Oh the roller coaster. Yesterday I started getting all the twinges I remember from my first two cycles, so I decided this has worked. Of course, I could be getting those twinges *every single month* and just don’t notice them because I’m not hypersensitive to every little thing that is going on with my body. So I’m going to take Cristy’s advice and just stop thinking. I have my cheering section to think positive thoughts for me. I don’t need to do any thinking for myself.
I went to acupuncture yesterday which was wonderful. I don’t think I have ever been this calm and relaxed in my entire life. It’s really nice. I don’t know if it will make a difference for the outcome of this cycle, but I’m feeling much better about everything. I’m in a good place.
I made no progress on “the list” yesterday. I did make a tres leches cake however, for book group tonight. We read State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, which takes place in the Brazilian rain forest (and has an interesting infertility twist; it’s an excellent book). We try to have theme meals for the books we read, and I know tres leches cake isn’t technically Brazilian (is it Mexican?) but I think it is delicious, and I wanted to see if I could make one. I’ll let you know how it turned out.
