Cycle Day 1!

Well, AF showed up this morning! Yes, I'm excited about it...weird, I know. But this means that we are going to be on our way to trying out the clomid. I'm feeling miserable from AF but I am still excited and full of hope. So Sunday is the big day...first day of the clomid. Then, let the baby making begin! (hopefully!)

I didn't mention in my last post that the Labetalol I am taking is for my blood pressure. It's one of few that is safe during pregnancy. After a week of taking it before bed I am tolerating it much better now. Must have just needed to ease into it, who knows. So now I am up to 100 mg in the morning and 200 in the evening. Next week it'll be 200 mg twice a day.

I also figured out why I was so hot all the time. I was coming down with a cold and I was running a slight fever!

I'm not tolerating this very well! The first day I took it was Thursday (Oct 2) and shortly after my head started tingling. I also felt really weak and shaky. Needless to say, I didn't take it again Friday! I forgot to call Dr. S so I just took my old meds for the weekend and I felt fine. I took it again Monday morning and felt the same side effects again so I called and talked to the nurse. She talked to Dr. S and I am going to try it before bed to see if after a week or so I am tolerating it better.

I'm also having hot flashes again. Not with the sweating like I did with some of the depression meds I was on, but my whole body just gets HOT. Is that from the Progesterone? I didn't notice it the last time so I'm not sure. My body seems to be really sensitive to meds so it'll be interesting to see how I tolerate the Clomid!
