I want to try acupuncture so bad.. it's just so expensive here. Carrie sent me the dietary list for my blood type that her TCM gave her.. It was funny.. I eat and drink alot on the avoid list for me..lol.. With you being on the clomid.. I wouldn't take any herbs either.. I try to even stay away from soy while taking the clomid.. I do take my prenatal omega, prenatal vitamins and a baby aspirin.. oh yea colace too.. My doctor told me to take all this so I know it's ok with my clomid. I've never had an u/s with clomid.. and you know I've been on a lot of clomid.. I'm seeing an RE and she doesn't do u/s with clomid either.. just the mlp the first month. Yes.. if you are on clomid for to long it can cause a thinning in the lining .. Baby aspirin will help increase your lining.. talk to you doctor about taking it.
I went for my first TCM/acupuncture appt yesterday. It was great. Alot of dietary recommendations which I am totally willing to try. He wanted to treat me w/ herbs, but I'm not ready for that. I'm going to try a month w/ the diet changes and acupuncture (and clomid!) and see. My TCM guy was not pleased that my Dr. is not monitoring me on Clomid w/ ultrasounds to check my lining (it can get too thin?) and to check for ovary cysts. I was a little worried about that too. If I don't get my BFP this month, I'm going to see an RE. No more Clomid from my OB. I have an open access insurance, so it should n't be a problem.
AND. . .we got DH s/a results (drumroll, please!) TOTALLY NORMAL!!! Yeehaw!!! his count was way above normal at like 145 mill/ml. Motility >50% and morphology normal
Sarah.. I think I would be begging my DH to go and get me at least a window unit.. so you can stay in one room of the house.. It's not good for your body to get to hot while TTC and when you get pg it won't be good for you to stay hot all the time.
TODAY IS MY LAST DAY OF CLOMID!!!!!! i'M SO HAPPY TO BE DONE WITH IT... IT IS ABOUT 88 DEGREES OUTSIDE AND PROBRABLY LIKE 90 SOMETHING INSIDE MY HOUSE. I'M STILL REALLY DIZZY, I HAVE A HORRIBLE HEADACHE, HOT FLASHES AND CRAMPS. SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I AM VERY MOODY. I WISH OUR HOUSE HAD A/C. WE LIVE ON A LAKE SO USUALLY WE HAVE A NICE BREEZE. BUT NOT TODAY!! FIGURES!! I FEEL LIKE I'M LOSING MY MIND!! I AM TRYING TO STAY AWAY FROM MY POOR GRANDPA SO I DON'T YELL AT HIM FOR NO REASON.. SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THAT THE CLOMID SIDE EFFECTS GO AWAY WHEN YOUR DONE TAKING THE PILLS.. SORRY ALL YA'LL HAD TO READ ALL THIS OF ME COMPLAINING. I HAD TO VENT SOMEWHERE!!! THANKS FOR LISTENING... HOPE EVERYONE ELSE IS HAVING A GOOD DAY!!!
