TTC and today is day 23. This is my 1st time on Clomid and 1st round. I've had my progesterone tested on day 21 (179), day 22 (187) & day 23 (118) and scared!
It's too early to take a pregnancy test and 6 days for my period. The wait is killing me! Has anyone else experience such a significant drop in progesterone? Are you pregnant? And still pregnant? Please share your story. I need some inspiration and hope. I know I can wait to see but as I've said before.....the wait will kill me!

So, I have survived the past few days! AF is 3 days late. Dr's did a pregnancy test - neg. My cervical position is high and soft for the past 3 days, very light spotting, no swollen breasts, and no pregnancy symptoms. Very worried, Dr. told me to wait but everything on the internet states that clomid delays your period. Thoughts???

Hi Sunshine! I just started round 2 of clomid. AF after the first round was actually 1 day early, but it seems like i have read about people having longer cycles while on it. Were your cycles regular before?

Hi babyhope,

Well, I wish you all the babybust for your 2nd round.....wish I was at least there. My period was always regular and on time, that why I going out of my mind. Since my BFN, I am worried and hoping that my Dr. don't have to induce AF. Today is CD32 and nothing, no cramps, no spotting, no frequent urination, no tireness, no mood swings nothing!

Well AF is here on CD33! Cramping and a mild backache. So I am not pregnant for sure...all my hopes are dashed. I am, however concerned for this new cycle, as my Dr. wants me to go on 100mg for my 2nd round of clomid. Any thoughts or suggestions on how best to approach?? Here’s my plan:

1. Clomid 100mg days 5-9
2. Chart my temp.
3. Chart my cervical position
4. Check my progesterone days 21 & 23
5. Drink Robitussin days 10 to 16
6. Acupuncture, sleep and vitamins
7. Eat, breathe, visualize and sleep babies!
8. Am I missing anything??

So I am on my CD 14 today but I have to say that all of my monitoring seems mute as I have not detected any signs of ovulation. I am thinking that 100mg of clomid may not be the correct dosage for me. Anyone else? Or my cycle has now changed to 31 days. Trying really hard not to focus all my energy on this process and relax. Crazy

is your doctor having you come in for day 13 ultra sound to see what your ovaries are doing? they can tell if you are responding to the clomid or not.

Great question, and the answer is no. My OB/GYN requested a progesterone test on CD#23 which will be Monday to see if ovulation occurs. But I do believe that she should have schedule an ultrasound, a follicle scan I think, to see if I am even producing eggs but it did not happen. Fingers crossed that my timing is better than last month.
