of sneezes and hormones

I feel like shit today because I do believe I caught a cold from Brett. So now both of us feel like shit and unfortunately the dogs are incapable of doing things like grocery shopping and snow shoveling. According to my favorite weather man, Tom Skilling, we will be inundated with another few inches of snow tomorrow. Mother fucker.

I did go to the GYN yesterday and he was encouraged that I have about a 75% chance of being pregnant in the next few months. This is good. He also thought that if my cycle doesn't return (it went away because of the Lupron) by April 15th, he'll start me on Clomid. Anybody ever taken this drug? I'm curious if there are any fun side-effect to this one, becuase I so enjoyed the side-effects from Lupron (sarcasm there).

In other news, my jeans are looser today. I'm happy about this but think it may be do to the hormone changes (coming off of Lupron) and not anything I'm doing. We haven't worked out since last year. Granted last year was only two weeks ago, but still. I don't think I'll be working out until next week given my sudden onset sickness. Once again, mother fucker. All the good intentions I have about health and fitness tend to get over shadowed by LIFE. Stupid annoying LIFE. If I can't keep up with it now, I don't know how I'll deal when there's a little one, but we'll work on that when and if it happens.

I also already started doing my taxes, which means two things: (1) I'm a nerd; and (2) mama needs a new pair of everything.

All my good intentions about health and fitness get screwed up by life as well. But yay for the 75% chance! I know nothing about Clomid.

I took Clomid to conceive Eli, and while many people I know said it turned them into a raging bitch, I felt perfectly normal on it, and also conceived within the first cycle. I WAS on the lowest dosage, I should point out, the drug in my case prescribed to correct my hormone levels in general rather than to cause ovulation, so you might get a higher dosage. But still, in my experience I would give it two thumbs up.

I WANT to start doing my taxes, but we don't have our W-2s yet, so we CAN'T. Grr.
