Having a hard time

This has been a rough week so far. I don't really want to complain, but I can't help it. I just don't feel well. I've had a headache every day, and Tylenol won't make it go away. I feel tired and very irritable. I know it's the extra hormones, but that doesn't make me feel any better. I've had a few moments where I almost start crying, too. I'm not talking about crying at a sad movie or a sad story. I'm ready to cry over silly things. I also hurt myself last night with my needle. I couldn't get it to go in, and I managed to give myself half a dozen bruises on the left side of my stomach. I'm looking quite lovely today.

I'm hanging in there, though. I just have to remind myself why we're doing this.

Hormones suck. Hang in there - we are all there for you.

Huge hugs, Wendy. If you feel like complaining, this is the place to do it. We are here for you, okay? IVF and all those meds are no walk in the park and you need to let it all out.

For my last cycle, we had to start doing injections in my thighs because my belly got too bruised and sore. Then my thighs bruised too. LOL. Hoping to make you smile a little. (:

Hang in there!! You can do this!!!

Sorry it's been a rough week. I think we all have those moments, at least I know I do. Sometimes I feel resentful that I have to go through all of this when others don't and then 5 minutes later, I'm thankful that I can go through this. Stupid hormones.

Just keep the goal in mind!
