So I learned this morning that all the hormones in my system have mental side effects that are definitely not on the warning labels. Being sore at the injection site and having hot flashes are to be expected, but the bitchiness, and mood swings have shown up too. I actually got upset with my husband for putting a 12-pack of bubbly water on the wrong shelf in the refrigerator. Then not 5 minutes after that irritable outburst I felt like I was going to cry for no reason at all. Yikes! Also I seem to have come down with a severe case of paranoia! I completely imagined that a good friend of mine was angry with me and it's been bothering me all morning. So I texted her to clear that air and she immediately called me because she had no idea what I was talking about. It's official...I'm crazy!! We both had a good laugh about it.
Yesterday when I was out with another good friend for a lovely afternoon of lunch and window shopping I learned that this cycle has turned me into a superstitious IVF patient in addition to the moodiness. When we were in a little boutique I came upon this beautiful grouping of antique marble eggs. Since I have nothing but eggs on the brain (well paranoia too I suppose) I decided to get a few "Lucky" ones. Hey, it can't hurt right?? Here they are...Aren't they pretty?
I'm pretty sure I will survive this hormone roller coaster...lets hope that all the supportive people I have around me can put up with my ludicrous behavior.
