Like riding a bike


Any concerns I had about the drugs making their way through all the excess belly fat this time around are assuaged by the grueling Lupron headaches. Grrr. But that's about the only familiar part. Well except the shooting up; that came right back to me. Like riding a...you know.

This is so different the second time around. I'm at the same point today that I was when I posted this almost two years ago: Lupron day four, took my last BCP last night. Just waiting for CD 1, which would be Thursday if it goes the same way as before. In 2007 I was going crazy ready to get started, thinking of hardly anything else. This time around I'm much more consumed by nap schedules and diaper runs to Target and having dinner ready before a meltdown. Oh yeah and that job thing that used to rule my life, before I quit daycare suddenly (last Monday) and started keeping Piper at home. If I have a spare moment I'm trying to catch back up with business and maybe shower every few days.

Also, when I do allow myself some worry time, I tend to think about how Piper will feel about having a sibling, will she feel displaced, should we start working now on not calling her "the baby" anymore, etc. Can you imagine the gall? My 2007 self would never have dared to imagine such end-game scenarios. I may be in for a big fall if things don't work out according to my neat little plan. Is it just me or do most biking accidents happen once you think you've got it down?

Post Script - just realized I completely forgot to start children's aspirin. I'm sure it's not a huge deal to start it a week late, but let's have this be the last of my sophomoric cycling accidents anyway!

Um... yah, do pay attention to where you're sticking those needles.

I had similar feelings about displacing our first from his coveted only child throne. The day before the babies were born he was exactly 2.5y and I took him out to savour the last of the attention as an only. I felt really guilty for quite some time, but consoled myself that he was getting siblings who would likely be more fun that I would in the long run.

I hope you don't have any falls this time around.

I SO hear you. It's easier than I would have thought to think of plans rather than ifs.

On the one hand, that's good and a real testament to the place you're in.

And, well, let's just hope there is no on the "other" hand.

Here's to lucky #2.

Sara said...

I can imagine that your feelings must be much different this time. It's a whole different world when you have a child already. Good luck!

Furrow said...

I'm just beginning to get 2nd baby fever (bad!) and I have this cocky assurance that it will happen, so I understand where you're coming from.

Elle said...

It's inspiring to read your blog and see that IVF #1 worked for you! I'm sure going through this whole thing again with a toddler presents its own set of challenges.

Wishing you the best -- and an end to those Lupron headaches!

bb said...

Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment. They are so much fun to get!

I will actually start Lupron tomorrow. I am doing a mircrodose flare and so I take Lupron a few days and then start Follistim a few days after. I am hoping this is lucky number #2 for us. And I hope the same for you! I will be waiting for your updates, best of luck to you!!!

Thanks for stopping by the blog. I don't have any experience with bringing a second child into the house, but when we tried to bring a second dog into the house. Our spoiled rotten 6 year old lab would not have it. Her moodiness was so bad, we had to return the puppy. (the only reason we got one was to keep her company).

Of course, I don't think it will go down the same way with a baby. I mean after all of this, I doubt we would just return the baby to the IVF clinic. Tee Hee.

You took Piper out of daycare? Did I miss something? Do you have her at home while you try to work? If so, you are better at it than me!

Good luck with the cycle btw. Sending baby dust your way. :)

Jamie said...

What happened at daycare?? I sense a story there...

I agree, it is so much different this time around. I am at such a different place than I was with my last cycle two years ago. It really is amazing!

Thanks for leaving me a comment! It's reassuring to see that all this effort can actually bring results. Fingers crossed for #2.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
