… just a spoonful of sugar

… helps the medicine go down.






a (strawberry) cupcake, a (“very sweet”) Tazo Tea, and my bud. I’d say it was a successful day. 🙂

I don’t even remember the last time I blogged… not sure what I’ve updated on but. Regardless. I started a new medication on Sunday – double the dose of what I was on last time… It’s funny how just when you think you have a handle on things, what will happen.

The meds are to increase the maturation of my eggs. I requested a double dose because I wanted to be able to “drop” as many eggs as I possibly could so we could have a better shot of conceiving. Hopefully more than one egg will be courted & successfully implant so we won’t have to go through this again. Maybe. Plus, I’ve always wanted multiples so it would be extra special.
Anyway, over the past couple of years for sure, I’ve gotten really good at managing my emotions and responses. So, when I feel a shift in my emotions or mood, I will literally have to stop what I’m doing and take a mental 5 sec. time out to work through the “shift”and get back on track.  Then, I’ll make a sort of PSA: “…. Thomas, my mood is shifting…” that gives us both a heads up. I am extra intentional about not allowing feelings/circumstances to take charge and trump logic & being patient. He knows to be a bit more aware of his tones, responses… Really, I’m not sure what he thinks when I warn us, it seems as if he’s more patient. So, things go pretty well. Usually.  So now, with the double doses of EXTRA hormones, I REALLY have to work at it. So far, we’re good. No shifts or swings that have gone awry just yet!

We have an ultrasound to see what our little follicles look like & to plan the trigger shot (THANKS, C!! Love you til the end!) & IUI. …
By the way. I’m incredibly curious to see my follicles/eggs while they’re still in my ovaries. And, I want to take a picture of them.  At the very least – I’d like to SEE them on the little monitor. At this point, I’m not sure if I would take even the most polite “I’m sorry but it’s against policy…” because I want to know/see what’s going on. Hopefully, with a stern, no nonsense tone – they’ll oblige. Plus, they owe me and unless they want me to complain AGAIN….. lol. Just kidding. Kinda.

Meanwhile, I have not completed not ONE project I’ve started and it’s starting to stress me because I don’t have the time to sit and work on them for any length of time – which is how I like to do it. Meaning, I don’t have time to complete them. Nothing bothers me more than unfinished business. Hopefully, by the time school has started, things will be more in order! I have about two more weeks… I’m excited to get things done and see the finished products! Should be loads and loads of fun! 🙂

…. here’s to the sweet stuff that helps us deal with the business of life.
