2dp3dt-Progesterone is Still My New Best Friend

Today feels like a good day, so far. I'm feeling better-much more so than in past days. I think that the bloating is finally going down........I think that the progesterone is making me.....uh......well, let's just say that it's not fun to go to the bathroom. Within the past two days, I ate an entire bag of Whole Foods sliced apples, as well as a container of celery (didn't eat the carrots, don't like 'em) packed in water. I don't know what it is, but I crave foods with lots of water in them, tomatoes, apples, celery. I guess it's my body telling me that it needs more water. Holy crap, those apples were GOOD.......well, if that doesn't help, nothing will!

It reminds me of a prior post that Cat wrote about the lovely word play on the wonders of fertility medications. So, here's another one:

Progestipation-lack of digestive "movement" due to the massive amounts of progesterone surging throughout your body and, conveniently, slowing down your digestive tract.

Heh. Feel free to add your own. I've been told by my mother to get used to this, if I do get pregnant..........greaaaat. Can't wait.

Today M can't do my PIO shot, because she has to stay late at the hospital for some meeting, so I had to ask my mother-in-law to come over. Yes, I know, I said that I wasn't going to involve her, but sometimes M can't always be here on time to do the shots. And, my mother is over an hour away. And I'm not about to let Sean near my ass with a needle. Plus, my parents and his dad knew that we were doing the cycle, and I felt slightly guilty-especially if this works and we do get pregnant, she might get upset that she was the only one that didn't know. Sean didn't even have to remind her to keep it quiet-right away, she told him that he doesn't need to worry, she was only going to tell Big C (her husband) and that's it. I guess she finally gets it.

Anyway, I feel good today, good enough to possibly venture out for a bit. I'm still a little sore, and can't do sudden movements (like I really want to, anyway), but it's all good.

So far

you could always eat some prunes...


and hey - you coming in on Saturday for the premiere and pod cast? I'm dragging Narda along, too.

AND, I'm buing 4 tickets for the midnight showing on THURSDAY night, which is really midnight Friday, but that shit confuses me...

Wanna come? Should I buy 5 or 6 tickets?

Me too the progesterone is killing me. I'm off to buy some prunes this evening, that's for sure.

Have fun with your MIL!
