Scattergories: Heat Wave Edition

What would I do without Calliope? Or, for that matter, Kristin for reminding me I wanted to do this?

Scattergories!!! Use the first letter of your answer from the first question to answer the rest of them :)

  1. What is your favorite cool drink? Coco Frio (Chilled coconut with a straw in it!!!)
  2. Something you would put on or take off when hot? Chonies (ie, underwear, for those of you not from Southern California)
  3. Something you would yell if overheated? Chillax already!
  4. Some place you would love to travel to if the temperature was above 90 degrees? Carribbean, specifically Vieques
  5. Something you would do in a rolling blackout? Cop a feel
  6. Something you would listen to with the top down? "Chillin'" - a playlist I created years ago
  7. Something you would rather be doing right now? Catchin' some zzzzz's
  8. Some place that will always be hotter than where you are now? Constantinople (now known as Istanbul, seriously, TMBG has a song all about it)
  9. Something that sizzles when it touches the sidewalk? Cahones
  10. Something that goes well with a barbeque? Cantaloupe

Hope you had fun, play again next time!

I have been very much at peace with things this past week. (Okay, except for our scare Friday). The freak out of a week ago seems to have been the last of them. I am coping with everything really well, I feel good about our cycle whichever way it goes (so I say now :-P).

I am however back into side effect land - right after my 2nd injection (and I am totally doing them at room temp, still stings) the migraine came back....strong. I almost threw up on a call...ick. And this part...well, I am assuming it is normal, it just feels really WEIRD. As of about an hour after my first shot Friday, I started feeling my ovaries (henceforth, Ig and Ook) TWINGE. Throb? Twinge I guess is the best word. It's not comfortable, and right after the injection, the one on the side I stick really yells at me. In fact, it is becoming downright painful at times. Please tell me this is normal!!! I keep looking like I'm doing a potty dance. LOL. As of this morning they have calmed down a bit, but the migraine seems determined to settle in for the long haul. And my BBS...they just keep getting BIGGER!!! Buddha jumped on me the other day and I laid there moaning because he hit the girls....oh, man. And this is without stims or PIO. I am in TROUBLE.

On an interesting note, I sent Frog the equivalent of a goodbye the other day, and he responded back with something that lets me know he's been reading the blog, or at least he read Thursday's post. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but again, not freaked, just find it interesting. I told him I'm not angry anymore....which isn't entirely true. It's more that I've accepted what happened and am moving on. So, not entirely a lie, but the closest I could come to the truth without opening a bucket of worms. I'm liking having peaceful, happy, fun me back. Mostly back. It's nice :)

I want to thank you all sooooo much for your words of support about my post yesterday...that one even brought some lurkers out of their closets! I wanted to bitch-slap the person, but thought a well-written response was better. I'm glad I didn't go hog-wild. I felt it was important to stand up for us, clarify, and be the bigger person. Thank you, again.

Sorry for another long post. Truth be told, I have so much on my mind and so many things I want to post that I actually have several posts pre-written, and I then edit them based on the day they actually get posted. That way I don't have to try and remember everything. I don't mean to be all wordy, but I have to get it out. Thank you for listening.


  1. Smooch.

    Incidentally, I think of you each and every time I flush the toilet now. ;)

  2. I used to love They Might Be Giants - mainly the cd with the song about Istanbul on it!!!

  3. "Cop a feel"...haha!

    I finally got caught up on your blog. It's amazing everything that happened leading up to this IVF cycle. I'm so glad you "made the train" and that things are going full speed ahead. Keep on hanging in there with those injections. You are such a champ.

  4. OMG I am RIGHT there with you...the headache, and the pain in the @ss girls! You throw on top of that the weekend I've had and it's not good.

    Hang in will all be worth it that first week in August when we're looking at those sky high beta numbers!


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
