The days are just draaaaaaging by. I’ve been trying to stay relaxed this cycle. I joined a book club so I’ve been spending my evenings reading. I’ve also been allowing myself to take naps when I’m tired instead of stressing out at home after crazy days in my classroom. It also helped that we had a snow day last week so I wasn’t so swamped at work. I’m happy I haven’t had a super short cycle like my first cycle on clomid!!
I’m holding off until this upcoming weekend to take a pregnancy test (as long as AF doesn’t show). I can tell my husband is just as anxious as I am because he asks me at least five times a day how I feel. He leaves for recurrent training for his airplane next weekend, which is perfect timing. I told him I hope he either leaves with good news or comes home to good news. Or that gives me some alone time to binge on chocolate and cry over sappy movies.
We decided to take the next cycle off to reevaluate. I’m not going to lie, it’s been pretty rough on clomid. This cycle I had hot flashes and insane mood swings! Our next step is an IUI, which we finally stashed away enough money for.
I almost feel like an addict when I think about taking a month off from clomid. I find myself thinking, “just one more and maybe this will be the last!” It’s so hard to stop yourself because what if it works next month!!!
But I think for my mental health, my job security, and my marriage, I need a short hiatus from clomid.
