Our Mini B&B update



I just wanted to update you on our progress with our mini B&B.  I went to the doctor yesterday and he wants to put me on Clomid. Clomiphene is used to induce ovulation (egg production) in women who do not produce ova (eggs) but wish to become pregnant. Clomiphene is in a class of medications called ovulatory stimulants. It works similarly to estrogen, a female hormone that causes eggs to develop in the ovaries and be released. Of course it has its side effects such as vomiting, blurred vision, headaches, breast discomfort and vaginal bleeding to name a few.  Oh and it also increases your chances of having multiples!!!  Since the ectopic my cycle has gone haywire. What used to be a very regular cycle has now taking on a mind of its own. Sometimes Aunt Flo rears her ugly head and sometimes she lies dormant.  So I understood his reasoning for recommending the medication, however  I am not too sure as to how I feel about this right now.  Besides doing the baby dance we have not really put too much effort into conceiving at this point.  I am not charting my cycle or taking my temperature.  For some reason I just feel like it will happen when God is ready for us to conceive and carry our little one to full term. I have faith and believe that everything happens for a reason.  Mr. is older than me by 6 years and he is obsessed with having a son but doesn't put any pressure on me or us for that matter.  I just see it in his expressions around other kids or while watching TV etc.  Me on the other hand wouldn't mind having a little princess in our home. So I am weighing my options and doing research right now. Still trying not to really think about it or even stress over it for that matter.  I just wanted to get your thoughts and your take on Clomid.  Do you know of anyone who has taken this medication and if so was it a multiple birth? Did they experience any major problems while taking this medication?

  2. i do not know much about Clomid from my own personal experience but i have heard about many women who have had positive experiences and who have had multiples. some have had just one on Clomid.

    i also believe that God's timing is the best timing. pray hard and ask God what he thinks you should do. he will lead you to make the best decision!

    praying for you!

  3. I haven't heard anything about Clomid...

    Have you ever read Monica's blog (monicamingo.com)? I bet she's had experience with it, and she's really sweet and always responds to emails.

  5. I'm praying for the both of you sweetie. As you said, everything happens for a reason. God has a plan for you and hubby, so just continue to pray and He will lead you in the right direction to help you make the right choice :)

    So whatever you decide, I wish you two the best, and I am looking forward to being Auntie Sharina! (Yes, I have already claimed it, lol)

  6. Found your blog from your twitter post today (wingsofafairy).

    I know many people that have had success with Clomid, none that have had resulted in multiples, though. I personally, had no success with it. My body just didn't respond how it should and I didn't ovulate.

    The side effects weren't too bad for me. Minor moodiness, and some weird vision issues. I wouldn't let potential side effects hld you back, they are nothing to worry about...I promise :)

    I hope it works out for you and I will be following your blog and cheering you on if it is the route you choose to take. If not, I will be here anyhow!

  8. David prayed in Psalm 86:17, “God, send me a sign of Your favor.” When God puts a promise in our heart, He will always give us some kind of sign to confirm His Word that the promise is going to come to pass, something to boost our faith and encourage us. It may be confirmation through a dream, a person, a doctor or even something that seems like a coincidence. It may look insignificant to others, but to you it will resonate in your spirit reminding you that God is in control and directing your steps...I will keep you in my prays.

  10. I never heard of this procedure but God will give you the desires of your heart in his timing.

    Make sure you and your hubbie get away for some weekend trips in less stressful environments. When you both are ready pray together and ask God for the blessing of a child and wait. There is nothing too impossible for God so before you go through lots of medical steps try GOD first and let him guide your steps.
