Clomid’s good, Maine is better

Apparently I’m one of the lucky ones. I have had next to no side effects from Clomid. Well, I have had some side effects, but I am chalking them up to the lifestyle I’ve been enjoying while on Clomid. I’m up in Northern Maine, visiting grandparents. We sit around, reading, playing cards, and eating. Non-stop eating. And it’s not healthy eating, either. So, my slight stomach discomfort and tiredness is going to be blamed on over-indulging, not Clomid. That said, I also had one hot flash this morning in bed, but it was hot in my room. No weird mood swings, though.

So I stand by what I said – next to no side effects from Clomid. I’ve got two more pills to go, which is exciting. I sure hope it’s doing what it’s supposed to be doing.

In other news, I’ve been giving my New Year’s post a lot of thought. It’s cliche, but what better time to step back, reflect, and form some new goals? So stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I’ll be enjoying my Maine meals.

    Ugh. Jealous over here. Pretty much about everything lol!! I’ve been trying my best to eat as healthy as I can, though I’m not going to lie… I have bad days and then reeeeeeeealllllly bad days! lol. But I had awful mood swings on Clomid. And provera too <— which my doctor said was rare, but could happen. (I think they were trying to tell me that at least those mood swings were in my head!!! lol)
    But on the clomid I had moments where I really felt like I had stepped out of my body for a moment and some crazy devil woman had momentarily replaced me. ugh.. the things we do to try and bare children!! 😀

    Thanks for your comment! You know what – I’m with you with regard to eating badly. Over the last few years my eating habits have gotten dramatically worse. I’ll have short periods where I feel in control, and make better choices, and might lose a couple pounds, but more often than not it’s the other way around. And now is one of those times! So I totally hear you. As for the mood swings – that’s awful that you had them on Clomid AND Provera! That’s really horrible! Did you have mood swings when you had PMS? I only ask because I feel like those people who do have bad PMS also would be affected on Clomid. It’s just a hunch. I was lucky enough to not have PMS really, so maybe it’s related. Either way, it’s worth it in the end!

      I never really had awful PMS, but I’ve always been one of those sensitive, emotional kind of girls, so it could just be how I normally am, just ten times worse! lol.
      But I’m like you with the weight loss. There are times where I get really motivated and will lose weight. The eight months leading up to my wedding, I got control of myself and managed to lose about 35 pounds. Most of which I’ve been lucky enough to keep off, but I know some of it has found it’s way back! lol.
      I need to go back to the gym, which I pay for every month!!, and at least start walking again. I never really did anything too strenuous when I was going. Did some weights and a lot of time of the treadmill or the elliptical. Heavy weight lifting will be out of the picture if I get pregnant soon, but I know there is a huge benefit in walking a lot, especially when it comes to the labor and delivery.
