I am so uncomfortable. I will be so happy if this is my last night of injections (other than the trigger shots (yes, shotS (Plural)). Other than barely being able to wear underwear due to the extreme swelling/bloating in my abdomen, now my breasts (specifically, my thermometers ;)) can barely be touched by my shirt. Hormones, man, hormones.
I can’t believe I’m nervous about my scan tomorrow too. It will be 24 hours between today’s and tomorrow’s, yet I’m still worried that something is going to be wrong. Is this normal? Should I be this freaked out at all times? I’m pretty sure it’s normal from what I’ve read on other blogs.
And do you know, in the middle of all this uncomfortable, untouchable, crazy-minded stuff I’m going through… I really miss sex? We had very careful sex this past weekend, but that was difficult to do because I could feel my ovaries aching. We were cautious because when we had sex during IUI’s, we must have knocked one of my swollen, droopy ovaries and I ended up on the bathroom floor for 30 minutes thinking I might have to go to the hospital. Ouch. Yet, I’m still wanting some! You see, one of my symptoms of PCOS, which is caused by my higher than normal male hormones, is a crazy awesome sex drive. I’m talking 4-5 times a week is pretty standard. Now it’s been one time in almost three weeks? Whew. Tough times. 😉
If someone had told me growing up that I’d be attempting to make a baby without sex, I would have laughed and laughed… and laughed….
Actually, it is kind of amusing when you think about it…. right?
