So our first attempt was a BFN and that was a hard pill to swallow (and anyone TTC knows we swallow a lot of pills) <rim shot>.

When Your Next Cycle Will Start
In our last post we told you about how Aunt Flo wasn't making her appearance and, to be honest, after the hormone induced craziness of the past couple of months your mind starts to think... science could be wrong- blood has never proven anything ever and there's a chance that I still might be pregnant because everyone knows "being late" is the surefire symptom, as proven by the 1950s.
Well, AF finally came. I'm not pregnant (duh). The doctor started me on another round of Clomid and, like last time, it was horrible (refresher: Clomid is a medication to help encourage ovulation). The two biggest side effects I noticed were hot flashes and the inability to stay asleep. The hot flashes were just beautiful little fairies that breathed the fire of a thousand hells on you at 3am. But it's cool because you were already awake at 2am unable to go back to sleep until 15 minutes before you alarm was about to go off. So that was convenient. #sarcasm Luckily that only lasts for 5 nights, but I want to publicly apologize to everyone I encountered on those 5 glorious days of fatigue and sweat stains (<--new band name, I call it).
I started doing ovulation testing Monday and today we got a big ol' smiley meaning I'm at my peak of ovulation.
