Outside looking in

I am on my final day of my first round of Clomid. I haven't experience near the side effects that I have heard others complain about. I have not had any crying fits or any mood swings. Hopefully those won't come after today either. I have however experienced some serious hot flashes! I thought this cartoon was cute and fitting!

Then there is the ever present dizziness and light headed feelings. Those I do have since taking this. I can be rocking along just fine and then BAM I see stars! Not really, but you get the point. It's almost like I'm outside myself looking in...if that makes any sense. I told Nicole today that I almost ran clear off the road today while driving to work and I was WATCHING WHERE I WAS GOING!!! It's like I was having delayed reactions!

Oh, and this is the worst I think...cotton mouth. I can not get enough water to save my life! I know I'm hurting the environment with all the bottles of water I am going through right now. Here's my major malfunction (at least Jon thinks it is): I only like Dasani bottled water. Can y'all taste the difference in bottled waters? Jon says you can't but I certainly can. If I'm stopping at a gas station or store and I'm going to grab a bottle of water, it will be this brand every time...if they are out...Dr. Pepper here I come!

The first two days I had some jitters...like I was taking speed up my heart pills...or at least what I imagine those to feel like. All in all, not too bad! We are praying that this first month works and that not only do these cause ovulation but that maybe this first month will do the trick and us be expecting. I know that may be a lot to ask, but people, patience is not a trait I was blessed with. I steadily work on trying to get better at it and while I know that everything will happen in God's time...I would just like to think that He knows me well enough to decide MY time and HIS time coincide!!!
Side note...Lasik is still the greatest thing ever! My vision is getting so much better every day. However, my right eye is a little bit more sore than I expected. I'm pretty sure that it's because I left my eye drops at home today on accident. Smart, right? I go back Thursday for another follow up and I'm hoping that it's better before then so he can't yell at me!!

I am glad it is going well for you. The first time I took it I would get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and just cry. LOL The next couple of times I took it I would get real clingy to Jeff. He always wants me to be, but then when I was he hated it. ha Keep us posted! We are praying for y'all. And if you have any questions, give me a call. I know how frustrating it is to see all the preggers. I'm always happy for friends, but I would be lying if I said I didn't initially have a spurt of jealousy!
