A better day

September 26, 2008

Yesterday’s hormonal storm seems to be calming down. Luckily. I hate those days when I feel like a bag of emotional toxic waste and can’t control my feelings at all. Like yesterday while riding the bus to my graphic’s class, I had to fight with all my mental power the tears not to come. And I want to apologize to that trainee at Subway’s, I’m sorry I snapped at you because you tried to put tomatoes on my chicken teriaki sandwich when I had told you I didn’t want any. But that’s what infertile pms-bitches are like. Last two cycles were much better regarding the mood swings. Last month I didn’t have any of this shit.

I still have the cramps and I’m just waiting for AF to arrive but I’m feeling much better mentally. Ok, we didn’t succeed on the first round but we’ll move on to the next one. And maybe with some hormonal enhancements this time. I think the problem might be with implantation (either that or the fertilization), because I’m sure the ovulation part is working fine. So I’ll ask the doc could we add progesteron to the game since it should help the implantation process.

Yesterday’s graphic’s class was so therapeutic. Just what I needed; during those three hours I didn’t think about ttc for a second. I’ll post my new work as soon as I get it scanned!

I’m so glad it’s friday today and I have the weekend ahead of me. Today I’ll go see The other Boleyn girl with my cousin after work. It’s her first time out on her own after her son (my goodson) was born in April. Tomorrow one of our friends has a graduation party and I’m sure it’ll be a lot of fun :D! And we’ll also continue the filming of our horror movie tomorrow morning.

What comes to my endo-diet, I’ve slipped quite badly during the last few weeks. We’ve got a video rental place next to our workplace and you can buy candy pick’n’mix styled there. Needless to say, I’m a regular customer. Now that I started to think about it, maybe bringing chocolate back as a regular to my diet is causing the moodswings! Could it be?

And I’ll POAS tomorrow morning if AF hasn’t arrived before it. Just to make sure I can have my ciders with a peaceful mind.

Have a good weekend everyone, I’m gonna enjoy mine :)!



  1. Hi Emily,

    I am glad you are feeling a bit better and more perky. I have also been waiting for AF, so PMS and chocolate abound in my house! Good idea, about the progesterone. Implantation is often the issue with IVF it seems, generally the fertilisation isn’t the problem if you have the eggs. Each time you go through one of these treatments, even tho’ it sucks, the doctors find out more about your body, and make adjustments to the protocols and approach accordingly. It may seem like a long and winding road, but everyone’s body is different, so the learning curve for the doctor is different for each patient. Tally ho, for the next one. My specialist recommends a month in between for the body to recover, which I found quite helpful, because emotionally I think it helped me to be a touch more objective, rather than living month to month for each cycle. So have a nice rest – you’ve done your job now! Have a great weekend. I am curled up on the couch with my cat, with cramps, and its raining outside – the perfect weather to blog in!

    Coach Louise 😉
