Welcome all ICLWer’s to my little corner of the web. This is my second time doing ICLW and I am excited. It could not have come at a better time. I currently have one week left on my first real two week wait with my RE. I am trying to keep myself occupied and busy so to do that I decided to try to be an Iron Commenter this month. So we will see how I do.
Ok a little bit about me – I’m 30, been married a bit over three years to my husband, and am a stay at home wife at the moment. Husband is an engineer. We are relatively new to the process and have been trying for seven months. I have PCOS and was diagnosed way back when. I was put on bc pills because of that and had been on bc pills for over ten years before I decided to come off them. My RE always said I would have to go on Clomid (I saw him before ttcing because of PCOS issues) and he was right. I am currently on a cycle where I used 100mg of Clomid. We went for a natural cycle and didn’t have an IUI. I’m a big wimp when it comes to medical procedures and doctors, but I’ve come a long way from the beginning of this process.
Currently I have eight days until I go in for a blood test to see if it worked. I am excited for the chance to be pregnant (I’ve never had a bfp ever), but most of the time I don’t feel like it will really happen this month. As far as side effects I have bloating I think (though I always am bloated because of IBS), overly tired (I think that’s the progesterone), occasional cramping, and most recently headaches, but I think that is from the dumb progesterone suppositories. I keep looking for new ones and over analyzing everything, which is why I am trying to become an Iron Commenter instead of being nutty. I look forward to “meeting” all of you.
