On the Second Day of Menopur…

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012.  CD8.

…I think I injected a tiny air bubble into my belly, and now have a golf-ball-sized knot on my abdomen.


I did so well yesterday!

But today?

Today, I seem to have misplaced my big-girl panties.


I am also exhausted.  Is this a normal side-effect?  And the dizziness… Oy!  I’m dizzy even when I’m sitting!

Not.  Fun.

Just a few more days, though.  I can do this!

In other news, the husband and I found out today that we are getting another nephew in December, and friends of ours are expecting twins in the spring!  Hooray for babies!

…Hopefully someday someone will cheer for me like that, lol.

I told a friend today, if I get pregnant, I am not only throwing myself a freaking parade, I am also going to gold-plate that pee-stick and wear it around my neck like Flava Flav.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah boyyyyyyyyyyeeeee!

If any of you are stopping by from ICLW – welcome!

I don’t always complain so much, lol.

…Okay, sometimes I do.  😉

Let’s be honest though, this whole infertility thing can inspire some monumental reasons to bitch.  Let’s all do it together!  🙂

Happy Tuesday, friends!  May your bellies be filled with babies and not fertility medications!

    I HATE THE AIR BUBBLES! My husband once COMPLETELY forgot to get rid of any air and I could feel the air going into my stomach… then I felt the bubbles for another 20-30 minutes. Freaky!

    Can’t wait to see your BFP pee stick necklace when the time comes! 🙂

    The first time I injected myself, I panicked about the air bubble and called the emergency line at my clinic, sure I killed myself ( apparently, that is only when you do it in a blood vessel….and I should not get my knowledge about air bubbles from Christopher pike novels).

    Love the bfp necklace idea!

    Totally normal, I think.

    I was dizzy for a good 30 minutes after menopur, and as a life-long insomniac I was completely startled to suddenly have the sleeping habits of a newborn kitten.

    I always thought the one thing Flava Flav was missing was pee.

    Gold plated pee stick! I love how you think! When I got my first positive opk I wanted to frame it. Hubs didn’t agree!

    Hi from ICLW!
    We are journeying into an IVF cycle soon, and if it works I’m totally planning on announcing my pregnancy wearing a “my doctor knocked me up” T shirt. 🙂

    I’m just reading through all of your posts, and I’m so thankful that you’re so candidly sharing your experience! Thank you for giving me a fiend through all of this, and for providing a sense of humor and reality to a crappy situation!

      Thank YOU! I honestly would not be able to do this every day without the support of complete strangers, lol. I know that sounds crazy, but you all understand so much more than people I’ve known for 20 years!

      It really is a blessing to have this community to turn to when things get hard…
