So confused about the Clomid this cycle...

Okay so this is my second round of Clomid and I feel so different this time around. I didn't feel different at all before or after O until about 9DPO or so. I got really bad cramps while out shopping and came home and got sick to my stomach for about an hour and then it went away. My stomach has been fine since then but I have been having cramps off and on. My boobs are so huge and so swollen I can barely stand it. I'm getting these awful burning pains that feel really deep and they throb and ache so bad. My nipples(tmi) are really sore too. They almost feel like they're being twisted when nothing is touching them. I've also had nausea and some weird tunnel vision spells or something when I just feel strange...almost like I have low blood sugar but it seems to happen more often after I eat. I've had the worst mood swings ever and I've just been so depressed because I'm so worried that I'm having false symptoms from the Clomid.

Does anyone know if Clomid can cause you to have these kinds of symptoms after O? Last month I had no PMS at all and my doc actually said he thought my PMS could be better on Clomid. The only thing that was really different post O on Clomid last time vs. when I don't take Clomid was that my cycle was about 3 days longer. I assumed it would be longer this time too so am not expecting AF until Sunday. Tests have been BFN so far. I'm 11DPO now.

I'm just not sure I can handle getting my hopes up like this each time and I'm not sure how not to. It's so hard to know what to think when last time I had no symptoms of PMS or otherwise and this month it's like I've got everything in the book. I don't know if I'm pregnant and it's just too early or if I should expect AF any day now. I feel like I'm going to go crazy.

Any words of wisdom or experiences to share that may help? I'd appreciate it so much!

Some of the symptoms you are having are normal, but some are not. They sound very promising. Good luck and KUP
