Thursday schmursday

Thanks for all your comforting words yesterday ladies, you're the best :)

I'm feeling less sorry for myself today, which is a good thing because I need the energy to deal with this headache I've had for the past 2 days, along with the unusually heavy AF. You ladies weren't kidding when you said the first couple C's after the lap tend to be heavier! Yuck. I'm sure that's why I have the headache too.

Today I added raspberry leaf tea to my infertility regimen. Well, the word "regimen" may be a bit strong for what I actually do. I just drink 2 cups of green tea every day and try to remember to take my vitamins! Anyway, the tea is not bad, kind of like a mellower version of black tea with a little earthy sweetness to it. I haven't quite decided how often and when to drink it. Maybe every other day until O? Does anyone else drink it?

Well, not much else to say. Let's hope the afternoon goes by more smoothly than this morning did (I got blood on the bathmat, hit my head on a cabinet door, and almost got side-swiped on the freeway). At least I get to leave work early, I'm getting that x-ray for my neck so I can FINALLY go see my chiropractor. I'm dyin' here!

Glad you are feeling better!! Sorry you are experiencing a crappy AF. AF alone just sucks. We spend all month trying to ward her off.

Ugg.

Have a special dinner and relax tonight.

I am glad you feel better too!

Tell af off. She definitely needs to get a life.

Great to hear you are feeling better emotionally although BOOOO about the headache!!!

I drank red raspberry leaf too!! Was really expecting it to taste like raspberries.... not so, lol. But I didn't mind the taste, sort of earthy tasting. Enjoy!

Glad you are feeling a little better on the emotions front...

I remember how heavy my period was after the first lap, I thought I was going to pass out and bleed to death. ;) It'll let up by next month, hopefully. I suppose I am lucky now, because I am still on Lu.pron so this last one didn't make me bleed at all.

Heh. Lucky me.

They have to do a neck x-ray just for a referral? Yuck. I hope everything goes okay!

Boo to headaches! I've actually had a dull one for the past 2 days too. I know it's due to AF getting ready to start, but blah this is one thing I would love to not have to deal with.
I have a question about the raspberry tea, does it have caffeiene in it? I'm not a big tea drinker (at all) like MAYBE 1 cup a YEAR. Does it taste gross? I'm so afraid of eating and or drinking gross stuff. I'm a baby.

Heather - No, there is no caffeine in the RLT. (Thank goodness, I'm a caffeine wimp! Even Excedrin makes me jittery!) And it doesn't taste gross. At first I thought it had a "leafy" flavor to it, but after the first couple sips, it tasted more and more like regular old black tea, but not quite as strong. It has a very mellow flavor, so fear not!! :)
