Happy Birthday to Me

The relief over yesterday’s more-than-doubling beta was great for about two hours. Then the fear/anxiety/worry crept back in.

Per Dr. SBS’s orders, I did the HCG shot yesterday. I can no longer pee on sticks to see that my levels are going up because the HCG will skew everything. I find this reality very scary as I feel someone has taken my safety harness away.

I am, however, utterly exhausted. I even skipped the class I am auditing today because I was afraid I might fall asleep in another professor’s class. Mr. MC was up all night taking care of our sick dog, so it was not a very restful night for anyone. Or perhaps it is due to the HCG shot and progesterone supplements?

Oh, and I am 33 today. Not quite yet in my RE’s ever ominous “over -35” category, but old enough to alarm him. I am a little pregnant, completely exhausted, and I am going to take a nap with a dog who will hopefully not throw up on the bed. Happy birthday to me.

    Yippeee! Happy, happy birthday. You rock!!!!

    I can’t wait to toast to your health with virgin cocktails at the Pepito-Mrs MC joint birthday party this weekend! If it’s any consolation, Pepito was a bleary-eyed, red-rimmed, exhausted, cranky mess by the time we got to the cake tonight. The requisite birthday-cake-smeared-baby pictures will be lovely, I’m sure.
