What is your bloodwork for today? 21 day check or a Beta? (sorry, so much going on on this board that I'm confused!)

Hey Jeanne! I know, everyone has so many different things going on it is hard to keep it all straight! I wasn't sure what exactly the Dr. blood draw order would include, I was hoping for an hcg but it was just a progesterone check to see if I O'd this month on the Clomid, but it will be a good number to have if I end up with a BFP in a few days, I go in on Friday to see the Dr. to discuss the results and see if I do another cycle on Clomid. I am hopeful still, I think I need to wait another day or two before I use my other FRER test, back in February I didn't see a BFP until CD27 but felt the bb pain a good 5 days before that. Ugh, waiting is sooooooooooo hard!!

Waiting is the worst!


Most docs won't do hcg until 14 dpo. (I know, I've tried, ha!) But all of your signs are good it seems. Did you have any u/s's during this cycle to see how you responded to clomid?

No, no u/s, nothing except this b/w on CD24 to check progesterone to see if I O'd, he is an older OB, so I am thinking he is not very proactive, compared to all the tests I hear you ladies get. I am so unfamiliar with it all, I can't believe how much I have learned being on this board this last month, I will for sure have lots of questions for him if I end up with a BFN and decide whether to go on Clomid again.

LaRae,
You're not temping, right? The twinges, etc. you felt could have been late ovulation. Clomid does that to people.

best,
martha

Thanks Martha, I guess it is possible but I am pretty sure I O'd on the 21st, I had a fairly + OPK that morning (IC that is so hard to read) and all day had LOTS of obvious EWCM and major O type pain, DTD that night was major ouch in that area too, all those symptoms were gone the next day. I'm not saying for sure but I am hoping it was O cause we really got some good bding in and this bb pain is intense enough I am so hopeful this cycle that we got it!! =) HOWEVER, I understand nothing is certain until you actually see that BFP!

Thanks Jodi, it is all good, I am so lucky and blessed, my previous marriage was not good, we were married almost 20 yrs but I should have left a long time before I did, he had an alcohol problem and an anger problem as well, not a good combination, I finally got the courage to leave and then was blessed with finding a good, gentle, loving man, I am living an amazing life now. =) We are having a small ceremony at a Vineyard near the coast range mountains here in Oregon, we will have about 50 people there and it is in the evening at 5pm. We wanted to keep it small and simple, my fiance was never going to get married again but I was able to change his mind without saying a word, he just realized life will be different with me and eventually asked. =) His request to keep it small was important to him, he didn't want it to be about the ceremony, more about us and our friends and family and the celebration after so we will have a short 10 min ceremony and then 5 hrs of food and wine! We have the important things done, I just need to do some final touches like my jewelry, what to do with me and the girls hair (they are the only ones standing up with me/us during ceremony), table center pieces (I think I will make myself), etc. No honeymoon right now, we both have a 2 week christmas break, we are thinking about going somewhere then, I work for the school district, he teaches Aviation Science at a college here in town, it is so cool our schedules are like that! So we may go to Florida or Hawaii then, depending on if we want to spend the money on that or more work on the house we just moved into! Sorry, long answer to your questions! Oh and yes, I will share pics! =)
