I am on first round of clomid cd2 to cd6 .I am due my trigger shot in 2 days time ,fingers x all goes well ,question is should I use o tests ? should I bd the day before trigger also day of trigger and following day ? or would it be better to do nothing till day after trigger shot ? .should I then take it easy and put my feet up for next few days ? or just carry on as normal ? have no idea which way to go with all this .any ideas and help I would appreciate ladies .im not pinning my hopes on this all working ,I know my odds are slim ,so anything extra I can do to help my body along a bit would be good .
So are they monitoring you with u/s?
You can pretty much carry on like usual and be fine
I would use OPKs to make sure you don't surge before the trigger. but once you trigger your OPKs will turn + and are useless. Besides you will O 24-72 hours after the trigger so there is not point in taking them.
You can keep temping tho! Some women get funky temps from the trigger but I didn;t and I could see when I O'ed from my temps (later than I would have assumed actually).
I did my trigger Sunday night. I was told to BD Sunday and Tuesday. It ended up being early Sunday morning and late evening Tuesday. It worked for us....I am almost 18 weeks pregnant with twins.... I didn't do anything special afterwards, just went about life as normal. Oh, and I did not use Clomid, I used Follistim and then Ovidrel for my trigger.
One other thought...Clomid is infamous for causing issues with CM..not sure if this is an issue for your or not, but you might want to get some kind of sperm-friendly lube or something to boost your chances.
thank you ladies ,im still temping and will have a scan before the trigger on Monday evening ,im just stressing myself out a little over thinking it all , the clomid has turned me into the moody moo from hell !!! so I will ask for a change of meds when I see doc before my dh throttle's me !! I did a opk today which was neg so its looking good .the cm looks like its a problem this mth due to the clomid so will be using the friendly lube ,and congratulations juliemc im so glad it worked for you ,have a happy healthy pregnancy enjoy every moment
