Hi Everyone!  Thank you so much for your well wishes and praises!  Here's to hoping you all get your bfps soon!  I'm posting my signs/symptoms for this month:
cd1:  6/12/09 af here
cd8:  HSG today
cd16:  Positive OPK (BD cd 15, 16, 17)
cd 17:  Ovulated
2 dpo:  Cramping followed by brwn cm
4/5dpo:  Chest rash - looks like a heat rash,  but I wasn't outside
5dpo:  Low left side ovary cramping that radiates to hip bone (sort of like I needed to crack my back kind of feeling) dip in Temp.
6dpo:  Cramping on and off and brown cm after the cramping stops.  Abundant cm in p.m. more than normal.
7dpo:  Low pelvic type pressure/pain by bone and some pinching and bloating in the afternoon.  Brown cm, abundant creamy cm and restless sleep at night.  Had a dream that I got 2 bfps this month.
8dpo:  Dizzyness and nausea starts and stays all week- feeling like I was getting the flu bug.  Tooth ache for no reason, peeing a lot and more abundant cm all day long.
9dpo:  Way less cm than prev. 3 days.  :(  I was cranky and warm all day, hungry and dizzyness continues..  Temp climbs...
11dpo:  More cm today (creamy not sticky like other 3 days)  Brown cm.  Bbs start to hurt more today than prev. days and feel full - also feel pain under my armpits. 
12dpo:  More low pelvic cramping and bbs hurt under my arms again.  Tired.  Temp went up.  Hungry and nauseous.
13dpo:  Hot flashes in the a.m. and my legs are tired.  Dizzy.  nauseous.  Temp went up a little.  Hungry-could eat everything in sight!
14dpo:  Temp dipped.  Woke up with low back ache like I get before af shows.  cramping in p.m. and feels exactly to a T what af cramps feel like.  In p.m. before I shower I notice blue veins are very apparent on bbs.  Thought that was strange and a little voice in my head says, maybe.....  Also not sleeping well.  Keep waking up.  Hungry all day but nothing sounds good.
15dpo:  Temp went back up.  A couple strong cramps when I was getting out of bed in the morning and they went away as soon as they came.  Woke bbs not so sore anymore but veins were still apparent in bbs.  Weird.  Got a call from RE wondering if I got my af yet, and I said no and she told me to test tomorrow or wednesday.  I said, no need I have cramping now so I'll call you when I get af and you can call in my clomid prescription.  Well, I had a sneaky suspicion that if I got a pg test, then that would make af for sure show up so I can start clomid sooner.  Got a FRER from target and took it at 2:00 in the afternoon.  No sooner did I have my underwear up after poas did I glance at the stick and it had 2 bright pink lines .  POSITIVE!!
Called my Re and had urine and blood test done to confirm. 
Progesterone is at 15.65 today (7/14/09)
Quantitative is at 189 which is (according to my RE) right on track for being 4 weeks and 2 days in an un-assisted pregnancy.
Good luck to you girls!  I'm going to continue to chat - these boards make my day go so much better and make me smile when my dh irritates me!!!  Thanks again and keep in touch!

Maybe your HSG did the trick. They say that lots of women get pregnant after it. That wasn't my case Sad but maybe it was yours. Congrats again. Hoping to feel some or all of those symptoms soon myself Smile

Thanks! We think the HSG was what did it - but one can never know for certain. I did do something diff. this month and that was take vit. B6, folic acid and a chewable multivitamin. I also took baby aspirin every other day. ??? if that had anything to do with it, but I had like 3 crazy cycles before this one and I'm shocked it worked. So, now I just need to stay positive and hope it's a sticky bean Smile

Good luck to you this month!

Can I ask blakesmom why you took the baby aspirin? Did your doctor put you on it, or did you take it on your own? Although I haven't yet been to a doctor yet, my concern is that my blood clots really easy. Once I couldn't give blood because my blood just closed it off! I was told I should give my blood for hemophiliacs because of how well my blood clots. I get a cut and I def. don't bleed long. However, I have noticed that the last 6 months at least, my periods have gotten a lot less heavy. This was the first month I actually needed to use a regular tampon (tmi I know) versus a light one, which sad to say I was pretty excited about. Months ago I used to have to use the super. Its just so odd that my periods are getting lighter.. and shorter but I still have the typical 27-29 day cycle. I am wondering if I should try taking the baby aspirin myself, but have read that most women taking this have had a m/c. I have not been through this, I just can't seem to get PG. Could this maybe make a difference?????? I can't find much info on it unfortunately. Sad I think my more normal "typical" cycle and heavier period may have been contributed to the extra vitamins I am taking too. I am taking my prescription pre-natal, as well as a multi B complex vitamin (all b's are at 100mg) and an added B12 vitamin at 1000 mg, 1000 Vitamin, and a fish oil vitamin. My sister threatened me not to stop taking them (as sometimes they were making me sick) as they really help the baby when you finally are PG. In fact, studies have shown a lower chance of ADD and autism in babies where the mother took the fish oil and less health risk through vitamin d. Sorry.. very long winded... Tongue Now i just want to do anything "extra" to GET pg.

I keep reading this thread over and over again every month to see if I have any of the symptoms. I am only 6dpiui now so it's too early for me this time but I am hoping to have some symptoms soon. I know every woman is different but I want sore boobs, cramping and lots of cm all of a sudden!!! Tongue

Well I got my wish. I definitely started having sore bbs and cramping (like AF cramping and also pinching from the inside) from about 12dpiui - today. I got my BFP today at 15dpiui. Big smile
