Recipe For Disaster

Needles, hormones & poison ivy = a recipe for disaster.

The past few days have been rough and I'm not afraid to admit that there has been a tear or two shed. I've been on the Puregon & Menopur for a few days now as well as continuing the's been a rough few days. My yummy looks like it's been on the losing end of a fight and I'm sporting some lovely purple bruises and while I love the color purple, I'd much rather be wearing a pretty purple dress than my tummy wearing purple. While I have Googled side effects and read countless first hand stories from some pretty amazing women battling infertility, I was a little under prepared for how this rush of hormones was going to make me feel. That combined with a raging and spreading case of poison's just been hard....BUT...this is all worth it and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I just keep reminding myself that...

A Saturday trip to Dairy Queen for a strawberry banana milkshake and perhaps a new book along with some "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" watching...will make a girl feel better!

Happy Saturday!


  1. yes the drugs do a number on you physically and emotionally. I remember turning into a sort of monster and screaming something along the lines of "do you think this is fun for me" repeatedly. So do give yourself a break. The bruises will fade and you will feel more like yourself eventually but it is all for a great cause so hang in there!

  2. Thanks for the words of encouragement Ashley...just what I needed, just when I needed it!

    Hope you had a lovely weekend! It really was beautiful here in Ottawa hey :-)
