I posted last week about how this break wasn't so bad and maybe, just maybe, I was enjoying it a bit. Yeah, I'm over it. It's really hard not being in cycle, especially when you're immersed in the world of infertility and people are cycling all around you.
Cycling is kind of like high school:
Homeroom - If I haven't driven somewhere while it's still dark and signed my name to indicate that I'm there have I really gotten up and started my day? That little signature proves I was there!
English - It's time to be talking/writing in the present tense again, not the past tense
History - I'm ready to meet with the new RE and review all of my past cycles with him (um, better make this one a double-period)
Gym - It's hard to sit on the sidelines and watch. You can't win if you're not in the game!
Lunch - "I'm sorry cafeteria lady, ma'am, I can't have deli, tuna, soda, coffee, sushi, hot dogs, lox, or brie. What? OK, I'll bring my own lunch tomorrow."
Math - If 4 follicles develop in the left ovary at a rate of 1.2mm/37 hours AND 3 follicles develop in the right ovary at a rate of 1.7mm/43 hours, when will egg retrieval be?
Science - self-explanatory, I think!
Chorus - yes, I sing to my follicles. Stop laughing.
Homework - "Hit me with your best SHOT"
So, there it is. I'm so very ready for school to be back in session!
