optimism

What’s better than a girl with a plan?? A girl with a plan she likes!

Assuming I don’t get pregnant naturally this cycle (hahahaha), we will start Clomid/IUIs next cycle. We will do a max of 6, tweaking along the way. If those all fail, we’ll look at other options. We talked about them at the appointment, but I’m not ready to think about them yet and I’m not writing them down. The doctor (I need a nickname for him) seems quite confident that these will work, and I’m going to be optimistic along with him. IUIs are what I wanted for now.

In addition, I have to increase the dosage of the Parlodel (bromocriptine) ’cause that lactating thing just hasn’t gone away yet. I’m a little apprehensive about it – I already feel pretty light-headed in the morning, and I’m convinced some of the headaches I’m having are related as well. But I’ll do whatever he tells me to do.

I have true hope for the first time in awhile. It might be short-lived, but it’s the best hope, the best feeling, the most content I have been in some time. My heart will be full. It will be.

  9. My name is Helen Page and i would like to show you my personal experience with Clomid.

    I am 30 years old. I have taken for 3 months. My progesterone level after my first dose of Clomid was 65 so I knew that I had ovulated. Couldn’t try the second cycle on it because my husband went out-of-town while I was O’ing, go figure. Hoping it worked this month!!

    I have experienced some of these side effects-
    Mood swings, increased appetite, hot flashes, increased pain during ovulation, abdominal pain, mild but infrequent headaches. Also, I used to be on a consistent 28 day cycle, but I think Clomid might have lengthened it as I’m now on a 31-32 day cycle.

    I hope this information will be useful to others,
    Helen Page
