Failed first round of Clomid

Hi everyone

BFN this morning 😞 It was only our first cycle on Clomid but always hard not to get your hopes up, and we have been trying for such a long time now, the disappointment each month never gets easier.

Just wanted to send love to everyone else going through this rollercoaster of a journey... Feeling really down this morning but know I’ll pick myself up and keep trying because that’s what we do and it will all be worth it in the end 😃

Thanks so much. It’s really nice to hear from people who understand. I’ve lost count of the number of pregnancy tests I’ve done now but always feel so anxious and then so disappointed. Keep telling myself to try to switch off from thinking about the whole TTC thing so much but it’s so hard as am taking some sort of meds every day plus there always seems to be someone else with happy news about being pregnant... As we are lucky enough to have a son who is about to turn three I know that people are always expecting us to announce we are pregnant and that only makes things harder. Anyway, sorry for the essay. I find the bit right after the negative test the very hardest, once I can start on the Clomid again at least it feels like a step in the right direction. I’m glad to hear that Clomid worked for your cousin, always good to hear success stories 😃

How’s your 2ww going?! X

No need to apologise. It’s a very difficult journey with lots of highs and lows.

If you find a way to switch off from it can you let know how 😆😂😂

It took us 5 years and 10 months of TTC to find the cause ; I have endometriosis found and treated last year. We did manage to conceive straight after my first laparoscopy but I lost the baby at 4.5 weeks 💔 and the endometriosis re grew which affected my fertility so couldn’t manage conceive again. 🤦🏽‍♀️ but thanks my supportive fertility specialist I had my 2nd laparoscopy in March which again treated my endometriosis but left some on my bowels so got referred by my fertility specialist to an endometriosis specialist he knows! Saw the endo specialist last month and agreed to another laparoscopy but it’s a 5/7 month waiting list 🙈 so I’ve decided to TTC again as I can’t put my trying on hold that long! And it’s only on my bowels now ; they removed it from the area which affects fertility. They said if I conceived and had a baby they’d do the surgery after I have a baby. It’s nothing to lose! 😏

I’m so tired , bloated and breasts are painful and I’m desperately trying not to google promised myself I wouldn’t! 😆 it is the longest 2 weeks that is for sure; I’m only on day 5 🙈 at least I get sone distraction at work next week 😂

Pregnancy announcements are difficult and I dread them!

I have a grown up son but really want a baby with my hubby 😍 secondary infertility isn’t much easier is it. Everyone acts like because I have a son somehow it’s easier 🙄 I just don’t really talk about much. Sometimes I’ve had people ask us the dreaded “when are you having a baby” these days I’m honest I say we can’t have children that shuts them up nicely 😏and makes them feel as embarrassed as I do when they ask 🤪it’s so rude and not their business 😡 I have zero tolerance with it!

I give myself a day to be upset by period/neg test then crack on 😊 you’re right you just have to. We are bloody strong ladies here 😘 Here’s to your next month 🎉🎊🌈💝xoxo
