Gina I am glad you were able to see your husband and the most important time. Baby dust to you. I hope this is your month and you will not have to worry about taking clomid again.
Lauren do you have any friends that had a good ob. I hope you find someone wonderful. Did you have a man or a woman. Around here there are only men so not a lot of options.
Charmed I hope AF is over for you and on to better things. That sound very unpleasant to say the least.
Zebra I hope work slows down. I had a typical monday. I had appointments through lunch and finally when I looked at the clock it was 4:30 and I still had several hours of work to do. I guess the days fly by for me atleast.

Still no AF, may be TMI but my nipples are extemely sensitive which has last month too, but never before so may she is around the corner.

Melissa, I asked a pregnant friend of mine who she uses, just as a "conversation," you know, like I'm curious who she's going to. Nobody knows, so I'm trying not to ask anyone so that they start asking me questions. I prefer women (that's sounds really wierd), and there's a practice here that is all women, so I'm thinking of trying them. Either that or I can call and talk to my doctor personally. We don't have a close relationship like some would, but it may be worth a shot.

Anyhow, I completely blew up at dh last night. I was so stimulated and upset that my doc was "my doc" anymore that I just got more and more upset. So, it came to bedtime and he wanted to be sweet and lovey-dovey. I just couldn't take it, and it really upset him. I was NOT like this with DD. I was teary-eyed all day b/c of the way I treated him, and I STILL feel awful. Sad Sigh...Sorry, I needed to vent a little.

Hope everyone is doing well...babydust to all!!

Tongue Good Morning Everyone,

Hope things are going well for you all? M_wishing sounds like AF is coming I always get sore nipples too. And never TMI around here I think we all have same symptoms and wonder sometimes. Lauren how is it going finding a new OB? Just remember the positive side to all that is in the end you will have a beautiful baby in your arms no matter who delivers you!!
Charmed so sorry you are having a difficult AF! I don't have that going on, but boy let me say the O pain was something I will not forget anytime soon from the clomid. Shock Still having some mild cramping now, but I guess that is normal.

Zebra don't forget to take time for yourself in a busy schedule....always fun to get a pedicure LOL! With three kids, work, house, etc findind time for me is hard too and I love those moments when I can just sit and not think.

I really hate this waiting time. I am already a fanatic about testing, and it is the slowest time of the whole month for me!! I think I just need a crystal ball.....HA! Anyways back to work for me now. Take care ladies and talk to you all soon.

Gina

Hey Gina, thanks for asking. I'm going to research a bit tonight and hopefully I can call the one I decide on tomorrow and see when they can get me in. I've been so emotional it's unbelievable. I wasn't like that with DD, but hey, every pregnancy is different.

Sorry about the o pain. It's def not comfortable, but at least you know you o'd (right?).

FX everyone- babydust to all of you!!

Hi everyone. I'm so sorry it has been so long since I have visited or wrote. Been busy with work and my son has been sick. It's been a emotional roller coaster around here. My SIL just gave birth to her 3rd child (a son) on Tues night. Everyone is good and healthy but just brought me down pretty good. Then I found out my good friend is pregnant, I was very happy for her but again the news just seems to make you down. A couple days after she finds out her Dad passes away. I lost my Dad almost 14 years ago so she's leaning on me to help her through. It just seems like every where I go I look and see pregnant people. I still haven't gotten AF. Last MP was Jan 22 (give or take a day or two) I can't seem to remember right off hand. I have taken so many tests cause I can't seem to understand why I am not getting it when I used to be so regular. I have this huge fear that since I just turned 35, that I am no longer able to have kids. DH isn't in the same boat as me. He would be happy with just our son. I work in the lab at a hospital and just about every single day I have to go up and draw on newborns and it just makes things worse. I think I'm just depressed and have no one to talk to. I talked with my doc and she says there is nothing to worry about and that they don't worry about anything untill after you have missed 3 full menstral cycles and being that I have a child already she believes that there isn't any problem. I don't know where to start in trying more than just having sex when we can. What can I do? Sorry for my "just rambling" but I just needed to get this off my chest and just typed as I felt. Thanks everyone

Lauren--I hope you find an amazing ob that you are comfortable with. If men had to deal with have the stuff we had in our bodies they would be more appreciative that we don't bite their heads off all the time Big smile
Gina I hope that you find something to take your mind off the tww.
Woodcricket-- that is what we are hear for. We all need to vent to people that are in the same boat. I don't remember if I said this on here or not so sorry if it is a repeat. But my sister found out she was expecting #4. She was not happy at all she is now due in may and is still not over joyed becasue she thought they were done. She did find out that we are ttc and said I wish it was you but it is still hard to watch her and not have her be excited. Plus my brother has 4 kids, and my sister other sister has 1 kid so when we all get together it sometimes challenging for me.

