I'm here still lurking and occasionally posting. Maybe some of the oldies (bad choice of words) will remember me or maybe not. I thought I'd better join in because there have been many BFP's lately which is so great, hoping that the baby dust will fall on me too!



I have had 2 losses and a chemical pregnancy last year.

Hi Susan,

This is my first cycle and I am CD 7. The doc had me take the one super dose and thought maybe I'd be feeling lots of changes but nothing so far. Like you said with clomid you felt your ovaries would pop out.

Sorry about your chemical pregnancies but we are waiting for the golden egg. There has got to be one good one left that will pop out I hope!!!

I've never felt old but boy this TTC sure does make me feel that way. When I see girls in their prime (twenties) I think that is WAY too young to have babies. At thirty I still thought I was too young to be a mother! Kinda crazy I guess. Now that I feel ready my body says I'm too old. :( How can we fool the body?

Thanks Pix! I was just thinking I was an odd one. I remember all my girlfriends wanting to get married and have babies and I used to think no way not now! But it's nice to know I'm not alone in thinking the way I did/do. Now that the time is right, lets hope our bodies will work for us!!!

Hi Susan,

I'm sorry but really don't understand what all the stuff means! Trigger shot, brevelle because I never did any of that. I might have to soon tho as time is ticking! The doctor didn't even want to give me any fertility pills because it's not good for CM. This is my 5th cycle of trying (timed BD) and nothing so I asked another doc. She gave me the super dose 20mg one day. She said that from what she sees is that over the 4 or 5 day treatment it really doesn't do anything. I spoke with another doc who prefers to do it over several days. So who knows! I thought my system would blow up with all those little pills but I survived!

I just read yesterday that if you are at least having chemical pregnancies that is a good sign because your body is able to produce an embryo ( I think an embryo ) Oh well it's a good sign!

Wendy, the femara is the one and only thing that has ever improved my CM.

HI Susan,



I think the other doc was talking about the clomid and drying up CM but I'll wait and see about femara. Yes I did read the article and maybe I read it too fast. Is the super dose 7.5mg for several days? My doc wanted the one day extra super dose. She said she thought that was better than taking it for several days at a lower dose. I really didn't want to but I hope she knows! We'll see what happens this cycle and go from there maybe we'll do the trigger and other stuff! Time is ticking real quick.

Hi Susan I'll let you know how the super dose works this cycle. They haven't done any real testing on me because the 3 times I got preggo was naturally. Didn't use anything except for vitamins and herbs. Maybe now that it's been a while I might need some extra help but we'll see what happens. I think the fact that it's worked for you is a great sign just gotta find the right eggie!
