Default 1st time w/clomid CD25

Hi everyone, I've been out for a while. So this is my, uh, I think 6th IUI, 2nd time w/ new donor, and 1st time w/clomid. I seem to have very normal cycles, but a polycystic ovary, so Doc is covering all the bases.
First month in a LONG time that my bb's didn't hurt from ovulation until AF. So I wonder if hormones were out of wack. Had a prog test and that was fine...
But today and yesterday i've started feeling crampy, so I might be out of the running. I've decided NOT to POAS this time. Last two times AF showed up the day I tested (ugh).
I'm so frustrated still. Nothing seems to be wrong. Doctor still has high hopes for me. And here I'm already counting months until I give up or start talking about adoption. DH is getting really restless too.
I've been seeing so many BFP's, so hopefully I'll get some luck over here!

PS any thing you guys noticed different after being on clomid, as far as length of cycle, how long it lasted, AF symptoms (moody?) Just wondering...

I usually get OPK positive on the 11-13 day. I've been going in on day 12 since my US. Usually my cycle length is about 26-28 days. I was thinking that maybe I'd go a little longer with clomid. After I went off the pill, my cycle was 35 days for a couple months! 27 days seems short to me, but I guess norm.
I'm going crazy here. I really hope this works!
Kelli-just curious, why did your doc prescribe clomid for you? are you doing DI?

no- he prescribed the clomid to help with ensuring egg production and hoping for better quality eggs.... dh's swimmers are in good working order
 
it's my eggs that seem to have the issue... i've had 3 m/c (and a chemical pg) in a year
 
so we're hoping for a good egg this round!

we did the IUI bc one of the side effects of clomid can be 'hostile mucus' isn't that the funniest thing you ever heard? so I had 2 good follies-- but when they checked my mucus on day 12-- there were no little swimmers-- my mucus was giving them a hard time apparantly! So we scheduled the IUI-- I got a pos OPK on day 15- had the IUI on day 16- my cycle is usually 28-29 days...
