Day 6 (Round 1 of IVF Stims): Sleepy Time

Today I took a four hour nap. My body was screaming at me to get more sleep, so I couldn’t resist. I didn’t plan on a four hour nap. I even hit the snooze button three times. I was just exhausted. I managed to do the dishes and that was about it for the day.


I reheated a healthy egg and veggie scramble I made. It’s super packed with veggies, in fact there are more veggies than eggs. It’s very filling. Normally I don’t do egg scrambles like this but since I’m doing IVF I’m trying to be at least somewhat healthier.




I managed to drink all my required water despite the fact that I slept half the day. I’m also retaining a lot of that water too. I am so insanely bloated it’s not even funny. When I drop something my gut gets in the way of picking things up, that’s when you know you are truly bloated. Ugh. I can’t wait to lose this weight. I’m wondering how quickly I’ll drop the weight after my egg retrieval.


I’ll be headed out of state here soon for my retrieval. They started me on Ganirelix a little earlier then scheduled due my one follicle being enlarged, putting me at risk of ovulating too soon. Hopefully I can do this retrieval without anymore delays. Here’s to hoping.
