Awww, sorry you are feeling 'meh'. I know that exact feeling. Not great, not horrible, just 'meh'. I can also relate to certain "milestones" of TTC. For me, it was the 2 year mark. I don't think it's fair to count the number of cycles...just because you've had fewer actual cycles, doesn't mean it's ANY easier. If anything I would think it might even be more challenging, b/c at least those of us with fairly regular cycles had exactly that...and one less thing to stress over.

Anyhow, to you....

Just catching up. Yay for Oing! Sorry about the crazy clomid side effects. Are you still having side effects or have they subsided? Hopefully, next cycle you will O sooner, I imagine I could take a couple months to get your body to O at a good time.

Good luck! I hope it works for you!

The side effects THANKFULLY died down... after the first crazy day, the only side effects I had were hot flashes, which I had until last week.

I'm hoping to O sooner next month as well, but since you tend to only do clomid in 3 month batches, we'll see what happens.

Thanks Karin.. sometimes I feel bad about whining about how long it's been when I've had about half the number of cycles!!!

.. Today is CD 29, 11 DPO.

This is a hard 2WW for me.. I'm usually horrid at IPS.. you all know that that read the journal.. I've had ZILCH so far.. normally my boobs would have been tender for a day or two at this point, but nada.

And of course, me being an IPS person.. I'm going "OOOH, that's a sign!!".. LOL.

Nothing much going on life-wise for me right now.. did a ton of gardening over the weekend, and taking it chill this week.

I'll be testing Monday if AF doesn't show by then.. (yeah, I know..it's late..but we're leaving Friday night for the cabin and sis-in-law and grandma-in-law will be there all weekend..and Saturday is my "FF" testing day..and I just don't want to test with other people in close quarters)

Still no symptoms or anything. Don't feel like AF is close either. *Shrug*

Well, I tested this morning because..pfft..who was I to kid that I'd wait til Monday? LOL.

ANd it was... a BFN. Not even a squinter. So because it's been 4 days since my chart went to "possible triphasic" and a negative hpt.. I'm most likely out

Boo. So sorry hon. I still think your temps look promising, but I know your timing was poop this month, so I know how you are feeling. I'll bite my tongue and yet still say "You're not out until the shows", even though that is so cliche! (True though!)

Hope you have a super fun weekend!

Ok, now I have to admit that I wish I brought a test with me, or at least my bbt. The oodles of CM I've had looks like it's dried up overnight, still no sign of AF. Had some cramping yesterday (but I also ate eggs and that can also cause me to cramp up), and my bbs are a bit sore, but not as sore as usual before af.

Ah well. If it hasn't shown by home time, I think I'll pick up a frer instead of using another IC just in case.

Along with a major temp drop.. I'm expecting AF to show today.

Ah well, I knew the chances this cycle were exceedingly slim... but the extra-long LP had me hoping a bit too much I guess.

This post is full of WAY TMI!!!!

Well, I stayed home today... because my cramps are ridiculously strong ... it's at the point where aleve barely dulls the pain to a dull roar. AND, so glad I stayed home. I took Appa out for a nice hour long walk (which for him is on the short side, but whatever), and then went to the store and came home.. was gone a total of just under 2 hours.. and my diva cup overflowed. Not leaked - overflowed. NEVER been this heavy before... so much for Clomid thinning the lining..unless it all wanted to come out in ONE fell swoop.. hahahaha.

Anywho.. now I'm outside on the deck in the shade with my laptop and just hanging out with my pup.

Awwww....eeeeew

Sorry you are having such a crappy (crampy?) day. But glad you at least got out for some of your walk with Appa (and I'm sure he appreciated it as well, even if it was short).

Feel better, enjoy the out of doors and your pup! x
