FET #3 Update
Friday is my lining check. Things feel like they are happening so quickly. This past week flew because I have been straight out at work on a project. I have still been getting get my workouts in and taking at least one day off a week to rest. I will probably cut out lifting at the end of this week and just stick to walking at a moderate pace. This is the part that always kills me. I LOVE working out and feel amazing when I do. When I have to cut it out completely for 2-3 weeks I start feeling awful. Of course a baby is way more important but the fact is this is round #5. At this point we are close to the end of our IVF journey and I have already done this four times before with nothing to show for it. So when you get nothing out of IVF except some tears and maybe a little more dignity taken away it’s hard for me to say it’s worth it to get nothing.
I have been on Estrace for a week now and am just at the point to start feeling the side effects. Cranky, depressed, bloated and insomnia oh my. I have been eating very healthy and besides the drugs my body feels the best I have felt in a long time. I just hope the stress doesn’t catch up to me and throw me off. It has been much easier now that the hubby has been eating good in the New Year. I am pretty sure he gained some IVF weight as well.
Last Weekend Eats
It has been awhile since I posted and another weekend has almost gone by but here is some tasty eats from last weekend. Last Sunday we had Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin that was marinated in Terriyaki Marinade and Zucchini Sticks! Yum! These pics don’t look so appetizing but dinner was really good.
Next time I need a dipping sauce for the zucchini….maybe marinara or healthy ranch dressing? Tonight we will be trying Eggplant Fries. Hmmm…..sounds interesting and I bet they will be really good.
