So today is CD1 for me. When I was in last week the nurse gave me the option of either taking Provera, or getting a Progesterone shot in the butt. The Pros and Cons:
Pro: It's a pill that you swallow.
Con: You take 10 of them, then wait another 5-6 days until you get your period. Teenage-style acne.
Pro: You get your period within 5-10 days after the shot. No pills to forget.
Con: You get a shot in your butt. Your butt is really sore for 2+ days. Did I mention you get a shot in your butt?
So I took the shot like a champ. If I had known that I could get a shot this whole time I would've never ever taken the Provera. It feels like such a waste of time. So now we're starting over. I've been trying to work out a bit more and eat healthier. And by eat healthier, I mean eating Chipotle. Long story short, I am obsessed with Chipotle burrito bowls and believe that they helped to cure me from POTS Syndrome. I ate them before my wedding and lost a bunch of weight while still being healthy. Chipotle is like the Fountain of Wellness for me. Plus they're so yummy. So when I went back to California for a wedding last weekend, I bought 10 to bring home and freeze. I swear that I'll get pregnant this cycle because of this.
Also, I got this as my monthly horoscope. And I am putting all of my eggs in this basket:
Really?!?! I know I'm not the most rational person in the world right now, but I'll take that. I'm planning on being positive and rocking this cycle.
