@Lplafleur, good luck with your upcoming bloodwork and medical interventions! Regarding the multiples-with-Clomid stats...I read it as 1 in 10 women on Clomid end up with multiples, and 4 in 10 end up with singles. Regardless, just pray for multiples if that's your desire! God doesn't have to follow the statistics...he gives multiples to whomever he pleases.
@Jessicamary, it ain't over till it's over. But truthfully, I do the same thing...I write off my cycle LONG before my period shows. So I understand.
@Knitwit, yay...you're entering the two-week wait! I hope this is it for you. <3
@Rachel, what a frustrating wait! But you have good reason to be hopeful. I've read that lots of women don't get any symptoms in the first few weeks of pregnancy, and your missed period is the most hopeful sign a woman could ask for!
@Frangipani, your period is due soon, then! Any symptoms?
@Vedettessoir, I'm so sorry. Yes, buy the Wondfo tests. They are very cheap, and they give you SO much peace of mind. They increase your chances of conception by telling you exactly when to time sex. They make the two-week wait a bit easier because you'll know exactly what day (or two) to expect your period. I regret waiting as long as I did to use them.
@Vanessa, my libido always returns before my period too. But let's keep holding out hope for you. I've never been pregnant so I have no idea what my libido would do if I had conceived. Maybe it would still rise...who knows! Thank you for asking how I'm doing:
I'm 7 or 8 DPO, period is due next Wednesday or Thursday, and I'm at that same old point in the cycle where my hope crashes, perhaps prematurely. I get an occasional pinching feeling in my cervix at this point in my cycle, and I have no idea what causes it so I have no idea if it would occur regardless of a pregnancy or if its presence is a sign that my period is coming as scheduled. Does it mean that implantation has not and will not happen this cycle? Or does it start even before the blastocyst would be ready to implant? I have no idea. Also, my uterus is beginning to feel heavy. It's not cramps yet, but heavy. Does that mean that my period is coming or would it happen even if I conceived? I mean the uterus lining thickens, pregnancy or not, so maybe I am just feeling the effects of that. I don't know. But as of this minute, my cycle feels EXACTLY as it always does around 7-8 DPO, and that gives me the feeling that in a week's time I will be bleeding. Que sera, sera. I'm tempted to call and schedule a fertility consultation today just to get it on the calendar, but maybe I should wait until Friday or Monday. There's a good chance that implantation wouldn't even have happened yet, so I don't want to jump the gun. But also, let's be frank...I haven't conceived for 13 cycles, so something seems to be wrong.
Going to a fertility specialist is scary. Because the idea is for her to find the problem, and when she does, it will make me feel scared and hopeless. But if she doesn't find anything, it will make me confused and hopeless. I find myself really WANTING to go to one, but also really DREADING the prospect. I don't want to put it off any longer though.

This thread NEEDS some good news! We seem to be due for a few BFP, so for everyone waiting, maybe this month is the month!
Nothing new from me. If the random bleeding I had last week was my last BC "period" then I should be ovulating soon. I mean I hope I do, but I am not hopeful because BC really messed me up. I've been testing with the wondfo strips, and there's no positive yet, so we'll see what happens. I'm so upset with myself for getting on BC in the first place. I had the easiest most predictable cycle and I feel like I might have ruined that now. I know I am probably overreacting. I can hear my husband telling me to breathe and relax. *sigh*
Alzora- I think you might be a little like me. I HATE the idea of having to do something difficult that might result in bad news. I work myself up and come up with all the worst case scenarios. I find, though, in the end, that after I do it, it wasn't as bad as I built up in my head. Going to see someone is terrifying, but wouldn't it be better to know? In all likelihood there is nothing, but if there was something, I think it would be better to know. Make the appointment.Mi corazón Zoe MilenaLittle Nugget due December 2016

Wow, there are quite a few TWWers around. Wishing you all luck.
@Alzora - I know what you mean about wanting answers but dreading them at the same time. My guess is all of these first week symptoms would be the same whether or not you were pregnant, but then I've also never been pregnant so my opinion is not so valuable here. :-)
I got my Wondfo strips in the mail today. I'm really curious to open them up, but seeing as I'm at CD7 it would be a bit premature.Miriam ~ Tabitha ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Veronica ~ Sarah ~ EstherPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

@Alzora - The pinching feeling is probably your cervix lowering and tightening, which happens regardless of pregnancy or not. Likewise, you'd probably get some cramping at this stage anyway. I bet, when you do get pregnant, you have the exact same symptoms. Your body doesn't usually start responding to pregnancy (i.e. doing anything different) until after your period is due. I'd say it's simply too early for your body to know it's pregnant, so it's operating as per usual. So don't count yourself out yet! As for fertility specialists, I've found forming a plan of action gave me peace of mind. You may find something wrong that is easily fixable. They fix, you get pregnant next cycle. If you don't go, you won't know.
