Last night at 2am I woke up to the worst nausea ever accompanied by hot flashes. I was dead asleep, woke up because I was sweating like mad. I pushed the covers off my body and then immediately pulled my legs up to curl my body around my stomach. I thought I was going to vomit except I knew that I just felt like it.
I couldn’t fall asleep for quite a while. I didn’t want to get out of bed because I was afraid that I would throw up and I didn’t want to stay in bed because I was so uncomfortable. I clearly just didn’t know what to do. So, I laid there. Still. Curled up. Upset. Confused.
Eventually, I fell asleep again.
I’m guessing that these were side effects of the Letrozole. I’m on such a high dose: 7.5 mgs on CD3-7. I’m not surprised that I had some side effects. I’m surprised that it took until the last night for the side effects to hit me.
Now onto waiting for the LH surge. I start taking my ovulation predictor tests on the 10th.
Here’s to hoping that the nausea and hot flashes are over until I get a positive pregnancy test – at which point, I’ll (un)happily welcome those symptoms because it will mean I’m carrying a little one inside of me.
