How wonderful is it that we have an entire day devoted to Pi? It’s one of the coolest things that I just found out about.
In IVF about to start land, I’ve forgotten 2 BCP and 2 Metformins this cycle, including the ones last night. Actually last night, I didn’t forget. I was just so tired that once I was in bed, I couldn’t make myself get back up to take the pills, no matter how important they were. Today, I was SO ANGRY and upset and frustrated (over nothing. really). that I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to stay at work. I’m really worried that if I already feel this emotionally distressed, and I haven’t even started stims yet, that things are going to be pretty awful this cycle, in terms of emotional health. Maybe I can get a prescription for calmness and happiness too. Does that come in a 1 X a day shot, like the PIO?
I only have 14 more days of BCP, then it’s time for stims starting on March 31. That seems so, so soon. I am haunted lately by the first IVF and its failure. I keep thinking of how maybe I did something wrong after the transfer–I really, really, really had to pee. It was so awful that I was almost in tears. Even using the bedpan didn’t help because I was so embarrassed and worried about overflowing the bedpan that I didn’t let enough pee out. Plus, I’d done the acupuncture, which (and I hope I don’t offend anyone here) felt silly to me, so I was covered in tiny pins, completely stressed about having to pee, and fighting back tears and shame all at the same time. Is that what made the embies not stick? What if that happens again? Can I ask to not drink all the water? My uterus is backwards (retro or something is the real word, but I forgot what the doc called it) Oh, the joys of infertility.
I think I’m going to watch Captain Kirk now. He can fix anything (eventually).
Oh, go check out Jay’s blog if you want some fun and happiness today. She’s so wonderful.
