Starting Clomid advise please!

My husband and I have been trying for a second child together ( he has one from previous relationship). We have been trying for 8 months and my OBGYN recommended I start Clomid if this month doesn't work. I am nervous about trying it with the worry of twins, although it would not be the worst thing to happen. Does anyone have any guiding words or suggestions for taking this. It's hard to talk to friends about this issue when they are not in this situation. I figured I would ask my fellow glow users who may be going through the same thing! Thank you in advance and BABYDUST to all!!
