I’ve been on Estrace 3 times a day for about 2 weeks now. I never had hormonal mood swings when I took birth control, so this whole emotional thing is all new to me. This might be a rant post, so I apologize if I come across whiny.
Being stuck in traffic with road rage is nothing new for me. But the other day, I had missed my chiropractor appointment because I was stuck in traffic, and had to reschedule the appointment. I almost CRIED! Seriously! Who cries over a missed appointment? It’s not like I had to wait weeks for another appointment, I got in to see her two days later.
That’s an example of stupid things that are making me cry. Thank goodness I hadn’t started taking Estrace when THAT Grey’s Anatomy episode aired. I would’ve probably bawled for days.
I feel bad for DH. I’m just grumpy all the time, but I told him I knew that I was being crazy, and that it was the pills. He’s been really good though. I had to drive him to work before my barre class this morning, and I was being a total grump about it. Instead of reflecting my grumpiness back to me, he was upbeat, and tried to make me laugh (which annoyed me BTW).
Speaking of barre, there have been 2 pregnant ladies in my classes this week. They look amazing, but COME ON’!!!!! To add insult to injury, an ex-coworker of mine got married recently, and she’s now pregnant with her bump showing!! She’s also over 35, and the fact that she got pregnant ASAP really makes me sad. But on the other side, she’s the second woman over 35 who has gotten pregnant easily, so if the next couple rounds of treatment don’t work out for us, I should still be healthy enough to keep on’ trucking.
Lastly, I went to the RE for a follow up U/S. My lining was only at 6mm after two weeks. So in addition to taking Estrace orally, I now have to stick up you know what! I can only imagine how much crazier I’m going to get.
How do you deal with this? I’m finding this FET so much harder than a fresh cycle! UGGGGGGH.
Okay. Rant over. I do try to be positive everyday, and I’m so grateful to have all you guys here supporting me. I don’t talk about our treatment much to people IRL. I truly appreciate all the support you’ve given me. 🙂
