Stop, Drop & Roll!

If there is one thing that I absolutley DESPISE about actively TTC'ing, its progesterone! For some reason the cycles that we "skip" (basically I just don't track Ovulation) the hormone induced problems of the luteal phase go away. Not completely, but for the most part I don't notice any aches or twinges or skin break-outs. However, when I am tracking and charting... I notice it all! And today is one of those days!

I woke up this morning feeling like I did after our Egg Retreival (ER)... my lower abdomen was aching and my lower back was sore (and for those of you with dirty minds, we did not preform "Cirque du Soleil" in the boudoir last night), plus my poor chest was/is ON FIRE!!! I am thinking an ice pack might be in order this evening (which is also similar to the articially stimulated Fertility Treatment cycles I've under gone). So on top of feeling like there are flames coming from my bra you can now envision me as being a real life "Ice Chest", I guess I'd also be a "Cold Hearted B" considering the location of the ice pack and my heart! Oh well, here's to hoping that the next 2 weeks go by quickly!!


  1. A hilarious post! And boy do I ever know what you're saying!


  2. I totally am more aware of my body since doing IVF. I can pinpoint every symptom nearly every cycle. How weird! Hope they disappear quickly!
