I am sure those of you who don't want to be grandparents or even great grandparents that read this blog won't be to thrilled about what this post is all going to be about. So if you want to deny the fact that you will "hopefully" be a grandparent in the next year or two you can stop reading here... For those of you who want to read the rest, well here's to you.
Well Ben and I are jumping on the bandwagon for our ward with fertility issues. Apparently, we have the same luck as others in our ward. I truly believe we were put into this ward for many reasons, and this being one of them. There has been numerous ladies I have talked too about this issue and they all have something to say and tell me all of the time that if I need to talk that they will be there for me, I appreciate it alot!! I was told last year at the doctor's that I was going to have a hard time getting pregnant. I didn't stress about it too much because at the time we weren't even considering having children, but as you'd guess it I became baby hungry and told Ben we were going to stop preventing it, and see what was going to come of it. Well, here I am blogging about it. Still not pregnant, and still very very baby hungry. Sorry, to both of my dad's it's true. Anyways, I went to my doctor a couple of weeks ago for that wonderful check up and told him that we wanted to start trying to get pregnant. I'm sure the doctor wasn't too surprised when I told him I was not preventing getting pregnant. He gave me some advice, and told me to get on some Prenatal vitamins, and that we should begin testing when we wanted too. If things aren't working like normal that I could call in and get on Clomid. (am I spelling this right??)
Which brings me to what I want to talk about...
I've been taking Prenatal vitamins the past week. Nothing unusual about it. It's just like taking a birth control pill. Except for the fact, that I have some freakishly weird dreams. I don't know if it's because all my thoughts and energy are possessed into the fact that we are trying to get pregnant or if this is normal and it will pass. Anyone else have some weird dreams while on prenatal vitamins?
Next Topic...Clomid (sp??)
I've heard some rather interesting story about this pill. Most, not good. Like, for instance one second you can be happy, the next you will be onery and upset. My hormones are all ready messed up why do we put ourselves through this and only make it worse? Well if things aren't right my doctor said that this will be the next step. Gaylene, this is the part where you would tell me some "good" side effects to this evil pill.
I realize that this is what might be necessary for us to have children. I know that this is going to test our "true love" towards each other especially if I have to go on Clomid. Poor Ben, after the pill he might not want to have a baby with this crazed, onery, frightening women.
