Thank you Mrs Pemberley and Blue_Wren. I think it was in the older Clomid Post. I must have written it right before it was closed. An introduction will be great thanks. I can copy over my comment?

Mrs P - I would have cried too. Find the problem and fix it!

I can't see it on the old thread either arayofsunshine - feel free to re-post! How's this month going for you?

Hi megwyn! How are you doing? Thanks for the sympathy, my urge to chuck a massive adult tantrum is really very strong!

Absolutely nothing wrong with an occasional adult tantrum!

Hope the FS appt goes well today Mrs P!

My period was a week late and I still had weird symptoms (main one was mega sore boobs) so I went to the dr for a test (had a BFN at home but a friend didn't get a BFP on home tests and turned out to be 6 weeks pregnant, so I thought *maybe* it had happened to me too?). Anyway, it was negative, then I got my period on the weekend. My one month off Clomid and my body immediately reverts to the old long/irregular cycles. Back on the meds now!

Onwards and upwards ... really hoping March is the month for us all! (Can you imagine if it happened for us all at once?!!)

Sorry your cycle was so painfully drawn out blue_wren. FX this month is the month!

FS appointment was a mixed bag this morning. The laparoscopy results were all clear as I was told last week, and the endometrial biopsy was normal (and I apparently ovulated all on my own!). DH's SA was negative for antibodies, but the normal sperm count was much lower than the previous - and below the reference range. So the FS has recommended IVF with ICSI.

We'll just wait for AF in the next couple of days, and then we'll get started.

So I guess I'll head over to the IVF forum now but I'm going to keep lurking because I'd dearly love to see you all get your BFPs very very soon. Wishing you all so much baby dust xx

This 2ww is flying, I didn't end up doing day 21 progesterone because I am pretty sure I ovulated and the FS forgot to give me the blood test referral. I actually need to make an appointment with her this week to discuss next steps if this cycle doesn't work, will be testing Saturday morning which will be 12dpo as I have a wedding and I want to either not drink or drown my sorrows. Haven't been symptom spotting because I have had no symptoms I feel like it didn't work but we just have to wait.
How did your appointment with the FS go?

Quick question Mrs P, how much did your gonal f meds cost? Saw the FS today and if this cycle fails we are onto injections and iui and I'm trying to get my head around costs

#35 Mrs Pemberley

Posted 07 March 2017 - 07:17 PM

Hey jb! FX you won't need any injections! The gonal f is fairly cheap, I think it was $38 for 3 pens, and I found I was using 1 and a bit pens per cycle. The pregnyl for trigger and luteal support was a little more expensive but still under $70.

I know with my clinic though if you are doing IUI, the meds are included in your cycle fee after a co-payment of $38. I'm still trying to get my head around the costs for IVF, but I've found the Patient Liaison ladies to be wonderful for answering all my cost related questions. Have you got something like that at your clinic?

So how does this work when you're not regular and you just have to wait for day one?  Day 40 and counting.

It SUCKS and you just have to wait. At least that's what they made me do anyway. (Sorry to be the bearer of crappy news :( )

Wow, that's excellent news! Your stay with us was very short and sweet. I'm very happy to hear that it does work - our track record wasn't the best in this group, but hopefully this will be the start of a rush of BFPs! Congrats :)

Hi, I graduated from here a while back.   I had the same issue and was prescribed provera to bring my period on.   I would only have 1 or 2 periods a year so it was impractical to wait for CD1.   Maybe check with your FS to see if this is an option for you?

It started today. I know I have to wait I was just venting. If it had gone for much longer I would have asked what I could do.

So I'm finally completely on this journey.

Congrats to you with your BFP

#41 Mrs Pemberley

Posted 14 March 2017 - 07:21 PM

Congratulations arayofsunshine! About time there was a BFP here! Wishing you a boring 8 months :-)

Hi ladies, sorry I have been so quiet. Just wanted to let you know that I am 16w with a singleton. We had a scare at the 12w scan, but everything seems to be going OK so far. I'm still really anxious and not enjoying this pregnancy at all... but it might just work this time.

Wishing you all the best. Clomid really is an awesome drug.

Ok.  I've taken two letrozole tablets. This sucks. I mean I'm happy I'm being proactive and doing something finally but man the headaches and hot flushes.  It'll be worth it in the end right?  (I'm just woe is me venting,  I'm actually happy I'm doing it)

#45 Mrs Pemberley

Posted 15 March 2017 - 08:43 AM

And another one! Congratulations AdelTwins!

The hot flushes are shocking aren't they megwyn? It will totally be worth it in the end, just don't wear too many layers in the meantime!

Glad it sorted itself out before you needed more intervention megwyn. Here's to the start of regular cycles! (Or hopefully none because it works first time :) )

And congrats Adeltwins - that is wonderful news too! Fingers crossed it's all smooth sailing from here - I'm sure it will be :)

Can anyone tell me how they know they ovulated or not?  I'm unsupervised this round so only one blood test on day 21. I've had some pain in one side today and yesterday which I never get. I'm not trying to read anything into it. Temping doesn't work for me as I'm on a cpap machine and it affects my temp.

#49 blue_wren

Posted 29 March 2017 - 10:53 AM

I'm not much help, I'm sorry Megwyn, I never know. I have had stronger symptoms since starting on the Letrozole though - pain around the left ovary on the day I *think* I'm ovulating, and bloating? But of course those are also the days I'm super sensitive and think everything is a sign so maybe not.

I did a test today, I really should have waited til the weekend as AF is due on Monday, but couldn't resist. BFN of course. I'll try to wait til at least Friday for the next one!

How is everyone else going?

#50 megwyn

Posted 29 March 2017 - 09:52 PM

That's ok. I never know either.  Sorry about your bfn. I hope when you do it again it's more what you want
