Shootin’ up a storm

So after a seemingly never-ending round of BCP’s, September 18th finally rolled around. And it was over with in a heartbeat.

I went in. Spoke to the nurse. She stabbed me in the stomach and charged me R900 for more of the same! I was feeling a bit weird after the first Lucrin shot, and got this disgustingly bitter taste in my mouth, but other than that, nothing major. Today I actually felt fantastic… until about six o’clock. That’s when the headache set in, and it is here to stay.

So far I am feeling quite good, not exactly optimistic, but not entirely pessimistic, either. I am trying to keep positive, but very scared to let hope in the door. Yes, I have started daydreaming again… Picturing myself in the mirror, rubbing my swollen tummy… laying under the trees on a picnic blanky with “The Embryo That Could”. (Okay, that was a bit weird! But you get my meaning…) At the same time I realise how very dangerous this type of thinking can be. Damnit.

Also, I have been keeping up with my mandatory 50 gajillion litres of water per day, and I must tell you that my skin is definitely thanking me. My bladder is using abusive four lettered hate words. It is a good kick start on the whole “living more healthily” angle that I have ranted about in the recent past. Plus the nurse says it gives my ovaries a fighting chance. And I’m all for that!

I still have to post the obligatory show of needles, but I am too tired and headachey to lay them all out, so you may just get a photo of the bucket which they came in 🙂 Oh, all right, I’ll lay them out all fancy! Don’t beg! It’s actually not that impressive because I don’t have the Menopur shots yet, so this will be like a preview, really. (Watch this space)

From the not-so-secret Garden, that’s all I have to report right now. You know what they say: “No news is good news.”

    Glad you are feeling “quite good”! Just take each day one at a time….

    Hang in there – it doesn’t sound liek you’ve had a fun go of it, but your attitude is so upbeat.

    You’re refreshing, and no news is definitely good news.

    I am in the last of my 2ww and I let hope in , then realized how damaging that could be, then moved on to self doubt and now am trying to work my way back to just being complacent – is that possible?

    woohoo, way to go on the shots!!

  5. Bea says:

    You’ll be stimming in no time – and then, hopefully, the headaches will subside. And then, hopefully, there’ll be that whole tummy-rubbing, picnic-blanket thing, but for real.

    Fingers crossed.

    It’s amazing how quickly time flies by when one is waiting for things to happen…
    Good luck, I have all my bits crossed for you and hope that this headache will be the last one.

    Let us do the hoping for you then! Because you know we all are!!! Sounds like you are really going through the wringer over there. Best wishes to you.

    Ugh…sorry about the headaches. I hope they’ve subsided! And, as JJ says, one day at a time. That’s the best we all can do, huh?

    wishing you the very best, Mands!

    I know exactly what you mean . . . feeling good, not exactly optimistic, but not entirely pessimistic either. I even told my SIL that I think I am really more optimistic than I let on. Wishing you the best!
