Taking clomid while being pregnant


I was prescribed my first cycle of Clomid. I waited to take my first pill after my first day of my period. It looks like the light bleeding I had was not my period, I took the clomid, and now found out I was possibly pregnant when taking the clomid. ...

I like #2 for good friends.When I was only 5 weeks along I went on a girl's weeeknd that was planned before I found out I was pregnant. Normally not a big deal, but this one was planned as a wine tasting weeeknd (oops!). I tried the whole "I'm on a medication that requires me not to drink" bit - but both of my friends are incredibly nosy and one of them is a nurse who insisted on knowing what meds. I had a medication in mind, but she promptly told me I could drink small amounts on it and be fine (ughhh). Why can't people leave well enough alone sometimes??I ended up alone with my other girlfriend at the bar one night and ordered a N/A mixer. She adamantly refused to drink unless I got something and made things very awkward. I finally, angrily, told her why I couldn't drink and even though it was nice to have her in-the-know - I'm still annoyed that they couldn't just drop it.

I haven't technically started taking Clomid yet, but I was just given the prescription for the medicine and will begin taking it in November. I have been trying to conceive for almost 8 years now. I am already 26 years old and I am not ovulating, so my husband and I decided it was probably time to go ahead with this medication. I know what it is like to get very excited but feel let down by other methods we have used in the past tried to get pregnant. I am really nervous because my husband feels confident in this drug and I do not want him to be disappointed. Right now, we are both on vitamins--I am taking a prenatal vitamin and my husband is taking a multivitamin with extra zinc. Please pray for my family and send us your best wishes. I really hope to be pregnant by Christmas! What a wonderful present that would be.

After suffering from endometriosis for years, I was able to have a procedure done and was put on this medication. I have been on it for one year and still have not been able to get pregnant. I plan to continue using it until next year when I see my doctor again, at which time I am hoping he will increase my dosage. I realize that patience is a must with this type of treatment and that I cannot expect overnight results. I have a terrible time with hot flashes and slight abdominal cramping, but otherwise have suffered no major side effects.
