Day 6 – 1st cycle on Clomid

So I guess it is going well. I haven’t really had side effects thus far, well not really bad ones… okay, okay I cried in the middle of a restaurant.

Before you say anything it was not over spilled milk okay 🙂

They had the smooth grooves cable channel on at the restaurant we were in and this song came on I have always liked, but never seen the film clip too, it is called “Say Something” and is performed by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera. It is a hauntingly beautiful song which on its own is quite sad, but then it turns out that the film clip is even more heart wrenching.

So when you get to the old man with his wife on the bed… all of a sudden I had silent tears streaming down my cheeks. Hubby freaked out because I am not a crier and was all, “Oh my god, are you okay? What is wrong? Did you cut yourself?” and I am all, “It’s just so beautiful and sad”. T’s like, “umm okay, what can I do to help you? What do you want to do?” and I just asked him to hand me a napkin. He did and said, “how about we order you Brownie?” hahaha ahh he’s a lovely man. He is so done in if we end up with a girl 🙂

Other than that I have found myself really impatient with stupidity this week, but to be honest I think that is more a symptom of AF than the Clomid. I have had some discomfit in my pelvic region today which is weird, kinda crampy and all. Who knows what that is? Could be digestion for all I know hahaha.

Fingers crossed this works

    That song is so beautiful and sad!! And I love your husband’s suggestion to help, a brownie seems like the best idea ever!

  • thebarrenlibrarian

    That song makes me cry in an unpregnant state, so those tears are legit!

    Glad you got the brownie 🙂

  • yearningformotherhood

    Hormones aside, this marks the start of a new journey for you which will hopefully give u and mini-librarian! I would be crying, too!
    Good luck x

    I’m on my first course of clomid as well. I’m glad it’s going well for you. Gives me hope that I won’t have any problems with the medication.

      Yay, nice to meet a Clomid buddy. This is the wonderful thing about blogging, I have no one in my life at the moment going through this, but through WordPress I have discovered so many wonderful women who are going through what I am. And these ladies are pros, there is such a huge amount of knowledge between all of us it is amazing 🙂 I hope you stop by again 🙂

    I just found your blog! I too am on Clomid. The side effects can sometimes get stronger as the cycle goes on (just a warning). I’m on my sixth try at clomid. Just started back this week after a treatment break. Best of luck to us both! 🙂

    • DitchTheBun

      Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog 🙂
      I am glad you said that because I didn’t realise that the side effects continued after you finished taking it and have been freaking out at the fact I am easily annoyed and sometimes just want to be left alone hahaha. Now I know why 🙂
      This is my first go at Clomid, do your ovaries ache? I know that probably sounds so weird but I am getting aches low in my abdomen around where my ovaries are.
      6 rounds, wow, you are a pro by now. Are you on the highest mgs now?
      Fingers crossed this works out perfect for us both. 🙂

    Yes, the side effects continue on and they also compound from month to month. I started my first month at 50mg, the following cycles at 100mg, and by the fifth I was at 150mg. So the previous months linger in your system a little while making you a total nutcase by the end of it. My biggest advice is a Coke for the migraines, dress in layers for the hot flashes, and remind your husband that you aren’t really YOU on certain days and you can’t control it! I always remind him at the start of the month, “There may be an argument or two and I am going to need you to walk through it apologetically be I don’t have any brains.”

    I never really had painful sides but I could feel the pain of ovulation (which was new/different). There is such a thing as ovarian hyperstimulation where your ovaries swell and become unbearably painful (thankfully Ive avoided that train ride).

    I hope all this information helps. I have to go back and re-read some of my older entries because this is our first “try again” after our treatment break.

    • DitchTheBun

      Oh no, I don’t like the sound of the compound effect. That is only good when you are earning interest!
      Hopefully I don’t drive my Hubby too mad. He has been working a lot so he has missed the worst of it, I have been pretty good at walking away when I feel something rising. Unfortunately that means I have been ostracising myself a bit.
      Thanks heaps for your advice, great help 🙂
