I was wondering why I was so cranky today.
I'm not PMSing, and usually I'm feeling pretty good mood-wise at the start of the cycle (aside from the sadness brought on by another failed cycle, but I don't feel so incredibly down like I do before AF arrives).
While I was filling out my T3 temperature chart (again, I cannot stand taking my temperature and pulses four times a day!) I noticed the list of side effects:
- Fluid retention/Puffiness
- Flu-like Feelings/Achiness
- Dull Headache
- Increased awareness of heartbeat
My crazy class may be to blame or my substitute yesterday who didn't teach what I had in my plans (nor cleaned the chalkboard -- I have no idea what the woman did in five and a half hours!), but I'm sure that the T3 is mostly to blame.
And to make things even more interesting I start back on C.lomid tomorrow.
Someone may want to get Mr. JB a flack jacket and a helmet.
Btw, my Napro doctor thinks that starting Cl.omid on CD6 was the reason why my cycle was so long. My estrogen and progesterone were stellar, although the former was a bit high so we're cutting back C.lomid to CD3, 4 and 5 this round.
I need to erase the past six years of disappointment since I'm working with newly overhauled ladyparts. I will try very hard not to think of my 37 year old eggs (typing that hurt, a lot).
So instead of drowning my sorrows in a barrel of wine I am going to tuck myself into bed, pray my Seven Sorrows Rosary (thank you Hebrews!) and then read my book.
Please pray that I don't lose it. I'm pretty close and it's only day two of my new dosage of T3 and I feel that it make take a while to get used to it.
Opportunities for sanctification, right?
