Sick and Anxious

I am finally starting to feel a little bit better. Hooray. I’ve been sick all week with sinus funk. It was bad through Wednesday, and it got to the point where I thought it was a sinus infection. Luckily, the IVF coordinator said I could take Claritin. That really started to clear me up, and even though I was sneezy all day yesterday, I was feeling much better. Today, I have a headache, which sucks because I can only take Tylenol, which really doesn’t do much to help me. Oh well.

I’m really anxious for Monday’s u/s. At this point, seein the baby on the screen is the only way for me to know it’s still ok in there! I’m sure it’s fine, but, of course, I wonder sometimes, especially when my symptoms seem to have gone away. I know that’s normal, and maybe I’m one of the lucky ones who had only a week of morning sickness. I just can’t wait to see Lil’ Geek again. And, hopefully, he/she will look less like a blob this time!

I freaked out a bit yesterday because I forgot to change my estrogen patch on Wednesday. At least, I think I did. I can’t remember if I changed it Wednesday or not, and since I can’t remember what day I started my new box, it was hard for me to calculate. Luckily, the IVF coordinator said it was fine to just change it out today as I would have anyway. She said that at this point I could actually stop taking them altogether, which makes me wonder why I have to finish out the box. And, I wonder why I have to take the progesterone so much longer than the estrogen. Questions to ask the doctor on Monday, I suppose. Hopefully I’ll have a doctor doing my u/s and not the tech I had the last two times who wouldn’t tell us anything or show us anything while she was doing it.