AFM-- So I looked at my chart this morning. I was tired of seeing what cd I was on but if I remember right I think it is 46. but for the last 7 days the temps have been 97.7 or higher and today was 98.1 If I did happen to o late, even if the ob/gyn nurse said i wouldn't I don't know if we bd on the right day. we bd on the first day it spiked out of randomness. Other than that, nipples still really sensitive. I am suppose to call the nurse back if no AF by friday so I guess I will wait and see what happens.

By the way did anyone watch the bachelor. I must admit we do. And if you heard them say that when Brad lost his temper they called it poking the bear. I used that line today when I had a fight with my dh and I can say it did make us both laugh. So just a thought because I know how tense things can get somedays.

Good morning everyone,

Melissa I am wondering if you could tell me how your first cycle of clomid went? On sunday (27th) I had horrible O pains and tested bright positive on kit. So I assume that day or the next I O'd. I have been having bad cramping for the last 4 days finally went away late last night, but I am so grouchy and moody too! Did you go through any of that with your clomid? And did the second month get any easier? What doses have/or you been taking?

Thanks so much,

Gina

Well, I for one am glad this week is over. Another week of subbing for teachers. No wonder I have a hard time getting pregnant - I'm too tired at night when I get home to do anything but sleep. Well, that's not always the case. Although, I've had to take naps in the evenings the few days because I just can't stay awake (might have helped if I'd gone to bed on time).

Sorry to see that some of you are have a rough time with clomid. It's been a few years since I took it, but I don't remember having the issues that you guys talk about. Granted, I don't think they really induced ovulation either, so that might explain it. The only thing I remember from it is that it seemed to help "put me in the mood", so to speak. DH LOVED that and wished I could take it more for that reason alone! Tongue Hopefully, the meds will work quickly so you don't have to go through it any more.

Not much to tell on my end, just waiting. Again, not sure about ov this time - didn't test as I think it happened almost immediately after AF went away, which makes sense since my last cycle was only 23 days. That was a week ago, so I'm just waiting. In the meantime, I'm trying to get rid of the PCOS acne - it drives me nuts. It's not really all that bad, it just drives me nuts that at 32, I feel like I have the face of a 14 year old. And it doesn't help that the kids at work stare at them - they've not asked me about it (thank goodness), but I do catch them looking at it and trying to figure out what the spots are! Sad I don't know if any of you have any ideas of how to treat, but if so I'd appreciate reading about them. I've tried numerous OTC cleansers, but they don't do much (some seem to make it worse). Not sure if there is much I can do without a dr since it is caused by hormones. But, i can always hope.

Well, before I start talking gibberish (which I do when I get tired) I need to get off of here and go to bed. Have a great weekend and good luck to all.

zebra, your comment about subbing was funny- in fact, I'm so excited right now that I'm finally on SPRING BRRRREEEEAAAAKKKKK!!!!! Big smile I teach 1st graders, so I know EXACTLY what you mean!

I'm sorry to hear about the trouble the clomid is causing you guys, too. I never got a pos. opk, but I know I o'd b/c of the pain. It was no fun, but at least I know I o'd!! My first month was "side effect month," and the 2nd month I hardly had any side effects but had bad o pain.

AFM, I have a dr's appt on the 28th. I'm a little peeved at having to wait that long...I'll be 9 weeks by then!! Stare Oh well, on the bright side, I'll have an u/s done, and by then it will be beginning to look like a baby and not a tadpole (which is what it would've looked like if I had gone this week as I had planned)! Tongue

Hey ladies,
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It is my weekend on call and I have been very busy these last two nights and I think i might have the touch of a respiratory virus. my temps have been 99.1-99.5. I don't know if it was the emergency last night or whatever I have but I feel like I got ran over by a bus and then it backed up and hit me again. UGH!! The was definetly moody both months with clomid. Never a true positive with opk's. First month felt a little pain. Second month a lot of pain on my lower left quadrant, on and off for about 48 hours. 1st month had an increase with bbt, 2nd month no increase with until cd38 or something like that. I had horrible hot flashes this month with clomid though, mostly night sweats and during surgeries. I have only been on 50mg which is where they will keep me if I ever start another cycle and do an u/s as well cd14, 15, or 16. Called the office because they said to if in two weeks af didn't show. The nurse will go over my chart with the dr on monday and then they will prescribe me something to get the ball rolling. I asked if there would be a possibility that I could have o'd really late and the bbt increase now that is going on 10 days could be anything. They said becasue i had o pains cd14,15 that it was not likely. So I guess we will see what monday brings. All in all Gina, I did experience those symptoms along with sensitive nipples, which now are not longer sensitive and still no AF.
Lauren I hope you found a great doctor. How have you been feeling.
Zebra I agree i like the weekend but just wish I wasn't oncall. My dh and myself both seem to be extremely tired at night. I know that dh will only get busier from now until June so this could be interesting. My sister battles acne as well, and she was prescribed this brown liquid stuff to put on her face at night that helps. Sorry I don't know the name. I hope that you can find something and can be a strong confident woman no matter what. Cool
Anyway hope you are all doing well. Gina I hope this month is your month and clomid did the trick Wink
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
