Blue and Yellow Purple Pills

I have no idea how that song entered my brain yesterday, but it did.  As I am singing in my head about everything I am against I realized that my life right now is one lyric of that song…”[But nothing compares to these] Blue and Yellow Purple Pills”

No lie, I have to pop 3 pills a day now and those are their colors.  Blue = BC, Yellow = Baby Aspirin, Purple = Prenatal.  It’s nothing “fun”, as the song suggests, but to me – nothing compares to MY Blue and Yellow Purple Pills because this stuff right here…this is the stuff that is preparing my body for the ultimate adventure.  I get to pop pills and get stuff injected into me, I get to shove some stuff in my nether regions…by the time I am all done my stomach and arms look like a pin cushion and I am a totally different person with all the stuff running through my body.  In a very very different way…my life is that Eminem song right now.

On a lighter note, today is mine and my Darlin’s 4 year anniversary.  We’ll be celebrating with a fancy schmancy dinner on Saturday.

Happy Anniversary, Darlin!  I have never loved you any more than I do, right this second, and I will never love you any less than I do, right this second.

Nervous Excitement…

I am getting very excited about starting in a few weeks…I know this because all week my dreams consisted of injections and twin babies and happiness.  Last night felt exceptionally real.  In my dreams I started my injections and I also acted the same exact way I did every day Joe gave me injections repeating “I hate this, I hate this, I hate this” and then “that wasn’t so bad” – No lie, I did this twice a day last time with Joe with the exception of one day where it really did hurt. A lot. I cried. A lot.  I’m going to try to avoid crying this time around but I really am a huge baby when it comes to needles…thank God I got a pro working that end of the medication for me 😉

Let me tell you, giving up caffeine has been terrible.  I never really realized how much it ruled my life until I cut it out completely and cold turkey.  I know last time I still had a little here and there but I want a good start to this cycle and have decided to cut out a few of my vices one at a time.  I hope with time and getting used to the lack of caffeine the morning headaches go away and hopefully I can stay up a little longer at night.  I have been falling asleep at 8:30 and sleeping all night! (Not that that is a bad thing, I just would like to finish watching a tv show one of these nights…)

I wonder what my lovely husband is planning for our anniversary, it better be good as I am praying this is our last anniversary a childless couple. Hint Hint, Darling…get on that!

Less than 4 weeks!

In less than 4 weeks we will be starting our next cycle! I almost forgot how much you can’t plan on planning because nothing happens when you think it is going to. 

Joe and I were planning on visiting my uncles and going to NYC for my birthday weekend but it looks like that weekend has the possibility of falling on a transfer day so I may have to bump my visit up a week…I think we just have to tell them it will be one of those weekends and we will know more in about a month or so.

So right now, I am planning on not planning anything after the end of March…nothing will go my way and I don’t want to get worked up over it because now I know how demanding this whole process is.

Today Joe is pricing out the medication at 3 local pharmacies that specialize in fertility medication…we knew of 2 already and just received the information on the 3rd last week.  I am going to apply for the 0% introductory fee Visa card just in case we need some additional funding.  My boss already knows that I will be an hour late every other day in a few weeks but I don’t know how many days off I need yet and won’t know until a day or two prior to taking the day(s).  I’m getting really hyped up for this! And it doesn’t hurt that my tatas will appear larger…they looked enormous compared to what I normally am last time…I guess that makes all the bruises and needle marks easier to deal with lol.

And to end this, I just received my 4 year anniversary present a month early from my wonderful husband, a new Nikon d3200…I bought the wu-1a wifi adapter for it and it is amazing, it is like a fricken shark with fricken laser beams on its head!  I am so ready to practice using it because I have a feeling I am going to be getting a LOT of use out of it in our own home soon ❤
