Hi all,

My RE just emailed me a list of supps he wants me to be on beginning immediately, before I begin IVF with him, and I thought you might like to see too:

LaRae, I hear Clomid dries of the CM, which would make BD not much fun! Does this happen? I know there is always preseed, but still...I also hear it cuases moodiness, which for my BD life would be a worse turn off than the scant CM!

Pix, that melatonin is nice isn't it? I like it--I find it helps me fall asleep but not stay asleep...I also take magnesium at night which helps too.

Thanks wannabe!!!! You are so sweet. :) I was given the go-ahead for a May or June IVF....and I am really tempted but at the same time, I still need to get out of my energy rut, work out and all. I also just lost my job last week---after 5 years I was laid off along with some others due to company restructuring. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TTC along with being jobless just seem to not go together. Is the Universe trying to tell me something?????

Hey Dianne, I know that sometimes stress isn't a good thing, but I got preggers during the most stressful time of the year. I was teaching at the time, and we did our IUI two weeks b/f school started. That's the most horrendous time of year for a teacher. Honestly, I think it helped take my mind off of things. Whatever you do, don't make the same mistake we did...we kept putting off baby-making waiting for the perfect job situation. Boy would I like a do-over on that one!

Hey Pix -- how much DHEA did you take, and for how long? My RE said I could try it (she's not so big on supplements, which surprises me). She said the research is just anecdotal, and inthe studies done for DHEA, patients were on it for a min. of 3-60 days b/f seeing a difference. What's been your experience with it?

Dianne clomid has given me no problems with being dry, at all, however we are VERY much newlyweds and I have no problems in that area anyway! WE LOVE SEX! Lol... I TOTALLY had the moodiness though, I had to really work at containing myself for about 10 days, which was the second day of taking the pill to around O'ing. DH said I was really good at controlling it, he could see that I was struggling and said I was amazing at handling it. He is so sweet.
