Hello,
I am ttc #3....i have 2 boys and did not have any trouble concieving them!! We have been trying for a while now with no luck!! I am getting very discouraged!! I started using the Clear Blue Monitor last cycle. I am thinking about starting clomid next cycle!! I am taking prenatels, baby asprin and will be using preseed.

I am on cd7 and monitor showed 1st high today (started testing yesterday which was low) ...when and how often should i start BDing???

Many ppl will say that i have 2 healthy boys so i should be grateful....I am more then grateful for my boys i just don't feel done!! There is a baby out there waiting for me to be there mommy!!!

Any advice is so appreciated!!

How long is "awhile"? I poke my head in here every so often so I can offer my personal struggles, but it kinda depends on how long you've been TTC and what you've tried so far.

good luck with TTC. How long have you been trying? Are your cycles regular? Do you ovulate regularly, with a decent length LP? All those things are important to know before we can tell you more info.

yes..how long have you been trying? that is usually what a dr will ask too...it can take a normal healthy couple up to a year to try naturally before getting preggo..i know its tough and can be frustrating..but some people can get it right off with one kid and it just doesnt work with the other!!

aww..ya...drs usually will play with that...however i used soy it works like clomid and i used it on days 5-9 and it worked!! However i o normally on my own it just really strengthens your eggies..if you do it on days 3-7 it gives more eggies..thats all! Also usually after a year you usually see an RE...is there any reason they havent sent you to one? Well i sure hope you get that bfp soon! HUGS! hang in there!

I definitely suggest charting all your fertility signs for a few cycles to help get a clearer picture too. If you haven't read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler, I strongly suggest getting it and reading it. It is soo helpful in teaching you the basics of all your fertility signs and learning your basic fertile and infertile patterns.

As for the Clomid, I'd ask your doctor why they suggest days 5-9 vs. 3-7. I'd also make sure you ask for monitoring(at least bloodwork) with the clomid cycles so you can get a closer look at how your body is responding.
