On CD29, I took a pregnancy test and received a BFN. I took another Prometrium that night before bed, since this was the game plan discussed with my ob/gyn. The next day CD30 turned into CD1. I was excited that AF came so soon, but sad because I was really hoping that I had just tested too early. DH was sad too when I told him the test results. I think we both were hoping I had just tested too soon. We were hoping to get pregnant before having to start the Clomid.
Friday was CD5 and my first day taking Clomid. I was scared because I didn't know how it would effect me. The ob/gyn warned that it brings hot flashes, mood swings and feels like you are going through menopause. I try to take it later in the day. I think the effects have been minimal. I do think it does make my moods go from 0-10 in a matter of seconds. One minute I am fine and the next I am angry. Having PCOS, I have had mood swings, but those had gotten better since February. I have only experienced a few hot flashes since taking the Clomid. I also had these hot flashes before taking Clomid. So of course, I am worried that maybe the Clomid isn't working or won't work. Before starting the Clomid, I was telling myself that I just need to embrace whatever side effects (mood swings, hot flashes) that it brings because that is how I know it will be working. But since it is nothing like I thought it would be, I am worried that it's not working on me. I guess we will see. It is a waiting game, isn't it?
