Hot stuff

Last year, we stopped using our a/c in September. We didn't take it out of the window until late October though, mostly out of laziness. This year I may actually have need of it until then, as I'm on 100mg of Clomid for 3 months (fingers crossed that I don't need it that long) and I feel like I'm going through menopause with all these hot flashes! My body has been so bi-polar for the last week or so and I thought something was really wrong, but future doctor Daniel said it was probably a side effect of the medication. I icebox our bedroom and still throw off the covers in the middle of the night, while Daniel wears flannel pajama pants and sometimes uses an extra blanket. After doing some research, I discovered that hot flashes were reported in 10% of women during clinical trials, with most of them not ending until a few weeks after the cycle was finished (although they weren't as frequent). If that's the case and I really need all 3 rounds, I'm going to be nice and toasty for awhile. Maybe I won't mind this winter so much after all...

  1. Goodluck with the clomid! I've seen it work miracles...and sometimes 2 miracles! Wouldn't that be a blast!:) Sorry about the hot flashes though...crazy what us women go through for children but it is worth it.
