Now you have me worried.
I have another question: How does all this fertility stuff affect your relationships? Marital or otherwise?
Honestly, I'm not sure how critical it is. I think it's more critical with the stims, but don't quote me on that. The one I know that IS really critical is the trigger shot before egg retrieval. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
As for affecting relationships - it comes and goes. It's actually a lot easier now that we're out of the rut of scheduled sex. 4+ years of that really got old. And if one more person told me "oh, but at least you get to have the fun of trying", I think I would've strangled them
I had a really hard time after our 2nd m/c. DH never really bonded with that pregnancy like he did with the 1st and so the loss of it didn't hit him as hard. I had a lot of anger towards him for not feeling as bad as I did over it, but fortunately we've sorted that out. I think we've done a pretty good job overall of handling all of this and finding our way through the rough spots. I work with a therapist off and on and that helps a lot. How are you doing with it?
Shawna - hang in there with everything! Which it sounds like you are
. It's interesting you mention the loose bowels. I definitely haven't been having any problems with constipation (knock on wood).
I am really dragging today. Did not do a good job of eating well yesterday. Not enough protein & too many carbs. I always seem to drag the day after I do that. Today I am being very conscientious and eating well. I think it's even more important for me to watch what I eat when I add in the whatever side-effects the meds are creating.
