Just kidding I am NOT doing the HCG diet... like ever again! But I do however have to take the drug HCG again. I was really hoping this wouldn't be the case. But lo and behold this is where we are at. Now let me back up and explain the last week or so.
I always hate the after effects of Chlomid. But this time I felt MUCH better than I did last round. And I thought hey I can handle this. about 9 days before I started my period I was feeling super depressed. Now I am not sure if this was chlomid or just something I am going through ( I really think it is Chlomid cause I am a ball full of hormones) I literally didn't want to wake up or be around people or even do anything. I didn't have a drive to do much at all. So last month it was the anxiety and hot flashes this month its been the mood swings that are killer. So it was a Thurs. I was in class when my sister text me and said they were all going on a girls trip the weekend after Thanksgiving. (Side note: I hate being/feeling left out of something. Even if its not intentional I try my hardest to not be) Well I work the entire weekend after thanksgiving so I was for sure not going. So I just started crying in class. Normally I would be uber bummed, but I was like hysterical and just wanted to cry and listen to depressing music hahaha!
Fast forward to Tues. I was having a good day, that night my sister was hosting a party at Bohme and I wanted to support her, so my sister Jamie and I drove together. On the way home we started talking about baby business. By the time I dropped her off we left it with "I will pray for you that it happens". On my drive home I just cried and cried hysterical. I started praying/talking with God and asking him for what seems a miracle. I composed myself before I got home and told myself everything was going to be okay. The next day, I worked all day, got home did homework you know the same routine. I came downstairs and my sink was full of dishes. Which normally is fine, I just got so angry and started scrubbing them and was so mad that Jake didn't do them even though he was supposed to. I ended up hysterically crying again. After it came down to it, Jake got out of me that I was pissed with things in life and that nothing was working out. My sweet husband held me and rubbed my back till I couldn't cry anymore. We went to bed and moved on. The next morning I woke up and was having a really rough morning. I text Jake and told him about it, the sweet man of mine decided to take some of my stresses away by taking me to Texas Roadhouse for dinner.
Unfortunately that I started :( it wasn't until 4 that night which was a bummer. But I just didn't want to think about it. I still feel like I am going through the motions.
Today I had to go to the Dr's to get another dose of Chlomid and decide if I needed to take HCG to help me get pregnant. I went in and got violated. Than we decided that it would be best if I did the chlomid along with the HCG. Well after dropping $212 on a chlomid and HCG prescription I am ready for 3rd round of Chlomid and HCG. On tuesday I will go in and get an ultrasound. The ultrasound will look at my ovarian follicle to see if they are functioning normally. What is an ovarian follicle you ask? It is a cell structure that helps the eggs that go into ovulation become mature. It just is another thing that aids in getting pregnant. The eggs start our immature and the follicles help it become mature so it can implant. The HCG will help this along if there is a problem. So till Tuesday I don't know!
Honestly though even though this past week has been the hardest week of my trial, I also haven't felt more blessed and loved in my life. I got numerous texts from friends concerned with my well being. My husband was a solid rock through the whole thing and tried to make it as easy as possible. My sisters all gave me such a sweet gift. I really can't say thank you enough to everyone who cares about me and loves me!
