Hormones, Hunger and Horns

So, last night when I told my husband he was injecting me with 4 vials of the baby juice (AKA Bravelle) he made a funny comment that had us both cracking up...

Me: You know there's 4 vials in that thing? I'm getting all juiced up.

Matt: (laughing) Oh man. We're gonna wake up tomorrow morning and I'm going to go "Good morning honey!" and you are going to have horns and say "F*** YOU!"

And then we both doubled over in laughter. At least we can laugh about it right?? :)

The daily shots of hormones combined with the oral steroid is quite the cocktail. I actually haven't been too "rage-y." Which is good :) Although, my biggest side effect is headaches and HUNGER. Oh my goodness, seriously since last Friday when we started the shots I have been SO hungry! And every single night since Friday I've been craving (and have given in to that craving) chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream! From a local store here. They make the best ice cream, but this one flavor in particular, it's like I HAVE TO HAVE IT :) Or maybe it's just all in my head and it's my comfort food through this whole process! Either way, I might be a whale by the time this is all over...



Thank you for all your advice on my last post!!! Today I'm feeling a little crampy so Im hoping that means something's cooking in there!!! I'm just trying to stay positive and hope that tomorrow's appointment brings some good news...

oh boy I remember the hunger before my retrieval....I was eating more than my hubby (who is one of these people that can eat more than his 200lbs buddies and not gain a pound)...I put on nearly 10lbs before there was any baby weight!

Oh my god, you said ice cream from a certain local store here and I thought of Stewarts and then I thought about their cotton candy ice cream that is my favorite and no one makes it like they do. And now I can't have any. (Don't worry. I will still eat ice cream!)

Ok, now I want raw cookie dough...

Pretty sure my husband secretly sought divorce adivce during our IVFs... ;)

(I'm kidding. We have a great marriage and he's awesome. But I don't think anyone would have blamed him--I could swing the whole gauntlet of emotions in about 5 minutes.)

Hoping the juice is doing its job!!!

Hey, of all the times to spoil yourself this is IT. I have a weakness for chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream too...now it's all I can think about!!

Praying for good news today...

I love a sense of humour - it is how we have to get through all of this. If you can't laugh then what can you do, right?? How did the appt go???

I am so excited that you're really doing it! Also, I think giving into your craving is just fine...you have an awesome excuse.

Lunch maybe next weekend?
