About Round 2

I have just entered day 29.

I haven't talked much about round 2 simply because there isn't much to say this time. I knew what to expect with clomid this round and I was settled in and prepared to face the worst. It hasn't been terrible yet.

I had a couple of days with some pretty severe migraines.

I have had a bit of ovarian action (so I assume) but I can't tell you exactly what has happened and I didn't take the obsessive time to write it down in red this time either.

Nausea... This bothered me so much last time and this time it has come and gone. In the beginning it was rather icky but tapered off and now it has ramped up again.

I have been tired this time but I have also been working. It has been a really busy time of the year too so perhaps I am just tired. Hubby did make a comment yesterday about my increase in sleep, but I always do that before af and I have been on fall break so who knows?

I don't get that moody on this stuff. I know some people do but for me, other than a bit of weepiness here and there, I stay pretty mellow. Infact, I have to say, I think my moods have been better.

I have lost seven pounds in the past two weeks. An unexpected but welcomed side effect!

Dreams... Weird. I did this last time too, so I know it is a side effect. One of those that the doc will never admit to. My dreams are so vivid and bizarre. Hubby has been having a lot of fun laughing at me and shaking his head in disbelief at some of the things my unconscious self thinks up.

The "girls" are sore. They have been since day seven I think. I can put up with it for the most part, but I'm not sure poor hubby is doing so well!

The hot flashes. OMG! I saved the best for last. I don't know why, but I feel like my skin has been roasted slowly over an open flame whilst tribal dancers sing chants and wave sticks at me. Mostly, I have problems with my feet. I seriously sit some nights with ice packs on my feet. If anyone has any advice about this please let me know! It has started getting cooler and I am still walking around barefoot, loving the feel of the cold grass or floor on my feet.

That's really about it. Emotionally, I'm just here right now. I know in the next few days my anxiety will rise and I will start wondering a bit more about things, but at this point in the game I just don't have a whole lot to give to either side of the coin. I pray, hope, dream, and wish, but my battle scars are starting to burn a bit too.

Like always, time will tell...
