Everyday since I received my IVF calendar I spend about thirty seconds staring at it. OK, I really do this two or three or sometimes four times a day.
Sometimes I'm checking to make sure that I have taken all of my medicine.
Sometimes I am counting days until the next appointment.
Sometimes I am counting days until the next new medicine.
Sometimes I am seeing how far I have come.
All little ways to pass the time. All little ways to count out the hours, days, and weeks spent waiting.
The last few weeks have really gone pretty quickly. I've found myself saying, "It's already time to start shots! My period is already here! It's already time for my baseline ultrasound!"
But this week has been different. This week has been incredibly slow. This week has been incredibly long. It's only Wednesday! So odd, because this week has been the most action filled week to date!
Maybe this week seems slower because work has slowed down a bit. Maybe this week seems slower because I have had a raging headache ever since I started the estrogen suppositories. Maybe this week seems slower because the action has started and I can't wait to see what my ovaries are doing.
With all the drugs they give you for IVF, why can't they give you one that makes time move faster?
