Question- has anyone here tried clomid or femara? My ob suggested we do this after I wean since it has already been close to a year ttc and I’m 35. My concern is that she is not a fertility specialist. Her instructions on how to take progesterone were obviously incorrect, so that’s a red flag. Would I be better off going to an RE for this treatment or has anyone worked with their OB?

@curlygirlp:  yes I told him straight away because the first test wasn’t as dark and I wanted his opinion. His eyes went wide and he smiled so much when he saw it. 

Sorry about your bfn. There’s still time! If not then fingers crossed for your next cycle 🤞

@lucyinsky:  Hi Bee. I was on Clomid last month and it was my first cycle on it and actually got pregnant but was a chemical pregnancy. I was only being seen by my OB.

Cd 14 today, and had blazing positive OPK. We BD’d CD12 night and CD13 morning, and should BD tonight – but omg. Migraine. 😫

I sometimes get migraine during ovulation and/or right before AF (I assume something to do with hormones), and ugh. It sucks….

Might just have to skip tonight. Maybe this cycle isn’t it 😒

Hey girls, AF came tonight so I’ll be rolling over to September. I’m rooting for all of you who have yet to test and will check back in!

@mrswannabemomma on the early end of two. She is growing much too quickly for my taste 😭


i peed on a stick and swear I saw something and have held on to the strip for almost 3 hours and there’s a little something but I think it’s an evap line at this point. 

i took another against my better judgement and there is absolutely nothing there. I’ll try again Friday. I did order some first  responses that’ll be here today. Is it bad if I use one? Lol
