I'm officially here!

I just started my Clomid/IUI cycle. I've taken day 2 of Clomid and so far no side effects of the meds. I start ultrasounds on Feb 13th daily until O and then IUI time!

This is going to be the longest month EVER!!

OOOOh I hope this is it!! I'm glad you aren't having any side effects. I think I'm more scared about side effects than anything else about clomid. I actually would welcome twins hehe. Keep us updated!

LOL. I think I spoke too soon! I got a massive headache last night that's still sort of a dull ache this morning. I hope that it eventually goes away!

Oh no, I hope the headache went away. I will start Clomid tomorrow. I'm thinking about taking it later in the day in case it does upset my tummy or worse, make me dizzy and sick. This might seem weird to anyone else but the ladies who post on these boards, BUT my period was much heavier than it has been in a long time, sorry TMI. I am hoping that's a really good sign because most of the time it's not very heavy and last maybe 2 days.

best of luck with the clomid and IUI!!! i know what you mean about these months dragging on and on. and i often get bad headaches during the days when i'm taking the clomid. the other side effects i don't feel til after ovulation (nausea, etc.). it's a bummer 'cause the clomid side effects can be so similar to early pregnancy symptoms!

anyway, welcome, and keep us posted! Smile

Christina - the headache did get better. I have an overall sort of sick feeling now though, like a heavy head and a little nausea.

So, there can be symptoms AFTER I stop taking the meds? LOL, I totally didn't even think of that!

Good luck Rachael. Yes, there can be symptoms after you stop taking it right up until your next period. Just warn DH now to be on his best behavior so you don't have to deal with him LOL

Thanks Dawn. I didnt even think of that part!

So far the major thing I've felt is just Luke I'm run down. As if I'm getting over a cold or flu. Headaches and exhausted.

Weird side effect, my AF ended earlier! Usually she go full force for 5 days then spotting for 2 days. This time she was done on CD 4 with only light spotting the last three days.

I was wondering did you have any cramps or ovulation pain when starting Clomid? I noticed on day one I had cramping/ovulation pain and again yesterday. I'm waiting to see if it starts again today. The first day I was thinking it was just the tail end of my period causing it, but noticed it again yesterday and it was on my left side ovulation pain. Just curious, my husband thinks I'm crazy because even I said it doesn't cause INSTANT egg release lol

my AF ends earlier on clomid cycles, too.

and i do experience some cramping throughout the month on clomid...almost more like a feeling of fullness or heaviness in my abdomen, but also some occasional sharp pains that feel like they are localized in one or the other of my ovaries. but i think it's just due to the meds enlarging the ovaries, not a sign of actual ovulation, unless it occurs at ovulation time (day 14 or 15). but that's just my theory, i don't really know. Smile

i'm CD 11, and using OPKs twice a day now...no positive yet, but i'm hoping it will happen in the next couple days. otherwise, i'll be forced to go out and buy more OPK strips! haha. DH keeps asking "is it baby-making day yet?"
