I got this amazing drawing at an art event recently. I love that it shows a little girl just being herself with no concern about what the world thinks she should be. I can definitely relate to this kid as I have always been a bit of a weirdo. I hung this up in my bedroom and I have found myself looking at it as a representation of my future ( fingers crossed) child. It helps to ground me when I’m feeling lonely or overwhelmed with this process and all the big steps ahead.
I’m now on day five of my injections. I’m starting to feel really bloated which I’m visualizing as tons of healthy eggs growing away. I’m also super thirsty, getting small headaches, and exhausted. I took a four hour nap after breakfast and woke up with night sweats from a dream involving the band Sleater Kinney and a large pond. I’ll happily take this over mood swings, anxiety, or depression.
