PCOS to Pregnancy: What do I do with all these hormones?

I am on my third (and final) round of Clomid and let me just say WOAH! This round better work because I am full of hormones I don't know what to do with! My cycle started 8 days sooner than I expected (based off of my history) and ever since I have suffered almost daily headaches and mood swings I don't know how to handle. I've cried daily over big and little things. My poor husband. At least he's understanding of my life right now.

I'm excited and fearful for this month. Our 4th anniversary is at the end of the month. Wouldn't a positive pregnancy test be a great anniversary present? That's what I'm hopeful for. And at the same time, I'm afraid to be hopeful because I've been let down so many times before.

Does anyone have any tips to do with these hormones? I'm trying to stay away from situations I know will make things worse for me. I haven't experience such a surge in hormones on the other two cycles. If I remember correctly, I had this same experience with my third round of Clomid a few years ago. Fingers crossed this is the month things work us!

I'm Jenny, the mama behind the blog Cloth Diaper Revival.   I'm a stay at home mom to Noah and a wife to Chas, the cloth diapering dad.  I used to be a 3rd grade teacher until I was blessed with the birth of my first child, Noah. I'm currently trying to conceive my second child while struggling with infertility due to PCOS. This series covers my journey and my experiences along the way.

Trophy Tuesday: Win a Wolbybug OS Cover and save 15% when your order them this week!

You might have heard of the Wolbybug Diaper Covers.  They're fast becoming a favorite among cloth diapering moms.  Their unique design makes them a onesize cover and their front and back flap will conveniently hold your prefold or insert in place and prevent bunching.

WolbyBug Covers make cloth diapering EASY.  Simply tuck and go.  Faster than stuffing a pocket diaper, more secure than just wrapping a regular cover over a prefold.  No pins or Snappi needed (though you can use them if you prefer!)  Perfect for daycare, grandparents, etc.

WolbyBug covers work perfectly with prefolds, flat diapers, contour diapers, "pod" diapers, disposable inserts, and cloth inserts made for "hybrid" diapers.

Sale!

Another great fabulous feature is the price!  Their regular price is just $10.99 each and this week only, shop for Wolbybug Covers and save 15% off when you order one at Cloth Diaper Outlet!
