I’m so tired

CD 2

I’m so freaking tired out. I ended up going to both the girl’s drinks and of course the naming ceremony. I had a good time at both but by Sunday I was plain worn out. My period arrived Sunday and on top of my lack of energy I was just sad.

Today I have no energy. I’m slogging through mountains of work but my zest and vigour has dried up. I usually struggle on days 1 and 2 as my period physically takes it out of me with the pain, bloating and cramping. Sometimes I’m actually afraid of the amount of blood that leaves my body.

I don’t know what to do now. Things on my plate include

  • phoning the fertility clinic to book IUI #6
  • emailing/calling the fertility doctor to discuss the plan….IVF? superovulation? Figuring out the timing.
  • phoning the RPL clinic doctor to book the endometrium biopsy
  • Chiropractor appointment tonight
  • Acupuncture tomorrow

I don’t want to do any of it. I don’t know what to do. I’m paralyzed by too much to do and don’t know where to start.

End of ranting and complaining

I think after my chiropractor appointment I will go and get a pedicure.

  1. Ugh! It sounds like you need a vacation! Are you able to get away with the hubby for a bit? Taking some time to unwind (if you can) might help you feel less overwhelmed by all the stress of this journey. I’m sure I’m stating the obvious, but sometimes we forget that a little downtime can work wonders for our mental state. 🙂

  2. There is a lot on your plate. I hope you enjoyed your pedicure and that your chiropractor didn’t say anything insensitive tonight. I hope you are able to find more energy soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. This is a lot to swallow at once. I’m sorry you are feeling so overwhelmed and periody at the same time. I do think you are on the right track taking a time out for a pedi, though. It is so easy to lose sight of ourselves during all this. I hope the pedi was relaxing and that your toes look fabulous!

  4. Yuck! I always feel blah on days 1 and 2. Plus after a busy weekend like that, I can imagine how you’re feeling! Those plans sound great. Just try to take a deep breath and take one step at a time. Hugs!

  5. I hope the pedicure helped. It definitely sounds like you need to give yourself a break. I don’t know if this is feasible with timing and everything, but what about easing the load by picking one or two of those things on your list to do each week instead of tackling all of them this week? I know that would probably mean pushing out the next cycle by a month, but maybe it would be worth it if it reduces the stress?

  6. Been there, done that. Well, not the pedicure. I went for the antidepressants instead. Maybe I should have gone with the pedicure? I hope you make a choice and feel happy about it. Not being able to decide while the clock is ticking just sucks.

  7. Hang in there! I wish I could say something to make it all feel better. I just wanted to drop you note letting you know I’m sorry things suck and I hope things get better.
