Clomid cycle 2 update, and other stuff (small TMI alert)

Realised I haven’t updated for a while, well since before I started clomid round 2, so here goes…


Well AF actually appeared ‘properly’ the day after my last blog post, so that helped! Roll on CD2 and I started on my 100mg, well I was pretty normal (well as normal as my periods can be) for that day, but the next two days were absolutely horrendous. AF was so heavy and I had stomach ache throughout, it was that bad I had to go and ‘change’ every couple of hours, just yuck. I haven’t had a period like that for years, forgot how bad my bad periods actually were. But, I suppose that means the higher dose was actually doing something as I never had it that bad last round, in fact it was much lighter than normal. Didn’t really have many other side effects, mainly constant headaches like last time around, and mood swings and a little emotional. 


Today is CD15, so I guess am on the TWW, although if it’s anything to go by my last cycle of 54 days, I don’t know… 


Anyway, that’s that, now for other stuff. Been finding the whole thing a bit difficult lately. Everyone either seems to be having babies or announcing pregnancies again, it’s just like they all come at once. The thing that really pushed me over the edge was yesterday. One of my close friends posted a status on Facebook referring to the whole TTC thing, and anyway we got to the point where I said seeing pics of scans and bumps etc. really upset me, and a mutual friend (who just happens to be pregnant) said along the lines of ‘well delete everyone who does that, it would be the easiest thing’. I said if I did that half my friends would be gone! So bearing in mind she knew how I felt right then, an hour later she had posted a pic of her expanding bump! That just really got to me, like she was rubbing it in. She probably wasn’t, but anyone who suffers IF will know that we can be incredibly sensitive and just wish people would think sometimes. 


Well right before that, another friend posted a photo of her newborn girl who is incredibly gorgeous. Surprisingly though this didn’t upset me too much as she is one of the nicest people I know and I couldn’t think of a better person for it to happen to, she has always been sensitive towards me and there when I needed a chat. I posted a status not long after these two events simply saying *sigh*, and unfortunately this friend thought it was about her when it really wasn’t, so if you are reading this then I hope you understand. 


Also something that one of my best friends said to me not long ago has been playing on my mind. We were discussing about people posting the pics and she said she doesn’t mind the scan pics but when I do get pregnant (I’m more thinking ‘if’) that I am not to post bump pics (which I am not going to do anyway, as I know just how heartbreaking it is. I will be posting on here for anyone that wants to see, then those who don’t, don’t have to look) because it is like the person saying ‘Look what I can do and you can’t’ – and in a way, playing over and over in my head, I suppose it is. And then another friend posted a photo of her expanding bump tonight. I usually ‘like’ these from this friend but I just had to navigate away from the page, I was immediately in tears. I just want it to be me.


I just think I need a break from the whole Facebook thing. It’s just all getting too much for me again and I’m in tears every day, and I just don’t want to be.

  1. I'm sorry sweetie! I hope it gets better. I had my horrific time a few weeks ago. Sometimes everything gets to you & everything makes you cry. Shoot, I was watching the ACM awards & Miranda Lambert won for "house that built me" which is my ALL TIME FAVORITE song, I'm obsessed with it. Anyways, it won for best song & the guy (director, writer, someone) said "& those kids of there who haven't found a home yet I pray you find a house that builds you" & BAM, tears! I hope things are little less hard this next week.

  2. Getting off facebook? Easier said than done hun. This is one of the reasons I will not announce pregnancy on facebook, -if- it ever happens. When the baby is born, I will only post one single picture with the name of the baby, and that's about it. The reason I am going to do this is a) some people are very fragile when they have not been so lucky so far with their ttc, and b) I consider the first moments / days of my life / my baby's life very very personal.

    hugs
