Kind of a blah day.
Came home from work early hoping to catch up on some sleep to kick this cold. As ridiculous as it sounds given what I’m doing to get pregnant, I actually am very anti-medication. I hardly ever take anything (well, again, aside from all these IF meds). Last night I caved and took some nose spray so I could breathe. Still ended up waking up around 4 all congested. So while the cl.omid side effects are gone, I still can’t freaking sleep.
Had a really hard time with my f.ollistim injection last night. It was almost as if the needle was dull, I couldn’t get it to pierce the skin and then when I did, it really hurt. As long as it all got in there and works though I’ll be ok. I really hope I’ve still got 4 growing at a decent size when I go in tomorrow. Although I don’t know how you ivf ladies do it, my right side already feels uncomfortable, like someone is pinching me on the inside.
Wish I had something more exciting to post about, but everything is just blah here.
This is probably a waaayyy TMI post, even for those of us who share d.ildoc.am details 😉
AF arrived in the middle of the night. It was a lovely moment when I realized that at that particular moment in time, my ears were the only orifice that was not oozing bodily fluids. Lovely image, I know.
I managed to sleep for about 4 hours last night, so I’m just lounging away in bed. Trying to do some work but it’s just not happening. I have kept down the 5 saltines I had for brekkie around 9. So I’m counting that as a success.
I am SO glad AF didn’t show up until today. I just looked at the calendar and if she had shown up yesterday, I would have been shooting up first at concert on Thursday and then at N.obu on Saturday for my friend’s 30th birthday party (which I am SOOO excited for). While I’m fairly certain that it would not be the first time the bathroom at the 9:30 C.lub saw a syringe (local ladies can probably back me up with that) but I still wasn’t feeling it. Seems like I’d just be begging for some sort of infection…or someone wanting me to share and not believing me when I repeatedly tell them, “it’s not what you think”. I would have been alright up in NY, just seems kinda rock star to do it there….plus I can’t help but think that their bathroom would be cleaner. But now I don’t have to worry about that….and I’m so glad!
Ugg…meds just arrived and are not helping the nausea. Going to take a nap instead of dealing with them, keep your fingers crossed that those crackers stay down!
First injection done!
Whew! I managed not to psych myself out too much. Had a little bit of a problem drawing it out of the vial and lost a little (is it bad that I wanted to lick it off my counters???) Injection itself didn’t hurt at all, but I totally get why so many of you call it Folli-sting.
Thanks for all of your pep talks and advice. I iced myself all up and also put the needle in the fridge.
Off to watch good tv (and maybe have some ice cream too….I earned it, right??)
