What else did I forget?

Every night I get my coffee (decaf of course) ready for the next day so all I have to do in the morning is push the button and away we go.  This morning in a complete fog I woke up and went out to the kitchen to start my coffee. So when Steve came in the bedroom and asked why I didn't make coffee I was confused...I pushed the button, I remember!  Well, what I didn't remember is that last night I passed out on the couch in my Repronex haze and didn't get the coffee ready.  Way to go Bridget.  My forgetfulness didn't stop there... I also locked my keys in my office at work and forgot a huge stack of paperwork that I needed for an off-site meeting.  The side-effects just keep getting better. It seems appropriate to use one of my dad's favorite sayings from my childhood- "you'd forget your head if it wasn't attached".  Yes Dad, I believe I would right now.
On a better note, I had another blood test today and my estradiol level is at 148- awesome!  My injections stay the same for now and I go back for another blood test on Saturday.  I can't believe my egg retrieval is coming up so fast!  It seems like yesterday that we started this whole process and now the big day is almost here.

Thank you for all of your positive comments yesterday- it was a bad day for me and your thoughts helped so much! I know that all of this torture (25 shots and 4 blood tests in 16 days and still more to come) will be worth it when we have our bundle of joy- but getting there has been one rocky road.

  1. OMG! I was sooo forgetful when I was on the my drugs before the ER. I kept saying, "Geez, I'm like a pregnant woman only not pregnant!" I hope everything goes smoothly.

  4. I'm amazed that women who are going through IVF with these heavy medications still have the power/energy to get up and go to work each day. Good job!

  6. Meds can definitely do that to a person. Sounds like you are remembering all the truly important things though. Best of luck on your cycle!

  7. I have heard the drugs necessary for IVF are miserable. You definitely have my sympathy. I wish you the very best of luck with this cycle.
