Hey Ladies,

Can you believe it. Clomid worked for me the first time and not the second and now the 3rd at 100mg is not looking so hot as it has started to look like cycle two.

So here is what's going on. I'm getting good (kinda low quality this cycle) CM and some general cramping/sharp pains. Then it dries up, no more cramps with 3 days of somewhat higher temps and then it drops again and stays dry as a bone. What am I missing here? What is my body not getting enough of or too much of?

Having it work the first and then not subsequent times is so terribly disappointing.

Totally let down and defeated,
Lauren

Here are my past three charts. Ignore the little pregnancy flower, I was on provera to jump start cycle three and stopped temping.

Oops.

Here ya go.

Nothing much has changed. I already got the script for the 150mg. I'm pretty darn devastated.

We're considering flying to see a fertility specialist to see about getting the trigger shot. It's going to be all out of pocket so hopefully all will work out well.

Yeah, I've given up on this month but I told my OB I would wait until the 21st to take the provera. She's such an optimist. There's just no evidence by my CP, OPKs or CM that the o Fairy is on her way.

Any thoughts as to what is misfiring in my body? I get the sense I am missing something. It's like I want to O and body gets all ready and then it just doesn't happen. Similar to that first month when I did O, it took a long time and weeks of CM for it finally to happen.

The specialist is on O'ahu. So a pain, but not that big of a pain. I am considering taking the 150mg and then scheduling the appointment at the midway point of my cycle so they might be able to at least check my follies while I am there.

Either that or give my body a month off. I'm not sure which.

Such a bummer.

{{{HUGS}}} This is all so frustrating for you, and I know it's made more frustrating because of Akeelah's loss.
