So before I got pregnant with my son, I had trouble ovulating. My cycle wasn’t that regular, and I would take ovulation tests to determine when I do, and I wouldn’t get a positive. I’m sure I would ovulate certain months, but not every cycle. My doctor gave me Clomid to induce ovulation when we were ready to try, and that helped me. Maybe too much because I was hyper stimulated and in pain, but it helped me to get pregnant so I didn’t mind!
Last month, around ovulation time, I experienced a lot of discomfort. I actually cried one night because the pain was getting intense, I was incredibly bloated, and the scale went up a few pounds. It went away pretty quickly. Once again, I am ovulating, and the discomfort is worse than any cramps I used to get with my period, which were bad. The scale went up three pounds, my lower abdomen is very bloated, I have a lot of headaches. I know that it will pass in a couple of days, but it’s so strange to be experiencing these symptoms now after all these years. I wonder if losing weight is helping me to ovulate regularly, and if so, I wonder why I feel it SO strongly? Maybe it's because I had a baby? I have worse pain now than with my period, it’s strange! Has anyone else experienced the same since losing weight? I am happy to be ovulating on my own, I hope that continues until we try for another baby!
