Not much going on here…

2 02 2013

I did my second Humira shot on the 24th and so my bloodwork will be drawn on St. Valentine’s day, whoohoo… very romantic 🙂  Actually my husband and I don’t do much for that holiday.  Not that I would mind at all, but he’s not into that stuff, and I made the mistake early in our relationship of saying I wasn’t much into it either.  (I’ve tried, since, to make such a huge deal of positive reinforcement when he does bring me flowers… hopefully it works a little bit… though in nearly 5 years of marriage and 8 years together, I’ve gotten flowers 3 times.  Once, my wedding bouquet, once a miniature rose bush in a pot, and once, flowers for Valentines.  It’s a slow process.)

Not sure it’s related, but I do have a cold right now.  I am fervently hoping it’s a sign the Humira is doing its thing.  I’m a little mad though, because till this cold I was doing really well at going to the gym and training jiu jitsu– and eating very healthily– and had lost about 4-5 lbs.  Then being sick, working from home, drinking tea all day, and eating soup… you think that sounds relatively okay, but I was eating tortilla soup with tortilla chips and shredded cheese… not so good.  And not working out.  So today I’m feeling better, though still sniffy, and I’m going to class.  I’ll wash my hands and tell my partners so they can switch people if they want.  I just have to get out of the house and get a good sweat on.

Random note:  I hadn’t had AF since Dec 7th.  So I asked Dr Braverman and he ran my bloodwork… which revealed I hadn’t ovulated yet, but was getting close.  So I started doing those opk’s (ha, good thing I saved some) and we actually focused on timing things.  I thought on-demand BD was a thing of the past and I’m sure my DH did too.   Now, I’ve heard enough women in the internet world who got bfp’s from random business between IVF cycles…. but aside from the sheer ridiculousness factor, I don’t think it will be happening for us.  But… in the name of “what the hell let’s try,”  we tried.

We leave next week for Vegas to visit his parents and aunt/uncle.  It’s his uncle’s 80th birthday, so it will be like a family reunion.  Thus, another “georgette brings hpt’s” trip to the in-laws.  *sigh*  Talk about ridiculousness….

Hope you’re doing well….

He & Me Plus 3: Life With Triplets Un-wrapped

Okay, so, it’s not like I think everything I say and do is so damn awesome that everyone should know about it. In a blog. It’s just that as if being blind, and a vegetarian, with anxiety/OCD, and having the ability to accidentally break almost anything, and not liking chocolate, would be enough. But no. I also have to have IVF. Could I be any more minority? So it’s like god is playing one big joke on me… and I am not going down without a fight. In fact, God, I’m going to tell your mum on you. Well I would if my knowledge of religion was good enough for me to figure out who your mum is. Eve? Is it Eve? Well, Eve, this is what your son has been up to, and God, I just got you grounded pretty much forever. In your face, God. Ha.
