Betcha think I am going to ask about your peanut butter preference.
Actually, I want to know about what type of applesauce you enjoy. I used to be strictly a smooth savorer and imagined the chunks in the "chunky" variety to be dead worms. Yum...
Don't you miss having that child-like rationale for things? Of course now I know that they are just chunks of *apples. So this past weekend when perusing for fruit to pack in my lunches, I grabbed the chunky variety and have enjoyed the bits of mush that-are-not-dead-worms as I taste a spoonful...
While we are on the topic of chunky and smooth, I want to tell y'all that I am not looking forward to "chunky butt" that comes from the PIO shots. I have enjoyed having my "smooth butt" for the past few months--no raised bumps from the injection site, no bruised surfaces. (let's not even talk about the other connotation for chunky butt...that's an issue too)
Ahhh, we can tie this right back into applesauce! From my extensive research on production of the sauce, the very substance is created from bruised/dented apples. So while I've always been a fan of my smooth butt, I gave chunky a try--and said "yes" to PIO injections for our first IVF and the FET.
Me no likey. Hell, I can put up with the needles, even the pain...but it gets a bit awkward trying to sit down for a meeting in someones office doing the "pregnant-lady-sit." You know the one--when a woman has the belly that causes her to lean back and ease ever so slightly down into the chair. Well it's not so cool when 1. I'm not pregnant and 2. my ass feels like a pin cushion.
So my questions are this: should I stick it out with "chunky butt" or ask for suppositories this time around? What are your experiences with the suppositories? If you have gone from one to the other, which do you prefer?
"Kate" the IVF nurse, isn't partial either way--well, she really won't give me a straight out answer--I may be very straight forward and tell her I really would like to know if one is better over the other. I do have a confession to make: I initially chose to go with the injections because I believed that the PIO got into my system faster--a silly superstition? Maybe. Maybe not--Ive read that suppositories work just as fast (if not faster) And my progesterone levels have always been good, so I don't want to jinx anything!
Your thoughts/suggestions are much appreciated! And don't forget to tell me what type of applesauce you prefer...
A few housekeeping things: I have removed the word verification thingy---getting SO annoying. Others have agreed. All comments are open--it will just go through moderation to prevent spam.
Also, yahoo mail seems to be the biggest spam monster with my e-mail: please check your spam filters before emptying! Especially those who have left a comment/emailed me about the Braces Bunch! And lastly, Mook says "thanks ladies" for all the feedback--we should have his SA results soon as well as the infectious disease panel (more about the "lady that saved the day" later...) Karyotype will be back in 2 weeks...that's the biggie.
*Really, you can tell me--it really is dead worms, isn't it?
