Clomid #3

Somehow I made it through the holidays. It's hard keeping this whole thing quiet since I like to talk. But I know that it's for the best. Well.. I have of course told my friends, just we're not ready to tell family yet. Just too much pressure.

Anyway, today was another daty with the lovely OB. CD2 so I had to have an ultrasound. The good news is that AF came on her own this time & I don't have to take anymore progesterone. Apparently that plus my increased CD21 progesterone levels tells us this dosage works. So that's a good thing. The level went from 0.9 up to 25.4. For me that's a big jump. So we try again with cycle #3.

This Clomid is getting the better of me though. I already had a bit of a temper, but now.. man I flip out pretty good. Not just at little things but I really go nuts, yelling & screaming. Woa.. plus I'm hot all the time. Why do they call it hot 'flashes'? I'm just always hot. I know January in NC is not exactly frigid, but it's still odd for me to be this hot in January. I even crack the windows in my car sometimes!
