And another one bites the dust…

Yep, another pregnancy announcement. I had a really funny feeling the person was though, so it wasn’t SO much of a shock, but still. I am trying to be happy, well, I am happy for them, but I just wish it was my turn already. 


I’ve lost count of how many people have announced pregnancies in the 26 months we’ve been trying, I don’t really want to count though, it’s just too depressing. I was feeling quite chirpy today, but now I’ve kind of gone downhill again, a little. So glad I’ve exercised already otherwise I just know I wouldn’t want to. The slightest little thing like this just makes me want to sit on the sofa and cry and feel sorry for myself, it is so so hard to pick yourself up again and carry on, but I’m trying, I really am. Now just excuse me while I go away and cry…


(I did say congratulations though, that’s a big step for me if you have read my previous blogs…)

CD2, clomid round 1, day 1

So after AF messing me about and not knowing whether it was the witch visiting or just spotting for days on end, I got a definite confirmation of her visit yesterday! Took me by surprise as usual! 


Patiently awaited CD2, and have taken my first tablet of clomid 50mg round 1 this evening! Waiting for any side effects to kick in, will report back later if I get any! Usually I’m lucky with side effects but we will see!


Mainly mood swings tonight, no other side effects really. 

Please can I start my clomid yet??…

Right now I am awaiting my first ‘proper’ CD1 of AF, so that I can begin taking my 1st round of clomid on CD2. Recently I have had sore (.)(.), so I guessed that was a sign AF was on its way. Although a lot earlier than it should be according to fertility friend, but hey, I’m not complaining! One of the few times I’ve ever actually wished for the witch to hurry up and grace me with her presence! 


Well yesterday when I woke up and ventured to the loo, I thought she had arrived. Well, it seemed like AF at first, but throughout the day there was hardly anything else, so just spotting I guess. (Although I do usually get a couple of days spotting before proper AF) So I’m doing the checking thing again today, although so far it’s just turning out like yesterday! Believe me, I will definitely know when it’s the first proper day as it’s horrendous! 


Although I’m not looking forward to the mood swings and other symptoms I’ve heard about, I just want to take that first tablet! Fingers crossed it’s soon!

Infertility Month

I came across this on another blog I am following. I don’t know if it is actually Infertility Month or not, but I think the message is clear enough anyway.


Infertility is a heart-wrenching, faith-questioning, relationship-testing, life-altering experience. April is Infertility Awareness Month. Whether a friend, a family member, a colleague or yourself has fought through this difficult fate that MILLIONS of women are fighting day in and day out. Post this as your status if you or someone you know has struggled at a chance to be a parent.
