Well, today is the day that I start Clomid. It is the 3rd day of my cycle and I will take the pills day 3-7. I am so nervous about starting the pills because last time I was on them they made me quite evil. I don't recall any other side effects except for the mood swings and hot flashes. My husband calls Clomid the devil pill so we are both not really looking forward to me starting them. I am now a SAHM so I don't have the insurance I use to have and my DH's insurance doesn't cover a single drop of anything when it comes to infertility coverage so Clomid is the cheapest way and my fertility specialist thought it would be worth a try seeing as though I have always been a poor ovulator. So, that is where we stand right now. I am not sure if Clomid will work for us since it didn't work years ago, but I am definitely holding out hope and keeping the FAITH. I guess a part of me thinks that since I have been pregnant before then perhaps I could get pregnant a bit easier this time around. I am probably kidding myself, but I am still trying my best to stay positive and hope for the best. I know Cameron would be a GREAT big brother!! He is truly just the sweetest little boy that I have ever seen and so well behaved......ok, well at least most of the time (lol). I remember when I was going through all of this before we got pregnant with Cameron and we went through test after test and fertility treatment after fertility treatment and I thought to myself that I would never get pregnant. I went through an emotional roller coaster every single day and it was so hard. I guess having Cameron makes things a bit easier this time around. We are hoping for Baby #2, but if it doesn't happen on Clomid then I will just continue to thank my lucky stars that we have our little miracle Cameron. Anyway, here is to Clomid pill #1 (UGHH). Keep us in your prayers.......
I am a Christian, daughter, sister, wife, and a very proud Mommy to a beautiful little boy that was conceived through IVF. My husband and I have been married for over 7 years and truly enjoy every single day that we have with our little miracle. After a loss in 2004 and many years of infertility treatments we were finally blessed with our son in 2007. He is indeed a precious gift from God and we are so very blessed to have him in our lives.
During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, thrift store shopping, making primitive signs & gameboards and re-finishing items with great prim potential.

My journey with infertility started back in Feb. 2004 after we lost a child due to an ectopic pregnancy. I struggled for over a year to get pregnant and then decided to seek help. We tried 6 months of clomid, intrauterine insemination (2 times) and finally IVF. We were blessed with our little miracle in January 2007 after our first round with IVF. We are so happy and he is truly a gift from God. Our story is below...check back frequently as I am constantly adding more posts, pictures and funny stories.
