Holy crap its amazing what those pills have done!! I barely contract at all anymore. I literally couldn't even walk out to check my mail without having a contraction and now I have maybe tops 3 a day. The only thing is I have to take them right at 6 hours or I start contracting again.
Luckily it seems that I have bypassed any major side effects. I was very scared to take them because I read and heard from a lot of people that the meds are hard on your body. The meds are really used for mostly elderly patients with high blood pressure. So naturally it makes you a little lightheaded and dizzy because it lowers your blood pressure. For the most part I dont feel any of that. Maybe a little lightheaded but nothing major. The meds act as a calcium channel blocker. Your uterus needs calcium to contract so it helps calm down those contractions by blocking those calcium channels.
In my opinion nothing is worse than clomid. Maybe after taking those "bitch in a bottle" pills nothing seems as bad!
I'm officially feeling HUGE! I've even gotten comments saying how huge I look and that they couldn't believe I was only 7 months. Most women get mad at those kinds of comments but not me! I'm just glad to be considered huge and not get the "Omg you are SO small" comments.
Last night Haven was chilling in my ribs. Most women get annoyed at this but I was excited! I cant believe my baby is big enough to be chillin in my ribs!!! What an awesome feeling! I also woke up feeling like a 300lb man. I imagined myself as Randy from "The Christmas Story" when his mom put him in so much clothes that he fell and couldn't get up. I was thinking to myself. I CANT GET UP! I CANT GET UP!
I'll take the heartburn, the poundage, the kicks in the ribs, the throwing up any day of the week. Its much more pleasurable then peeing on opks, seeing negative after negatives, and just hoping and wondering and praying that this was my month only to be crushed month after month. Or watching my baby suffer in a plastic box watching my baby kick air instead of my ribs. That pain is a whole hell of a lot worse and way more uncomfortable.
