Cycle 18 CD 6

I am happy to report that I have slept through until morning the past two nights without being awakened by sweats or the urgent need to pee. Either my body is getting used to the hormones I'm putting into it, or Sunday night was a fluke.

I have noticed that I seemed to be retaining water yesterday (though after drinking nearly 3 liters over the course of the day, it seems to have resolved today), and I have been emotionally labile, which is unlike me. I have moments of feeling fine, as usual, and moments of feeling sad or angry. Not sure if this is medication-related or not.

I logged onto Facebook this morning to discover yet another person on my friends list announcing her pregnancy in a status update. I'm happy for her, I guess (she is not a close friend, haven't seen her in about 20 years), but how many more of these announcements am I going to have to endure? Geesh.

Third shot of Follistim tonight. I'm annoyed because I'm having to leave work earlier than usual and work out earlier than usual in order to get home in time to take the shot. How annoying! At least I don't take the Clomid until 9:00. (BTW, is anyone else grossed out by the bitterness of the Clomid tablets? It's just awful!)

Things are moving along. Baby steps.


  1. OMG. I hate the FB pregnancy announcements, I just posted about it today! Good luck with your shots, hopefully this cycle will BE IT!!!

  2. i'm going to start clomid tonight (rogue). oh yeah, thanks for remining me about the yumminess of those cheap tabs.

    i had HORRIFIC night sweats while on stims. oh lordy. really bad. i hope it was a fluke for you.

    i have bad swelling (hands & feet) on about 4 out of 7 days a week. i'm trying to really up my water intake, too. today i've gotten about 60 ounces in me...i think i can squeeze a few more in before bed - i'll need 8 ounces just to get that clomid down the hatch.

    i've been way under my points for two days! we are gonna be some skinny minnies!!
