Ewey and Gooey

Here's your warning, this post is going to be TMI. If you don't want to see my bruised belly or hear about my cervical discharge then you should stop reading here. When I started this blog, I told myself I was going to be open and honest and not hide, even the gross stuff, that is going on because those are the things everyone should be warned about but no one wants to tell!!!

First things first, remember how I said on Wednesday that when DH gave me the lupron shot it bled? Like a lot!!! Well, we were in a panic to get the menopur so I didn't think too much about it until I went to give my shots last night. Whoa-bruise city! My stomach had been sore all day but I never thought to LOOK at it!
And so you can see where it is in comparision to everything (please disregard my fat rolls and my nice tie dye shirt, I was in my pajamas!).

So far that's been the only main big bruise. DH was super concerned, it was cute. I'm pretty sure he must have hit a vein and that's why it bled so much and bruised. Okay, moving on to the REAL gross stuff...
This is where it gets gross. When I went to the bathroom yesterday, I had SUPER THICK discharge. OMG!?! It was insane! It was there three different times when I went. I, of course, googled it and saw on some forums that it was normal because you were trying to rise your E2 levels and I also read that it will probably get even worst. I called Dr. Val's office just to make sure it was okay. Andrea called me back and asked me if it smelled funny or was itchy like an infection and to just watch it. She said she *thought* it might be from the drugs...duh!
This was when I asked if Mary was out of the office and they'd told me she had emergency surgery-yikes! I asked about her this morning and they said she'd probably still be out another week but there was another nurse that could help me. I nodded and said, "I know but I just like Mary." The nurse smiled and said, "I understand." I left her card that said get well.
Gross thing, well not really gross as much as TMI, but I wasn't sure if I was feeling the affect of the drugs. Well this past week, I've felt really bloated and gasy. I just assumed it was all the Thanksgiving meals I had, now I'm thinking its the good 'ole ovaries. During my u/s this morning, the tech, Margaret (which made me think of "Are you there God? It's me Margaret." told me I was now officially on "no jostling" orders. I went to the bathroom later and I'm like afraid to push too hard because I don't want to jostle anything!
Another side effect, even though I am SO FAR from pregnant, I think I have pregnancy brain. First the shot without meds, then running out of meds, then I forgot something at work, almost left the house without keys the other day...seriously, I think I'm going to have to make a checklist to make sure I get out the door with everything...including myself!
Another totally not pregnant but thing I've noticed, is that I get kind of queasy. If I take the prenatal without breakfast shortly after, my stomach gets all I-want-to-get-sick-but-have-nothing-to-get-sick-with. Then the other day I was eating lunch and someone was talking about their toe and I started to get queasy. It's weird!
So there's the ewey, gooey and grossness I've experience so far...don't forget about being leaky too. OH! The funny thing when I called DH and told him about the discharge over the phone, he was like, what's that? I told him I'd tell him later. Now waiting on Dr. Val's office to call with results from this AM...
