The last few days have been rough. Mike’s been sick, I’ve had a headache for what feels like forever, and after weeks of meds and waiting, it was (officially) determined that I needed MORE fertility drugs.
I’m up to the maximum dosage. Honestly, I saw it coming. The first few monitoring appointments were disappointing. Also, I may have been accidentally ruining everything by eating veggie burgers for several days in a row? Apparently soy can effect estrogen levels — which (and this is where I kick myself) I already knew, but totally forgot about.
So, 86’ing the soy. No problem.
While I’m at it, I’m also attempting to ween myself off of diet soda (which is delicious, and I love it, and omg I need a Coke Zero RIGHT NOW) — seeing as how I’ll have to do so once I get pregnant anyway. Also on the list of things “I shouldn’t be eating, but I love them, so I eat them anyway. Don’t judge me!” — sugar, flour, delicious carbs, low-fat dairy.
Full-fat organic dairy is ok, in limited quantities — but they recommended either rice milk or almond milk, which I’ve never had. Any suggestions? Anyone?
I’m gearing up for a kitchen pantry/fridge overhaul. I have a list of pro-fertility foods I need to stock up on. I just haven’t done it yet.
Baby steps, yes?
Blerg. My head is killing me, and that pile of Real Simple downstairs isn’t going to read itself. So that’s where I’ll be.
Who are we kidding? I’m taking a nap.
