is still hso, im naseous and bloated and feeling very very "bruised" inside and dont get me started on how cranky i am!!! my poor dh and Dd's!!!! I'm left feeling really confused????
Is this the real ovulation? Or is this an indication that clomid has not worked? Or is it just screwing with my sanity? I have bd today after putting on a DVD for the girls (super parenting!!! lol) but if this is the real surge- I assume I have to continue with the bding for a couple of days?
Any sane (aka non clomid effected) advise would be most most most appreciated!!!!! Lol
Thanks ladies x x

After much asking, I convinced the ob that I wanted day 21 bloods. He then posted me a day 21 and day 24 test in the mail. I am due for day 21 on Thursday. But no, no ultrasound.

The only way to know if you are about to come up to/have a surge is via BT's. JUST having a CD21 BT, will indicate if you have O'd - it won't tell you when you O'd.
Tell your Dr you want tracking done from at least CD7 so you can time the bd'ing correctly.

It is impossible to know for sure really unless you do have blood tests or scans. Usually fertility specialists are the best people to help monitor any fertility treatment including clomid and understandably not all ob/gyn's will have up to date knowledge on management of fertility treatment cycles. All you can do is make sure you are covering your bases and presuming that either could be the real ovulation (I am presuming you are not having IUI?) and then consider for future cycles if you would like to see a specialist that is able to increase your chances of success and keep in mind that monitoring can also be important to reduce risks and it can sometimes be a diagnostic tool as well and may identify if your body is producing healthy good sized follicles and that your body is releasing the appropriate hormones to cause ovulation.
