I need a break

I had a horrible week last week and I don't know if it was the Clomid or what. I had a huge amount of stress at work, at home with DS, etc. Sunday I had to ask DH to take DS to the park so I could have an hour alone. I had such a short fuse and I would cry at the drop of the hat.

I have never had this bad a reaction to Clomid. It was so bad that my boss was worried about me being over stressed. I'm taking this Friday and the following Monday off so I can have sometime where I don't have to focus on work or family. I can just relax.

It has made me want to take a break from TTC, but we only have this cycle ( I should O early next week) and then 2 more before we call it quits.

This is really taking a toll on me and I just want it to be over, but in a good way.  

Dx: PCOS and short luteal phase
18 cycles (3 with our RE) - Metformin + Clomid + HCG booster did the trick!

  • I hope the two days give you the break you deserve.  Hugs-- lots on your plate.  I'd be stressed, too.

  • Thanks, ladies. I knew you all would understand and not think I was losing it. I am so sorry that many of us feel this way. I hope we all get the break we need.
