On CD 3

I got my bloodwork done today and I'm going to start my clomid tonight (FP didn't fully start until late so I figure night would be better this round).  I should have my b/w results on Monday.

18 DPO...I think my period is finally coming

AF/FP is finally coming, I think. This is a good thing, I've been waiting to start my next cycle since BFN on Sunday at 15 DPO and my last progesterone on Saturday. Progesterone got me from a 11 day LP to a 17 day LP. My temp finally dropped today and I started spotting this morning. Cycle #7 should officially be here later today or tomorrow, hopefully. I'll be doing the same regimen as last cycle with 50 mg clomid, estrogen, and progesterone.

17 DPO...still waiting for period

I'm so ready to start this next cycle.  It's nice to know that progesterone supplements can extend my LP by 5+ days, but I'm not pregnant (haven't tested since Sunday but that was 15 DPO).  I just want to spot then bleed (weird but true).  The waiting is starting to get to me.  My temp hasn't dropped yet, but it doesn't always drop until after AF/FP starts.  Oh, and we haven't had sex since o day :*(.

Still waiting to start

I hate waiting for FP/AF to start when I know I'm not pregnant.  I took my last progesterone on Saturday night, so hopefully I'll start soon.  I just want to be on a fresh cycle.  My doctor's office said that the regimen would be the same this month, clomid 50 mg, estrogen, and progesterone, since I had good 7DPO b/w.  Hopefully I'll be starting cycle #7 in the next day or two.  I'm also getting FSH tested on CD3.

It's over, just waiting

I tested again at 15 DPO and BFN.  I had decided to take the progesterone one more night and test again.  I'm stopping tonight since the test was negative, so that I can get my period soon.  I'm not sure how long it will take, but hopefully not too long.  Cycle #7 and my last chance at a 2008 baby.

Still in Limbo...BFN at 14 DPO

So I tested again this morning at 14DPO and still BFN.  I'm supposed stop my progesterone tonight and I assume that my period will be here by tomorrow.  I have to call my Dr. on Mon. and figure out this next cycle (#7).

Good News/Bad News at 13 DPO

The good news is I'm at 13 DPO with no spotting. My usual luteal phase is 11 days and my longest is 12 days.  My progesterone at 7DPO was 22 (with 50 mg clomid and progesterone supplements).  The bad news is I tested this morning and got a BFN.  I'm in limbo right now and obsessively checking for spotting.

12 DPO

I didn't test today.  I thought about, and my temp went up after dipping yesterday but I'm not feeling pregnant.  I'm trying not to get my hopes up.  I keep going back and forth about whether I am or not.  I will probably test tomorrow at 13 DPO.  I don't know if I'm "late" since I'm on the progesterone supplements.

11 DPO and going back and forth

I've tested with $tree test (BFN). I only did it since I had some old (expired) OPKs around, they were positive (but again they were expired and that's probably why they were so positive.  I'm going back and forth between hopefulness and thinking that I'm definitely not pregnant. My husband says that there's no reason not to continue with meds, so I guess I will.  FP/AF is due tomorrow (or Friday).  I'm not sure if I'm going to test tomorrow or not (probably will end up testing I guess if I'm not spotting).

Valentine's Day sucked, but I'm 6 DPO

Valentine's Day sucked.  I didn't even get a card from DH, and I was cranky all day.   I did (hopefully) o on CD 21 (which gives us decent odds), if I didn't o until CD 25 then our odds are horrible.  I'm trying not to be overly optimistic.  I have to decide pretty soon what size bridesmaid's dress to order for SIL's wedding in Aug.  I also have to decide whether I should continue with Clomid or try without meds for a few months.  In about a week, I will know if I'm pregnant or not and what decisions need to be made.

No O yet on CD 24

I was hoping that I o on Saturday (CD 21), but after my spike Sunday, my temps went down a little.  I don't want to start progesterone until o is confirmed, and I don't even know if we'll have a chance this cycle, since DH is not wanting sex (we had sex Saturday, but not since then).
