baby making

We are another step closer in this baby making process.
{if this is tmi, sorry...this is for my own keepsake}

I completed my first round of 50mg Clomid on Wednesday. With what I think the only side effect was bloat and a tad bit of moodiness. Other than that, I didn't notice I was on any meds. But... once I start ovulating we will see if I experience pain or discomfort, because I have heard some follicles can get pretty large. Fingers crossed I don't even notice.

Being on a medication to help get pregnant is kind of an odd feeling. I never thought I would need help. I cannot believe I am actually moving forward with having a kid {even though everyone I know has a least one}. Am I old enough?!?! Don't answer that! The thought of being parents scares me, but excites me and thrills me all at the same time.

I have dreamed about becoming a mom for as long as I can remember. Picking out decor for a nursery. All the cute clothes, especially now that Pinterest is around. Holy mother of all things cuteness!!! 

In time. Right?!? Patience. I need to be patient. I'm trying to be patient. 

This weekend I start tracking my ovulation. Not really excited about this part. I have done this before with the little smiley face pee sticks, which the doctor told me to get again, and they always say negative. I know this isn't rocket literally pee on the stick when you wake up. How can I be doing it wrong?!?! By the way, these things are expensive!!! 30 something bucks!! Craziness!!!

I do this ovulation nonsense stuff, until I get a negative result. That is if I even get a positive result to begin with. 

But, I will be positive. 
I have to be. 
I know emotions and stress play a part in everything...especially baby making. 

Once I am done with the ovulation kits, we wait.
Wait to find out if this round worked.
Wait to find out if we are gonna be parents. 

Who ever said baby making was supposed to be romantic?!?!?
That went out the window, when you have scheduled sex nights, given to you by the doctor...

The things we do, do have a baby.... or two ;)

Sending lots of positive, baby making vibes! My husband and I had trouble as well. After an ectopic and a miscarriage last year I'm less than 2 months out from having our baby. There is hope out there!!!!!

Maybe do some yoga for relaxation? And flexibility for that sexy time ;)

Wishing you the very best!! I pray this works for you! I used to test with the ovulation strips in the afternoon, it had to be the same time everyday. But it's an unfortunate welcome to timed sex, but your can still make it fun and romantic - that's experience after 4 years of treatment!!

Send happy baby thoughts your way! :) I just felt bloated and moody on clinic and didn't once feel ovulation so hopefully you will be that way too! So excited for you guys!!

Good luck! Even though I never had to go on meds, for our son we tried for 8 months before getting pregnant. (turned out my husband was on a med that actually is being tested as male birth control...) I know it can be so hard waiting and taking all romance out of he fun parts. Hopefully you'll only need a round or two!! :)
