Well girls. Here is the new thread. Good luck to everyone this month! I hope this is it!!!!

Deby thanks for creating the new thread. Your temp went back up, that sounds good. Have you had any cramping?

 

Deby - January 3

Hey Angie. Yes I have had craming off and on. More today that normal. My bbs are REALLY getting sore now..but I dont know if this is all side affects from the clomid or what. I hope its a good sign! I have such high hopes that I went and bought a pregnancy test today. I am saving it to hopefully be able to take on Sunday!!!!!

Found you guys - Deby that sounds great. Well unfortunately AF hasn't come full b__wn but I see a brownish tinted CM (TMI - sorry) anyways... I've written myself off. My doctor is on vacation but did give me another perscription (100 mg this time) of the clomid. And this is my last cycle before she refers me to a specialist. She said 3 months is the max she'll put someone on it. The good news is that if my AF comes this is going to be the first regular cycle 29-30 days since the M/C in Sept. so I'm happy my cycles have returned. The bad news is that if I count 14 days back from a 29 day cycle it means I would have ovulated on Dec 20th - and we didn't bd that day. On a sparate note... what are you guys doing naturally to help your cm quality. I keep hearing about green tea or primrose oil as well as baby asprin - but not sure of the days to take it?

DJ are you temping? Are you sure its even AF??? If so...hopefully the 100mg of Clomid will work better for you. I am keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!! DJ did you notice any increased cramping or Breast Tenderness around af time while taking Clomid?

 

DJ - January 4

Not at all but I never get tender b___st. Clomid signs vary so much. I had more cramping around ov time. I just go the blood results from doctors office and it was less than 2. Is your doctor doing HCG blood tests while you're on clomid on day 28. Mine does so it's officially a BFN even though the brown cm has stopped. I want to temp this cycle.. .actually pull out all the stops before going to the fertility specialist. I'm nervous that hte 100 mg is going to have some bad side effects. Anyone do anything naturally to help with ovulation and cm?

 

DJ - January 4

Deby, my issue with temping is that I always forget right after I get out of the bed :O

 

Deby - January 4

Hey DJ..sorry to hear about the BFN. No he has not order any monitoring yet. I only have 1 refill on my clomid, so I think if it doesnt happen next month, he will monitor me. I heard every doc is different! Who knows. If I do get af this weekend (which I pray I dont), I will call them next week to ask. As far as the cm question goes, I just took some Robitussin and used preseed one night. So we'll see if it worked!

 

DJ - January 4

What's the robitusen and the preseed for and when do you take it

 

Meg - January 4

OK girls, I have posted a couple of times before, but mostly just read...you guys are great...and I have a question...I asked it as it's own thread, but specifically wanted your opinions...I'm a learning charter...and haven't been doing temps...the Friday before Christmas I started to bleed...dark dark red/brown...put on a liner thinking AF was here...filled one liner each day for three days with dark but not heavy red....then AF came full b__wn Monday...are those first three days charted as "spotting" or "light" on FF...it totally changes my o day, and since I'm not temping, I don't have any other way to predict...my cm is pretty telling too...but still, any charters with expertise would be appreciated!!! thanks!

DJ- Preseed is the only lubricant that I know of that's safe for sperm, and if you have a problem with CM due to Clomid drying you out or making your CM hostile, it just helps the swimmers get where they need to be. Robitussin is used to thin the mucus in your body (only the robitussin that only contains Guffaissen (sp?) as the active ingredient). It has like 100 mg in one teaspoon...or something like that, so you would take it several times a day. I used Mucinex expectorant, with only Guff. in it, and it has 600 mg in each pill, so you only have to take it once a day. I took it with my Clomid at the same time everyday. The Guff. works to thin the mucus in your whole body...including your CM. So, if yours gets thick and hostile with the Clomid, the Guff. helps to thin it out. Hope that helps.

 

DJ - January 4

Thanks Julie. I guess you purchase the robitussen from a pharmacy but where do you get Mucinex from? Meg, I'm a begginer charter Deby is experienced so hopefully she can answer you on the right days. There is a forum I see called Charters Unite they may be able to help you though

 

Deby - January 5

Hey Girls. DJ..JUlie pretty much sumed up the reason to use Preseed and Robitussin. It just helps the swimmers. Mucinex you can get from a pharmacy as well. It would be in the cold section. It comes in a blue and white bottle. Meg - When charting..they say to not count your spotting as full b__wn af. Your sounds tricky since it was light but not full b__wn. Temping is the best way to go. Seriously..if you arent temping, then they dont really consider you charting. I would suggest it. It really helped me. It will take some getting use to having to take your temp every morning..but its the only way I know for sure if I have ovulated!

So i had some af like cramping last night. Af is probably on her way. My bbs are sooo sore though. I bet its just side affects from the Clomid with my luck!

 

DJ - January 5

Deby my best friend is due in Feb and when she found out her b___bs were really sore and she was getting cramps like af was coming. I don't think that's a side effect of clomid (sore bbs) I think headaches, acne, hot flashes are the more typical side effects. Your af could be coming but you never know .... you had the hsg, the clomid, robitusen and you bd on the right days - come on this is perfect

 

Deby - January 6

DJ I hope your right..but I just dont feel lucky. I guess time will tell. As I sat down this morning to pee (tmi) I thought I should pull out the HPT, but I couldnt bring myself to do it. If my temps are still high on Sunday..I will take one and see what happens. How are you feeling? Where is everyone?

 

AngieAngela - January 6

Good Morning Ladies, Deby you symptoms sound so promising, any other symptoms? I sure hope you get your bfp. I have been exercising and eating right this cycle, so maybe that will make a difference this month. I'm 7 dpo and I have been experiencing cramping and heartburn badly. I'm trying to stay positive, yet, I always think the worst. I told my DH it would probably happen this month, because we decided after this month to wait three months. We are planning to build/buy a house and we wanted to worry about one expense at a time, but we are not going to prevent either. DJ - How are you doing? Me2 – what’s new, when’s your next doc. Appt?
