The Hormoney's

Friday, November 06, 2009

My face is not too happy with all these hormoney's. Don't know what a hormoney is? Watch this...



(Obviously, the part about the lump and twin is not exactly what I wanted to have on today's post, but I can't find a clip without that part...)

Anyway, my co-volunteer who graciously told me her home remedy for acn.e would probably fall over if she saw my face today. It is pretty ridiuculous. I don't quite know how to describe it- it's mostly under the skin I think- but the bottom half of my face is splotchy and irritated and ac.ne-looking. ICK. I never break out this bad EVER. Maybe I'll have to take her up on her water/aspirin/vinegar remedy...

Speaking of aspiring, I'm trying baby aspirin this cycle, too. My RE said it wouldn't hurt, so he wasn't going to tell me not to take it, but he said he wouldn't recommend it, as in, he's not going to say "take this so you'll get pregnant". But I got the chewable kind, and they are yummy!

And I think the hormoney's are also affecting my handling of the situation where we suspected there was a mouse in my office (heard some scurrying and Banana was on high sniff-around-the bookshelf-alert), so we put out some traps last night. Now, logical-A says mice are not house pets you want to encourage, what with their legendary bad hygeine, nor do you want to have them running amuck around clean dishes and pantry shelves just because that is a little creepy. However, hormoney-A says hello, we live in what used to be a cow pasture, so we are actually in their home and they're probably just a little chilly and they probably don't have any disease, and they are sort of cute and furry....not to mention what kind of karma are we going to have going into the IUI after setting a mouse trap?!?!

Breathe.

Unfortunately for the mouse, he was a little too interested in the cheese... and I am dealing with it well. If I'm going to have babies in this house, it better be clean and not housing crawly critters!! No matter if they are furry or not!

Just talked to my friend O, and I'm so excited to be hanging out with her and her hubby and baby again tomorrow for some football! Before we do that, though, we have to do the trigger shot tonight!! Should I call my RE this afternoon and make sure he remembers we're coming for the IUI Sunday and that he told the washer-guy that he has to come in on Sunday morning? Ha! Hello, I am a micromanager!

I am feeling really positive about the IUI, and my two baby follicles. I'm pretty sure my heart has already run far ahead of my mind...

Good luck this weekend! Hope everything goes well. It's great you have plans with friends to help distract you this weekend! I will be thinking about you Sunday morning!

Good luck this weekend. I am sure the "washer" will remember to be there. :) When we had ours the waiting room was full of IUI and IVF patients (we've never seen it that full before). They schedule everything in the AM so that the doctors can still have half a day off.

I totally feel you with the acne! I rarely had acne as a teenager (also rarely had hormonal fluctuations) and feel like my skin is paying me back for that now.

Good luck with the mouse! Eeewww.

Hey girl, thank you so much for your very kind comment on my blog. I appreciate your optimism and your sweet spirit, and of course, your prayers.

Ugh, I'm sorry about all the hormone stuff (and about the mouse)! I will definitely be praying for you tomorrow for the IUI. Best wishes to you! Oh, how I hope this will be it!
