Day 33 – Crampy
Today’s intention is to relax!
Today, I have pretty awful cramps. I got a good amount sleep and ate an iron-filled breakfast, so am hoping to feel better soon. I can’t take medicine right now due to the impending injections, so I will just use heat and take it easy. I am surprised that my period is this heavy considering I just had my period 2 weeks ago. I am hoping it means that my body is ready for IVF. Cramps always make me a little short-tempered, so I will do my best to not stress about anything.
On to the fun stuff, we are visiting my twin brother and his fiancé and two of my best friends are also here. They are running a mudrun today, and I am here to cheer them on and take pictures. I wish I could compete with them, but I will have to wait until next year for that opportunity. After the run, we will be celebrating my BFs birthday- I can’t wait!
On the bright side, all this fun is a great distraction from injection night. I feel ready – I brought plenty of medication with me as well as extra needles. I have read through the injection directions a few times and feel confident that I will get it right. More to come tonight!
I am grateful for a very fun weekend with many of my favorite people; my loving hubby; my Kahli-bear; IVF; my fabulous parents – both sets; and, my health!
Day 3 – What’s in your handbag?
I don’t carry a purse very often, but when I do, it has my wallet, iPhone, work phone, lip gloss or Chapstick, a small mirror, and a pen and paper.
I love and accept myself!
