I’ve been MIA for a few days because I began my first cycle of Clomid and felt like this: Aside from dizziness, Clomid made kinda crazy. The first day I took it I found myself being really emotional and nostalgic. Like to where I made DH pull out our wedding video from 2003 because I had a sudden, inexplicable urge to watch it, immediately. Then I made DH slow dance with me. In the kitchen. While our dog looked at us like we were nuts. Then I just felt randy for a few days. And moody. Like, I’ll kill you for cutting me off in traffic type-moody, followed by “Let’s Make Love!” Tuesday, praise Jesus, was the last day and my farewell to Clo-mood this cycle (I hope). Tomorrow I will return to my home-away-from home (Dr. B’s office) for an u/s and blood work to make sure “the environment is lush” (his words). From there we go into IUI. Next week. The idea of possibly getting pregnant while DH is off working in a different town 20 miles away is so disconcerting. It seems like he always gets the easy jobs in our IF journey.
In the past two days that I’ve been off the Clomid my ovary has been absolutely on fire! Is this normal? I can only describe it as burning, hot, throbbing, dull, heavy, and stabbing all at once. I have no frame of reference for this, as this is my first Clomid cycle. I know I’m not ovulating yet because my OPK was negative this morning. Stay tuned.
Oh! And Happy Memorial Day, fellow TTC-ers!
