new day

Thanks for the support yesterday. I think sometimes I minimize things (like saying its just IUI) as a way to protect myself. But you’re all right. I do need to recognize that what we’re doing is a big deal and allow myself to feel everything I’m feeling.

Two quick things. First, last cycle I didn’t have any side effects until day 3. Not anymore! Took my first pill at 8:30 last night and by midnight I was having night sweats. Totally sucks. I can handle the hot flashes (in fact its so cold at work I kind of want one) but those night flashes are going to be the death of me. I’m a bad sleeper lately anyway and waking up 3-4 times in a pool of sweat does not help matters. Ok, second thing. In the shower this morning I found stretch marks on my boobs! Which means I was not imagining those symptoms last cycle. But it still sucks…to get stretch marks when I can’t even get pregnant.

Going to to go the C.arbonleaf concert tonight (might need a powernap when I get home first). There’s a song on their most recent album, “Love, Loss, Hope, Repeat” that just sums up all this cycling crap. I hope they play it.

    If it helps, I’ve had stretch marks on my boobs since puberty!Yes, the hot flushes are not fun. Nor is the resulting ballet of duvet on, duvet off, duvet on…all night…J

    There are few thiings worse than insomnia or sleep disturbance. Ugh. C.arbonleaf is great. Have fun! I’m sure they’ll keep you awake πŸ˜‰

  9. Michell replied:

    The sweats with Clomid are the worst and almost only side effects I had but they were horrible. Of course I am always hot and so to have the sweats too was miserable. Sorry you are having to deal with this.

  10. KE II replied:

    Enjoy the concert, hope you get all your sweats out while you’re there and can sleep well when you get home πŸ™‚

  11. TeamWinks replied:

    Hope you had fun last night!

  12. chicklet replied:

    The nightsweats are awful. I got migraines on my third round to boot. Clomid is evil, the injections are much much better.

  13. MoonNStarMommy replied:

    Hope you hear the song you want to ((Hugs))

  14. Trish replied:

    Ugh. Yeah.. night sweats BLOW. I actually used to get them when on was on birth control. Of course, I didn’t realize at the time that they were hormone induced. So I had about a year of freedom, then started the meds and back to it. Damned hormones. I’m sorry about the stretch marks but you know.. I bet your boobs look great. πŸ˜‰
