Trouble TTC

How funny the mind is...

So I am finishing up day 3 of my 5 day Clomid cycle... and I started giggling to myself when I realized my line of thinking... 

I have googled and read.. asked and then googled some more... most what I read said the side effect of clomid is this and that... pretty common stuff... hot flashes, moody... bloating.. bitchy... moody... bitchy... etc...

I just realized that I assumed since I was so in-tune with my body... I would have this overwhelming sensations as my follicles were growing... LIKE -- a scene out of a "heaven" movie.... a misty scene... that breaks away to the first glimpse of god... TA DA.... FEEL YOUR follicles GROW!!!! TA DA  

 

BAHAHAHAHA!- I dont feel ***.. good.. bad.. or different... no side effects... not twinging... nothing.... and because I didnt have this EPIC sensations... I was sitting here thinking... - I must BE IMMUNE to these drugs....

seriously I had tears running down my face...( of laughter of course)

well... maybe emotional might classify as a small side effect... :)~~~~

Re: How funny the mind is...

  • Hahahaha I totally had something like this when I was on Clomid a few cycles ago! I would question everything about it. I didn't get the Clomid crazies from the actual Clomid, I get them from the insane things I came up with all on my own.

  • Just wait until you're closer to cd12.  I didn't feel anything on clomid the first few days but once you get a follie around 16mm or larger I would always get these little pains.  Not constant, just every now and then like someone poked me in the ovary.  

    But I totally get the *scene* you're talking about.  Like the sun shines down from the parting clouds right on you and you hear angels going "aaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!" as you suddenly *feel* follies.  Nope.  Not like that at all.  You'll be standing in line at Target wanting to get through the line so you can do home and cook dinner and suddenly you'll think "Ow, WTH? Oh right, that's probably my ovary with a growing follie."

  • As I'm reading this I'm having shooting pain on my left side... maybe you really can feel those follies! Haha. I totally get what you're saying, this is my first cycle on Clomid and I thought would turn into a crazy lady that was dripping sweat the minute I popped the first pill. Turns out I just got a couple headaches. Lol. Now I'm on CD15 and a whole different kind of crazy waiting to O. Good times TTC.

    Yup. Give it a week. You'll feel it. It's as if your ovaries were 25lb weights.
