Have you ever...

Have you ever cut out ALL carbs from your diet?
Have you ever taken Clomid?
Have you ever taken Prometrium?
Have you ever done all of the above at the same time?

That's what I'm doing right now and I could pull my hair out! I'm moody, depressed & irritable. I've had a headache, nausea, diarrhea, breast tenderness, hot flashes and night sweats since Tuesday. I don't sleep at night which makes all of this worse during the day...it just plain sucks. I just have to keep reminding myself that it will all be worth it in the end if we end up with a healthy pregnancy and child.
Isn't it amazing what a woman will do and put her body through in order to be blessed with the miracle of life? How easy it would be to just throw your hands in the air and give up, but there have been so many women who have done all of this and for long periods of time to be blessed with a child from God.

I tried to pick things that would make it look more like me, only I couldn't find an option for a big Ass!

I'll keep praying for you! Won't it be awesome when you're pregnant and you won't have to take any of those pills!

I've never taken the drugs...but I have been around Jen when she is...sucks for you! I have taken the carbs out of my diet and the headache and shakes that come with that are awful!

Where did you get the cool avatar? Is that what it's called?

Jen said...

Yes, yes, yes, and no. Not all at once! Oh wait! I did for 2 days TTC before Caroline. I hated the no carb thing and fell off the wagon and into a pile of Twinkies after 2 days.

Been there, it sucks.

I created my avatar at photobucket.com - you can customize them however you want, there are thousands of different clothing choices and animations they can do...it's pretty cool, you should check it out.
