Good luck!

Call me crazy but I think I want to POAS...
I'm on CD 25 and it's still too early esp if I O'd late. My boobs are killing me and I've been super exhausted the last few days.

Thanks. We just found out I don't ovulate because I'm underweight. I've tried everything to gain weight but it's just not possible I guess. They said my body thinks there's not enough nutrients to support a pregnancy so it's preventing me from getting pregnant :( I have blood work on CD 21 to see if the clomid is working.



Sounds like you've been through a lot! Good luck. I hope you get a bfp soon!!

What have you tried to do to gain weight?



It is risky for you and a baby if your underweight when you get pregnant.

You name it, I've done it. Shakes, weight gaining exercises, all kinds of food, ect...



It is risky, but I've carried 2 pregnancies successfully to term so it's not something my Dr is worried about if I do conceive. I have no problem gaining weight during a pregnancy, but as soon as the baby pops out, the weight goes right off. Right now I'm maintaining my weight of 102, which is actually very good for me compared to what I usually weigh. I think the prenatals I'm taking help with that.

Just make sure you keep up your folic acid intake. Best of luck!



Is your thyroid ok?

Yea. Everything is fine. They've done tons of tests, all say I'm healthy & everything is functioning properly, except for the ovulation thing obviously. So I'm just taking my prenatals every day hoping that will help :)
