Day 15 (Round 2 of IVF Stims): The Round That Doesn’t End

Day 15 (Round 2 of IVF Stims): The Round That Doesn’t End

(Entry written prior to posted date).


When will this long cycle end?! I can’t help but create my own version of the Lamb Chops song:


“This is the round that doesn’t end,

Yes it goes on and on my friends.

Some people started scanning her

Not knowing all the eggs.

And they’ll continue scanning her

Forever just because

This is the round that doesn’t end…”


I’m so bloated now I feel like my body is from a different person, a much more rotund person. I’m in denial that this body is even mine right now. I look very pregnant. I’m hoping I will pee out all this retained water as quickly as I did after my first round. I kid you not, I peed about 20 times in the middle of the night after my first surgery. I had amazingly snapped back to my normal weight after about one week post-surgery. Our bodies are weirdly amazing when you think about it.


Today we went to mall and watched Instant Family. I thought it was a really inspiring movie for anyone who has considered the possibility of becoming a foster parent. It covers a lot of questions and topics that I’ve been thinking about lately. I would like to foster and/or adopt, whether I have biological children or not. Today was National Adoption day so the movie couldn’t have been out at a more perfect time. Even if you don’t have an interest in creating a family via adoption or fostering, it has Marky Mark in the movie, need I say more?


Thank you for reading.
