One. Every date that I think about is in relation to our IVF schedule. Someone wants to go to lunch in June, my response is, "no doc appointments that day, but that could change and that's 3 days after I start drugs, and 10 until eggs come out." Now most of that goes on in my head, but depending on the person, sometimes I say it. EVERYTHING is based around our IVF dates. And soon "times" I'm afraid.

I've been a bit headache-y and emotional lately, and after a quick email with Holly H., it's been determined that that relates to the birth control (and stress of the upcoming cycle). But it also relates to other things. I get a mild cramp and my first thought is, "Oh no, what's going on down there?!" I'm also E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D!

Four. We already hit emotions a bit, but it bears saying again. Have teared up at the most inopportune times and as Melslaw said yesterday, "you are already a crier!" so I am more than a bit worried about
Five. I'm nervous. I'll be moving along fine in my day and one of these recollections stops me cold realizing that June starts next week, and with that IVF.
There you have it folks...IVF Brain...now what was I going to do next?
