Today is CD 1 and I started my birth control. Yes that very pack of birth control that I had to explain in detail to Dr. Gillard was necessary to get me pregnant. I still think she needs to go back to med school.
I've been cramping with bend over moaning pains off and on for two days before I started to bleed. I already know this cycle is going to horrible. With any luck I'll look back on the beginning of this and say it was all worth it as I go through every known emotion over the next few months.
I reminded my husband last night that the Alora patches make me very cranky the night before a new patch is applied. I found out why when read all about the side effects online. I really wish I could have gotten pregnant an easier way. Must remind myself daily this is all worth it.
I'm eager, I'm excited, I'm elated! Thank you God for gifting me this chance.
