I’ll take mood swings for 500 please, Alex



Look out world, I’m irrationally moody! I would summarize Sunday’s symptoms with three words: “bitchy and aggressive.”

The amount of irrational grump spewing from me is just embarrassing. Making it even worse is that I am all too aware of my grumpiness but have no self-control over it. It’s a vicious battle and Mr. Husband is caught in the crossfire.

Extreme moodiness aside, yesterday’s IUI went well. I helped Mr. Husband do his thing in the cup, Dr. Hope put said things into my snuggly ute and then I dozed for 10 minutes until we were cleared to head out. I spent the rest of my afternoon and evening trying to avoid humanity. I took a 5 mile walk (pre IUI), made a card for a friend, ventured to the craft store and then worked on a sewing project.

I made a quick and easy comfort food dinner and found every element of it unpalatable. Normally a salmon burger, cabbage and baked sweet potato is one of my favorite meals, but not post trigger. It seems the hormones have really affected my taste-buds. You know what did taste really good, though? Toast. Not only am I moody, I’m a boring moody person.

My only other observation is that my nips HURT. Oh my gosh, I have heard woman say that their girls hurt during pregnancy, I sure hope it is not like this nip pain. I had to sleep in a padded bra to protect them from the fierce sheets. If this is what pregnancy is going to be like, I am gonna need to invest in some nip armor!

That is all for Sunday’s symptoms. I have more to ramble about, but have a meeting in 10 minutes so I’ll leave it short and sweet!

    Hahahaha! Nip armor!
    I am also feeling aggressive and kind of gave been for a week or two. What’s that about? I don’t want to be aggressive 😦 what do you do to keep yourself from biting off heads?
    Good luck with the IUI!

    I think it is great that your doctor did 2 IUI’s this cycle. Makes SO much sense. I really hope this is the one for you!
