I guess it’s about time I fill you all in.
We did a total of three cycles trying Clomid, and it didn’t work.
It works for a lot of people struggling with infertility, but it didn’t work for us. We knew we’d only have three months to try it, so we planned a vacation, knowing whether or not we were pregnant by then, we would definitely need a break.
Clomid might be the worst medication I’ve ever taken, and I’ve taken a lot. I lost count of the side effects I experienced, and even though I tried not to read through the extensive list beforehand, I still knew the killer heartburn, hot flashes, and extreme mood swings were all Clomid. It was physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausting. And poor Tim had to deal with it all, too.
We decided March would be a month-long break. It would be free of medication, free of ovulation and pregnancy tests (a girl can get tired of peeing on sticks very quickly), and give ourselves some time to take a breath before moving on to the next step.
So, we headed to one of my favorite cities in Georgia: Savannah.
I’m not one of those people who wants to do all the things during a trip. Vacation to me means relaxing, sleeping in, and coming home well rested. Basically, when I get home I don’t need a vacation from my vacation.
We took our time getting to Savannah, and we took our time when we got there. No, we didn’t get to see everything. But that’s okay. We walked to every single square last time we went to Savannah, anyway.
We ate good food, went on an obligatory cheesy ghost tour, hung out at bars (including a dueling piano bar), and we relaxed.
And now we’re back in the real world, and the break is over. Here we go.
What inspired you to start blogging?
I’ve always loved writing essays since grade school. Looking back, I think this was what inspired me to blog. When I started blogging, most of my entries were essays about my life in school and my struggles as a teenager.
How did you and your husband meet?
My husband and I have known each other since second year high school, but we only became “romantically” involved with each other 10 years later. Truth is, we never imagined marrying each other because we weren’t “high school sweethearts”.
What is the most fascinating place you’ve ever traveled to?
I guess I’m going to say Thailand. I’ve been to Thailand twice—first was on our honeymoon in Krabi then recently joined my family to welcome the new year in Bangkok. I think Thailand has one of the best beaches in the world that both my husband and I fell in love with. I highly recommend going to Thailand. It won’t cost you an arm and a leg to spend your holiday there, plus the food is really great!
