Zzzzz.... I Miss Coffee

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a LARGE Americano with cream. Mmmmmm. I am from and have always lived in Seattle, you know; home of Starbucks and Tully's? I also was a barista for many years, feeding the addiction. I usually start my mornings by going to our local coffee shop for a nice pick-me-up, but since I am in the midst of an expensive and painful IVF cycle, I figure, why not give it my best shot and quit the coffee and the heroin? Just kidding on the heroin. Making sure you were paying attention. ;)

So after yesterday's appointment, I am realizing why I am so tired (aside from the coffee withdrawals)... my ovaries are sucking all of my energy out! They are pulling it from everywhere: my legs (stairs seem bigger) but mostly my brain. I truly should not be driving or signing medical decisions without a cat nap first. It takes a lot of work to make nearly 30 follicles, I am guessing. My E2 came back at 1424, so yeah, I seem to be a good responder.

Anyway, I am going to go fall asleep on the couch now... update tomorrow after ultrasound. Thanks so much to everyone for the encouragement!


  1. I sympathize with the lack of caffeine. I'm not a coffee drinker, but my RE wants you to give up caffeine, so no more sodas or chocolate for me. It's the cohcolate that I really miss. Good luck on your ultrasound tomorrow. You certainly are a good responder!

  2. Hear, hear!

    I miss my coffee, too!

    Good luck with the ultrasound tomorrow...sounds like everything is going well.
