I don't like birth control!

I've been taking "the pill" for almost 2 weeks now. I don't like it at all! I feel icky all the time, I feel lethargic and depressed. Not too bad, but bad enough. I can do it for another month and a half. I have to! Marvin has been wonderful... He has asked me if I'd like a foot or back massage, he tells me how beautiful I am, and he makes me feel like a Princess! I told him to get ready for when I take Clomid. My sister, Renee, told me when she took it she was very emotional and had lots of hot flashes. Can't wait! (please note the sarcasm!) Luckily the round of Clomid is only for 5 days... I'll take that in the beginning of December. I'll let you know what things I go through. Should be funny! Oh the things some women have to go through to get pregnant... It'll all be worth it when we have a sweet little baby! =)

What the Doctor said.....

Hey everyone! I went to the OB/GYN on Tuesday to talk about, what is the next step??? So he told me my blood tests look great. And he has no problem starting me on clomid. First he wants me to be on birth control for 2 months, then as soon as my cycle starts on the 2nd month, STOP the pill and START clomid. He only wants to do the clomid for 3 to 4 months, after that he wants me to go to a specialist (that's if it doesn't work). You all might not know, but woman can only take clomid 6 times in their life. But he's hoping that it'll work in the first month. Birth Control, along with 2 months of exercise and good healthy eating with increase our chances to like 75% or more! Woo Hoo! The are some risks involved with Clomid. When taking it, it makes you ovulate. Sometimes you produce more then one egg. So there is a stronger chance of having twins. I can handle that! I'll take whatever I can get!!! Thank you for all your support and prayers! Keep them coming! =)
