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.

Mixed emotions

Today I have been feeling a mixture of emotions. I woke up happy, cheery, not a care in the world. And then the next minute I wanted to cry. This has been on & off all day, just when I read or come across something upsetting to me. Especially when I read one of my LTTTC virtual friends blogs. 


She was writing about the forum we are both on, more so the C&F forum. About how there are so many people TTC their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, in the time she’s been trying. About how she notices her other LTTTC friends kind of hide away wondering if they feel the same as she does. Well I want you to know, as I was reading it, it could have been me writing it. I feel exactly the same. Which is why I am rarely on there, probably 2 or 3 days a week, and then only to see if there is anything new to catch up on, or if I have any news to share. It’s just too depressing. If you ever read this I want you to know you aren’t the only one feeling that way, and I just want to send out to you a HUGE hug.

I catch up with most of my LTTTC’ers/’infertiles’ on Facebook anyway. But even that’s depressing in the same way sometimes.
