Today is my sixth day of stims and my second day on Metformin. So far, all I have noticed is decreased hunger, more tummy noises, and a bit of queasiness in waves throughout the day. It is nothing that profound, however, enough that I notice it and then it passes.
I have four more days then I go for my baseline and blood work ! I will be in Northern VA with my family so I will get everything done at the same place I was going to when I was visiting my mom.
Today, I spent most of the day being drug from store to store with my mom as she wanted to go shopping… her go to when she is bored ! I HATE shopping… I HATE crowds.. I HATE people and what I HATE even more is hanging out in malls when I have nothing that I need. I did pick up some cute Christmas themed tissue paper and gift bags for the gifts I bought.
This morning, I started perfecting a new recipe for Orange Cranberry Brioche. It came out really well ! I am going to make another version using water in lieu of whole milk and tweak it a bit to get more of a rise. The loaves rose more during baking than they did while sitting in the pans, so I was happy about that. The bread was amazing in flavor ! I added butter extract, orange extract, orange peel and Cointreau. I can not wait to try the other recipe tomorrow. I intended to do it today, but my mother was insistent on going out. 😦 I told her today, I am NOT going shopping with her again tomorrow nor any other time soon. She wore me OUT!.
In stalker news: This heifer will not stop calling ! I have my ringers off and never have them on anyway since she calls in the middle of the night from spoofed numbers. I block the numbers she calls from and then she just calls from another one. I am changing my phone numbers with the new year and that will take care of that. She has called enough that the police have everything they needs for a harassment complaint. I was sooooo tempted to call her from a spoofed number and have the caller id say HEAVEN or her son’s name, but I thought better of it and decided I am not going down to her level. God will handle her ! This is not my battle to fight.
My focus is getting prepared for the baby battle and win this war ! I am determined that I will be successful with this cycle and will get to bring my healthy babies home at the end of the summer !
Well, my get up and go has got up and went ! Good night ! 🙂
