Well ladies.. I think my fifth and last round of clomid was another bust. My period is due tomorrow and I got a BFN today. I'm not sure what the plan is after this.. I'm expecting AF tomorrow.. blah.. so sick of seeing those BFN's! I should just not test and wait for AF to show!

Sorry to hear! I test sparingly. From this point on I think I'm going to wait until CD35 before wasting tests. Let us know what's next!

Thanks! I will test again next week if AF doesn't show.. I haven't had my normal cramping or bbs hurting.. but it's probably just an off cycle.. I'm pretty sure AF will show up tomorrow. Oh well!

I wish I could be more like that with testing.. it's like a compulsion with me, it's so sad. I think I'm going to wait (try to) until next week if I don't get AF. Maybe my original date of Sunday because thats 14 DPO. AF always comes 12 DPO when I'm on clomid though so I'm expecting AF. My symptoms have been different this time, but it's just been a different cycle altogether.. I was hoping.. but oh well. I'm not sure if I should do the femara next month since I will be switching some other meds around to try and get rid of the infertilty.. hhhmmm.. dunno.. I will probably try naturally for awhile.

I'm keeping up hope. This round has felt different and I've charted all my DPO symptoms. AF shows like clockwork 12 DPO every time I've taken clomid. Yesterday was 12 DPO.. and nothing. All I'm having is right sided pains that feel like O, no AF cramping.... I'm trying not to get excited at this point. My mom yelled at me and told me to wait a week (shes had 8 kids) before testing again. I'm going to wait till Halloween if AF doesn't show. If AF doesn't show this weekend, I will pretty much know I am anyways because I KNOW I O'd.. I don't have PCOS, I've always O'd on clomid, I had a positive OPK, spotting and O pains. SO! We'll see! Pray for me!

Okay.. so of course.. I tested. BFN. 14 DPO. Needless to say, I am not doing well. I'm so confused and really sick of all this. This is my fifth round of clomid and I have ALWAYS.. every single time (except of course with the BFP) got AF 12 days later. LP are suppose to be constant (although I know they can at times vary slightly) But mine has been without fail of 12 DPO...AF shows up.. so now I'm on 14 DPO with absolutely no sign of AF and a BFN. I've read on sites about people not getting their BFP's until like 17 or 18 DPO.. but I'm not trying to hope that is me. I KNOW I O'd.. I had O pains, CM, positive OPK and spotting to top it off. SO WHERE IS AF??? I've been having slight cramps today.. but nothing like AF. I've been crying, etc because I was so sure when I tested I would see a BFP. What do I do? I'm going into town tomorrow.. should I just have them draw a HCG lab on me to be sure? I talked with my mom.. who is my best friend.. it's just frustrating because she really doesn't get it.. popped out 8 babies in 16 years without even trying.... sigh.. Please, someone, give me some advice.. at a real low point here because I'm so sick of this journey.. the BFN's.. and I'm just confused. I don't know what to do. Why would AF just not show? I don't have PCOS.. and I know I O'd... ???

I totally understand wat u must be going thru !! It is a good sign that AF hasn't shown up yet..i suggest u not to test atleast for another week..coz it is disheartening to see those BFN's everytime..in the meantime may be u should call ur doc/nurse and find out if u need the blood test for HCG..and since u r saying that u r sure that u O'd..thr is definitely still hope!! Hang in there..will pray for u..good luck!!

Thanks DJ.. I appreciate it. I've calmed down lol, sorry about the rant. I am so horrible about testing, I test too much. I am seriously, seriously, just going to try and be patient. I am out of pregnancy tests (haha of course) except I do have some really cheap ones.. but my family told me to calm down (yes!) and wait awhile. It's just so hard to be patient when you've been wanting something for so long! I've been TTC for 15 months but wanting another baby (badly) for 3 years now. I think I'm even going to hold off calling about HCG..because if it's negative, I hate hearing it from someone else. I did O I know.. and AF is late.. so I know there is still hope.. I was just being a little nutty. haha. Thanks for the reassurance.
