Ready for ET

After my tumultuous day on Tuesday, the week got slightly worse before it got better. I was exhausted on Wednesday from being so stressed on Tuesday. However I still had to teach an entire day and then I had a grad class afterward. I knew there was no way that I could make it through the class, so I went through DD's and bought myself a coffee, a real coffee. You know, the kind with caffeine that most of the world drinks. This was my first caffeinated drink in months, but I didn't think anything of it. I always had coffee late in the afternoon and I was fine, so why would this be any different.

I realized my mistake later that night when I was wide awake at midnight. However the caffeine wasn't the only thing keeping me up. I was in so much pain that any time I would even roll to my side, I was in severe pain. I also couldn't touch my stomach because of all the pain. I was positive I had OHSS and was contemplating waking Mr. PB up to bring me to the emergency room. At some point however (I believe around 3 AM), I fell asleep. A few hours later, I woke and felt about 75% better. I still had slight pain, but nothing really to talk about. I spent the day drinking Gatorade and eating protein. I was waiting for the pain to return later that night. It didn't and by the next morning I had no pain what-so-ever.

That sort of leaves me where I am right now. I am awaiting my ET which is scheduled for noon today. I will have 25 minutes of acupuncture before and after the transfer and then it is the couch for me for the rest of the weekend. I truly hope that these blasts are strong and snuggle in. I am ready to the be the next bud with a success story.
