Next week. Next week I start meds for IVF #2! It’s funny. I’m really looking forward to this cycle. If I hadn’t taken a break before this cycle, I would have jumped right in again and there wouldn’t have been time to build up anticipation. It would have all been so routine. And I needed to get out of that rut. Lupron starts next Saturday! I’m starting at a lower dosage than I have before. Maybe I won’t be as loopy on it this time.
In other news…speaking of being loopy, these BCPs are driving me nuts. I’m bloated (I look 3 months pregnant). I’m irritable (snapped at my amazing husband over something really stupid). And I’m spotting. TMI alert. Although it’s light in quantity, the spotting is very dark reddish-brown. Not easy to ignore. I skipped my week of non-active pills and started a new pack for week 4 last Tuesday. Then the spotting started last Thursday. I’m sure my body is like Woah, aren’t we supposed to let AF in for a visit? I just hope it stops soon. It’s totally inconvenient. I guess I’d rather deal with AF because at least I know she’ll be definitely gone after 4 days. And it makes me want to avoid doing the deed because it’s messy and gross, plus I generally feel gross. But our doing the deed days are numbered! Before I know it my ovaries will be the size of grapefruits!
Oh well. I only have 2 weeks and 3 days left of BCPs. (But who’s counting?) I can handle this. I can DO this!
