This blog is intended to help me deal with the issues I am facing with IF(infertility). I release a lot of stress while writing. My hope is that others dealing with IF or trying to get pregnant will be able to read this as well and be able to relate or heck, make you feel better about yourself and your issues. Warning: This blog may contain strong language that may be not suitable for children and easily offended people. With that being said read at your own risk:) You've been warned!

I forgot I had a blog! It has been awhile since my last post. Quick update cycle 14 was a bust I got the bitch last Friday. I started Clomid on Sunday and took my last pill on Thursday night. I usually don't get the typical side effects from meds, however I got hit hard with s/e with Clomid. Some of them were : Intense hot flashes, mood swings ( was was a raging bitch one minute and an angel the next minute), and night sweats. I am a sweaty sleeper (I know its gross, but get over it ;) but this was unreal! Each week I go to a tanning salon and get spray tanned, well I basically sweated off my spray tan this week while sleeping! I woke up to what once was a white t shirt when I went to bed ended up being brown when I woke up! I also get hot flashes when I have a mood change or they just sneak up and bite me in the ass!
This also was the first week of school! Not a great week to start meds that mess with hormones! We picked up our Pregnyl from Kohll's today. I stared crying in the parking lot when I saw the inject needle. I keep telling myself " All for a baby". We have our first ultrasound appointment Tuesday so check the growth of the follies (follicles) and schedule or get an idea of when the insemination for IUI will take place. It is starting to get surreal.

I am getting a hot flash just sitting here typing.........

  2. I so know what you mean about the hot flashes... They are horrible! good luck with this cycle!
