Taking a break.

September 10, 2010 at 10:25 am | Posted in And I ran (I ran so far away), FET #4 | 9 Comments

I didn’t run last night.

Instead O, J, and I went to his daycare party hosted by the owner and hung out with our friends A and M while O and R played football and ran around like crazies.

It was nice to really have a BREAK.

Because I will admit: the hormones right now are actually sort of kicking my ass. At best I feel hungover, with a low-level nausea that seems to come and go.

I KNOW. It’s a FET! I mean, seriously, get it together, Serenity. This is NOTHING compared to IVF – it’s almost like being on the PILL.

I guess, though, after almost 4 years being free from synthetic hormones, my body isn’t used to it.

I’m like an born-again ART virgin or something.


The good news is that I FINALLY got a good night of sleep last night, and my muscles are MUCH better today. I think I’ll have nice fresh legs for my 12 mile run tomorrow, which is what I was hoping for.

So that break did me good. And I’m feeling much less anxiety about taking a day off.

And then?

Next week we’re heading up to Lake Winnepesaukee in NH for a full week of vacation with my in laws. I think that my SIL, D, and my new niece E might come by for a day, but otherwise it’ll just be the five of us – me, O, J, and my MIL and FIL.

So I’m putting up the out-of-blog sign for now.

My next update will include the ultrasound AND 10k race results (I’m hoping to get a PR here – my last 10k time was 59:13. I’m hoping to get this one done in 57 minutes or so).

Sort of freaky to think that two weeks from tomorrow might be transfer day.

Okay, maybe a LOT freaky.

Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you all when we get back!
