Today is day 5 of our stims (17 days total on meds this round) and we have our first check-in appointment tomorrow am! Mike is moonlighting and historically I can not sleep when he works nights. When I say “can not sleep”, I mean pop a Benadryl and still toss and turn all night type of CAN NOT SLEEP. It’s 11:15 and I’m usually passed out by 9:30 so it’s looking like I won’t sleep tonight. I’m gonna go ahead and assume Benadryl is a no no while IVF-ing.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated everyone. Let’s see, I started taking 20IU of Lupron on June 25th which gave me headaches, insomnia and hot flashes so I now know what menopause will feel like. Good times. We decided to give up caffeine this cycle which contributed to the headaches and also proved how addicted I was.
Confession: : I may or may not have stood outside of a Starbucks today just to smell the coffee. Sick, I know.
My name is Lex and I
was am was addicted to coffee.
FYI my husband is a saint for dealing with me and my moods through all of the above.
