I am a sleeper and I am NOT a morning person.
Today, I woke up at 5 am. WTF, seriously Lindsey?
Whenever something is on my mind, or I have to be somewhere earlier than usual, my body goes into hyper awake mode. I often think it’s so that I don’t sleep through my appointment. Anyway, it sucks especially when it may be a 5:50 am flight (except I’m awake at 1:00 am) or in this case, 7:30 am blood work except I’m awake at 5:00 am.
My husband offered to stay home and take me to my appointments. With our IVF trip and harvest coming up, he has zero paid time off left, so I told him no. Thanks, but right now, I’m more about the benjamins, baby.
This morning, I’m getting my blood work done, followed by my ultrasound (with a full bladder I must add).
Getting my blood work done is an experience I HAVE to prepare myself for because:
- Old people drive me nuts
- Old people line up at least 1/2 hour before the lab opens outside the door
- I need my blood work done ASAP this morning
- That means I’ll be waiting in line with these old folks
I’m going to make myself a big peppermint tea and find some sense of humour or delight in watching the old folks this morning.
Last time I had an ultrasound done at this location, they were running over 1/2 an hour behind. They did have some good oldies tunes playing on the radio though. Hopefully, my bladder and I can make it through it.
I’m truly looking forward to when we arrive at the clinic and have our monitoring done there. 6 days to go…
My affirmation for today is: Everything will go smoothly with my IVF process.
Deep breath Lindsey.
