My sweet friend Ashleigh (who has gone through IVF several times and is doing it again) had the polyps removed from her uterus last week and she said that the surgery wasn’t a big deal and that I shouldn’t be worried at all. That made me feel better! Here’s the plan for the next few weeks:
– Aunt Flo should be coming to visit this week and then I’ll start taking birth control upon her arrival. I hate it when she comes to town. I know I should be welcoming, but…nobody is perfect.
– Monday, October 19th – surgery at 5:30 AM to remove the polys, followed by a nice, long nap and then probably popcorn and Corn Nuts. I asked for ranch Corn Nuts after my last two surgeries…
– Start injecting myself with Lupron on the 23rd. Let the joyful times begin.
In honor of the exciting times of injecting myself with lots and lots of needles, I converted our guest bathroom into my “drug lab.” During the last two IVF cycles, I started referring to that bathroom as my drug lab because there were so many needles and injections. So…I decided to make it official this time. I put up a sign that says, “Jenica’s Drug Lab: Makin’ Babies Since 2015.” It kind of makes me smile every time I walk into the bathroom. I have to keep humor in this situation. Life is too short to feel sorry for myself.
Oh, and you ask what Instagram is? Don’t ask. I forgot that by the time you read this you will probably be, like, telaporting to go talk to your friends.
You’re worth it,
