Clomid side effects...

In my last post I talked about the pressure down below. Well... in addition to the pressure, I have extreme fatigue. Especially yesterday and today. I fight to stay awake during the day. I don't want to give up and take a nap. I want to be tough! But I'm ready for bed at 7:00pm the last few nights. I try to keep busy so I won't notice my fatigue. All of this is worth it to help me get pregnant. I'll go through whatever I have to! Hopefully, I feel back to normal soon!

1st round of Clomid Treatment!

Well, I finished my first round of clomid treatment. It's only 5 little pills that help a woman to ovulate. I took the first one on November 25th. Up until yesterday I haven't felt any side effects. I thought I would react like Renee, my sister, did when she took it. She got very emotional and antsy, and had hot flashes.
Not me... I guess it's because I'm already very emotional and antsy. Yesterday and today, I felt a lot of pressure in my ovaries. Not a stabbing pain, but pressure. It's not too painful, just annoying. My sister-in-law Mandy said when she went through it she felt the same way. Good to know!
I've been keeping track of my temperature in the morning to see how my cycle progresses. I don't know if I'm doing it completely right. It's all over the place. You're not supposed to move or even talk before you take your temp. in the morning. Let's just face it... it's hard for me to stay still and not talk. I'm curious to see what the next month will look like.
Overall I'm very pleased with clomid... so far. We'll see how next month goes.

First Snow Fall December 1st, 2008

I took some video of the first snow fall in 2008 (to the best of my knowledge). It snowed all day! It's kind of fun, but the Florida girl in me missed the sunshine. Since then we haven't had any snow (unless it happened while we were sleeping.) But it has been super cold and icy. Thank goodness Marvin has been working from home. Enjoy the warmer weather there in Florida. I can't wait to come down for Christmas!
