    Got back from vacation late last night and have been very busy today trying to get ready for work tomorrow. Here is my summary of last week. I tested on 12 DPO with a FRER and it was negative, I haven't tested since and my "missed period" should be today (16 DPO) . I go for my blood test tomorrow morning so we shall see. I just don't know what to think anymore. I want to be hopeful but it's hard to be optimistic month after month. I actually thought maybe this could be it because I didn't have sore breasts which I have had every TWW that I can remember with meds (normally it starts within 2-5 days of O) but lo and behold 13DPO!!!! I get sore breasts, so I just don't have a clue. It is what it is, I suppose.
    Me-24 DH-37 TTC 1st for 15 months. 3 rounds of Clomid all BFN's. Switched to RE. Doing Femara, Ovidrel, LP Progesterone this cycle. 2 Mature follicles! AF due August 18th. Blood test August 20th!

    Ugh! Well, good luck with the blood test! I'm hoping for you, even though things seem negative.

    Today's CD21 for me, so I go in this afternoon for BW. I know I O'd this cycle. I could feel it happening. Seems like a waste of time/money to go get pricked. Oh well.
    Me 23, DH 25, TTC 2 years,8 rounds Clomid, round four 7.5mg Femara this cycle, test 8/27

    Good luck with the b/w. It is hard to not read into any or all of the symptoms...I did the same thing this month. Good luck and let us know.

    I am on CD 4 and went in for my u/s to do IUI again this month. I start letrozole (femara) tonight and go back next tuesday for u/s, shot that night if everything looks good and then IUI on Aug. 30th. Here we go again!!!
    Me(36), DH(37), TTC 20 months,3 rounds clomid, 3 IUIs with HCG trigger/clomid all BFNs, now trying naturally

    Thanks everyone! The results are negative. They want to do a baseline u/s next cycle if that's what the RE recommends, if I don't hear back from them before I get AF I have to call and schedule the baseline. I figure we will do another round like the last two but I wonder if they will want to do more tests before hand. I will let everyone know what I find out.

    Maragayle, Glad to hear you O'd!! Good luck!

    ATT76, my hopes were absolutely crushed when the sore breasts started, I was so happy before hand but everything went down hill from there. I hope you have better luck!

    Awww sorry to hear that Mrs62610, i had so much hope for you! That's ok, God is in control of everything, He can do wonders i believe it!
    Thanks sproutkm, that's all we can do, pray and stay strong and positive. I will have my results maybe in 2 to 3 days, but i was referred to a fertility specialist, i have an appointment next month...Let's see how this goes. I'm waiting for AF on the 29 of august, hopefully it doesn't come, if it does i will take a one-month break from the Clomid since i will be seeing a fertility specialist.

    You are right, God is in control. I am working on trying to let things go and give it all to Him. Good luck with your results! I hope to hear good news! I took a break also between Clomid and me RE referral. It obviously wasn't successful but I did O and it was good for my stress level.
