Even typing about it now has me a little worked up. I don't know if it's because we're paying out of pocket, if it's because I know it's our last fresh cycle, or if it's because there are so many other things going on in our lives right now. I do know that I've never been more thankful for an acupuncture appointment. During Thursday's acupuncture session, I could feel my entire body relax. I didn't even care about the fact that I drank to much water before my appointment and it felt like my bladder was about to explode. I was beyond relaxed.
140. That's how many needles I received in my oversized box of medication. I will thankfully not be using all of them, but yikes!
So now we're just biding our time over the next week and a half. I wonder if the kids have any sense of big things to come? We aren't going to be telling them anything about what's going on until after a couple positive ultrasounds, but I do think they've noticed that mommy has been spending a lot of time visiting the doctor. Once we start monitoring, I'm sure they'll be coming to appointments with me, so I'm sure there will be some questions then. Although, maybe I'm over thinking it and it will be no big deal to them.
I am gladly taking suggestions on your best relaxation techniques. If you've done a fresh cycle with kids before, I'd also love any advice you have on answering questions regarding the process. Hit me with some answers, please!
