Three days and counting since I first felt the beginnings of a sore throat. I've spent every minute since willing it away, drinking OJ, taking vitamins, working out, thinking positive thoughts, sacrificing rats. Okay, not the rat part. Just 4 more days until my D&C which means 4 more days to get rid of this bug that is trying its best to be the next detour on our road to babyland. My pre-op appointment is tomorrow in the middle of the day, sandwiched between back to back meetings at work. Sounds like fun, huh?
I'm actually quite excited that tomorrow is Friday. This week was incredibly busy at work and I think I handled the stress quite well, if I do say so myself. We are going out to dinner after work tomorrow with some friends to a tapas/wine bar, which I'm SOOOO looking forward to. No big plans for the weekend other than a little holiday shopping, some work on my niece's Christmas present, and hopefully a lot of rest.
It's supposed to be cold and snowy all weekend. B and I have been building up miles on United for years now and actually have more than enough for two free tickets. We've talked about using those miles for a trip to Hawaii to replay our honeymoon, but just can't stomach planning anything for fear it will interfere with a cycle. We had actually talked about taking a break and taking that trip had our first FET failed. But when the FET was cancelled, all I wanted to do was move forward and get back on track as quickly as possible. It's so frustrating getting that United statement every month and watching the miles just sit there. Poor, sad, lonely miles. They just want to be used.
