IVF # 6 – Stim Day 6 – The 411

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 ! 🙂
