cluck cluck

I wanted to do a little post about how all the medical stuff has been going. You know, the real reason for this extended vaca in Chicago. Everything has been going great! As of yesterday (Monday) they said I have 21 big eggs and lots of little ones growing. My nurse this morning was making fun of even my ovaries being overachievers.

I am continuing to take shots to grow the eggs and probably will through this weekend. We are still waiting to find out when my procedures will be, which will determine when Brian comes up. I hope its soon cause I miss him a lot. And he is being so brave, keeping up our life in NC even though I know he wants to be here for all the pre-appointments.

The medicine's main side effect is to make me really sleepy. Like abnormal need for naps sleepy. So in real life I get about 7 hours of sleep a night. Here in Chicago, I get 8-10 hours of sleep. And require a 2+ hour nap every afternoon. So my mom tucks me into bed after I fall apart in the afternoon for nap time. She keeps saying I am like a little hen nesting on all my eggs.

Other than that, I have had a few emotional outbursts. Like stomping my feet in Walmart, demanding a diet coke, and bursting into tears because there were so many "annoying people with ugly clothes" in my way. For real. I think God is laughing because he knows this whole scene will replay in about 3 years. When I am the one with the irrational toddler. And God will laugh then too.

The only thing that ever sat its way
to success was a hen.
