this cycle, i’ve have much higher temps pre-O than the last 3 cycles. the only thing that’s changed is that we’ve turned on our heater and changed to flannel sheets bc it’s cold in our un-insulated house!

just wondering if any other ladies have experienced this big shift before!

we’re TTA and just figuring out my cycle now before TTC next spring.

ETA: charts

Well, here’s mine. The up/down with the negative OPK’s and dodgy 9-day-high-but-no-peak reading on the Clearblue Fertility Monitor have basically told me that this cycle is, again, annovulatory. 

I see the RE on Wednesday for follow up, since this was my first Clomid cycle.

Also, I should note that since yesterday, my temp dropped back down to 97.6.

Lame.

@jaguar: You just need a little higher dose : (  Hopefully 100mg will do it? (That’s the next dose right?)

@JaneyD: I doubt it – I was only on 25mg this time – I will ask him for stronger, but he’s already told me that he likes to play it safe with Clomid. I bet he’ll put me on 50mg AT A PUSH.

@jaguar: Oh wow…I honestly haven’t heard of less than 50.  Everything I’ve read says 50, then 100, then 150.  I’ve seen a few ppl at 200, but it looks like most docs don’t go there.  Keep us updated…

@JaneyD: Yep, I’ll let you know Wednesday afternoon. πŸ™‚ Thanks for letting me vent. Makes me feel less like throwing an epic tantrum in real life!

@jaguar: The only place I’ve heard about less than 50 is in the book Making Babies. The doctor in that book put one of her PCOS patients on 10mgs of clomid and she ovulated. But I think that would be really, really rare.

@bunny: Yeah – that would do sweet nothing for me. If it means just getting the damn CHANCE to baby make, I’d take anything at this point.

Just wanted to let you all know that I’ll be joining this thread now! My new job means I’ll be waking at the same time every morning, so I can temp! YAY!

I won’t even post my chart yet, at CD 8 there is really nothing going on πŸ™‚  

I do wonder though, do you girls see a correlation between your chart every other month.  For instance, similar O times when you are ovulating on the same sides, since it switches every month?  I just noticed that, if I follow the every other pattern, I tend to O sooner on the side I’m on this month.  It’s been 11 and 13 as opposed to the 16 and 17 for the other months.  Just wondering if anyone else noticed this too πŸ™‚

@ecomaha: i actually see such a pattern on my charts. i tend to O earlier on my left side than on my right. and my left side cycles are 29 days, my right side cycles are more like 31-33.

@elchalten:  Thanks – thats very interesting!  this is our 4th cycle so i’m just starting to notice more trends.  i’m not sure what side I O on yet, I can’t really feel too much of a distinct pain at the time.  It helps to know though that we can probably expect an early O.  πŸ™‚
