A List of Nothing....

I really have nothing to say. So, I will just give you a list of nonsense....

  • I am halfway through the 12 day wait. Monday is the big day.
  • I am spending the 2ww working on quilting baby blankets for twins. They were conceived by some friends of ours via IVF 'round two.
  • Progesterone suppositories are gross.
  • I have a vial of follistim in my fridge.... I hope I get to donate it!
  • I am actually hungry! It feels like a miracle after being on Metformin for four months. I have been craving Chipotle for DAYS!
  • I think my in-laws might come for the weekend.
  • If my MIL makes a stupid comment about our lack of offspring, I might loose it. But, my temporary loss of sanity can be blamed on the progesterone I previously mentioned.
  • I started watching 'Brothers & Sisters' on Netflix. I LOVE it!
  • I have convinced myself that any "symptom" that I currently have is because of the progesterone. I am trying SO hard not to read into anything :)
  • I can't stop eating peanut M&Ms.
  • I need some book recommendations. I am currently at the bottom of the stack I have been chipping away at over the last year. Once I finish 'Love Walked In' I don't know what I am going to read.
  • I miss the gym. Perhaps I will head back this week for some walking or bike riding!
  • Even though I hate the waiting, I love this week in my cycle. No appointments!!!

SIX more days!!

I know exactly what you mean about not having an appetite on Metformin! I was the same way. Nothing sounded good. Glad to hear you have an appetite again... I think that is good b/c it probably means your body is adjusting to the meds. The Dr. took me off mine b/c of the pregnancy so I'm not looking forward to starting the process of "adjusting" to it again (I say "adjusting" b/c I had a lot worse symptoms than loss of appetite... not sure if you had the same reaction but not cool).

I want to say something really positive here that hasn't already been said a million times and that doesn't sound preachy or insincere... not sure what it is you need to hear right now but . And know I'm thinking of you and praying for you and your follies!

What kind of books do you like to read? I can give lots of recommendations!! Here's just a few:

The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Millenium trilogy by Stieg Larsson
Devil In the White City by Erik Larson
The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff
The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff
Eighteen Acres by Nicolle Wallace
American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
anything by Patricia Cornwell
anything by Daniel Silva, but if you've never read him one of my favorites is A Death In Vienna

Hope that helps! Also, I just wanted to say that I just started reading your blog but I find your posts heartfelt and eloquent. I just got caught up on your story and your posts really speak to me. I am praying for you!
