Last Birth Control Pill!!!

I'm sooo excited!! I just took my LAST birth control pill;) The countdown is on! I start stims in 5 days!! I am starting off with 150 of bravelle and 75 of menopar. I go to the doctor Wednesday to check my E2 level and have an ultrasound. My doctor won't be there so I hope all goes well. I hope everything looks fine so I can get started. I'm soo excited!

Let me tell you how crazy this birth control makes me. Friday, Brandon and I were having a nice night. We had dinner and then layed on the couch together and watched a movie. All is right in the world....until we went in the bedroom. I had washed the sheets that morning. I LOVE fresh sheets. Brandon didn't know this...he got in the bed and was acting all excited and was rolling around in the covers telling me to get in the bed. If I wouldn't have been crazy at the time..that would have been cute and romantic. Well I shouted at him..."That's FRESH sheets" "I've been looking forward to that ALL week" Then I busted out crying!!! Yes that's right..the maniac was CRYING!! He asked me why in the world I was crying because he didn't do anything wrong. I started to cry more. He told me I was being stupid....wrong answer. I was hysterical crying by that point. I went in the other room and cried and cried. I then went to bed mad. He made me breakfast in the morning....after the way I had acted!! When I told my friend the story I realized how crazy I had acted and I felt so bad for my husband!! I went home and apologized to him!! He just gave me a hug and then cooked me supper! Do I have a great husband or what??? He did tell me that when I start taking shots he is going to move in his office;) I hope my emotions don't get worse!!

I hope everyone had a great week!!

Oh, you are not alone! BCP makes me CRAZY too, and you know what, stims were nothing for me compared to the emotional side effects of birth control. Nothing!

Thank you so much for the big hug on my blog and your loving words. I FELT IT! :) I hope I have great news tomorrow to report!

I can't believe you start so soon! You, my dear, are on your way!!!!

Hugs and love,

I know...we can respond to things so differently when we are all medicated! He is so sweet to make you breakfast.

Good luck on starting stims!

I am so excited that you're so close to starting! I loved the crazy story! :) Hope the rest of the cycle is simple!

I agree, I'm on my 3rd week of BCPs before IVF and I can feel the emotions going as well! My husband is also scared of injections. He's thinking I'm likely to cry every single day... He may be right! Hormones are awful!

poor girl. hang in there. i definitely wasn't taking the amount of shots you will be but the shots were so much better for me than BCP and definitely Clomid ever were.

You do have a wonderful husband! When I cry mine has NO idea what's wrong with me and then he gets mad. So, I just try to keep all my feelings to myself. :)

You are so not the only one to get crazy on all these meds. Plus fresh sheets are amazing:-) One day while i was on my estrogen and my cat was sick i had a complete breakdown in front of DH, like the gasping snotty kinda breakdown about how i didn't know i loved my cat this much until now...yea it was pretty crazy, i felt stupid the next day.

Anyway, Yay!! Stims are starting soon, i'm so excited for you!!!

Hoping for our own Peanut said...
