Man oh man, do I need a drink. The ups and downs of the IVF have been… how do I say this nicely… a fucking nightmare. Ha! I’m currently living in limbo between egg retrieval and my several-months-delayed implantation, and while I can feel my hormones starting to slowly level out things aren’t totally back to normal. The whole process has left me in a bit of a funk—some days blogging feels trivial, getting dolled up seems annoying, and none of my favorite foods taste that great. And then some days everything seems normal, sans a little leftover swelling and a box of fun IVF accessories. Fertility treatment isn’t for the weak of spirit.
On a happy note, I’m at least allowed to have alcohol while we wait for the next step. Here’s what I’m drinking.
Oh hello, Green Apple Berry Cooler. Just looking at the photos makes me want another.
