TTC: Put your game face on

This is what I saw on the pregnancy test this morning!

Ok, no not really, but that's what it should have said. It was mocking me, I swear. We are on to the next cycle. We have made the big decision to go on Clomid. This will at least shorten my cycles to 28-30 days.

I've figured out through this process that if we have a plan, I seem to stress less. Wanna know our plan?

1. We will both be drinking POM juice; there have been so many studies done on the positive effects of POM juice for both men and women. We figured we'd give it a try.

2. No alcohol during fertile time; I know no fun but I've read that this little thing can help

3. I'm going to get a massage; Chris thinks I'm too stressed out, so I agreed to a massage. Believe me, he really had to twist my arm on this one ;)

4. And for my spiritual being; I found a fertility bracelet that I really want. If you watch Real Housewifes of NJ one of the girls on there bought one and was pregnant the same month. I believe, I believe!

Simple enough plan, right?

I'm super nervous, scared and excited all at one. I plan on keeping this blog updated with as much information on our first cycle of Clomid as possible. I feel like there are a ton of us going through this and maybe my little old blog can make us feel like we're not alone?

Good luck, sweetie! I hope that your first cycle of Clomid is a huge success. :)

The doctors told me that I would need clomid too (my cycles after getting off the pill were over 40+ days, and some were anovulatory). We decided to just quit trying at that point and then got pregnant the next month. I firmly believe that the stress of "trying" to get pregnant wears on your body. I know it's easier said than done, but I'll be praying that you can just let go of it all so that your body can do what it's meant to do. I have a ton of friends who have used clomid with great success-- I hope it's that way for you too!
