Day 5 - Just be Normal.

Surprise, surprise I was a bitchy Betty again today.  I think I've cried the past three days in a row.  Awesome.

Tower had to go down to the Fertility Center to do his Cystic Fibrosis test.  We will get the results in about 10 days.  By the time we get the results it will be too late to change the way we are doing this cycle.  If he tests positive for the Cystic Fibrosis gene and we need to do a second cycle, we will have the option to do genetic testing of the embryos before implantation.

It is becoming kind of a pain of the ass to get my shots in at a specific time.  Tonight I had to pre-mix my Menopur before leaving the house and inject myself in the car on the drive to meet friends for dinner.  On the bright side, I am definitely getting more comfortable with the process.  I am taking great care to follow my protocol to a T while maintaining as normal of a life as possible.

I have not cut out caffeine or vodka yet (nor have they told me to).  I am not an over indulger in either, but a little nip of both on the semi-regular probably keeps me more even-keel than without it.  I have been making play dates with girlfriends to engage in the occasional vent session and just as important - to hear what's going on in their lives - the drama and dates.  I am also proud to report that I am keeping up the workout regime I had in place before beginning this process.  For me sweating is so key in maintaining my mood.  It also helps me feel better about injection filled gut.

........keep on, keeping on.
