Cycle Day 10

So, yesterday I took my last fertomid for this cycle. That means that now we play the waiting, hoping, praying, begging and pleading two week wait game. And only then we'll know if we need to begin again with the Dragon Pills.
I'm trying so hard to "just relax" and not think about it too much. Which we all know is about as likely as me falling pregnant without intervention.
But "just relaxing" has the added bonus of making you worry even more if you're still thinking about it and not "just relaxing". It's a vicious cycle. Literally. Just ask My Hubby Who Tells Me I'm Suffering From Sense of Humour Failure.
Other than that I am actually quite surprised (and my hubby is VERY RELIEVED!) that this new brand of Dragon Pills hasn't had very many side-effects. Like, say, beating my hubby to a pulp. That's a nasty side-effect and one my hubby is quite happy to have avoided so far. Of course, if you overlook the bloatiness and the snappiness, then, well, side-effects this cycle = nil. Which is either FANTASTIC! or it makes me wonder if I'm not popping placebos? Mmmm... Maybe the doc just wants me back in his office for another prescription? And a peep show while he's at it. Just kidding.
Only time will tell.
In the meantime, help me think up some useful activities to fill my two-week-and-a-bit wait if you don't mind? I am now on Cycle Day 10. So, still 18 days to go (if this were a normal abnormal cycle for me, then 18 days is just a big fat guess though) before we will know if this cycle is successful. In which time quite a bit of hanky-panky needs to take place. If you know what I'm saying. And, what with all of the snappiness, that's also about as hard to do as, well, falling pregnant.
And that's about all I have to say about that.
That and oh where oh where is a Starbucks when you need one?

Hi Char,

I wish I was there, I would give you yoga classes everyday, seriously, DO YOGA....I, of course, don't believe in the spiritualistic side of it, but the motions have an amazingly soothing effect on the mind and body and the endorphines make you feel like the happiest camper in the world. Be strong and don't allow any thoughts of failure to be entertained in your mind...seriously push those thoughts out...even go some where quiet and scream if you need to..why do I know all of this, been there and done that for other complicatesd situations I haven't been able to control.

Still praying, still hoping..:)

I used to send my Dh instant messages to build up the moment - timed intercourse can really be a drag. My fingers are crossed for you Char- let it be so.
