Hi,


Here is my long story......


Dh and I tried for eight months and found out that I don't ovulate on my own. We got on clomid and on the first round got our bfp. We were so excited. We made it to 34 weeks and found out that our little girl and grown her angel wings. It was so earth shattering and I can't describe how painful this was. She grew her wings on March 16th, 2010.


We waited for about four months and decided to ttc again. We tried one month without medication and still nothing, no ovulation. So last month we started on clomid, foll checks, and progesterone checks. I was feeling really good about this month because during the foll check we found out I had two good eggs. But AF showed up this month so I know that it was not successful. I know we have just started this journey again, but I am starting to get so upset and frustrated because this has been such a long journey already and all I want is a kicking screaming baby. I just wonder why does it have to be so hard for us.


Sorry to vent and rant my first time here...anyway, I was wondering are any of you on Clomid and how your journeys have been. I am just really needing support for those who are going thru the same things on this whole ttc journey. Thanks in advance for any info and support!

Hi Elana- I am so sorry you have to join us on this board, but it can be a great source of support, sympathy, and knowledge. I can't imagine your heartache about losing your baby at 34 weeks. That is beyond tragic and I am just so sorry for you and your husband. I don't have much information to give you- I'm on my first cycle of clomid and hoping for the best. I ovulate on my own, but my dr put me on it in hopes of producing a better egg, and maybe 2 good quality eggs instead of one. I had surgery in March on my funky shaped tubes, and I'm hoping that did the trick. I'm Andrea, 32 and my partner Tom, 42 and I are TTC our first.

Welcome to the board, and baby dust to you!

Hello Carissa,


I'm so sorry you're struggling through this and I can't even begin to imagine the pain of losing your baby.

Hi Carissa,


I am glad to see so many other ladies have welcomed you. I actually have a similar story to you. I also do not ovulate, as I have PCOS. I was on 3 rounds of clomid with no luck and now I am living in limbo. I am waiting to get another RE opinion as the first one was not such a positive experience. Are you seeing an RE yet or just an OB?


I had a loss too although not as hard a one to endure as you. I had a m/c when I thought I could not get pregnant and since then no BFP.


Hopefully you will find the support here you need. I know that these ladies have given me great strength to go on each day.

Andrea,


Good luck this month! I know the first month when I was on Clomid I ovulated myself and that is how I got my bfp with Elana. I hope that you get your bfp this month! Keep me in the loop and let me know how things go :)

Ladies,


Thank you so much for your support and warm welcome! I wish none of us had to be here, but hopefully we will all get our bfp sooner than later :) Thanks again and I will keep you all informed on my progress. I will be starting clomid in three days and will be having a foll check on the 10th. Good luck to all of you this month!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I just had my first loss in July due to an ectopic and all losses are hard. I am glad you are back on track and ttc. I used Femara instead of Clomid but I've heard good stories with Clomid also.

I have to wait until November to try again due to my ectopic. I can't wait to get back on the ttc bandwagon because I also want a baby to hold. :)

Good luck.

Hi,



Sorry I am new to this but do you know what the difference is between Femara and clomid? Just wondered. I am so sorry about your loss. I know how hard it can be. I will be thinking of you and hoping that time flies and November gets here quick.
