How Quickly I Forget...


Birth control pills hate me. I haven't taken them in over 3 1/2 years because of how sick they make me feel. My body likes my brand of hormones just fine but the synthetic ones and I go head to head. I knew this might be an issue with IVF treatments but I did pretty good with the Clomid. Probably because all it does is tell my brain I don't have enough estrogen and makes my body produce more of my own estrogen (key point here). Last night I tried to eat dinner which consisted of leftovers from a very delicious meal I made on BCP 4. But on BCP day 7 I had to pass off my barely touched plate to Hammer and pull out the crackers. I know, it was a very nutritious dinner. Don't worry I took my vitamins! I keep telling myself that this is all worth it in the end, because it is. I have always said that I would endure morning sickness for the whole pregnancy if it ended up in us having a child of our own. I guess I just get to start early with some pre-pregnancy drug induced morning sickness. It's worth it. So pass me the saltines please.

I've heard of this being a problem with people, although it's not one I ever experienced. Be careful when you say that you'd be willing to be sick your entire pregnancy. God may hold you to that (read my most recent blog :) )

However, it's still absolutely worth it. Every bit of it. So, I pray that even though the BCP's make you feel yucky, that the outcome will be well worth enduring it.

Oh yuck, Im sorry the BCPs are making you sick. Hopefully your body will get used to them and you can get back to eating normally soon. And there is nothing wrong with some saltines in lieu of dinner until you can get your tummy under control!

awe bless your heart I hope that the naseau goes away.
But your right it might be preparing you and how exciting would that be because that would mean there is a baby coming your way!!!!
I will hope and pray that's why (but that the morning sickness is barely there at all:)
