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!
