Cycle 2, Day 12
It’s now CD12 and I’m continuing to seek out distractions as I anxiously await a LH surge. This cycle introduced clomid to my system, which has resulted in my doubting most normal ovulation signs. This drug has been helping me create a list of reasons why I would like to avoid using it for any extended period of time. Unpleasant symptoms have increased following my 5 days and the list now includes; disorienting hot flashes, nightmares, emotional breakdowns and other unpleasant reactions. An example you ask: I started to uncontrollably cry after my wife inadvertently hit a rather large Minnesota pot hole – Yes it was startling and noisy but my reaction was unprecedented and it continued for nearly a half hour.
In good news: I enjoyed making a thai themed dinner last night for a few close friends. My menu was inspired by a close friend who blogs here and who introduced me to the Laab appetizer. My Menu included:
Appetizer: Tofu Laab with lettuce wraps and mint dipping sauce.
Main: Thai Drunken Basil Noodles with Mock Duck.
Dessert: Mango on Coconut Sticky Rice.
