    Default 2nd Round Clomid Success?

    Any one here who has had success on round two?! I could really use some positive stories... My attitude lately pretty much stinks and I need a pick-me-up!

    You would think that the 2ww would get easier, but it seems to get harder with each cycle... You start to question whether or not there is more wrong than "just" the PCOS...

    Okay, enough venting...

    I had some luck on my second round. First round was 50mg and I didn't ovulate. I really had high hopes that round so after it was a bust I took a little break. The second round was at 100mg. Since I got burned by the first round then I didn't have high hopes for this one. I had even scheduled an appt with an RE during that time. Well the second round worked! Got my bfp in February. Having a boy that is due in October.

    Clomid doesn't work for everyone but there are a lot of people it can help. Good luck!!

    I did - with my DD.

    The first round at 50mg didn't do anything so we upped it to 100mg for the second round and got a BFP!

    I ovulated first and second rounds (50mg), but no bfp.. *sigh* DESPITE perfect timing.
    It's pretty disheartening so I know where you're coming from, but hopefully someone else can give you some positive stories.

    Thanks ladies! I was ovulating on my own without the clomid, just really really late in my cycle, so the doc put me on clomid to make me ovulate earlier... I ovulated the first cycle to no avail. I really really hope this is our cycle!

    Babyb I will probably test on the 30th of July...maybe Aug 1 if AF hasn't come by then. What about you?

    I am debating... I really prefer not to test at all, but depending on if it feels like AF is on her way, I may break down and test on the 26th! I don't want to test earlier, because our anniversary is on the 25th and if it's a BFN, I don't want to ruin the day!

    I know exactly how you feel. I too sort of don't want to test. I hate seeing the big negative so I think I will wait for AF. Last month I had convinced myself I was so pregnant that I actually didn't believe the pregnancy test and had blood drawn and then even when the blood was drawn and it was negative I was still trying to find a reason to think I was still pregnant. It was pretty pitiful and I don't want to go through all of that again...so I think I will test only if I don't get AF. I know when I O'd this month so I should be able to gauge it but last month I didn't know when I O'd. Good luck to you and I hope we get our BFP's this time!
