Clomid is a medication with some very nasty side effects. Patients shouldn't take it more for than a few months. Maybe check with your doctor to see if you could use an ovulation induction medication that has less side effects...suggest Femara.

Oh my gosh, I feel so bad ranting about that after hearing about your story. I don't know what I'd do if it was just me ALL the time. My DH at least can help me when he is home, and he does help. I guess I just gte nervous, anxious and frustrated sometimes. I feel like the only one that gets so frustrated with my kids. I imagine myself being pregnant again, and with another newborn, but then I think about my older two and get nervous about it also. I felt like our family wasn't complete after my daughter's birth also. I guess time will tell. I might just go off of the Clomid for a while to give myself a break from that at least. Thanks for responding!

I can sympathize with you because for the past year and a half I have been flip flopping on whether I want a third or not. My husband has ALS and is loosing his mobility more and more every day (he is in a wheel chair now) and I am the only one taking care of him, our 2 kids, the house, the pets etc. I get 0 breaks and I know having another is a lot to put on myself. For a while we decided our family was complete and so I gave away all of my LO's baby things. However, baby fever keeps coming back up and I just can't get rid of it. I feel like we're not done. This is our last chance to have another and I just feel like we are meant to. I know it will be hard sometimes but I know we can do it and that we won't regret our decision. I can't tell you if you should have another or not. I think that decision is up to you and your husband. YOU know how you feel about this better than anyone else. You have a lot to take on and all of those factors weigh into it. The mood swings from your medication I'm sure aren't helping you to know how you really feel about it too. Definitely talk it over with your DH and see how he feels about it too. Best of luck to you with your decision. I know it's a tough one. Follow your heart.
Proud wife and stay-at-home mom. Trying for our 3rd and final!

Hi, I am a mother of two wonderful children, ages 5 and 2. and also step mom to a 10 yr old who only lives with us every other weekend. My DH and I have been TTC #3 together for 11 months now. The last few months I have been having a lot of anxiety(I was on Prozac from the time my youngest was 8 weeks old until just the last few months.) I have anxiety and frustration when it comes to my children. I love them to death but some days I just can not handle it. My DH are on the same shift(which is 2nd) but there are days when I am off and he is at work and vice versa. So it feels like its always one of us against the other two. My son was just diagnosed with ADHD and we have been dealing a lot with his behaviors. Ok so we were dead set on having another child, Dec 2011 came and I had missed 3 periods, tests were all neg. I finally went to the doctor and he told me I have PCOS. I conceived my other two children naturally, although it took 11 months with both. So this is my third month of Clomid and I am on the highest dose, 150 mg. I know a lot of my moods come from the medicine but I don't know what to do about it. So now here I am, CD 17 and the last few days I have had terrible moods and I just don't know what to do now. As my kids were yelling at me in the van this evening I wondered to myself, is this even the right thing to do. Am I fit to have another child(or two, as twins is a risk with clomid). Can I handle another child?? I know this is stuff i should discuss with my DH but as he is at work right now I am turning to you, other moms for advice. Sorry for the rant...a lot of emotions going through me right now.....Thanks!
