Sanity has once again returned to our household. Thank you, Buddha! I had two good days of emotional instability and then *ah* everyone got to breathe again ... Momma L wasn't going to cry if you did.
However, now my ovaries are making themselves known basically around the clock. The soreness really only seems to hit when I'm laying down, but I feel them far more whenever I decide to run up the stairs, bend over to put laundry in the washer or, well, just stand in one place looking lost. At my acupuncture appointment today, she decided to connect some electrical stims to the needles in my abdomen. During the 30 or more minutes I lay in there it didn't bother me much, but afterward oh wow! did my ovaries throb and pulse like the stims were not only still there, but the ampage was pumped up. Good times. Rock 'n Roll Ovaries!
The strangest is that I feel and look bloated, but everything is still fitting the same. Not sure how that is possible and obviously I'm not terribly put out if I can still wear my clothes, but I think it's just this constant awareness of my abdomen and reproductive organs that I can't seem to get used to - yeah, I knew they were there before; OV kindly reminds me every month - but I've never thought of, talked about and felt them so consistently as I have these last few days.
I've probably been total dullsville with all my IVF-speak lately. Tell me to shut up already, people!*
*And this is only the beginning. Poor you.
