Walking 500 miles

by statia on February 2, 2006

Two days of serious cramps sans the Period Fairy™ can cause severe crankiness, bloating and overeating.

It sucks that much more when you actually want the Period Fairy™ to show up. There’s only been a few times in my life that I actually wanted to start my period. All of them are infertility related.

After I ate the entire worlds supply of chocolate last night and started feeling guilty and even more fat and bloated, I was graced with the crimson tide. Today is full of calls to the OB, calls to my RE and making sure that everything is in order. Everything in fact, is, in order.

And now, it’s finally time to start the show.

Might I add: HOLY FUCKING SHIT, WE’RE ACTUALLY DOING THIS AND AM I FUCKING CRAZY?

Generally speaking, wanting children does require a certain amount of ‘crazy’. Not that it stops anyone, of course.

Good luck!
