Thanks Kelly let us know how your baseline u/s goes!
Baseline was awesome...sooo excited to be starting with such a great number of antrals !! Just praying the one or two with the good egg(s) will be the one(s) that mature and bring us our rainbow baby(ies) !
I am really feeling like the supplements helped . It looks like I'll stim well and hopefully the supps will also have helped with quality.
I start femara tonight, injections on Sunday, a follie check next Wednesday, and trigger the following Friday...eek sooo excited !
So excited for you Kelly!
Laura- I preferred Femara over Clomid in terms of side effects. I had much more bad side effects with Clomid, although a thin uterine lining wasn't one of them for me. Femara is covered by insurance but Clomid is on the generic list at Walmart so it's pretty cheap there too.
I have not used clomid but the only side effects I had from Femara were super mild and may even just be related to my cycle since they aren't uncommon for me. I had hot-flashes and headaches but taking it at night (my RE says 6pm-9pm) helps since I fall asleep shortly afterwards.
I honestly can't imagine your dr wouldn't be on board with it! Really hoping and praying your RE will move forward with Femara and it brings you your super sticky bfp !!!!!
Jessie...so excited to be cycle buddies ! What cd day did you O last time? I triggered on cd12 and am pretty sure I Oed on cd15 (supposed to O 36hrs after trigger) .
Afm...took my first dose of femara ! Ha...dh just informed me that he'll be out of town the night of cd12 which is when I'll likely trigger...we'll just have to do an early morning bd before he leaves . I'm not worried about it...he has good swimmers

Kelly - I'm excited to be cycle buddies too! I have been ovulating around day 18 but this cycle I'm doing clomid 3-7 instead of 5-9 so maybe an earlier o! I have a lot going on right now with buying our 1st house and I got a random job offer (same company different mall) so hopefully maybe the distractions this cycle will help!! Haha
Lizzy - how are you doing? I've been thinking about you!!
Cbrown - hoping you can join the BFP party this week!!
Kelly, welcome back.
Jessie, I hope you are feeling better.
Laura, I'm glad your seeing the RE next week. I hope he is willing to give it a try. Still thinking about you.
To all those who received their bfp: Congrats!
AFM: I'm on cd6 and will finish clomid tomorrow. I feel like its already working on my ovaries. Slight headaches but no other problems. We are stuck in Fl another day because of the bad weather in Georgia. I hate to go home to yucky cold but we've been gone long enough that I miss my bed.
Erica...I'm only 3 days behind you, woot ! I can usually tell by my 3rd day of Femara that it's working because my ovaries start to feel twingy . Seriously, by the time I trigger I feel like I have boulders in my pelvis, lol, it's not painful, just full and heavy feeling .
Ugh, so sorry you're missing your bed ! It must be the week for delays !!! Our train delayed for 5hrs at Union Station in Chicago (apparently Amtrak had "frozen toilets" and needed to thaw them ) and then the 3.5hr train ride turned into a 5hr ride due to various reasons. We arrived at our train station at 5am and it was unexpectedly closed so I had to walk my girls and our luggage for half a mile through downtown in below zero weather and snowy sidewalks to the hospital since it was the only place open and warm! Dh arrived about 10mins after we did to take us home...it was soooo good to crawl into bed !
really praying you get home very very soon!!!
Will you be getting a follie check this cycle? Are you using a trigger? I'm so glad you're not having any crazy clomid symptoms! I've never used it but I've heard they can be brutal .
There are so many of us so close in our cycles...just so super exciting !!!!!
Afm...I'm added to the March Testers thread, woooohooooo ...now to add the in a few weeks . Oh, that reminds me...my almost 4y/o dd told me out of the blue today that I'm going to have two babies. So I asked her if she meant her and her little brother (I call them "my baby girl and baby boy" since they're my two youngest) and she said no, that I was going to have two babies and nurse them like I nursed her ...hoping she's right !
Kelly, frozen toilets about made me crack up. Oh my word! How do they become frozen ...makes it sound like an outhouse. I would have been fuming mad if I'd got t the station and it was closed. Like they didn't know a train was coming. Glad you made it safely home.
I'm not doing any test or checks other than opk and cd21 progesterone check. I think my Dr didn't want it to be to stressful starting out.
I looked at Atlanta conditions and have to wonder if we will make it home Friday.
7 days til I have my beta.... Cramping a lot.... Nausea at times and a headache most of the time....
I actually live in IN so its the drive from Fl to home I'm worried about.
Laura, we were suppose to leave yesterday and be home tonight but because of the weather we stayed in Daytona. We didn't want to be stuck in freezing rain with no place to sleep,shower, and eat. We'll stop somewhere in Georgia tonight and finish drive home tomorrow. In Jacksonville now and hate to leave but its time to go home. Can't wait to sleep in my bed.
Anyone experience migraines on clomid? I don't know if its the med or horrible sleeping because of the awful bed. I took some excedrin migraine and placed a bekool migraine soft gel cooling sheet on my neck and that has helped.
Happy Valentine's Day !!!!!!!!!!!!
We are so close in our cycles too, Laura...really hoping we both end up with Nov bundles !
Erica...I've heard the headaches can be severe on clomid . Are you done taking it now?
Lizzy...you're getting soooo close , eeek, really hoping and praying for good news !!!
Mary...I hope your tww is going by fast! I can't wait to hear an update from you !
Lucy...how is your tww going so far? Did you get my fb message with the list of supps?
Cindy...what cd are you?
CBROWN...thinking of you !!!!!!!!
Afm...if everything goes like it did last time, only one more week until I trigger and 3wks until I test ! I can't wait to see how my follies are responding next week...hoping the supps helped . 3-4 fat follies at trigger would be spectacular!
Kelly: I'm concerned 31. Af should have been here yesterday. I tested yesterday also and it was bfn. Didn't bother testing this morning. Too depressing seeing only 1 line. I have the CG tests and read they aren't as sensitive as the wondfos so if af isn't here by tomorrow, I'll us an Answer test.
Concerned? Concerned? I didn't type concerned! !!! I hate spellcheck. 😈 Lol. I'm on cd 31. 😊
I am still cramping daily....not horrible....but definitely noticeable.....today it feels like I need to pee all the time....yes I normally drink a lot of fluids, but this is not my normal.....
Seriously want to test early....but probably won't....DH doesn't want me to test early mainly because he doesn't want me to get disappointed and depressed.....
5 more days.....5 more long long long days........
Lizzy I have a very good feeling this is it for you!!!
Af is here.
