clomid



Okay, so apparently clomid can give a false positive on OPK's if you test too soon after taking the pills. I guess I tested too soon, and it was not a true LH surge. I kept testing, and today I finally got another positive! I think this is it! I really hope so! If I ovulate tomorrow (and hopefully conceive) , it would be kinda ironic because tomorrow is my daughters Birthday!

Grrrr..I Don't need STRESS right now!

Oct 03, 2010 - 3 comments

So, I'm supposed to be in my fertile window, and I've been trying to relax and decrease stress, and BAM! Friday night as we are heading out to the football game, there is water all over the garage floor! NICE! Our water heater died, and leaked all over, so now we have to replace it. Great, just what I need right now. So yesterday we go out to get a new one, the sales lady says installation will be $298 plus you need a permit which is another $200. WTF?? The water heater itself is $388 not including tax, so you're telling me installation cost more than the appliance itself? Forget that! We'll install it ourselves! So that's what we'll be doing the rest of this weekend! So we purchase the water heater, take it home, and unload it, now we have to remove the old one. Well, first we have to finish draining what water is left in it, then remove it. So, we manage without any major incidences, and the platform is all wet, so we dry up as much as we can set up the portable heater to fan it and get it to dry faster. This was all good and it was finally drying enough to be able to put the new one in. So far so good! Well, we go inside and DH says he's gonna take a shower (cold, of course) and turns on the water and the pressure is so low he says forget it. So we go to my moms house to take our showers and as we go out the garage door, the damn pressure in the pipes must have pushed any remaining water out and now there is water all over the place and the platform is soaked and we are back to square one! Now we have to start the drying process all over again, and wait until Sunday (today) to finish! That's if we don't have to replace the platform first! UGH! And who knows how long it's gonna take to even install the new one! Needless to say, I did not sleep well, I tossed and turned, I woke up every hour, and then it started raining this morning! It was 4:45 a.m. when I took my temp, way earlier than usual, so I know my temperature this morning is not very accurate, so I now I don't even know if I actually ovulated yet or not. I'd like to think so, but now I have to wait a couple more days to see if my temps are still up. DH is worn out, says not sure if he can perform today or not, so we may have to rely on whats "in there" from the the last 3 days. Arrrrgh! I really wanted this to be our month, and I didn't want to have to do another round of Clomid, and now I'm stressing, and I know that's not good for me right now, but I can't help it!! I sure hope we can get this water heater in today without many problems. I NEED A DRINK!!

Starting Clomid

nervous



I'm starting Clomid tomorrow. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing, I'm not really sure why, I just seem to have some mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I'm excited and looking forward to it, hoping that it works for me, but on the other hand, I'm nervous because I know it does not work for everyone, and I'm a little worried about having the side effects I have read some women have. I've also read that it can dry up CM and also thin the uterus lining, which I am not looking forward to if this happens. I don't have much of a period as it is, so I'm worried maybe my lining is already thin and if that is why I can't get preggers then Clomid will just make it worse. I did have a pretty heavy first day flow this time, so I'm hoping that's a good thing. I  guess I won't know unless I try. I also have mixed feelings because I would love to be able to say " I conceived naturally", but then again, If a little help with clomid means I can conceive sooner than later, then I'm all for it. I don't know if it will work for me, but it's worth a try.

Confused!!

Sep 05, 2010 - 10 comments

I am sooo confused! It appears that I have not ovulated yet, and it baffles me. I was pretty sure I would O on CD 9, 10, or 11, but I have had a temp rise yet. In fact, the most baffling thing is this morning my temp was the lowest it has ever been pre-O! It looks like maybe I will have an anovulatory cycle this month or something... I don't know, I am just so confused. I have never O'd this late, but I did take Vitex this cycle, so maybe that has delayed my ovulation or something. I don't know what to do or think at this point... I know it's possible at our age to not ovulate every cycle, so that is the only thing I can think of. Geez, that *****!! UGGHH! I started taking OPK's on CD 7, and they are all dark enough to look positive, but my digital says negative. No happy face! What is going on? Why are they so dark so many days in a row, and not a positive with the digital??? I Need help!
