Rowan. I have placenta previa right now and will only be allowed to attempt a vaginal delivery if the placenta moves 2.5cm from the cervical opening. If I was in Australia it would only have to move 1.7cm from the cervical opening to attempt vaginal delivery. I assume the reason is that a C Section is expensive and my American hospital makes more money if I have a C section than if I have a vaginal delivery. If the government paid for the procedure (like how it works in almost every other western industrialized nation) it would be in their best financial interest to avoid an unnecessary cesarean. We have really nice health insurance right now, but unless my placenta moves past 2.5cm my money won't be able to buy a vaginal hospital delivery because hospitals are just too greedy. Sometimes my husband and I look at good paying jobs in other countries and think about how much it would suck to be an immigrant, but how nice it would be to have universal healthcare/dental care.
Fox News has convinced the elderly that Obama is going to have a Death Panel killing all the old people. That is one of the major things holding our country back in terms of healthcare. Hopefully the younger generation won't fall prey to fear and lies so that someday everyone will be able to see a doctor when they're sick - not just rich people.

Thanks everyone for the support! I know it was the just the first round of Clomid and from what I hear it takes more than one usually... I guess I'll just keep on going like I have been and hope a higher dosage helps things.
Whit - You might be able to help me with this... I'm on cycle day 27 right now, how long do I have to wait before I start up Provera to induce my next period. For this past cycle, I have a natural period to start. But I don't want to wait 40 days haha. I will of course take a pregnancy test beforehand to double check, but I'm not sure what day I should wait until. Thanks!TTC #1

I would wait till 14-18 days after the positive OPK you had. That way you have plenty of time to check a HPT or just get your period the natural way. I had to take provera often because I never got my period. My doc always just had me take a pregnancy test before I started the provera. It's annoying and slow, but such is life with PCOS :-P On my weird cycle I mentioned before, it had been a couple months since my last period, and they thought I could be ovulating so I did the blood test. When it came back too low, they had me go ahead and start the provera that day. I hope your cycle works on its own and you can skip the provera! Good luck!Wife to Jordan.

Thanks Whit! I will probably use the Provera this month, because sometimes my cycle has gotten up to 60 days. It's never less than 40 nowadays, and I'm impatient to get going again.
Btw your weird cycle story is just crazy! Just goes to show that you can never be 100% sure when you're told something!TTC #1

@ nowakasia and daisychain, sorry to hear about your medical results. Hopefully next month is more positive for you both!
@ whitegold, I kind of work on the basis that if I don't get pregnant this month I can carry on enjoying my non-pregnant activities for that much longer. It's not a huge thing, but it does make me feel a bit better.
@ sarahmezz, yup, I'm trying to brace myself for that possibility! I know there's pretty much an equal chance of conceiving every month, but it just seems so unlikely somehow to get pregnant the first month.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014
