Thanks for all of the great advice, I am going to try to go for the girl, we'll see. A friend of mine has been on some weird diet, etc. to increase her chances of a girl, but I think that is a little much...
Anyway, at my appt today the OB decided to put me on pregestrone first. What happened was I got AF two days ago, and then started spotting. He said I am having anovulatory cycles, so by taking the progestrone I force myself to ovulate and then I take the clomid to time the ovulation. So it's 7 days on progestrone, then 5-10 days waiting for AF, then on 4th day of cycle take clomid for 5 days, then estrogen for 5 days (helps make cervical fluid good for conception because clomid makes it not so good) and then another U/S on day 13 to see how many follicles I have. The idea is if there are too many follicles, we may not TTC so we lower chances of multiples, BUT since I am trying for a girl, we'll probably stopping BD'ing on day 12, as the Clomid causes ovulation on or around day 14, so I don't think the U/S will do anything but put my mind at ease (or not).
Anyway, so I am now looking at end of month/early next month to be around the time of ovulation, instead of in 10 days. So, I'll let you all know how it goes later.
