I Feel Like I’ve Already Blown It

Ever the optimist, I feel like I’ve already let my chances for this cycle fade.  Last week I came down with a horrible stuffy nose / sore throat.  But I kept trying to ignore it and went to work on days I shouldn’t have – you know, cuz I’m so darn dependable (and feeling a bitguilty I’ll probably be out for a few days with OPU and transfer) and things are really crazy for me at the moment at work.  So I wound up feeling so ick I could only eat soft, bland foods for a couple days, felt too ick to cook (and the husband’s not known for cooking nutritious meals), and having a fever and being put on antibiotics.  The only silver lining I can see is that at least as this is an antagonist cycle I don’t have to try to sniff Synarel through my painfully clogged nostrils.

I know normal people could go through this and still develop reasonable quality eggs, but I think we know I’m not normal in this regard.  IRL I’m a bit of an overachiever, but when it comes to fertility I’m definitely at the low end of the underachiever scale.  Sigh.
My 1st follicle scan is Wednesday.  SUCH a long time away.

I’m sort of living today hoping a friend’s early pregnancy scan goes really well.  We all need some good new in all this, don’t we?

    This is so, so hard … I hope you’re feeling (physically) a little better, at least. I think there are some times we just can’t expect ourselves to function properly. It’s OK to NOT cope. I wish I could be there and give you a few days off … from having to be so damn responsible. Please be kind to yourself.

    I’m so sorry! Being sick and then having to deal with stims is just a double misery. I really, really hope that this hasn’t affected anything.

    As the previous commenter said, take some time off and let yourself relax. It’s ok to not be the overachiever!
