I went to the clinic on Friday and it looks like my ovaries are working equally for the first time ever. I have 3 follicles on each side measuring 0.8, 0.7, 0.5. It’s been said that I should be having the IUI’s at the end of this week, however nothing goes exactly as planned so I won’t be surprised if I’m having the IUI’s at the beginning of next week.
I started Bravelle on Friday night and I’m feeling insane. When my husband starts to talk, I literally need to take a couple of breaths to calm myself down because I am instantly irritated. And then when he’s quiet, I get upset that he doesn’t want to talk to me. And then I cry. I know I’m being a crazy person, and even as I’m writing this down, I know I need to calm myself down and just be normal…. and then Cody will say something to me and all I will think is “Why is his voice so friggen loud?!”
Ladies – Bravelle is not pretty.
I’m going to guess that I’m being extra crazy because I’m injecting pure hormones into my body. And with that, my body is tired from growing so many eggs. It’s been a long time since I’ve pumped any of this stuff into my system, so I’m sure that has something to do with the increase in “Just shut up!”‘s I’ve spit out. It may also be contributing to the visions I’ve had of smacking some people. I really have no patience or tolerance… for anything. Funnily enough, I wouldn’t have the energy to smack anyone – I’m exhausted and have a perpetual headache.
I hope the mood swings are all worth it this month. I mean, the number of follicles is really good. I just hope they are all continuing to grow and that the extra supplements I’m taking are going to help the egg quality and all that stuff. I’ll find out the progress on Tuesday… and then I just hope I can make it through my 5 hour shift without wanting to slap the shit outta my boss.
Wish me luck!
