Share with others how you get through the "wait to O" period of your cycle. For some this is a short wait and can sometimes catch us off guard but for others with a long cycle, it can be a frustrating wait.

Thanks for all the help & enouragement Mel, Vickie & Michele, you gals are great!!

I do, I really appreciate it!! Well, of course DF didn't "feel like it", last night.....so, oh well! I really don't know if I can do these OPK's?! Because you drive yourself crazy testing & then when you FINALLY get what you want to see, circumstance are against you to BD....am I right? am I right?

Cd22 today and another neg OPK...looks like no O for me this month.:smileysad: I will call the REs office this afternoon and go in for my progesterone test tomorrow to confirm that I didn't O. Then we will see what the RE has to say. DH is home tonight...:smileyvery-happy:So we will do some BDing tonight and tomorrow night "just in case" and then we are gone for 3 nights on a family vacation for spring break. Not much BDing going on in the hotel room with 3 kids. Since I only have 1 more round of clomid, I will need to decide whether to start taking my progesterone to induce AF or play the" wait and see" game and see if I O on my own. Not sure here I stand on that. Trying really hard to stay positive.

Vickie- sorry AF showed for you. I know what you mean about trying to decide when to quite. It is just so hard to except that there will be no more babies. I am praying that you find peace.

Been missing you Sharon. I think we all have been busy or just not talking much lately.

CD-12 for me. This month I started using the OPK (Cheap ones). But I read somewhere where they are more accurate than the digital ones, because the detect LH surge at a lower # (Hope this makes sense). Anyway, yesterday started having some EW looking CM, but I am getting negative OPK. I purchased the mucinex tablet to help my CM. Any suggestion on when should I take it,
Hoping and praying this is our month... for all of us!

I think I'm just going to wait this cycle out here in the waiting to O thread. I'm on CD 15 and don't know if or when O happened or would have happened. I felt O pains Friday and thought sure my temp would rise Sat morning but it dropped really low. Hubby got sick Saturday so if O happened after that we have a bum cycle to wait thru. I didn't get to temp with him in the hospital so I couldn't see when my temp rose.

7dpo here... strange temperatures though, all above cover line but dipping until today. In the past have stayed pretty even temperature wise until the day of AF. Anyway, not to expectant here, only real symptom so far is me wanting to eat everything in sight today. Still about 5-6 days early for that when AF related. Usually I'm eating everything the day of my AF and I am still 6-8 days out on that so... I guess I'll hang my hat on that wee possibility.

Hi everyone.

Sorry to be MIA for so long, but things got really busy here and I had a lot of soul searching to do. My last clomid cycle was a bust with no O. When I called my RE, the nurse said that the Dr thinks that the clomid
