Its Thursday...Life Continues

A couple of things today ladies (and possibly hidden gentlemen that I'm unaware of...):

- Thank you for all of your support this week, it has been immensely helpful!  No hiccups with the clinic and we are making our IVF cycle payment on Monday...FINALLY. I can't wait to finalize all of this since Lupron injections begin in 8 days and 15 hours! Financially we are back on track, but I'm basically grounded from spending any money outside of bills right now. Trust me, it's 100% self-imposed. And deserved. No worries, I have a 4 lb bucket of Red Vines at home waiting for me for comfort. And a billion cake balls to make tonight and tomorrow. First-timer here. I'll try to take pictures tonight!

- An attorney I work with, who is a very nice older gentleman from NY (though I'm not sure that age or birthplace has anything to do with this) just said, "I don't know. That sounds a little queer to me."  I can't remember the last time I heard that word used in its proper context of, "odd or strange". How refreshing in this day and age of hatred and prejudice. I just thought I would share that with you.

Here is some TMI. You are welcome to skip below if you are not interested. It will not hurt my feelings:

- I have been on BCPs for exactly 4 weeks and 1 day now and only taking the active pills. I am technically on CD32 (I had to count those days up on the calendar to be sure) and my body is demanding that I have a period. I swear. The mood swings, the deep desire for all things sugary, salty and chocolatey (is that a word?). Also, the spotting and cramping kind of tipped me off. Nurse Jackie told me that if I begin bleeding and it is red, I'll need to double up on the pills by taking 1 in the morning and one at night, both with food. I take one at night right now with all of my other pills, just for the record. Sunday I was crampy. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I had pink/brown CM. Today I am SUPER crampy and have had the strangest stuff go on but I haven't had a full-on red bleeding session. It's like I'm in the middle of a raging AF based on my cramps, but at the same time the "output" is more like only the stuff I get at the beginning and the end of an AF: pink, rusty and brown. I have been keeping Nurse Jackie in the loop and find myself amazingly unashamed about emailing her about my CM color. Unreal. Am I so deep in this IF stuff that I'm okay with putting all of this in an email and sending it to a nurse? A woman who hardly knows me? Oh well. For this kind of money I'd tell just about anyone the details of what's coming out of my "muffin". Lol....Lady Gaga. Glee. Idina. Too funny. Her concert was great, but you had to be there. Lol...

Back on track, I guess I'll just deal with the cramps and the continued pantiliners. But have any of you ladies had breakthrough bleeding with the BCPs for IVF? Trust me I'm not panicking because I was given a plan for everything (right up my alley for my Type-A personality) it's just that I was hoping I wouldn't bleed at all. It reminds me so much of when I was pregnant and would constantly check the tp. So strange to be on BCPs and hoping I don't bleed when I did the same thing while pregnant. Sigh....

And for some fun, I thought I would continue with the laughs - here are some more random funnies that I've enjoyed lately:

I have been enjoying for some time now and this was on it.
I know I'll sound old or something but...what is "Four Loko" Drunk?
I haven't been a drinker for 3 years so I'm a bit out of the loop.
Also I'm a novice at FB. And no I'm not FB Friends with my parents.
They barely know how to use their laptop.

I am SO glad they don't have these here.
Could you imagine the IFers being tempted by these during the 2WW? My goodness....


Um...are the inflatable decorations weight down the house? It looks like its sinking.


Aaaand where's the house? There's America for you. No wait.....HERE'S America for you:

I'm quite sure she is a "fertile". And is quite lazy. Or in a hurry?
I still don't know what to think about this one.

You crack me up! Especially with the pics! Try not to worry about the bleeding. I'm sure you'll have a regular period once you come off the BCPs. Mine ended up being pretty heavy after I came off of them. As long as your ovaries and E2 are staying suppressed, you're all good. Good luck!

No idea about the break-through bleeding, or kind of bleeding, remember me? I'm the one who COULDN'T bleed!?! That's nice you can email with your nurse. My clinic's policy is no emailing with the patients so I'm not quite sure why they advertise the email addresses to begin with. Yes, you get to a point that you talk about your discharge, your cramps, your follicles, sperm, eggs, all that stuff that used to be hush hush and you don't even think twice about it. How exciting that shots are starting soon!!!
