Cycle 2 of Clomid

Hi all
Thanks for sharing your stories. You are a great encouragement to me

Tomorrow is the beginning of my 2nd cycle of Clomid.

Would love to chat with others who are using Clomid also.

Lots of Baby Dust to all

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

I just finished my second cycle of Clomid. I have never had any side effects while on the Clomid (I was on days 3-7). This last cycle though my follicles got very large, which was great...and I could actually feel ovulation (which I never have before). This matched OPK that predicted ovulation and my temps told me afterwards that in fact I did ovulate...so here's to praying and hoping I'm preggers this month!!

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Yay!! That is great news. Congratulations.
My fingers and toes are crossed for you! Lots of Baby Dust being sent your way!!!!!
Please keep us updated.

A few questions if you don't mind?
* Were you on 50mg or 100 mg of Clomid?
* Did you O on your first cycle?
* Did you have to take anything else with it?

I am taking 100mg Clomid Days 4-8.
No side effects this time either (yet!)
1st cycle I didn't O, hence doubling the dose!

Lots of Baby Dust

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

I am glad to hear that you are feeling good on the clomid. I have been off of it for 7 days. My uterus and insides are so very sore. I have never felt like this. Do you think it is the clomid? Is it too early to be pregnant or feel like this. My lower back also hurts and I feel so heavy in my tummy. Did you feel like this on your last dose of clomid? I am so confused. It does not feel like af cramps it is weirdly different. Please help!

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Hi Shawna,
I do not know what could be causing so much pain?
I think it sounds like it is worth seeing the Gyno about?
I didn't have that on my first cycle but I didn't O either!

It does say somewhere that if you experience abdominal pain to contact the doctor- I think that might be the best idea.

Maybe you are preggers???? I hope so.......
Sending lots of baby dust your way

Just wondering - did you chart temps? Use OPK's? or have the Day 21 Blood Test?

I hope the pain vanishes and you get a BFP really soon!


To all my TTC friends
My Update
Tomorrow is my last day of my second Clomid cycle (100mg) a day. I feel quite edgy but no other symptoms (and I am unusually teary!). We then move to the next phase- The Baby Dance Phase!!!!- Then Day 21 Blood Tests. I am really wondering how long we will be doing this for? Everyone around me (at work) is happily announcing their pregnancies......when is it our turn??

Sorry about the whinging as I said I am a bit emotional

Anyway, Thank you for listening to me and I hope to see lots more BFP for all those TTC.

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

I hope you get preggers this month. My pain is not intolerable but it is annoying. My lower back hurts, I am nauseated, and my ovaries feel like they will explode. I have been pregnant before and I don't remember feeling like this. Wouldn't it be too early for symptoms? I am glad to hear that you are doing good on the clomid. I have not been charting my temps or using a monitor. I know I probably should have but I just can't seem to remember to take my temps in the morning. I will remember to do it at like 10:00. If this cycle does not work then I will definately chart next month. I wish my doctor would let me come in for a blood test at 21 days. They just told me when I get a positive test to call them and if I don't he will call in more clomid.

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Hi there all!

Shawna, I don't think it would be too early for symptoms...some of which might I add sound very promising. I think everyone is different.
Good Luck.
It would be good if your DR would test at day 21 then you would have a clear picture if you are o'ing or not. Please keep us updated - let's hope June is the month for both of us.

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Hello,
Well I finally feel good today. I still have nausea but I am not hurting. I think I was ovulating or something. I thought clomid made you have nausea while you were taking it not days after. Has clomid made anyone else sick 9 days after? I hope I am nauseated from pregnancy. Who knows I guess we will see.
Aussie teacher- Are you ovulating yet? How are you feeling? Will this be your first pregnancy? I have a good feeling that June is the month for us! My last pregnancy was great I had no morning sickness, swelling feet or anything like that. It was too easy is guess. My son is 2 and he is a little angel. Everything has gone so smooth with him. He was conceived naturally. I guess this next baby will give a run for my money.

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

To answer some questions
This will be our first pregnancy....we never imagined it would be this difficult!

I am not sure if I have o'd yet- will know more in another week. I am using an OPK called Maybe Baby.

Am feeling pretty good and really hoping that June will be the month for us all!

Shawna,
I am glad to hear that the pain has gone- maybe you were o'ing? This could be a great sign. My fingers are crossed for you! I am sure this next bub will be just as perfect as your son...even though this process may have taken a little longer than your first.
Here is sending lots of Baby Dust your way.

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Hello,
I am 5dpo and I feel normal. I have slight nausea and my tummy feels full or bloated. I am not sure if it is side effects from the clomid or what. I think it would be too early to have pg symptoms but who knows. how soon can one test and what is the best test to use? I called my doc when I was in pain and he said that I was oving. He said it sounds like the clomid is doing its job. I guess we will see soon.
Aussieteacher- Have you ov yet? Are you having any pain from oving? I hope things are working out for you and your dh. Have fun while trying!
Shawna

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Thanks Shawna, I really appreciate your support!
I have just taken 100mg of Clomid this month. That will go to 150mg next month if I don't O this cycle (which I am very much doubting will happen) and the Gyno will proabably add metformin(?) as well.
Thurs 15th June is my next Day 21 Blood test and we will go from there.

I have a good feeling that June will be the month for you- it is all sounding really positive. I understand that you want to test but see if you can wait a bit longer as BFN are too disappointing especially if you are preg but just tested too early. I have my fingers crossed for you

Please keep me updated

Re: Cycle 2 of Clomid

Sorry it has taken so long to reply, but to answer your questions from before...I took 50mg Clomid (nothing else) my first and second cycles. I think I ovulated with my first cycle, although my follicles were pretty small with that cycle. I know I ovulated with my second cycle...but alas, I just got my AF 2 days ago...not pregnant again. But I've had thin uterine lining on my ultrasounds, which was worse on the Clomid...which they told me could decrease the chance of implantation. So, off to the specialist I go this month. I also am having an HSG test in about a week, where they check to make sure your uterus and follopian tubes are normal shape and are open. My husband just had a semen analysis 2 weeks ago...unfortunately the swimmers movement is a little on the low side, so we've got issues. However, I hope this is the month for both of you Aussieteacher and shawnaslover! Good luck!
