Need a clomid buddy to help me through the 2ww

Took clomid CD5-9 stressing  5th August and I think I o'd on CD17 which puts me at 5dpo but am going nuts waiting for two weeks to pass. Anyone who took clomid this cycle and we go down this road together?

How u getting on. I'm on the 2ww too. I can test on Friday. I'm trying to keep busy it's always on my mind

It's good to know. I can only test next week on Tuesday. I am running out of my mind. I hope you get a BFP on Friday. What are your symptoms so far?

I was having a lot of cramps on my left side and lower stomach and also tired and abit grumpy, and an annoying headache hanging around but I know they are normal side effects from clomid and ovulation. Otherwise im feeling fine. I had my blood test last Friday to see see if I ovulated so even if I'm not pregnant this time, it will be good to know if I ovulated then next time I can keep track of it. Iv been trying to keep my mind off it with working plus I have 2 other kids that keep me busy. I have a 6 and 4 year old, both clomid babies so I'm very lucky. I just can't remember getting these dude effects last time. How are u coping. Have you had any side effects

I am really falling to pieces because I feel like getting pregnant is the only thing that will help because I lost my baby a day after birth Jan this year. He was my first born,  I am an emotional wreck so not sure if that's a side effect or just still grieving.  Other than that,  I have headaches,  relatively more frequent urination, mild cramping on both sides and heartburn.  It's good talking to u. Thanks

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, I can't imagine what u must be going through. Iv also had more frequent urination but Iv also been drinking more water so that's probably why in my case. Iv had cramps off and on today and also really tired and a headache all day. It's so hard and unfair with all these symptoms as Iv read they are symptoms of the clomid. I didn't get them last time so I'm dreading having to go though it all again if I'm not successful this time.  What dose did the doctor put you on. When will you test. Just try and keep busy but I know it's tough and it does take over your thoughts. Sending baby dust your way.

I took  50mg.  I ve been trying to keep busy but it can mean to be hard. Even thinking of taking a serum test. I am told it can give you accurate results a week before your period.

How do you take a serum test. Is that done at the doctors. I'm on 50mg too. Did u track your ovulation. I wish I had so defo going to do it next time
Avatar universal
Yes, at the doctors. Didn't truck my ovulation either. I am now convincing myself that am not pregnant so I can stop torturing myself. I think I should abandon the whole ttc business. Then I'll have some peace.

Please don't give up hope. I know it's tough. Have you spoke to your partner about how u feel.  I don't think I'm pregnant either. I just don't feel it. I did with my last 2.  R u on clomid because u have pcos?

My husband is really supportive,  I am on clomid because I have irregular periods and I took it without a prescription but if I am not pregnant this month. Am abandoning the whole ttc business
