Let the games begin



The crazy games, that is. My second batch of Vivelle patches went on Monday night. By Tuesday night I was in full-on bitch mode. Everything the Professor did pissed me off. Everything I looked at in my little house pissed me off. The cats pissed me off. So I retreated to my sewing room to get some craft on.

After 2.5 hours of swearing at my skirt I gave up. Lesson: trying to “fussy cut” a garment while hopped up on Vivelle patches is not a good idea. I was planning to recover my lamp shades tonight but now I’m not sure that is such a great idea… Perhaps I’ll wait to whip out the glue until after all this crazy has subsided.

At 5 a.m. this morning I found myself browsing baby supplies and feeling all happy and optimistic. THIS IS OUR TIME! And then I took a shower and tried to tackle my hair and decided this is not our time. This is going to be only more heart ache. Then the Professor asked if we had an onion and I freaked out. Ten minutes later I was happy as a clam and walking to work. Ugh. It’s going to be a long few weeks.

Also: all I want to do is eat cake. Somebody please cake me.

    Sounds like Mood Swing Central – I know the feeling! Here’s hoping you get more of the happy-as-a-clam, optimistic moments then the world-is-against-me-I-hate-everyone moments. Hang in there!

    Yay hormones :/

    I am also one to retreat when I’m upset. Usually I don’t do anything as productive as crafting though. I’m more of a hide-under-the-covers type of person.

    I hope you feel better soon. Hang in there!

    I started prometrium this cycle, and it’s slowly evolving from, “man, I feel a little irritable” to raving bitch (seriously? I can’t just punch someone in the face for existing?). I’ve had to be pretty open about being on hormone supplements with a few of my coworkers to explain why their usually sweet, patient, positive coworker is angry and hateful. And I can’t count how many times I’ve had to apologize to hubby lately. Poor guy.

    I hope that you get more happy, calm, positive moments, and this is your time so you don’t have to deal with the patches anymore!

    Pamela’s makes a delish gluten free choc cake mix. You can find it at whole foods. There is a tip on the back of the box that if you have a waffle iron….take the cake mix and pour it in the waffle maker….the recipe says you can put ice cream on it…but in the interest of good health…it is also awesome if you top it with fresh strawberries and little bit of whipped topping. Lower in calories…some fruit thrown in for health and the little choco waffle on the bottom is just the right amount of sweetness to make you feel really like you are having something really bad when it is not.

    Hang in there…I was lucky that those patches never really did much but mess with my sleep. I hope the time flies quickly and you are seeing two lines on a pregnancy test ASAP.
