Starting a New Cycle

Today is officially CD1. She showed up this morning on my first bathroom trip. At least she didn't wake me up in the middle of the night, right? I hate her arriving at 2:00 am (or some other unsavory hour of the night) and then having to jump up and run to the bathroom. Not to mention the light has to get turned on as it would not be just a regular bathroom break. Anywho...

If you didn't read my Happiness Is post then you missed the fact that I almost completely forgot about my Clomid prescription! Ack! How does any good IF girl forget something like that? Well, I got that bad boy filled this morning and will start taking it Friday. Maybe we can eek out more than 1 eggie this cycle and get lucky. Keep the fingers crossed for me.

Of course along with AF comes the cramps and the fatigue. I actually fell asleep on the bus this morning. It's a rare occasion for me to sleep in the morning on the bus. The afternoon is my nap time. :-) I took 3 extra strength tylenol this morning and my legs still hurt and I still have some cramping. Will have to break out the motrin in a little while I guess.

We have the Little Guy's first baseball practice this evening. I am getting off the bus at the first stop (oh please let me remember that!) because practice starts at 6:00 and I can make it there by then if I get off the bus a little earlier than usual. I love it that he went straight from basketball to baseball. It's such a busy but fun time of year for us. He's excited about it, too. Especially since BJ has been taking him to the batting cages and he's hitting more and more balls. We just need to work on his catching and his actual knowledge of the game. He's had the same coach the last 2 years (a friend of BJ's) that hasn't really taken the time to teach the game to the kids. Other than to run to first after they hit. So hopefully he'll get some good teaching this year. I try to tell him things but I'm a "parent" so therefore I'm just picking on him and I have no idea what I'm talking about. :-)

I'm going to go outside today at lunch since the sun is shining again and it's going to be in the mid 60's. I love this weather. I can't wait until it gets really warm and I can wear sandals and capris!

Sorry about cd1 :(. I hate when AF arrives in the middle of the night, and I prefer first thing in the morning - that way you don't get surprised halfway through the day. Hope the cramps get better soon.
Enjoy baseball practice tonight!
