I have been an overall bad blogger over the past few days, but I had decided before I started the clomid that I wanted to keep a diary of sorts on here to document how I felt on my clomid. One, it's my blog and I'll blog what I want, second, I know some of you are wondering what to expect yourselves!
There it is, the most important prescription I've ever had filled...at least in my mind!
Monday, CD 5, Clomid Day 1
I am taking my clomid in the morning, just because that is when I take my aspirin and folic acid. I felt good today and didn't have any side effects.
Tuesday, CD 6, Clomid Day 2
Had a mini hot flash around 3:00, but that could have been stress from the crazy afternoon in office, not sure. Felt a little more hungry than normal, again, who knows if that has anything to do with clomid. Most important thing was a dull pinching, stabbing pain in my left pelvic area that started late and went away pretty quickly.
Wednesday, CD 7, Clomid Day 3
Woke up at 3:40 with that same stabbing pain, only much worse. Went back to sleep, still there when alarm went off at 6:30. Hot flashes more noticeable today, definitely the real thing! Ha! Also, no moodiness or anxiousness! PTL! As day went on and especially after on my feet this afternoon, abdominal pain got worse. Called OB office. Take 600mg motrin at 4:00 and again at bedtime. If it gets worse or motrin doesn't help, call Dr. Smith (the OB, not the surgeon boss!). If they do not see me in the ER tonight, appointment at 9:30 am for ultrasound to check for hyperstimulation or cyst.
So, that leads me to my next question...if you've ever taken clomid, did you have any pain like this? What if clomid hyperstimulates me or causes cysts, can I take a different drug next cycle? Anyone know what my options would be? I am so frustrated with the possibility that I may have to quit my cycle or that it may not be working correctly. I won't be surprised, as nothing ever goes as I have them planned!
