2nd clomid cycle - CD10

Well, I just came off from allyouwhohope blog, and decided to update my blog rightaway! Woo Hoo!

My first clomid cycle was a bust. I took it from CD5 to CD9. Ultrasound at my gynae on CD13 showed 2 follicles in my left ovary, but they weren't of big enough size, meaning clomid didn't work on me and I didn't ovulate earlier at CD14. Charting showed me ovulating around CD17/18.....

It's a dark period for me then. I was really depressed then. I really thought that, hey, it might worked the 1st round and I would be pregnant. In those darkest moments, I drew alot of strength from allyouwhohope and waitingforlife blogs. Thanks, thank so much for your entries, and prayers.

I was on 100mg clomid this second round. I didn't feel anything weird whilst taking it from CD2 to CD6, BUT since then, I started having quite bad water retention. My eyes feel pretty swollen. My left ovary was achy and crampy on CD8 and CD9 too. Perhaps that means I am ovulating soon. Our weekend will be busy :)

I am feeling much calmer now. The reason for not updating, well, just don't have much to say nor share :(

But I just wish comment that - over here in Singapore, our papers reporting about the US election, tends to lean in favor of Obama. McCain seems to come across as not as politically-intelligent whilst Pralin is embroiled in series of 'corruption investigations'. Therefore it's been really interesting to read about the different perspective offered in allyouwhohope blog.

Alright, I am sorry that I just hve to end here, because really, there's nothing more to say. Will conitnue to pray for everyone!!!

I read this post a couple days ago but for some reason I forgot to leave a comment! So I am doing so now...

I'm so sorry the first cycle didn't work and that you were depressed. I wish I had known so we could have offered you some help or even more prayers. I'm always here for you.

I will pray about this cycle for you!

And how funny about the media coverage of the election in Singapore! Thanks for sharing that! I'm not surprised though. Our media here is just as biased towards Obama. But the polls are neck and neck, despite that!

I am so happy my blog can be uplifting for someone. Sometimes though you can probably sense my depression from across an ocean!
ha!

Seriously, I am praying for you this cycle and hope to hear some good news!!!

We are back in the game now so prayers are appreciated!

Oh yeah, here's my thought on the US elections: Don't believe anything you hear about McCain and Obama from the mainstream media. They do not report the truth, only what they want you to believe.
