Good: First day of injections went well.
Bad: I have a pounding headache, but it's not related to the stims. I think it's a sinus headache.
Good: A friend of mine is doing her 2nd IVF and got 8 eggs at her retrieval today.
Bad: Her 1st IVF resulted in a long, drawn-out miscarriage. I hope that doesn't happen to them again.
Good: I have an acupuncture appointment tonight. I'm really looking forward to it!
Ugly: I am a horrible person because I just found out my boss is pregnant and I'm having a hard time being genuinely happy for her. She's 40, has a high FSH, and seriously resisted any and all forms of ART. She finally agreed to do this IUI and BAM, she's pregnant on the first try. I guess I feel like a failure -- I've done 4 IUIs and 2 IVFs, with no pregnancy to show for it -- so it's more about my feelings of inadequacy. I just endured 2 co-workers' pregnancies and pretended to be happy. Why do I have to live through another while I sit on the side lines merely watching?
That's a rhetorical question, no need to answer.
