Harder Than You Think

August 10, 2011
Estrace is harder than you think! I was all excited because I didn't have to be home every night between 6-7pm to take multiple shots. Sweet, right? Instead, I have to take these teeny tiny pills every 6 6am, 12pm and 6pm. Easy, right? OMG! NOT!!!

This is way harder than you think! The first couple days I was just trying to remember on my own. I would look at the clock at like 10 til then in 10 minutes, I would totally forget and by the time I remembered it was like 5-10 past. So then I decided to put a reminder on my email for the noon pill. I finally broke down and set my phone to have the alarm go off at 6am, 12pm and 6pm. It's working but the only bad thing is if I leave my phone in the car, it'll go off until you silence it AKA kill the battery. Not to mention the alarm scares the bejeezus out of me every time because it's so loud and not expected.

I also only have 1 bottle of pills and I seriously carry it around with me EVERYWHERE. At night it goes on the sink and I take with my prenatal in the morning. Then I put it in my pocket and I jingle around pills all day. So far in less than one week, I've forgotten them twice and had to turn around and go home. The first time I was still on our street so it was a quick turn around and I was good to go. Today I was halfway to work and had to turn around and go all the way home. So between remembering what time to take the pills and remembering the pills, it's way harder than you think!!!

I hate having to take and pill/med at the same time every day (several times a day)...I can NEVER remember to do it.

I have such a good feeling that there will be a happy ending to this story..or should I say a happy beginning to a beautiful life? :)

I had to do estrace twice a day. With my last FET, that resulted in this baby, I was so lazy about it. I had given up mentally and said I wouldnt stress about the little stuff like being precisely on time. Funny, if you think about it..

I always set the alarm on my phone for the 2 times.
