5 days into Marvelon and I’ve got the birth control blues. At first, I thought it was my DOR diagnosis, but then I got to thinking about it. I’m just not at all like myself. I don’t feel sad, I just feel BLAH! It must be the BCP.
Other than that, I’m feeling bloated and constipated (well until this morning when I shit 3x). Basically, my digestive system is not up to par. My wonderful face also keeps breaking out. Typically, I’m zit- free until the week before Aunt Flo. 😦
Earlier this week, we signed. scanned and emailed back all of our consent forms. Whew, there is a lot to go through! We will go over it with the clinic and provide our final sign off when we arrive in person.
25 days to go…
We booked our flights and got an AMAZING deal. $376 one way, taxes in for both of us. We were anticipating it would be more like $800+ (FYI: It’s expensive to fly within Canada. Why? Good question).
We also found a super sweet apartment to rent for our 2 week stay. It’s a top floor suite in a beautiful heritage home within walking distance of many local attractions and an area that excited me the most: Antique row. I highly doubt I’ll have $ money to go shopping, but a girl can browse right?
We are going to put our heart and soul into making our first week away a true summer vacation as much as a summer vacation can be when it involves blood draws, dildo cams, and injections. 😀
The only thing left on the list to figure out is a rental car. This is proving to be more expensive than I had hoped for. I’m sending it out to the universe that I would appreciate a 1/2 price sale to go on between now and August 20th.
Other than waiting for my drugs to arrive, we don’t have much more to do.
I’m getting excited, but I had hoped for less birth control side effects. Oh well.
As (in)fertility goes, you can never know what to expect.
