On Anovulatory Cycles & Puppy Teething

I wish I had something positive to write about in terms of where we're at in the TTC-journey. It's CD22 and I'm still nowhere near ovulating (if I do at all) so despite using the OPK sticks & the Fertility Monitor regularly, things aren't working. This is with Clomid, too. Seriously - I must be the most unresponsive ovulator on the planet.

The main decision I have to make over the next week or so is when to bite the bullet & start taking Provera to bring on a period. I want this cycle over, which makes me think I should start taking it tomorrow. But at the same time, what if I'm just a couple of days away from potentially ovulating late? Super faint OPK's mean nothing in the grand scheme of things... but do I give it more time and see? I'm so over this. At least with IVF you have a good idea of your time-frames. I don't know.

In the meantime, how about a token puppy picture? Spencer has grown so much in a week - his stubby legs are starting to get bigger, he's eating more, and he's full of energy. He's also discovering that chewing & digging are FUN FUN FUN past times. (Not so fun for us!)

We've worked on a few little training commands - mostly getting him to know his name, to come and to sit. Staying is next on the horizon. He's such a goofball. Oscar & Evie are getting braver, though Oscar has smacked the puppy a few times for coming too close too quickly. They'll get there!

How long do you usually wait before starting provera? I was on clomid for a year before I started using ovulation tests - I can't believe I waited that long!! It made me realize that my cycle was wayyy different than the doctor's guidance (you'll ovulate between days 9-19). The earliest I ovulate on clomid is day 22 and the latest so far (this month) has been day 30. Maybe you're similar?

Omg! Spencer is sooo cute. I hope you just ovulate late. Maybe tomorrow?

Spencer is quite adorable and I'm sure he keeps you on your toes! I have no words of wisdom on your cycle other than I keep hoping to see a post where you going to be a mom to a non-fur baby.

I know you don't respond well to Clomid, but I ovulated on Clomid as late as CD29 with no signs of ovulation until CD27 or CD28, so I say give it another week!

Funny, we are so opposite! I have the exact opposite problem, my body gets overstimulated super fast! I LOVE the pics of Spencer, please keep posting them! It makes me think of my Sage when she was that little. They grow up so fast, pick him up and squeeze him as much as you can now :)

I'm so sorry your not ovulating this cycle! I haven't been there, but I am frustrated for you... On the flip side, I am so jealous of Spencer!! So cute. What a great distraction :)
