AF showed up on her own...w00p w00p!

Normally it wouldn't be something to celebrate on here, but we were a bust this cycle since I didn't ovulate.


I started my third round of Clomid this morning, and will be going in for blood work and an an ultrasound on May 12th (CD 12).  Here is to hoping the combo of Met + Clomid will work for me, if not we are off to an RE on June 9th!

Good news, are you taking 50, 100, or 150?  Wishing you lots of luck this cycle!! :)

Thanks :)


100 again - For some reason my doctor is against putting people on 150.

Fingers crossed!  What does the blood work and U/S on CD12 look for?  My Dr. only ordered blood work on CD21.

Good question... I know the ultrasound is to check for follicles, but what is the blood work for?

Allie- did your Dr. say when/if they were going to move you up to the higher dose?


I'm on day 7 of prometrium with no AF in sight...was hoping I'd get it today because I know a few people have said it started as early as day 7.  I just want to start the Clomid already!

CCIA - that's awesome news!!! I know, its funny we celebrate AF but without it a BFP will never come :)


Just some irony - my mom is going through menopauce and she cries each month when she gets hers and I spend my days willing for mine to come! She said she would give hers to me... if only it works that way... haha!


Speaking of my AF, I finished prometrium/provera on Friday so it should be showing up any day now...

I O-ed last month on 50, so I think we will stay on that unless I don't O this month or something. :)


I was on Provera for 7 days, and had to finish all the pills and wait a few days until AF showed!!  Fingers crossed she comes for you!!  We might be cycle twins.  AF is supposed to come in 2 days for me, and then I will start round 2 of Clomid! :)  I don't feel pregnant, except swollen/tender boobs, but it feels just like it did last month before AF showed!! :)

On a side note...I've never slept better in my life than I have this week with the prometrium.  I'm usually such a light sleeper and constantly wake up every hour on the hour but with this I'm out til morning.  DH has been on the night shift and he's even commented about how I'm sleeping through when he gets home...last night he said he even dropped something and made a loud noise and I still didn't wake up!

Funny that you say that, because I'm just like you (a super light sleeper) and I slept better while I was on the meds too!!  Not the Premarin, but I definitely noticed it with Provera and even Clomid!! :)  Hormones do cause fatigue and exhaustion, but for someone like me it's a good thing!

The ultrasound and blood work on CD 12 will show them if I have responded to the Clomid and they will be able to tell if I am going to ovulate (There should already be follicles). 


Allie - it is so weird, I had side effects on 50 mg (just hot flashes) but on 100 mg I didn't have any side effects!
