Today is my last day on Marvelon, the oh so despised birth control pill. Maybe that is why I am happier...perhaps my body knows this break up is reoccurring and is giving me a break as a reward. The three weeks have flown by and I am very happy to be graduating from this stage of the cycle.
I still have a while to go before the real action happens, that is the hopeful egg retrieval. That while also involves significant amounts of needle receiving. I have decided that when it comes to the needles, I really just need to worry about each one as it comes. I must avoid peaking in the needle bag or calculating how many pokes remain at all costs.
I am nervous, stressed, scared and excited.. this whole process is feeling more real every day.
In an attempt to continue to plan things to help cope with the stress I have begun to ponder Christmas baking. I have hinted in past that the kitchen and I do not exactly have a solid relationship. This is just going to have to change. Time to do some digging for some delicious wheat free baking options. Google-ing here I come!
