Glad to see a new thread, the other one was giving me lots of trouble.

 

UGh

I don’t know what’s going on with my stupid body.  I did Clomid followed by Prometrium for my last cycle. I thought I was getting a period on January 20th, but I never got beyond spotting and the GYN’s nurse said don’t stop the Prometrium until at leat after 28 days and a BFN, even though I had had 23 day cycles before, which this would have been another one of the those. AF appeared to start for good on January 27th so I tested BFN and stopped the Prometrium. Short 4 day AF, on the lighter side. So this is where it gets really weird I had a positive OPK on Sat. which is either CD 9 or CD 16 depending on what was really AF.  We did BD on Sat but Sunday’s OPK which I took really late was a very faint line and I started feeling like crap from all the junk food at a Superbowl party so no BD we just couldn’t get going. Hope we didn’t mess up. Ugh. I don’t know what to think. At least my RE appointment is Tomorrow. So much paperwork.

@kayakgirl73:  So wait, you had a positive OPK Saturday? If the line Sunday was light, that means it was negative. The second line on an OPK must be as dark or darker than the control line to be positive.

@bunny:  

Saturday’s appeared to be as dark as the control line. Clearblue test. Sunday’s was very very faint but was taken more than 24 hours after saturday’s test. So if I o’d I’m sure it had passed by Sunday. Just my cycle days are crazy so who knows what was really Aunt Flo last month.

@kayakgirl73:  I’m in the same boat — Provera back in January followed by a lighter than usual period, and I’m supposed to be on CD25 of my first Femara cycle, but I had spotting/bleeding on CDs19-23. Now the doctor isn’t sure where I’m at in my cycle. 

I just spoke with the nurse and I’m to take a pregnancy test first thing tomorrow AM just to be sure (though with my progesterone so low last week, I know I’m not pregnant), and then start provera again tomorrow to get me back to square one. We’re upping my Femara dosage, but I’m not sure how much. I forgot to ask. I’ll have to bring that up with the nurse tomorrow.

@bunny:  Dont you HATE when they make you take the pregnancy test before they’ll give you provera.  It’s just like a kick in the gut.  I really really hope the Femara does it’s job this month for you!

@Candy_Nee:  Thanks! If the next dosage up doesn’t work, we’ll probably go back to clomid. I hated the side effects, but I’m willing to put up with them for the assurance that I’ll ovulate. I’m actually glad they’re making me take one. I didn’t before my last round of provera because I thought it would hurt to see the BFN, but then after that I kept wondering if I miraculously been pregnant and ruined everything, so it will be nice to have that negative test in my pocket in case I second guess myself.

So I’m seriously getting antsy at 10dpiui (probably 9dpo).  I made sure to pee quickly in the morning so that I would not take a test.  I’m willing myself to be feeling twinges and that might be true, but I just don’t know.  By the way I’ve decided that the only viable symptom is twinges.  All of the other are simply hormonal (IMO).

@bunny:  well I’ve had 13 and 14 day LP’s on Clomid.  So that puts AF at Friday or Saturday.  I would really like to wait it out, but I”ll probably test Sat if I make it that far…
