yes, you have to try to not let it drag you down....or at least all the way down, as it's okay to be down sometimes.
i am also on the 2ww after round 2 of clomid. we have been trying for over three years, and have had 2 rounds of iui. i get very down sometimes, and my hubby is very good about it too. i know it's hard when people say to stop thinking about it so much, but that's impossible when you have to temp every morning, track symptoms, test and have regular dr's visits.
it's hard, i know. but - regretfully another cliche - think of the benefits! i am kind of, though fearfully, hoping for twins.....being just short of 36, it would work nicely to get a nice little family in one shot.

i've heard twins are common because clomid forces ovulation, ideally....though i cannot claim to know the science of it. i like putting it that way, "2 for 1"!

the only thing i know about clomid is that it stimulates/hyperstimulates the ovaries to produce follicles when they have not been previously - or stimulates production of more than one in cases where ovulation already happens. they do this for iui/ivf to try to up the chances of success.
there are twins, i think, on my mother's side from both of her parents, and the hubby has twin uncles on his father's side....so i guess out chances are likely higher than some. so, again, here's to hoping!

Hi Saz, it's my 2nd month. The first month I didn't ovulate, that's why they've increased me to 100mg Clomid for the 2nd cycle. I've had a scan to check I was about to ovulate, and it was looking promising, although how the heck they can tell what's going on I have no clue - it's all just blurry images to me! My doc measured the follicle and it was 14mm, and they need to get to 18mm apparently. She said it was a very good sign, so fingers firmly crossed we caught it when it released the egg! In the middle of my 2 week wait now. I love what you said about twins being mother natures way of saying you've waited long enough I'm giving you 2. I feel like I've taken enough of mother nature in the past with hideous pain, it's about time she did something nice for me good luck with your Clomid, keep us posted on how it's going. xxxx

Its been great to read all of your stories. I have also never signed up to a website/chat site etc but this ttc journey has been an emotional one. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year. We have had 6 rounds of IUI and this is our second month on Clomid at 100 mg. IUI was done this morning and now we are on the 2 week wait. I am more anxious this time around because if it does not work this time they want me to look at IVF. So hoping for our BFP in two weeks! I never had any side effects with this clomid but I also had a horrendous period the first month. I look forward to hearing more success stories! Hoping I am one of them!
