Just one person's tale to tell....

I am a 35-year-old journalist who has decided there is no better way to overcome difficult times than to write--feel free to post, comment or just read along. This is my blog about the struggles I endured of trying to conceive. For all those out there who are experiencing the same difficulties--sometimes it is nice to hear that you are not alone.

Hot Hot Hot Mama-to-be

For all the ladies out there who are about to begin fertility drugs I feel the need to warn you about the terrible onset of Hot Flashes! While it certainly isn't the worst side effect--it can be the biggest pain in the butt. During my first round of Clomid I scoured the Internet reading many women's blogs and found many of them discussing hot flashes---I felt I got off lucky--no flames spewing on my body! Well Round 2 was a different story---from about the 3rd day of taking Clomid I experienced the burn. Being in the winter months it was even worse, as I was seen ripping my scarf, hat, coat and even sweater off--while standing on the sidewalk on my street. Yep! I was the crazy lady who looked like she just stepped on a mound of fire ants. WHile everyone is battling the storm--I was basking in the sleet. It's like an overwhelming claustraphobic power comes into me where if I don't get my layers off I will suffocate.
I have no idea how marines survive in scorching desert climates with all those layers and gear--all I can say is if that were me----I'd be one naked marine!!
