Anna all I'd say about you thinking about having that tube tied is give yourself some time after the baby hun, just to be sure you know , I know it might seem tempting to get it done during your section so it's over with but your emotions are so up in the air while you're pregnant I think it's hard to make a decision then about something that will affect you forever
After my 5th I thought for quite a while I didn't want anymore but I still wasn't ready to be sterilised so my ex had a vasectomy and it's a good job I didn't get sterilised then as I changed my mind and had 2 more with my OH and in that split second she asked me about it with my last I felt then I would never be able to go through all that again which is the only reason I agreed to be sterilised but I regretted it straight away and 11 yrs on still do
The cons I had for the cannulation said she won't even do sterilisations during sections anymore as so many women regret them later
If a few months on you still want to do it then its only a day case procedure with a very short recovery xxx
Faith do you know why Mr Pickles said take the clomid from cd5 It just seems a little strange as most women taking it because of their age take it early, more like days 3-7
Just because that way it can help you make more mature eggs, whereas if you don't start until cd5 your body may have already chosen one egg to be the lead follicle so you'll only ever get one released that cycle. I know there's a debate over whether it helps with egg quality so going for 2-3 eggs so you've got a better chance of at least one fertilising seems a better option over going for one egg that may or may not be stronger for taking the clomid Just wondered if he had told you the reasons behind him wanting you to take it then ? Oh and the OPK's I wouldn't bother with until cd12-13, you might find you don't ov 5 days after the last does of clomid, many of the women taking clomid or soy on here found if they took it later like days 5-9 they ov'd later than usual, so if you don't get a pos by cd14-15 it's worth keeping going with them until you do Good Luck xx
Glad to hear it all went well Lisa xx

Evie hun hows it going ? Only popped on really to see how you were but I got side tracked Hope it's all going well so far xx
Thank you Lilemm Sounds like Harry is keeping you busy now xxx
Fantastic news Jellybean, glad all is well and fingers crossed you get lots of support and get your natural birth xx
Well I've been rushed off my feet I've got to cd 13 and I just had to count that on my fingers because I didn't just 'know' what day I was on which is a bloody miracle I'm still taking the Serrapeptase but more for the reason I originally ordered it some other stuff I'd ordered finally turned up around when my AF did but I have no real interest in taking it any more , I haven't had time to think about TTC, but I'm off now until Monday and will probably ov this weekend so I'm sure I'll have a little dabble But I'm not expecting anything and I'm sure I won't be disappointed
Have a great weekend ladies

I got up today feeling very emotional which us not like me unless it is the time of the month, and it is not. Anyway i am wondering if it is the reversal or something? Did this happen to any of you? If so i hope it goes away as fast as it appeared lol.

Dr P sent me my script only 25mg of clomid and told me day 5 as well? He didn't say why he just say day 5 start of period. We missed it this month so having a progesterone level check on day 21 then I will prepare for next month to start
Going to get DH SA done as well
Everybody else -Its very normal to feel emotional after a reversal I think it is all the tinkering that has happened inside on the powerhouse lol

I know what you mean Anna it takes it's toll but in the US where they tend to do even more sections than here there are women who've had six, seven or even more on the VBAC site there was a woman who had her first ever natural birth after 5 sections as well , they will still do the op later, as many women have it done about 6-8 weeks after a natural birth anyway, in fact they encourage them to wait so your internal organs like your womb and tubes can shrink back to their normal size as it actually makes the op more reliable
I know my sis had hers 6 weeks after her natural birth with her last and they wouldn't do it any sooner
Don't know why some docs still do it during sections, maybe it's just the NHS penny pinching But I found I had a lot more pain after mine during a section I don't know if that's normal What did you decide with the scan ? Hope it all went well if you had the private one . I don't think senna is ideal as it can over stimulate some peoples bowels which can then make your womb a bit twitchy, maybe just lots and lots of water and hard fruit might do the trick, prune juice does work as well normally but tastes [*@!#%*] and try changing brands if you're taking a vit with iron in as some bung you up and others make you go more xx
Ladycake, I think it is normal to feel more emotional and hormonal as not only are you suddenly dealing with all the emotions of TTC but your ovaries are also probably getting more blood than they were and that seems to perk them up no end I know I went from 8yrs of never noticing any ov signs and only knowing AF was coming because of PMT to suddenly becoming some crazy hormonal crying at nothing, symptom spotting nutcase xx

Evie getting twinges sounds promising As one of the IVF Ladies said even with just 2 or 3 eggs you could still get 'the one' that ends up being a sticky, so fingers crossed there were a couple hiding on your last scan that are big enough to count tomorrow, remember not all women on a natural cycle get to the same stage at the same time so even with the drugs it might just take you a few days longer to get those follicles going if you're paying then it should be your decision to carry on to the collection but I know some clinics don't like to do that with low numbers of follicles because of their stats , but in mini IVF or low dose IVF they only aim for one or two eggs anyway and still have pretty good results maybe because you actually make better quality eggs when there are less developing so they haven't had to 'share' the effects of the drugs if you like so even with one or two you could still have one or two to put back, but if you wanted to convert to IUI then they should offer you the option, I know its common in the US and women sometimes convert either way depending on their response It might seem a bit pointless but having the sperm put right up there next to (or in )the tube one the side you're about to ov from can make all the difference for some women Fingers crossed for a good scan tomorrow though xxx

Well I've ov'd
CD17 today and I did end up doing OPK's , wasn't planning on doing but they would just be calling me from the drawer if I don't use them up so I thought I might as well
On Saturday morning (cd14)I thought I might be going to ov late this month as nothing seemed to be happening and the OPK was almost blank but by Saturday afternoon I suddenly had ewcm and everything so I dragged the OH off for a 'nap' while the kids were out Sunday morning I had an almost pos OPK, Sunday afternoon it was super strong so we had another 'nap' and yesterday afternoon it was still pretty strong but not quite pos anymore, but I was bloated and had a headache and lots of left sided twinges which were very distracting when I was trying to concentrate in class so I thought I'd ov'd then but then this morning I was woken up by some real right sided burning pulling pains and my temp when I got up was right down at 98.2F so that fits more with ov this morning so I pestered the OH again
I'm wondering if this was a two egg month as I had such strong OPK's and with those ones on a normal month my lines are never that dark all the way across and they stayed dark for quite a while when normally they lighten up again quickly Anyway for what it's worth we did all we could and the timing couldn't be better if I did ov this morning
So we'll see, I suspect I know the outcome but I know I won't win the lottery and still buy a ticket
