No need to test this month.......

I saw the dreaded pre-period spotting yesterday. Which usually means I'll start in 1-2 days. It sucks for many reasons....
1.) I'm not pg
2.) Last cycle was 26 days, this cycle will be 24-25 days--it's never consistent
3.) I have to spend $30 on an ovulation kit and start charting
4.) And...it just plain sucks!!!!!![:(]

I just sat down and cried last night. This is only our first month of "real trying"-although I have been off the pill for over a year now--but it is still disappointing. I'm not really sure what's going on with my cycles and I'm really afraid I'll have to take Clomid again. Dh is terrified of having a mulitiple birth. (We only had one last time-but per ultrasound, I released 3-4 eggs!!!!)
I know several people who conceived twins on Clomid. He was so terrified that at first he told me he didn't want me to take Clomid again this time TTC. I told him it may be our only way and to just chill out!!! He backed down after a few days and said he would just take a "wait and see aprroach"
Doc wanted me to TTC for about 4 months before going back to see him b/c he says that what the "average" couple takes to get pg. But, if I can show him with my charting and ovulation kit results this cycle or maybe one more cycle that I'm not ovulating, maybe he'll go ahead and put me on Clomid. We'll see.
Thanks for listening. I'll be spending the morning sulking--it's rainy outside today anyway[:(]

Renee,
I'm so sorry that af showed her ugly face to you. I became the mad tester each and every month even while on Clomid. I stressed and obsessed with getting preg that BDing was no longer fun and was a chore. Sex this day but not this day, it would just drive my DH crazy!...

I did have to go back on clomid and I do release 3-4 good size follicies but have been blessed each time to having singles. I do know clomid and produce twins, triplets but it's not always the case...

Here's a huge hug for you and have a candy bar on me...

I'm sorry AF is ruining your week, Renee! She showed up here on Wednesday.[:(] Tell DH I said he should take you out for a nice dinner; it's the least he can do.

Renee-
I'm so sorry it didn't happen this month. Don't give up hope! I'll be sending prayers, positive thoughts and some baby dust your way for next month.
