My husband and I are TTC our second child and we have been trying for over a year to have another baby. When we decided to have a baby I got off the pill the beginning of May 2007 and was pregnant by the end of May so now that it is not happening that quick this time around is very stressful. I am currently on my second month of Clomid last month didn't work due to the else Ifact that during my ovulation time all three of us ended up with the stomach flew so that made baby making inpossible. But now Im on my second month of Clomid I have had a possitive Ovulation test and and we are do whatever my dr. said to do. Baby make every other day. I hopeful and I am trying not to get streesed out. I don't know what my chances are that this will work this time around . Is there anything else I can do to up my chances of getting pregnant?

I know what you feel. I've been there. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19 years old. My husband and I was TTC for almost 2 and a half years with no luck. After continuing to try without any success, we began clomid treatments. The Clomid making me sick to my stomach. After 4 rounds, we did not get pregnant. And then I started following the Getting Pregnant Plan book because the clomid and the other fertility drugs didn't worked on me. After 3 months following the book I can't believe that I got positive result. I'm PREGNANT! We are more than our physical bodies, treating yourself holistically by following the Getting Pregnant Plan from http://aboutgettingpregnant.com is going to greatly improve your chances of healing and conceiving, so you can move toward a successful, healthy pregnancy.

Yay, congrats to you. I wish I could say the same. I am out one tube, so now I about to move onto IUI with clomid and hope that works. My poor little one keeps asking us to have a baby. Enjoy your pregnancy and remember what a blessing it is.

I have great news I had a positive pregnancy test on Sunday and got it confirmed yesterday threw a blood test after trying for over a year and a half. I thought I was never going to have a chance to have another baby and here I am. Expecting baby #2 Im only about 4 weeks along. Good luck it can happen to you to.

I have been on clomid and seeing my OB that took care of my prenatel visit and the birth of my daughter and she has not checked my hubby... She wants to do IUI on top of the clomid which gives me like a 80% chance of concieving. I hoping that it doesn't have to happen that way. I went in and they said that I have a blocked tube clear at the very end of my tube. My dr isn't worried about it and doesn't want to do anything about it.. She even thinks that I it was like that before I got pregnant with my daughter but we got pregnant the same month we started trying so Im having a hard time believing that. But who knows.

I have not had any problems the first month I had bad pains during ovulation but that was a one time thing. I have had a little mood swings but at the same time I have always been that way. I would just take it for one month and see what happens and if things don't work out let your dr. know and maybe they can do something different. I hope it all works out for you. I wish you luck

I agree that I would not mind multiples either. We lost a set of twins a few years past. Has your doctor checked your hubby? About every 6 months my hubby has to be checked to see his count. We are a little bit of both the problem. He has a slightly low motility and I have issues with LH surge. I also have a misplaced left ovary. I really recommend to see at least an OB if not a fertility specialist. They can figure it out. You might have PCOS and not know it. I have no external signs of PCOS and the blood work doesn't show it, but one look at my ovary's showed it. They focus on the whole process. When you take clomid with a PCM they don't watch closely and can miss something. For me it was discovered low doses of clomid kills my estrogen levels. Wishing you luck, we are still trying. I am hopeful this month because everything looked good and I have been nauseous for a couple days now.

There is a hormone swing. I see it in my family members more than myself. I think the hardest thing is being patient. Just pray for patience and hopefully you have a good doc helping you. It can put you at greater odds of multiples, but if watched carefully those chances can be minimized. I have an US before I start it, then about day 10 or 11 and sometimes a few more days later to see how it is developing and to warn me of the risks of going forward.

It's a stressful thing. I went through 4 rounds of clomid and nothing. so had a HSG and they cleared my tubes. Then started a new round of clomid. Turns out the clomid is thinning my walls so have to take estradol. Also I am having to get monthly HCG shots since my LH surge was undetectable. I am so frustrated it is taking so long this time around. Hopefully this month it worked.

Pretty sure that's normal. FAM method of BC tells you to watch for those physical cues of ovulation.
