I have managed to upgrade from the beginners exercise calendar to the regular calendar. So glad I found this calendar. It’s been really motivating and it is really helping that an exercise plan is laid out for me without me having to think about it.
Unfortunately, I have started to suffer from Hot flushes. Really, really bad hot flushes. Especially at night. They are so horrible. It gets so hot and I break out into sweats. Normally, I would have thought they were part of the medication but I finished taking that weeks ago. We researched what it could be and decided to take a pregnancy test, just in case, and if it is negative go to the doctor to figure out where these are coming from.
The pregnancy test came back negative (no surprise it’s still a bit early, even for someone with a regular cycle), but I didn’t go to the doctor. A cyclone hit the coast so it was more advisable to stay inside, while we did we were looking at the effects of clomid and a lot of people got hot flashes starting weeks after they actually took the medication. Okay, so no issue here, just side effects. Really horrible side effects. I’m just hoping I’m not like the lady who had the hot flashes last for months.
I’m struggling to keep exercising at the moment. I’m really not feeling good. I’m not sleeping, feeling nauseated and still have the hot flashes. Going to stop exercising for the moment until I start improving. I don’t think the healthy living is doing much to help anyway.
Some people just know when they are pregnant. I am so not one of those people. Will do a pregnancy test at the end of nest week.
I’m starting to hope I’m pregnant just so I won’t have to go through these symptoms again. However, the very next day at Our Little Man’s playgroup to of the babies were looking at each other and then started holding hands. Nope, definitely want to be pregnant so we can have another little bubba.
As for the symptoms, I’m trying to take a mind over matter approach. And while they are still there I think they are lighter somewhat.
With the lack of exercise, my diet is starting to fail, and my eating is returning to what it was.
I was nervous about the pregnancy test and it seem rightfully so since it was negative. However, in some good news, the hot flashes have finally started to disappear.
