and so it begins

I guess I'm really in this battle with infertility now, seeing as I get to down a little yellow pill (Femara) tomorrow morning (and for the next 4 days).
CD1 and AF showed with full force on Sat. and we took a trip to the pharmacy.
I then proceeded to tell the 5 little yellow pills that they would not under any circumstance were they going to put me through any of the side effects...all of which I already have. I just can't deal with more muscle pain, headaches, upset stomachs, the poops, hot flashes, increased appetite and weight gain (to name a few).
Up until now I kept telling myself that we could do this naturally...
Guess I was lying to myself.

And I'm kinda ok if we get stuck with twins (there's a high rate of multiples),it just means we don't have to go through this crap again.


  1. I've never taken femara so I don't actually know much about it. But I have taken clomid and those sound like a lot of the same symptoms!

    I hope this stuff works and you only have to take it this cycle. :)

  2. and double the babies to snuggle.

    Hoping that you don't get any side effects my love
    and you get your BFP soon!



be nice. be kind. be loving.
