It's been an eventful few days. My HPTs went negative from my trigger, then I got a BFP that got a little bit darker (but just a little, SO little) for 3 days, then on Christmas eve it was almost gone, and on Christmas morning my test was white again. It's okay though. I'm pretty bummed, but I have hope for future cycles.

The whole thing that prompted me to see a doc in the first place was the fact that I'd been bleeding for 5 weeks straight (anywhere from spotting to very light flow). The doc took some bloodwork and found that I hadn't ovulated, so we started the Clomid right away to try and trick my body into resuming a normal cycle. I attribute the chemical to my body just not being in a good enough place. Since I DID get pregnant, I feel like we've found a medical regimen that works for us, and I'm optimistic that we'll have our sticky bean within the next couple cycles. It took 13 months to get pregnant with Drew, then 7 months to get pregnant with my miscarriage. The most disappointing aspect of TTC for me has been how long everything was taking -- it felt like I would never get my family. But this poor little chemical bean, if nothing else, at least gave me hope for the future. Fingers crossed for a better outcome next time.

I haven't really wanted to talk about any of it here, so I disappeared for a little bit. I'm back now though, and looking forward to seeing some other BFPs while I wait for it to be my turn again

If so I'll feel a little better about chatting it up here right away. I was just too shy this time I guess. Thank you both.

Aw, Erin, this SUCKS!!

You sound like you have an amazing attitude, though, and you might be right that your body just wasn't in prime condition after such a wacky cycle. I hope that your plan works again very, very soon. I'm ready to send you back to a DDC asap
