Oh, Hoping4babysoon, I was so hoping that AF wouldn't show! I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm glad you will be sticking around here, though. Keep us updated.

hey ladies.. writing from my phone so please excuse any typos!

you all are so inspirational.. you ladies are so strong and amazing. by far the must caring board i have ever witnessed.. so glad i get to be a tiny part of it! no one understands the pain and heartache we go through. we haven't told any family and none of my friends seem too interested in our writes.. they care, they just don't get it. so i live having you ladies.

I'm cd15 and have had super strong positive opks for 3 days straight. i always tell myself that I'm not going to test again after my first positive, but i can't help it! not sure what to make of it since i don't temp.. my abdomen feels super swollen and heavy today.. achey.. it always does around this time I'd the month ever since i started clomid.. wondering if this is actual ovulation pain? i have never felt o pain before, and to be honest, this feels more like a bad case if constipation.. but I'm nit constipated! lol.. any thoughts?

dh and i know that our chances are slim without iui,, but we are giving it all this last cycle with bd, robitussin, pre seed, and soft cups! fingers crossed for all of you

lisserb.. i forgot to congratulate you on out AF! rooting for you!

dmcj.. my abdomen looks swollen too. i am a thinner girl, bit i have noticed my clothes fitting a lot more snug within this last month. (im on round 4 of clomid. i also notice I'm eating a lot more than usual.. and if it isn't junk, im not in the mood for it. i have never been a super healthy eater, but i have always enjoyed good fruits, veggies, and salads.. but i can't remember the last time i opted for any of that. not sure if that's the clomid, me approaching my 30s, or a lil bit of stress eating between TTC and a new promotion at work to a brand new department.

Hi Ladies!

Swimmom~I think a temperature shift is a good sign of ovulation. My charts are all over the place! Based solely on my charts I wouldn't be able to figure out when I ovulate.

Hoping4babysoon~BOOOOO to showing up for you. I love how optimistic you are. Please do stick around and keep us posted on your ttc journey.

BabyLoveJenn~I never really experienced o pains until I started taking Clomid. I get really bad pinching cramps and this cycle I also had some spotting a few days prior to ovulation. I also experienced some bloating but nothing too intense.

dmcj101~I haven't gained any weight since starting Clomid. I actually may have lost a few pounds but I'm thinking that is due to being more aware of what I'm eating and I haven't had an alcoholic drink since New Years!

As for me I am on cd26, 8dpo....and feeling lots of cramping. Pretty sure thats a sign af is rounding the corner. Symptoms are similiar to my last cycle so more then likely I'll be out again this month. Even though I should be used to this by now every month af arrives a little piece of me loses hope that this is ever going to happen for me and my dh. I need to steal a little bit of Hoping4babysoon's positive outlook!

hey babylove- hang in there
I was doing some research and found a temp dip can come right before O so I am praying.
Good night all

I'll join the bloated party. I never felt bloating at all until I started taking Clomid. I felt really bloated around when I got my pos OPKs and then after I ovulated the bloating went down, although there's still a tiny bit of random cramping here and there.

Everything comes in threes.....major blowout on the highway.....call from Cali that DH aunt passed away.....and Drs appointment was just as I thought.......2nd month no ovulation.

Now on to the next cycle with meds. Maybe AF will come naturally but not hopeful. A little down today ladies but I know this too shall pass.

Have a good day! Baby dust and sticky vibes for all you beautiful ladies.
